Prolintas keeps catching toll evaders: Caught Mercedes-Benz driver owes RM275.65 in toll payments –

Prolintas continues its crackdown on toll evaders and recently revealed on Twitter that it managed to entrap a driver of a Mercedes-Benz A-Class on the Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Elevated Expressway (AKLEH). According to the post, the driver had 45 overdue toll payments in the amount of RM275.65, which was settled on the spot.

It goes without saying that toll evasion is illegal and those arrested can be charged under Section 8 of the Federal Highways (Private Management) Act 1984, which provides for a fine of between RM2,000 and RM5. 000 in case of conviction. However, this will require a toll concessionaire to bring a civil action against the violators.

Previously, Prolintas also took to Twitter to report on a Proton X50 driver with a toll arrears of RM57.50. In October last year, a driver from Honda City was also detained on the Kajang Dispersal Link Expressway, also known as SILK Highway, with RM256.20 in toll fees owed.

Toll evasion is nothing new here and you have probably read stories or seen videos of cars following very closely the vehicles in front of them at toll plazas to avoid paying the passing toll fee before it comes down. the barrier.
