Singaporean Driver Who Swapped Plates CAUGHT and FINED!

Justice has been served. In May, we helped spread the news about this Singaporean BMW 3-Series driver who was caught swapping his license plates at a Malaysian petrol station. According to the Singapore Times, the owner of the car, a 44-year-old man named Tan Hock Lai, was fined RM8,000 today in a JB court.

He admitted to the charges and pleaded leniency. He used stress as a result of his unemployment as a reason to excuse his behaviour. He could have been fined as much as RM20,000 and faced jail time, but got away with just RM8,000. I suppose those fines are reserved for more organised and ill-intending instances of crimes like these.
