Malaysian driver acts dumb as he replaces clamped wheel with the spare

A Malaysian tourist who parked his car illegally at a Hat Yai market came back after doing some shopping to find the front wheel had been clamped. So he changed it for the spare in the boot.

wheel clampUnfortunately for him a Kim Yong market trader saw him changing the wheel on his Volkswagen and she immediately alerted police. Ong Beng Ek, 25, told police that he had no intention of fleeing, reported Daily News.

“I don’t know the Thai law, ” he claimed. “I was in a hurry to get back to my hotel as I have to get back to Malaysia today.”

Police took pity on him. Instead of charging him with removing (or damaging) the clamp that carries a penalty of up to three months in jail or a fine of up to 5000 baht or both, he was just fined for the illegal parking – and given some helpful advice about the Thai law.
