Ops Warta was launched today to crackdown on motorist with outstanding summonses and on the first day itself, 69 people were arrested from Selangor, Penang, Malacca, Kuala Lumpur, Sabah and Perak.
According to federal traffic police chief, SAC Datuk Mohd Fuad Abdul Latiff, said that Penang has the highest number of traffic offenders (36 arrest made in Penang) and followed by Malacca (24 arrest made in Malacca). He also added that the operation is moving a little slow based on the reports received whereby it shows that 38,000 out of 1.59 million warrants have been settled. On top of that, only 260,600 summonses have been settled so far which is not the ideal number as there are still plenty of outstanding summonses.
Datuk Mohd Fuad urges traffic offenders to come forward and settle their summonses because for now arrests will be made during roadblocks and workplace visit and after that it will be going from door to door which is not something everyone wants.
