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.
