Four “Superman”, including two Superboy (minors), pleaded guilty at the Kuala Berang Magistrates’ Court on a charge of dangerous driving at the East Coast Highway 2 (LPT2) few weeks back.
The accused, Muhammad Zamri Zahari, 29, and Mohamad Shahril Izwan Saidenar, 25, along with two of their friends aged 18 and 19 made the confession after the charge was read before Magistrate Engku Nurul Ain Engku Muda.
According to the charges read separately, they were charged with reckless and dangerous motorcycles ranging from Kilometer (KM) 420 to KM 411 LPT2 towards Telemong-Bukit Besi, 11.49am on June 19.
Engku Nurul Ain then sentenced him to seven days’ jail on Muhammad Zamri and Mohamad Shahril Izwan. They were also fined RM5,000 or three months in jail for failing to pay the fine.
The two were also disqualified from holding or obtaining a driver’s license for two years.
Meanwhile, Engku Nurul Ain allowed two underage bail of RM3,000 and RM4,000 with one surety. He set July 27 as the date for the case to be-recited pending the report of the accused.
All the accused were charged under Section 42 (1) of the Road Transport Act 1987, upon conviction of a maximum fine of five years and a fine of not less than RM5,000 and not more than RM15,000.
The prosecution is being handled by Assistant Prosecuting Officer Superintendent Mr. Rosnah Tuan Husain.Earlier, reported that a group of men were riding a motorcycle from Kelantan to Kuala Berang to enjoy a meal when they were arrested for ‘Superman’ action.
The dangerous action was discovered by members of the Terengganu Police Investigation and Enforcement Department (JSPT) while conducting a Road Operation Ops at the Gemuroh Toll Plaza, LPT2 at noon.
In the comics “Superman” always safes the day and getting people out of trouble, but in Malaysia, the “Superman” act will always get in to trouble with the law. So beware future Supermans!
