KOTA KINABALU: Police have issued 56 summonses and seized 41 motorcycles on riders and drivers for violating traffic rules along Jalan Kepayan.

Twenty-eight officers mounted a two-day large scale operation setting up roadblocks to bust speed demons and traffic violators starting from 11.30pm on Saturday until 5am on Sunday.

A total of 46 motorcyclists and their pillion riders were inspected with a handful of them testing positive for drugs. Among the violations were having modified registration plates, driving without license or an uninsured vehicle, vehicles with expired or no road tax, and exterior modifications to the vehicle.

All individuals were investigated under Section 81(3) of the Road Transport Act 1987. Offenders can be fined up to RM2,000 or six months’ imprisonment, or both.

In a statement, city police chief ACP M Chandra said that five males with traffic arrest warrants were detained and later brought to Kota Kinabalu traffic police station for further action.

“Steer away from illegal street racing and stop its spread by not being an audience to the illegal activity,” Chandra advised.
