NUSAJAYA: It is common for men who have been ordered to pay alimony to disappear after making only a few payments, the Johor state assembly heard. "Our welfare officers often face this problem.
"But what can we do if the person involved cannot be traced?" asked state Women, Family, Health and Community Development Committee chairman Dr Robia Kosai. "One way to solve the problem is to find a new partner for the single mother," she said.
On a suggestion to penalise welfare officers for not being able to trace the husbands involved and to collect the alimony payment, she said it was not a good plan as the department "could only do so much".
Dr Robia was replying to questions posed by Ng Lam Hua (DAP-Mengkibol), Mohamad Taslim (PAS-Maharani) and Goh Tee Tee (BN-Tangkak) at the state assembly sitting here yesterday.
She told the House that issues of alimony payments and the increasing divorce rate were widespread problems in Johor. She said that although many steps had been taken to curb these problems, they were difficult to resolve without the cooperation of the couples involved.
"We have many counselling sessions for married couples who are facing relationship problems.
"But many non-Malays, especially Indian couples, are not interested in these programmes," she said in reply to M.M. Sam(BN-Permas).
Dr Robia said counsellors who conducted the programmes were experienced in marriage counselling, and if more couples joined the programme, the divorce rate could be brought down.
A state assemblyman voiced concerns over ambulance drivers who misused their sirens to beat traffic. Ng See Tiong (BN-Parit Yaani) alleged that several irresponsible ambulance drivers misused their sirens to clear traffic "just to rush to a nearby mamak or fruit stall". "The person who complained about these drivers even went to the fruit stall to check if there was a patient in the van and, of course, there was no one in there.
"We should do something immediately to stop this problem as it could cause people to stop giving way ambulances when there is a real emergency," he said.

Kemalangan jalan raya telah meragut banyak nyawa.Baru-baru ini satu kemalangan jalan raya berlaku di hadapan pam minyak Esso (Mobil) Jalan Temenggong Ahmad Muar, berhampiran simpang ke Taman Seri Temenggong dan Taman Bunga Raya.Kawasan ini merupakan kawasan merbahaya dan sering berlaku kemalangan.Dalam kemalangan melibatkan sebuah kereta dan sebuah motosikal pada waktu malam telah mengorbankan nyawa seorang pelajar sekolah yang menaiki motosikal.
Penunggang motosikal ini maut.Kereta yang melanggarnya tersangkut
di hadapan pondok telefon.
Beginilah keadaan kereta tersangkut di atas batang paip.
Dahsyat....beginilah keadaan kereta yang terlibat kemalangan.
Di belakang kelihatan pam minyak ESSO.
Hari ini,Sabtu 13 November 2010 satu lagi kemalangan jalan raya berlaku di tempat yang sama.Kali ini dua buah kereta terlibat.Kedua-dua pemandunya telah dikejarkan ke Hospital Pakar Sultanah Fatimah Muar.
Kemalangan di tempat yang sama.Kereta ini turut melanggat tiang telefon.
Sebuah kereta lagi telah ditunda.
Teruknya kereta ini !
Apa tindakan Majlis Perbandaran Muar , TNB dan JKR Muar ?
Penduduk setempat berharap supaya kawasan ini dilebarkan , lampu jalan ditambah dan petak /garisan kuning di letakkan di kawasan ini sebelum nyawa yang tidak berdosa terkorban. Cat's eye patut dipasang di garisan tengah jalan ini. Tambahan pula kawasan ini berdekatan dengan Kompleks Mahkamah Muar yang baru menambah lagi kesibukan jalan ini.
