Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) have responded to a viral post made by a concerned citizen over the weekend, calling out a member of the force for parking his motorbike in the handicapped parking bay of a Kuala Lumpur-area petrol station.

Noraishah Mydin Abd Aziz, self-described on her social media profile as a scientist and a spina bifida activist, tagged the Home Minister Muhyiddin Yassin in her tweet, along with a photo of a woman in a wheelchair in the foreground.
To their credit, PDRM reacted quickly to the public relations disaster, asking here where the incident occurred, and relaying the complaint to the local police department. An auxiliary police unit has been contacted, and a warning has been issued for other officers to be more “sensitive and mindful of their actions.”
Or you know, to be considerate human beings.
