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!

Providing the basics for guard

The weather is so hot in the afternoon now nearly 36°C .  Our security guards are indeed grateful to the RA committee of Taman Putra Prima 8A. The Majlis approved guard house is fully equipped with an 1H/P air condition unit, 1 wall fan, 1 table fan,  adjustable  aluminium window blind, CCTV, lavatory with clean water supply, shower rose and washing basin….

Reading from the STAR-Metro  published on 24/3/2016 (see link below), many of the guard posts in Klang Valley are without proper facilities…….

全國僅有3個地點,基於人口增加而需要增設華小,分別是在雪州蒲種、沙亞南實達阿南和柔州新山

(柔佛‧麻坡3日訊)教育部副部長張盛聞促請微型華小董家協,不要為了“救校”,而給予家長和學生交通、生活費補貼,以從其他地方轉來一兩名學生,上述作法不利學生的成長,也對學校和家長不公平。

可選擇遷校謀出路 他呼吁華社明白,停止運作沒有學生來源的學校,不代表是要消滅華小,只要有其他地方需要華小,就可以遷往該處;不過,他強調,只要是有學生來源的微小仍會繼續運作。 他指出,我國目前的情況是太多微型小學,而全國僅有3個地點,基於人口增加而需要增設華小,分別是在雪州蒲種、沙亞南實達阿南和柔州新山,其中柔州新增的百萬鎮培華二校也在今日開課了。

保安員+電眼阻不了竊案‧圍籬社區賊高一丈

(蒲種6月14日訊)蒲種治安敲警鐘,保安嚴密的高級圍籬社區也難逃“賊”術!

梳邦再也市議員葉國榮強調,儘管圍籬社區不盡能阻止罪案的發生,惟梳邦再也市議會仍鼓勵各住宅區加入圍籬計劃。

“雖然不能完全防範罪案,但圍籬社區至少可以協助降低罪案的發生率,希望各區居民盡量增設。”

他也提醒,倘若居民在申請上面對問題,可尋求該區州議員或市議員的協助;而他們也將盡量給予配合。
