Video of lorry driver ‘bullying’ JPJ vehicle goes viral

jpj buli

A screenshot from the video showing the lorry driving past the JPJ vehicle even when it was instructed to stop by JPJ enforcement officers.

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 7, 2015:

A video of a lorry seemingly evading and taunting Road Transport Department (JPJ) officers is going viral on the Facebook social network, eliciting mixed responses from netizens.

According to the description, the almost 6-minute video entitled “JPJ kena buli!!!” (JPJ being bullied!!!) apparently took place at Simpang in Taiping, Perak. (The date is not known at the time of writing.)

The video, recorded by a third party, shows a JPJ four-wheel drive vehicle stopping the sand laden lorry on the road, only to have the heavy vehicle driver steer around the vehicle and make a run for it.

An officer can be seen coming out of the video to stop the lorry, before the lorry breaks free and a chase ensues.

The person who recorded the video also joins in the chase, weaving in and out of traffic, and can be heard cheering on for the lorry driver in Tamil.

There were times the JPJ vehicle tried to bring the lorry to a halt by slowing down right in front of it but the lorry driver pressed on undeterred.

The video then ends when the lorry makes a left turn into a slip road and immediately dump the sand onto the road, while the JPJ vehicle and its officers surround it.

GOOD NEWS AND BAD NEWS FROM THE JPJ.

THE GOOD NEWS? Free new licences if you lost yours in the flood.

Flood victims who lose or damage their car or motorcycle licences in floods can obtain new ones for free at Road Transport Department (JPJ) counters nationwide.

THE BAD NEWS? They have recruited 45,000 SPIES to watch all Malaysians.

JPJ Director-General Datuk Seri Ismail Ahmad says they have formed the JPJ Young Squad 1 to act as the eyes and ears of other enforcement agencies, namely JPJ, Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) and the police.

“To date, we have recruited 45,000 members for the squad nationwide.”

JPJ’S SYSTEM IS STILL DOWN AND THEY HAVE NO IDEA WHEN IT WILL COME BACK ON! JPJ Director-General said that the JPJ online system was expected to be up and running again soon.

Soon? Whenever it comes back on, that’s soon.

His explanation: It’s not JPJ’s fault.

JPJ director-general Datuk Seri Ismail Ahmad said the disruption was due to a construction work glitch.

He said work to lay some pipes had disrupted the cooling system of the department’s mainframe computer, which led to a system failure.

“The glitch also effected 35 government agencies and private companies in Cyberjaya and surrounding areas. I had a meeting with the construction company CEO over the matter,” he said, adding that the JPJ online system was expected to be up and running again soon.

JPJ’s system glitch irks many

Nationwide problem: A sign at the JPJ branch in Petaling Jaya informing the public that the system was offline.

PETALING JAYA: The nationwide malfunction of the Road Transport Department’s (JPJ) servers that started on Tuesday led to frayed nerves among many.

Trading company owner Simon Lian, 45, said he made several visits to the JPJ office in Petaling Jaya, but was not given a proper explanation as to when the system would resume.

“It is frustrating as the road tax for one of my company’s lorries has expired, and right now, I am clueless as to when I will be able to renew it,” he said, adding that not being able to drive that lorry had affected his business.

Architect N. Perumal, 57, was irritated and said that JPJ should have a proper back-up plan in case of a system malfunction.

Checks by The Star revealed that a notice was placed at the entrance of the JPJ office here informing the public of the system breakdown.

The notice said the reason for the “indefinite offline” that started around 4.30pm on Tuesday was due to the upgrading works around the main JPJ data centre in Cyberjaya.

When contacted, JPJ director-general Datuk Seri Ismail Ahmad said the disruption was due to a construction work glitch.

He said work to lay some pipes had disrupted the cooling system of the department’s mainframe computer, which led to a system failure.

RTD counter operations disrupted nationwide

Road Transport Department (RTD) counter transactions in all states have been disrupted since 4.30pm yesterday, as a result of problems at its data centre in Cyberjaya.

RTD in a statement today said as a result of development work around it, there was water leakage.

This  affected the supply of chilled water for cooling its mainframe computer system room, leading to a sudden rise in temperature.

RTD then had to stop operations for the time being to prevent bigger problems to the system. It apologised for the disruption.

