KUALA LUMPUR: From May 1, police will issue summonses with photographs of vehicles violating traffic regulations in areas monitored by closed-circuit television.
Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar said the new procedure would be used for all traffic offences including speeding and failure to use seat belts.
He said he expected the practice to leave little chance of mistaken identity.
“If there are still people who claim that police got the wrong vehicle (even with a picture attached to the summons), they should produce evidence of the mistake at any traffic counter,” he told reporters here.
In areas without CCTV surveillance, Khalid said summonses would be issued as usual by traffic officers.
He also said stern action would be taken against any police personnel found to have refused to accept a report from a member of the public.
Khalid said top police management had received many complaints about policemen refusing to take reports from the public.
This errant behaviour was discussed in the Delivery Task Force meeting chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin in Putrajaya yesterday, he said.
