Cameras for traffic offences

Come September, more than 1,000 cameras will “keep watch” on roads across the country under the Automated Enforcement System (AES).

Eye on the road: A camera is seen in Putrajaya as part of the AES test in over 10 locations.

There will be 566 speed cameras, 265 traffic light cameras and 250 mobile cameras (for places with inadequate infrastructure for installing a camera).

The AES is able to detect those who drive above the speed limit or beat the red light. There will be a 12mb image to indicate the time, date and location of the offence. Once the AES is launched, errant road users will receive summonses within two weeks of the offence being committed “while it is still fresh in their minds,” according to Road Transport Department director-general Datuk Solah Mat Hassan.

He also said that the police would use the AES to track down criminals and to control traffic.
