Singaporean vehicles recorded the most unpaid summonses at 313,661 – that’s 37.4% of a total of 838,510 summonses issued to foreign vehicles for various traffic offences between 2000 and 2013, the report said.

“(Translated) The operation took place in three locations near entry points to this country – KM 2, Jalan Tebrau, Pandan R&R on the Eastern Dispersal Link, and the Second Link Expressway at Gelang Patah,” the Malay-language daily quoted Johor head of police Datuk Mohd Mokhtar Mohd Shariff as saying.

Mohd Mokhtar said a total of 555 overdue foreigner-incurred summons were settled in the operation, with RM64,269 collected through cash and RM35,190 through credit cards.
