Doesn't anyone respect the law anymore?

Are Malaysians becoming bolder to the extent that they can even hurt people assigned to enforce the law and keep the peace?

Pictures have emerged on social media of a badly injured traffic cop in Penang who was allegedly knocked down by the driver of a multi-purpose vehicle recently.

The incident happened on the Penang bridge and is said to have triggered when the cop tried to stop the Toyota Avanza after noticing that the driver was not wearing his or her seatbelt. 

Details are sketchy but according to the information on Facebook, the panicky driver then knocked down the cop and allegedly fled, but this has not been confirmed. 

It is also not clear whether the driver had accidentally knocked him down in panic or had done it intentionally in a bid to escape.   

Netizens are speculating that if it is the latter, then the driver may have been on the police wanted list or carrying something illegal in the van. 

Guess we will have to wait for this case to be updated to know what really happened. 

To the traffic policeman, keep up the good job and get well soon.
