“There was also a four per cent rise in the number of deaths to 166 compared to 160 fatalities in the 15th Op Selamat.

“Motorcyclists and pillion riders still make up most of the death cases, with 108 deaths or 65 per cent from the total death cases in the 18th Op Selamat,” he said in a statement today.
