MOTORISTS turning into Jln Subang (opposite the railway station) from Jln Kepong-Sg Buloh are being unfairly issued summonses for a non-existent traffic offence.
The police, waiting under the uncompleted flyover opposite the Sg Buloh military camp, claim that motorists cross the double lines at the corner.
However, no double lines can be seen, not even faintly. Where did the traffic police get the idea that there are double lines at the corner? If there are double lines, they should be clearly visible to be of any use.
If there are no double lines, is it an offence if one changes lanes at the last minute as there are signboards informing motorists that road works are in progress?
Many motorists have been unfairly issued summonses and most just accept the summons issued without bringing up the matter of the non-existent double lines.
The traffic police chief in the area should investigate this issue and cancel all summonses issued for this offence.
Double lines should be clearly visible and it is the task of the Public Works Department to ensure this.
The bottom line is that motorists should not be unfairly penalised for an offence that is not.
