A Likas driver has voiced his concern about the traffic hazards posed by buses parked along a section of Jalan Tuaran.

The individual claimed that the buses obstructed the view of motorists exiting from a junction near a shopping centre, located off the road.

He provided Hotline with the location of the vehicles which were forwarded to City Hall.

A spokesman for the agency said its staff would have to verify the claims.

“We will have to determine if there are spaces demarcated as parking bays along the stretch,” he said.

“If there are none, then the bus can be deemed to have been illegally parked here.”

Under City Hall’s By Law on the Provision of Parking Spaces and Stands and Licencing of Parking Places, those caught for illegal parking risk having to settle a RM 100 fine.

Repeat offenders risk being taken to court where they could be fined up to RM 5,000.

CASEY of Likas claimed that the buses were parked along the stretch daily.

He said drivers trying to get onto Jalan Tuaran from the shopping centre often found it difficult to see the oncoming traffic.

“This creates a jam on the road near the commercial centre especially during the peak hours after work,” he said.

Casey claimed that two vehicles almost collided with each other at the junction on a recent Tuesday morning.

“Thankfully, the driver trying to leave the junction managed to brake in time.” 

“The problem caused by the buses parked along the stretch has been going on for a long time. 

“I cannot understand how the local authorities could be turning a blind eye to these activities.” (SS)
