Road tax is not the most fun thing but it is very necessary for all registered vehicles in Malaysia to be able to drive on the road legally. You can be the best and safest driver there is but without having the road tax sticker on your car, you can still get yourself in trouble.
With that being said, there have been many complaints about the sticker. The complaints aren’t necessarily about acquiring the sticker but rather about the quality as it’s pretty fragile and can easily be torn off when you open it. It looks like nothing much has changed as this Twitter user’s complaint is getting a lot of attention.
@hellioz666 posted a photo on their Twitter of their new road tax sticker. Unfortunately for the netizen, the photo showed that the sticker had been torn when they were trying to open it. The user took the liberty of expressing their frustration by tagging the current Minister of Transport, Anthony Loke in their post in hopes that he’ll look into this ongoing problem.
“I’m asking @anthonyloke to take a look at this stupid JPJ vendor. I just opened the road tax sticker and it got torn immediately. This is really inconvenient for all car owners in Malaysia!” said the Twitter user. After the tweet went viral, many netizens responded to the post saying that they agree that the fragility of the road tax stickers had caused them many inconveniences.
Most are asking for improvements in the sticker’s quality as they’ve paid a lot of money to acquire it. Others are suggesting that it should be digitalized instead. There were also a few who explained why the stickers can be easily torn but still agree that it can be pretty messy.
At the time of writing, there have been no updates from the Twitter user nor a response from the Minister of Transport. In other news, Anthony Loke recently looked into the LRT issues personally by experiencing what others have been experiencing throughout this year.
The newly appointed Minister also just announced that the LRT disruptions are expected to be resolved by the third quarter of 2023.
