“Seriously, bro?”

The woman, quite puzzled, asked him, “Are you serious? Using your body to reserve a parking space? I know you want to go to the MATTA Fair, so do I.” The man just smiled and gave a thumbs-up, admitting he was reserving the spot.

When the woman kept asking if he was serious, the man stopped smiling, saying his car was nearby.

He replied, “Don’t worry, it’s not a big issue,” and didn’t budge from the spot.

In the end, the woman could only respond, “I hope you have good karma. Have a nice day.”

The MATTA Fair took place from March 17th to 19th at the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC).

The video went viral, amassing around 400k views, and many people expressed their embarrassment over the man’s behavior.

The police have warned that aside from law enforcement officers, anyone who blocks others or directs drivers to park in a specific spot on any road or parking space is committing an offense.

Don’t physically “chope” parking spot or else get fined

Many pointed out that such behavior is not only frowned upon but also against the law in Malaysia.

“Reserving” parking spaces like this goes against Section 50(3) of the 1987 Road Traffic Act. Offenders may be fined up to 2,000 MYR or jailed for up to 6 months. If caught again, the fine goes up to 4,000 MYR, and jail time may be up to 12 months.
