Residents of Taman Connaught, Cheras, have complained that the Kuala Lumpur City Hall is inconsistent in clamping illegally-parked vehicles.

Gan Chee Ming said some vehicles that parked illegally were clamped, but some were not.

He said motorists had to wait as long as two to three hours for the workers to remove the clamps.

The city’s parking is managed by Yayasan Wilayah Persekutuan (YWP) on behalf of DBKL since October 2016.

Motorists caught parking illegally are fined RM50 on top of the RM50 fee to remove the clamp.

YWP consultant Datuk Nik Haidi Nik Mohamad said the average number of fines issued in a month is 50,000.

Of the total, he said, the public paid only between five and eight per cent.

“Last year, more than 20,000 vehicles have overdue fines, with over 20 per vehicle.

“Some have more than 100 unpaid fines,” he told Actionline.

He said data showed that  most lamps were released in less than 30 to 60 minutes, one of the shortest in the country.
