RM3m in traffic fines collected
KUALA LUMPUR: The Kuala Lumpur Traffic Enforcement and Investigation Department (TEID) has collected more than RM3 million after offering a 50 per cent discount on outstanding traffic summonses.
Its chief, Assistant Commissioner Zulkefly Yahya, said 32,462 summonses were settled during the discount period from Nov 7 to Nov 9.
“The response was overwhelming. We had a limited number of counters and the queue was long. We will improve on that.”
The discount, he said, did not apply to those involved in traffic accidents, those with arrest warrants issued against them, cases in court, summonses issued during Op Selamat, summonses with a court status or summonses involving heavy vehicles.
