In conjunction with the National Month, the Road Transport Department (JPJ) had announced that they are offering a discount up to 70% on all compoundable summonses from 18 August to 16 September.
In the statement, JPJ said that the summonses that could not be compounded were cases that are still under mention in the courts, including those with the status of arrest warrants or trial.
“The reduction is for all summonses issued under the Road Transport Act 1987 (Act 333), Commercial Vehicles Licensing Board Act 1987 (Act 334) as well as other rules and orders under it, including cases that are still blacklisted.”
“The discount on the summonses is based on the current compound rates fixed in the JPJ’s mySIKAP system.” they said.
Meanwhile, the offer was for summonses that were still active and are valid, provided payment was made within the offer period.
This means that all active summonses and compounds dated before 16 September are applicable for the discount.
The summonses can be paid at all JPJ office or branches, Urban Transformation Centre (UTC) outlets, kiosks and online via the mySIKAP JPJ’s website here.
For those who were blacklisted, the offenders are required to be present at a JPJ office (branch or headquarters) for documentation process before payment can be made.
They added that the discount was offered to reduce the financial burden of the people who have been badly affected by the economic downturn brought by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Hurry up and settle your compounds now!
