Malaysians can keep their old cars

The government does not plan to dispose of all vehicles over 15 years old because it does not have a suitable mechanism for doing so yet, Deputy Transport Minister Jelaing Mersat said today.

The government would also have to get the views of non-governmental organisations and the public before the disposal of all old vehicles could be enforced in the country, he told the Dewan Negara.

Although use of these old vehicles was allowed, the road transport department and police were ensuring that they were road-worthy, he said.
