20 Summonses, 3 Confiscation for Exhaust Modifications

A total of 20 summonses were issued and 3 motorcycles confiscated for the offence of modifying the motorcycle’s exhaust in the Operasi Motosikal (Motorcycle Operation) in the Bukit Ampang Saujana area, yesterday (7th April 2024).

Ampang Jaya District Police Chief, Assistant Commissioner Mohd Azam Ismail said, the operation from 11pm to 3am was carried out by the Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Division of the Ampang Jaya District Police Headquarters (IPD) with a senior officer and 14 members.

According to him, the operations focused more on motorcycles, as usual.

“This is because the vehicle is often seen with structural modifications, especially on the exhaust which disturbs public order.

“As a result of the operation, a total of six individuals were checked along with six vehicles and a total of 20 summonses were issued for common offences such as driving without a valid license, registration number not in accordance with specifications, modification of the exhaust and also other offences,” he said.

He said, in addition, three motorbikes were confiscated in accordance with Section 64(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987 and Section 6(4) of the same act for making extreme modifications to the exhaust and the brakes not working.

“The seized vehicle was brought back to the Ampang Traffic Police Station for further action.

“The celebration of Hari Raya Aidilfitri will arrive soon, therefore the next of kin and guardians are reminded to monitor the children’s activities more closely,” he said.

Wahid's lust for motorcycles was spurred on by his late-Dad's love for his Lambretta on which he courted, married his mother, and took baby Wahid riding on it. He has since worked in the motorcycle and automotive industry for many years, before taking up riding courses and testing many, many motorcycles since becoming a motojournalist. Wahid likes to see things differently. What can you say about a guy who sees a road safety message in AC/DC's "Highway to Hell."
