In an interview with The Star Online, JPJ director-general Datuk Seri Shaharuddin Khalid said those performing the challenge were endangering road users, on top of being a public nuisance.

The JPJ head said the department is currently examining legal provisions which will allow officers to punish Malaysians for pulling off the challenge

"We have our legal framework for us to take action, but such actions which do not follow ordinary road courtesy are of course not allowed by the ethics of the community," he said.

The traffic police will take action on anyone caught in the act too, Shaharuddin added

The "Keke Challenge" is the latest viral stunt to take over the Internet. It involves jumping out of a slow-moving car and dancing next to it with Canadian rapper Drake's In My Feelings track blasting in the background.

The dance was made popular by singer/comedian Shaggy, which was later caught on with high-profile stars like Will Smith and Ciara. 

Local celebrities have also jumped on the bandwagon, uploading their renditions of the dance on social media.
