Parking in Singapore

I have been looking up car parks today. Public carparks are generally under three agencies :- the LTA, the URA and the HDB. The URA usually manages carparks in more public areas or the more central areas of Singapore, whereas HDB concentrates on parking in HDB estates.

I called up to speak with someone from the HDB Car Parks Section to ask if someone could make a claim for anything that happened in a car park. He said that they could file a claim with their insurance company but he doubted they would win. He said that there are inherent risks in a public car park and parking there. I then asked said that both LTA and URA provided for this specifically and he said they have a similar clause but isn't quite sure where. I'll go dig up some more.

I believe it's the same for all car parks, be it public or private. If you drive into a car park at a shopping mall, there is a sign at the entrance to say that you park at your own risk and any damages or losses that arose from parking on the premises is not the responsibility of the management.

autumnpiglet - I just wanted to make sure that sign was up someplace. I don't remember there being a sign in most HDB carparks unlike shopping malls which obviously have an entrance of some kind where a notice is posted.

Vegancatsg - VERY cute!
