SEREMBAN: The country may see the reintroduction  of Op Warta, following failure of various  enforcement agencies in curbing traffic  offenders during the Hari Raya holidays.

The nationwide operation, which has been  conducted several times before, will see po licemen knocking on doors of those who have  yet to settle their compound fines.

Inspector-General of police Tan Sri Khalid  Abu Bakar admitted yesterday he was dis appointed with the initial report on the recent  Op Selamat, which was carried out from  August 1   until Thursday. He feels a  more drastic action  needed to be taken.

He said road crash-related death rates shot  up during the festive season, despite a slight  drop in the number of accidents.

"There must be something that can be done.  A more appropriate approach is to launch a  comprehensive enforcement and not just  monitoring.

“The way to change the attitude of our road  users  is to ‘hit at their pockets’ (by proactively  collecting compound fines),” he said after at tending a programme in Kampung Gebok,  Mantin, here, yesterday.

Khalid said with a more rigorous approach,  traffic offenders may realise that it was their  behaviour that caused accidents and not other  factors, such as road engineering.

He said one of the first approaches may be  for police to launch Op Warta again.

However, he said, the final decision will only  be made after the Op Selamat report is as sessed, within the next few days.

“We will hold discussions with the other officers from Bukit Aman to get their feedback on this.”
