Speed trap or ‘samam ekor’ or ‘tail summon’ is really sick… especially if you are not aware of the speed limit on that route. Imagine this… you’ve been driving 100 km/h everyday thinking the speed limit of that route is 100 km/h.

Then 3 months later you received a summon… your very first traffic summon of your whole life… through the post office… yes, the summon is sent to you through a registered mail… the summon said you have exceeded the 90 km/h speed limit on the route… dammm… now you realize the speed limit is only 90 km/h. OK, never mind, let’s just be a good citizen… comply the speed limit from that day and pay the summon too… and great, they even give you 50% discount for paying the summon from the RM300.

But two weeks letter, you received another registered mail… and this time, there are 7 summons inside!!! Holly craps… the total is RM1,650!!!

If they have stopped me immediately on my first offence and informed me about the speed limit of that route, I would have not accumulated those 7 summons continuously!!! So I got very upset…. I did not pay the summons…  until today!!!… that was at the end of 2006 when I received all the summons.

But now, they are giving us dateline… if summons are not paid by 1st March 2011, there will be no more discount and those who are renewing their road tax will not be able to do it… they need to clear all their summons first!!!

So, I check my summon through the online service a few days ago… I want to see how much discount I get from those 7 summons… but now, instead of 7 summons, now I have 10 summons!!!… craps… with a total of RM2,550!!!… and after discount, I still have to pay RM1,260… meaning, tomorrow I’m gonna waste RM1,260 for the 10 summons… that’s about $400 man… with that amount I can get lots of stuff… including foods… dammm… I’m gonna need to apply for payday loans just for these… and I still need a lot  more coz I’ll be outstation next week… I need some mercy here man… 😛
