KUALA LUMPUR: There is no restriction in the use of detection devices by motorists to beat the Automated Enforcement System (AES), said Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Abdul Rahim Bakri.
"We cannot stop anyone from using gadgets to beat the AES.
"That is why the system is transparent and there is no restriction on the use of detection devices," he said when answering a question raised by Tan Sri Shahrir Abdul Samad (BN-Johor Bahru) when winding up the budget speech for his ministry Wednesday.
He noted the transparency of the AES system was evident as the locations of the camera were made known to the public.
"The system (AES) is transparent as the locations of the cameras are known and available on the website for those interested to know.
"There are even warning signs put up two-to-three kilometers before the cameras locations," he said, adding that the mobile phones GPS systems would be able to determine the location of the cameras.
