Recently I got a DBKL traffic compound for not displaying a parking ticket when I parked my car during office hours in Kuala Lumpur.
At first I tried not to feel too bad about it, but I took a closer look at the DBKL parking saman and it said I had to pay RM100. My heart sank.
I searched online regarding where to pay DBKL Summon, Rayuan Kompaun DBKL and DBKL Saman Discount but I couldn’t find any information.
Here’s what I learned, and I hope to share with the rest of you who may be looking for the same information.
To Pay Or Not to Pay
The first question to ask yourself is, do you want to pay or just ignore the DBKL Kompaun?
Some people say that they’ve never paid a single saman because no action can be taken against them.
On the other hand, some people cannot sleep if they have something like that pending.
From what I understand, failure to settle the compound will mean DBKL can take legal action against you.
So the answer to this question is yes you should pay.
But I guess if you don’t pay, there isn’t much that could happen to you or your car. Unless you have some future dealings with DBKL (like if your car got towed or something).
You might ask, “if I don’t want to pay DBKL saman, can I renew my road tax?” Yes, for now the two systems are not linked so you are not barred from renewing your road tax.
How Much to Pay
If you settle the saman quickly (I think within 14 days) you will only have to pay half the price, which is RM50.
You don’t need to go to any counter rayuan or go the DBKL head office in Jalan Raja Laut. At first I was confused by this web page.
For parking offenses, any branch will do. The DBKL head office is maybe for more serious offense or non-parking related offense.
Where to Settle DBKL Compound
You can pay the DBKL saman at any DBKL branch.
Check out www.dbkl.gov.my for the DBKL branch office address and contact numbers.
They are open Mon – Fri (8am to 5pm) and every 2nd, 4th and 5th Saturday (8am to 1pm).
There used to be an option to pay online at MyEG, but when I wrote this the service was down for maintenance.
The next day, I had to take time off work due to tyre puncture (talk about bad fortune happening to my car) so after fixing the tyre I went over to TTDI branch.
After making a few rounds I found a car park. I saw the DBKL officer prowling so I paid for a parking ticket this time and walked to the DBKL branch.
There wasn’t anybody else there so I just walked to the counter and gave the makcik my DBKL kompaun.
She took a look at it, typed something in the computer and I saw on the display that I needed to pay RM50.
I forked out the cash, she printed a receipt and that’s it. I didn’t even say a word and all done in less than a minute.
