Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has collected RM2.84 million in traffic compound fines from 130,927 compound notices as of last Sunday, with a special discounted rate offered for payment since December 1 last year, according to a Bernama report.

There have been 3.2 million outstanding compound notices last year, and the public was advised to take advantage of the special discounted rate, DBKL said in a statement. “The failure to pay the compound will result in court action and warrant of arrest for the purpose of blacklisting the offenders,” it said.

Additionally, a total of 4,459 offenders have been blacklisted by the Road Transport Department (JPJ). A special traffic compound rate of RM10 from December 1 last year until February 28 is being offered by DBKL.

For unpaid traffic compounds from 2007 till 2011, the charge is only RM10 per compound, while offences committed from 2012 till 2014, offenders will be charged RM20 per compound; offences from 2015 onwards incur a compound of RM30, according to the report.

Last month, it was reported that the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) sought the assistance of JPJ to blacklist 1,400 motorists for failing to settle their outstanding traffic compounds.
