Every now and then, there would be incidents of police officers allegedly misusing their powers to get away with dangerous acts while on the road.
A netizen recently took to TikTok to air his displeasure with a driver who drove at breakneck speed and displayed his police ID along the Duta-Ulu Klang Expressway (DUKE) Highway.
Flashes police ID while driving recklessly along DUKE Highway
In the 1-minute long video, it began with the man driving down the DUKE Highway at a high speed in a silver Honda City.
As he tried to cut into the OP’s lane, he made a child who was inside the car with him to flash what seemed to be a police ID in order to have the OP make way for him.
For the next several seconds, both drivers were engaged in a bout of trying to outrace the other, which posed a risk to them.
Towards the end of the clip, the driver of the Honda City is seen pointing and yelling something inaudible towards the OP, presumably angry at him for not giving way.

Honda City driver was an auxiliary policeman
In a statement by Wangsa Maju district police chief Superintendent Ashari Abu Samah, he said a police report was lodged over the incident yesterday (May 1), where the victim claimed that the Honda City driver had driven in an erratic manner.
In a surprising twist however, it turned out that the Honda City driver was actually an auxiliary police officer at a bank who also lodged a police report at the Ampang Jaya District Police Headquarters (IPD).
According to the driver, he claimed that the victim had obstructed his path without flashing his signal light to change lanes. As such, he flashed his police ID in an attempt to make the victim come to a stop.
“The case has since been classified as Refer to Magistrate (RKM) and it will be referred to the relevant auxiliary police agency for further action,” he said.
