Have outstanding summonses in Petaling Jaya? You’d better get them settled quickly, as from March next year, traffic offenders who fail to do so will be barred by the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) from renewing their road taxes, according to The Star.

The English-language daily reports that the council will submit details of the offenders to the Road Transport Department (JPJ), which will then bar the offending car owners. PJ mayor Mohd Azizi Mohd Zain said that MBPJ received approval from JPJ last month.

Azizi added that it will offer an 80% discount on summonses until February 29, in order to encourage offenders to settle summonses before the deadline. It is reported that MBPJ has so far racked up 4.1 million unpaid traffic summonses, worth some RM100 million.
