KUCHING, April 18: People with traffic summonses issued before Jan 1, 2023 can settle it at a special rate of only RM50 from April 21 to May 21.

This was announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim today as the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) will be offering a special rate to settle traffic summonses for a one month period.

“Any summons can be settled at this special rate of RM50, but this special rate is not applicable to traffic summonses issued in 2023.

“Nevertheless, the PDRM is committed to continue ensuring road safety at optimal level, especially during the festive season,” he said in a statement when delivering a special address at Putrajaya which was broadcast live through RTM today.

To ensure smooth traffic flow during Hari Raya Aidilfitri festive holiday this year, Anwar emphasised that the police will implement Ops Lancar today and tomorrow (April 19), focusing on areas which are prone to traffic jams and congestions.

“On the other hand, Ops Selamat will be launched on April 20 for a period of seven days with the theme ‘Rumah Selamat, Selamat Sampai ke Destinasi’ (Safe Home, Reach Destination Safely).

“For this purpose, PDRM will also work with other agencies including Rela (People’s Voluntary Corps) and the Civil Defence Force (APM) to ensure ‘hotspots’ routes such as entrances and exits at the toll plazas, would not be congested,” he added. — DayakDaily
