The Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) is offering discounted flat rates on fines issued before 1 September

Throughout the month of September, DBKL will charge offenders a set flat rate for fines issued before 1 September.

The rates have been set based on the vehicle type:
- RM20 for motorcycles
- RM30 for cars, MPVs, vans, lorries, 4WDs, and SUVs
- RM50 for heavy vehicles such as buses, tractors, large lorries, cranes, and trailers

However, the flat rates will only apply to offences of wrongful parking in metered parking areas and DBKL-issued summonses

The discount is not applicable for cases where an offence has an ongoing court case or where an arrest warrant has been issued to the offender.

Offenders who are already on the Road Transport Department's (JPJ) blacklist also do not qualify for the discount.

DBKL will also be introducing new automatic discount rates on traffic summonses issued from 1 September

Motorists will only need to pay RM15 if they settle their fine within 24 hours of its issuance. The 24-hour discount only applies to payments made at DBKL payment counters.

Discounted rates will also be given to those who pay before the 30-day mark:
- Between two to 14 days: RM30
- Between 15 to 30 days: RM50
- More than 30 days: RM100-300

The discounted rates do not include charges for clamping and towing of the vehicle. 

Offenders who do not settle their fines by 30 September will end up on the Road Transport Department (JPJ) blacklist

The warning was issued by DBKL towards offenders with pending summonses issued before 1 September.

DBKL Corporate Planning Department director Khairul Azmir Ahmad added, in a statement to The Star, that no extension will be given after September draws to a close.

DBKL fines can paid at the following places:
- DBKL payment counters and kiosks,
- DBKL Mobis app,
- Pos Malaysia branches,
- and the MyEG website.
