M Update 22/1/2019 – From Jan 29 to Feb 12, motorists guilty of committing six major traffic offences will be immediately issued a RM300 summons as part of the 14th Op Selamat.
Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Tan Sri Noor Rashid Ibrahim, said these offences include driving in the emergency lane; speeding; queue-jumping; overtaking on a double line; disregarding the traffic lights; as well as using mobile phones while driving.
He said the move is meant to educate road users on complying with traffic regulations, on top of ensuring the safety of road users during the festive period.
“We are expecting traffic congestion in several locations due to the increase in the number of vehicles during the Chinese New Year holidays.
“Police will be increasing monitoring efforts to control traffic flow and reduce accidents,” he said.
