Vehicles were parked illegally on the either side of the road while there were plenty parking zones available.

Public transportation companies in our country don’t just offer transport but also parking zones for commuters to park their vehicles. However, there are some cases in which Malaysians do not utilise the services provided to its full capacity.
As an example of this, recently a netizen known as @slainthayer posted a picture of the Cyberjaya MRT station where it was shown how the parking area provided by the station was quite empty.
However, it can be observed that cars are parked by the sides of the road leading to the station.
This may not look like it may cause a lot of trouble, but later another video was shared by @Twt_Cyberjaya where the MRT buses found it hard to manoeuvre along the same road with the cars parked on both sides.
This causes what is called the domino effect, where the buses might be late on their journey leading to passengers being late.
The netizen @slainthayer also shared how the MRT prepared ample parking spaces for motorists and it only costs them RM4 a day.
We literally bend over backwards to appease the motorist by doubling the amount of parking for MRT2 vs MRT1. The LRTs have even fewer parking at less than 2000 total.https://t.co/gjpJ31zr67 pic.twitter.com/czu8DY7NvY— Slainthayer (@slainthayer) April 12, 2023
People are however still sceptical about the parking. One netizen even posted a video on how he failed to find parking at the MRT Cyberjaya Utara station.
While some netizens were sceptical about the issue, many said proper action should be taken on the vehicles that are parked illegally.

It’s time to play cruel. Yg mana parking luar tu, tow semua gi kumpul kat satu tempat. Nanti suruh owner-owner tu datang kutip. Pau je lah sorang RM100. Easy money.— Kimi (@hyoudou_issei07) April 14, 2023
One of the netizens pointed out that the parking spaces are still limited, but if there were more spaces provided, he would be happy to pay the parking fees.
Agreed with this but cyberjaya car park has a limited amount of parking space and the nearest is skypark. So again proper planning needs to be done and i’ll be happy to pay rm4 a day provided it has sufficient parking space.— i’m believer (@devilprinc3) April 12, 2023
Parking issues are a never-ending debate in our country. Nevertheless, it is the responsibility of the people to utilise the services provided efficiently and the government should also find ways to improve these facilities in a way that it can accommodate the needs of many.
