Quite a great number of Malaysian still do not know how to check their traffics summons through SMS and Internet nowadays. For me, this is another good way for us to check our summon information since it is hassle free and save our travel cost.
Discount on Traffic Summons
Previously, I am actually quite surprised to know how to get a discount on a traffic summons. In the other words, if you commit a traffic offense, that offense will cost you less if you pay up sooner. However, you need to know that the traffics summons will have the base rate that you will pay.
Let say, if you did not tied up your seat belt then you be fined RM300 (non-car driver), RM200 (car driver). For motorcyclist, they will be fined RM200 if they did not tied up their helmet. For those traffic offenders, you can try to pay your summons as soon as possible since it may save you some money. There will have 2 types of discount on traffics summons schemes:
i) If you pay your traffic summons within the compound date, then you can enjoy auto appeal rate of 50%.
ii) If you pay their traffic summons after compound date but before the court date then they can enjoy auto appeal rate of 30%.
However, not all types of traffic summons you can get a discount. For those traffic offense that you cannot get an appeal are as following:
(i) Traffic light offence
(ii) Accident cases
(iii) Warrant of arrest
So, you can take this advantage to pay your summons earlier else you have no choice but to pay the summons amount in full after 1 month.
How To Check Your Traffic Summons?
You can try to check your traffic summons through SMS. It will cost you 15 cent to send and only 50 cent for each SMS reply.
If you want to check a summary of your summons, then you can type in:
POLIS SAMAN (your car number with no space) or POLIS SAMAN (IC number with no space) and send it to 32728.
If you want to check a full details of all summons, then you can type in:
POLIS SAMAN (your car number with no space) SEMUA or POLIS SAMAN (IC number with no space) SEMUA and send it to 32728. The reply that you receive is based on how many
outstanding traffic summons you have incurred.
The reply is in Bahasa Melayu, if you get the key word TIADA means that you do not have any summons. If you do, it will display WHERE, WHEN and AMOUNT.

Do You Think Good To Have Discount on Traffic Summons?
Personally feel that a discount only encourages negotiating and becomes a motivation for more corruption case. What do you think?
