Police crackdown beginning Monday, June 16 2014.

Police will be launching a major crackdown called Ops Warta to nab traffic offenders throughout the country from Monday.

Federal traffic police chief SAC Mohd Fuad Abd Latiff said the operation aimed to book traffic offenders who had yet to settle summonses totalling RM1.9 million and those facing arrest warrants for traffic offences.

“The operations this time will also focus on vehicles with number plates that flout the law and beacon lights or stroke lights that do not have Road Transport Department approval,” he said on the Royal Malaysia Police’s Facebook account today.

He advised motorists to replace these lights.

However, he said police were deferring their operations on tinted vehicles until the Transport Ministry announces a decision on its review of regulations governing tinting of car windshields and windows. — BERNAMA
