Driver Turns CCTV Away & Allegedly Removes Gantry Arm In Parklane Mall, Authorities Urged To Intervene

Driver Caught Turning CCTV Away In Parklane Shopping Mall

As motorists, we should adhere to certain rules and regulations when using public facilities. Not doing so will cause us to get in trouble with the law — and earn the ire of netizens.

This was the case when a driver allegedly attempted to avoid parking fees in a carpark at Parklane Mall.

He was seen twisting a CCTV camera away and presumably forcing the gantry open.

Footage of his actions has since gone viral on social media, with many urging authorities to take action.

As such, he is liable for even more charges if authorities were to take action for his offences.

Another netizen suggested that he could have used public transport instead of taking such measures to avoid parking fees.

Indeed, this incident reminds us that in the age of technology, our actions – be they legal or not – can be captured on CCTV.

Hopefully, other netizens will take note of this example and endeavour to abide by the regulations at all times.
