M’sia Police: S’poreans Can be Arrested If They Try to Leave M’sia With Outstanding Summons


Out of the 143,427 summons involving Singaporeans in Malaysia handed down since 2016, 108,757 have yet to be settled. 

Yeah, 108,757. That’s literally two-thirds of the summons.

Despite the large number, you’re sorely mistaken if you think you can just act blur live longer and go on your JB trip with outstanding summons.

Arrested, Charged, Detained 

Bukit Aman Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department director, Mat Kasim Karim, has explicitly reminded Singaporean drivers that consequences will be meted out if summons are ignored.

For summons that have progressed to the stage of arrest warrants, Malaysian police can arrest the traffic offender and charge him in court immediately.

In the case of a same-day charge, if they cannot produce a Malaysian bailor, the offender will be detained. 

Just Follow the Rules, Guys

“The summons issued were for various traffic offences such as driving over the speed limit, cutting queues, ignoring traffic signs, not wearing seat belts, using registration numbers that do not follow the regulations or specifications, no brake lights, causing road accidents and traffic obstructions, and so on,” Mat Kasim Karim stated.

Vehicles passing through the checkpoints will be tracked and processed, including details like whether they have outstanding summons.

So if you don’t want to be detained and charged in court in a foreign country, settle your summons ASAP before your next holiday across the Causeway.

Or better yet, just obey the traffic rules and don’t get the summons in the first place.


And don’t be an ugly Singaporean there. Watch this to the end and you’d understand:
