It is a Malaysian malaise, for sure. Putting off things, including important ones, until the eleventh hour.
Last weekend when Pos Malaysia counters were opened nationwide for people to pay their fines and so on, not so many turned up. But on Monday, the last day, there was mayhem. Also made worse by a systems breakdown.
Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein announced a "reprieve" -- an extension of a week.
Traffic counters nationwide are now open (until March 10) from 8am to 10pm daily.
Let's see how the crowd is on that last day.
So, go now, if you have not settled your fines.
