Hurry Up And Settle Your PDRM 'Saman' Or The Cops Will Come Knocking On Your Door
The police will be knocking on the doors of hundreds of thousands of traffic offenders when Ops Warta kicks off next month
In 2008, traffic police had embarked on a door-to-door operation to serve warrants of arrest to traffic offenders under Ops Warta.
In 2013, police targeted over 251,000 errant motorists, heavy vehicle drivers and motorcyclists in the first stage of Ops Cantas Trafik.
Notices were sent out to the offenders, warning them that warrants of arrest have been issued against them.
According to Bukit Aman traffic chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Mohd Fuad Abdul Latiff, there are 1.59 million Malaysians who have outstanding warrants of arrest
Bukit Aman traffic chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Mohd Fuad Abdul Latiff said they had not forgotten about those traffic offenders who had outstanding warrants of arrest.
“To date, 2.49 million of the 4.09 million warrants of arrests have already been settled.
“Now we are looking at the remaining 39% (1.59 million),” he said at Bukit Aman yesterday.
The police mean business. They will be working with the EPF and National Registration Department to track down the addresses of traffic offenders.
They have already sent out multiple warnings to these offenders
SAC Mohd Fuad said multiple warnings have already been given over the past two years, but these remaining offenders were stubborn and had refused to settle their summonses.thestar.com.my
A word of warning from SAC Mohd Fuad: "Don’t be surprised if you are stopped at a roadblock next month and are placed under arrest."
SAC Mohd Fuad added that the operations would kick off some time next month.
“Don’t be surprised if you are stopped at a roadblock next month and are placed under arrest,” he said.
Also, the police will not be accepting "no money to pay summonses" as an excuse anymore
