Umno Youth proposes deferment of AES implementation

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 30 — Umno Youth wants the government to defer implementation of the Automatic Enforcement System (AES).
Its head Khairy Jamaluddin (picture) said a review of the system was necessary to rectify weaknesses in it.
“The system itself is very good but from feedback, we found that there are too many weaknesses that need to be rectified, among them, location and its practicality in certain areas.
“It isn’t that we are not in favour of the AES; in fact we fully support it as it can discipline road users. We only want to ensure that the people would not be encumbered by the weaknesses if it is implemented now,” he told reporters after chairing Umno Youth’s executive committee meeting at Putra World Trade Centre here today.
Khairy said the government should also organise campaigns to educate the public on the necessity of the system.
“It is important that the public understand the system clearly as it can save their lives, besides preventing the opposition from playing with the issue to frighten the people,” he said.
Meanwhile, he said Umno Youth would also be activating its machinery in all its 191 divisions across the country to distribute forms for the BR1M 2.0 aid to eligible recipients.
“We will also help to submit the forms to the Inland Revenue Board to make it easier for recipients
In KANGAR, Perlis Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Md Isa Sabu also urged the government to provide clear explanation to the people on the AES to make them understand that it was  to ensure drivers were discplined while on the roads.
“It (AES) is a good move but more time is needed to explain its benefits so that there is no misunderstanding on the implementation of the system,” he told reporters after attending an Aidiladha function organised by the Perlis Menteri Besar’s Office here. — Bernama
