I’m sure that we’ve been angered, at the very least once, by people who like to chup public parking lots using a cone or chair. I’m irritated just thinking about it!

Even though such activity is legal for paid parking spots, people still can’t randomly “book” parking spots using a cone because they can risk being fined.

According to the Road Transport Department Malaysia (Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan Malaysia, JPJ), people who chup parking spots using a chair, cone, motorcycle, flower pots and etc can be penalised under Section 50(3) Road Transport Act 1987.

Based on a post on Facebook, JPJ wrote that anyone without authority cannot hog a parking spot with a cone (or anything similar to it). This includes humans too! 

This law applies to all public and private properties, which include shopping malls. This means those who chup parking spots that they didn’t pay for in apartments is illegal.

Therefore, the offender can face two types of penalties based on the number of offences under Section 119, and they are mentioned below:

  • First offence: A fine up to RM2,000 or imprisonment for not more than six months. 
  • Second offence (and thereafter): Jail sentence for not more than 12 months or a fine up to RM4,000

Hence, if you come across people who illegally chup parking lots, you can report the incident via email at [email protected] or Whatsapp by clicking this link.

Do keep in mind that if you would like a lodge a complaint about someone who illegally chup parking spots, you need to provide some information like the list below:

  • Your IC number 
  • Location of incident 
  • Date of incident 
  • Time of incident 
  • Vehicle’s number plate

Take note, guys! 

On that note, you can follow JPJ’s Facebook to learn more about this matter and to be updated with the latest information regarding road law and safety.
