What is so baffling is what were the grounds that she was found to be guilty of reckless driving. PDRM has a poster and warning, stating that basikal lajak is a reckless act and even the parents are punishable by law. (on PDRM’s Facebook) Clearly, the reckless parties are the basikal lajak riders.
Maybe JPJ should now include into the driving test a basikal lajak avoidance competency for all drivers?

Since many agreed the kids were in the wrong, how come there is no charges in the last 5 years?

Yes, offenders get pembelaan but abiding laws get jailed and fined.
