PETALING JAYA: In a rare occasion, the Road Transport Department (JPJ) is offering a 70% discount on summonses in conjunction with the Merdeka month.
Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong said the discount will last for the whole of August.
“The discount is given to all compoundable summonses issued by JPJ and the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD, or what is now known as the Land Public Transport Agency) for offences under the Road Transport Act and Commercial Vehicles Licensing Board Act and other rules and orders under it, including cases that are still blacklisted,” he said on his Facebook page on Tuesday.
In an interview in June to mark his first 100 days in office, Dr Wee said JPJ rarely gives discounts, and had hinted back then that there may be some good news for Merdeka month.
This discount offer is not applicable for summonses issued by the police.
“The discount is applicable at all JPJ branches nationwide, including various urban transformation centres (UTC) and other payment channels such as JPJ’s mySIKAP portal, JPJ Kiosk and JPJ Mobile,” he said.
For offences that are associated with blacklists, Dr Wee said the public is required to come to the JPJ branch or state office to sort out the documentation first before payment can be made.
