The Road Transport Department (JPJ) has proposed for questions on ethics to be included in the written test for those applying for a driving licence, in addition to the existing rules and regulations test.
The suggestion made by Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Abdul Rahim Bakri, would test candidates on their understanding of road safety regulations, as well as their ethics as motorists.
“Education and a test ethics will instil awareness in them to become more tolerant and law-abiding motorists,” he said in a statement here today.
Abdul Rahim said this was an important aspect because a large number of accidents are caused by the the driver’s attitude, such as impatience, speeding and lack of discipline while driving.
The deputy minister also proposed that the JPJ produce a video on horrifying road accidents and good driving techniques to practice.
He added that the video must be used as teaching material in driving courses.
