Kuala Lumpur City Hall is offering a special compound rate for traffic offenders in September. Director of DBKL’s Corporate Planning Department Khairul Azmir Ahmad says that this is an opportunity for traffic offenders to settle their compounds to avoid being blacklisted by the Road Transport Department.
This temporary rate is set at RM20 for motorcycles; RM30 for cars, vans, and small lorries; and RM50 for heavy vehicles. It will run from the 1st until the 30th of September. Giving Malaysians plenty of time to settle their outstanding compounds.
That said, this special rate does not include those who have already been blacklisted blacklisted or have court cases waiting against them.
With this, Malaysians are being left off the hook for traffic offences once again. The Transport Ministry announced that all AES summons would be forgiven two weeks ago. Cancelling some 3.1 million unpaid summons; potentially costing the government up to RM430 million in income.
