I am against rumor mongering but this stirs a curiosity...

is this true? The old money spinning extortion of an bUMNO idea had been raised again, and whispered that 2 companies have been 'close tender-awarded' the contract to supply/sell the chip-implanted vehicle's number plates? That we Rakyak yg disayangi, will have to replace the exisitng #plates, pay at RM150 and failure to do so, will draw a Rm300 fine?

Can any1 confirm? :confused: I need to know to plan the next year budget for my fleet of double decker buses and airport taxis that i have...also not to mention some say, my marauding cacophonic crowd of mat rempit RXZ and cub chais... :p

Yang Berhasil #plet lama latotupai :cool:

Lato, I also heard about this rumor during Chinese New Year, but with the GE around the corner dun think the PM will implement it. Not especially after saying no increase in RON95, then did the opposite! :mad:

Where else in the world is this kinda number plate being used? What the benefits? My Honda Gold Wing uses sticker number plate on the front shield, only back is plate, do I get 50% discount? Stupido people doing stupido things... they are known as politikus!

aiya just like when they used to charge RM20 for the mykad and then later it's FOC and i paid RM20 for being a good prompt citizen. should have just waited and did it for free!!! :mad: so will it be the same for this case if they do implement it? probably so as they always listen to the rakyat. :rolleyes:

Another project to enhance the life of the 1rakyat who are suckers for punishment. I will not fix it and let them fine me instead, i think that's what i will do.

whispers??? damn loud whispers too... that everyone seems to know the 2 companies being selected for the job.... and if they were PRE-selected, I'm willing to bet that there would be some soon to retire RTD or PSD director sitting on the board.....

Oii... pencen mana cukup da... :rolleyes:

What everyone should do is to boycott this. Let them fine us and if everyone again don't pay the fine, so what? They will probably give discounts again!

From what I understand, the manufacturing cost of the eplate is in the area of RM 25-30.

The difference?

Well I think we all know where the difference is going.......

i fully SOKONG 100% that such world class computer chipped vehicle plates be implemented as soon as possible. Better that it be done before chinese new year 2011 (lest the chinese owners all spent/gambled away their money leow).

I also SOKONG that (an earlier mooted fantastic idea ) all vehicles aged>10yrs MUST be made mandatory scraps (to be sold to a newco privatised junk yard).
That a special all inclusive fee be paid (to another inspection kinda private co) if any1 is sentimental enuff to wanna contibue driving the aging >10yr old junk. This special lesen is to be granted only on a year to year basis subject to the upkeep and condition of the said junk.

I really hope that the above revenue and employment generating, homegrown direct domestic investment ideas, can be quickly and smoothly before Q1 2011. SOKONG!

I think the issue is about the costs and not the idea. I think it is a good idea to control the making of car number plates. Now, any accessory shops can make number plates which I think is ridiculous. In USA it is controlled. Even in Thailand, there are forms of control over the number plates. So I for one would like to see more stringent control over this matter.

Having said that, what is a reasonable price for a number plate? A cheapie is only $10.00 per plate. A quality one with metal frame can cost $50-$100 each. As for the computer chips, I am not sure what it is for. Tracking the vehicle? Well, not so good for those cheating on their wives, and the UMNO and BN leaders do have reputation for that. So, they might be worried about it too.

The concept of having a common plate with some security tracking is good but if the hole at the border to Thailand is wide open and the custom at Port Klang cannot see cars going into containers... whats the point?

BTW if government needs money, then these plates can be issued and sold by JPJ, people will be most willing to pay RM150 but if given to two crony companies with RM2 paidup capital, mana boleh jadi? :mad:
