Malaysian Government Clamps Down on Errant Singapore Motorists, Earns S$65,000 in 2 Days

Singapore might have the COE to make motorists pay and pay, but Malaysia has good old fashioned policing.

In 2 days, 5710 Singaporean vehicles were stopped, resulting in 3000 Singaporean motorists made to pay RM$200,000 (S$64,342) in fines for traffic violations.

These 3000 errant Singaporeans somehow managed to chalk up 184,024 unpaid summonses amongst themselves.

The crackdown by Malaysian authorities took place across 6 and 7 Jan, with checks carried out at Gelang Patah Rest and Relaxation stop near the Second Link, the Pandan Rest and Relaxation stop at Eastern Dispersal Link (EDL) and Km2 of Jalan Tebrau.

Malaysia’s traffic police has warned the operations will be ongoing, and advised Singaporeans to pay their fines promptly.

    What is 65,000 collected for doing something wrong. It’s “peanuts”, as quoted by wife of an anonymous minister. We collect 65,000 many times a day, 365 times a year. Sometimes we can even collect 100,000. All that for not even doing anything wrong. Just the right to drive a car for 10 years.

    So New Proton in Malaysia sgp 20,000 use (40yr) until you die or until car dies whichever come first.

    So old Proton in sgp 20,000 use 2.5 yrs then the car is gone. Want to use whole life like 40yrs 250,000
