HDB issues about 740 parking summonses a month

SINGAPORE — The Housing and Development Board (HDB) said it issued an average of 740 summonses each month in the last five years to drivers who park illegally in reserved lots.

These include the lots set aside for disabled drivers, police and Singapore Civil Defence Force vehicles.

HDB said it takes a serious view of such “inconsiderate acts”.

Among those inconvenienced are drivers in the car-sharing scheme because users locate these shared cars at reserved lots, which are sometimes taken by other drivers.

HDB said those who park illegally face a S$50 fine.

Repeat offenders may face a fine of up to S$400.
