I’ve overheard over the radio recently that the Majlis Bandaraya Petaling Jaya (MBPJ) of the local council of Petaling Jaya, launched its 50% deduction of its summonses or fines campaign.
As far as I am aware, the above authority does give the public this generous offer once in a year. The general public, especially those drivers who have committed traffic offences and have yet settle their outstanding summonses of fines, should take the opportunity to settle their dues soon.
Do run over to MBPJ office in Petaling Jaya to settle you dues immediately. For you information, the discounted 50% offer is valid only for 2 months.
Local council like MBPJ and Majlis Perbandaran Klang (MPK) and Majlis Perbandaran Subang Jaya (MPSJ) as a matter of fact face problems in the collection of traffic offences. The above councils dislike hauling drivers to courts and such action is best avoided wherever possible.
Yearly discounted rates for the collection of traffic fines benefit both the local councils in question and drivers as a whole. With the economic slowdown currently affecting the nation and the recent implementation of GST, I believe drivers should not allow MBPJ’s offer to go to naught.
Beside MBPJ’s generous offer, yet another local council, the Majlis Perbandaran Klang (MPK), likewise has also launched its discounted rate offer as well.
In fact, MPK has bettered MBPJ’s offer!
While MBPJ offered only 50% rebate to traffic wrong doers, MPK slashed all fines and summonses to a low RM15.00! The duration for all payments will however last for only 1 months.
So what about it, all drivers of Klang and Selangor as well. Dig into your records. Do you still have old traffic summonses to settle?
If you do, the MPK office is where you can settle the outstanding fines. It is located at the Town Council Building in front of the Dewan Hamzah.
Let me tell you that just a month ago, yours sincerely went to the Town Council Building above to settled an outstanding summons for RM10. It took me less than 15 minutes to end the above predicament.
MBPJ and MPK generous and thoughtful considerations towards drivers should rightfully be accorded the public’s appreciation.
Besides, drivers of both the above mentioned council should be wary of their driving antics and refrain from committing traffic offences in the future.
Drive carefully, the next time around. Let’s ensure no traffic offences are committed wherever possible.
