For some reason, the signboard saying “Strictly no waiting” means nothing to certain Malaysians, as we can still see some of them waiting at the pick-up point or even by the roadside. This situation often happens outside shopping malls and airports, and traffic tends to always be backed up due to their selfish behaviour.

So, to put an end to this habit, Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MBHD) has decided to put a limit of two minutes on the waiting time at the pick-up zone. Those who need to wait longer can proceed to the free parking facility near the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and KLIA2 terminals.

These free parking spots are located just beside the Long Term Car Park (LTCP). Alternatively, drivers can enjoy 30 minutes free parking at the LTCP.

Following this implementation, drivers no longer have to wait by the roadside near the Petronas fuel station before going to the terminals upon the passengers’ arrival.

So, what happens if you wait for more than 30 minutes? 

“Even if the waiting time exceeds more than half-an-hour at LTCP, a reasonable parking charge of RM2.50 per hour will be imposed,” MBHD managing director, Datuk Badlisham said during a parade.

To ensure the drivers toe the new rules, Selangor police chief said that the police will no longer compromise with motorists who park their cars by the roadside, since there is now the parking facility provided for them.

To prove just how serious they are in enforcing this new rule, the police will mobilise tow trucks to remove driver-less cars that are parked alongside the road en-route to the airports.

Also, stubborn drivers who refuse to wait at the parking facility will have their number plates recorded by CCTVs and they’ll be fined up to RM300!

So guys, leave this habit in 2017 or prepare to pay the fine!
