Traffic fines to be paid electronically

The Ministry of Interior is setting up a system that will allow traffic fines to be paid electronically at banks and money transfer services. Run Roth Veasna, director of the department of traffic and order police, said the system could be up and running by the end of the year at Acleda, Wing and True Money branches.

Fines currently have to be paid at police stations. Roth Veasna added that the electronic system would make it easier for police to check whether fines had been paid, even if the offence was committed in a different province.

Affiliated Network for Social Accountability of Cambodia executive director San Chey praised the program, but said the occurrence of road users negotiating with police to lower their fines also needed to be addressed.
