PETALING JAYA: Any individual that endangers others while attempting the viral "Keke Challenge" might be slapped with a fine.

It requires the person to jump out of a slowly moving car and dance to the song In My Feelings by Drake.

Road Transport Department (JPJ) director-general Datuk Seri Shaharuddin Khalid (pic) said that if such conduct endangers others or causes accidental collisions, a fine might be imposed.

For now, the Department will examine the legal provisions in place for such a course of action.

"We have our legal framework for us to take action, but such actions which do not follow ordinary (road) courtesy are of course not allowed by the ethics of the community," he added.

Shaharuddin was speaking to the media after visiting the Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) Complex in Bukit Kayu Hitam on Saturday (July 28)

The police have also warned the public to stop the "Keke Challenge" on the road, with City Traffic Investigation and Enforcement chief Asst Comm Zulkefly Yahya stating that they did not want anyone to get hurt.

The dance became a craze when comedian Shiggy uploaded a video of him getting jiggy to the tune, gaining five million views in a short period of time.

It exploded further when celebrities Will Smith and Ciara copied the dance.
