KUALA BERANG: The decision over whether motorists would be blacklisted due to saman ekor is expected to be made after a high-level meeting next week involving the relevant agencies.

Road Transport Department’s (JPJ) director-general Datuk Solah Mat Hassan said the department had been invited to participate in the discussion, together with the officers from the Transport Ministry, transport departments and enforcement agencies.

Also to take part in the meeting are the police, Malaysian Road Safety Institute (Myros) and Road Safety Department (JKJR).

“A decision will be reached,” he said after attending a JPJ community programme at the Orang Asli settlement in Sungai Berua, here yesterday.

Solat was commenting on the issue after many quarters called for the summons system to be repealed.

He noted that JPJ and other road enforcement agencies could blacklist those who failed to settle their summonses.
