Over-protective parking guards sued by rider

Over-protective parking guards sued by rider

A man who went clubbing with friends in the capital’s Por Sen Chey district and couldn’t find his moto parking ticket in the early hours of yesterday morning found the guards at the parking lot to be of no help, as they informed him he could only collect his moto when it was the last one standing.

After some searching, the late-night reveller discovered the ticket in his pocket.

But when he produced it, the guard forbade him from driving his moto that night, telling him he would have to wait until tomorrow.

The man filed a complaint and a settlement has not yet been reached.