Vehicle owners yet to comply with RTD’s new directive

KUALA LUMPUR: Many vehicle owners in the city have yet to comply with the Road Transport Department (RTD)’s directive of not using strobe, high intensity discharge (HID) headlamps and fancy registration number plates.

This was seen when RTD officers who conducted a joint enforcement operation with the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) and police between Oct 1 and Oct 28 issued 624 warning notices.

Effective Nov 1, the RTD will issue summonses to vehicle owners caught with these three offences.

Kuala Lumpur RTD director, Md Ziki A.Rahman advised all vehicle owners to comply with the law or face the consequences.

“For now we only issued warning notices so that vehicle owners can start complying to the directive,” he said, adding those who flout the law can be charged under the Road Transport Act 1987 where they could be fined up to RM2,000 or six months’ jail, or both for first offence or a fine of not exceeding RM4,000 or imprisonment of up to one year, or both, for subsequent offence.

New car window tint regulations deferred six months to May 1

PUTRAJAYA: The implementation of new car window tint regulations for rear windscreens and passenger windows has been deferred six months, to May 1, 2015, Road Transport Department (JPJ) director-general Datuk Seri Ismail Ahmad said.

Ismail said the new date was meant to give owners of imported vehicles ample time to replace the windscreens and windows.

“They have until April 30 to replace them,” he said here, Thursday.

http://www.thestar.com.my/News/Nation/2014/10/16/Window-tint-regulations-May-1/

New Tinting Rule: Postponed to May 1, 2015.

The new regulation on tinting for car windscreens and windows will be enforced beginning May 1, 2015.

PERMITTED visible light transmission (VLT)
1. Back windscreen: 30% (down from 50%): darker tint.
2. Back passenger windows: 30% (down from 50%): darker tint.

3. Front windscreen: 70% (unchanged).
4. Driver’s window: 50% (unchanged).
5. Front passenger window: 50% (unchanged).

http://www.thestar.com.my/News/Nation/2014/09/29/car-window-tint-nov-1/

According to industry operators, nine out of ten vehicles on the road today have exceeded the permitted levels, particularly the requirements for the front windscreens.

To avoid a summons, many vehicle owners will have to remove or replace the tint, which will involve money.

Will there be enough tint films available for the sudden huge demand?

THE NEW CURRICULUM BEGAN ON 1 AUGUST 2014: JPJ SETS MAXIMUM PRICES YOU CAN BE CHARGED.

From 1 September 2014, for the new Drivers’ Education Curriculum, the fees are:

1. RM350 for a B2 class licence
2. RM900 (B full class)
3. RM1,150 (D class-manual)
4. RM1,250 (D class-automatic).

The New Straits Times had previously reported that the current fee ranged from between RM350 and RM400 for a B2 class licence, RM600 to RM800 (B full class) and RM1,200 to RM1,400 (D class-manual).

5. The fees announced were not inclusive of transport costs. The transport cost will be charged at 50 sen per km. If the learner’s home is 30km from the school, it will cost him RM30 per session attended.

Malaysian Driving Institute Association president Mat Aris Bakar said that schools were allowed to impose additional costs depending on their services.

Mat Aris said a learner would have to come by the centre for classes and training for approximately 12 times and this usually meant having to pay RM360 for his additional transportation cost (of 30km distance).

PETALING JAYA: Thousands of learner drivers and motorcyclists are facing a major bump on the road before they can even start because of an acute shortage of the highway code books for ‘L’ licences under the new driving curriculum implemented on Aug 1.

Driving schools have an average of between 1,000 and 1,200 applicants for ‘L’ licences each month and the scarcity of books has delayed scheduled tests in about 200 driving schools across the country.

Malaysian Driving Institute Association president Mat Aris Bakar said the book contained a serial number for a learner driver to log in for an online test.

“If they do not finish the tests, they cannot proceed with practical training.

Sofea is one of the 120 students at the Safety Driving Centre who did not get the book within the scheduled time.

THE JPJ DRIVES UP THE COST OF LEARNING TO DRIVE WITH ITS NEW DRIVING CURRICULUM.

THE COST OF LEARNING TO DRIVE A CAR (D CLASS): RM1,350 (manual) and RM1,800 (automatic)

NST

KUALA LUMPUR: MOTORISTS may have to fork out between RM50 and RM400 more to get their driving licences when the new driving curriculum comes into effect.

