Aziz Kaprawi: 100 AES cameras to be installed next year

BATU PAHAT: About 100 Automated Enforcement System (AES) cameras will be installed at strategic locations nationwide next year, says Datuk Ab Aziz Kaprawi.
The Deputy Transport Minister said that the cameras, installed along highways and federal roads, would help to ensure that road users comply with traffic rules at all times as it was a 24-hour enforcement system.
"The AES cameras will be added as we are targeting a 50% reduction in the accident rate by 2020, as per an international agreement" Ab Aziz told reporters during his Aidilfitri open house at Kampung Parit Jelutong, Parit Raja, here Wednesday.
The Sri Gading MP said that at present, there were about 50 AES cameras installed nationwide.
He said all countries had been urged to reduce their accident rates by 50% by the year 2020, which posed a big challenge to Malaysia as it was among those with the highest accident rate.
"The AES is the best method since it is impartial. The cameras do not recognise people and will record all vehicles," he said.
Ab Aziz also advised road users returning home after Hari Raya celebrations to drive carefully and avoid undesirable incidents, adding that roads would be safer if everyone followed traffic rules. – Bernama
