KUALA LUMPUR: Police are offering a 50% discount for traffic offenders to settle their outstanding summonses online from Jan 18 to Feb 1, said Bukit Aman Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department director Datuk Azisman Alias.

He said this year, police would emphasise e-payments for any party that wants to settle their outstanding summonses, especially during this festive season.

"But this time, I try to give special discount of 50%. We never did online payment before which would not require people to queue for hours to pay.

"You can make payments online via MyEG and," he told reporters here on Monday.

According to Azisman, 5,763 cases of fatal crashes were reported last year compared to 5,870 cases in 2018.

"This is the department's key performance index where we have reduced fatal accidents by 107 cases or 1.8%. Although the number is small, this is our KPI, and we expect this number to reduce every year," he added.
