The Road Transport Department’s (JPJ) new director-general, Datuk Shaharuddin Khalid said he would review the department’s systems and procedures to determine if it is inconveniencing the rakyat. According to a report by Bernama, the former head of Legal Advisory Office of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) seeks a rebrand for the JPJ, and aims to improve its administrative practices.

Shaharuddin also plans to raise JPJ’s level of performance and mold it into an excellent and top-notch road transport enforcement body in the ASEAN region. “This does not mean that the department was problematic. We (JPJ) are good and we want to bring ourselves higher,” he clarified.

With Shaharuddin at the helm, JPJ will also be working more with related government bodies like the police force and other local authorities. Thoughts, anyone?
