Over 8,000 traffic summonses issued in Penang - Malaysiakini

GEORGE TOWN: Over 8,000 summonses have been issued to motorists and motorcyclists in Penang for various traffic regulations since Jan 19, the first day of Ops Sikap 19.

Penang police traffic operations chief Deputy Supt K. Wari said the majority of them were for speeding, while the rest were for offences such as parking haphazardly and obstructing traffic, and not wearing seat belts.

The current Ops Sikap, conducted in conjunction with Chinese New Year, will end on Feb 2.

DSP Wari said since it was the festive period he hoped the public would co-operate with the police and park their vehicles at designated parking lots, especially at tourist spots.
