True? Untrue?

I keep feeling that this is a joke, and would really like for someone to confirm this. Received it from a friend. If not, please assist:

The message below is from a CID Officer with Polis Diraja Malaysia. Kindly forward it to your colleagues or friends.

ROAD SAFETY ALERT

A police officer working with a the DARE program has issued this warning:

If you are driving after dark and see an on-coming car with no
headlights on,
DO NOT FLASH YOUR LIGHTS at them.

This is a common gang member “Initiation Game”. The new gang member under initiation drives along with no headlights and first car to flash their headlights at him is now his “target”. He is now required to turn around and chase that car, and shoot at or into the car in order to complete his initiation requirements.

Make sure you share this info with all the drivers in your family & friends.

Thanks.

Edit: It was a hoax. Ah well. Sorry about that guys!

    Ah. I’ve got the same email forward too!

    Hm. Still, we can’t be certain of our safety anymore. Especially at night. :/
