  1. Is this a Parking Idiot? Yes or No? Was the driver selfish in the way he/she parked his/her car, depriving others of a legitimate parking lot?
  2. This is probably the most civil confrontation I’ve ever seen, while keeping a mildly aggressive edge. What happened? A confrontation took place at Defu Lane when an uncle did not park properly. The video immediately opens with the person behind the camera asking “How many lots did you park in?” in Chinese. Credit to the uncle, he asked the person recording to follow him to his parking spot, saying “I don’t want to argue”. The aggrieved recorder however was still upset, as he could not open his door due to how he parked. The uncle maintained a very calm attitude, maintaining his refusal to argue by coming to his spot. This caused a “bro moment”, as both parties were temporarily “steady” and agreeing not to argue. Alas, when they finally arrived to the lot, we found that the uncle indeed did not park properly as his Nissan Sentra was taking up two lots. The uncle did try to explain himself but the video cut off before he could complete it. However, I do think it’s not entirely his fault. We can see that the car had a shorter parking lot compared to others, and was between 2 trucks. It was likely an attempt to avoid being hit by either just in case, as he seems too civil about the accusation. Online Chatter A few people wanted to hear how the uncle would explain his way out of this one. And regardless of his reasons, people still noted he did not park properly. And if you’re in the wrong on the internet, prepare for the wave of criticism. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  3. Failed to display Parking Coupon in Lalan Kunning @ Pelangi Area for Lunch. Found a RM$30 summon on Windscreen . Can anyone help, advice How 7 Where is convenience to pay. Internet can or not ?... Appreciate yr input !
  4. Parking on double yellow? Someone thought some extra yellow would be helpful. What happened? A camcar submitted footage of someone approaching the car and supposedly peeing on it at night on 4th August. We see two people approaching the car in the video, while one of them goes off screen. If there was no context to this video we would never stick around to watch for more than 10 seconds. There is no concrete proof that someone peed on the car other than a still picture of some fluid on a bumper. I will say though, considering the two shown on camera weren’t carrying an umbrella, I doubt it was rain. So, SUS. Online chatter Quite a number of Facebook users noted how the camcar was parking illegally, as there were two yellow lines on the road in the video. Others also say the camcar deserved it for parking that way, and made jokes about the pee.
  5. Hi all Would like seek advice on where can i park cheaply for one whole day near Suntec?
  6. So I recently passed my driver's license and have been parking in empty lots whenever I can (because it's easier for me). However, my friends have told me that they think it's much easier to park with cars on either side. I don't agree with them (mainly because I am scared that I will hit a car while reversing), but I do wonder if that is the case for most drivers. Is it true that it is easier to park with cars around and if so, what are some tips in doing it properly? 😓
  7. LOL..... https://www.channelnewsasia.com/singapore/landed-property-owners-estates-parking-space-cars-residents-3399191
  8. Hi, I would like to find out more about the usage of the disabled/handicapped parking space/lot. Firstly, I do not have the handicapped sticker/label to stick on the car as I'm not a disabled or handicapped driver. But my grandparents both are having difficulties walking as one is wheel-chair bound while the other sometimes need a wheel-chair or the 4-legged walking support. There was this once when it happens that both are at my relative's place and I'm fetching them home one night. All the available lots were taken up, even the handicapped lots. Finally I waited and one driver went off from one of the handicapped lot and I went ahead to park in it before I called my grandparents to come down to where I parked. This was at the carpark where there is this area allocated for parking with only 2 lanes for incoming and outgoing cars with a continuous single white line in-between where I'm not supposed to park/wait on either side of the road. I don't have the sticker so i can't just park and leave the car there to go fetch my grandparents. As both requires some time to get ready to come down with some assistance so I can only wait for them. Then at this time, there is another car who drove by and both the male driver and his wife stared at me. I was wondering why are they staring at me so sternly? Then the man drove his car very very close to mine, almost