BUKIT MERTAJAM, Oct 30 – The Road Transport Department (JPJ) will be launching a special operation to book goods vehicles which are overloaded or pose safety risks, said its director-general Datuk Seri Ismail Ahmad.

He said this followed the approval given by the Attorney-General’s Chambers on Oct 20 for JPJ to continue submitting investigation papers (IPs) on such offences directly to the Public Prosecutor without having to go through the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) as was the case before. “From Dec 1, JPJ will come down hard on owners, companies and drivers of goods vehicles if they are found to be overloaded or pose safety risks.

“We were having difficulties on this because the IPs had to be submitted to SPAD first before going to the Public Prosecutor but now that has been settled,” he told reporters after a meeting with JPJ enforcement personnel from the northern zone here Thursday. On another matter, Ismail said JPJ would suspend the licence of any driving school institute if it was found it had charged fees above the ceiling limit. The ceiling for the driving licence for manual cars is RM1,150, automatic cars (RM1,250) and motorcycles (B2) is RM350.
