Waiting for the next “mega sale” to settle your summonses? Bukit Aman will not be providing any discounts to traffic offenders if Datuk Seri Noor Rashid Ibrahim has his way, The Star reports.

The Deputy Inspector-General of Police commended traffic offenders who were punctual in paying their summonses but no discounts will be offered to them as well.

“Not offering any discounts will be a form of deterrent to traffic offenders. We hope that with this awareness, they will be more careful and disciplined in the future,” he told reporters at KL Sentral last Saturday.

Federal traffic police chief Senior Asst Comm Mahamad Akhir Darus said traffic offenders should settle their summonses punctually.

“We don’t want to encourage an attitude among Malaysians where they will only pay their summonses only when there’s a discount offer. If there are no such offers in two years, they will not pay their fines in those two years. We don’t want to encourage such practices,” he said.
