KUALA LUMPUR : In conjunction with the Chinese New Year celebration next month, the Road Transport Department (RTD) will deploy its officers in a special operation to nab rogue bus drivers.
RTD director-general Datuk Seri Ismail Ahmad said its officers will disguise themselves as express bus passengers and would be stationed randomly in an express bus to ensure bus drivers adhered to traffic regulations.
The special operation will start from Feb 2 until Feb 16.
According to Ismail, the operation was conducted as many people opted for buses as the main transportation medium to return home during the festive season.
"The officer stationed in the bus will evaluate the driving level of the bus driver and if they commit any offence, our officers will issue them the summons on the spot upon reaching the destination," he said as reported by Bernama.
He told a media conference after the launching of Kawasaki Road Safety Campaign at the southbound Sungai Besi toll plaza here Thursday.
Also present were Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, Kawasaki Motors Malaysia executive chairman Datuk Hanipuddin Raja Datuk Nong Chik, and Miros director-general Prof Dr Wong Shaw
