SHAH ALAM: An expert in intelligent transport systems, who studied the effectiveness of the Automated Enforcement System (AES), says speed cameras can reduce the road fatality rate at killer stretches by at least 35%.
Universiti Teknologi Mara Surveying Science and Geomatics Department lecturer Dr Khoiri Mohd Dimyati, who has almost 30 years’ experience in public transportation and enforcement systems, said speed cameras in other countries were already successful in reducing road fatalities by enhancing the perception of motorists that they would be booked for speeding.
He said studies in countries using AES showed that the system succeeded in reducing accidents and related deaths by as much as 70%.
“I believe AES can reduce our road fatalities by 30% to 35%. If the AES can work in other countries, it can work here too,” he said in an interview.
Dr Khoiry served as Transport Ministry and Road Transport Department adviser for the implementation of the AES between 2008 and 2011 when the ministry was studying ways to reduce the number of road accidents and fatalities.
The average road fatality rate in Malaysia is 17.7 deaths daily.
Dr Khoiri, who was also technical adviser to the Government on amendments to the Road Transport Act 1967, said the problem with Malaysian drivers was attitude “as they do not seem to appreciate life”.
He said the Government had spent a lot of time and money to create better roads and conduct educational awareness on road safety but these had not improved drivers’ attitude or reduced the number of accidents.
Dr Khoiry also said lack of enforcement contributed to the perception that drivers would not be caught for flouting the law.
The AES went online on Sept 23, with 14 cameras installed in Perak, Selangor, Putrajaya and Ku­ala Lum­pur with more cameras to be installed at 817 black spots nationwide next year.
Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho had said the other locations would be determined by the Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research.
