PDRM collected RM1.3 million in traffic fines in conjunction with Unity Week 2024 in JB


The Ministry of Home Affairs (KDN) announced that the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) has collected a total of RM1318240.00 in outstanding traffic fines. This was announced in conjunction with the national Unity Week 2024 celebration which took place from May 23 to 26 in Angsana Johor Bahru. According to the statistics on the third day of the program, PDRM managed to collect the highest amount of traffic fines through the event.

In addition, the high collection of traffic fines is certainly contributed by the 50% discount offered by PDRM. "The PDRM summons discount of 50% received a warm welcome and made it easier for the public to check and pay summons. Congratulations to the PDRM for this initiative and thanks to the visitors who have settled the suit," said KDN through its official Facebook.

Does this mean that KDN will continue to give the 'green light' to PDRM to give discounts on traffic summonses? This could be a probability. What's more, this discount offering campaign often gets a warm welcome from the public to pay off these traffic lawsuit arrears. In fact, PDRM itself often offers this discount through various events throughout the country.

In contrast to the Road Transport Department (JPJ), where the Ministry of Transport (MOT) insists that there is no policy of discounting suits by JPJ. This matter was once voiced by MOT Minister, Anthony Loke who said the summons was aimed to educate. Plus, giving discount was also unfair to those who paid it early.

Moreover, Loke added that JPJ will not compromise on this issue and the cabinet and Chief Secretary Tan Sri Mohd Zuki Ali have been informed about the matter. Hopefully, everything will go smoothly.
