The police mobile speed trap cameras will be used in tandem with the proposed enforcement of the controversial Automated Enforcement System (AES), said Deputy Home Minister Datuk Wira Abu Seman Yusop.
"As accidents are prevalent, all relevant agencies must be involved in monitoring traffic and carry out their duties to solve the problem," he said when replying to a supplementary question by Mohd Firdaus Jaafar (PAS-Jerai).
He also revealed that the police had issued 180,062 postal notices to errant road users during Ops Selamat, conducted during the Hari Raya Aidilfitri holidays.
"The notice was issued to determine the identity and address of the road users," he said, adding that the police had also issued 61,191 summonses during the period.
On another matter, Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said the headline of a report "Lim: Respect the law and pay AES summonses" was inaccurate and misleading.
He said he had stressed at the press conference that he was against the implementation of the AES and did "not at any time say that people should pay the summons".
Lim had commented on the call by PAS vice-president Mahfuz Omar for the public to ignore the AES summons because it was unjust.
"While I expressed sympathy with Mahfuz's call, I stopped short of supporting the move because as a government leader, I cannot be asking people to flout the law by tearing up their traffic summonses," said Lim in a statement yesterday.
