Summoned for Head-In Parking?

An online Facebook post shows a car being issued a parking “summon” (Parking Offense Ticket) for parking “HEAD-IN” in a Singapore public carpark lot.

According to the Parking Offense Details, it indicated the offense is “Parking Against Traffic Flow“.

.

The said Parking Offense Ticket also indicated a fine of S$50 to be payable by 19 March 2019.

.

Upon close examination, we discovered the said car was parking slightly out of the designated lot marking, which may cause some form of obstruction to other road users.

.

It seems like the traffic warden had issued a parking ticket with the wrong offense section.

After a quick search in HDB website for a list of Parking Offenses, we found this particular parking rule to be the more appropriate one instead.

.

Under the Parking Place Rules (R2, Cap. 214), the said offense carries a fine of S$50 for motor car.

So it may be a genuine human error afterall…

The said motor car is likely being issued a Parking Offense Ticket due to the way it was parked, which is not within the parking lot space, thereby causing obstruction to others 🙂
