11 Oct: AES fines are priced at RM150 if paid within 14 days

Traffic offenders caught under the Automated Enforcement System (AES) from Sept 18 onwards are eligible for fines as low as RM150 — provided they pay up within 14 days.

The new rates for exceeding the speed limit and beating the red light will be RM150 for the first 14 days, increasing to RM200 after 15 days and RM300 after 30 days.

Ismail said if a summons is still not settled three months after issuance, the offender will be taken to court.

Ismail said the discounted rates, however, were not applicable to those caught speeding more than 40kph above the posted speed limit. “If the speed limit is 70kph, and you were caught doing 111kph, the fine is a flat rate of RM300.

Road Transport Department (RTD) director-general Datuk Ismail Ahmad said the new rates would only be enforced for summonses issued after Sept 18, while the summonses prior to the date would follow the old rate of RM300.
