KUALA LUMPUR: Summonses which are to be paid in court are not eligible for the special rate of RM50 announced by Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim yesterday.
Bukit Aman traffic investigation and enforcement department director Mat Kasim Karim said the offer announced yesterday was different from the up to 60% discount on summonses offered in conjunction with the 216th Police Day recently.
He said the Police Day discount earlier did not cover some summonses. Among them were accident cases, non-compoundable offences, beating the red light and summonses with warrant status.
“But the special summons rate announced by the prime minister yesterday is different and is lower than the 60% discount for each summons.”
Mat Kasim said summonses that are pending settlement in court do not come under the purview of the Royal Malaysia Police. All other summonses issued for violations in 2022 and earlier are eligible to be settled at the special rate of RM50, he added.
Mat Kasim said members of the public can settle their summonses online via the MyBayar Saman application.
They can also do so in person at all traffic counters at police contingent and district headquarters nationwide from Friday (April 21) till May 21.
Mat Kasim said police were also not limiting the total number of traffic summonses which can be paid by the people during this period and welcomed them to settle all summonses they have received.
