Oh dear, another opposition politician jumping to defence the criminals on the road…
(It’s about time – a simple flow on how the AES – Automated Enforcement System works. It covers speeding & beating the red light offences but what about other types of offences like road hogging, cutting in and out of traffic without any proper indication, riding around without wearing any helmet? When we can have a similar automated enforcement system for it? Image source: http://www.skyscrapercity.com / TheStar)
Let’s recap something that was highlighted way before the holidays:-
Traffic offenders will no longer be given discounts on police summons fines beginning from Monday.
According to an internal directive issued to all traffic police divisions today, traffic offenders will have to pay the compound fines according to the computer generated summonses and appeals for discounts or waivers will no longer be entertained.
The Government want to give a dim hope to criminals on the road to continue their crime is beyond any reasonable comprehension.
(Traffic offenders are not only a major nuisance on the road but they are also dangerous to others. I don’t see the point of giving leniency towards repeated offenders. Image source: http://www.cartoonstock.com)
(It is already bad for Pakatan Rakyat politicians for already losing the State of Perak no thanks to self-centred frogs, do you want to lose the support of the people too ah? Stop supporting the criminals otherwise, you will never gain the trust of the people. Image source: Malaysiakini)
(When it comes to enforcement agencies, we have the means to start things like the ability to issue summons but we sometimes lack the means to end things. We lack the enforcement of the law. Photo by Erik Mclean from Pexels)
(We need more policemen on the road to catch and summon road offenders. But what’s the point of giving the road offenders summons when at the end of the day, it is not enforced and the summons ends up nothing but waste papers? Photo by Kindel Media from Pexels)
(A simple question – if there are 2 situations where the fine amount is different – one is RM300 and another RM1,000, in which situation you think will make this offender who is using the emergency lane to cut queue to think twice? Photo by Erik Mclean from Pexels)
