Penang deputy police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Fisol Salleh said parents of illegal motorcycle racers under the age of 18 can end up with two years' jail, a fine of up to RM5,000, or both.

This could happen once the police applies to impose these penalties against negligent parents under Section 33 of the Child Act 2001 in order to hold parents accountable when their underaged children end up as illegal racers.
