Caught in the act!

Read this star news. Ok! It might be outdated but it’s a good thing to implement. It can start in states with the higher numbers of accident. In Penang also, there's many reckless drivers around here be it a motorists, and other vehicle’s drivers, busses, cars, etc. I have seen motorists just dash out from the red traffic light sign out of nowhere, and other dangerous random acts, etc2.

IPOH: The Cabinet has given the green light to implement the Automated Enforcement System to track traffic offenders and bad drivers, said Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Abdul Rahim Bakri.

He said the system, to be introduced in September, would cover all states in stages.

He said a private company would install and operate the system and it would be electronically linked to the Road Transport Department (JPJ).

Abdul Rahim said digital cameras would be set up along accident-prone areas, expressways and state roads round-the-clock to capture offences committed by motorists.

“The captured images would then be registered in the JPJ system and summonses will be issued to the offender,” Abdul Rahim told reporters after a briefing with JPJ personnel here yesterday.

He said the Automated Enforce- ment System used a blacklist mechanism that would automatically bar offenders who fail to settle traffic summonses issued by the system.

“The cameras will be in plain sight. When motorists are being observed, they will be more careful on the road,” Abdul Rahim said.

The implementation of the Automated Enforcement System was announced early this year by Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat as a way to minimise accidents.
