Due to an overwhelming response to the Royal Malaysia Police's (PDRM) new online payment platform for traffic summonses, the police have decided to extend its introductory 50% discount for four days
MyBayar Saman was launched by Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador on 25 March.
In less than a month, 708,030 users have registered an account on the platform, reported Bernama.
"As of yesterday (11 April), the 18th day of the introduction of the discount, police have collected more than RM73 million involving 659,998 summonses from the public," said Bukit Aman Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department director Azisman Alias.
"This figure includes 56,909 summonses involving payments of over RM6.28 million settled via the MyBayar Saman app."
The last day for the discount has been extended to 15 April
According to PDRM's Facebook post published last night, 12 April, the discount was supposed to end on 11 April.
However, it is worth noting that the discount does not cover major traffic offences, such as beating the red light, speeding, overtaking on double lines, using the telephone while driving, and driving on the emergency lane.
Members of the public can make payment via MyBayar Saman's website or mobile application
