If there is one thing that all drivers dread facing the most, it’s receiving a traffic fine. And more often than most, many motorists tend to make a point of putting off on paying their fines till the very last minute, or even forget to pay it off at all.
Well if you’ve recently been slapped with a fine or have been delaying the payment on long outstanding ones that you still owe to the Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department of the Royal Malaysian Police, then you may want to take note of this news.
KL Traffic Police announces 50% discounts on certain fines until January 12th
