SHAH ALAM: Police have issued more than a thousand traffic summonses to secondary school students – almost a quarter of them lower secondary students – following a statewide operation to weed out errant road users among school-goers.
Selangor traffic enforcement and investigation department chief Supt Kamaludin Mohamad said police conducted a three-day operation earlier this week to educate road users, especially motorcyclists.
“We issued 1,186 summonses to students for various offences, including not wearing a helmet, no valid road tax, no valid licence, no side mirrors, and fancy number plates,” he told reporters at the Selangor police headquarters Friday.
He said the majority of the summonses were issued to Form Five students (624).
“What’s more surprising is that we found students in Form One (14), Two (73) and Three (187) committing such offences as well,” he said.
