TRAFFIC policemen cannot issue summonses to motorists who show their MyKad instead of their driving licences, Bukit Aman traffic chief Datuk Hamza Mat Taib said.
He added that he had taken his men to task several times for issuing summonses to drivers who submitted their MyKad for verification when the officers themselves were not equipped with MyKad electronic readers.
“All information is available in the MyKad.
“If the police officer is not equipped with a MyKad reader, then they don't have to issue summonses to motorists (for not producing the driving licence),” he told Berita Minggu.
Hamza said 60% of the 4,500 traffic police officers had been equipped with the MyKad reader so far.
