Owner of Harley Davidson motorcycle takes condo to court over parking row
Harley clamped for using car space, but motorcycle space 'too small'
Rather than cruising the streets of Singapore, Mr William Ashlock's 1800cc Harley-Davidson has spent the last three months left locked in a wheel clamp at his condo.
The management council of the Metropolitan Condominium took action after he parked that and another large bike in spots meant for cars.
Mr Ashlock claims the bike parking spaces provided are too narrow, as is a gap between a car space and a pillar that is used to access them. He said he was afraid of damaging his bike and other cars if he parked there.
Now the 58-year-old has put his foot down - and taken the matter to court.
Points of conflict
- Mr William Ashlock, who lives at the Metropolitan Condominium in Alexandra View, wants the council to re-mark or relocate the parking spaces for motorcycles and ensure safe access to them.
- The council is contesting his claims and countered that it was adhering to its by-laws passed at a general meeting last year.
