LELONG: Malaysia Gives Limited Time Special Offer to Encourage Errant Motorists to Pay Traffic Summons


Wah this one really lelong ah!

If you’ve kana saman by mata in Malaysia and still haven’t paid yet, this is perhaps the best time to do so.

(Ed’s translation: This is an opportune time to pay for the traffic summons you have accumulated in Malaysia, if you haven’t yet paid for them.)

The offer is valid till the end of February 2018.

This is how much you would save if you just forked out that RM$20, or S$7 (assuming you only have ONE saman lah).

(1) Using mobile phones or other devices while driving – RM$300
(2) Not wearing seat belts – RM$300
(3) Speeding – RM$300
(4) Disobeying traffic lights – RM$300

And the list goes on.

For all unpaid traffic compounds from 2007 till 2011, the charge is only RM$10 per compound,

Those accrued from 2012 till 2014 is charged at RM$20 per compound and those from 2015 to the present is RM$30.

This isn’t the first time that Malaysia is offering “discounts” to encourage motorists to pay up.

It gave a similar discount last year too.

At the time, Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) Mayor Datuk Seri Mhd Amin Nordin Abd Aziz called the move a “very special offer” during a press conference.

He said that as of 2017, there were 5.4 million compound notices which remained unpaid.
