Your Say: Ladies ONLY parking – Is it the best idea?

by xin on March 22, 2013

Over the last few months, there has been a rising alert of crimes in shopping mall car park. And at an alarming rate! It scared the hell out of me to think that how dangerous it is to be in our country. We can’t even hang out freely!

Sure, there has been some effort to tighten the security in the shopping malls, but we still can’t say that we are safe for sure. Recently when I went to Gardens (Mid Valley Shopping Mall), I noticed that now they have set up a section for ‘ladies only’ parking.

This ‘ladies only’ parking is meant for lady drivers, and there is a security guard checking upon allowing your car in. It got me thinking, isn’t this same as keeping all fish in one pond and anyone can get an easy catch?

If I were to think like a criminal, this is the place that I want to be at 😉 Sure there are little fences around area but anyone can trespass it easily.  And since the security guards are only at the entry point, there are blind spots in the area where they can easily hide behind any pillar and wait to strike.

Based on my thoughts of ‘ladies parking, I am definitely not buying the idea of keeping all the eggs in the same basket. What says you?

At [email protected], there’s a section for “Single Female Drivers” because they’re near the entrances. But if I park there, aren’t I advertising that I’m driving alone and making me an easier target?

One alternative I’ve used before is to get the security guard to escort me to my car if I’m out on my own and I’ve parked in a secluded spot. I usually tip them for this and it’s definitely not foolproof, but I feel a bit safer.

Down here, we have an “MRT COACH” specifically for ladies ..which I think is great! But Lady only parking? I don’t think it’s feasible and you get to save like 1-2 ladies per mall only! what about the rest? I think what the mall should do overall is TIGHTEN SECURITY on all areas! Hire more security guards that rovers around every now and then to KEEP EVERYONE safe! 🙂
