HARAMKAN BASIKAL ITU !!! selagi tak diharamkan selagi itu masalah tak selesai . This guy really an opportunist... Good at sweet talking only...but just yet another useless minister. This is the sign of a useless minister Sure he in right ministery? Lol, hopefully when the menteri2 do their march on the road the lajak stunt lajak the menteri car 🤭🤭 then see if the driver menteri kena 6 Y jail or the lajak mati katak 🤣🤣

Charge the parents then you see how the tables are turned Just Saying: Dr Wee's statement is all bullshit. The police are not stupid they know what is going on and who the Basikal Lajak are. But the police are turning a blind eye of their illegal activities. The innocent person was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

In Malaysia never they don't believe on Pro Active actions !! After more than 40yrs, v r still taking a very soft approach. Wat's badly lacking all these yrs r consistent n constant firm enforcement, incldng not jz issue summons but 2 complete d process right up 2 prosecution weekasiongmp Yup like considering it an endemic. Less restrictions for Mat Lajak “activities” which by the way is the cause of accidents and heavier penalties for motorised vehicles.

Please make it illegal for illegal vehicles on highways and roads … I suppse it should already be the laws right .. if it’s a illegal vehicles ?
