KERATAN AKHBAR PILIHAN: KEEPING A CLOSE EYE ON ILLEGAL RACES - IGP

Kuala Lumpur, 14th August 2022 - To ensure the safety of all road users, the police will continue their blitz against illegal racers nationwide, says Inspector-General of Police (IGP) IG Tan Sri Acryl Sani Hj. Abdullah Sani.

Stressing that operations against illegal racers are not seasonal, the nation's top cop said they were conducted by the Jabatan Siasatan Dan Penguatkuasaan Trafik PDRM (JSPT) on a weekly basis, especially during weekends.

"Such enforcement operations are led by the respective state and district JSPT chiefs with the goal of nabbing the wrongdoers and ensuring the safety of all road users," he told The Star yesterday.

The operations were conducted after the JSPT identified the hot-spots for such races, he said.

"Information on the races are obtained through intelligence gathering and from the public as well," he added.

One of the main challenges faced by the police was the higher risk posed by the illegal racers, Tan Sri Acryl Sani said.

"They are becoming more brazen not only when carrying out their stunts, but also when they are trying to escape the authorities.

"In turn, they are endangering not only themselves but the enforcement personnel and other road users as well.

"Despite the danger, the police are committed to safeguarding the safety of the public," he said.
