The rising number of hawkers doing business in inappropriate places, such as pedestrian areas, puts the public at risk. This has been a concern of city folks who express frustrations over the irresponsible act, and this was revealed by Bernama through the first of a three-part series.
KUALA LUMPUR, March 3 (Bernama) — Obstructing pedestrians, disrupting traffic, filthy conditions, and obscuring the view are among the public complaints regarding hawkers doing business in inappropriate locations, including sidewalks and parking lots around the federal capital.
A check by Bernama in several locations like Sentul and Setiawangsa found that such activities not only caused traffic congestion but also disrupted public facilities such as bus stops.
