Update current address, vehicle owners told

KUALA LUMPUR: Vehicle owners must update their current address to ensure authorities can easily contact them, including sending notifications after seizing their vehicles.

Kuala Lumpur Road Transport Department (JPJ) director Mohd Zaki Ismail said that having a proper address would allow the authority to identify the vehicle owner and take appropriate action for offences under Section 64(1) of the Road Transport Act.

“A challenge arises when owners fail to claim their vehicles or do not receive the necessary notice due to address changes,” he said.

To resolve this issue, Mohd Zaki stressed the importance of vehicle owners updating their latest address.

Failure to do so may result in seized vehicles being auctioned off when owners fail to claim them.

Mohd Zaki said this at the Kuala Lumpur JPJ public auction, where a total of 96 vehicles with a combined value of RM214,690 were auctioned off.

Of these, 76 vehicles were deemed roadworthy and eligible for licensing, while the remaining 20 were considered scrap.

“The highest bid received for a scrap vehicle was RM6,000 for a rigid tripper dumper lorry. On the other hand, the highest bid for a licensable vehicle was RM41,000, offered for a small lorry,” Mohd Zaki said.

He said only those who had purchased and signed the auction documents could participate and place bids in the auction.
