Police issue 8,718 summonses on first day of Op Saman Ekor – compounds sent to offenders’ homes

The police have issued 8,718 summonses as part of a postal summons operation for speeding dubbed Op Saman Ekor that began on Monday (August 21, 2023).

As reported by Bernama, Bukit Aman JSPT (traffic investigation and enforcement department) deputy director Datuk Mohd Nasri Omar revealed motorists (car drivers) accounted for the bulk of summonses issued with 8,352. Meanwhile, commercial and service vehicles recorded a total of 322 summonses, followed by motorcyclists with 44 summonses.

“A K170A summons notification for speeding will be delivered to the vehicle owner according to the driver’s licence address by registered post (as opposed to a summon on the spot). All (postal summonses) for speeding offences can be settled at any police district traffic offices in the country,” said Mohd Nasri.

The JSPT uses high-speed cameras to catch any driver violating the speed limit, with a RM300 compound being posted to the purported offender. Mohd Nasri added that driving above the speed limit is one of the main causes of road accidents in the country where speeding drivers fail to control the vehicle.

    these speed traps, do they also catch speeding motorcycles and bikes on public roads and highways? on highways often met these bikes speeding way above speed limits and worse, they zig zag between cars dangerously.

    • Driving is so boring at town with low speed, easily overspend.

      Without the Adaptive Cruise Control daily driving can be so stressful. It help me to control max speed and follow car in front instead of simply overtaking him and kena speeding saman.

    I can see that they are actually hiding beneath the ARMCO Guardrails.

    I thought PDRM has already issued SOP on how to set up speed traps, and that includes officers not hiding in drains, bushes etc?

  • PDRM should automatically offer the discounted rate because no one is going to pay at first, and a discount will be offered at a later date anyway. So why bother with RM300 summon? Just reduce it to RM50 straightaway.

      Then where is the deterrent effect? RM 50 isn’t the same hit as RM 300. Might as well call it speeding tax then. Make it RM 1000, go tell sob story la, rayuan la, jual bontot whatever and then reduce to RM 300. Jangan diskaun, bila rasa sakit then only behaviour will change.

        Our brainless law enforcement in this country does not provide any deterrence for traffic offences nor do they enforce against traffic offences. Every single day on the highways and trunk roads we see cops doing the easy job of stopping motorcyclists to extort money, but they will not notice cars using the emergency lane and heavy vehicles that tailgate smaller vehicles at way above the speed limit.

        This is what you get when the force consists of poor academic performers who sign up to be cops, similar to how uneducated youths got deployed as soldiers in the Vietnam war because there were not many other career options for imbeciles.

    this is a waste of polis resources. Poor man need to sit in the heat to catch people. Just follow what 1st world countries do. They check the toll-in and toll-out times. If a car has been speeding, then it will receive a summons based solely on the time. eg at 110kmh for 100km stretch of road, if the car exist in a quicker time, that means he has been speeding = summons.

      Don’t think that would work as you will still need evidence pointing the particular location & time the driver has broken the law.

      I was in Taipei and you are right, the taxi driver told me that is how the catch speeding motorists. You enter the gate and exit time is calculated by computer. if its faster that the allowed speed limits, you automatically get demerits.
