Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia or simply SPM is a huge deal for secondary school students in Malaysia. Students will spend hours dedicating themselves to their studies in order to get the best results they can get.
The day you’re done with your SPM exams is definitely a day to remember. A day where you celebrate your freedom to do whatever it is you want before you move on to the next step of adulthood. However, try not to go overboard like this group of students.
TikTok user @akubudakkluang posted a video on his account showing a group of secondary school students riding their motorcycles in convoys and being chased by the authorities. The incident took place in Jalan Lingkaran Tengah, Kluang. The students are believed to have just finished their SPM exams and this was apparently their way of celebrating.
The TikTok video went viral and has since gained 130.7k views, 7472 likes and 210 comments. In the video, other than the students riding their motorcycles in a large group, we can also see them riding dangerously on the road. Police cars were seen chasing them down after receiving complaints from the public.
Netizens gave their comments on the viral video with some jokingly welcoming the students being chased by police to the real world. A few commented that the students should enjoy their freedom while they can before receiving a letter and a fine from Polis Diraja Malaysia (PDRM).
According to District Deputy Chief of Police, Deputy Superintendent Abdul Razak Abdullah Sani , the viral TikTok video by @akubudakkluang helped the authorities to become aware of the situation which prompted immediate action.
The police were able to identify some of the students involved in the dangerous act and further investigation will be conducted. Let’s hope that these student will not get into any more trouble with the law in the future. That would make university and job applications even more difficult.
