SHAH ALAM: An expert in intelligent transport systems, who studied the effectiveness of the Automated Enforcement System (AES), says speed cameras can reduce the road fatality rate at killer stretches by at least 35%.
Universiti Teknologi Mara Surveying Science and Geomatics Department lecturer Dr Khoiri Mohd Dimyati, who has almost 30 years’ experience in public transportation and enforcement systems, said speed cameras in other countries were already successful in reducing road fatalities by enhancing the perception of motorists that they would be booked for speeding.
He said studies in countries using AES showed that the system succeeded in reducing accidents and related deaths by as much as 70%.
“I believe AES can reduce our road fatalities by 30% to 35%. If the AES can work in other countries, it can work here too,” he said in an interview.
