KUALA LUMPUR: The operation hours for the traffic summons discount counters at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium have been extended until 9pm on saturday (Dec 9) due to an encouraging response from visitors.
Bukit Aman Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department director Datuk Mohd Azman Ahmad Sapri said over 18,000 traffic summonses were settled on Friday (Dec 8), while 3,015 summonses were paid as of noon on Saturday.
"Yesterday, the counters were opened from 9am to 4pm, but due to the overwhelming response, we decided to extend the operation hours until 9pm today," he told reporters here.
He said that the police had set up 14 cash payment counters, besides providing visitors with the option to pay summonses online using a QR code.
"I’m very satisfied with the set-up. There are sufficient seatings and tables as well as air-conditioning to provide comfort to visitors waiting for their turns to settle the summonses, which can take up to two hours," he added.
On whether the police would expand the 50% traffic summons discount offer beyond the programme, Mohd Azman explained that such a decision would require approval from the Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Razarudin Husain.
The three-day Madani Government One Year Anniversary Programme, which started on Friday, focused on three components, namely the achievement showcase, the people’s touchpoint service, and the People’s Well-being Initiatives.
The highlight of the programme would be the closing ceremony officiated by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim on Sunday (Dec 10). - Bernama
