ABSTRACT
The author offers views about the newly implemented Automated Enforcement System (AES) in Malaysia. According to the author, the AES boosts the effectiveness of traffic enforcement through a system that works 24/7. The author also claims that the AES aims to increase the Perception of Being Caught (POBC) rate among Malaysian road users, thus curbing the accident rate. The author adds there should not be any fuss over AES should people aspire to become a civilized and cultured society.
