Help JPJ catch traffic offenders

PETALING JAYA: The Road Transport Department (JPJ) hopes more people become their “eyes” and snap photographs of traffic offenders during the Hari Raya season.

JPJ public relations officer Noraini Mohd Nawi said in a similar operation launched during Chinese New Year (Jan 21 to Feb 20), it received only 69 complaints from the public.

The department’s Ops Samaran operations resulted in them detecting 7,229 offences, of which 3,887 were for beating the traffic lights.

Those caught breaking traffic rules would be called for an interview and issued summonses later.

Noraini said those who did not attend the interview would be blacklisted.

JPJ director-general Datuk Solah Mat Hassan had said on Sunday that no roadblock would be set up to ensure smoother traffic flow during the Hari Raya balik kampung rush.

He said department officers would be on the road and in disguise to obtain photographic evidence of any transgression.
 
Noraini said the pictures taken by the public should be clear in showing the offence and the vehicle number plate.

She said the date and location of the offence should also be included in the complaint.

She added that any summons issued could be challenged in court, but most admitted their mistakes after seeing the proof.

“We will first ask them where they were and only then show them the proof,” she said.

Noraini said there is no time limit to when the public can send in complaints but advised that it should be done as soon as possible.

The police, meanwhile, will also not conduct any roadblocks during the festive season.

Selangor Traffic chief Supt Zulkifli Jonit said the police would launch Ops Sikap to ensure safety and smoother traffic flow.

The public can send any pictures of offences to the JPJ email at aduantrafik@jpj.gov.my.
