SHAH ALAM: Traffic in Selangor has dropped between 70% and 80% since the first day of the lockdown

Selangor police chief Comm Datuk Arjunaidi Mohamed said as of Thursday (June 3), traffic had dropped drastically as only those with the proper approval letters were allowed to travel.

"Between June 1 and June 3, we have issued 483 compound notices for violating the Covid-19 standard operating procedure (SOP).

"Among the top offences were not wearing face masks and not maintaining physical distancing," he told a press conference at the state police headquarters on Friday (June 4).

Comm Arjunaidi said he has instructed all OCPDs in Selangor to increase roadblocks and checks by the compliance operations teams.

"We will check all premises including factories to ensure that all abide by the SOP. We will check their declaration (approval letters) whether it is genuine or otherwise," he added.

Cops will also look into claims that some individuals or parties had misused the letters issued by the International Trade and Industry Ministry (Miti), Comm Arjunaidi said.

"We are in the midst of investigating it," he said.
