    Public Transport: AES Camera - trap for govt or speedsters

    AES cameras: Trap for speedsters or govt?

    Teoh El Sen

    August 27, 2012

    Would the Automated Enforcement System cameras prove to be an invaluable tool to nab traffic offenders or a big embarrassment?

    PETALING JAYA: The multi-million-ringgit Automated Enforcement System (AES) intended to nab traffic offenders has been touted as “the next big thing” by the government.

    But since it was mooted nearly a decade ago, there have been enough questions plaguing it for us to wonder if it would become the government’s “next big blunder”, and more fodder for the opposition, instead.

    AES is a system of cameras at accident-prone areas and traffic junctions which captures photos and videos of those who speed or run red lights. The system would then automatically issue summonses to traffic offenders within a fortnight.

    More than 1,000 of these cameras are set to be installed at accident “blackspots” nationwide “soon”. Of those, 566 are speed cameras, 265 traffic light cameras, and 250 are mobile units.

    Firstly, when exactly would the AES be fully up and running, catching road demons and issuing summonses?

    Going by news reports quoting officials over the years, the deadline seems to be arbitrarily changed due to reasons only a privileged few may know.

    A glaring contradiction was made recently when Deputy Transport Minister Abdul Rahim Bakri said that the AES would be used during the Hari Raya period starting Aug 12.

    A week later, however, Transport Minister Kong Cho Ha, told reporters a different story. “We haven’t actually fixed a firm date.”

    When pressed for a specific date, Kong sputtered: “Uh… this year. Before the end of this year.”

    He said that no summonses have been issued since the AES was put on a trial run in over 10 undisclosed locations in the country.

    Meanwhile, other reports quoted Road Transport Department (RTD) director-general Solah Mat Hassan as saying that the first summons must be issued by Sept 9.

    Trial run

    Aside from the conflicting statements from government officers, are there other, more grave problems or issues that the government expects from implementing the AES?

    When posed with this question, Kong had firmly replied: “No.”

    He elaborated that the cameras “have to undergo testing, certification and calibration and all that” by the Department of Standards.

    Those dozen or so cameras that have already been installed now are still running “on trial”, said Kong, and are being tested to ensure that the AES is “flawless”.

    The government needed the system to be “correctly inspected, certified to be in compliance with all the existing legal framework”.

    Asked about fears that people might use false number plates, Kong dismissed them, saying: “Actually this camera is very sensitive, we can see the face of the driver even.”

    Is what the government telling the people so far convincing and acceptable?

    RTD itself had admitted that the AES could potentially anger the rakyat. A FAQ (frequently asked question) document produced by the RTD on its website admitted that one of the risks of implementing the AES was “public outcry” as the AES would “drastically change the driving attitudes in a short period”.

    The document then noted: “However, the rakyat have the choice not to break the laws.”

    So is it merely about rakyat’s “choice” when it comes to this million-dollar project that could potentially cause angry backlash to the Barisan Nasional government, especially since the 13th general election is around the corner?

    A disaster waiting to happen

    Critics of the AES have for sometime questioned whether the government knew what it was doing. Disgruntled industry players, civil society, and politicians have asked if it was indeed a fool-proof system that cannot be manipulated.

    “The AES, as it stands, is simply a disaster waiting to happen. It will fail,” an industry source told FMT recently.

    The source, who wished anonymity, warned that the government could expect “chaos at the courts” as road users are expected to challenge the validity of summonses issued to them.

    “Kong’s explanation is weak. He says that the system is flawless. What happens if the windshield is tinted, he [driver] wears a cap or sunglasses, or if it is at night? What if it was not the owner driving the car? Vandalism is also going to be another problem.”

    He said that this was a serious issue that the government must resolve if it does not want to be embarrassed.

    “Let me ask the minister. If there were 30 cars bearing the same number plate as the car registered under your name, speeding at the same time at different highways, are you going to pay 30 summonses issued to you?”

