Cookies and clothes: Lame excuses to cross districts and states - police


The police said they are hearing lame excuses from road users for travelling inter-district and inter-state without permission, such as sending clothes and Raya cookies to friends.

Petaling Jaya district police chief ACP Mohamad Fakhrudin Abdul Hamid said they did not issue compounds to those road users but ordered them to turn back.

However, he said compounds will be issued in the future to errant drivers immediately without compromise.

“We have already mounted the roadblocks from yesterday (May 9) and found that there were still many stubborn road users attempting to do inter-state travel without valid reasons. They were ordered to turn back.

“Among their reasons were sending clothes to friends’ houses in Shah Alam, buying goods, and taking families for shopping in the Shah Alam area,” he told Bernama after conducting a check at the roadblock at KM34 of the Federal Highway last night.

He said in order to facilitate the movement of traffic during the working day, the police would open additional routes but strict inspections would remain as usual.

Fakhrudin also advised the public to abide by the movement control order issued by the National Security Council.

Meanwhile, a check by Bernama at the Duta Toll Plaza and Sungai Besi Toll Plaza found that traffic flow on several main routes in and out of the capital was under control despite some congestion due to police inspection at roadblocks.

On Saturday, Senior Minister (Security) Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced that all inter-district and inter-state travel will not be allowed without the permission of the police from May 10 to June 6.
