DBKL is offering heavily discounted compounds for traffic offences until February 2017. — Picture by Choo ChKUALA LUMPUR, Dec 1 — The Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) is offering heavily discounted compounds for traffic offences starting today till the end of February next year.

Mayor Datuk Seri Mhd Amin Nordin Abd Aziz said the move was part of DBKL’s bid to encourage traffic offenders to pay their summons.

“This is a very special offer,” he told a news conference here after attending an appreciation ceremony for enforcement officers from several government agencies.

For all unpaid traffic compounds from 2007 till 2011, the charge is only RM10 per compound, while those accrued from 2012 till 2014 is charged at RM20 per compound and those from 2015 to the present is RM30.

Mhd Amin said that there are 5.4 million compound notices which remain unpaid to date.

He said that those who failed to pay would be blacklisted, and risked having their cars clamped.

He said DBKL was taking strict action now because city people here have been showing disdain for the law compared to those in Singapore or Europe.

“So we have to take small, stern action by clamping etc, until they respect the law,” he added.
