Johor police collect RM1.3mil in summonses


ISKANDAR PUTERI: Traffic summonses totalling RM1.3mil have been collected by Johor police during a three-day 50% discount period that started last Friday.

“Collecting RM1.3mil in summonses is not something that we can be proud of,” said Johor police chief Comm Datuk Kamarul Zaman Mamat. “Instead, it is a clear sign for us to continue to advocate and spread awareness to the public on the importance of following regulations.”

He said some of the traffic offences included speeding, not wearing seatbelts, blocking traffic and cutting queue.

Speaking to reporters yesterday after the closing ceremony of a road safety convoy with Brother Motor, he said out of the 109,758 summonses involving Singaporean drivers, only 26 summonses had been settled. As such, he hoped there would be more programmes that could benefit not just local motorists but also road users from Singapore.

Overall, he said there were 2.2 million outstanding summonses from 2018 until now, of which only 23% had been paid.

On the three-day convoy with Brother Motor aimed at advising motorcyclists on road safely and obeying traffic rules, Comm Comm Kamarul Zaman said police would continue to work with “mat motor” so that they could be the ears and eyes of the authorities.

“We need to be in constant communication with these groups and give them a chance to know how enforcement works,” he said.
