I don't know why the carpark carrier came down and didn't detect my car when I was going into my condo.

 

Usually, it won't even come down when I follow closely behind the car in front and it did and I stopped and then it knocked my bonnet. Now has 2 small dent caused by metal and scratch somemore. Heart pain coz new car.

 

Where can I get these fixed without forking out too much? This is a SUBARU Forester. It's such a small damaged, like 2 dots but have to fix coz scratched. 

 

Can someone advise? Boohoo... Took car from hubby for 1 day and kena this. Am I sway or what? Or rather, is he sway or what...  [;)]

Yes, get it fix or rust may developed.

Members here will advise where are the optimal shop to visit, i have no experience sorry.

Yes, unlucky - new car and borrow from husband !

 

But perhaps check with condo management 

1) to ensure the fault will not happen again (hitting another car)

2) ? get some form of compensation.

1) The driver is at fault for tailgating. Nothing wrong with the barrier...

 

2) More likely get backcharged for damaging the barrier..

Even tailgating doesnt mean the barrier should come down, right? There should be sensor to sense there is a car behind or near the barrier. Lol.

This happens in my condo as well. The barrier sometimes comes down suddenly even when i am the only car passing through.

 

That's why the management stated that drivers should not tailgate when passing through the barriers. If the barrier does come down, the driver can still reverse the car to pass through again.

 

So TS, it really was your own fault for tailgating.

I always follow behind and even security guard always ask us to go through fast to clear it. It detects and won't come down if "tailgating". In fact, if there's a distance between you and the car in front, the barrier will come down and jerk and go upwards if detect 2nd car.. Maybe not good for barrier, that's why security guard always ask us to go through fast if there's 2 cars.

 

Today is a part time security guard on duty. He claimed he didn't do anything so I am going to request to view video and will definitely feedback to management.

 

SuPerBoRed, where's PDR? Thanks for your help!

 

Don't think mine is frosted colour.. It's the Forester Blue.

TS, I'm puzzled. you are entering your own condo, why need to tailgate? Not like there is gonna be extra charge to your car what. Won't hurt to go in one by one. But since you choose not to wait and took the risk then have to bear the consequences lor. 

 

Btw, PDR refers to Paintless Dent Removal.

High jack the thread alittle..

 

What if the barrier is manually operated by the security guard in guard house?

 

Happened to me once, the barrier was up. Guard told me clear to go in, so when i went in, i think he pressed the button to up the barrier thinking its in the down position to let me in without first checking the positioning of the barrier.

 

Can claim against the management like that? It's obviously due to the guard fault.

Actually, I suspect so also or it's just a sway accident. Coz the part timers are very ngiao, won't even come out of the guard house when there's delivery for eg. to check on the delivery guy's vehicle and take down details. They wanted to delivery guy to go to them instead and my guard house is high up. Some blur and didn't know and obviously didn't read sign that they have to go to guard house.

 

Once, I had to go down myself coz I thought guard was away, ended up guard sitting inside thinking he is king!  [bounce1]

 

I would want to claim against the management but feel bad for the guy who isn't earning much and will kena also. But they cannot happy happy just close on me if they don't see properly right? They can always follow me down the carpark and ask for details if they think I am not a resident. How can they damage someone's car?!  If I have driven faster, it may hit top of car and kena worse damage? Grr...

 

Hubby is in management committee anyway and he's going to ask them for video. If it's a freak accident then at least must make sure prob is rectified to prevent further cases on others too.

 

Anyway, did you manage to claim from you management for your case?

Hey, if you press on accelerator already then the thing comes down suddenly, you think you have time to react until your car totally clear?

 

Wait til one of you guys kena. 

 

We're here to ask for solutions, why keep pointing out whose fault it is?

L23,

 

What do you mean by seeing 'danger coming'? I do not understand your sentence.

 

I turning into the Condo, I saw the barrier was up. I came to a stop and gave a nod to the guard (could have just went in cos barrier up, like so many people). The guard nodded back at me and gave me clear to move in. I moved in halfway, barrier came down.

 

Obviously the bloody guard took for granted thinking that the barrier was in it's 'default' position of down and so he pressed the button to open it up for me, but cos of the barrier position, it goes down instead of up.

 

Anyway, i don't think you properly read my last post, so...

Similar to elevator doors safety, a decent parking barrier system should have non tamperable safety sensors to prevent the barrier from hitting the car, regardless of what button the guard has pressed. Who will actually implement a system that allows the guard an option to "chop" a car in half LOL?!?

I think the "no tailgating" warning is more to prevent parking fee avoidance than safety lah. The safety sensors should detect two cars tailgate scenario just like a single longer vehicle. It may not be able to charge the second car's fee, but it should not bring the barrier down.

For TS case, most likely due to lauyah sensor tuning that the vendor can reconfigure. I've seen our vendor tuning my condo's system after some initial reports of non-responsive barrier. I've been really close to front cars a few times but never kenna "karate chop" so far *touch wood*
