Majlis Bandaraya Shah Alam (MBSA) ingin memaklumkan bahawa penundaan kenderaan berat yang diletakkan di bahu-bahu jalan telah dilakukan melalui Operasi Bersepadu Menunda Kenderaan Berat. Operasi ini diadakan bertujuan untuk mengesan dan membanteras masalah kenderaan berat seperti lori dan bas yang diletakkan di kawasan awam seperti bahu jalan, kawasan kediaman dan rizab jalan.

1 MARCH: Parking illegally in Shah Alam now comes with expensive consequences

The Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) has announced that it will impose a hefty RM3,500 fine for any vehicle towed for parking illegally at Shah Alam residential areas, The Star Online reported. 

The fine was imposed after MBSA received complaints from residents over nuisance and obstruction caused by heavy vehicles parking haphazardly on road kerbs, dividers, and other open spaces

"Some park at the main junctions of busy roads and cause traffic congestion," Mayor Datuk Ahmad Zaharin Mohd Saad told the English daily. 

He added that these vehicles were often parked overnight and it has become an eyesore for residents. 

The council has hired loaders and sought the services of tow trucks to remove these illegally parked vehicles

Apart from the fine, Ahmad Zaharin said owners of the vehicle will have to fork out a RM50 storage fee for each day the vehicle is not collected from the depot.

Abandoned vehicles are also a growing concern for the folks in Shah Alam. The Star Online spoke to a number of residents who said that there were more than 50 of such vehicles dumped at various spots all over residential areas in Shah Alam.

Residents voiced out their concerns by saying that these vehicles have become a potential breeding ground for pests like mosquitoes and rats, which could pose a potential health hazard for everyone.
