KUALA LUMPUR: Almost one million traffic offence notices issued by Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) from Jan 1 to Oct 31 this year have not been paid, says Datuk Dr Loga Bala Mohan.
The Federal Territories Deputy Minister told the Dewan Negara here Thursday that 1,111,268 traffic offence notices were issued during that period, but only 116,418 were paid, resulting in a collection of RM7,182,110.
He said some 994,850 notices were unpaid.
"For 2013, a total of 1,102,440 notices were issued and only 185,919 were paid with collection of RM8,480,509, leaving 916,521 notices unpaid.
"For 2014, some 1,153,925 notices were issued and only 147,026 notices were paid with collection of RM9,823,404. Another 1,006,899 notices were unpaid," he said in reply to a question from Senator Dr Hou Kok Chung.
Replying to a supplementary question from Senator Dr Syed Husin Ali, he said the Ministry would find a solution to the critical parking problem in the city.
He attributed the parking problem to increase in urban population and affordability to own more than one car. - Bernama
