Dear A.S.S. Editor
For all Singaporean drivers who think they can get away without paying any traffic fines in Malaysia, think again. The Johor Police Chief, Dzulkhairi Mukhtar said the Johor police are actively pursuing Singaporean motorists with outstanding traffic summonses. Those who are located will be made to pay the summonses on the spot.
To make things even easier for the Singaporean drivers to pay their fines, Johor traffic police will also be equipped with wireless credit card readers in order to facilitate electronic payments. So there is no way for you to run away without paying for your fines. However, it is not known how the Malaysian police keeps the records of these fines and summonses, of which there are 134,227 unpaid summonses so far. The most logical way would be via the car’s licence plate numbers.
So, for those drivers driving second hand cars, or rental cars, better be sure that the car have no Malaysian fine outstanding against them. If not, you may be forced to pay for a fine that you did not incur. Bottom line is, why so many Singaporeans not paying their fines in Malaysia in the first place?
