The Consumers Association of Penang (CAP) calls to attention the recent recommendation of the Director of the Road Safety Department (JKJR), Datuk Suret Singh, that school students in the Ampang area be given a discount of 50 per cent in fees to obtain driving licenses. This is irrelevant and antithetical to the objective of zero road accidents among youths.
Motorcyclists and pillion riders should only use Sirim certified crash helmets, said Consumers Association of Penang (CAP) president S. M. Mohamed Idris.
The Consumers Association of Penang (CAP) is increasingly worried about the substantial number of accidents involving cranes at construction sites in this country. Most of these cases are caused by non-compliance of basic safety guidelines as stipulated by the Department of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH).
