A TOTAL of 111 guilds, associations and political parties have signed a petition asking for the abolition of the Senai toll in Johor, China Press reported. 

The signatures were collected within four hours from 6pm on Sunday through a campaign organised by the Kulai and Senai Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industries.  

They want the toll abolished rather than have the rates reduced. 

Johor Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industries deputy chairman Datuk Dr Lim Ba said the Senai toll plaza should be the next in line to cease operations, after the Cheras and Jalan Kuching toll plazas in Kuala Lumpur. 

“Johor people have always been supportive of the Government and gave the Barisan Nasional a 100% win in the state,” he said, referring to the two other plazas which he said were located in constituencies held by opposition parties. 

Representatives from various Chinese clans, guilds and associations and opposition parties such as the DAP, Keadilan and PAS showed up in support of the cause. 

The Sin Chew Daily reported on the predicament of a housewife, known only as Wong, who had not been driving for over a decade but received 41 summonses for speeding in three years. 

The summonses amounted to some RM4,000 for alleged offences committed in Cheras, Kuala Lumpur and Shah Alam. 

She brought her grouses to MCA Public Services and Complain department head Michael Chong.  

Wong said although all the summonses had her name and address on it, several cars were used to commit the offences.