    Social Care Foundation chief and former Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) advisory panellist Robert Phang, who has been closely monitoring these developments, also asked: “Undoubtedly, we need such a system, it is a good way forward… but one thing is very important that we need to address – will this AES stand the test of the courts? Are we Malaysians really prepared for it?”
    The AES project was mooted sometime in 2004, with the RTD visiting several countries to assess various systems. The Road Safety Masterplan 2006-2010, commissioned by the Cabinet, had recommended automatic electronic enforcement.

    There was allegedly a clamour for a piece of the contract by several well-connected parties through a closed tender “request for proposal” process (though Kong also was previously quoted as saying that it was an open tender process).

    Selective exercise

    One of the seven companies (out of an original nine) involved in the tender, Tess Capital Sdn Bhd, had in 2010 cried foul and claimed to be sidelined despite “scoring higher in accuracy” during the tender process.

    FMT had reported this, where Tess claimed that it lost despite being a “bona fide” company with locally-owned technology that was “as good as, if not better” than the system proposed by the contract winners.

    Tess had even lodged a report with the MACC, alleging abuse of power and “manipulation” by the RTD in the tender evaluation exercise for the AES. It had accused RTD of being “selective and subjective” in its 2007 live demonstration exercise of the system.

    (When Wangsa Maju MP Wee Choo Keong posed this case in Parliament, Minister in Prime Minister’s Department Nazri Abdul Aziz confirmed, late 2010, that MACC was investigating allegations of irregularities in the tender process.)

    However, RTD and the Transport Ministry have firmly maintained that the tendering and live testing process was vigorous and robust. Kong has shot down calls for a review or a re-tender.

    Subsequently, it was announced in December last year, the contract to implement the AES was awarded to two private companies – Beta Tegap Sdn Bhd and A.T.E.S. Sdn Bhd.

    Beta Tegap’s technology partner is Redflex Traffic Systems from Australia while A.T.E.S. would be using the German Jenoptik Robot.

    The contract, for an initial five years, is based on a build-operate-transfer deal, which means that the government would not be forking out a single sen. Everything is privately financed.
    The installing and operation costs – estimated to be more than RM800 million – are to be borne by the two contractors, who are entitled to share the revenue collected from the fines.

    It was reported that Beta Tegap holds the concession for the southern part of the peninsula, including Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, Negeri Sembilan, Malacca, Johor, up to Pahang, while ATES is responsible for the rest, including Sabah and Sarawak.

    Crime prevention

    While both companies are in charge of installing, operating and maintaining the cameras and control centres, RTD will be in charge of issuing the summonses.

    Under a “three-tiered remuneration scheme”, Beta Tegap and A.T.E.S. will get to recoup their expenditures through a three-tiered system paid out from a pool of settled summonses:

    Tier 1: RM16 for each of the first five million summonses issued (RM80 million).

    Tier 2: 50% of the balance of the revenue collected beyond the first five million summonses, excluding amount taken in Tier 1 and subject to maximum of RM270 million. The government gets an equal amount.

    Tier 3: 7.5% of the remaining revenue in the pool, excluding amounts received in the first two tiers. The government will get to keep the rest.

    It is understood that initially there was a second phase of the AES, where radio-frequency identification computer chips were to be embedded in licence plates.

    But that was scrapped after the proposal to revamp the number plate system received flak over concerns of privacy and costs. The government did not explain the reason for this change.

    Traffic police were reportedly also unhappy over RTD “taking over their turf”. And while the RTD said that the AES will mostly be used for its crime prevention purposes, it is still unclear if the AES will come into conflict with the police’s own current speed traps.

    Alongside questions of whether it actually works, the AES has naturally been facing allegations of cronyism from all sides, with several big names being bandied about.

    A cover story by TheEdge in April pointed out that there have been allegations that Beta Tegap was linked to MCA, though both have denied any connection to the other.

