Double parking practice needs to go

As a local, I am deeply shocked by some fellow Bruneians who exhibit irresponsible behaviours bordering on criminal.

Take for example, school pick-up times. Certain schools have gone the extra mile by allocating areas for parents to leave their cars.

Sure, these parking lots are often not situated right next to the school premises; the parents would have to take a two-minute walk.

Instead, these individuals would double park by the side of the main road, obstructing students’ and motorists’ view, posing danger to all. Such a blatant disregard for safety precautions is not just irresponsible, it is downright illegal.

I hope the authorities would increase their surveillance during pick-up times to ensure this practice is stamped out before something tragic happens.
