APART from receiving a few cases of fake licences from motorists, the LTA also received a forged wheel tax during its Christmas and new year operation.

While the authority has yet to confirm the figures from around the region, it has issued a stern warning that those found deceiving the law will be taken to task.

"The forged wheel tax was verified and it was extracted from an old wheel tax with the same colour coding and a modified expired date," authority CEO Naisa Tuinaceva said.

"This is the work of some smart people and no matter how much they want to beat the system, we will crack them down and punish them accordingly.

"Our enforcement officers will be very vigilant on this issue. This issue does not make us weak or in any way compromised our ability. In fact, it has made us to be extra smart, intelligent and more alert."

Mr Tuinaceva has requested the culprits to refrain from doing such illegal activities in order to avoid harsh penalties being imposed on them.

"Those that are doing this activity have been warned to refrain from it because when you are caught, you will face the full brunt of the law and criminal proceedings will be filed against you," he said.
