Kuantan, Dec 14: The Road Transport Department (RTD) will be holding briefing sessions on the implementation of the Automated Enforcement System (AES) in all districts throughout Pahang to provide in-depth understanding of the system.
Pahang RTD Director, Datuk Zakaria Man said the briefing session was required considering the negative perception on the system.
“With the briefing session held throughout the state, I am confident the people would understand the importance of AES and accept its implementation,” he told reporters after attending the first AES briefing session here today.
He said RTD had identified 59 locations to install AES in Pahang in which seven were at traffic lights and 52 for speed limit.
He said among the locations were Kilometer 50 of Jalan Kuantan-Kemaman, KM28 of Jalan Temerloh-Bahau, KM 345 Jalan Raub-Kuala Lipis, KM 35 Jalan Lipis-Merapoh and KM 99 Jalan Kuantan-Segamat.
Other locations, he said were KM 113 Jalan Kuantan-Kuala Lumpur, KM 3 Jalan Kuantan-Maran, KM 60 Jalan Pekan-Nenasi-Rompin, Jalan Karak to Kuala Pilah and Jalan Perkampungan Felda Triang 1.
According to Zakaria, the AES unit however will be moved to another location if the accident rate in the original spot was under control, depending on the decision of the Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research (Miros).
The briefing session was attended by 150 participants comprising representatives of government and private sectors and non-governmental organisations. – BERNAMA
