KL motorists rejoice, because Christmas came early this year. The Kuala Lumpur mayor announced earlier this week that the huge discounts were given as a way to encourage motorists to pay off their summonses.
He mentioned that all traffic summonses between 2007-2011 can be settled for RM10, whereas those between 2012 to 2014 can be settled for RM20. Lastly, traffic summonses issued after 2015 can be settled for RM30.
This is good news for KL-ites, especially considering how there has been 5.4 million unpaid summonses since 2007.
The KL mayor spoke at an event in the City Hall HQ, mentioning, “Taking into consideration the current economy, we want to help city folks settle their traffic tickets. By right, we can take legal action against those who have more than five summonses outstanding, but we are giving them a chance to settle their dues.”
