KUALA LUMPUR: The public will have a chance to settle their summonses at a 50% discount during the Kuala Lumpur Traffic Police’s “Meet the Customers Day”.
Kuala Lumpur Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department chief Asst Comm Zulkefly Yahya (pic) said the 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 yesterday.
Among the types not eligible for the 50% discount are non-compoundable summonses and those attached to ongoing trials 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 celebration 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 said sufficient police staff would be on duty at its KL headquarters located at Balai Polis Trafik, Jalan Tun H.S. Lee on both days.
“We advise the public to come early to avoid any inconvenience.
“Offering discounts is one of our ways to encourage the people to settle their summonses before they are blacklisted, ” said ACP Zulkefly.
