A lorry driver has been called up by the police for ramming into 10 vehicles while driving through a narrow road at Complex E, Putrajaya.
According to Kosmo, Putrajaya District Police Chief Assistant Commissioner A. Asmadi Abdul Aziz said the vehicle owners had lodged a report regarding the incident at the Putrajaya IPD.
He added that the case is being investigated under Section 42 of the Road Transport Act 1987 for driving recklessly and dangerously.
The video that went viral on social media showed a lorry squeezing its way through the street where vehicles are parked on both sides of the road.
Despite the road being narrow, the lorry driver showed no regard for the other vehicles and drive through the road, scratching all the vehicles in the process.
There’s another video that showed the amount of damage done to the vehicles that are parked there too.
Meanwhile, the Chief Government Security Office (CGSO) under the Prime Minister’s Department has also confirmed the incident.
Nonetheless, it was reported that the location of the incident has been gazetted as an area where vehicles are not allowed to be parked. Hence, vehicle owners cannot claim for any compensation.
“There is no claim for compensation that can be made by the victim involved as the area or route has been gazetted as an area where parking is not allowed.” he said.
Asmadi then said the police will conduct an operation at the location to prevent drivers from parking their vehicles by the roadside. This includes issuing summonses to those who do not comply.
