KEPALA BATAS: Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said the Road Transport Department (JPJ) should not give excuses for not suspending the driving licences of drivers who had been issued a warrant of arrest. 

He said the department should resolve whatever technical issues instead of “giving excuses.” 

He was commenting on the statement by JPJ Director-General Datuk Dr Mohd Shahar Sidek that it was difficult for the department to revoke or suspend the driving licence of drivers who were involved in road accidents or had too many traffic offence summonses.
