Three e-ways to help JPJ improve delivery system

TEMERLOH: The Road Transport Department (JPJ) is working on three “e-ways” to improve its delivery system. 

These new electronic applications will cover: 

·E-HEALTH for commercial vehicle drivers applying for or renewing their goods driving licence and public service vehicles, to enable drivers to get their medical certificates in a more systematic way; 

·E-KIOSK, for drivers to check on the status of, as well as renew, their road tax and driving licence; and, 

·E-ENFORCEMENT, using speed cameras in accident prone areas to nab traffic offenders. 

The new electronic applications would be launched this year, JPJ director-general Datuk Emran Kadir said at the opening of the new JPJ office here by Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Azlan Sultan Abu Bakar yesterday. 

Emran said the system for the e-health application was already in place and would be launched soon. 

“We are in the final stage of the trial. Once we are fully satisfied, we will go ahead with the launch,” he said. 

“With e-health, we are confident there will not be any more cases of fraud involving medical reports for those applying for commercial vehicle licences.”  

Emran said medical reports of the applicants would be sent straight to the JPJ to eradicate cases of manipulation.  

On the e-kiosk application, he said the public would be able to renew their road tax and driving licence without having to go to the counters. 

“It will function exactly like an ATM, with payment made via cash or credit card,” he said. 

E-enforcement, Emran said, would involve hidden closed-circuit TVs in selected accident- prone roads and highways to monitor the traffic situation. 

He said those caught committing traffic offences would be fined.
