Let’s recap something that was highlighted way before the holidays:-
Traffic offenders will no longer be given discounts on police summons fines beginning from Monday.
According to an internal directive issued to all traffic police divisions today, traffic offenders will have to pay the compound fines according to the computer generated summonses and appeals for discounts or waivers will no longer be entertained.

(A simple question – if there are 2 situations where the fine amount is different – one is RM300 and another RM1,000, in which situation you think will make this offender who is using the emergency lane to cut queue to think twice? Photo by Erik Mclean from Pexels)
