Using Fake Number Plate to Avoid Repossession of Motorcycle

A man installed a fake number plate on his motorcycle to avoid it being repossessed.

The man stopped during a roadblock conducted by the Road Transport Department (JPJ) at the Petaling Jaya Selatan Toll Plaza 5 near Subang Jaya, yesterday. The officers who were at the operation noticed that the motorcycle had no front number plate, while the rear number plate was incomplete.

The JPJ officers then carried out a chassis inspection and found that the Yamaha 135LC motorcycle did not match the registration number attached to the motorcycle.

Finally the motorcyclist admitted that he changed the number plate on his motorcycle because he did not want it to be repossessed as he had failed to pay the instalments for more than 3 months.

“I have to pay RM299 every month and there are three more years to pay.

“I changed this number plate a week ago, as I was afraid that the shop would repossess it. I know the risk of doing this, but that’s that… I accept the consequences,” he said.

JPJ seized the motorcycle involved. The man was also found not to have a driver’s license.

Wahid's lust for motorcycles was spurred on by his late-Dad's love for his Lambretta on which he courted, married his mother, and took baby Wahid riding on it. He has since worked in the motorcycle and automotive industry for many years, before taking up riding courses and testing many, many motorcycles since becoming a motojournalist. Wahid likes to see things differently. What can you say about a guy who sees a road safety message in AC/DC's "Highway to Hell."
