With the Hari Raya frenzy set to hit the open roads, the Minister of Transport, Wee Ka Siong, has thrown a curveball to all road users.
Wee announced that during the Ops Bersepadu, taking place from the 29th of April to the 8th of May, these offenses committed cannot be compounded and will have to settled in court. They include:
- Using the phone while driving
- Cutting queues
- Running the red light
- Driving in the emergency lane
Wee also added that as many as 2,200 Road Transport Department (JPJ) enforcement officers will be deployed during the period, with some going undercover as passengers in express buses along with enforcement check points at 14 location along major highways.
During the campaign, there’ll also be a ban on heavy-load trailers three days before Hari Raya (between 30th April to 2nd May) and two days after (between 7th to 8th May) to ease congestion.
