Demerit point system in effect, motorists should check status in RTD website


KUALA LUMPUR: Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai has advised road users to check with the RTD website to find out if their licence has been slapped with demerit points.

"We don't want to penalise anybody (unnecessarily), but we need to have this strict enforcement so that it becomes a culture, and it will actually enhance road safety culture among Malaysians," he said.

Liow was speaking to reporters after launching the "Belt and Road Initiative: Malaysia-China Cultural and Arts Year" programme at Wisma MCA here yesterday. -- BERNAMA
