INTRODUCTION

I, student of OUM had given an assignment regarding the violent by “Mat Rempit” that made the headline in news recently in our country. This assignment has given me opportunity to look over the main root for these problems. This assignment will cover the cause and also the recommendation to overcome the problems. News paper, journal, web, bulletin, peer and family opinion is the main sources for this assignment. By the end of this report, at least the readers can analyze what makes “Mat Rempit” act so badly and threatening to public. Most importantly each of us should do our part together to save this “Mat Rempit” or save them before being “Mat Rempit”. This is our country, we proud to be part of it so do show some contribution. A phrase taken from J.F Kennedy, “Don’t ask what your country done for you, but ask yourself, what you have done for your country.” Together we build our nation, one for all and all for one.

OBJECTIVE

Most likely it will link us back to the basic principle of humanity. We will look inside of “mat rempit” view. What make them to be like that? Who should be blame? Or why there is no rough’s action to overcome these matters.

Additionally, some Mat Rempits do not have valid motorcycle licenses, do not pay road taxes, and ride stolen motorcycles. A growing number of housing estates have also been turned into racing tracks. It is estimated that there are about 200,000 Mat Rempits in Malaysia.
