PUTRAJAYA: Road users who have received Automated Enforcement System (AES) summonses after April 15 have been urged to settle immediately or risk court action.
Road Transport Department (JPJ) director-general Datuk Seri Nadzri Siron said those who fail to pay their RM150 compound face a maximum fine of RM2,000 if found guilty by the court.
“It’s better to pay the compound than to be brought to court and face the maximum fine,” Nadzri said at a press conference after the department’s monthly assembly.
Nadzri said at present, the only two offences that fall under AES are speeding and running the red light.
Commenting on the AES cameras that capture images of vehicles from behind instead of the front, Nadzri said such cameras are only available at certain locations, based on suitability.
“When we capture images that way, we are able to identify the car make as well as its registration number,” he said, adding that there were currently 21 AES cameras located at various hot spots in the country.
Earlier, Nadzri witnessed the signing of a memorandum of understanding between JPJ and the Skills Development Department under the Human Resources Ministry.
Under the agreement, the two departments will cooperate in human capital development in the road transport sector. — Bernama