    MCA president Dr Chua Soi Lek said TheEdge was “both wrong and malicious”.

    Money-making ‘diamond mine’

    Weighing in on the case, PKR’s Selayang MP William Leong questioned whether there is link between Beta Tegap and MCA.

    He said Dr Andreas Teoh and his mother Yap Kim See @ Yap Ai Lin were shareholders in Beta Tegap and the same Teoh and his father, Arianta Alikusno, are directors of Mediharta Sdn Bhd, a company providing security hologram labels for pharmaceutical products.

    Leong drew the link by asking if it was “merely a coincidence” that the Transport Ministry and Health Ministry are both headed by MCA ministers.

    TheEdge also reported that one of the directors of A.T.E.S., Chee Chwee Cheong, is also a founding partner of Ethos Consulting, further fuelling speculations.

    Ethos is an influential boutique advisory house where Omar Mustapha is a partner.

    Omar is a former special officer to Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak, though a source told the weekly that Omar was not involved in the project.

    There have also been those who said that the AES was simply a “money-making diamond mine”, with one industry source projecting at least RM1 billion in annual revenue for the government.

    But officials quoted by TheEdge said that their projections of returns are not as high as the government’s. This was partly due to the stringent three tiered-system in their agreements as well as the unpredictable nature of the collection of summonses.

    With accusations flying fast and furious, RTD has stressed that everything is in order. The AES, it said, aims to reduce accident rates, road fatalities and generally improve safety on roads.

    There are 22 million registered vehicles in Malaysia, of which 15 million are active. Another million new vehicles are registered every year. Some 6,000 lives are reportedly lost in Malaysia anually as a result of road accidents, with an average of 18 to 19 deaths a day.

    Road accident death rate

    Speeding is the number one cause of traffic accidents. A study showed that for every one kmh increase in speed, there is a three percent increase in the incidence of injury and a five percent increase in the risk of a fatal crash.

    Statistics show that speeding is the main traffic offence committed by motorists, with almost 60% to 70% falling under the category.

    Aiming to change all that, the government said that the AES would greatly assist the current 4,000 RTD enforcement officers, and 20,000 traffic policemen.

    At present, there is only a 25% to 40% chance of motorists getting caught using the current method of mobile camera units deployed by police personnel.

    With the AES able to catch around 600 offenders daily, RTD aims to half Malaysia’s current road accident death rate of four individuals per 10,000 vehicles by 2015.

    But several politicians and parliamentarians reasoned that educating drivers would not be a priority given that private profit-making bodies are operating the AES.

    DAP’s secretary-general Lim Guan Eng expressed concerns that the companies might “abuse their power by issuing summons indiscriminately”.

    PAS vice-president and Pokok Sena MP Mahfuz Omar asked: “Why didn’t the government buy the technology from Redflex and Robot directly, instead of going through these local companies?

    “I’m sure there are some connections… the government must provide information on the background of these companies,” he said.

    ‘Enriching pockets of cronies?’
    Mahfuz was among those who criticised the amendments to the Road Transport Act 1987, purportedly to facilitate the new AES. He even formed his own NGO to protest the issuing of summonses.

    To date, about 90 countries have an AES in operation, including developed countries like the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia.

    Among other benefits, the RTD said that the 24-hour system would help officers keep track of traffic offenders round the clock, rain or shine.

    RTD has pointed out that in countries such as France, Germany, Kuwait and the UK, the system has apparently brought about a reduction of accident rates.

    However, critics referred to reports of court cases where summonses had to be refunded, quoting reports which specifically mentioned the Robot and Redflex systems.

    According to Road Safety Research Institute of Malaysia, the AES is in principle, good as it is sure, swift and severe. It would also reduce interaction, which in turn will reduce corruption.
    But Consumers Association of Subang and Shah Alam Selangor (Cassa) president Jacob George seems unconvinced that the AES has been free of corruption or cronyism.

