In a Facebook group, a female driver shared her experience when she went parking in a shopping mall. As she’s parking her car, another woman suddenly stands in the spot using a baby stroller to reserve it for her husband.
The female driver who took this 28-second video went down her car to question the lady who was standing in the middle of the spot with a stroller.
She replied while standing beside the stroller saying, “But I was here first.”
The post owner asked with frustration, “I want to ask you, is this (the pram) a car?”
‘Car needs to arrive first’
Then they exchange words for claiming their rights for the spot.
“The car needs to arrive first,” the woman driver claimed.
Even then, the woman with the stroller seemed unfazed and continued claiming the spot.
Then, the driver says exasperatedly, “Okay. Let’s talk about morals.” The lady lost words to reply for the confrontation.
She also shared another short 3 seconds video, indicating that the lady’s husband had reached at the spot and was waiting in the car.
The action of the wife is unlawful, according to Road Transport Act 1987, No. 50(3). “If any person, otherwise than with lawful authority, remains on any road or at any parking place for the purpose of importuning any other person in respect of the watching or cleaning of a motor vehicle, or for the purpose of directing any driver of a motor vehicle in respect of parking on such road or at such place, he shall be guilty of an offence.”
Netizens discussed about the incident
The post has garnered more than 2,900 comments for the past 5 days, as netizens expressed different opinion about the incident.
Some of the netizens chastised about the post owner, saying that she shouldn’t reveal the lady face in the video as it is immoral too.
Others slammed the husband saying that, “I advise to park jockey, don’t bring your baby to grab the parking so exhaustingly. This type of husband left his wife bring baby to grab parking is not a good guy.”
While some of the netizens commented that she should just give up the parking spot and find another one.
“(I’ve) Encountered incidents like these, mostly will just scold inwardly, smile in the car, and find again for another parking spot.”
