On Wednesday, 17 January 2023, the Transport Minister of Malaysia, Anthony Loke, announced that seven traffic offences will be non-compoundable throughout the Chinese New Year festive season.
Motorists who commit these seven offences will no longer be allowed to just pay a fine, but will instead be referred to the courts.
- Cutting queue
- Overtaking on double lines
- Running the red light
- Driving over the speed limit
- Using mobile phones while driving
- Not wearing a seat belt or helmet
- Driving on the emergency lane
The seven major traffic offenses are cutting queue, overtaking on double lines, disobeying the red light signal, driving over the speed limit, use of mobile phones while driving, not wearing a seat belt or helmet and driving on the emergency lane.
There will be no compound issues for these offences. Offenders will be referred to court.
To ensure stricter enforcement this year, about 2,000 JPJ enforcement officers will be deployed this Chinese New Year to reduce accidents and deaths.
