It was a move taken to curb traffic violations, said its chief Comm Datuk Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay.
“We are not only focusing on Mat Rempit and Mat Lajak here but also drunk drivers as well.”
On Saturday, police issued 1,035 summons to road users for traffic offences, he said after launching the Johor Baru (North) community policing programme here yesterday.
Police here had carried out 128 operations in the past nine months, arresting 337 people between the ages of 15 and 26 for being involved in illegal racing
In an unrelated matter, police arrested a 23-year-old woman who rammed her vehicle into two other cars, killing one person and injuring another at KM4 of the Jalan Johor Baru-Kota Tinggi near Plaza Pelangi here.
Comm Ayob said the woman not only tested positive for drugs, but also did not have a driving licence.
The car that she drove belonged to her fiancé. Its insurance and road tax had expired.
“She said there was another car that stopped in front of her but a video, which had gone viral, proved otherwise. It could be clearly seen that she was speeding,” he added.
On Saturday, a 31-year-old man died on the spot after a car rammed into his vehicle at a traffic light.
