State covers two traffic cameras


SHAH ALAM: The Selangor government yesterday decided to "cover" two Automated Enforcement System (AES) cameras in the state on Friday.

Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim said the decision was made after the Transport Ministry allegedly failed to respond to letters sent by the respective local councils asking the ministry to follow procedure and apply for a development order to install the cameras.

"We have passed the first stage, which was to write letters. The second is to cover the cameras so that it will not function and if there is still no application by the Transport Ministry within 14 days, we will make several decisions, including the possibility of dismantling the cameras," he said after presenting appointment letters to some 400 village chiefs yesterday.

Earlier, state executive councillor in charge of local government Ronnie Liu said the speed cameras, placed at the Km6.6 of the South Klang Valley Expressway and at the Km301.6 of the North-South Expressway, would be removed tomorrow.
