BMW driver high on police watch list

KUALA LUMPUR - The driver of a white BMW, implicated in an alleged hit-and-run video involving a motorcyclist, is high on police wanted list for traffic offences.

Police sources said the 28-year-old man, who was caught on a video that has since viral on the Internet, has four arrest warrants issued against him and 23 unpaid traffic summonses.

The man lodged a report on the accident at the Jalan Bandar traffic police station on Tuesday, a day after the incident.

However, it is unclear why he was not taken into police custody, despite being on the wanted list.

The man, a retail outlet supervisor from Sentul, is wanted fo running red lights (four cases), disregarding traffic signs (three), failure to report an accident within 24 hours, using a cellular phone while driving and speeding.

"There are also summonses for overtaking at double lines, driving in the emergency lane as well as driving without a valid road tax and insurance," sources close to the case told the New Straits Times.

Queries to another source in the Road Transport Department revealed that the RTD had issued him with two summonses for driving without a valid license and for driving a vehicle without a valid insurance policy.
