PDRM offers 50 percent off traffic summonses from 18 Jan

If you’ve been putting off paying for your traffic summonses, the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) is offering a 50 percent discount for settling outstanding summonses online from 18 January to 1 February 2020.

Bukit Aman Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department (JSPT) director Datuk Azisman Alias told BERNAMA on Tuesday that the police would put emphasis on e-payments, especially during this festive season.

“You can make payments online via MyEG and Rilex.com,” he said in a special press conference in conjunction with the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) 2019 achievements and 2020 plans.

He revealed that 5,763 cases of fatal crashes were reported last year compared to 5,870 cases in 2018, a reduction of 1.8 percent. It is part of JSPT’s Key Performance Index (JPI) to reduce fatal accidents each year.

Because discounts for settling traffic summons are far and a few, it’s a great opportunity to start the new year with a clean slate. PDRM last offered discounts for traffic offences before the Christmas holidays last year.

Among the summonses eligible for 50% discounts are non-compoundable and those attached to ongoing trial, as well as those issued after accidents or during special operations namely Ops Selamat.

If you’re driving on the road this festive station, stay safe and happy journey.
