KUALA LUMPUR: Sixty nine individuals have been arrested in the nationwide 'Ops Warta' which started today.
In the all-out police crackdown on delinquent drivers who have outstanding arrest warrants, Penang had the most number with 36 arrests followed by Melaka with 24 arrests.
Federal traffic police chief SAC Datuk Mohd Fuad Abdul Latiff said 38,000 from 1.59 million warrants have been settled as of today.
"We see an improvement since the operation with 260,600 summonses settled. However, there is still a large number of summonses which are yet to be settled," he said in a press conference at the Bukit Aman police headquarters here today.
He added that despite announcements made since last month, traffic offenders did not take the opportunity to settle their outstanding warrants and summonses.
