Great news everyone! Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Datuk Seri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani, announced on Twitter that you can get up to 80% discount off of your police compound and summons until the end of the year.

The bad news is you’ll probably need to get out of the house and go somewhere full of people to pay for it.

The Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) offers an online payment option of course. There’s the MyBayar Saman portal and app. However, it seems to always buckle under heavy traffic.  

It crashed when the discount was announced earlier this month, leading to thousands of people flooding the KL Convention centre to pay their discounted summons.

Just a day after the discount period expansion was announced, it is down again, this time it claims to be for maintenance. The app isn’t working either.

We even tried MyEG but it just takes us to MyBayar Saman. 

There’s No Other Choice But To Go Out

So what are your options if you want to pay your police summons and get that sweet discount? 

You may be tempted to use mySikap, JPJ’s online portal, but that’s mainly for JPJ compounds and summons. 

You should still check your summons status with JPJ and pay them if you have any. But be warned, the registration process for the site can be complicated.

Every other option that PDRM recommends requires you to get out of the house. 

You could pay your police summons at the traffic payment counter at your nearest contingent or district police headquarters, a Post Office, or a Maybank ATM. 

In all cases, unless you are lucky enough to have a drive-through counter at your nearest police headquarters or post office, you’ll have to deal with queues and crowds.
