RAWANG: Foreigners driving on Malaysian roads will have to think twice about committing traffic offences, especially speeding, now that the Malaysian police were equipped with the Mobile Card Acceptance Device to detect offenders.
Internal Security and Public Order director Datuk Salleh Mat Rasid said the device used radio frequency to update information on offences committed by foreign drivers, thus enabling police to issue them summonses.
He said this after witnessing an anti-speeding operation at Km444 of the North-South Expressway near here yesterday, refuting claims by Malaysians that foreigners were acting like "kings of the road" while driving in Malaysia because they felt they could get away with it.
He also said foreigners would also be booked on the spot if they were caught committing traffic offences during traffic operations. -- Bernama
