|KUCHING (Jan 28): Six motorcycles were seized by the Road Transport Department (JPJ) for various offences during a roadblock held in conjunction with the Chinese New Year celebration at Jalan Kuching-Serian yesterday.
JPJ Sarawak in a statement said a total of 124 vehicles were checked during the operation.
“The six motorcyclists were found to have violated the law for offences such as driving without a driver’s licence, an expired driver’s licence and no insurance coverage. The motorcycles were seized to avoid a repeat of the offence(s) on the road,” it explained.
Notices were also issued to vehicles with expired road tax, expired insurance coverage, invalid driver’s license and vehicles which failed to meet JPJ’s technical specifications, it said.
The department also reminded individuals who want to drive a vehicle to ensure that they have a valid driver’s licence.
