PDRM in Johor will hunt down vehicle owners who use number plates that do not follow the specifications. The operation will begin with officers and members of their force in the state starting today (15 December).

According to Johor police chief Datuk Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay, his department would not compromise or tolerate officers, police personnel and other enforcement agencies reported Berita Harian.

“We will start at the Johor Contingent Police Headquarters (IPK) first. We are talking about the community but there are some officers and policemen who do not follow the rules,” he said.

“From January to today, a total of 9,985 summonses have been issued for using fancy vehicle numbers.”

He said that there are businessmen and ‘mat rempits’ who want to show off their status through their ‘fancy’ vehicle registration numbers, with reasons that they “want uniqueness and style” among other reasons.

Ayob Khan added that starting today (15 December) until 31 December, the police will conduct ‘Ops Khan’ for traffic light offences and vehicle registration numbers that do not meet the specifications.

This includes tampering with the licence plate of a vehicle by changing the letters and numbers and the spacing, making it confusing and difficult to read. When speeding or accident cases take place that involves criminal activity and there is a need to identify the vehicle’s number plate, suspects may escape the penalty.

Owners of fancy vehicle numbers can be prosecuted under Section 14(4) of the Road Transport Act 1987, Rule 6(1) LN173/69 and Section 108(3)(F) 1987.

According to Section 108(3) of the Road Transport Act 1987,

“If any person exhibits on any motor vehicle any licence or identification mark, plate or document which does not belong to such vehicle, he shall be guilty of an offence and shall on conviction be liable to a fine of not less than RM5,000 and not more than RM20,000 or to imprisonment for a term of not less than one year and not exceeding five years or to both.”

Meanwhile, Section 14(4) states:

“If a registration number is not displayed in accordance with this section, the driver or person in charge of the vehicle while it is being used shall be guilty of an offence and shall on conviction be liable to a fine of not less than RM300 and not more than RM3,000.”

On the first day of the summons discount offer, Ayob Khan said, a total of 1,050 individuals paid 2,300 summonses with a collection record of RM152,720. He said, according to the summons statistics, only 27 per cent paid the summons amounting to RM3.6 million, while the rest had not paid a total of RM9.6 million in the summons.
