VEP in effect for foreign cars entering Johor
JOHOR BARU: All foreign-registered cars entering Johor from today will be subject to the Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) but there will be no charges until July 15 when the test run ends.
Public Works, Rural and Regional Development Com­mittee chairman Datuk Hasni Mohammad said more than 120,000 owners of Singapore vehicles have registered.
He added that each vehicle lane at the checkpoints was equipped with cameras and sensors to read number plates and RFID tags.
Anyone driving a vehicle with Singapore plates, including Malaysians, will be charged VEP on the Malaysian side. 
“We also do not offer special discounts, like Singapore does,” he said.
In Singapore, each foreign car is given 10 free days. There are also no charges during the weekends. 
VEP is exempt between 5pm and 2am from Monday to Friday while motorcyclists are charged S$4 (RM12).
Also taking effect today is a new directive that requires Immigration officers to personally check vehicles with multiple passengers, to ensure the number tallies.
Johor Immigration director Rohaizi Ibrahim, confirmed the additional measure was to beef up security and make sure the number of people entering and exiting the country tallied with the number of passports presented to Immigration officers.

Rohaizi warned motorcyclists to stop and present their passports for verification and has directed his men to arrest those who do not scan their passport.

Already 18th July 2016.

Can anyone update whether VEP collection started ?

Before 16th July 2016, saw the RFID scanner and Camera up above  Vehicular passport counter.

But no poster where to collect, Q, pay for RFID.

After Khaw B H parliament comment, pause ?

Just went in and out of JB yesterday (Sunday) via. second link. No word of VEP yet.

There is a sign at the immigration counter that says you can tap your touch and go card to "test" the VEP, but that no funds would be deducted. Damn bohliao, can ignore it lol!

Heard from some friends that VEP implementation delayed till October, but no official source for this.
