Malaysia Allows Web Visitors to Issue Traffic Tickets
Upload photographs of a traffic offense in Malaysia and the police will issue a citation.

Malaysia Road Traffic website
Visitors to a new Malaysian Road Safety Department website can now issue traffic citations to friends, enemies and strangers. All it takes is a photograph of the alleged incident which, when uploaded to the site, will result in the government following up and issuing a traffic citation.

The website features both a "Hall of Shame" for "rude road users caught in the act" and "Hall of Merit" for motorists and pedestrians worthy of "applause." Twenty photographs are currently online.

Article Excerpt:
The Government is confident that the launch of the website could help curb the number of offences committed on the road.
