The Road Transport Department (JPJ) issued 16,377 summonses for various traffic offences to motorists nationwide under the 2022 Hari Raya Aidilfitri Operation between April 29 and May 8.
Its director-general Zailani Hashim said a total of 89,490 vehicles were inspected during the same period.
“The department also issued a total of 776 notice P22 summonses, which is an order for inspection involving five main offences, namely failing to comply with traffic lights, driving on emergency lanes, using mobile phones while driving, overtaking at double lines and speeding.
“For these five offences, the errant motorists will face court action as the offences cannot be compounded,” he told a press conference during the operation conducted at Jalan Kota Bharu-Pasir Pekan in Tumpat last night.
He said a total of 58,182 speeding offences were also detected through the 45 automatic awareness security system cameras installed at various locations nationwide over the same period.
