A check by Majlis Perbandaran Kuala Langat (MPKL) found out that the man was fined for not using the OKU sticker issued by the Road Transport Department (JPJ) and the Selangor government.

The man used a different version of the OKU sticker with a blue background and an image of a wheelchair. Due to this, members of the public lodged a report because the sticker looked suspicious.

MPKL said there were two vehicles using the wrong OKU stickers on the front and back windshields. One of them also failed to write their number plate on the stickers.

MPKL explained that there have been instances where someone who wasn’t disabled bought the OKU vehicle sticker online so that they could park in disabled parking spots.

It’s our duty to take action against the vehicle (owner) to ensure disabled spaces aren’t abused and they are treated fairly.

MPKL said in a statement.

However, MPKL said the notice could be revoked if the affected individual can prove that they are registered as disabled with the Social Welfare Department (JKM). MPKL will also help them get the correct OKU stickers.

Based on MPKL’s statement, the Selangor government has standardised all of the official OKU vehicle stickers.

Members of the public can refer to the local authorities (PBT) in Selangor to apply for the official OKU vehicle stickers.
