KUALA LUMPUR - The number of traffic offenders keeps growing with each year. What's worse, more and more are not paying their summonses.
In 2008, traffic police went after 96,000 vehicle users with unsettled summonses under Ops Warta VII. Five years on, the figure has shot up to more than 1.7 million.
Unable to go after all of them at once, police are targeting over 251,000 errant motorists, heavy vehicle drivers and motorcyclists in the first stage of Ops Cantas Trafik.
Notices are being sent out to the offenders, warning them that warrants of arrest have been issued for them. At the same time, expired warrants are being renewed.
