Cops to issue maximum fine for fans who break rules

TRAFFIC offenders beware! There will be a maximum fine of RM300 for those who flouted the rules. 

Selangor Police traffic chief Supt Che Hussain Che Omar said that the F1 Operation would be put in place this weekend and sought cooperation from the fans to follow police instructions. 

“We want to make sure the flow of traffic remains smooth and we hope the public will follow the instructions of our people on duty,” he said. 

“Just follow the traffic lanes designated for them. No parking on road shoulders will be enforced. And those who disregard the rules will be given the maximum summon of RM300.” 

The car of the traffic offender will also be towed to the police station and the offender will also have to pay the towing fee. 

A total of 24 officers and 194 traffic policemen will be involved in ensuring the smooth flow and dispersal of traffic for the 10th edition of the Malaysian GP. 

“Our target is to make sure traffic is dispersed smoothly on a timeline of 45 minutes after the event is over on race day,” said Che Hussain. 

“We managed to do it in 2005 and we hope to achieve this with the cooperation from everyone concerned.” 

He hoped the public would make an effort not just to come early but also with parking stickers in hand. 

Those arriving in the city by flight and planning to use public transport to catch the event are also urged to fix their schedule early to avoid unnecessary delays.
