Penang: Useful SOS contact

My sis got into trouble recently, car accident la, nothing serious but when it happened, we were all caught by surprise and don’t really know what is needed to be done. Where should we lodge our police report? At which district? Is it a must to tow our car to the police station? As we’re not always involved in this situation, we were given a runaround, wasting a lot of time along the way. I called one police hotline and was told that you just need to lodge a report at the nearest police station. But once we arrived there, we were told to go to another police station instead to lodge the report. But after that, we were told that although we have already met the requirement to lodge a report within 24hrs, we still have to go back to the police station district where the accident happened, all in all, visited 3 police station. So i think it’s good to keep a list of useful contacts and call to clarify when the need arises. Who knows?

  1. this system is stupid.. police stations gotta be integrated and accept reports regardless of where!!!

  2. actually i thought it’s already integrated…but then dunno why…maybe those lazy bumps at the police station, they don’t wanna take up the case and just refer and refer and refer around…
