In an incident which took place at Kerian District in Parit Buntar, Perak recently, a pair of motorcyclists were fined RM1,000 each for pulling down their masks while having a drink.
According to Sin Chew Daily, the two individuals had sent some of their friends to a shopping centre and were waiting by the roadside opposite the mall. The duo each bought two cups of drinks and lowered the face masks to their chins.
The news outlet further reported that they didn’t pull up their masks in time as they were putting their cups into the motorcycle box compartment. At this exact moment, the two men were approached by three individuals who accused them of not wearing face masks.
It is believed that the police officers were disguising themselves as normal folks in plainclothes, as they were not wearing their uniforms. However, they clarified that they were policemen, before instructing the aforementioned duo to get in the car and head to the Kerian District police headquarters.
Unfortunately, the motorcyclists ended up getting slapped with RM1,000 fines each after they were caught for allegedly not wearing their masks correctly.
