Department director Zulkarnain Yasin said the amount included payments collected for various traffic offences including expired road tax, offences under the Automated Awareness Security System and driving without a valid driving licence.
“A total of RM575,143 was collected in August while the remaining RM184,398 in traffic summonses payment was recorded in September,” he said after a Road Safety Advocacy programme with food delivery riders at the state JPJ headquarters here.

He said the programme was in collaboration with three companies providing food delivery services in Terengganu.
“Through the operation codenamed Ops Food Rider conducted by JPJ from Sept 1 to 10, many food delivery riders on duty were found to have violated the law and traffic rules,” he added. – Bernama
