After a disaster of an attempt to celebrate “100 Aspiration Days of the Malaysia Family”, the Royal Malaysian Police announced that Malaysians can now pay their “80% off” discounted traffic summons in more locations, including Maybank ATM machines. Previously, you were only able to pay the summons at the KL Convention Centre, State Offices, Urban Transformation Centres (UTC), and through their online portal.
In case you need a little reminder of what’s going on, the Malaysian police announced that people can get up to 80% discounts off summons starting from 9 December until 12 December 2021. 80% discounts were for people in the Federal Territory and Putrajaya, while 70% discounts were for people in other states.
But on 9 December 2021, the more convenient online portal crashed—possibly due to too many people trying to pay off their summons. KL Convention Centre, the first announced location for paying off discounted summons, was also reportedly filled with “thousands of people“. The government was then accused of double standards in enforcing Covid-19 curbs and attracted a fine of RM1,000.
Today, the Malaysian Police added Malaysian post offices, as well as Maybank ATMs as places where you can pay your discounted fines. This might be more convenient, and less likely to form a crowd since there are many more Maybank ATMs around in the country. They have also extended the discount until 31 December 2021.
How to pay your discounted summons at a Maybank ATM
One of us got an outstanding summon of RM300 for speeding and was able to get an 80% discount through the Maybank ATM. Here’s how they did it:
- In the main menu, select “PAYBILLS”
- Select “PDRM SUMMONS PAYMENT”
- Enter your IC Number
- The summons that are tied to your IC Number will show up at the discounted rate
- Select the summons to pay
Currently, JPJ’s online portal now works normally, so you can pay your discounted summons online right now. But if for some reason it doesn’t work again, there’s always your nearby Maybank ATM as the next convenient place.
