Singaporean drivers owe RM6.5 million in unpaid summonses for traffic offences committed in Johor that date back over two years, the New Straits Times reports.

“There are more than 40,000 traffic offenders from Singapore who committed offences in Johor. They have yet to pay a total of RM6.5 million in outstanding summonses over the past two years,” Johor police traffic chief Supt Baharudin Mat Taib revealed.

Sounds like a big sum, but before you throw stones across the Causeway, Baharudin said Johor police are hunting down more than 30,000 Malaysian traffic offenders who have been issued with arrest warrants, owing up to RM9.3 million in unpaid summonses.

If you’re one of them, beware. An operation to track down traffic offenders will be conducted prior to the Chinese New Year holidays on February 8-9 under Ops Warta. Arrest warrants have already been issued in 2015. “The traffic offenders are Malaysians who each owe summonses exceeding RM300. If the summonses were collected from these offenders, the collection could reach RM9.3 million,” said Baharudin.
