Residents act against illegal parking on their property
Owners of eight terraced houses along Jalan Mas Puteh in Clementi put up with illegal parking on their property for years before deciding that they had had enough.
Last November, they put up signs warning trespassers off the property and began clamping the wheels of illegally parked vehicles.
The situation came to a head on Sunday, when an irate motorist posted on citizen journalism portal Stomp that he had been forced to pay $500 to have the clamp on his vehicle removed.
However, the home owners claim that they are well within their rights because the road that runs in front of all eight units is private property.