    He said the government’s intention to “push” for the system without further consultation despite the outcry “shows that the government doesn’t care”.

    “The secretive way the government appoints companies, the allegation of foul play… Why isn’t the government responding transparently? Are we telling people corruption is part and parcel of our big procurements?

    “We call for tender accountability, but the government only gives us bits and pieces of information. Is it really concerned about public interest or just enriching the pockets of cronies?” asked George.

    Another fact that RTD had mentioned in its FAQ is that in the future, other offences that the AES might help monitor include overtaking on double-line lanes, overtaking from the left, exceeding weight limits, queue-jumping and encroaching into bus lanes.

    Though the same industry source cast doubts on the ability of the AES to perform these future “feats”, it all sounds good from the government’s end so far.
    But without factoring in many of these lingering questions and concerns that have been posed, it remains to be seen if the AES will save our lives, or be a thorn in the ruling government’s side.

    Another money-sucking scheme by UMNO bites the dust. First of all, the real cost is very much lower than what is claimed. The 17% profit margin on their inflated project cost is more like 40 to 50% profit.

    Selangor suspends AES, says RTD cannot justify speed cameras

    UPDATED @ 12:10:04 PM 09-11-2012
    November 09, 2012
    KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 9 — Selangor has barred the roll out of the controversial Automated Enforcement System (AES) to catch speeding motorists in the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) state, saying the move is unlawful.

    Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim said his state administration made the decision yesterday after meeting with the Road Transport Department (RTD).

    He said the federal government agency had failed to justify the merits of the traffic system to penalise speedsters.
    “From the briefing, the state government found that the Transport Ministry failed to get the approval to construct the structure for the AES from the local authorities.

    “Therefore, the state government will direct all PBT to inform the ministry that the installation of AES has not followed the law and will not be implemented until this matter is amended,” he said in a statement today, using the Malay initials PBT, or pihak berkuasa tempatan, to refer to the local councils.

    He added that the state government will appoint an independent body to study the system first to see if the Transport Ministry had considered all necessary procedures before deciding to introduce the AES.
    Khalid suggested a review of the concession agreement between the federal government and the two companies contracted to install and run the AES, saying the 17 per cent profit margin was unreasonable.

    He said Selangor had proposed that the money from the fines be kept in a trust to be used to fund road safety awareness programmes instead of being pooled into a consolidated account, which would be doled out to the companies in reasonable amounts and allow them to recoup the cost of installing the speed cameras..

    “By doing this, the people who pay summonses would be contributing to the nation and not help enrich businessmen,” he said.

    The two firms awarded the contract to implement the enforcement system — ATES Sdn Bhd and Beta Tegap — will spend between RM300 million and RM400 million each to set up traffic cameras at 831 “black spots” nationwide.

    Both ATES and Beta Tegap are entitled to RM16 per valid summons for the first five million issued. They will then split the remaining revenue evenly with the government up to a cap of RM270 million each.

    The firms will each receive 7.5 per cent from the remaining revenue and the government will keep the rest.

    PR parties have suggested that the companies are linked to the MCA and Umno but this has been vehemently denied.

    Apart from Selangor, the other PR-led states such as Kedah, Penang and Kelantan have said they will suspend approval for the AES.

    Several influential non-government organisations including the umbrella body representing civil servants, Cuepacs, have also opposed the enforcement, saying the system was not currently suitable.

    They also want the government to review the locations where the AES would operate.

    The unpopular system that automatically detects speeding motorists and issues fines has also seen growing resistance from Umno grassroots with a blog and Facebook account set up this week to oppose the speed cameras, which could unite voters behind the federal opposition against the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) at the 13th general election due soon.

    A number of BN politicians are also becoming worried about it becoming a major campaign issue in the general election, and want the government to suspend the AES.

