KUALA LUMPUR: The public will have have a chance to settle their traffic summonses at a 50% discount over the Christmas period.
Kuala Lumpur Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department chief Asst Comm Zulkefly Yahya (pic) said the "Meet the Customers Day" event would be held between 8.30am and 4pm on Dec 24 and Dec 26 in conjunction with the Christmas celebration.
"We are offering a 50% discount for various types of traffic summonses.
"We hope that the public will use the opportunity to settle any outstanding summonses," he said when contacted Thursday (Dec 12).
Among the summonses eligible for 50% discounts are non-compoundable and those attached to ongoing trial, as well as those issued during Ops Selamat and for accidents, he added.
ACP Zulkefly said such discounts were last offered during the Chinese New Year earlier this year.
"At that time, 1,600 people came forward to settled their summonses. We hope that more people will come forward this time," he said.
He also advised the public to come early to its KL headquarters located at Balai Polis Trafik, on Jalan Tun H. S. Lee.
"Offering discounts is one of our ways to encourage the people to settle their summonses before they are blacklisted," said ACP Zulkefly.