The fee increase was expected to be between 15 and 30 per cent, depending on the location of the driving institutes.

The figure, which was proposed by driving institutes to the Road Transport Department (RTD) last week, was lower than the intended fee hike revealed by the New Straits Times earlier.

The proposed fees would see students charged RM450 for a B2 class licence, RM1,000 (B full class), RM1,350 (D class—manual) and RM1,800 (D class—automatic).

The current fee ranges from between RM350 and RM400 for a B2 class licence, RM600 to RM800 (B full class) and RM1,200 to RM1,400 (D class—manual).

However, it is learnt that several institutes had already increased their fees to almost double the current fee and are calling for a halt to the introduction of the new curriculum.

Beginning July 5, driving schools started increasing their fees by 100 per cent, ahead of the new driving curriculum scheduled to be implemented on Aug 1.

Driving schools seek 30pc hike

EXPECT THE COST OF LEARNING TO DRIVE TO GO UP BY DOUBLE FROM 1 AUGUST 2014!

For a manual driving licence, it will be RM1,200-RM1,600 but it could go as high as RM2,000.

For an automatic driving licence, it will be even highre but no price is stated as yet.

THE JPJ HAS A NEW DRIVING CURRICULUM FOR LEARNERS!

1. There won’t be theory workshops. 
2. All learning will be done on driving school circuits.
3. More emphasis will be placed on the three-point-turn, side parking, slope, S-course and crank-course for practical learning.
4. All learning will be on a one-to-one basis. There will be no group learning. The ratio of instructor to learners will thus be reduced from 1:20 to 1:13.

THE NEW DRIVING CURRICULUM MEANS HIGHER LEARNER FEES. DOUBLE, IN FACT!

Learners will have to pay more. Why?
1. More instructors will have to be employed
.
2. They will have to pay for new materials.
3. Learning hours are longer.

Malaysian Driving Institute Association president Mat Aris Bakar said, “The proposed fee will range from RM1,200 to RM1,600 for a manual driving licence. An automatic driving licence is expected to cost more, considering the new sedan cars schools need to purchase for learning purposes.”

E-TESTING TO BE INTRODUCED IN APRIL 2015

The JPJ will implement a new system. They think that this will get rid of corruption, especially the issuance of lesen terbang (illegally obtained licences). How? In E-testing, interaction between learner drivers or operators of driving institutions and RTD officials would be reduced.

RTD director-general Datuk Ismail Ahmad says that they will transform the testing system for learner drivers.

“Under the new system, the sensors, cameras and other components will be linked to the main mySikap system before a licence is issued.

“The testing will be fully automated. The results will be sent to a command centre, which will be monitored and endorsed by an RTD officer-in-charge,” he told the New Straits Times.

All driving institutions and schools are in the process of installing the infrastructure for learner drivers. They will pay for it themselves.

JPJ: All vehicle ownership transfers to require biometric confirmation from June 1

PUTRAJAYA: All transactions for vehicle ownership transfers can only be done via the biometric confirmation system effective June 1.

Road Transport Department (JPJ) director-general Datuk Seri Ismail Ahmad said the system had been introduced in stages from April 1.

“Earlier, we did not make it compulsory but voluntarily. However, all such transactions must use the biometric system from June 1,” he told reporters here, Friday.

He said both the registered and new owners did not have to be present at the same time at the counter to conduct biometric confirmation.

“The registered owner and new owner can go to any nearby JPJ counters separately on condition the confirmation is done in seven days,” he said.

Ismail said the new system would prevent a transfer of ownership without the knowledge of the owner and reduced the role of a third party.

Furthermore, he said from June 1, ownership transfers could be done online.

“However, the consumer must first visit an JPJ counter to get a pin number and make a biometric confirmation. The pin number can also be used for other transactions with the Department,” he added. – Bernama

CHANGES FROM 1 APRIL 2014

1 A new and improved driving school curriculum for motorcycles under 250cc. This will be implemented concurrently with the MyLesen programm to assist motorcyclists in obtaining licences.

2 The curriculum will be customised to suit the vehicle type, compared with the current “one-module-for-all” system, with customised training and test questions tailored to suit the vehicle type for which the candidate is applying a licence. If you are sitting for a test to obtain a D class driving licence, you will be specifically trained and evaluated on your car-driving proficiency.