scratching the front part of my car. All this while, he was still staring at me. Then his car screeched and stop in front of my car and still staring at me. I'm really wondering what's wrong with this man. Then an old man came down from the car with a walking stick, then I realized why he's been staring at me. I wanted to get off my car and ask if he needs the parking lot so since I'm waiting so let him go first, but his wife came down from the car and stared at me and then he quickly drove round and parked his car opposite mine. I'm really puzzled, then i checked if his car has the disabled/handicapped sticker, he didn't have it. So why is he staring at me all the time? Then when his wife left the old man walking halfway on the path towards the block and quickly went back to the spot where he dropped them, he drove his car quickly again so close to my car (almost scratching) and screeched and stopped in front. Then sped off. I really can't understand this action. I understand that such lots are definitely reserved for those who really need it. But waiting in such lots for handicapped people are also allowed right while they take time to come down? I'd checked with LTA and they said that so long the waiting time is not considerably long and there are no other cars with the disabled parking sticker/label waiting around (if have, i'll have to give way), otherwise it's alright to use it in such situations. But I would still like to check with the people here who are more experienced in their years of driving in terms of morally or driving ethics, can i use the lots for my situation? Would like to hear constructive feedback. If it's not alright for me to do so, how else can I wait for my grandparents when they go to my relative's place again in future? Thanks for taking time to read and reply.
  9. anyone can advise parking at Vivo, Harbourfront area from Fri afternoon to Sun afternoon costs how much? Is there a maximum cap per day if go by the published parking rates? Heehee, gg to huat huat over the weekend..
  10. Hi, Just saw a ticket in my car wiper today, ticket for parking at double yellow line issued by cisco police. My fault clearly. Do you know what is the penalty (how much) for this offence? I believe no demerit for this. Anyone know a link where all these are described officially? Thanks.
  11. One driver at my estate has been tailgating cars and even motorcycles out of our carpark for the past one year, close to two. This is on a daily basis. I know, because we leave around the same time every day . He parks at the white lots so if Fatimah comes they won't be able to check. Though I believe the system should only have his entry and not exit records. I've already reported to HDB fyi. Would you report or let it slide? Can still close eye if motorcyclists exit by the gap or if you wanna tailgate your friend out if you visit their house, but at least buy season parking for your own carpark la.
  12. One thing that annoys me is the inability to find an available lot in a carpark - but that's part and parcel of driving, right? However, what's worse is when you stumble upon an empty lot, and another car decides to be a d1ck and 'vultures' your parking lot away. Just like the couple of a Mercedes-Benz GLB200 here: What Happened? A Singapore-registered Mercedes-Benz GLB200 swooped to the front of the cam car and stole the parking lot that the cam car was waiting for. However, this whole act was only made possible by the 'chope culture' that inspired the actions of the Mercedes-Benz SUV's female passenger. While waiting for the Toyota to exit the parking lot, the female passenger of the Mercedes-Benz alighted from the SUV, simply stood around the parked Toyota and acted blur. As the Toyota sedan exited the lot, she stood in front of the cam car to block and 'chope' the empty lot for her Mercedes-Benz GLB200. The Mercedes-Benz SUV driver reversed almost immediately into the empty parking lot as soon as the Toyota left the lot. In response to the Mercedes driver's actions, the cam car driver repeatedly sounded his horn at the German SUV. And from the honking alone, I can easily sense the frustration and anger coming from the cam car driver. Netizens' Comments NGL, this GLB200 really asking for it by pulling this stunt in Malaysia. I mean why rage so much when there's an empty lot with a green indicator just up ahead (assuming if the carpark availability system is working fine)😐 eh don't give idea leh. Next thing you know, people are gonna use oversized tissue papers to 'chope' parking lots already. