We're all pretty much guilty for beating the red light every once in a while. But that's going to change real soon, as the Road Transport Department (JPJ) is now actively looking out for drivers and riders who do not stop at red lights.

According to JPJ Deputy Director-General of Planning and Operations, Aedy Fadly Ramli said that JPJ will be conducting a special operation nationwide called "Ops Merah" to arrest errant drivers who beat the red lights.

"The nationwide record for traffic light violations in 2019 was 22,656 cases and compounds were issued while in 2020, the number somewhat reduced to 12,764 cases due to the enforcement of the movement control order (MCO). Despite that, the number of cases is still high compared to other traffic violations," he said.

Don't take this warning too lightly, as offenders will receive a summon with a maximum compound of RM300 and a court fine not exceeding RM2,000. It's time to get your act together and drive responsibly!
