LOS­ING SLEEP OVER MAT REMPIT

New Straits Times - - NEWS / FINDING SOLUTIONS -

RES­I­DENTS of Ta­man Bukit Emas, Se­nawang, Seremban, are hav­ing sleep­less nights due to the racket caused by mat rempit.

Their hous­ing area is lo­cated near the toll plaza of Se­nawang High­way, which has be­come an il­le­gal race track for the mo­tor­cy­clists.

The res­i­dents com­plained that mat rempit revved their en­gines and caused such a din as they raced up and down the high­way at night.

A res­i­dent, who wanted to be known only as Kelvin, said mat rempit usu­ally gath­ered around mid­night dur­ing week­ends and pub­lic hol­i­days.

“They gather in a huge crowd and race un­til 2am or 3am.

“It gets so noisy at times that the res­i­dents have sleep­less nights,” said Kevin, who has been liv­ing in the area for more than 20 years.

He said the res­i­dents had lodged sev­eral com­plaints with the po­lice.

“Although the po­lice carry out op­er­a­tions, mat rempit are back within a day or week to ter­rorise the neigh­bour­hood.”

ACTIONLINE:

Seremban po­lice chief As­sis­tant Com­mis­sioner Thiew Hock Poh said a raid on il­le­gal rac­ers was held last week.

“Based on the com­plaint lodged by the res­i­dents, I will col­lab­o­rate with the traf­fic po­lice to con­duct fre­quent op­er­a­tions in the area.

“I un­der­stand the con­cerns of the res­i­dents, es­pe­cially with the long fes­tive week­end loom­ing.”
