SINGAPORE – The delivery manager was shocked to find that on Wednesday (April 24) at Jewel Changi Airport he had charged more than $ 3,100.
This happened because his previous trip on April 10 was not registered, the airport said.
The photo of a car parking payment machine, which was payable at $ 3,157,60, was a virus after a driver who wanted to be known as Supra Mac was posted on Facebook on Wednesday.
For 27 years, Mr Supra told Straits that he had only been in Jewel's loading / unloading bay for no more than 45 minutes.
The Jewel Changi Airport Devt representative confirmed the incident in response to the questions and explained that this was because the previous departure of the driver from the territory was not registered.
"We confirm that this was the case on April 10 in the Jewel Gulf," a spokesman said on Friday.
"It is not registered that the driver has left the car park, and so the parking fee was provided until the next visit on April 24."
The representative added that all drivers are encouraged to keep a "safe distance" from the front car to ensure that the parking system successfully registers all entrances and exits.
Mr Supra said he had not encountered problems when he left the car park on 10 April and that he had not shut down any vehicles.
However, after supplying him on 24 April, he found that it was not possible to leave the car park due to "insufficient balance".
"I just added my cash card in the morning … When I saw the amount, it was like a joke," he said.
After contacting the Jewel staff member via the intercom he was released from the parking lot, waiting for about 10 to 15 minutes. No payment was requested.
Mr Supra said, "I think no one is to blame. It was just a mistake and they solved it."
