KUALA LUMPUR: Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has issued about four million summonses to traffic offenders involving various offences dating back to 2016.
DBKL Corporate Planning Department director Khairul Azmir Ahmad said only 104,646 summonses were settled, involving about RM3.2 million in fines, since DBKL offered a discount to traffic offenders on Sept 1.
“To avoid getting hauled up to court and being blacklisted by the Road Transport Department (JPJ), offenders are advised to pay up their compound fines before Sept 30,” he said when contacted by Bernama today.
He said the process of court action and blacklisting would come into effect immediately after the offer period ends this month.
DBKL has offered a special compound fine of RM20 to traffic offenders to pay up their summonses for meter parking and other traffic offences, from Sept 1 to Sept 30.
A compound fine of RM20 will be given for motorcycles; RM30 for cars, multi-purpose vehicles (MPVs), vans, small lorries, pickups, 4WD and SUV; and RM50 for heavy vehicles, such as lorries, buses, cranes, tractors and trailer lorries.
Nonetheless, the special rates do not apply for offences that have already been blacklisted or under court cases, court mention or have warrants of arrest issued, he said.
Payment can be made at several locations, including DBKL kiosks, post offices, DBKL mobile application and via www.myeg.com or e-bayar.
