Back in May this year, a Singaporean driver was seen swapping the number plates on his E90 BMW 3 Series at a Petron station in Gelang Patah, before being caught speeding by highway cameras. Justice has now been served, as the man has been fined RM8,000 for his actions after pleading guilty in court in Johor Bahru, the The Straits Times reports.

The driver was found to have violated Section 108(3)(f) of Malaysia’s Road Transport Act 1987, whereby offernders could fine of least RM5,000 and not more than RM20,000, or a jail term of not less than a year and not exceeding five years, or both.

Displaying a forged number plate is also an offence in Singapore, one that can see those found guilty be fined up to SGD5,000, or face a jail term of up to a year, or both.

The act, which went viral on social media, was captured on video by another Singaporean driver who then posted it on Facebook. In it, we see the BMW owner his original licence plate (SLX27E) to one bearing the registration number SKD2777C, which is actually registered to a Hyundai Elantra.

About an hour after the incident, the car was then caught speeding on a Malaysian highway, but the RM150 summons was issued to the SKD2777C registration plate instead.
