In a post about a week ago, I recounted the parking summon I got, and the steps to take to submit an appeal (The appeal procedure is dependent on whose jurisdiction the carpark is under).
It was a success. HDB considered the appeal, and “decided to exercise flexibility and waive the above notice.” Thank God, and thanks to the officer for being so nice and forgiving. 🙂 Shall remind myself to display coupons the next time.
As promised, here is my appeal note to HDB (edited to remove personally identifiable information).
I understand and acknowledge the consequences for the infringement of the law with regards to parking without displaying a coupon. However, there is no malicious intention, on my part, to manipulate or to cheat the system.
Apart from this one-off incident, I have played an active role in consciously fulfilling all obligations of the law of Singapore’s roads all these years. Thus, out of your goodwill, I would be thankful if this fine for this one-off error of failing to display a parking coupon can be waived off.
