JOHOR BAHRU: A total of 2.3 million outstanding summonses with an estimated value of RM340 million were recorded by the Johor police from 2014 to date.
Johor police chief Kamarul Zaman Mamat said of the total, 109,758 summonses involved Singaporean drivers.
“So far, only 600,000 summonses have been settled. Among the highest traffic offences recorded were driving over the speed limit and beating the red light at junctions,” he told media at the Johor police contingent headquarters here.
Therefore, he urged all traffic offenders to take advantage of the 50% discount offers at all district police headquarters in the state from 8.30am to 5pm, from today until Sunday.
Meanwhile, he said the lorry driver who threw rubbish into Sungai Wak Rabun Batu 33 in Pontian, whose action was caught in a viral video recording, was detained at 7pm yesterday to assist in the investigation.
“His urine test came back negative but checks found that he has previous drug and criminal records,” he said.
Kamarul Zaman added that the 52-year-old man was issued a compound under Rule 52 LN 166/59 while his lorry was sent to Puspakom for inspection.
