4,169 Summons Issued for Rempits in Penang

A total of 4,169 summons related to rempits (road hooligans) were issued by the authorities throughout Penang as of April this year.

State Youth, Sports and Health EXCO, Daniel Gooi Zi Sen said, 150 operations were carried out during that period involving 14 identified ‘hot’ locations.

“Among them are the Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway, the Bayan Baru roundabout, Jalan Tun Dr Awang, Padang Kota Lama, the Butterworth Outer Ring, the North-South Expressway Project (PLUS) Sama Gagah Expressway and the Penang Second Bridge.

“Other locations are Jalan Bukit Gambir, Jalan Mayang Pasir, Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah, Butterworth-Kulim Expressway (BKE) and Taman Ilmu located in Seberang Perai Selatan.

“In this regard, the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) has carried out an integrated operation together with the Road Transport Department (JPJ), the Department of Environment (JAS) and the Local Authorities,” he said.

In the same development, he insisted that all parties take it seriously and are committed to working hand in hand in curbing and eradicating the problems involving mat rempit or street thugs.

“This includes inspection of shop premises that modify motorcycles and other enforcement in accordance with the provisions of the law in addition to conducting integrated operations every weekend, traffic patrols and roadblocks,” he explained.

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."
