Parking Rules and Regulations

Parking near junctions (Rule 243) being one piece of advice stating: ‘DO NOT stop or park opposite or within 10 metres (32 feet) of a junction, except in an authorised parking space’. Almost all of us have parked within 10 metres of a junction at some point and as can be seen by observing car parking habits around us, many people park too close on a daily basis. parking-too-close-to-junction

So why is it illegal to park close to a junction?

As seen in the image to the right, the yellow vehicle is attempting to turn right out of the junction. The green car is obscured from the yellow cars view by the two vehicles that are parked too close to the junction. The red shaded area illustrates the drivers view of the road, by which time they are some distance into the road.

Other instances where it can prove dangerous to park close to a junction are for pedestrians crossing the road. Junctions are typically crossing areas for pedestrians. Children, wheelchair users and the elderly are particularly vulnerable when attempting to cross due to vehicles being obscured that may be turning into the junction. You must also consider unhindered access for the emergency services.

Other potential issues to consider are located at small and narrow residential streets where larger vehicles need access for deliveries. It’s not uncommon for vehicle owners to discover damage on a corner of their vehicle that’s parked close to a junction, often due to a larger vehicle having inadequate space to manoeuvre

Due to excessive vegetation in the corner sight triangle, drivers are not able to see traffic approaching from the left in time to enter or cross the intersection safely.

No Parking at Obscure and Dangerous Places

Many in Malaysia have the class D license (car). But you’ll be surprised how many really know where they cannot park.

To park in a “No Parking” area is an offence. It contravenes Section 119(2) of the R.T.O (Road Transport Ordinance 1978). The penalty is RM200.

Where are some of the places one cannot park? Amongst them are:-

1) Near Bus Stops.

A bus being a large vehicle obviously needs lots of space to park. Do not park your vehicle near such places. Remember, park your vehicle a minimum of 9 metres from a bus stop.

2) At a Fire Hydrant.

Park a car at least 3 metres from a fire hydrant. In times of emergencies, the Fire Brigade needs to stop quickly and lack of space would hamper their operations. So, avoid parking in such areas.

Most hydrants are easily recognizable. They have a large red H symbol on it.

3) In Obscure and Dangerous Places.

“Obscure” means hard to see.

Corners are a good example. Cars approaching most likely cannot be seen clearly. Putting or parking your vehicle there might cause an accident. As such, avoid parking in such situations.

4) At Cross and “T” junctions.

Park at least 9 metres from the above junctions. The above 2 places are amongst some of the most dangerous places.

Many accidents in fact happen here. Drivers have difficulty trying to come out.

A large vehicle, for example a lorry or a van parked very near a T or cross junction, hampers one’s visibility.

Are you aware that in cases of accidents, your vehicle which is parked in such places, could be quoted as the cause of the accident?

As such, you are therefore liable.

5) A Corner.

Corners are difficult areas to maneuver. Parking in such places, without doubt, makes it difficult to negotiate. Such being the case, Do not park in such places if you can.

6) Up a Hill and Down a Hill.

Going up and down such a place is not only difficult but dangerous as well. Having vehicles parked in such an area, will most definitely not help a driver at all.

Please co-operate by refraining from parking in such an area.

There might be a few other places where parking is not advisable. But the above appears to be some of the areas most likely to cause an accident.

7) Heavy vehicle and Lorry

Heavy vehicles, like lorry, crane, excavator, trailer are not encouraged to park within our taman or residential street. However, it is the jurisdiction of the JPJ(RTD) and Majlis for the enforcement.

As good drivers, we try our very best not to be involved in an accident. Let’s also try our utmost best not to get other people involved in accidents also.

Refrain then from places such as those mentioned, from parking your vehicles!

PETALING JAYA: A local actor and comedian was fined RM800 for damaging a plastic chair in a guardhouse after he was denied entry to his gated housing area for not having a security sticker.

Magistrate Salamiah Salleh said S. Gana Pragasam must serve 14 days in jail if he failed to settle the fine, which he paid.

Gana, 47, had pleaded guilty to the charge of committing mischief at the guardhouse in Taman Perumahan Atillia dan Allisia, Ara Damansara, at about 10.20pm on Aug 4.

According to facts of the case, Gana, who did not have an access card to enter the gated property where he resides, lost his cool when he was requested to use the visitor’s lane instead by a security guard…….
