Mat Rempits – Polis passing the buck to JPJ and Parents

I went, “WTF!” after reading this. What do you think?

KUALA LUMPUR: After years of public agony, the authorities are finally going to hit the Mat Rempit where it hurts most — by seizing their motorcycles.

Police and the Road Transport Department (JPJ) are preparing to launch joint operations against the Mat Rempit in various locations.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan said this drastic move had to be taken as the Mat Rempit had become violent and brazen instead of just being a public nuisance.

He said he had met Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat recently and the latter agreed that traffic police and JPJ officers should conduct joint operations to clamp down on the speedsters, many of whom use illegally-modified machines.

“We have to come down hard on the Mat Rempit who have started to become involved in robberies, snatch thefts and are even attacking innocent road users.

The police have limited powers to act against these people but with the help of the JPJ, we can now go all out against them,’’ he added.

Musa said police would also go after the owners of the motorcycles if the riders caught were underage or did not possess valid licences. He said the registered owner of the machine would also be issued with a summons if the rider did not have a valid licence.

“Parents must be more responsible and should not allow their underage children to drive cars or ride motorcycles,’’ he added.

First of all…baru sekarang nak sedar ke? What, with all the snatch theft cases, illegal races and road assaults, you still can see the gravity of the situation? You guys blind or what?!

Here’s the thing…you take away the Rempit’s bike then what’s going to happen? What’s going to happen is the Rempits are just going to steal other people’s bike, so what’s the point? It’s not going to change anything.

Fact of the matter is, the Polis and authorities are just horsing around – at least from where I’m seeing it anyway lah.

Every weekend without fail the stretch of NKVE between Damansara and KL becomes a makeshift racing circuit for these Rempits. Buzzing up and down the highway with thier noisy mopeds…bunyi macam ribut, pergi macam siput.

This is a regular thing every Saturday, I know this because I can hear and see them from my balcony and once in a while I’d hope that I would hear Polis sirens blaring chasing down the Rempits American cops style like this one here.

At least show these people the Polis mean business lah. Coming down hard, or whatever you want to call it.

But of all the weekends this has happened, not once I see the Polis chasing down the Rempits.

I wonder what the Evo Xs are for?

Some more, IGP Musa Hassan can say that the Polis have limited powers to act against the Rempits. Limited powers? OMG!

And here’s another thing, parents who let thier kids ride motorcycles and drive cars really don’t give a rats ass what else their kids are doing. So like it or not Polis, you got to sapu the sampah lah.

That’s the way I see it anyways.

    To tell you the truth…I think the Polis are clueless as to how and when to catch a mat-rempit. I reckon they are too busy polishing after their Evo X ..hahahahaha

    Once upon a time, they are highly respected by some parties and even gave the name Mat Cemerlang. Now they admit they are a nuisance and say they can’t do much about it.

    Taking the bikes from them are no use. Most probably the bikes isn’t theirs in the first place.

    What we need is a Mat Rempit Vigilante who drives a hummer. If the police can’t even catch motorcyclist for not switching on their headlamps or remove their mirrors, we surely can’t expect them to eliminate such menance.
