  1. LTA Fines Bikers Parking On Pavement In Orchard, Netizens Ask For Temp Lots As Solution source: https://mustsharenews.com/delivery-riders-pavement/ Delivery Riders Can’t Park On Pavements, Netizens Suggest Temporary Parking Lots Technically, parking your bike on a pavement is illegal. However, sometimes there are reasons for temporary parking, especially for delivery riders. Yesterday (2 Oct), the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said they fined several delivery riders parking their bike on the pavement in Orchard Road. This comes after news reports of the amount of bikes parked in the area. However, this didn’t sit well with many riders, who said there aren’t enough parking lots in the Orchard area. They call instead for a solution to the problem, which is that there isn’t enough grace period for them. LTA fines delivery riders parking bikes on pavement Officers in plain clothes were out and about, looking out for bikers breaking the rules. The New Paper reported on 1 Oct that there were many bikers parked along the Orchard area, especially near Shake Shack. They were largely there to pick up orders from the fast food restaurant, but there aren’t any proper parking options nearby. One of the images LTA posted prominently features a GrabFood bag on the bike. This offence is punishable by a fine of up to $2,000 and/or up to 3 months’ jail. Netizens ask for solution to delivery riders on pavement However, the comments were quick to point out a seeming flaw with these fines. That is, there appears to be insufficient parking lots for bikes in the area, and the ones available aren’t cheap. One netizen points out this fact, and asks for a solution instead of the negative fining approach. Such as, a designated parking area for delivery riders. Others ask for some leniency as it’s not as though they are parking their bikes there for the entire day. MP raises issue of lack of temporary parking lots You might recall that the issue of delivery riders and their problems was raised by an MP in Parliament. Hany Soh of Marsling-Yew Tee GRC had received feedback that delivery riders tend to run into fines because of their need to park temporarily to drop off or pick up their food.
  2. Hi everyone Like to check with all of you regarding the parking lot at Paya Ubi ( both ends of the building, near to McWell or Leong Seng side). Can I park there for free(whole day) and goes about running errant at nearby area? Will the security clamp or not har or are those meant for tenant only. I have park there for 30 mins b4 while I go and check out rims and stuff, but for whole day....yet to try b4. Any one knows? TIA
  3. From this video, one of the conclusions we can draw from it is when you have just been given a ticket by the parking officer, threatening him on whether he knows who you are or not isn't going to help you get out of trouble. As seen on SG Road Vigilante's recent post on 23rd of September 2020, the offender has just gotten a parking ticket along Sturdee Road North and can be seen trying to video down the whole confrontation with the officer who just gave him a ticket. Obviously not that good at redeeming himself, the owner of the video tries to 'put pressure' on the officer by asking him whether 'he knows who he is?' and claiming that the officer is less clear about the laws than him. If you are curious as to what happens next, catch the video below and let us know how you would react if you happen to be in such a situation.
  4. 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?
  5. Now this is an interesting sight. As we have mentioned before in previous blog posts, the COVD-19 pandemic has somewhat influenced many who are forced to stay home to start working out as an excuse to head out. Hence, when we went into Phrase 2, there was a noticeable increase in traffic at our parks as many still continued to enjoy exercising, leading to some to come up with new ideas to move away from the overcrowding in parks. Check out this clip which has been shared by SG Road Vigilante, whereby the camera car chanced upon this public outdoor carpark at Fort Canning on the 9th of September which has been 'converted' into an outdoor gym. With the carpark almost full, we bet the sight of those using the carpark as a workout area annoyed the camera car driver. What do you guys reckon? Cool or not cool? Let us know!
  6.

  7. Sometimes i really wonder what makes some of these house owners think that they own the road outside their houses too. So often you see people put their trashbins along the kerb just to prevent others from parking outside their houses. I mean, the road is common property, and if there is no double yellow lines or whatsoever, it is LEGAL to park. Even if there is dbl yellow line, i can still park if i want as i am taking the risks in getting a summon. Yesterday, i parked outside this house along carpmael road (off joochiat).. there is no marking on the road, so its legal. The kerb between the 2 houses is actually long enough to accomodate my car length. I even got out the car after i parked to ensure i am not obstructing any of the unit's entrance... When i return to my car.. someone actually leaned the trashbin AGAINST (not just near) my driver's door. It is just sickening to the core. I was tempted to ring the bell of the house but even if they did, they will deny the deed. And yes, there is a chance its really not them, but the mischieve of some boliao people. I had seen before, a house owner after moving away his vehicle from the spot outside his house, will actually place the bin in the same spot then drive off...what i did then was to remove the bin and park there. For house owners that are in the forum here, do you use bins to chop the road outside your house too? And do you have the possessive mindset of the road outside your houses too? seen too many examples at these estates.
