No Law

Malaysia is supposed to be run by the rule of Law. Not the rule of the Jungle.

Hell, even the people that are paid to enforce the rule of Law break those very same rules.

A very disappointed reader, Loke W, sent me these photos.

These were taken along Jalan Raja Laut today, 5 October 2006, between 9.30 and 11.30 a.m.

Jalan Raja Laut also happens to be Kuala Lumpur City Hall.

There is no Law in KL.

What bus stop?

There is no Law.

What Law?

No law.

Proud to be DBKL!

See the Jalur Gemilang? Get out of my way you mofo.

Blatant disregard of the law.

My car is bigger than yours.

I work for the government. Cekap bersih mesra.

Write me saman I dare you.

These vehicles, with the DBKL colours and logos splashed all over them were seen and photographed parking illegally at a bus stop and bus lane:

WNN 5190
WJX 7170
WLT 815
WMP 643
WNP 1859

Datuk Bandar, what are you doing?

Meanwhile, when I was passing Jalan Bangsar at around 6 something, a motorcade with police outriders, with the VIP car numbered ACS 1 (I think) rushed his/her way through traffic.

Yes, this VIP is definitely engaged with more important matters than the rest of us earthly scum (a.k.a. the Rakyat Jelata). Like berbuka puasa at Shangri-La perhaps?
Third world mentality. Third world government. Third world politicians.


DBKL says this and this:

Tarikh : 4 Mac 2005

Polis Trafik Kuala Lumpur dengan kerjasama Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur akan mula menguatkuasakan peraturan larangan penggunaan lorong bas / teksi oleh kenderaan persendirian pada 7 Mac 2005 (Isnin).

Peraturan larangan penggunaan lorong bas / teksi kepada kenderaan persendirian ini telah diwartakan sejak tahun 1998 di bawah Akta Pengangkutan Jalan 1987 (Pindaan 1988). Ini adalah bagi melancarkan pergerakan kenderaan awam terutama bas dan teksi di pusat bandar. Sehubungan dengan itu, kenderaan persendirian adalah dilarang menggunakan laluan tersebut mulai jam 6.00 pagi hingga 8.00 malam setiap hari bekerja kecuali hari Ahad dan Cuti Am.

Kuala Lumpur Traffic Police and City Hall Enforcement Officers will be on duty on a regular basis to enforce the regulations pertaining to restriction of private vehicles utilizing the dedicated bus lanes in the city from 7th March 2005.

The law pertaining to bus lanes has been gazetted since 1998 to facilitate the movement of buses in the city. The general public, particularly vehicles drivers should comply with the bylaw Road Transport Act 1987 (Amendment 1998). Private vehicles are not permitted to use the bus lanes between 6.00 am till 8.00 pm everyday except on Sundays and public holidays.

Bilakah masa dan hari yang dibenarkan kepada orang awam untuk menggunakan lorong bas?

Hari-hari biasa pada jam 8.00 malam hingga 6.00 pagi.
Hari minggu - sebarang waktu.
Hari Pelepasan Am - sebarang waktu.
Kadar kompaun yang dikenakan kepada pesalah yang menggunakan lorong bas ialah RM300.00.

Of course. DBKL is not "orang awam" and not "kenderaan persendirian".

My Bahasa sucks, but I think the word is munafik.
