Monday, 06 Apr 2020 08:44 AM MYTArmy and police personnel conducting roadblock checks during the movement control order (MCO) in Shah Alam April 5, 2020. — Picture by Miera ZulyanaKUALA LUMPUR, April 6 — The public should stop blaming the police for the traffic congestion due to roadblocks being mounted to ensure compliance to the movement control order (MCO), said Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador.
He said the public is expected to comply with the MCO regulations which are enforced to limit the people’s movement to break the chain of the Covid-19 infection in the country.“We have to set up roadblocks across the country to curb the spread of Covid-19, as well as restrict the people’s movement.
“I advise the public, for those who are not in the list of the essential service sector to understand the MCO regulations and that they have to go through the roadblocks,” he said when met by Bernama at Bukit Aman here.Abdul Hamid said in the event of traffic congestion during the roadblock, the public should be patient as the police were doing their job to ensure only those who are allowed to leave home could pass through.
“The people should not complain about trivial issues such as traffic congestion of 10 to 15 minutes on highways or in the town centres.“They should think about the traffic congestion on highways and in Kuala Lumpur before MCO is enforced...don’t blame the roadblocks (during MCO) for the traffic congestion now,” he said and expressed regrets over the attitude of some members of the public in criticising the police for mounting roadblocks throughout the country now.
Abdul Hamid said he went to the ground to see his men at work at roadblocks and advised them to be patient and do their job professionally.“Alhamdulillah, they showed a high level of patience in dealing with this issue (accepting criticism). The public should remember that my men, members of the armed forces and from other authorities who are on duty at roadblocks are also exposed to the risk of Covid-19.Read more: Malay Mail »
Suggest to put up 2 lanes. 1 for those with permission to go out (express) while the other to get screen for the reason to go out. Omg!! Who complained? The silly cows of coz. Yes is true is MCO stay at home 👍 Whoever complained of traffic jam at this time is lunatic. Yes , agree . Mesti la jammed. I car needs 1 min minimum to ask. Kalau excuses tak masuk akal, waste another 5 mins. Do the maths. Yg duk mann the roadblock lagi penat tau. Hujan panas. StayAtHome pdrmrocks PDRM FrontLineHeroes
Traffic jam at MCO, wat the heck are u doing out there? Agree the roadblock ! PDRMsia Suggest that allow Doctor, Nurse, food track delivery. Please has the SPECIAL LANE , ALLOW THEM 'CUT Q' and ALLOW USE EMERGENCY LANE. It easy can be done, by identified their hospital uniform, show the hospital ID Card.
PDRM can probably create a special lane (fast track) for those in emergencies, where documentation or proof will be necessary? But knowing Malaysians, they'll use this lane instead to jump the queue, adding to the congestion, defeating the very purpose of setting up the lane! Why is there even a traffic jam? Shouldn't people be indoors? If they choose to go out, then they shouldn't complain!
Traffic jam during CMO COVID19Malaysia Just unbelievable...😑 Do all/any roadblocks make allowances to ‘fast track’ the ‘Petugas Kesihatan’? Dlm pkp pun leh jem U don't want jam? Stay at home. Don't be surprised that some of them going out with stupid reasons... Normally gov are been selective effectively, they choose which benefits them then they r effectively those benefit rakyat u got to wait
Reminds me of the time when the now-retired traffic police boss pulled out his guys off the road from all the complaints about police making traffic jam worse. A friend said she arrived at her office at 10am instead of the usual before office hours! 😂 And who put up the roadblocks. Yes to follow orders of imposing MCO. But has anyone sat down to rethink how to handle the roadblocks more efficiently
Your are exactly correct Tan Sri IGP. Not your team's fault. Agree with that Goddamnit...yeah right! Its ALWAYS the people's fault. 'It is so easy to be wrong—and to persist in being wrong—when the costs of being wrong are paid by others.' - Thomas Sowell StayAtHome which part don't understand? Police are doing their jobs. Don't complain. If you need to be out, you need to put up with it. And it would be jammed up on a normal day anyway. So something to remind us about life before and after MCO.
Probably wouldn’t be jammed if people who don’t need to be out, aren’t out 😒
