  • Stomper Complains About Illegally Parked Bikes - "If bikes can, why cars cannot?"


    In recent times, with the influx of food and parcel delivery riders, there has been an increasing number of motorcycles and bikes that park on the pavement while going about their daily task.

    Until recently, this has been widely accepted so long as the bikes are not in the way of pedestrians and do not cause too much of a nuisance. Based on what we see on our forums however, more and more of these parking offences are being ticketed by our law enforcement officers for "illegal parking" offences.


    The case for motorcyclists in Singapore has not been helped recently with an article posted to Stomp, contributed by Stomper "Yap", stating that "If motorcycles can park illegally, then why cars cannot?"

    While we think that we should be gracious to our fellow commuters and residents here in Singapore, and practicing give and take should be the Singaporean way, with more car owners sounding out about the illegal parking practices of us bikers, it will be sooner rather than later that the authorities start to take action.

    What do you think? Should motorcycles be allowed to park at designated pavements areas so long as they vacate within a certain timing? Or should us a bikers look for proper parking lots just like the cars?

    Let us know in the comments below!

    "If motorcycles can park illegally, then why cars cannot?"  CAN... who say cannot one??? Anyone can park illegally, it's whether the owner can afford the fine and points.
    1) Size really matters, cars is about 4 times or more bigger than a bike, so more surface obstruction will be taken (Common Sense Right). 
    2) Park near traffic light, turning point or busy traffic. Of course will get curse and swear by other road user and start taking pic or calling enforcement agency to report vehicle causing obstruction and traffic safety issue. (Also Common Sense Right...)

    Only for convenient and benefit one will start to compare a water melon to an apple regardless if it's sensible, logical or what so ever 😅 
    So don't waste time on people with no common sense.

    BTW parking on pavements can meh??? I dont think it's even right for bikes lor, but in CBD area many place no motorcycle lots how huh?
    Just like asking motorcycle don't squeeze in between cars in traffic junction, than when we all stopped behind car, we all cause the traffic to dragon up 🤣
    Respect, Respect and Respect (Road User, Law and Ourself) is all I can say. Haiz........
