Kong: AES to continue operating especially during CNY
KUALA LUMPUR: All the 14 Automated Enforcement System (AES) cameras would continue operating as usual, especially during the Chinese New Year period, says Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha.
He said the cameras would support the traffic enforcement programmes by agencies such as the Road Transport Department (JPJ) and the police.
“Since the AES programme was launched, there has been a change in the attitude of drivers who travel through the AES installation zones, especially in the accident-prone roads.
“This shows that the AES has been effective in saving the lives of motorists,” he said in a statement Wednesday.
Kong said around 1,500 JPJ officers would be deployed at various places while traffic safety campaigns would be held by the Road Safety Department (JKJR) throughout the festive period.
“JPJ officers will also go undercover and act as bus passengers to enforce the traffic regulations against bus operators.
“They will also carry out inspections at bus depots and terminals and at accident hotspots during the festive period,” he added.
