KUALA LUMPUR — Nov. 28, 2017: Motorists with unpaid summonses under the Automated Awareness Safety (Awas) System will face court action beginning early next year.
Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Ab. Aziz Kaprawi told the Dewan Rakyat today that this action will be taken against those with outstanding summonses issued after last May 1.
Following this decision, the Road Transport Department is preparing to bring all errant offenders to court.
“Currently the compound is RM150 but once the case is brought to court, the minimum fine will increase to RM300,” said Aziz in reply to Datuk Mahfuz Omar (PAS-Pokok Sena) on the implementation date for the Automated Enforcement System (AES) offenders to be hauled to court.
However, Aziz said the government was suspending action to those issued with AES summonses from 2012 to April this year. — Bernama
