    This article was first published on Mothership.sg

    A motorcyclist has been told to park his bike somewhere else in a public car park in Pasir Ris as the lot he was occupying was another motorcyclist's personal favourite lot.

    This privatisation of public property incident was shared on Facebook on Oct. 11.

    The public multi-storey car park is located at Block 757A Pasir Ris Street 71.

    Note stuck on motorcycle
    One of the photos put up showed a note left behind on a motorcycle to inform the rider that the lot and the ones beside it were personal favourite lots utilised by "permanent owners".

    The note, which was left on a motorcycle with a P-plate and assumed to be new to the area, read:

    Hello,

    Looks like you are new here. I did not see your motorbike before... Can you kindly parked at other motorcycle parking lot.

    As most of the parking lots at this level is occupied by permanent owners. When you started to park here we don’t have a parking lot to park.

    Thanks for your understanding.

     

    This suggested that the space in the public car park has been reserved by other motorcyclists who are believed to be season parking holders and residents in the estate.

    No other information was provided on the note to justify the claiming of ownership of a public space.

    It is understood that vehicle owners are entitled to park at any available lot in a public car park, as long as it is available.

    Area decorated with stickers
    However, another photo showed the area around the lots have been personalised with a clock and stickers, suggesting long-time users have transformed the space into their own by customising it.

    Responses
    Responses to the post have been sarcastic and biting, with multiple suggestions of reporting the antics of the long-time users of the lots to the authorities for defacement of public property.

    One commenter suggested jokingly that the long-time users of the lots should spray paint their vehicle licence plate numbers on the ground to demarcate permanently and show their resolve that the lots are off-limits to others.

    Others said such sense of entitlement was probably cultivated over a long period of time, with no other motorist stepping in to insist that public property usage is open to all on a first-come first-serve basis.

    Particularly grating was the claim that there was no other parking lot to park at because the P-plate motorcycle had occupied one lot in a multi-storey car park.

    What do you think? Is the biker correct in not allowing others to park in his "private" parking spot? Or should we practice graciousness and live and let live. Let us know in the comments section below!

    1) New biker dunno ma.. Live and let live.. 

    2) Who doesn't have a preferred lot? If dun have, just park another one closest la.. haha.. If insisted to have your very own lot, park your 2nd or 3rd bike on that lot lor.. (mine is alot worst My preferred lot has 5 lot ~ 10 lots. Usually 2-4 bikes park.. suddenly all 10 lots occupied.. that's when i guess people will get piss off.. Have to park another place.. or in another angle that you are not used to.

    something  I don't quite understand ... usually resident owners pay for seasons parking. so the parking lots are those red ones. but the lot in the photo is white. so does it mean the "Permanent owner" is a resident but nv buy seasons parking ?

    then "don't  have a parking lot to park" means all the red and the white slots fully occupied ?

     

    but clock on the wall ...  omg 🤣

    1) red ones are for season parking..

    2) White = I believe their carpark doesn't have red lots.. in fact alot of places doesn't have red lots until residents complain not enough lots. I complained for 2 years before the motorcycle park lots are painted in red. :(

    I guess this phrase "don't have a parking lot to park" = that floor doesn't have.. BUT BUT.. this doesn't means you can leave a note to ask people to park else where la.. honestly.. my preferred lots dun have.. I also LL move to other lots/floor.. haha..

    Most likely DIY things there lor.. but he lack of sofa and cupboard like other places.. hahaha..

    Season parking can park both red and white slots. If all red runs out, park at white is fine too.

    Usually ppl have preferences over certain slots, but it's too extreme to leave a note to tell ppl to move off. Shows ppl how "self-entitled" some riders can get over time.

    Typical palm face scenario...

    Don't think choping of lots is nice la. But what really grinds my gear is at my carpark which I paid season parking to park in the red lots always occupied by those people parking temporarily (those who don't live here), like only come here to meet friends or what then when I reach home I have to park some 200m away.

      Hi all!
       
      I'm just checking with anyone here, is there any motorbike parking spaces @ Changi Business Park? I'm starting my new job there tomorrow and hopefully anyone here works around the area and can help give some lobangs where to park.
       
      Thank you!

      Just wanted to start a small discussion about the No.4 uniforms all of us are familiar with.
      The SAF issued No.4 uniforms have patented camouflage capabilities to help our national servicemen hide their presence in the different environments they operate in.
      These capabilities break up a person's profile when the enemy looks at them from afar.
      With the introduction of the new uniforms over the last few years, these capabilities are enhanced.
       
      When a rider decides to wear their full No.4 uniform without a jacket to break up the camouflage of the uniform,
      Wouldn't it decrease their visibility to other motorists?
      A similar comparison to this effect might be riding at night without their headlights on.
      This is especially true during the peak hours where our servicemen are usually on the roads(dawn and dusk)
      when it has been scientifically proven that a person's perception is at their lowest due to the changing light conditions.
       
      Due to the nature of riding, motorcyclists are more physically exposed when an accident occurs.
      There may be times that this visibility is the determining factor to prevent an accident.
      Maybe there needs to be some sort of guidance or attention towards the use of No.4 uniforms for riders.
