JPJ Selangor ops: 1,112 vehicles checked, 632 saman issued over expired driving license and road tax

JPJ set up a big roadblock at the Awan Besar toll plaza on the Kesas Highway yesterday night. The integrated operations (Operasi Bersepadu) involved 183 officers from JPJ, PDRM, AADK (National Anti Drug Agency), JAS (Department of Environment), SPRM (MACC), immigration department, Puspakom and Kesas Highway.

JPJ’s senior director of enforcement Datuk Lokman Jamaan said that the operations, led by JPJ Selangor, inspected 1,112 vehicles and of that total, action was taken on 401 vehicles. In total, 632 saman were issued for various offences including not having a driving license, expired driving license, expired road tax, no insurance cover and overloading, among other things.

In the same operation, 32 saman were issued by the police, 12 foreigners were arrested by the immigration department and eight loud vehicles were booked by the JAS. Also, six people were caught by AADK. The mega roadblock, which was held from 9pm till midnight, was visited by deputy chief secretary of the transport ministry, Datuk Razali bin Mohamad.

JPJ advises motorists and vehicle owners to always adhere to road regulations under the Road Transport Act 1987. Check your road tax and license expiry dates now, and set a reminder if you haven’t already done so.

    So.half the vehicles checked received summons.
    This is 50%,not 5%.Amazingly, horrendously unacceptable.
    So,if the new unity garmen wants more revenue,just do roadblocks besar besaran daily,sure got more revenue and motorists will start to take note not to be repeat offenders.

      Law is law. Pay up like any other law obedient citizen to avoid being summoned.

  • Obviously there are a lot of traffic offenders out there, such operations need to be carried out more frequently, get to work JPJ. and don’t give discount for those who never pay the saman, increase the amount if they never pay after a period of time, and if they still don’t pay then revoke their driving license, like that only ppl will start to obey the undang-undang.

      Exactly! These ppl been flouting the road transport law without consequences all these years. Time for the authorities to put their foot down and give as many max summons as possible. Good for the govt coffer and set an example. And don’t let those so-called “VIP” owned vehicles off the hook either.
      Hopefully new administration and Anthony Loke see this through.

    Go check in rural roads. Can guarantee 9 out 10 will get a summon. No road tax and no insurance and no license.
