Since the government started offering reduced pricing on summons on April 21, about 1.3 million past-due traffic tickets have been paid.
After 16 days of the discount being offered, the reaction has been positive, according to Datuk Seri Mat Kasim Karim, director of the Federal Police Traffic Enforcement and Investigation Department (TEID).
“TEID’s goal was to make sure that people took advantage of this opportunity because the majority of past-due summonses from 2022 and earlier qualify for this special rate. The public can settle summonses via a variety of platforms until May 21 at the discounted amount of just RM50, he said when reached, according to NST.
As stated by Kasim, the general public has several options for paying their summonses:
- myBayar PDRM app
- All TEID counters
- Post offices
In addition, they can pay their summonses via Maybank’s automated teller machines. “The government wants to assist the people by lessening the financial responsibilities they are carrying, and this discount of up to 86% is a part of that effort,” he said.
A number of government initiatives were unveiled on April 18 by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim in an effort to assist the populace in easing their financial worries. A reduced rate for summonses had also been mentioned.
