Motorists can be taken to court for failing to pay traffic summonses

Serious offence: MBPJ enforcement officer Nor Fitri Ramli issues a compound for a motorist who parked in a non-designated parking bay in the Section 52 commercial area. — filepic

STARTING from June, motorists will have to take Petaling Jaya City Council’s (MBPJ) traffic regulations seriously or risk being blacklisted or even face legal action.
In a move to check errant motorists, MBPJ has applied to the Transport Ministry to empower it to issue summonses for traffic offences.
In mid-August last year, MBPJ made its third application to the Road Transport Department (JPJ) to give it wider traffic powers and traffic warden status for its current batch of 50 officers, who had been managing traffic.
JPJ approved the application early this year.
