Vehicle Obstructing Garbage Truck
This pickup was parked near the Blk.383/384 Tampines St.32 rubbish chute area on the Double Yellow Lines. It was obstructing the garbage truck movement in performing his duty. Though there is a painted sign on the rubbish chute area "No Parking, Fine $1000", but frankly who will enforce it especially in the day time.
I've seen this so often especially during weekends where inconsiderate drivers parked their vehicles there indiscriminately obstructing the garbage truck. I pity the garbage truck driver as he has a tight schedule to follow and if every block or estate he visits, he meets with such obstruction, then his schedule will be delayed.
If the public bus can be equipped with cameras to deter other drivers from going into the bus lanes, maybe the garbage truck should also be equipped with such cameras too.
