The Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) has revealed that peer pressure is among the reasons as to why Malaysian youths get involved in illegal racing and ‘mat rempit’ activities. This is among the findings of a 3-year long research conducted by Seri Alam police deputy chief DSP Dr Mohd Roslan Mohd Tahir on illegal racing.

As reported by Bernama, Roslan said that the research involved a total of 300 mat rempits aged between 16 and 27 from Johor Bahru, Seri Alam, Kulai, Skudai and Iskandar Puteri in Johor. All of them were approached and interviewed for the purpose of the research.

He asserted,

“All this while, everyone has been pointing fingers, looking for someone to blame (for mat rempit issues). Some even blame the government, family and society.”

“Through the research, it was found that it’s not the fault of the government, the enforcement or the family because they got involved at their own will and 90 per cent is due to peer pressure,”

The Seri Alam police deputy chief further elaborated that the issues of mat rempit can be dealt with if the government through certain bodies continues to hold programmes for youths, including awareness campaigns. Furthermore, he also urged parents to play a role by giving advice to their children.
