KUALA LUMPUR: Official government vehicles will not be summoned if they are driven at speeds exceeding the maximum allowed while going for official government functions, said Deputy Home Minister Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed.
He said if there was a need for the official government cars to move fast for official government functions, the matter could be informed to the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM).
“There are exceptions to the rule. Sometimes if we have to hurry up for a function, we speed…. We try to follow the traffic rule but it can be excused for official functions,” he told reporters at the Parliament lobby, here today.
However, he said if the summons is issued in the personal capacity of the driver or owner of a private car, then the individual must settle the summons personally.
“If there is a summons on me for speeding, then I pay personally,” he said.
