From Monday, the police will be launching Ops Warta, a major crackdown on traffic offenders throughout the country, reports Bernama.

The operation is aimed at nabbing traffic offenders who have yet to settle summonses totalling RM1.9 million and those facing arrest warrants for traffic offences, according to federal traffic police chief SAC Mohd Fuad Abd Latiff.

“The operations this time will also focus on vehicles with number plates that flout the law and beacon lights or strobe lights that do not have Road Transport Department (JPJ) approval,” he said on the Royal Malaysia Police’s Facebook account today.

“We have already given motorists adequate time to rectify their vehicles. Those with strobe lights should remove them immediately as we had given them until June 1 to do so,” he told The Star.

“Those with illegal licence plates still have until June 16 to rectify those modifications.”

Mohd Fuad also said the police were deferring their operations on tinted vehicles until the Transport ministry announces a decision on its review of regulations governing tinting of vehicle glass. Does that mean Ops Cermin Gelap has been deferred from June 16?
