  1. 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.

  2. 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. Parking Warden Allegedly Issues Summons For Illegally Park Funeral Vehicles Singapore might be a lawful nation, but there are times when exceptions are granted for parking summons during events such as funerals or religion processions. On Tuesday (5 Jan), a Facebook user complained about how a Certis parking warden was not being sensitive and compassionate when he allegedly issued summons to drivers attending a Jurong funeral. You can read the post in full here. In response to MS News queries, Certis clarified that no issued were summoned for the illegally-parked vehicles. Certis parking warden issues summon for funeral vehicles According to the post, the Certis enforcement officer had issued summons for funeral vehicles parked near the wake. This apparently happened despite the deceased’s family explaining that the undertakers had to park there to do their job. The warden later took pictures of the funeral vehicles. Officer allegedly issues summons for other vehicles too Vehicles belonging to other funeral attendees were also not spared. Despite the owners being in their respective cars, they were allegedly handed parking tickets. The user also claims that they were “not obstructing traffic in any way”. Though the netizen understands that the warden was doing his job, he felt that the officer could’ve been more compassionate and understanding, especially in this situation when a grieving family is involved. Security company says no summons were issued Responding to MS News queries, a Certis spokesperson said that the incident happened along Senja Road on Sunday (4 Jan). Contrary to the claims made in the post, the security company clarified that no parking summons were issued for the illegally-parked vehicles. The cars were later “removed” by the respective owners. Parking wardens have a difficult job on hand Maintaining the law yet being compassionate when it comes to such sensitive situations is a difficult task that our parking wardens must work with. We hope the issue in question will be settled amicably between all parties involved. source: https://mustsharenews.com/parking-warden-funeral-summons/
  6. 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 !
  7. Hi there, I bought a Honda Vezel couple of months ago and I am very happy with the car. I'm pretty comfortable with driving but my wife is still getting used to it. We find the parking spot in our building a bit tight and the rear parking camera only helps to a certain extent. Parallel parking especially during rush hour can be quite cumbersome so we thought a front camera would be helpful. For experienced drivers, this might not make sense, but for newer drivers it can add a ton of peace of mind (I think). My accessories dealer suggested a 360-degree surround camera to install in the car. I couldn't find any reputed brands online but wondering if any of you have experience with these? Do they actually work effectively? I've seen ATOTO, FSK, Weivision and CarThree but they seem to have mixed reviews. I know that the camera won't be as nice as a Honda factory installed one, but I am keen to explore. See this Youtube video: Examples Of Cars With 360-Degree Camera Systems Audi: Top view camera system with Virtual 360 View BMW: Surround View With 3D View Chevrolet: Surround Vision Ford: 360-Degree Camera Hyundai: Surround View Monitor Infiniti: Around View Monitor Kia: Surround View Monitor Land Rover: 360-Degree Parking Aid; ClearView Mazda: 360-Degree View Monitor Mercedes-Benz: Surround View System Nissan: Around View Monitor Toyota: Bird's Eye View Camera Volkswagen: Overhead View Camera (Area View) Volvo: 360-Degree Surround View
  8. 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.
  9. It must have been quite humiliating for this particular Volkswagen Passat. Spotted on ROAD.sg's facebook page over the weekend are a few photos of a BlueSG car that needed to be returned but the driver found himself blocked out of the BlueSG parking lot by an irresponsible VW Passat. We guess the driver of the BlueSG vehicle must have been in a rush and realising that he had no other choice, decided to leave his BlueSG car in front the Passat before proceeding to charge his car. While netizens are all in support of the blueSG driver serving justice to the Passat owner, we feel that two wrongs won't make one right. What would you have done? Tell us in the comments below!
  10. Have you encountered trouble at carpark entries and realised that you needed to have another go with the IU scanner but the car behind is so close that you cant even reverse a tiny bit? We sure have and know how troublesome it is get the car behind to reverse so that you can re do the IU scan. Often, the driver behind refuses to bulge leaving you in an awkward position and frustrated at the driver behind you. Something like this happened on 22nd of October 2020 at Crawford Court between a Prius Trans-Cab and an unknown camera car. However, egos and tempers got the best of them and things turned out ugly. Who was in the wrong? Watch the video as posted by SG Road Vigilante and let us know in the comments below!

  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. 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!

  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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?
  20. 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.
  21. Hi all Would like seek advice on where can i park cheaply for one whole day near Suntec?
  22. 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...
  23. Hi guys, any advise on the above? the nearby serviced apartment is full this mth :(
