A driver was spotted tailgating another car to enter and exit a carpark without paying, Stomp reported.

Apparently this system of cheating works because the carpark gantry is unable to detect the second vehicle - which is too close, says the reader who highlighted the incident.


The reader was at the Ang Mo Kio (AMK) Hub carpark when he witnessed a vehicle tailgating another car to enter the carpark for free. This incident occurred on Dec 15, 9pm.

The reader told Stomp: "The owner of this vehicle (in the above photo) followed the vehicle in front closely and exited the carpark without paying his parking fee.

"This tactic works and the 2nd vehicle will not be detected as another vehicle exiting the gantry," the reader added.

"Carpark management usually will not pursue the matter further as the cost to investigate may not be viable.

"To these vehicle owners who try to cheat the system: If you don't have money to park - don't drive!

A spokesperson for AMK Hub's management said: "The current system has been designed to ensure the safety of drivers entering and exiting AMK Hub's carpark.

"AMK Hub Mall Management will investigate incidents on a case-by-case basis and reserves the right to take appropriate legal action when necessary."

That's nothing, if you go down to the botanic gardens on weekend mornings, you will see Mercs, BMWs and Porsches doing the same thing!

Is the technology used by HDB/URA inferior to that used by LTA ERP gantry ? I rarely hear any ERP cheats. Also tailgating to exit without paying carpark was long reported in NUS parking, however the system has been upgraded to minimize the cheat rates. Perhaps HDB/URA should talk to NUS about it. cool.gif

Just go back to the man-operated system.

Create jobs
Immediate action when gate breaks down
No more cheating
Pay by cash; keep the cashcard solely for ERP

Really a disgrace. What would his/her children think when they see this?

He would tell his children this is the way to save money!! And probably he will also tell them that how he saved to buy this 2L car.

When I shut my mouth and turn and walk away, it doesn’t mean you’ve won. It simply means that you are not worth any more of my time.

To all the I-am-not-cheapo car driver,

1) if you see the exit barrier being stucked at vertical position or knocked down by some idiot driver but the ERP system is still working to deduct cashcard, will you still insert your cashcard to your ERP reader? especailly when 10 cars ahead of you just zoom past the gantry.

2) Do you ALWAYS tear your coupon that exceed the time you use?

3) Do you display valid coupon while waiting in your car or standing < 10 metre from your car that is in a parking lot?

4) Do you display valid coupon when taking your lunch at coffeeshop, and your car is parked right front of you?

5) For a 5 minutes chores, you will always find a parking lot instead of illegal park.

If you answer all YES, than you are not cheapo.
