KUALA LUMPUR – Never pay a parking tout, advised Kuala Lumpur Mayor Datuk Seri Mhd Amin Nordin Abd Aziz.
Instead, he said, motorists should immediately lodged a report with the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) or the police should they be approached by parking touts who forced payment from them.
“Do not give them a single sen,” he said when asked on the activities of parking touts, some of them becoming bolder, in some areas in the city.
DBKL enforcement director, Mustafa Mohd Nor said 74 series of “Ops Jaga” against parking touts were conducted last year.
A total of 136 parking touts were detained last year, from 231 in 2014, he added.
The parking touts were brought to the DBKL Court and those found guilty were imposed compound of between RM200 and RM2,000.
