A Singaporean Was Caught Changing Number Plates Of His BMW At A Petrol Station In Malaysia
Over the weekend, driver of a Singapore-registered BMW Sedan was filmed switching the number plates of the golden-coloured vehicle at a petrol station in Malaysia after he had it refuelled
From the photos posted on a Facebook page called SG Road Vigilante - SGRV, the Singaporean man was acting suspiciously and kept glancing over his shoulders.
The owner of the BMW Sedan switched to a number plate belonging to another Singapore-registered car, a Hyundai Elantra
The BMW driver, who was involved in two speeding offences, was allegedly trying to evade the law by framing someone else
According to the post on the Facebook page, SG Road Vigilante - SGRV, a check on MyEG revealed that while the Hyundai Elantra has been fined for speeding, the picture caught by the speeding camera shows the gold-coloured BMW Sedan.
The first speeding fine had been issued back in 2017, while the second had been issued on 18 May, the same date that the post was uploaded on Facebook.
In the post, the page asked its members if they know the real owner of the Hyundai Elantra to report the matter with the Singapore police or Malaysian High Commission.
In Singapore, the use of a bogus license plate is a jailable offence for up to one year, or fined up to SGD5,000 or both
