A local university has stated that anyone in a car with a member of the opposite sex can be fined RM30.

According to Sin Chew, citing a guideline on car registration posted by netizens on social media, the institution is a public university in Kedah.

The ruling, which is said to be issued by the university’s security department, will not apply if the occupants are married couples.

The guideline reads: I understand and agree that the university reserves the right to impose a penalty amount of RM30. If the vehicle is used to carry members of the opposite sex (unmarried), the vehicle registration certificate can be cancelled.

The issue has caused heated discussions among netizens.

Netizens said the rule doesn’t make sense as people in the car could be siblings.

Some netizens ridiculed that it makes homosexuality safer. 

At the same time, others said universities are supposed to produce students who can think and be rational.

Yet, in this case, they are not even allowed to share a car.

Some said the rule might be due to a recent incident of public indecency involving a couple in a red Axia.
