Singaporean motorists, revealed yesterday to have 37,506 unsettled traffic summonses since 2014, can now check the status of Malaysian summonses and make payment at 900 kiosks erected in the city state or online, Bernama reports.

Bukit Aman traffic investigation and enforcement department director SAC Sharul Othman Mansor said Singapore-registered vehicles topped the list of outstanding summonses with followed by cars from Thailand, Brunei and Indonesia.

“A total of 20,651 summonses have been paid, but we still have more than 61,000 yet to be settled,” he said, referring to the total number of unsettled traffic summonses by foreign registered vehicles since 2014.

There should be no excuse, as Singaporeans can pay their dues without coming to Malaysia. “The payments can be made at 900 kiosks which have been provided by the PDRM in Singapore. Alternatively, they can also pay online.

“There’s no excuse for not settling summonses in Singapore, and it’s not necessary for PDRM to set up a counters at the Malaysian High Commission in the republic or other neighbouring countries for the moment,” Sharul Othman said, adding that Singaporeans can also pay at several locations in Johor such as Johor Premium Outlet and the Gelang Patah R&R.

Motorists from across the Causeway have told the media earlier this year that they were willing to pay for the summonses, but wanted proof that they were the ones who committed the offence, citing cloned vehicles used on Malaysian roads as a cause for concern.
