Just to be devils advocate, I don't do this, but why shouldn't a guy in a 7 seater car with 7 people in it park in 6 motorcycle bays? What good reason is there othert ahn the fact "it's allocated to motor cycles" it's utilising the same space as motorbikes holding potentially fewer people?

I have seen motorcycles parked in car lots before also.
Motorcycles will be ticketed for parking in car lots... the only place this won't happen is in private lots... HDB, URA, LTA... whack.

There is already not enough motorcycle parking and when a self important turd takes the MC spaces, bikes must park elsewhere... and guess what? Parking anywhere other than the MC spaces yields a ticket.

Besides, I've never seen a 7 seater with 7 people in it parked in the motorcycle spaces... it's usually a turd with a BMW 320i who doesn't want to get it scratched.

I have to agree, the demographic for those in MC spaces are normally self important pricks! I wasn't aware that motorcycles were not allowed to park elsewhere?!?! I won't park my BMW in them any more, unless of course I may get it scratched.

On the other hand, if traffic is blocked, or the flow is impeded, then auch action would be warranted... like people parking on narrow roads forcing traffic into the other lane.
X9200, SE, I fully agree, that's exactly my view. If I block someone, no problem to be reported. But in my case it's around 7-8 AM in an empty side road in Orchard area, nobody is impeded. And exactly this self appointed sheriff's are a thorn in my side. But anyway, I can't change their behaviour, I only can change mine. Will try other parking places in future, let's see if a love letter comes in.

How is it possible for 9 people to squeeze inside a honda fit?
