I understand the need to crackdown on illegal parking in Petaling Jaya, but I also believe enforcement officer should have some brains!

I rushed out of office to go to the Digital Mall in Section 14, Petaling Jaya to get a component for my computer.

It took me about 30 minutes to get a parking lot as that area is forever crowded.

After getting a spot, I dashed into the mall so I can get out I want, have a quick lunch and get back to my office by 2pm.

I got what I needed, gobbled down my food and rushed back to my car.

And guess what, someone had double parked in front of my car and the Petaling Jaya Municipal Council officers had clamped his car.

Fine, the person had double-parked, but what about the three cars he was blocking, including mine?

The owner of the car soon arrived and he then tried calling the council to get the clamp removed.

By then, it was already 1.45pm and I only had about 15 minutes to get back to my office in Jalan 222.

No choice left, I got a cab and got back to my office 15 minutes late!!

This was no fault of mine, but due to some senseless people.

How can these enforcement officers do something so dumb? Fine, if you want to clamp the car, make sure you are nearby to release the clamp when the person concerned calls you.

I heard from the shop owners later when I went to get my car, that the guy only had his clamp released about 2.45pm - I'm sure after the council officers enjoyed their lunch.

This is ridiculous and I urge MPPJ that while you guys try to uphold the law, do it with some common sense!
