Tyre Clampings at McDonald's

Received this via an email. Is it really happening in McDonald's of Malaysia?
McDonald's Autocity in Penang has a new rule on their parking lots (maybe this is not a new rule just I did not noticed on that). Anyone who parks their cars at their parking lots (even though you are their customers) for more than 2 hours, their tires will be clamped. Subsequently, you need to pay RM50 just to open the car clamp. They have displayed the notice regarding this and there will be no warning letter issue out even though you have done it on first time (no chance given).

McDonald's Greenland (in Penang too) has the same rule as well. If you park yr car more than certain period, you will be fined. However, this franchise will first issue the warning letter before clamp your tire (my friend has experienced it). I heard from McD Autocity's staff that there is one more "private car park" in Butterworth which do not allow their customers to park their car more than 45 minutes. Else, your car's tire will be clamped and you will be fined just to open the lock.

Thus, in future, while you park your car in any McD franchise, pls be aware on the sign board (it is hardly to be noticed due to the color tone and the landscaping around). They did not have any standardization on this rule for all McD franchises. Feedback already provided to their head quarter but there is no response from them.

Thanks and hope that you all still can enjoy yr meal in McD.
Together with the email, an attachment of the receipt issued for the RM50 tyre clamping. As this lousy laptop don't any picture softwares (as compared to mine), I will post that receipt in due course.

is it necessary to do so or was the parking lot too small that needs time limit for parking.

i felt it wld be unfair if the WARNING NOTICE was not large enough for the public to see and then u impose the penalty.

u can't blame them (if proper notice was sighted) as such McD cld be located near commercial centres where car park is insufficient.
