PDRM caught the Singaporeans bikers who taped up their bikes’ number plates yesterday.
PDRM showed a radar gun picture of a Suzuki Hayabusa travelling at 253 km/h, although they did not specify where the group was stopped.
Another picture of a PDRM highway patrol car stopped in front of the motorcycles outside a petrol station shop. The bikers were seen taking selfies and smiling nonchalantly.
The next set of photos saw them paying up their summons at a PDRM payment counter. We assume they were escorted to the nearest police station.
Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun confirmed that the group were Singaporeans and the dashcam video was caught in Johor Bahru. “We have taken action against those bikers involved, regardless if they are locals, what more foreigners,” he added during a media press conference yesterday.
The Royal Malaysian Police had set up roadblocks and speed traps on Malaysia’s main highways and roads in conjunction with the Chinese New Year. Major celebrations in the country always sees the exodus of thousands of Malaysians to their hometowns and holiday destinations. So, it was foolhardy to pull such a “trick.”
This unruly bunch were lucky they didn’t get involved in accidents and causing even more difficulties to highway users during this busy time.
In any case, well done, PDRM.

A car’s dashcam recently caught a number of Singaporean motorcycles with taped up number plates on the PLUS North-South Highway. ROADS.sg’s shared the video on their Facebook page and has now gone viral.
The footage showed a large Singaporean motorcycle convoy moving along smartly on the left lane and allowing vehicles to pass on the right. That’s good commendable convoy and road etiquette. The car occupants were initially in awe of the big bikes, but they soon started to talk excitedly when they spotted a number of bikes with tape over the rear number plates. Check out the video below (video credit “Amy” and ROAD.sg Facebook page).
So, why did they ride with covered plates? Did part of the plate fall off? Or because of the AES/AWAS/police radar cameras? The biggest suspicion points to avoid their number plates being captured when speeding to avoid fines.
This video showed up days just after the Singapore government issued a statement that they will ban some overseas vehicles to the island republic. This is response to Malaysian motorists owing the Singapore government RM 100 million in traffic fines, reports World of Buzz.
We always take a neutral stand in such matters. There are always the good, the bad and the ugly among any country’s people. So, let’s be responsible and pay up our fines in Singapore. On the other hand, if there are any Singaporean riders reading this, please tell your friends to remove the tape on their number plates. They risk a bigger fine or even having their motorcycles confiscated if caught by the Malaysian authorities.
