Pay more for delay, under new system for less serious traffic offences

New structure to be used for all offences under Road Transport Act and involve all enforcement agencies

PUTRAJAYA: The more you delay, the more you pay - this is the principle that has been approved by the Cabinet in the restructuring and streamlining of fines issued for traffic offences deemed less serious.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha said the new structure would be used for all offences under the Road Transport Act, and involve all enforcement agencies, including local authorities.

He said under the restructured system that will affect all fines issued from March 1, traffic offences will be divided into four categories, based on the seriousness of the offences.

"Fines for offences under the first category will be maintained at RM300 (with no discounts), even if settled within 60 days as they involve offences contributing to a high accident and fatality rate," he told reporters after attending his ministry's Chinese New Year open house here Wednesday.

These offences included speeding, beating traffic lights, overtaking on double lines, tailgating, queue-jumping, overtaking in the emergency lanes and using mobile phones while driving.

"The amount motorists will have to pay for offences under the three other categories will depend on how soon they are settled and how serious the offences are," he said.

However, motorcycles below 250cc would be subjected to lower fines for the three categories, he added.

The second category under the new structure will involve active offences closely linked to negative driving habits and technical offences involving the vehicle that can lead to accidents.

Fines under this category will be RM100, RM150 and RM250 for the small-capacity motorcycles and RM150, RM200 and RM300 for all other vehicles if they are paid within the first 15 days, between 16 and 30 days and between 31 and 60 days respectively.

The third category will involve passive offences closely linked to technical offences involving the vehicles that can increase the risk of accidents to other motorists or leave the vehicle itself no longer roadworthy.

Fines under this category will be RM50, RM100 and RM150 for motorcycles below 250cc and RM100, RM150 and RM250 for all other vehicles if they are paid within the first 15 days, between 16 and 30 days and between 31 and 60 days respectively.

The last category involves offences not posing a threat of an accident, like failing to park properly. The fines will be RM40, RM70 and RM120 for motorcycles below 250cc and RM70, RM120 and RM150 for all other vehicles if they are paid within the first 15 days, between 16 and 30 days and between 31 and 60 days respectively.

"The amount will be multiplied if the offences are committed three times or more within a two-month period under the first, second and third categories or any combination of the categories," Kong said, adding that the offences will be filed in court if the fines are not settled within 60-days of being issued.

He also said motorists will not be issued demerit points if they settle outstanding fines within three months.

Pay more if you delay’system to ensure motorists clear summo

Postby admin » Thu Feb 17, 2011 3:14 am

PUTRAJAYA: Motorists will have reason to pay their traffic summonses promptly under a restructured system based on the principle of “the more you delay, the more you pay”.

The Cabinet has approved the revised system under the Road Transport Act, which covers summonses for offences that do not contribute to high accident and fatality rate, said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha.

Motorists would also not be issued with demerit points if they settle outstanding fines within three months, he added.

The restructured system will cover fines issued by all enforcement agencies, including the local councils and Road Transport Department (JPJ), from March 1, said Kong.

The offences would be divided into four categories, based on the seriousness of the offences, with compounds ranging from RM40 to a maximum of RM300.

There will not be any reduction in amount for the category involving serious offences which cause accidents and deaths.

“Fines will be maintained at RM300 (with no discounts) even if settled within 60 days,” he told reporters after attending his ministry’s Chinese New Year open house here yesterday.

These offences include speeding; beating the traffic lights, overtaking on double lines, tailgating, queue jumping, overtaking in the emergency lanes and using mobile phones while driving.

“The fines for offences under the three other categories will depend on how quickly motorists pay their summonses, and how serious the offences are,” he said.

Kong added that motorcycles below 250cc would be subjected to lower fines.

The payment period is divided into three stages. The first is from day one of the offence to the 15th day; the second from day 16-30, and the final timeframe from the 31st day to the 60th day.

For offences due to bad driving habits which increase the risk of accidents, a motorist will be fined RM150 if he pays within the first 15 days; RM200 (16 to 30 days) and RM300 (31 to 60 days) respectively.

For small capacity motorcycles, the fines are RM100, RM150 and RM250 for the same time frame.

“The amount will be multiplied if offences are committed three times or more within two months,” Kong said.

Pay more if you delay settling traffic summonses

Postby admin » Thu Feb 17, 2011 3:16 am

KUALA LUMPUR: From March 1, motorists can forget about delaying payment of traffic summonses in the hope of massive discounts during campaigns organised by the police or other authorities.

The Cabinet has agreed to restructure the system for paying traffic summonses based on the principle that “the more you delay, the more you pay”, said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha.

Motorists will also not be slapped with demerit points if they settle outstanding summonses within three months.

Depending on the category of the offence, motorists can save as much as RM150 for each summons if they choose to pay within 15 days of getting it, instead of delaying the payment up to the 60th day.

Fixed fines for traffic offences

Postby admin » Thu Feb 17, 2011 3:58 pm

Stiffer penalties for late payments, serial offenders

PUTRAJAYA: Traffic compounds issued by the traffic police, Road Transport Department and local councils will be standardised from March 1, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha said yesterday.

He said the cabinet had agreed to restructure the compound on summonses issued under the Road Transport Act 1987 for vehicles under 250cc such as motorcycles, the type of machine and seriousness of offences and charging more for delayed payment. Those committing offences three or more times within two months would have to pay double the amount of fine.

Offences are divided into four categories.

These are: l Those contributing to accidents and traffic congestion and offences associated with taxi service; l Active offences associated with the driver’s negative behaviour and technical fault in vehicles that can contribute to accidents; l Passive offences associated with technical fault in vehicles that can increase the risk of accidents and cause harm to others and also offences that render the vehicle unsafe for use; and l Minor offences other than those in the first, second and third category.

“The compound for summonses issued after March 1 will be a minimum of RM40 and a maximum of RM300,” Kong told a press conference after attending the ministry’s Chinese New Year open house.

Motorcycles under 250cc would be given a lower compound of RM40 compared with other vehicles for offences in the first category.

Kong said offenders with summonses were not liable under the Motor Vehicles (Demerit Points) Penalty System (Kejara) if their outstanding dues were paid within three m o n t h s.

“One of the reasons why they refuse to settle their compounds is because they fear they will incur demerit points and possible licence suspension or cancellation.” He said a driving licence with 15 demerit points would be suspended.

This also applied to probational licences with 10 demerit p o i n t s.

If all the demerit points were incurred for the first time, the licence would be suspended for one month, it is three months for the second time and six months for the third time.
