SEMPORNA, (Jan 28 ) — Semporna police has set up two traffic enforcement groups for road block operations and accident prevention patrols to increase the effectiveness of ‘Ops Selamat 4’ in conjunction with the Chinese New Year celebration this weekend.
Semporna district traffic/public order division chief, Insp Faezel Jamaluddin said it was also to reduce accident rates in and around the district.
“The road blocks and patrols will focus on locations where accidents frequently occur, including jalan Semporna-Tawau dan Semporna-Kunak besides conducting patrols at housing estates to reduce crimes like house-breaking cases,” he told Bernama here today.
He said the police would also distribute visit forms to homes that would be left vacant during the holidays to facilitate easier patrolling duties.
Meanwhile, Faezel said no accident had been reported in Semporna up till today since Op Selamat 4 was launched last Thursday.
“As such road users are advised to be constantly vigilant and observe the speed limit regulation, wear safety belt and ensure their vehicle are always in good condition,” he added.– BERNAMA
