ALOR STAR: A pensioner, who claimed that his road tax sticker disintegrated from the heat of the sun, will get a free replacement if it is found that the damage was caused by a sticker defect. 

Transport Ministry parliamentary secretary Datuk Donald Lim Siang Chai, who gave the assurance, said the ministry would send an officer to check. 

“If it is due to poor quality, we will issue the replacement free,” he told reporters after chairing the Malaysian Chinese Chess Federation’s annual general meeting here on Saturday. 

Lim, who is the federation president, was asked to comment on claims by Liew Chong Wai that the sticker became “crispy” and pieces started peeling off recently, supposedly because of long exposure to the sun. 

It was reported by an English daily on Saturday that Liew had not used his car since the sticker was damaged. 

Liew, 60, from Ipoh, had refused to pay the RM50 fine for the replacement of the nine-month old sticker on the grounds that he should not be penalised for what he said was the sticker’s poor quality. 

He said he had always parked the car outside his house and maintained that that no one had tried to remove the sticker. 

Lim said Liew’s case was the first such case he had come across.
