Malaysians have a long-standing issue with VIP escorts, with many voicing out the issues it causes. Among them were forcing ambulances to make way for them despite saving lives is the utmost importance.

Recently, a netizen has taken to social media to complain about her vehicle being hit by a police vehicle in front of a mall during an escort. In the video, she said that the officer had signalled her to move her car so that the VIP pass through.

However, considering that it was a congested street and the traffic light was red, she had no where to move.

“I wanted to move out of their way, but as you can see, there is an Estima and there are other cars, all the roads are congested. I tried to move out of their way but I couldn’t move,” she said.

However, the police officer got impatient and moved forward, hitting her car in the way. Despite the collision, the officer did not get down from his vehicle to discuss the situation nor apologise, but kept driving on.

“I feel like it’s unfair. The police can hit people’s cars. If the people hit a police car, the people would get it,” she said.

Following the incident, the police have received 2 reports in regards to the accident between the netizen and the police officer that was escorting VIPs in front of a shopping mall in Kuala Lumpur.

According to Harian Metro, the head of the Kuala Lumpur Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department (JSPT) Assistant Commissioner Sarifudin Mohd Salleh shared that both drivers have come forward to lodge a police report.

“Further investigations into the case are underway. We request the cooperation of witnesses who saw the incident to come to the Kuala Lumpur Traffic Police Station to assist in the investigation,”

“People with information can also contact the Jalan Tun H S Lee Traffic Police Station at 03-2071 9999 or the JSPT Kuala Lumpur Hotline at 03-20260267/69 or any nearby police station,” he said.