3 Motorists applying for the automatic transmission car licence will be licensed to use only automatic cars.

4 However, a manual licence holder is allowed to operate both manual and automatic vehicles.

The new approach is part of the department’s overall effort to curb road accidents through education and awareness rather than solely through enforcement.

New driving curriculum next year to counter ‘bad attitude’ of Malaysian drivers

PUTRAJAYA: A new driving curriculum will be introduced at driving schools next year to teach Malaysian motorists proper road ethics and counter the “bad attitude” of drivers.

“We are in the midst of developing a new curriculum and module for driving schools which will be implemented in January 2014,” said Road Transport Department director-general Datuk Ismail Ahmad.

“The new curriculum will place emphasis on proper driving ethics and we hope it will bring about a positive impact in efforts to reduce road accidents,” he said.

He said Malaysian drivers were found to have poor driving ethics despite having undergone lessons and passing their driving tests.

“They say Malaysian drivers drive recklessly and are irresponsible and insensitive.

“Although many are capable drivers they are inconsiderate and tend to overtake other vehicles recklessly and even do it at the double lines,” he said.

THE DRIVER’S LICENCE FOR AUTOMATIC-TRANSMISSON VEHICLES WILL BE IMPLEMENTED IN AUGUST 2013

THREE IMPORTANT FACTS

1 The automatic transmission driving fees and driving lessons for automatic cars would be more expensive than manual cars as their price and maintenance costs were higher.

2 The switch to automatic transmission vehicles was initiated to enable more Malaysians, especially the older generation, to obtain a valid driving licence.

3 Those who have a valid licence to drive automatic cars will not be allowed to drive manual cars. However, those holding a licence to drive manual cars can drive automatic cars as well.

New driving license to be launch on July 15

KUALA LUMPUR (June 14, 2013): The Transport Ministry will be launching a High Security Driving License from July 15 onwards and will be implemented nationwide at all branches and offices of the Road Transport Department (RTD).

Acting Transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein said the new initiative was taken as the technology to make the previous license has been used since 1989, and is fast turning out of date.

“The old technology has made it such that it is easy to falsify a driver’s license or it gets faulty,” he said at a press conference after visiting the Federal Territories RTD office today.

He also said under the United Nation Conference on Road and Motor Transport, Geneva 1949 and 1968, the Malaysian driving license is recognised by over 150 countries, thus needing to add more security features to these licenses.

Some of these features include:
>> A pre-printed plastic card that has a unique lines that bears a specific security image,
>> Photos and driver’s information printed and protected with a layer of high secure hologram,
>> Thermal transfer technology printer with specific softwares,
>> Driving license to expand to credit card size,

Card holders are not required to provided a passport photo, instead, the department will retrieve these photos from the MyIdentity database that was developed by the National Registration Department and Malaysian Administrative Modernisation and Management Planning Unit (MAMPU).

It will also be printed in dual language so that it can be used abroad.

The high security driving license does not involve extra costs from the public. They will only be paying the current fees when renewing their licenses.

Driving licence expiry on birthdays next month

By LIM WEY WEN
wwen@thestar.com.my

KUALA LUMPUR: Motorists can have their driving licence expiry dates synchronised with their birthdays from mid-November.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha, who announced this yesterday, said the Cabinet had approved the move.

“In the past, there were many cases of motorists only realising their driving licences had expired when they were stopped by the police or after getting into an accident.

“Now they have no excuse to forget the expiry date anymore,” said Kong at a press conference at Wisma MCA yesterday.

Under the new initiative, motorists whose licences expire after mid-November will be able to extend the validity to cover the period in between their licence expiry date and their date of birth.

For example, if their licence expires in December 2011 and their birthday is in July, a one-year renewal of their licence will give them a new licence that is valid for a year and seven months, from December 2011 until July 2013.

After that, they will be required to renew their licence in July.

    * revving the engine

    * cutting in and cutting you off

    * performing threatening gestures

    * yelling through the window

    * giving chase

    * trying to run someone off the road.

    Non-conformity in traffic is seldom tolerated.

    I love to follow along with the convoy. I always try to join a group of cars. I don’t have to worry about speeding because everyone else is. I just go the same speed as the group. I don’t stick out, I blend in. I don’t like it when someone tries to break up the convoy so they can get ahead. So I close ranks to do my part to help maintain the integrity of the pack. I think other drivers feel the same as I do.
