In as many times these three months, motorists have been found driving on the wrong side of the road – the latest one happening at around 8.20am yesterday.
Updated: A man from Pasir Gudang was detained when he went to the traffic division of the Kulai District Police Headquarters at 1.10 am to assist in the investigation. His oral statement was recorded and he admitted driving the car alone. He would be brought to the magistrate’s court today to obtain a remand order.
A video has gone viral of a Perodua Myvi going against traffic at the 34th KM (northbound) on the North-South Expressway (NSE) near Kulai, Johor. A motorist on the opposite lane recorded the footage.
According to The Star, PLUS Malaysia Bhd chief operating officer Mohammad Fuad Khusairi said the PLUS Traffic Monitoring Centre received a call from a road user about the incident.
“A PLUS patrol team was dispatched to the scene but upon arriving at the location found that the Myvi had already left the scene,” he said.
He said PLUS viewed the issue seriously as it could put other highway users at risk.
“We will collaborate with the police, Road Transport Department and other related agencies to stem such misbehaviour,” Mohammad Fuad said.
He urged motorists to contact PLUSLine at 1800-88-0000 if they came across any unusual activity which could endanger other road users.
Kulai OCPD Supt Razak Md Said said the incident was being investigated under Section 42 of the Road Transport Act 1987 for reckless and dangerous driving.
He said police would carry out investigations to track down the driver and find out the motive behind the act. Those with information can contact the Kulai district traffic police headquarters at 07-663-4222.
