Well I of course have gotten more summons…
So I went to pay them seen as though I was around in the day-time due my car being in the workshop (they finally called me to tell me I could take it in to the windscreen changed), procrastination to the max, only happened because a good samaritan that works in insurance gave them a kick in the ass..
So off I go to Balai Polis, the traffic HQ some more in PJ State..
I got there, checked my summons (1 compound, 2 speeding) and found out that one was during an Operasi (Operation) so it couldn’t be discounted.
The other two could, but after going between room 9 and room 13 numerous times, I found the guy that dealt with Rayuan (Appeals) was only in Thursday 9-11am or something stupid like that..
Not suprising he only has to work two hours a week really, when you hear the rest of the story..
I settled the summon that couldn’t be discounted as there was no point messing with that one. I then found out to make an appeal you have to write a letter, a pathetic, whiny begging letter, I mean wtf, give people some face please.
In some stations they even have template letters you can just copy from for the appeal..It goes something like this..Dear Sir/Madam,
I am writing to appeal if you would be kind enough to give a discount on the summons referenced as XX-123456, I have a low salary and have no money to pay the full amount. I would be very grateful if you could discount the summons and would greatly appreciate your kindness and goodwill. Blah blah, lick some more anus, blah blah, thank you yeah yeah..
So then I go back to the counter with my sappy letters and a wad of cash to settle the summons, the lady tells me they can’t deal with appeals, please go to counter 9…
So I go, the guy tells me again the person who deals with appeals is only here on Thursday morning, ARGH..
But he keeps popping out, eventually he says he will kau tim (Take care of) the summons for us. He takes the summons and 250 bucks and disappears inside the office for quite some time..300 summons reduced to 150 150 summons reduced to 100
When I saw the final receipts..
The 300 actually reduced to 100, and the 150 to 50..so he pocketed 100 bucks for 10 minutes work, I’m guessing it’s normal there as the receipt book was full of receipts for 50 bucks, and I doubt ANYONE actually pays that little…
So 2 hours a week, settle 20 summons say, that’s 1000 bucks for 2 hours work…
4 times a month, that’s 4000 cash on top of your salary. Kinda fucked up don’t you think?
Oh well, at least they are paid, now I just need the monkeys at the finance firm to actually do some work for once and settle the loan, and re-open it in my name..ARGH!