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news, and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  13. Have you guys ever found yourself in funny situations as a driver? Maybe you went up the curb by accident or perhaps you were going too fast and almost ran over a few birds. But I bet you can't beat this! A curious sight unfolded in the wee hours of the morning today in an unidentified location (anyone want to guess?) with police even coming down to check up on the scene--- a BlueSG car parked on a grassy slope! The scene in question. You can see our hardworking SPF at one corner: And we get a zoom-in as the driver goes past our main star, the one and only, BlueSG car! Seems like this driver was not the only one who noticed the odd scene. There was another screengrab from a separate bystander, seemingly a resident at one of the neighbouring public housing blocks, which provided more of an aerial view here: Wow. Just wow Why liddat harh? What was it doing there? Was the driver inebriated? Was his GPS not working? So many questions unanswered. So as always, I took to scouring the reliable comments section to look for (hilarious) explanations: ROFLMAO. Not BlueSG but BlurSG! Haha! Indeed, it would take a lot of carelessness to end up in such a place... Oh my my. That's a saucy, scandalous suggestion right there! Well, as once famously said: We think this is a much nicer way to say "bak chiu tak stamp". LOL. It seems like a few people agree with them too. Last, but not least, this netizen gave a quite simple answer that made us roar with laughter: Haha! That must be it, surely, confirm plus chop. *wipes away tears* After all, one of BlueSG's marketable points is the easy accessibility to many charging points around the island, no? A little humor never hurts in unusual situations like these! What happens next? We are assuming the police have taken over and will be doing their due investigations. After all, as funny as it seems, it is an offence to park on a grass verge in Singapore! Image taken from LTA website Such an act could lead to the offender being slapped with fines from $70 up to $110 for light vehicles, and for heavy vehicles, the penalties starting from $100 up to $150. Psst, by the way, where do you all think this place is? ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news, and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  14. Last weekend, there was a story that went viral of a Jaguar XE driver causing a huge jam on the single-lane road just so he could snatch up the parallel parking lot, only leaving when the police were called on him. Watch the video for yourself below. The video mainly shows the dispute between the Jaguar XE and the Honda vehicle. The black Jaguar was jutting out of a parking lot along Cheong Chin Nam Road with a male driver in white pants standing beside the vehicle. Next to it was a black Honda Odyssey stationary in the middle of the street. From this particular video, it seemed as if the Jaguar XE driver was refusing to budge so as to secure the parallel parking lot, thereby causing a huge jam on the single-lane road. The owner of the Jaguar XE, presumably the male in the white pants, was yelled at by a woman wearing a black jumpsuit and a pink top. This has been confirmed to be the Honda driver. He has been branded as an entitled douchebag by many netizens, However, is there more to this story? The Jaguar XE driver’s account According to the Jaguar XE driver, he actually did not intend to park at that spot at all and had actually wrongly entered the parking lot. He also tried to reverse his car after the realization of his error. According to him, his car gear selector knob was stuck as well, making it necessary for him to restart the car multiple times. He accused the Honda driver of being aggressive towards him, oscillating between hurling vulgarities at him and “punching violently” on his car window and explained that he remained stationary so as to wait for the arrival of the police. He now claims to be fearful of his safety and reputation after the swarm of online comments that seemed to blame him for this incident. Revealing that the car actually belongs to his girlfriend, he claims to be worried that the videos would draw negative press to her. Is he telling the truth? Judging from the video, he seems to be appear pretty relaxed with one hand using his phone and after which with both hands in his pockets. According to healthline, one's posture can offer some insight as to what someone is currently thinking. And based on this article, leaning on something, like a car for example like how this man is doing, can often suggest boredom or disinterest. Generally, he seems to give off an arrogant, disinterested vibe as well. It seems as if he wasn't that anxious to get out of that spot after all. Netizen Comments According to the comments, there seems to be a lot of negative press surrounding him. Some Netizens don’t seem to buy his explanation either It seems as if the perception of him by the public is not exactly stellar. Personally, I feel like the Jaguar XE driver might just be trying to save his @$$. