Facebook user Muhd Fazuwan shared the video of an LTA officer booking delivery trucks parked along Lorong Mambong in Holland Village. The road is marked with a single yellow zig-zag line. The law specifies that there should be no parking at all times on this side of such roads and on the public footpath adjacent to the roads. Besides a fine, motorists who flout the law are also slapped with demerit points.

The LTA officer tells the user that she is only doing her job and is later seen videoing Fazuwan.

Fazuwan highlighted how there are very few loading bays for delivery drivers to use along the narrow stretch of road for them to do their jobs. And even the existing ones are too small for big trucks.

The user said that the delivery drivers do not flout the no-parking rule for leisure. Pointing out that there are many eateries along the road and that delivery drivers have to serve these outlets every day, he appealed for the authorities to extend a 10 minutes grace for such workers to do their job.

The user’s video also showed a delivery driver walking up a slope on the road to his truck where it was parked. Fazuwan said that the work of delivery drivers is hard, and that the law should not make it even harder.

The Facebook user’s video has now gone viral with about a thousand shares since being posted at about 7.30pm on 19 Jul.
