ROAD Transport Department (JPJ) enforcement officers and policemen in plainclothes will be on their rounds to identify traffic offenders during Ops Sikap XII from Sunday to Feb 25.
China Press quoted JPJ director-general Ahmad Mustapha Abdul Rashid as saying that the enforcement teams would not stop offenders but only identify them during their rounds.
They will take down the registration numbers or snap pictures of those who flout traffic rules and hand over the details to JPJ for further action.
“The offenders will be given notices to attend inquiries held by JPJ. If we find their reasons acceptable, summonses will not be issued,” he told the daily.
A total of 1,200 JPJ enforcement officers will have their leave frozen for the 15-day road safety campaign carried out in conjunction with the Chinese New Year.
