The Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) has extended its 80% discount offer on outstanding traffic summonses until 31 December

Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Tan Sri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani said this is due to the very encouraging response from the public to settle their unpaid summonses.

According to New Straits Times, he revealed that almost 2.3 million traffic summonses have been settled nationwide as of noon on Saturday, 11 December, with a total collection of RM109 million.

Acryl Sani said the extension is to avoid crowds gathering and to give the public more time to make their payments

"Previously, the PDRM traffic counter in Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC) had to be shut down due to the overwhelming number of people who came to settle their summonses," he said at a press conference on Sunday, 12 December.

"This posed a big challenge to PDRM to regulate the public in terms of complying with the set standard operating procedures (SOPs)."

He said the police also received reports that the summons payment website and mobile app, MyBayar Saman, could not be accessed due to high online traffic.

Many came to pay their outstanding summonses at the 100-Day Malaysian Family Aspiration event at KLCC on 10 December.
