SENTUL : A lorry driver here has been issued a summons for wearing rugged jeans while driving, and the public isn’t too happy about it.
A photo of the summons, which cited ‘inappropriate wear’, has gone viral since it was posted earlier today, with over 2,000 shares in just 3 hours.
Netizens have condemned the police for issuing such a summons and accused officers of trying to conjure up a reason to collect bribes.
Some time last year in June, a lorry driver from Sarawak was issued a summons for wearing slippers while driving, of which the police then reasoned saying that “Wearing slippers while driving a vehicle can endanger other road users”, adding that “It was a lesson to the driver to respect the rules”.
The lorry driver, who was given the summon for wearing torn jeans, has been ordered to appear before the Jalan Duta Magistrate on the 21st of January 2017. – The Inscriber