  8. DIY Motorcycle Parking Spaces Seen In Woodlands Void Deck, Town Council Investigating source: https://mustsharenews.com/diy-motorcycle-parking-spaces/ DIY Motorcycle Parking Spaces Allegedly Created By Biker Group Who Also Spray-Paint Rims There Every motorist would be familiar with the agony of not being able to find a carpark space. While most of us would simply wait for a lot to be vacated, or seek alternatives elsewhere, a bunch of motorcyclists apparently decided to DIY their own parking spaces. On Tuesday (25 Aug), a series of pictures were uploaded on the SG Road Vigilante Facebook group, showing the “DIY” demarcated lots in the void deck of an HDB block in Woodlands. Makeshift lots created with masking tape According to the post, the handmade lots were found at the void deck of Block 899A, Woodlands Drive 50. The makeshift lots appear to be marked by pieces of masking tape. 2 motorbikes were seen parked inside these DIY lots, while another was parked outside the perimeter. The space on the left is also labelled with an “A”, while the one on the right has a “H”. It’s uncertain what the letters stand for. Allegedly the work of biking group One might be tempted to think that they were the pranks of children, but apparently, they were the work of a bunch of motorcyclists. The contributor managed to capture a picture of a group gathering at the void deck. They were allegedly decorating the walls and switch room nearby. The contributor also claimed that the riders would spray-paint their rims at the area, and leave behind unsightly marks on the floor. The motorcycles’ exhausts are also extremely loud, and would disturb residents living nearby. Town Council didn’t see any white tapes However, when queried by MS News, the Marsiling-Yew Tee Town Council shared that its officers had visited the location earlier on Tuesday (25 Aug), but did not spot any white tapes on the floor. They will continue to monitor the situation, it said. From a search on Google Maps by MS News, we found out that there’s a multi-storey carpark just next to the block. It’s thus unclear why anyone would want to create DIY parking spaces nearby. Think, not park outside the box While thinking outside the box would be, under most circumstances, something praiseworthy, taking it literally and flouting parking rules blantantly is clearly something that’s not acceptable. Not only is it inconsiderate to residents, it’s also a safety hazard. If a bunch of people are indeed doing so, we hope the relevant authorities would take action ASAP to put a stop to it.
  9. Now this is a good one for debating. Do you think the lady in the Honda Shuttle is wrong, or its just the taxi driver being difficult? As shown on SG Road Vigilante's page, a clip shot by a Premier taxi driver, shows a lady in her Honda Shuttle blocking the drop off/pickup point of Katong Shopping Center on 7th of Aug 2020. The reason she is blocking everyone is that she wanted to reverse into the parallel lot beside the taxi but in order for her to do so, all the cars, including the taxi behind, her has to reverse. Now that can be quite a hassle to everyone... So without seeing the first part of this incident, could it be that the taxi driver was being difficult from the start and could have just reversed for her to go into the lot? Or do you guys reckoned that the Honda driver was just a little bit too self-entitled?
  10. 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.
  11. Hi all Would like seek advice on where can i park cheaply for one whole day near Suntec?
  12. Posted by the people of SG Road Vigilante are photos of some bikes parked along the pavement of Ang Mo Kio Ave 9, near the Yio Chu Kang Sport Complex. The photos, which showed quite a few bikes on the pavement, were taken on the 20th of July and captured the bikes all parked neatly on the side of the pavement. Despite the many available parking lots in the carpark which the bikes were already in, the owners of the bikes were said to have parked it on the pavement instead as they wanted their bikes to be in the shade. A quick glance at the comments saw many netizens flaming and taunting SG Road Vigilante as the bikes parked there actually belonged to police officers who worked at the nearby AMK police HQ. Interestingly, SG Road Vigilante retaliated and filed a complaint with the OneService platform. We hope they update everyone on whether these bike owners will get any form of punishment...
  13. Hi guys, any advise on the above? the nearby serviced apartment is full this mth :(
  14. Bought a brand new car and want to avoid door dings? Or perhaps you're a car enthusiast and want to keep your car away from potential busybodies? You can now create your own private parking space even though you don't live in a private estate! Check out this dude in the video below and how he does this...We wonder what this guy drives that gives him the right to have his own special private parking lot. Whichever car that is going to be parked in that lot at 406 Fernvale Road MSCP better be a nice car... Check out the comments people on SG Road Vigilante have to say! 104247240_2999667930147081_5514356786496781035_n.mp4
  15. 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.
  16. When there is a will, there is always a way. This sure rings very true for this particular HDB parking offender as shown in the video posted by SG Road Vigilante. Dated on the 3rd of June, the video is pretty much self-explanatory. While we don't know what prompted the Toyota Prius driver to do that, sharp eyed viewers would have noticed that all that madness was quite unnecessary as the gantry opened up towards the end of the 48 second video. As usual, the comments on the page weren't exactly constructive.. But this one was pretty funny. Watch what this guy does here! 102516826_186940102600538_4929118169282379776_n.mp4
  17. Someone has spotted this chrome-wrapped Mitsubishi Evolution 9 MR parking at some motorcycle lots and sent it to SG Road Vigilante. The photo, which was taken on 30th of May 2020, obviously shows the Mitsubishi Evo occupying lots intended for motorcycles. You might be wondering why we are sharing this with you as HDB parking offences are not that big a deal as it is a common occurrence. In fact, we reckon most of us should have some form committed parking offences before and simply sort out our mistake by making an appeal for the parking offence. What is interesting however, are the comments on this photo on SGRV's facebook post, there were more netizens praising how cool the Evo looked or how rare the car is instead of the usual slamming and shaming comments. Don't you love our local car community?
