Pay early if you want to pay less, traffic offenders told

Bukit Aman has urged motorists to settle their summonses early to avoid paying the maximum amount. Bukit Aman Traffic Investigation and Enforcement director SAC Datuk Mahamad Akhir Darus said they recently introduced the concept “the later you pay, the more you pay”.

“This means automatically, you pay 50% of the maximum compound depending on when you settle your summonses.

“For example, for a speeding offence, the maximum compound is RM300 but if you pay within 30 days you only pay RM150.

“If you pay within the next 30 days you end up paying RM200 and if you pay after a two-month period, you end up paying the full amount of RM300,” he said in a press statement yesterday.

Motorists can settle their summonses at district traffic police counters, post offices, Maybank ATMs or via portals and  They can also check traffic summons via SMS.

SAC Mohamad urged motorists not to pay to individuals claiming to offer discounts of up to 80%.

“We are only offering the maximum discount of 50% automatically and it is with the hope that offenders settle their summonses according to the schedule,” he added.
