KUALA LUMPUR: A total of 106 vehicles, including luxury marques like BMW and Mercedes-Benz, will be publicly auctioned off on April 30.

Kuala Lumpur Road Transport Department (JPJ) director Datuk Ismail Mohd Zawawi said the vehicles – 75 cars, 28 motorcycles, two lorries and a van – will be auctioned at its state headquarters in Jalan Genting Klang from 9am onwards.

“Most of them are cloned vehicles,” he said after the state-level JPJ Day celebration yesterday.

A public inspection of the vehicles will be held on April 26 and 29 between 10am and 3.30pm.

Ismail said the auction items were categorised as licensed vehicles (which means they can be used on the road) and scrap.

“For the vehicles that must be scrapped, only licensed scrap metal operators are allowed to bid.

“The operators must bring the equipment to dismantle the vehicles to the JPJ office, and they will be provided space to do so,” he said.

Interested parties are advised to obtain the relevant documents at the department’s financial unit.

On another matter, nine taxi touts were detained by JPJ personnel at the Southern Integrated Terminal (TBS) in Bandar Tasik Selatan here during enforcement operations between April 1 and 10.

Ismail said the team stationed at TBS caught the touts operating inside the terminal instead of at the designated taxi bays.

“They were charging customers fares of at least RM30,” he said, adding that the touts were usually active between 4am and 7am.

“Their targets are bus passengers who have just arrived.”

Ismail said their offence falls under Section 205 of the Land Public Transport Act 2010, which carries a fine of up to RM50,000 upon conviction.
