PUTRAJAYA: Motorists will be able to pay police summons at all Road Transport Department (JPJ) counters from March 15, said JPJ director-general Datuk Solah Mat Hassan.
Solah said the move would reduce the hassle faced by offenders who had been fined by the police and the JPJ as they will no longer have to go to the respective agencies to pay.
He said it would also allow those facing problems in renewing their licences or road tax after being blacklisted by police to settle the fines at the JPJ counters and have the restriction lifted immediately.
“We hope to have the system ready to allow offenders to pay fines by JPJ at police stations by the middle of April.
“However, anyone with a blacklist dispute or unhappy with a summons will have to appeal with the issuing authority,” he told a press conference to explain the new traffic summons system which is based on the principle that “the more you delay, the more you pay”.
Solah said motorists fined more than three times within two months would have to pay double the amount of the fine.
