JOHOR BARU: The police and Road Transport Department (JPJ) plan to have monthly operations to nab errant motorists, said the JPJ director-general Datuk Emran Kadir.  

He said the joint operations could ensure that motorists obey the law, including when travelling along highways and expressways.  

Emran was speaking to reporters at the Skudai toll plaza after a joint operation between JPJ and 10 other agencies and departments on Friday night.  

The two-day operation involved 109 personnel from departments and agencies including JPJ, narcotics and traffic police, Department of Environment, Immigration Department, National Drug Agency, Commercial Vehicle Licensing Board (CVLB) and Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA).  

A total of 492 drivers were booked under JPJ-related cases (392), traffic (64), Immigration (16), CVLB (four), DOE (eight), narcotics (four) and Puspakom (four).  

“This is the second time that the JPJ is holding joint operations with other government bodies and I have already instructed state JPJ directors to have such operations, if possible, at least once a month. 

“The reason for such operations is for government bodies to help each other and this is especially ideal for agencies and department with limited personnel,” said Emran.
