MACHANG: The Kelantan Road Transport Department (JPJ) has seized 422 vehicles during the Special Motorcycle Operation from Sept 1 until Wednesday (Sept 27).

Kelantan JPJ deputy director Nazili Kadir said the figure included 151 motorcycles operated by foreign nationals.

"Throughout the operation, 14,163 vehicles were inspected, of which 2,053 were subjected to action, 422 were seized and 5,015 summonses were issued,” he told a press conference after the operation at the JPJ Enforcement Station in Labok on Wednesday night.

Nazili said the operation aimed at monitoring, detecting and taking action against motorcycle riders and owners who committed offences under the Road Transport Act 1987 and traffic regulations.

"This operation also focused on offences related to driving licences, motor vehicle licences, traffic signal violations, modifications and illegal racing,” he added.

He advised the public not to rent or lend their vehicles to foreigners, as it is an offence that could lead to legal consequences.

"When foreigners who drive without a valid licence are involved in an accident, it makes insurance claims difficult,” he said. – Bernama
