Cops tell dashcam owners to come forward to help probe into accident, road bully cases

THE police are urging dashcam owners to come forward as witnesses to help with investigations into any accident or road bully cases.

Kemaman police chief Supt Hanyan Ramlan said the collaboration would also ensure the smooth running of the “Op Selamat 21” road safety campaign in conjunction with Chinese New Year.

“With this approach, all dashcam owners will become public informants to all enforcement agencies,” he said here today.

In related news, a total of 14 deaths were recorded as of the fourth day of “Op Selamat 21” yesterday (Feb 11), according to the Department of Traffic Investigation and Enforcement (JSPT) in a statement today.

It said that during that period a total of 1,203 accidents were also recorded involving 1,480 vehicles.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Razarudin Husain reportedly said that this edition of “Op Selamat” maintains the theme of “Rumah Selamat, Sampai ke Destinasi” (safe home, reaching the destination safely).

He added that the operation aimed at ensuring smooth traffic flow, as well as reducing the rate of road accidents, the protection of property and homes and reducing the rate of house break-ins during the festive period. – Feb 12, 2024
