亚庇泊车费应该降低 // KK Car Park should reduce rates




The Kota Kinabalu car park is finally and placed directly under the control of the DBKK now, but the question remains that during the past 10 years of contract with the private company for undertaking the collection of parking fees in Kota kinabalu, how much money has been collected and how much money has been paid into the coffer of DBKK?


亚庇市的泊车终于由亚庇市政厅直接管理,但是市民都想知道,亚庇市政厅与之前的私人公司代收泊车费的合约,在过去的10年以来到底收取了多少泊车费? 此外他们到底有支付多少钱给亚庇市政厅呢?


泊车用户想知道对该项问题,当局为何总是保持沉默,如今应该是公开让广大市民了解实况。 支付泊车费实际上是人民的献金以帮补开销,因此该项公帐必须要让大家知道。

民众要求亚庇国会议员邱庆洲向亚庇市政厅反映,并必须要公布历年以来所收取的泊车费。 邱氏认同民众的建议,他也​​希望亚庇市政厅能够公布M/S Wasasan Ithiss S/B这十年来所收取的泊车费详细资料,此外该合约是于201252日满期。

由于之前该公司和亚庇市政厅收取昂贵泊车费,现在民众要求亚庇市政厅减低至少40%的泊车费,也为了削减高昂的生活费。 一般普通人要花费每个月八十令吉的泊车费是项大负担。 低收入的民众已多次提出该要求,但是没有任何回应。 还有市政厅应该要考虑将迟还泊车费的罚款数额减半。 现在是时候亚庇市政厅和州政府必须倾听人民的心声。

亚庇市许多的泊车位应该让民众免费使用,如打里卜,孟加达,下南南和哥隆邦等地方都不应征收泊车费。没有塞车的地方和小镇应该豁免支付泊车费。 亚庇市政厅用控制交通堵塞和长时间霸占泊车位为理由,而施加昂贵的泊车费。 邱氏说,其实是有很多方法可以用来解决该些问题。例如在车辆拥挤的地区建设更多的高层停车场。 实际上在古晋和其他许多城市都已经有多座高层停车场。

是时候亚庇市政厅要考虑人民的要求建设高层停车场。 这是为了将来泊车的问题有所打算,否则将来民众会没有地方泊车。 要知道每年的车辆增加量大约有10万辆,如果当局没有妥善的策划,交通问题将会越来越糟糕。


KK Car Park should reduce rates

The Kota Kinabalu car park is finally and placed directly under the control of the DBKK now, but the question remains that during the past 10 years of contract with the private company for undertaking the collection of parking fees in Kota kinabalu, how much money has been collected and how much money has been paid into the coffer of DBKK?

The car park users query that why there is a total silent over the issue and this should be enclosed to the general public. The money paid for the car park usage is actually the people’s contribution and therefore an account on the receipt must be published.

The public has requested the KK MP Hiew King Cheu to seek clarification from the DBKK and to have the figures publish. Hiew on one hand do agree with the people and he hope the DBKK can publish the whole detail of the car parking fees for the whole ten years since the DBKK had signed the contract to the company M/S Wasasan Ithisas s/b who had concluded its contract recently on the 2nd of May 2012.

On the high rates charged previously by the company and DBKK, the people also asked DBKK to reduce the rates by at least 40%. This is inline with the measure to cut the high cost of living and expenditures. A clerk can not afford to spend up to RM80 on parking fees monthly. The average income group has voiced out many times before and there is very little respond, and now it is time that DBKK and the government should listen to the people.

The car parks in many areas in KK should remain as free to the use of the people. There should not be imposed with parking fees in places like Telipok, Mengattal, Inanam and Kolombong area. The small area in town where there is no traffic jam and having little business activities should also be exempted to pay parking fees. DBKK has used the reasoning to impose expensive parking fees by saying that they want to control the traffic jam and long hours parking, Hiew said that there are many other ways that they can adopt to solve the problems. This can be done by building more multi-storey car parks in congested areas. In Kuching and many other cities they have solved these problems. In Kuching there are as many as three independent multi-storey car parks for the car to park in.

It is high time that DBKK should consider the peoples’ request to bring to the City additional car parking facilities like the independent Multi-storey car parks. This is for the future planning in the city, or else we will be jammed with no parking in the very near future. The cars coming on the road is about 10 thousand or more yearly.
