Accidents occur randomly along most roads but statistics show they are less random along highway networks and are often clustered at certain stretches classified as hazardous locations or black spots.
Many factors accident happen in
Hardcore traffic offenders would think that there would be further relaxation of rules. Chan should not be surprised at the police’s actions as the Internal Security and Public Order Director Commissioner Datuk Mustafa Abdullah’s had said that they were not answerable to the ministry and had the powers to reduce traffic fines if necessary.
As fines for serious non-compoundable offences such as fatal accidents, drunk or dangerous driving and illegal racing remain unchanged, there is no reason for Chan to behave petulantly and pout just because he was not consulted. In the larger public interest he should demand instead that the police refund those who had paid earlier and therefore missed out on the lower traffic fines. And to improve road safety increase the list of non-compoundable offences especially those responsible for road accidents causing injury or death.
