It seems that we Malaysians have a lot of excess money that we don’t mind ‘giving’ away to the government.
It was a reported
that a staggering total of over 140,000 motorists
have been caught by the Automated Enforcement System cameras (AES)
for various offences in the past three months
, that many for such a short amount of time, eh?
were reportedly issued ever since the Automated Awareness Safety System (Awas) was implemented on 15 April.
The summons were issued for various offences. The offence with the highest amount of summons – 129,781
were issued for speeding
were issued to those who beat the red light
The summons issued range from RM150 to RM300
So far, there are a total of 21 AES cameras throughout Malaysia; eight in Perak
, three in Kuala Lumpur
, two in Putrajaya
, and Terengganu
, and one in Kelantan
Awas also practises a demerit point system, and those who accumulate the maximum amount of 20 points
will be issued a warning letter or even worse, get their licenses suspended or revoked.
So folks, before you think you’re Vin Diesel or an extra for Fast and Furious
while driving on the highway, think again about the amount of money you’re about to pay for your summonses.
