Bukit Aman will discuss with relevant authorities to see if there’s a need to blacklist, and subsequently prevent foreign motorists with outstanding traffic summonses from entering the country, The Star reports.

Inspector general of police, Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun, said there’s presently no instructions from the government to the authorities, including the police, to implement such a course of action. “Our operation to identity traffic offenders, including foreigners, is routine and on-going from time to time,” he told reporters at the recent launch of the Southern Region Police band at the Johor Police Contingent headquarters.

This follows Singapore’s new ruling to bar foreign vehicles with outstanding summonses from entering the republic. When asked to comment on the move, Mohamad Fuzi said “we don’t interfere with Singapore’s ruling as it is their prerogative.”

To recap, Singapore authorities said that all foreign motorists who enter Singapore must abide by the country’s laws and settle any outstanding fines for any vehicle-related offences. Those who continue to disregard outstanding fines will not be allowed to enter the country.

Singaporean news portalToday reported that 50 foreign vehicles were denied entry at Woodlands and Tuas since the ban was implemented on April 1. The Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) said all offenders were turned away and diverted to separate parking spaces to be processed, although it’s unclear if this caused the usually long queues that motorists had complained about.

Those who plan to enter Singapore should check if there’s any outstanding fines, and they can do so online through the AXS website and settle them promptly.
