So today I got a parking summon and was wondering how to pay it. Checked Myeg and rilek and came back with no results which was fair enough as I got the ticket this morning
But then I smsed 32728 and typed Polis saman (vehicle no) and it said i had a speeding fine recorded in January which cost rm200 however I can't see it online and have not received it in the mail . So what should I do ?
Also what's the easiest way to pay for the parking fine I committed today ?
Ps I live in KL
The easiest way is to let it marinate for a month or two. Why are you so anxious to pay your summons?
Don't know about today, but last time, it takes sometime for the summon to get into the system. Once the cop write it on paper, he has to bring it back to the police station, where he, or someone else have to key it in. If you check too early, it's simply not in the system yet.
But I don't know why the sms system will have your record but not the website.
Anyway, sometimes these summons drop through the cracks. Perhaps there's a stack somewhere they forget to key in. Perhaps sometimes they key in the wrong car number. Don't know exactly. What I know is sometimes the summons just dissapear.
Over the years, my family and myself have received quite a few of these. For a variety of reasons including traffic and parking offenses. About 1/3rd of them had dissapeared. When we checked, it's not in their records anywhere. If it no longer exists, no need to pay.
The staff at the counter told me this.
I found this out early on. I had lost the original, and tried to get a copy. They couldn't find it. I asked them how to pay? They said without the original, or the copy in their records, there's no way. Cannot pay. No need to pay yet. They mentioned boxes of these summons that were not yet keyed in. They had a back-log. Come back in a few months they say. Months turns into years. The oldest of
my dissapeared summons are more than 10 years old. I assume their typists are really incompetent and made so many mistakes keying in the IC or car number wrong. Or there's a lot of summons that were simply never keyed in.This post has been edited by dkk: Feb 5 2012, 06:48 AM
