A 28-year-old man from Penang was arrested after he posted a video of him speeding along the Penang Bridge on his Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R at over 200kph and endangering other motorists with his reckless driving.
According to The Star, the man, who is a nurse at a private hospital, was arrested at his home at the Rifle Range flats in Ayer Itam at 5.52pm on Tuesday (21 April).
The north-east Penang police district headquarters said the police tracked him down after the video went viral on Facebook.
“During the incident at 1.30pm on Friday (April 17), the suspect took only two minutes and 10 seconds to cross the bridge on his motorcycle,” the statement said.
“In the video recorded using a dashcam, it showed the motorcycle reached speeds exceeding 300kph.”
“The video also showed the motorcycle being ridden recklessly and endangering other motorists as it overtook them on the bridge.”
The suspect, who is out on bail, will be charged in court on 7 May under Section 42(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987 for reckless and dangerous driving. If convicted, he could face a maximum of five years in prison and a fine of minimum RM5,000 and maximum RM15,000.
If you post stuff like this that could get you in trouble on Facebook, don’t think the police aren’t watching. They will take action and you will pay the price for it.
