Get busted for reckless driving or street racing in most countries and the worst punishment you’re likely to endure is to foot an expensive fine, possibly do a driver-safety course or lose your license or car for several months. In some areas, such as Manchester in the UK or California, authorities will even crush your car if you continue to bait the law but in Malaysia they’ve taken it one step further and are planning to cane repeat offenders.

Under a new proposal, first time offenders will face a 5,000 ringgit (US$1,597) fine and a maximum five-year jail sentence as well as a three-year suspension, The Star daily reported.

Get caught a second time and the minimum sentence is ten years in the slammer, three strokes of a cane, and a 10,000 ringgit (US$3,178) fine.

According to the source, the major culprits are not car drivers but owners of highly-modified motorbikes known locally as ‘Mat Rempits.’ And it won’t just be the racers that will be penalized. Police plan to also target the organizers of such races as well as frequent visitors.
