Parents Of Student Injured In RTD Roadblock To Book

KANGAR, Jan 18 (Bernama) :-

The parents of a student who was injured in an attempt to dodge a roadblock mounted by the Road Transport Department (RTD) yesterday, will be summoned to a police station to have their statements recorded.

Kangar OCPD Supt Yusof Md Diah said the parents would be summoned as soon as possible as it was an offence to allow their son to ride a motorcycle to school without licence.

The police and RTD could take action on the parents and their son, he told reporters after accompanying Perlis Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim to visit the 16-year-old Muhammad Taufik Meh at the Tuanku Fauziah Hospital, here Wednesday.

The Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Syed Sirajuddin student fell off his motorcycle after a metal chair was thrown at him while trying to evade the RTD roadblock at Km 8 of the Kangar-Arau road.

He did not have a motorcycle licence and wear a crash helmet.

Shahidan said a doctor informed him that the student's head injury was not serious and he might be discharged from the hospital today.

The incident happened when Muhammad Taufik was riding home to Kampung Belat Raja in Tambun Tulang, about 10km from the school, to fetch his mother, Norhalita Abdullah, to arrange his school transfer.

Several people who witnessed the incident, took the law into their own hands by assaulting two RTD personnel on duty for allegedly throwing the chair at the student.

Yusof said the police had recorded statements from the RTD personnel involved and several witnesses. A discussion had also been held with Perlis RTD Director Zahari Awang Senik, he said.

Villagers involved in the attack on the RTD personnel were being identified, he said.

Zahari, who was present at the press conference, said the RTD would leave it to the police to investigate the incident.

He said the two enforcement personnel who were attacked, had returned to work as usual but action might be taken against them if it was true that they had acted excessively in trying to catch the student who had flouted traffic laws.

The RTD might also slap summonses on the student, he said.

Meanwhile, Shahidan said the state government, through the Perlis Education Department, would arrange for the student to be transferred to a school near his home.

The student would also be given a bicycle and monthly cash aid, and offered hostel accommodation so that he need not ride a motorcycle to school, he said.

He said he did not want to take sides on the incident.

Shahidan said parents should not let their children ride motorcyles to school without licence.

At the same time, RTD personnel should not act excessively in enforcing the law,

He also advised villagers not to take law into their own hands.

This is not the way to reward a student who had broken Traffic Rules & Regulation, especially riding a bike without Driving licence, Insurance & without wearing a helmet. Is this how the Politician educate student to obey law & order !!!

As much I would like to see that the boy pays for his traffic offences... I find it disgusting in the manner the RTD officers discharged their duties...

For crying out loud, they could have taken down the number and traced that motorbike... why throw a metal chair :eek: What if the boy lost control of that bike and killed an innocent bystander... another kid! Then what....

Another statement and apology " So sorry but.... sudah takdir (fated)!"

2 wrongs make a right? That's clearly the case here. Awarding the students with "a bicycle and monthly cash aid" is encouraging more of this to happen.

Just imagine if the RTD officers are allowed to carry handguns.... :eek:

19-01-2006, 11:22 AM
what if this happens... A boy without license & without helmet riding motorcycle . I was driving a car overtaking the motorcycle, but suddenly the motorcycle lost control crashed into my car & the boy died. Nobody witnessed the whole accident, are they going to protect the motorcyclist and charge me for murder????

Instead of punish the officer who throw a chair causing the accident, the state govertment choose to cover it up by buying bicycle and offer cash aid to the boy.

Both the RTD and the student and his parents are wrong in this matter. What irk me the most is the attitude of MB Shahidan who instaed of ticking off the student and his parents reward them with a bicycle, cash aid and hostel stay. I agree with the hostel stay but could not understand what the bicycle and cash aid has anything to solve the present problem. This remind me of his similar hairbrain action with the NS defaulter .

sigh... most of the time i feel RTD/JPJ is wrong (bribes, false charges and etc...) but this time around i support the officer who threw the chair (maybe part of his action).

See we have loads of problems with youths who drive motorcycles in an inconsiderate manner, have you seen kids ridding on a motorcyle stunt called "superman"; illegal motorcycle racing; speeding in a residential area (with loud emission sounds, modified engines) and so forth.

By comparison to motor vehicles its is much easier for motorcycles to evade JPJ/RTD road blocks. Not to mention kill or injure an RTD/JPJ personnel. Furthermore, this kid doesn't even have a license and his actions are totally against the law and his rewarded??? It's like robbing a bank, whilst in the midst of it the robber got shot by the security guard. Later the robber while in court sues the security guard saying that he is liable for shotting him?

Can we not say that the state government acted out of compassion?

19-01-2006, 02:20 PM
should be a court hearing on this matter, not state government being compassionate. Both RTD/JPJ and this kid should be taken to task, all aids should be taken back because its indirect effect is "we on behalf of the gov are really sorry for what happened."

finally i am able to login back to this forum after some ppl when and screw up the setting of the internet server..;)

on the case, we do not know what is the actually situation there. what trigger the RTD officer to throw the chair. as far as we know that the newspaper sometimes like to add pepper and salt to their story.

so far the RTD officer did not related their side of story and now the media seems like siding the kid. And also want to give the kid bicycle and transfer him to a school nearby. This will send out a wrong message. Then we can see, a lot of ppl will evade roadblocks hoping to get something off from the government.

Welcome back Alex. You are darn right. I am looking forward to a police road block where I will plough into them and await them to draw out their guns and shoot me. I am hoping to get from Datuk Noh Omar a 7 days/6 nights all expense paid holiday at the Maldives to recupurate that is if these cops can't shoot straight. If not, it will be RIP forever lah.
