I recently drove into a building's carpark at 5.50pm. I was there for 20 minutes and was charged $5.
The first-hour charge was $2.50, and I assume the other $2.50 was from the per entry charge after 6pm.
This method of calculating parking fees seems to be adopted by all carpark operators islandwide.
By right, only $2.50 for the first hour is payable, as I parked for just 20 minutes. Additional charges should apply only after the first hour.
I hopethe Urban Redevelopment Authority will look into this unethical way of charging.