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  15. Whenever someone drives like a total d-bag, the first thought that comes to mind is, "Must be a car brand that starts with 'A', 'B' or 'M'." (Pretty sure you know which brands I am referring to) And it is not surprising why this occurs. Watch the following videos below: Incident #1 What Happened? The incident above occurred along Campbell Lane, where the cam car was approaching a vacant parking lot. However, as the cam car approached the vacant lot, a man clad in a black t-shirt and jeans stepped out to the front of the cam car to block his path. The man appeared to have done that to 'chope' the vacant lot for someone. Just then, a black Mercedes-Benz S320 swooped in towards the direction of the cam car and parked against the flow of traffic in the vacant lot. The cam car driver did not seem to have reacted during his encounter with the entitled black S320 driver. Incident #2 What Happened? In this separate incident that occurred at the carpark of Queen Street, a silver Mercedes-Benz S320 drove against the flow of traffic in an attempt to take a shortcut and 'steal' a parking lot from the cam car driver. Unlike the earlier incident, the cam car driver reacted to the entitled S320 driver by inching forward and cutting off the Mercedes-Benz. At 0:32 of the video, the cam car driver intentionally stopped alongside the entitled Mercedes driver - And this got me thinking, did the cam car driver scold or made any hand gesture towards the Mercedes-Benz driver? The bad rep of 'conti' car drivers Incidents like the above give 'conti' car drivers a bad reputation. And unfortunately, the public often remembers the bad rather than the good. Hence, it is self-evident why 'conti' drivers are stained with such a reputation, which will unlikely go away soon. Netizens' Comments Cam car #1 didn't react to the Mercedes and got called out for poor driving skills🥲 Cam car #2 reacted to the Mercedes and got bashed by netizens. Geez. True dat. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news, and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community. Join us today!

  18. Hi, I want to buy over Season Parking at Paya Lebar Square or Singpost Centre at Paya Lebar. If you are selling, please contact me. Thank you.
  19. The 'chope-ing' culture is prominent in Singapore and it is usually observed when dining out at coffee shops or hawker centres. And unfortunately, this toxic culture has been shaped to be part of the Singapore identity. Watch the product of our toxic culture unfold before your very eyes: What Happened? This incident occurred at an open-air carpark at Block 114 Geylang Lorong 3. Two 'ah-mas' stood in a vacant white parking lot to 'chope' in a supposedly crowded carpark. As a result, they prevented a mini-van from parking at the vacant lot, which indirectly obstructed the traffic flow in the carpark. The van driver then alights from his vehicle to film the elderly ladies' absurd actions. Due to the obstruction, vehicles started piling up behind the mini-van. Toxic and Self-Centered Lo and behold, a Chevrolet Sonic rolls up to the parking lot and parks head-first into the lot. The driver, an elderly man, presumably the spouse of either one of the elderly ladies, alights from the car and walks across the carpark. IMO, their act of 'chope-ing' a vacant white lot is nothing but a toxic and self-centred act. Just because they insisted on having that white lot, they wasted the precious time of many other motorists. Oh, well. And those two elderly ladies probably don't have a driving license either. I guess you won't know the woes of a driver if you aren't a driver🤷‍♂️ Ps. For those wondering why the van driver did not park in the other vacant lot beside it, the reason is that it is a season parking lot (red lot). Netizens' Comments Bopian, what to do? Time for them to buy this and 'chope' more lots in the future. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news, and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  20. Hi bro/sis, Company shifting to MBC (beside PSA, HP building).. So, now I'm busy looking around for nearby parking.. The cheapest I got is $203 per month for Comtech (behind MBC) and I feel that it's a RIP-OFF! Any recommendation for nearby parking? Even if park hourly is significant cheaper, I don't mind.
  21. Left Funan at around 4.04pm today and drove over to Queensway Shopping Centre. Exited Queensway shopping centre at around 6.20pm and was surprised by the parking charge of $8+. The above info was retrieved from my cashcard. Based on the following parking rate, should it be much lesser? If it was overcharged, how can I claim the difference from the shopping centre?
