Cops offering 50% ‘Chinese New Year discounts’ for traffic summonses

The public will have a chance to enjoy a 50% discount for offenders to settle their outstanding traffic summonses from January 18 to February 1.

The campaign is to encourage traffic offenders to settle their summons during the festive season. At a recent press conference, Bukit Aman Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department director – Datuk Azisman Alias said it is also in conjunction with the police’s plans for 2020. “For this year, the police would emphasize e-payments that can be made online via MyEG and Rilex.com for any party, negating the need for long queues,” he said in a statement.

 

According to Alias, there were 5,763 reported cases of fatal crashes last year compared to 5,870 cases the year before.

“This is the JSPT’s (Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department) key performance index, where we have reduced fatal accidents by 107 cases or 1.8%. Although the number is small, this is our KPI, and we expect this number to reduce every year,” he added.

 

If you are getting behind the wheel this festive season, please remember to drive safely and make sure your vehicle is in good shape for travel. Doing so will help protect your road trips from accidents, avoidable car trouble or distractions behind the wheel.
