JPJ: No Compromise on Non-compliance

The Road Transport Department (JPJ) will not compromise with non-compliance by any operators of commercial vehicles in Malaysia. 

A media statement was issued by the department following the tragic accident along KM246 of the North-South Expressway on May 12 which claimed the lives of five students of Universiti Sultan Azlan Shah (USAS).

“The Industry Code of Practice for Road Transport Activities 2010 (ICOP) together with the Land Public Transport Agency (APAD) is being implemented to determine the form of legal action which can be taken.

“If investigation via ICOP finds the driver and operator failing to abide by the terms set by APAD and JPJ, their license and permit can be suspended or revoked under the Land Public Transport Act 2010.

“The suspension of driving license can be imposed under Road Transport Act 1987 if the driver is charged in court. 

The tragedy which occurred at midnight involved a Honda City and two trailers.

Checks via the mySIKAP JPJ system found that the trailer driver involved has 8 records of offences which have been settled and 1 which is still active with 12 demerit points under the Demerit Points System for Traffic Offences (KEJARA).

“The total accumulated demerit points will affect the suspension or revocation of driving license.

“JPJ’s efforts, including the implementation of the road ban for goods-carrying vehicles during Raya, are aimed to prevent fatal accidents.
