SHAH ALAM: Police are tracing the whereabouts of the driver of a Perodua MyVi who allegedly obstructed an Ambulance in the emergency lane recently.

Selangor police chief Comm Datuk Seri Abdul Samah Mat said he was aware that a video of the alleged offence had gone viral on social media.

“We urge the driver to come forward immediately to help with investigations.

“I also want to advise members of the public not to take action into their own hands,” he told reporters at the Selangor police headquarters on Friday.

The two minute and five second long video seems to be dashcam footage from the ambulance allegedly occurred along the Federal Highway near Shah Alam.

The video begins with the words Respect?! Respect the rights of emergency lane usage(Hormati hak pengunaan lorong kecemasan).

Sirens can be heard blaring in the background as the ambulance is seen travelling on the emergency lane.

While some road users are seen to give way to the ambulance, the emergency vehicle catches up to a black Perodua MyVi.

The Perodua keeps its left hand signal light on and refuses to give way to the ambulance even as other vehicles also abusing the emergency lane rush to get out of the way.

Close to the end of the video, the Perodua suddenly brakes and almost causes the ambulance to collide with it.

The Perodua is then seen speeding off.    

Those with information on the case should contact the police hotline at 03-2052 9999 or visit the nearest police station.
