For individuals who have yet to settle their summonses or arrest warrants, you’d better hurry up and do so because Ops Warta has officially begun this week.
After the initial two-week grace period which saw just 33,473 summonses with warrants of arrest status settled, a mere two percent of the 1.59 million arrest warrants issued. Bukit Aman Traffic Chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Mohd Fuad Abdul Latiff said, “This is rather disappointing as we have given them more than two weeks to settle the arrest warrants.”
Police personnel would now begin actively tracing and detaining traffic offenders with warrants of arrest beginning this week.
“I have instructed all traffic summons counters to be opened this weekend to accommodate a surge to pay up summonses,” Mohd Fuad said, advising those who had yet to settle their outstanding warrants to do so quickly.
"If you are stopped at a roadblock and we find out that you have an outstanding warrant, we will take action. Don’t be surprised if you are stopped at a roadblock and are placed under arrest,” he said.
For those want to check on their summonses, you can do so through various methods including online checks at www.myeg.com.my and www.rilek.com.my. Additionally, motorists are able to perform checks at any traffic police counter, post office, Maybank ATMs, Road Transport Department branches, and at selected shopping malls.
