Transport Minister: No need for legal amendments to implement AES

SHAH ALAM: There is no need for legal amendments to implement the Automated Enforcement System (AES), said acting Transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein.

He said a meeting was held recently with all stakeholders involved with the AES and three to four options had been put forward on the implementation of the system.

The stakeholders included the Attorney-General, police and concessionaire as well as the views of the public.

Hishammuddin admitted that there were some weaknesses in the AES when it was first launched, but the intention of introducing the system should continue to be highlighted.

"It is not necessary to amend the law. Isssues which had been raised, whether positive or negative, should not divert our attention from the intention (of AES). 

"Maybe there were some restrictions or weaknesses, but the priority is road safety," he told reporters after launching the new design of the Malaysian driving licence at the Road Transport Department (JPJ) here.

The introduction of the AES late last year had been controversial. The AES captures pictures and video images of cars speeding or jumping a red light in targeted areas and issues summonses accordingly to offenders.

Early this year, the Attorney-General's Chambers decided to freeze all court proceedings related to summonses issued under the AES after legal concerns were raised by certain quarters.
