SIBU: Police have advised the public, especially young people, to steer clear of illegal racing activities.

Acting district police chief Supt Dr Collin Babat on Saturday (Jan 22) cautioned against the danger it posed to the safety of others.

“It not only endangers the safety of other road users but can also cause road accidents, injuries or death to the motorcyclists themselves,” he said.

Meanwhile, he informed that an operation carried out by the Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department on Friday (Jan 21) saw a total of 51 summonses for various traffic offenses being issued to motorists.

Collin explained that the operation, conducted from 8pm to 10pm, was manned by an officer and seven police personnel.

“A total of 68 motorcycles, 33 cars, 12 pick-up vehicles and six vans were inspected. A total of 83 individuals were also inspected.

Collin added the purpose of the operation was to educate and detect illegal racing around the district.

“The current situation is good and there were no incidents during the operation,” he said.
