Demerit Point system:

Let's say you have 0 point on 1st January 2005, and you committed the offence of Failing to Put on Seat Belt.
So now, you will have 3 demerit points and this will last for 1 Year.

If during this 1 year you have no demerit points offence at all, your 3 demerit points will be gone on 1/1/2006.

But, if during this one year, From 1/1/2005- 1/1/2006, you commited another offence with demerit points, your very first offence will be
extended for another year until 1/1/2007.

  1. Driving in Singland is bad enough, driving in Bolehland is worse - so any penalty to enforce safe and proper behaviour on the road will be a welcome effort.

  2. Could this be a universal issue or just this part of the world? I hear traffic in Taipei and HCMC is also like that.

  3. hei... bookable offence is 20 kmh about legal speed limit.

    you work for jpj also ha? trying to warn & sked us issit hahaha..

    Welcome to the world of Malaysia ler ... !!! Hey ... long time no see!

  5. Hey, I'm doing you a favour lah. You'll be coming to KL for the meet next month, right? And of course you can't wait to meet all the KL lengluis so I was afraid you'd step up on the gas and get into trouble, mah. Also, with Robin's sportscar, you never know what mischief he might get into. hahahaha...........

  6. Hey, hey, hey, look who's back! Mikel! So good to have you back. I have missed you. Thanks for coming a-calling. We've gotta catch up. Take care in the meantime.

  8. uwwaaaah... how ah, like that... scared to drive leh...

  9. wah lau, everything goes up..

    Bribing also must have gone up in bolehland.

  10. Hi Leonard, drive safe.

    Hiyah, Lrong, driving in Ketah, no problem lah. haha...

    Robin, I can only sigh. **Sigh** The thing that's frustrating is driving on the highway as in certain parts, the speed limit is only 90km/hr! Gosh, the monotonous drive is tough on the eyes - makes you sleepy bigtime. zzzzzzzzZZZZZZZZZZZ.............

  11. I don't drive anymore.

    Even so, my brother once got a ticket for doing 55 mph in a 45 zone on his bicycle (I'm serious - it was a custom racing bike going down a long steep highway grade). Brother went to court and the judge threw it out because he could simply not believe it was possible.

    Actually, some people have gone 70 mph on a bicycle. For me, anything over about 20 mph is too fast.
