YOURSAY | ‘Do you really expect us to believe that the average Joe on the road is going to agree to a price hike?’
Public backs hike in parking rate, says mayor
GE14Now!: Do you really expect us to believe that the average Joe on the road is going to agree to a price hike? Just like we all supposedly supported the Goods and Services Tax (GST), right?
We have a lot of Hillary Clintons in this country too – all lying through their teeth and expecting us to buy into their lies wholesale.
Kuala Lumpur mayor Mhd Amin Nordin Abdul Aziz, we have news for you – the average Joe’s level of intelligence has risen and we can smell a lie when one is offered. Your nose appears to be lengthening as well, Mr Mayor.
Southpaw: Of course, in this country, we rakyat only want things that are expensive and wish to pay more instead of less, for if we pay less in our purchases we will be hauled up to court.
Anonymous 1595491436431853: Yes, many people are happy and support the parking fee hike. The mayor probably refers to those who have benefited from the hike, as it’s more income for them.
And only a retarded brain thinks that double parking can be solved by a parking rate hike. If he enforces the law well, even if there was free parking there would be no double parking issue.
Chipmunk: Who in their right mind would agree with a parking fee hike unless he owns and manages the parking lot? Can you show the rakyat your statistics that show that the public agrees to this hike?
Please do not insult our intelligence unless you too have a share in this matter (remember the recent Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) arrests of your staff)?
Mosquitobrain: Mr Mayor, do not pass the buck to the taxpayers. Remove all dead wood and the corrupt from your council. And support your claims with facts and figures.
Anonymous_3f6d: What bull, Mr Mayor – we can also say we have conducted a survey and all were against this parking fee hike. Talk is cheap and so are lies.
Anonymous #13114320: I don’t know whom you are trying to fool – probably yourself. Show us where and how many residents were surveyed. I just went to Bangsar yesterday and the problem was not rates, but you have a serious lack of parking space. Yet you claim things have improved.
Tpn: Mayor, just go and ask people working in Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI) and Bangsar and you will get a 100 percent disapproval.
Mamak Mee: Since when did the chairmen of a few associations in Bangsar and Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI) become the voice of KL residents? How ridiculous.
Falcon: Seriously? Bangsar and Taman Tun Dr Ismail are the barometers for the DBKL parking fee hike? I cannot understand why the nation’s appointed top civil servants are obsessed with exposing their stupidity for the world at large to see.
Korkor: Over to you Bangsar and Taman Tun Dr Ismail residents. You guys represent the whole of Kuala Lumpur, huh? Well you don’t represent us in other parts of KL, and Mr Mayor, please don’t try to hoodwink us.
Public backs hike in parking rate, says mayor

The public supports the new parking rate in Kuala Lumpur based on the feedback obtained, according to mayor Mhd Amin Nordin Abdul Aziz.
He said the feedback was from residents in Bangsar and Taman Tun Dr Ismail.
“Many people support the increase in the parking rate, but the press does not support. I don’t know about the other side (opposition).
“When there is an increase in parking lots, and we control them, the people have ample space to park, especially in Bangsar.”
More people will have the chance to park, he argued, instead of the spots being hogged when the rates were lower.
“In the past, there was double parking, but now there is space to park. The residents in Bangsar and TTDI are happy,” he told reporters, after the march past in conjunction with DBKL’s 47th Enforcers’ Day.
Mhd Amin was responding to the opposition submitting a protest memorandum to DBKL over the hike, which was deemed as too steep.
The memorandum, along with a petition with 11,000 signatures from city dwellers, asked for a review of the hike in fees and the city parking system in general.
Amongst others, the memorandum detailed complaints by the public that the parking machines only accepted coins for hourly rates and motorists could not pay for other time periods.
Commenting further, Amin said that contrary to what the opposition was accusing, the new parking system was not a funding sinkhole, but was poised to generate hundreds of thousands of ringgit in revenue.
“The opposition said that we wasted money on the new parking system, in truth we did not even pay a single sen, but will get about RM700,000 to RM1 million in revenue with the new system,” he said.
Meanwhile Deputy Federal Territories Minister Loga Bala Mohan said that the rakyat had accepted this after hearing the explanation from the ministry.
“The new parking rates will be retained. So of course, they (the opposition) want to look busy. Though if they want to submit the memorandum, they are free to do so,” he said.
