Go on, double park summore: DBKL collected RM4.6 million in traffic fines this year

Keep parking where you shouldn’t – Kuala Lumpur City Hall is making a mint off of compound parking fines, collecting RM4.572 million since just this January. 

The fines were collected from a total of 807,531 compound notices issued. 

Since 2007, DBKL has issued 5.4 million compound notices for traffic-related offences to 1.24 million people, according to Mayor Ahmad Phesal Talib. 

“We are working with the Road Transport Department (RTD) on blacklisting those who refuse to settle their fines despite repeated reminders to do so,” he said on Monday, as reported by The Sun Daily‘s Melati A Jalil. 

DBKL’s introduction of the Traffic Special Discount programme in August has resulted in City Hall collecting RM639,760 in outstanding arrears. 

Under the programme, vehicle owners who have not settled their DBKL compound fines have until December 31 to do so.
