In conjunction with the upcoming Independence Day celebrations, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong announced through his social media channel that the road transport department (JPJ) and the Land Public Transport Agency (APAD, previously known as SPAD) will be offering 70% discounts on all summonses for the entire month of August.
The discounts will be applicable for all compoundable summonses issued by the JPJ and APAD under the Road Transport Act 1987 (Act 333), Commercial Vehicles Licensing Board Act 1987 (Act 334) and Land Public Transport Act 2010(Act 715).
These acts cover offenses such as unroadworthy vehicles, driving under the influence of alcohol, as well as the AWAS (or better known as AES) cameras, with compounds ranging from RM40 to RM300. Police-issued summonses are not eligible for this discount campaign.
The offer will also be extended to road users who have previously been blacklisted by the JPJ, although these individuals will have to go to a JPJ office for a documentation process before the payment can be made.
Otherwise, payments can be made at all JPJ offices as well as other online channels including the mySikap JPJ portal, Kiosk JPJ, as well as JPJ Mobile.
