Traffic demerit system to make comeback, says minister
The “Kejara” demerit points system for traffic offenders that was suspended for a comprehensive review is expected to be implemented soon after the study is completed by year-end.
Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said the new aspects being studied for Kejara included the non-redemption of demerit points after the settlement of summonses.
He said the new Kejara system should be continued with relevant improvements under the current situation.
“Earlier, the settlement of a traffic offence summons will lead to a deduction of demerit points… but this will not have an effect on delinquent motorist.
“I feel that in serious traffic offences, the driver should be given demerit points… regardless of whether he or she settles the summons or not.”
