Law & Order @ The Garden Slug

A Telok Kurau resident named “Law” has written to us a couple dozen times throughout the past year, warning us and our dear customers to be mindful of traffic rules and fire safety.

“Law” tries to get their message across by posting comments on many of our blog posts. To a large number of bloggers and readers alike, this would be considered spamming.

We thought we’d let “Law” have their own blog post, once and for all, to get their message out to the “public”, as they have undoubtedly put in countless hours in front of the computer working on the behalf of all the other kind and wonderful residents of Telok Kurau.

We reproduce Law’s message here in full.

Should any of our dear readers and/or diners like to exchange helpful traffic tips with “Law”, they can be contacted at the following e-mail addresses:

Dear folks,

My apologies for any inconvenience caused.

If you are driving to the Garden Slug at Telok Kurau for a meal, be mindful of parking along the roads in the residential area. Many cars have been found booked by the traffic police. The residents actively report all traffic situation to the relevant authority (i.e. traffic police and neigbourhood police). You may be lucky, once or twice, but don’t count on your luck too much.

The issue here is fire safety. Think of a building and why common corridors must be cleared for emergency. Indeed, long before this restaurant appeared, the fire authority have the foresight to install fire hydrants at the end of several lanes at Lorong L for fire engine services. Thus these lanes are fire engine access drive way; if a fire were to break out and the fire engine failed to arrive on time at the scene, because of vehicles blocking the road, innocent human lives would be lost.

On these roads where the fire-hydrants are located, there are single and double law enforcement (yellow) lines. Depending on the road situation (e.g. if too many cars lined the road), you may also be booked on single lines after 7 pm and on Sunday.

However, the (cash-card) car-park at Bright centre is really dirt cheap (honest), considering that you can drive all the way to have a meal at the restaurant which could easily cost you tens of dollars. Alternatively, if you feel that paying for parking is unjustified, you could ask the friendly proprietors (Joseph and his colleagues) of the restaurant for a parking refund as part of their Good Business Practice approach..

Have a good time but be mindful of the residents over there.

My apologies for any inconvenience caused.
