SHAH ALAM: Police will use creative enforcement throughout Ops Sikap XVII to ensure smooth traffic flow and a low accident rate during Hari Raya.
Deputy Director 1 in the Internal Security and Public Order Department Deputy Comm Datuk Abdul Rahman Hussin said police would issue fines and advise road users on the use of crash helmets and seat belts.
Police would also announce traffic conditions, including peak hours and optimum travel times, through the media, he said after launching the national Ops Sikap XVII campaign here yesterday.
He said police would also carry out strict enforcement at identified accident-prone stretches and put up clear road signages during the campaign from today till Oct 8.
DCP Abdul Rahman said the usual enforcement strategies of getting undercover policemen to monitor bus activities, patrolling of accident-prone stretches and monitoring through closed-circuit television cameras and watch towers would continue.
“We are also urging the public to provide information on any negligent drivers who might put passengers or other vehicles in danger,” he said.
He also called on those travelling home for the holidays to abide by the law to ensure their safety and that of their families.
Telekom Malaysia chief operating officer Datuk Adnan Rofiee, who was also present at the launch, said the company would once again join the police force in Ops Sikap this year.
