IPOH: A “total enforcement” approach will be adopted by the police to effectively reduce the number of road accidents and traffic fatalities during Ops Selamat 4/2014 over the Chinese New Year period.
Bukit Aman internal security and public order director Comm Datuk Seri Salleh Mat Rashid said the police would be stricter with their enforcement to ensure motorists would adhere to the regulations.
“Police throughout the country will be taking stern action. Summonses will be issued against traffic offenders immediately.
“We are confident that motorists will be more cautious while driving on the road this time,” he told a press conference here yesterday.
“The police has set a target to reduce the accident rate by 5% during Ops Selamat, which will be carried out nationwide from Jan 24 to Feb 7.”
Comm Salleh said road accidents nationwide fell by 10.3% in two days after Ops Selamat was launched.
“I hope that the accident and house break-in statistics will continue to show such positive results for the next few days,” he added.
Comm Salleh also said the police would step up its patrolling at residential areas to combat house break-ins during the festive period.
He advised residents who are leaving their houses to return to their hometowns to fill up a form to notify the police.
