Road accidents increase due to 700,000 more cars each year

He said "The number increases the risk of accidents as everyone wants their own vehicle to the point of not placing importance on public transportation as compared to developed countries like South Korea," He also added that the government has approved the implementation of the AES (Automated Enforcement Agency) to help reduce road accidents. This is quite a popular system currently deployed in developed countries like the United Kingdom, United States and Australia.

Abdul Rahim added that "The AES is a system where cameras are installed at high-accident prone areas to monitor speeding and record driving violations. For a start, 600-700 cameras will be installed in stages in areas identified in Peninsular Malaysia,"
