The Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) Penang contingent has suggested several measures and harsher punishments to be introduced so as to address the issues of illegal racing in our country.

These include additional procedures and harsher penalties under Section 8(1) of the Road Transport Act 1986 and adding specific laws on parents, guardians (of street thug offenders) and even spectators.

Revealing findings of its contingent-level strategic planning meeting with several department agencies to combat illegal racing-related issues at a press conference yesterday, the Penang police also called for a new law that allows action against workshops providing illegal modifications to vehicles.

Penang police chief Datuk Mohd Shuhaily Mohd Zain asserted,

“Our proposal is also to increase the rate of fines on motorcycle modifications and enact a law so that action can be taken on workshops that modify vehicles.”

“All proposals will be submitted to the higher authorities, namely policymakers in Putrajaya and then brought to Parliament to enforce so that strict action can be taken against mat rempit and street thugs.”


In a statement, Mohd Shuhaily added that since the establishment of a committee to combat illegal racing activities in Penang in July 2022, such activities have been on the downtrend.

The Penang police also collaborated with Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) in conducting a study on how to combat the illegal racing issue at the grassroots.
