KUALA LUMPUR: More than RM1.2bil in summonses have yet to be settled and the police are urging errant motorists to pay up before they are caught.

However, those who feel they have been unjustly issued with traffic summonses can file complaints.

“But this does not apply to the four main offences which are not negotiable – beating red lights, speeding, overtaking on double lines and illegal use of emergency lanes.

“If members of the public are not happy with the way the summonses had been issued for other offences, they can come forward and lodge a complaint,” Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan said after attending the official launch of an e-payment system in collaboration with Maybank at Mid Valley Megamall here yesterday.

The e-payment system, which began operating in September last year, is another move by the police to ensure better service to the public.

Payment can be made by just using credit or debit cards at the 85 e-payment counters based in police district headquarters and shopping malls throughout the country.

The counters are open from 8am to 5pm daily.

Musa said an increase of RM15mil in paid summonses were collected from January to early November compared to the corresponding period last year.

“We have collected RM230mil from 1.85 million summonses from January to November.
