Cyclists schooled on traffic rules

KUALA LUMPUR: A total 327 summonses were issued for various traffic offences following operations in Jalan P. Ramlee and Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman.

“We detained seven men for driving while under the influence of alcohol,” said Kuala Lumpur Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department (JSPT) chief Asst Comm Sarifudin Mohd Salleh.

“And eight motorcycles were seized for illegal modifications,” he elaborated.

He said operations were conducted from 9pm on Wednesday to 3am yesterday.

JSPT personnel also approached 30 cyclists with advice on cycling safety.

“Action can be taken against reckless cyclists under Section 54(1) of the Road Transport Act which carries a fine of RM1,000 to RM5,000 or not more than 12 months imprisonment upon conviction.

“Those who disregard signage about cycling on the highway or expressway can be investigated under Section 79 of the Act,” he said.

They are liable to a fine of between RM300 and RM2,000, while Section 112(3) of the same Act outlines that the bicycles can be seized.

Bicycles must also have front and rear lights, as well as other safety features like bells and brakes, he said.
