Inter-state travel: Give up trying to sneak out of Selangor, say cops

PETALING JAYA (May 22): Don’t try embarking on inter-state travel out of Selangor as culprits will be caught, The Star reported state deputy police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Arjunaidi Mohamed saying.

“Every motorist leaving the state will be checked and those with no authorisation will be detained and issued with a compound before being turned back,” he warned.

“We are serious about no interstate travel,” reiterated Arjunaidi while inspecting the roadblock near the North-South Expressway Tanjung Malim exit yesterday

Arjunaidi also revealed that 50 motorists were told to made to turn back at the Tanjung Malim roadblock between 9am and 3pm yesterday.

“Even if motorists managed to sneak past the Selangor roadblocks, it does not mean they will have the same luck at roadblocks in other states.

“Therefore, don’t waste your time on interstate travel if you don’t have permission to do so,” he said.

The daily also reported that the number of vehicles turned back at the roadblocks has “gradually dropped” as motorists realise “that they will not be able to pass through without interstate travel approval”.
