“We do this raid because many young people use vehicles that do not comply with standards,” said the Kediri Police Chief of Traffic, Thursday (18/3/2021).
AKP Arpan revealed that the raid was carried out by many residents complaining about the use of brong exhaust. Road users, especially local residents, are disturbed by the number of young people who modify their vehicles with brong exhausts.
