YOUTH involved in “basikal lajak” (bicycles dangerously modified for street racing) should be provided suitable space and facilities to express their passion in a safe environment. This is something natural. Trying to ban such activities will not be successful and they will simply reappear elsewhere later on.
We cannot blame the kids for their activities, nor classify their activities as mere escapism. No doubt the majority of the children involved in such activities come from B40 (lower income group) families or broken homes. The children are the victims of what we have deprived them of.
