KUALA LUMPUR: A three-hour thunderstorm did not discourage some 1,000 traffic offenders from lining up at the Tun H.S. Lee traffic police station to get a 50 per cent discount on summonses.

Private sector worker Nizaruddin Ahmad, 42, said he had arrived at the police station at about 2pm to settle four summonses.

“The rain started soon after I arrived. But, I stayed in the queue as I wanted to get the 50 per cent discount.

“I had checked in advance to make sure I was eligible for the discount.”

Telecommunications executive Nur Aziah Hashim, 39, who was accompanied by her husband, said: “I am not sure how many summonses I have.

“It just so happened that I am on leave today so I took the opportunity to pay my summonses.”

Police had offered the 50 per cent discount in conjunction with Deepavali celebrations.

The crowd had started queuing at 7.30am even though the counter only opened at 8.30am.

The discount offer is on until Friday.
