A Facebook user recently posted about her experience when she parked her car in front of a restaurant on Jalan Telawi, Bangsar on Sunday, 14 October

Ng wrote that she had parked her car in a "public parking space" on Jalan Telawi 3, in front of Ashley's by LivingFood Malaysia.

After running her errands, she came back to a sign stuck on her car that read:

Ng added that the sign was stuck on her windscreen with superglue by an employee of the restaurant

When confronted, Ng said that the employee told her that she was merely following her boss' instructions.

Other staff from the same restaurant then used a solution to remove the superglued sign from her car.

Although no damage was done to the vehicle, Ng said that the whole incident was disruptive as she had her toddler with her that morning.

According to Ng, the parking space had no signs or barriers and was meant to be open to the public

However, the parking bay did have red lines to indicate that it is reserved for business from Mondays to Saturdays.

As of today, 16 October, the owner of the restaurant has apologised for the incident and offered to pay for any damages done

He added that they have also contacted DBKL to get clarification on the operational hours for their parking spot.

Nonetheless, they will leave the spot open to the public on Sundays, public holidays, and after 6pm on weekdays.

According to DBKL, businesses need to adhere to certain hours as reserved parking spots cannot be blocked 24/7

Earlier this year, the council's economic planning and development department director Azmi Abdul Hamid said that reserved spots are only rented to businesses from 7.30am to 6.00pm from Mondays to Saturdays.

"After 6.00pm daily, Sundays, and public holidays, the bays are open to the public," Azmi was previously quoted as saying by Malay Mail Online.

Apart from Azmi's quote, there is a scarcity of official information on DBKL's website on the actual reserved parking hours.

Finding a parking spot in busy areas can be frustrating. Just don't be like these guys:
