Fined for nothing!
I was on my way home and discovered this piece of paper resting under my bike seat.
I’m furious! The reporting officer wrote this: “No p/coupon displayed.”
Hello? Are you sure? Did you even check?
I’m not going to pay for this, so I sent an email to HDB.
Here are its contents:
To the person in-charge,
I am writing with regards to my parking offence notice number G5528016M which I have been issued at Carpark CK25 on 24/01/2007 8:49pm.
I work at Choa Chu Kang Lot 1 and I park my vehicle at the above-mentioned carpark regularly. I was going home this evening and I noticed that a summon was stuck under my seat.
It is written on the summon that “No p/coupon displayed.”
I would like to appeal against this case because I believe that the reporting officer did not perform a thorough check on my vehicle. I have clearly and very prominently stuck the parking coupon inside my IU/ERP unit. I would like to bring to your attention that for bikes, we do not have dashboards like cars, so it is quite difficult to find a place where we can display our parking coupons without it getting damaged by the rain, or blown away by the wind.
In this case, I have already displayed my parking coupon inside of my IU/ERP unit. This, your reporting officer has failed to notice.
Moreover, at 8.49pm, the sky is already dark and Carpark CK25 is an open-air carpark with little lamp-posts. Hence, it may be one of the contributing factors which may have led to the mistake which the reporting officer has made.
Kindly look into the matter and I look forward to your favourable reply.
Lets wait and see what they have to say.
Well, on the other hand, just won a Canon Ixus I Zoom, and daddy intends to sell it off for $400.
Oh ya.. I also forgot to mention about this really funny thing that happened at work today. Daniel was attending to one of those really noisy aunties and that aunty was conversing in Cantonese. Daniel can’t understand Cantonese.. So he replied her like that (Just watch the first 14 seconds of the clip).
The aunty suddenly got the blur look on her face and I cannot stop laughing.
