Guan Eng: Despite AES, people should still pay their summonses 

(The Star) – Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said despite his opposition to the Automated Enforcement System (AES), people should still pay their summonses.

“As a senior government officer, I would want the Transport Ministry to explain to us why they want to implement the AES.

“But these are summonses that have been issued under the law, and the law has to be respected,” said Lim who is also the DAP secretary-general.

He was referring to the call by PAS vice-president and Pokok Sena MP Datuk Mahfuz Omar to ignore the AES summonses issued by the Road Transport Department and to contest them in court.

Lim was speaking at a press conference after opening the Selangor DAP annual convention here Sunday.

To date, the Pakatan Rakyat-led state governments in Penang, Selangor, Kedah and Kelantan have decided to defer the implementation of the AES cameras in their states, affecting 331 cameras out of the 831 set up nationwide.
