WE THANK Mr James Koh for his feedback ("Why place postbox at no-parking road?"; Forum Online, Nov 14). He was booked for parking his vehicle illegally at double yellow lines along Jalan Elok.
Under the law, it is an offence to park along the side of the road, except to stop momentarily for pick-up or drop-off purposes.
Our record shows that Mr Koh had stopped his vehicle for several minutes before the notice of parking offence was issued to him. If he had driven off immediately after dropping off his mail at the mailbox, he would not have been booked.
