According to a report on Bernama news wire service, the Ministry of Transport (MOT) has announced that the Automatic Enforcement System (AES) will be extended to the whole country especially at accident-prone locations identified in a study done by the Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research (Miros).
The report cited Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Abdul Aziz Kaprawi saying, “Currently, we are still in discussion with the relevant parties to improve the terms of the AES agreement which takes into account the views and feedback from various quarters before it can be extended nationwide. The AES is still on at 14 locations in Perak, Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya involving 10 static cameras and four mobile cameras,”
The announcement follows our earlier report about the government rolling out 350 more AES locations nationwide by the first quarter of 2016 under the second phase of the plan.
Apart from expanding the AES operation with a new plan implementation and operation model, the government is said to do rebranding of the system to address public perception of it.
“Through the rebranding, the Armed Forces Fund Board (LTAT) will be managing the static cameras while the Royal Malaysian Police will take over the mobile cameras after this,” He added.
