Back to the suggestion of putting speed bump in the multi-storey car park, I think there is really a need to have that especially going up slope and down slope. I saw a lady driver speeding ~40km/hr going up to slope to level C parking with no sign of breaking. Until she making the turning at level C she suddenly break hardly because of another car trying to reverse out from the parking slot next to the turning. Imagine if she didn’t release the car reversing or someone walking down the slope, what is the damage?
I’m not sure whether she rushing for time or not, but it’s dangerous.
Sometime you also find drivers tend to speed up when going down slope to level A parking, not sure whether they want to experience ‘roller-coaster’ way of driving... :)
But, obviously putting speed bump is not an effective solution to tackle small group of drivers who like performing ‘drifting’ when going up or down slope of multilevel parking. Indeed it may create in convenience to those who always obeying the rule... maybe more complain will raise... But, let see what the best solution to overcome this issue.
If you happen driving to Queensbay-Mall parking you may see speed bump at the end of the slope that prevent people speeding (if not mistaken), not sure whether it will benefit to PG.
On another thought, is our management intending to create pedestrian walking path at the ‘Dato Kong’ side to give way for residents to walk from parking lot back to building A or B with minimum risk of knocking by fast car? Maybe opening the gate at the play-ground and make a pedestrian walking path connected to the motorbike parking next to block A.