  18. This is why we should always park properly. We were alerted to someone's posts on his facebook page, showing a BMW X6 XDrive35i badly parked at Jurong Point Shopping Center. Like what the photos show, the netizen who is presumed to be driving the Toyota Altis that is parked beside, barely had space to squeeze into his lot. The large BMW SUV had kind of edged into the page owner's lot causing him to be quite pissed. By parking badly, and of course no thanks to the Altis driver, the BMW owner will be having lots of difficulty getting into his car. So What do you guys think of this? Is it fair to 'punish' the BMW driver who ill-parked? Or do you think the BMW driver had made an honest mistake as it simply wanted to be further away from the lorry beside it?
  19. My place here just recently changed to automated parking system... previously car owners will paste the season parking on their car... so with this new automated parking system how to tell if you are season parking holder? Thru the IU?

    What did I do wrong when parking?

    Quick background; Have 4 kids - 3rd & 4th were twins so have a largish twin pram. Drive an Audi Q7 and the boot door needs a big space for it to swing open upwards. And also cos of the pram, I tend to park with nose in (at least when I can and definitely at home where I have more control). This way there's space to open the boot and load that big ass pram. Stay in a condo where there's plenty of available parking. Most people have two cars and still there's no complaints on number of spaces available. So choices aplenty for everyone. I'm attaching a rough layout of the parking under my block. I've marked out where I park the car 99% of the time (sometimes someone gets there before me in which case, I just find another spot). As mentioned above, I park nose 1st and within the lines marked out. So this morning, I found a note stuck to my windscreen. Note say that I should have the "courtesy" to move forward when parking if I should come early to give the guy coming behind a chance to park I'm sorry, what the heck does he mean by having a courtesy to move forward. I get that he wants me to move to the bay in front of me so that way, he won't have to go around the lift bay and park his car. But how the heck does he know what my requirements are or why I do what I do? If he had the decency to leave his number, I would have explained. But this anonymous bulls**t note saying I'm not courteous cos I'm inconveniencing him by going around the lift block is uncalled for. Or am I wrong?
  21. Today is Sunday, alot of illegal parking in my area, usually I just closed two eyes, but some are downright inconsiderate, blocking ramp for trolleys/wheelchairs for hours with driver nowhere in sight.. Just realized TP dun catch illegal parking anymore, have reported one super inconsiderate illegal parking online at LTA/Onemotoring.. Please report online for any 'inconsiderate' illegal parking, thanks.. Ranting over..
  22. Hi, anyone knows a good place to park full day at Changi Business Park? Or a good place for season parking?
  23. Hi, Anyone knows the season parking rate around Bugis Junction, preferably those outside CBD like Raffles Hospital, ParkView Square, The Gateway.. Thanks!
  24. What's the most important thing? Stick to the end to find out! It's a good one. Like legit. A video uploaded on SG Road Vigilante has sparked a furious debate online that split netizens evenly on two sides of the coin. The video shows a Mercedes-Benz "stealing" a carpark lot from the cam car driver. Or is it really "stealing"? That is the question. The video, which was uploaded last week has since received over 260,000 views and almost 1000 comments! If you haven't seen the video, here’s the link courtesy of SG Road Vigilante's Facebook page Have you been in this situation before? In the video, cam car is patiently waiting for a carpark lot at IMM carpark for about 10 minutes. A White Mercedes-Benz CLS Class pulls up a couple of cars in front of the cam car. When the driver of the CLS (let's call him Mr CLS) spots a family walking towards the area he's waiting at; he decides to reverse to "claim more ground". Needless to say, once cam car driver notices what Mr CLS is doing, cam car inches forward to get the soon-to-be-vacant lot as he was waiting there for a long time already. Mr CLS gives him no chance to do so and reverses into the now-empty parking lot. This extra guy To make matters even worse, someone steps out of the CLS (supposedly the son of the driver) and walks over to cam car to give justification why the lot belongs to the occupants of the CLS instead of the cam car . He even makes a couple of rude gestures to the cam car once that's done. So whose lot is it? Some people say that the CLS had the right of way Calculative sia this guy and very specific too Some people jumped to the defence of the patient cam car driver The most important thing It doesn’t matter who the lot belonged to but we can all agree that on the most important thing....... This guy, is a complete a**hole Thanks Johnson! Couldn't have said so better myself.
