Kuala Lumpur Traffic Police will be offering a 50% discount on summonses in conjunction with the Christmas celebration
The half-price discount is offered during the KL Traffic Police’s 'Meet the Customers Day', reported The Star.
KL Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department (JSPT) chief Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Zulkefly Yahya said the event will be held between 8.30am and 4pm on 24 December and 26 December.
The public will be able to clear their outstanding fines at Tun H. S. Lee Police Station located in the city centre on both days
"We are offering a 50% discount for various types of traffic summonses," Zulkefly told The Star.
"We hope that the public will use the opportunity to settle any outstanding summonses."
However, there are six types of summonses that are excluded from the discount
According to a post on KL JSPT's Facebook page, traffic offenders are not eligible for the 50% discount on these summonses:
- Accident summonses,
- Non-compoundable summonses,
- Summonses with current year warrant status,
- Summonses involving ongoing trials,
- Summonses issued during Ops Selamat this year, and
- Court-ordered and lorry-related summonses.
Zulkefly said the police station will be manned with sufficient personnel to handle the crowd
"We advise the public to come early to avoid any inconvenience," The Star quoted the KL JSPT chief as saying.
"Offering discounts is one of our ways to encourage the people to settle their summonses before they are blacklisted."
Zulkefly said that the last time the department offered such discounts was during the Chinese New Year celebration earlier this year
In October, Transport Minister Anthony Loke said law-abiding drivers will be able to enjoy a discount on vehicle insurance premium beginning next year:
