Police hava warned vehicle owners using tinted glasses, registration plates which do not meet specifications and beacon lights to change or take them off before a major operation starts on June 16.

Bukit Aman Traffic Police chief SAC Mohd Fuad Abd Latiff said the operation was intended to reduce risks of crimes.

“This is because it is difficult for victims to identify suspects in the event of crimes due to the use of tinted glasses and registration numbers which do not meet specifications,” he told reporters in Kuala Lumpur, today.

The use of beacon lights must be approved by the Road Transport Department director-general under Rule 138 (1) of the Road Traffic Rules and illegal users were given until June 1 to take them off off before action was taken.

“We give vehicle owners with dark tinted glasses and registration plates not following specifications until May 15.

“After the date, a RM300 compound will be imposed,” said Mohd Fuad. – Bernama, May 15, 2014.
