JPJ said information from the Land Public Transport Agency (APAD) showed only 402 of the 5,000 vehicles actively using the Maxim app had EVP.

Certain company documents and equipment such as computers, billboards, banners and flags were also seized and sealed for investigation under Section 222 of the APAD 2010, it said.

“Companies wishing to conduct the business of e-hailing and providing EHO systems to e-hailing vehicle drivers must be registered and licensed under APAD or the Commercial Vehicles Licensing Board (LPKP),” it said.

JPJ advised e-hailing vehicle passengers to ensure the app they are using is registered and licensed by checking with the APAD/LPKP portals.

“This is to ensure that passengers have insurance coverage in the event of road accidents while using the service,” she added. -Bernama Maxim operator arrested for violating EPP rules
