JOHOR BARU: Police are targeting to collect RM750,000 in outstanding summonses through an operation dubbed "Operasi Saman Tertunggak Warganegara Asing 10" (OSTWA10) here.

Bukit Aman Traffic Investigations and Enforcement Department deputy director Senior Asst Comm Datuk Mohd Nadzri Hussain said the operation, which started last Friday (Sept 27), managed to collect RM611,000 as at 10am Sunday (Sept 29).

"The OSTWA10 started at about 6am last Friday and will end at midnight on Monday at two locations namely Jalan Lingkaran Dalam, Muzium Tokoh Johor Baru and R&R Gelang Patah, Iskandar Puteri.

"The operation is aimed at Singaporean drivers who had outstanding summonses from 2000 until this year," he said when met by reporters at Muzium Tokoh Johor Baru, here on Sunday.

SAC Mohd Nadzri also said the RM611,000 collected involved 3,174 summonses that were settled by 2,687 Singaporeans and 487 Malaysians.

"There is a total of 247,278 recorded summons in our database since the year 2000 where we have only managed to collect 3,174 during this operation," he said, adding that the operation will be continued in the future.

He added that the operation was also in line with the enforcement of Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) on Oct 1,2019.

"All foreign vehicles who want to get their VEP must first settle all their summonses otherwise they will not be able to enter the country.

"Payment can also be made throughout Singapore from 900 available AXS machines aside from checking their summonses via myeg.com.my or rilek.com.my," he said.

He added that payment can also be made at the COPS traffic payment counter at all district police headquarters aside from Pos Malaysia and Maybank ATMs.
