Johor police on the hunt for drivers of Singapore-registered luxury cars filmed ‘overtaking dangerously’ on highway
SINGAPORE — The police in Johor are investigating a convoy of Singapore-registered luxury sports cars after they were caught on video driving dangerously along a stretch of highway near Kota Tinggi.
In a statement on Tuesday (July 19), Kota Tinggi police chief Hussin Zamora said that the authorities there had seen footages of the cars on a Facebook page at about 8.55pm last Sunday.
“On July 17, at about 8.55pm, the traffic investigation and enforcement department of the Kota Tinggi division identified a video clip on Facebook of a convoy of seven vehicles driving and overtaking dangerously in a manner that can cause accident,” Mr Hussin said, without giving details of the Facebook page.
He added that the vehicles were along the 42km-mark of Jalan Sungai Rengit – Kota Tinggi.
In the police statement, Mr Hussin also listed the licence plate numbers and colour of the seven foreign-registered vehicles.
- SLW3839P — Yellow
- EN403M — White
- SKH3888M — Red
- SMG80C — Red
- SBA479Z — Black
- SMZ986P — Yellow
- SNF19A — White
“The police are in the process of locating all seven of the drivers involved in the incident. We request the cooperation of the owners of the vehicles to present themselves to the traffic investigation and enforcement department at the Kota Tinggi district police headquarters,” he added.
In one video shared by the police on Facebook, a yellow car is seen overtaking the driver of a vehicle filming the convoy, causing a vehicle on the other side of the road to careen slightly off the highway onto a dirt path.
After that, a red sports car can be seen driving on the opposite side of the highway for around 10 seconds.
Later, two red cars are seen overtaking dangerously as another vehicle approaches in the opposite direction.
The Johor police did not state the brand and make of the seven cars, though they appear to be Porsche models.
In the police statement, Mr Hussin urged members of the public to be patient when driving on the roads. He warned drivers that they should not partake in actions that can cause harm to themselves as well as other road users.
