Singaporeans Top In Unpaid Traffic Summonses

Posted on: 2017-01-09

JOHOR BARU: Singaporeans are still tops for unpaid traffic summonses, with 184,014 summonses since 2010 estimated at millions of ringgit.

Revealing this today, Bukit Aman Traffic Enforcement and Investigation Department chief SAC Datuk Mahamad Akhir Darus said statistics from 2010 to 2016 revealed that a total of 5,358 foreign motorists have been issued arrest warrants for committing traffic offences in Malaysia, with some 3,423 of them Singaporeans.

He however declined to say how much these summonses amounted to.

"Those who have traffic summonses should settle them at the nearest police station or by other channels," he said in a press conference at the Johor Police Contingent headquarters.

He said with the vehicle entry permit (VEP) scheduled to take effect in June this year it would be easier for police to trace the errant foreigner offenders.

"When you have a traffic summons in our system, we do not delete it even after 10 years," he said.

It is believed that majority of the Singaporean drivers were slapped with summonses for illegal parking and speeding.

The fine for illegal parking ranges between RM70 and RM100 while for speeding is RM300.

Mahamad Akhir said from 2010 to 2016, police also issued arrest warrants against 1,116 Thailand motorists, 509 Brunei motorists, 36 Indonesian motorists and 274 other foreign motorists.
