Pay up or face suspension, IGP warns 1.7 mil blacklisted drivers - The Sun Daily

KUALA LUMPUR (Aug 21, 2013): The driving licence of 1.7 million individuals blacklisted for refusing to pay their traffic summonses will be revoked.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said the action would be conducted soon and advised the blacklisted motorists to pay their summonses.

"For starter, we are targeting motorcyclists and drivers of commercial vehicles. This is due to the rise in the number of fatal accidents in Ops Selamat III," he told reporters after presenting letters of appreciation to courteous road users and best Ops Selamat III contingent/district here, today.

Khalid said that the police would amend the law to facilitate fast action.

"We will conduct stricter enforcement particularly for speeding, violation of traffic lights and overtaking on the double lines.

"So, do not blame the police for getting summons tickets in areas you least expected," he added.

Ops Selamat III from August 1 to 18 recorded 17,831 road accident cases, 106 less than Ops Selamat II. However, death cases rose by 32 cases or 14.2 per cent, from 226 cases to 258 cases, with the number of deaths rising by 49 cases or 20.2 per cent, from 243 cases to 292.

Earlier, in his speech at the ceremony, Khalid urged motorists, especially motorcyclists, to change their driving attitude to avoid fatal accidents. He was satisfied with public awareness to cooperate with the police in helping to protect property and fight crime.

"This is based on the increased public participation by 8,592 or 58.5 percent residents in Ops Selamat this year.

"This indirectly shows the level of acceptance of the police in the fight against crime has increased." – Bernama