    Looking inside the 'Automatic Enrichment Scandal'

    • Koon Yew Yin

    • 3:12PM Nov 11, 2012

    COMMENT Slowly but surely, the ugly side of the Automated Enforcement System (AES) is emerging and it looks like that the enrichment of a small group has been cleverly camouflaged in the name of public interest.

    Fortunately, this time around the scope for undeserved enrichment is so overwhelming and the disregard for prudent principles of transparency and accountability so obvious that even some Umno leadersare protesting.

    These late protestors from BN are way behind the curve on the issue and are jumping on the bandwagon of opposition political and public protest to prevent damage to their own election prospects but it is an indicator of how unacceptable the current AES proposal is.

    I predict that the AES will be dead in the water before long. But it is important that any suspension or abandonment of the system does not prevent the authorities and the public from having a full and open inquiry on how this particular scam has managed to get through all the responsible authorities, including the cabinet at the highest level.

    Such an inquiry is necessary to ensure that the full truth comes out, lessons are learnt and an appropriate speed deterrent system is implemented - a system that is not riddled with weaknesses and drawbacks, and does not enrich a few at the expense of the public.

    Who's responsible?

    Poor Minster of Transport, Kong Cho Ha must be having sleepless nights trying to defend the indefensible. And he must be kicking himself for foolishly putting his job on the line in repeatedly pushing for the implementation of the system.
    It is likely that Kong (right) will be made the scapegoat for this debacle.

    But let us not forget that this scam was cooked up some time ago. Various other crooks, sorry - slip of the finger, I mean cooks - as yet unnamed - were involved in the preparation of this billion dollar dish.

    According to federal estimates for the budget year 2013, the government expects an additional RM1.02 billion in revenue from AES enforcement - all this coming from the Malaysian road user.

    The origins of the outsourcing of speed cameras and speeding tickets go back to the Abdullah Badawi administration - possibly during Dr. Ling Liong Sik's time as minister of transport.

    Apparently, despite objections from some ministers who argued that enforcement should remain within the government's domain, the project was pushed through by the Transport Ministry during Chan Kong Choy's tenure.

    After five years as the transport minister, Chan stepped down officially due to health reasons in the midst of the RM4.6 billion Port Klang Free Zone scandal.

    Following Kong Choy's resignation, Ong Tee Keat was at the helm of the ministry, and the project was finalised during his time.

    Since Tee Keat has been dubbed Mr Clean by his MCA supporters, he should come clean on the AES and provide an explanation on his role in it and answer the questions raised.

    Why so much outrage?

    Firstly, there is more than a strong whiff of cronyism about the project and the way in which it has been privatised which runs against principles of responsible government and common sense.

    Allegations have been made that Ates Sdn Bhd and Beta Tegap Sdn Bhd which have been awarded the contract have strong political connections.

    According to PKR assemblyman Chang Lih Kang (right), the major shareholder of Beta Tegap Sdn Bhd is the niece of a Johor Umno assemblyman and comes from a family of "renowned Umno political figures" whose parents were previously elected to the state legislative assembly.

    "With the extraordinary connection between the largest shareholder of Beta Tegap and Umno, another instance of sheer cronyism is evident.

    "If this is not cronyism, how on earth does the government deem a dormant company without expertise in the related field is worth rewarding a lucrative AES contract?" Chang asked at a recent press conference.

    (Editor's note: Beta Tegap has responded to these claims here.)

    Secondly, the system comes embedded with an extremely lucrative revenue sharing arrangement to benefit the project concessionaires.

    According to reports, the two companies can claim between RM600 million to RM800 million for the services and the equipment involved in installing 831 cameras in traffic hotspots nation-wide.

    This disclosure has infuriated members of the public who strongly support road safety but are concerned at the opaqueness of the implementation process and are suspicious that the main purpose appears to be to benefit various cronies.

    Coming: Claims for AES compensation

    The two firms awarded the contract to implement the enforcement system claim to have spent between RM300 million and RM400 million each to set up and operate the system.

