JOHOR BARU: A total of 326 lorries have been issued summonses for overloading since the start of the new year.
The summonses were issued after 758 lorries were checked at Tanjung Puteri and the Second Link. The operations were conducted from Jan 1 until Jan 8.
Johor Road Transport Department director Mohd Rosli Ramli said the checks were in response to public complaints that overloaded lorries were damaging roads.
On the protest by lorry drivers on Wednesday, Mohd Rosli said the department would not be deterred.
“We have ceased such operations for now but we will resume them in the near future.
“We strongly urged all parties not to participate in such protests,” he said.
However, he said that the lorry drivers were free to express any grievances to the department.
