Not to be viewed as rude, Penang RTD director Datuk Hassan Yaccob said his department would brief the state government relating to this implementation although the department had the right on federal roads.
"If the state government still did not agree to the installation of AES, we will install the system in the federal roads, and they can't stop (us) because the street is under federal government," he said at an 'Op Selamat Chinese New Year Road Safety Campaign' press conference here Friday.
Newspapers recently reported that Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng did not want AES cameras to be installed in the state, and that he would remove them if they were installed.
Hassan said 59 accident-prone locations had been identified by the department for the installation of AES cameras in the state.
Of the number, 39 AES cameras would be installed along major roads to detect the speed limit while 18 would be placed at traffic lights.
