It was a ticking bomb waiting to detonate; sooner or later this was bound to happen. Those who frequent Genting Highlands or Gohtong Jaya during the weekends would know that the roads heading up and down the hilltop resort have been completely overwhelmed by convoys of fast cars and superbikes.
Without trying to generalise, most go about their business and have their fun without causing any nuisance but every now and then you have a few rotten apples who’ve somehow misunderstood the public roads up the hill as their father’s own.
Well the management of Genting has had enough and has put their foot down. Effective immediately, all convoys made up of mopeds, superbikes and even sportscars are banned from driving up to Genting Highlands indefinitely, according to a video that surfaced on Facebook yesterday.
According to the policeman in the video, the management decided on the ban due to the loud exhaust noises from large convoys up Genting Highlands. Apparently this has caused a nuisance at hotel lobbies as well – especially for hotel guests who are checking in for a getaway.
There isn’t an official statement from the management so far but we assume this ban applies from the Karak highway exit up to Gohtong Jaya and onwards – perhaps even from the Batang Kali entry point.
What do you think of this ban? Is it long overdue? Or should Genting only penalise those causing nuisance? Is that even feasible? Let us know!
