KOTA KINABALU: City police advised those going back to their hometown for the festive holidays not to inform their whereabouts in social media so as to prevent break-ins.

Acting City Police Chief Supt George Abd Rakman (pic) said they must not upload their status and information of their destinations in Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and WhatsApp, among others.

Doing this, he said, will provide opportunities to potential perpetrators to break into their houses during the holidays.

In light of this, George also reminded the public to take precaution by filling up “balik kampong” forms at nearby police station to inform the police and request for patrol at their respective residents, a week before leaving their homes.

“People should send their vehicles at any nearby workshop for inspection to ensure the vehicle is in good condition and has no mechanical problems including the engine, tire, and meter lamp, among others, to avoid any dangerous complication while driving. 

“Those who travel a long journey to their hometown, the driver should have enough rest, and not take any medicines that can cause drowsiness,” he said, when contacted. 

George said the motorists should comply with traffic regulation when driving to their hometown and to be cautions when overtaking other vehicles on the road.

In addition, he said all motorists should be extra careful when driving during rainy days.
