The video has since went viral, prompting netizens to question whether or not a normal citizen could apply these lights for personal use. The answer is very obvious: no.
Upon posting the video, the Tik Tok user @shahrizanboy_ who is apparently a “public figure” and “model” received backlash for his irresponsible usage of the strobe lights.
The offence falls under Road Transport Act 1987 and the police are currently looking into the matter.
