Indiscriminate parking - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

There is a construction site in downtown Kuala Lumpur, just a few meters from the Petronas Towers: they are building another one of those high rise buildings. The site has taken up the old sidewalk and the supervisors decided to build a temporary one using some stakes, a thin rope and some refracting pads, occupying part of the traffic lane. The sidewalk is used by a high number of people who go to work and tourists on their way to the towers.
A few days ago an expert in creative parking took advantage of this space, safely screened from the traffic and conveniently located next to the construction site -  and incredibly empty! - to park his little truck. As a consequence the pedestrians were forced to walk in single file (often in two single files, one for each direction).
I couldn't help taking a few photos.
