Earlier this month, it was reported that the ‘RR’ vehicle number plate had become the most lucrative plate series for JPJ Perlis, taking in RM7.2 million to overtake the previous collection for the ‘RM’ plate series.

The final figure, as it turns out, is much higher – the state’s road transport department has collected RM12.2 million in tenders for the particular vehicle registration plate, Bernama reports. This well eclipses the ‘RM’ money plate, which took in RM7.1 million for the department.

According to JPJ Perlis liaison officer Mohd Tarmizi Ghazali, the ‘RR’ tenders – which closed on June 19 – also saw the highest number of bidders compared to previous tender exercises.

“The interest shown by fans of the plate number “RR” was exceptional, and the amount collected is the biggest for JPJ Perlis,” he said. He added that the golden numbers (two to 10) raked in RM2.6 million.
