Transport minister Anthony Loke has said that all prior summonses that were issued under the Automated Enforcement System (AES) will be wiped out. According to a report by The Star, drivers which were recorded by the system to exceed the speed limit will be off the hook.
The minister also said that the Cabinet has decided that effective 1 September, the government will take over full operation of the AES system from two private companies. Naturally, this means that this responsibility will be taken over by the Road Transport Department (JPJ).
There were 3.1 million unpaid summonses as of May that is worth up to RM435 million.
All summonses issued after 1 September will be collected by the JPJ and it must be paid. “There will not be any more offers or discounts,” Loke added.
