News: Parking Bully Irks Condo Residents

Jan 2, 2019


Ng Foon Hwee, a unit owner at Villa Crystal Condominium, is irked by the alleged vandalism incident on his car within the condo premises in Segambut.

He revealed that the incident occurred after he requested the security guard to clamp the car illegally parked at his parking space.

“As I was driving towards my parking space, I saw a BMW parked there, so I asked the guard to clamp the car…When I returned to the carpark half hour later, the guards were unlocking the clamp with the car owner present,” he said.

“I discovered that the car owner was to be my next door neighbour and he has been renting out his unit for quite a while.”

Ng then noticed that his car’s left side mirror was badly damaged.

But while he suspected it to be the doing of the BMW owner, the latter denied when asked, saying he had only parked at the area for 10 minutes, reported The Star.

The CCTV footage was not of much help as it was too blurry to recognise the faces of the two men who were seen kicking Ng’s car.

According to Villa Crystal Condominium joint management body (JMB) chairman Deric The, this incident had happened before, in which the same tenant parked his car at the parking space of other owners since last year. The tenant paid the penalty for the many times that his car was clamped.

“Last year, it happened again. He went berserk and removed the clamp by himself and threw it away…In another incident, the guard asked him to move his car but he refused. His car was clamped for four days and caused inconvenience to lot owner,” said Teh.

“He paid the penalty of RM200 with only coins.”

The noted that the Housing and Local Government Ministry and Commissioner of Buildings (COB) Department have no rules in place against homeowners or tenants with bad attitude.

With this, Kepong Community Service Centre head Yee Poh Ping called on the authorities to look into the matter as it can pose a threat to residents.
