PETALING JAYA: Any individual that endangers others while attempting the viral Keke Challenge illegally might be slapped with a fine, the Road Transport Depart­ment (JPJ) warns.

The Keke Challenge requires a person to jump out of a slow moving car and dance to the song In My Feelings by Drake.

According to JPJ director-general Datuk Seri Shaharuddin Khalid, if the act endangered others or caused accidental collisions, a fine might be imposed.

For now, the department will examine the legal provisions.

“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 Complex in Bukit Kayu Hitam yesterday.

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

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 other people could get hurt.
