The "eye in the sky" system to catch errant motorists and speeding cars will be installed throughout the length of the North-South Expressway and at selected locations around Kuala Lumpur and Shah Alam, Utusan Malaysia reported.
Road Transport Department enforcement chief Salim Parlan told the paper, however, this would be carried out in phases with the initial stage already imposed during the recent festive period.
He said the automatic enforcement system (AES) would have cameras monitoring the traffic flow and recording the speed of vehicles that use public roads in the areas concerned as well as along the highway.
"The information will be relayed to the parent controlling centre, which will identify vehicles that breach traffic regulations," he said, adding that enforcement officers will then trace the drivers or owners.
"The AES has proven its worth in disciplining motorists and road users and this in turn has reduced road accidents and deaths," he said, adding that it had been in use for a long time in Australia, the United States, Europe, China and South Korea.
