Bernama DBKL saman

Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has announced that it will be offering discounted traffic compound rates as part of its two week-long Settle DBKL Arrears campaign, which begins on August 6, Bernama reports.

From then until August 20, traffic offenders with compound arrears will only need to pay RM20 for motorcycles, RM30 for cars (as well as MPVs, pick-ups, SUVs, vans and small lorries) and RM100 for heavy vehicles to settle outstanding fines, KL mayor Datuk Seri Mohd Amin Nordin Abdul Aziz said.

“The special rates are to give traffic offenders a chance to settle their outstanding compounds. Last year, there were 1.2 million outstanding compounds valued at RM1.4 million owed by traffic offenders, and DBKL hopes the special rates will ease the process of settling their debts,” he explained.

He said payment can be made at 32 locations throughout the federal capital, adding that city folk will also be able to pay their assessment, public housing rent and market stall rent at these special counters.

In January, the council announced a similar campaign for the entire month of February in conjunction with Federal Territory Day, with discounts for vehicle offences that were originally rated from RM100 to RM300 being slashed to a flat rate of RM50 and RM30, depending on the original fine.
