KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): The Kuala Lumpur Road Transport Department (JPJ) has created history by including women in its Motorcycle Enforcement Unit (UPB), a first for the department nationwide. "The UPB only had men so far, but now the JPJ has opened opportunities for female members to join. It also proves that women are just as competent in operating big bikes,” she told reporters after the 73rd Kuala Lumpur JPJ Day celebrations here Wednesday (April 17). Meanwhile, Ismail said that having the three women in the unit was to provide exposure to them. "It was an idea that came up early this year and I challenge women to join the UPB because they can do it,” he said.
