PENANG (May 19): Penang folk have been captured on video literally racing over each other to enter the Batu Uban Road Transport Department (RTD) as soon as its main gates opened yesterday. JPJ offices in the country resumed full operations for all services yesterday (May 18) following the easing of the Movement Control Order (MCO) into a Conditional MCO.
In the 55-second video posted on Penang Kini Facebook page today, some who just arrived on motorcycles, quickly parked their vehicles to join the rushing crowd of people who apparently were scrambling to get a queue number for the day. Social distancing was obviously thrown out the window.
One man was even seen taking a fall on the road as he ran towards the building after quickly parking his motorbike.
“I thought it was a zombie movie,” said one comment on the video.
RTD Director-General Datuk Seri Shaharuddin Khalid advised motorists on Monday to take their time in renewing expired road tax and driving licences.
Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong had also announced that the public could still drive with expired Motor Vehicle Licence (MVL) or driver’s licence during the MCO period, as long as the vehicle’s insurance is still valid.
