The Road Transport Department (JPJ) is asking for the help of all road users to report any customised car number plates that do not follow the JPJ regulated specifications.

In just the first 5 months of 2020, JPJ has issued a total of 12,694 notices to car owners for using a number plate that is not up to the JPJ regulated specifications.

JPJ also reports that they have compounded 7,455 cars between January and May for the same reason.

For years, customised, or also known as “fancy”, number plates have been a massive problem for JPJ. In 2016, JPJ started taking action against these fancy number plates by issuing summons and compounds. It is still an ongoing effort for the department.

JPJ Director-General Datuk Seri Shaharuddin Khalid stated that JPJ will now be calling car owners with a non-regulated number plate into questioning.

Further investigations will be carried out after the questioning before a summon is issued should JPJ determined that the number plate style is not up to par.

In 2016, 13,606 compounds were issued for the offence. The number only grew as the years passed. In 2019, a total of 31,716 compounds were issued, the highest number yet.

Review: Chery Omoda 5 in Malaysia - Bang-for-buck hero does its best to exorcise ghosts of Chery's past

Something about rising tides and lifting boats paints the picture of the Chinese car industry, and among the pleathora of startup small boats rolling into the vast sea you have your vessels; built on the back of years of trial and error, no doubt buoyed with a full coffer. Of course, for a fair few companies, the motivation to chart new waters is to correct missteps of years prior. 奇瑞, or Chery to you and I, will know very well what the latter means. Yesteryear's QQ and A160 were a crack at the

Toyota's Kinto is getting bored, finds a way to make the AH30 Alphard and Vellfire sliding doors close faster

You know how some cars can be truly fantastic except for one minor detail that you just can’t overlook and it ends up ruining the entire driving experience. It could be a terrible head unit or a bad seating position. Well, some of the engineers at Toyota’s Kinto subscription service thought that could be the abysmally slow speed of the sliding doors on the previous AH30 generation of the Toyota Alphard and Vellfire. Either that or they must be getting really bored over there. Or someone has secr
