Over RM20 mil collected from AES summons


(The Sun) – To date, summons worth more than RM20 million has been collected from motorists caught on the Automated Enforcement System (AES) cameras nationwide, the Transport Ministry disclosed at the Dewan Rakyat today.

The ministry in its written reply stated that there are a total of 673,339 summons issued to 628,045 motorists for speeding and 45,294 for running the red light.

“The prosecution of the summons is halted temporarily due to the government’s decision to study the AES implementation thoroughly.

“However, the postponement of the prosecution does not affect the implementation of AES and issuing of summons for errant motorists,” the ministry said in response to Lim Lip Eng (DAP-Segambut).

He had asked the ministry to state the contents of the AES agreement and the summons issued to date.

The ministry had stated that the terms and conditions in the agreement are classified as secret and thus cannot be revealed in the Dewan.

The ministry also stated that some 1,079 AES cameras have not been installed yet, pending location identification from the Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research.
