AES: It's An Education System

Much has been said about the Automated Enforcement System or AES in short.

Politicians have also staged wars as seen in the papers and also on the cyber world regarding such an implementation as seen here and here.

It's baffling to how such a system has received so much flak - despite acknowledging that I will curse it the minute I get a summon if I return to my hometown in Taiping.

But I know that if I speed above the limit, I'm bound to be penalised. Period.

Interestingly, those how lambast the implementation of AES are mostly the same people who claim they can lower the prices of petrol and cars.

Do read AES: The underlying truth and The Pokok Sena tragedy.

Also, the cops will not need to deal with such characters as seen here.

If one has travelled extensively, one would realise how drivers are so afraid of the 'AES' in their respective countries as they are penalised through their demerit system which results the revocation of licences or even jail time.

I remember the long conversation I had with a taxi driver about speed cameras and the demerit system during my ride from Paris to the  Charles De Gaulle Airporttwo years ago. Read here for a better understanding of the French system.

Meanwhile, those in UK call it SPECS.

"The SPECS system is so efficient and user friendly that Manchester CTO processed 2,500 offences in 6 man-hours"

And here is a table summarising the automated enforcement laws in each US state.

My take on the AES -  it's An Education System.

HD says: I believe there are better things to look into, like the SUKE highway passing through many housing areas in Ampang and the KL Outer Ring Road that will cut through the Ampang Forest Reserve.

What went wrong with KL SEA Games?

145 gold medals.
It's the best Team Malaysia has ever achieved since the inception of the SEAP Games in1959.
The 29th edition of the SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur ended yesterday. The opening ceremony dazzled those at the stands and viewers at home while the performances during the closing ceremony yesterday jogged plenty of musical memories to many.
Our athletes, the real superheroes, brought smiles through their heroic display. They made everyday a happy day.
Kudos to the officials - from the coaches, the National Sports Institute and National Sports Council - for their hard work in ensuring our athletes perform to their best.
But it was not all memorable.

'World fashion disaster' in KL

World Fashion Week Asia 2017 ended over the weekend.

And the launch on Friday at Palace of the Golden Horses at Mines Resort City just outside Kuala Lumpur turned out to be a forgettable night.


It was poorly organised.

Just as many are trying to get over the nightmare witnessed throughout the KL SEA Games, the organiser of World Fashion Week Asia 2017 has made it look like Malaysians seem to have lost it when it comes to hosting major events and hospitality.

Here's why.

Royal protocol ignored

1. The Sultanah of Terengganu Sultanah Nur Zahirah was invited to grace the event.
    a. There was no holding room for the Sultanah and VIPs accompanying her.
    b. The Sultanah was invited on stage without anyone accompanying her there (a big NO NO if anyone knows protocol involving royalty).
    c. The event dragged on till 11.30pm, way past the cut off point of the very many events I've attended with members of the royal family present.
   d. The Sultanah was forced to walk all t…

Klang run 'illegal', says Sports Commissioner

UPDATE (Dec 11; 11.58am): Sporting events approved by Sports Commissioner's Office will be posted on the Youth and Sports Ministry's website starting Dec 14, as revealed by the Sports Commissioner in her statement today. I'm glad the last point of my observation (as per posting right below) has been addressed.


UPDATE (10.57pm): A Twitter user had sent me a link by the organiser of the Klang Heritage Marathon 2017. It states that the marathon has been "postponed to Oct 14, 2018" and that they have been victims of fake news and will lodge reports with the authorities against materials with elements of defamation or fake news. Read the full statement, posted on Dec 2, here.
