PDRM: Marshalls Have No Powers to Stop Traffic
The Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) today issued the following statement regarding “traffic marshalls”:
All escorts or marshalls are NOT ALLOWED to control traffic. The use of marshall in any competition, convoy or programme must be in the presence of traffic police.
The public or road users can disregard orders from these marshalls if they perform traffic duties such as directing to give way, stopping vehicles at crossroads, diverting your vehicles and more.