  22. 1st july https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/parking-ura-hdb-car-park-higher-fines-illegal-11654998 Higher fines for parking offences from July: HDB, URA image: data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAAAAACH5BAEKAAEALAAAAAABAAEAAAICTAEAOw== (Photo: Nisha Karyn) 24 Jun 2019 11:21AM (Updated: 24 Jun 2019 11:44AM) Share this content Bookmark SINGAPORE: Motorists who do not abide by parking rules will face higher fines from July, said the Housing & Development Board (HDB) and Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA). In a joint press release on Monday (Jun 24), HDB and URA said the move would ensure that “parking fines remain an effective deterrent”. “The fine revision will only affect errant motorists, and will not impact those who abide by parking rules,” they added. ADVERTISING Fines for parking offences were last reviewed in 1991. ILLEGAL PARKING OFFENCES For parking their vehicles illegally, motorists will soon face higher fines of S$35, S$70 and S$100 respectively for motorcycles, cars and heavy vehicles. Advertisement Currently, the fines are S$25, S$50 and S$80. “From 2016 to 2018, an average of about 260,800 notices were issued each year for illegal parking,” said HDB and URA. Such cases included instances where motorists parked their cars in motorcycle or heavy vehicle parking lots, as well as non-season ticket holders who had parked their vehicles at season parking lots. COUPON, DIGITAL PARKING OFFENCES Fines for coupon and digital parking offences will also be raised, said HDB and URA. Currently, drivers of cars and heavy vehicles who park without a valid parking coupon or do not activate a digital parking session would face a S$30 and S$40 fine respectively. From July, the fines will be increased to S$40 and S$50 respectively. There will be no change in the fine quantum for motorcyclists, who currently face a fine of S$8 for such offences. Those who exceed their paid parking sessions will also face stiffer penalties. The current fines for over-parking range from S$6 to $20 for cars, and S$12 to S$40 for heavy vehicles. This will be increased to a range of S$8 to S$24 for cars, and S$16 to S$48 for heavy vehicles. There will be similarly no change in the fine quantum for motorcyclists, who currently face a fine of S$4 for such offences. HDB and URA said that from 2016 to 2018, an average of about 573,000 notices were issued each year to motorists who either did not pay the parking charges or had paid an insufficient amount at coupon parking car parks. “For car parks where the Electronic Parking System (EPS) has not been implemented, motorists can either use parking coupons, the Parking.sg app or the OneService App to pay their parking charges," said the authorities in the press release. PAYMENT EVASION OFFENCES AT EPS CAR PARKS Those who evade payment of parking charges by tailgating other vehicles or bypassing car park gantries at EPS car parks will also face higher fines. Currently, motorcycles, cars and heavy vehicles face a fine of S$25, S$50 and S$80 respectively for such offences. “To further deter errant motorists, the fines will be increased to S$35, S$70 and S$100 for motorcycles, cars and heavy vehicles respectively.” About 4,400 notices have been issued by HDB and URA annually to motorists for evasion of parking charges.

  23. If you have visited a hawker centre before. You will know that in Singapore, we have a "chope" culture. You can "reserve" your seating when you place your prized tissue paper and it will make known to the public that this seat is taken. Today we have this XMM which I am assuming is helping her boyfriend to "chope" a lot. But instead of using a parking cone to cordon the lot, she stands and reserves the lot herself. The lady driver was very polite to ask if she can take this lot. 🤣 Unfortunately, this is a very short clip. I do not know what the XMM replied. Anyway, folks I strongly do not recommend you to "chope" a parking lot. Our parking system is actually quite good. Don't take advantage of the car parks. If needed, just walk further abit. Anyway, you will need to clock 10,000 steps each day to deem you healthy. So yeah. Just walk.

  25. Anyone has lobang for season parking at Ayer Rajah Crescent blk 67,71,73,79? Willing to pay. The carpark rates are going to double due to recently opened Timbre+ Food place. Really ridiculous. Now parking is as expensive as in CBD.
