Puspakom offers free Raya vehicle inspection (Poll Inside)

SHAH ALAM: Motorists can send their vehicles to Puspakom for a free inspection, beginning today.

The service, provided by the computerised vehicle inspection centre, is aimed at ensuring safe driving during the Hari Raya Aidilfitri festive period.

It will last until April 20, Bernama reported.

Puspakom chief executive officer Mohammed Shukor Ismail said those who wish to have their vehicles checked could just visit any of its branches nationwide, except for Shah Alam in Selangor, Taman Bukit Maluri in Kuala Lumpur and Pasir Gudang in Johor, from 8am to 5pm.

He said its Mobile Inspection Unit is also offering free inspections at several selected locations listed on Puspakom’s website at www.puspakom.com.my or Puspakom Sdn Bhd Facebook.

“The voluntary vehicle inspection will focus on safety aspects with regards to brakes, side slips, tyres, suspensions, emission, lights, bottom and top of the vehicle as well as tinted windscreen,” he said in a statement yesterday.

On a separate issue, Road Transport Department (JPJ) director-general Datuk Zailani Hashim said more than 2.97 million vehicle owners had downloaded and registered through the MyJPJ application since it was introduced on Feb 10.

“Right now we want the public to familiarise themselves with MyJPJ digital and by the middle of this year, the application will be upgraded to show and renew their licence,” he told reporters after breaking fast with 40 orphans and asnaf (tithe recipients) in Kota Baru on Saturday night.

Also present was Kelantan JPJ director Mohd Misuari Abdullah.

Meanwhile, Zailani said leave for JPJ enforcement personnel would be frozen during the long Hari Raya holiday to ensure road users abide by the rules.

He advised motorists to plan their trip, especially those returning to Kelantan where congestion is expected to occur in Gua Musang due to a road closure to make way for construction works for the Lingkaran Tengah Utama Expressway.