    If the system is to be abandoned, they will insist on being compensated for their expenses to date.

    But how believable are their estimates of expenditure?

    One skeptic has worked out in great detail the expenses involved in the establishment of the AES.

    According to him a total of $24 million would be more than adequate in setting up the company, main office, staffing , maintenance and vehicles; establishing a roving maintenance team at 8 locations; setting up the server, monitoring and control system; and purchasing cameras for one year's operation (see here for the full breakdown )

    As a long time engineer and business man, I find the breakdown of expenses provided by the skeptic credible and believable and the concessionaires' estimates incredible and unbelievable.

    Should compensation be paid?

    We can be sure that the two companies will have insisted on full compensation clauses built into the contract should the government back out.

    They will probably have the paper evidence to show that they have spent hundreds of millions in setting up the system.
    So it looks like either way -whether the AES is implemented or not - the two companies could be laughing all the way to the bank with their bloated claims.

    There is only one way to stop this daylight robbery. This is for the Malaysian public to kick up the biggest fuss possible and to demand that the full truth of the 'Automatic Enrichment Scandal' - including its real costs - emerge before any compensation is to be paid.

    UMNO IS TOO MUCH – AES highway robbery of RM1.2 billion a year

    Posted on October 31, 2012 | Leave a comment
    UMNO is too much – AES highway robbery of RM1.2 billion a year

    UMNO can never stop itself from burdening the people with a variety of actions that only benefit its leaders and their cronies.

    It is true that Najib gave handouts, but simply to win votes and defuse public anger. Let us think for a moment, what is the value RM500.00 today? Moreover, not everyone got it!

    On the other hand UMNO leaders made millions of Ringgits from every project implemented by the UMNO/BN government at the amount the reaped cannot be spent finished for seven generations!

    We’ve read the news of vans of security companies and trucks full of expensive computer chips being robbed on the roads and highways.

    The robberies involved the value of tens of millions of Ringgit and the victims were sometimes killed. But these were done by robbers, who planned and are ruthless. They are those who are termed “criminals” are not afraid of the authorities and the law. However, if caught, the authorities will certainly deal with them severely.

    But UMNO is a different kind of robbers

    Ates Sdn Bhd and Beta Tegap Sdn Bhd are two crony companies of UMNO / BN that were awarded by the UMNO / BN government to implement the Automated Enforcement System (AES). Both companies are given the right to get part of the payment of the summonses paid by the road users starting with RM16 for each summon for the first tier of 5 million summonses and the amount will increase for the second and third tiers. Read here.

    From plans made by UMNO, the two companies, will collect RM600 million and RM800 million each respectively for the first year of operation!

    The two main differences between the above highway robbers and UMNO are first; UMNO can rob the people legally and second while the robbers will only rob once in a while or one off, UMNO does it 24/7 and 365 days a year!
    What is the actual cost for the year they begin operations?

    1. Based on the estimate of their cost according to Tables A, B, C and D below, the gross amount for the implementation of this project in the first year of operation is RM23, 918,550.00, say RM24 million. This project can be implemented by just one company.

    2. If we assume that this estimate is not accurate, we can double it, so the cost is RM48 million and we can round up the figure to RM50 million.

    3. Perhaps there are those in MAMPU will dispute these figures, so we doubled it again to be RM100 million.

    4. Maybe the company wants to have maximum profit, so we doubled it again to be RM200 million.

    The question now, since we have multiplied it by 8 times, from RM24 million to RM200 million a year so, is it still not enough? This is ridiculous!

    So, where is the rationale of the two companies were granted the right to collect RM600 million and RM800 million a year!

    UMNO is now executing the robbery 24 hours a day, for the first year of operation amounting to RM1, 200 million a year! (RM600 + RM800 – RM200)

    Selangor puts blanket freeze on federal jobs pending AES appeal

    By Zurairi AR

    SHAH ALAM, Feb 21 ― The Selangor government today ordered a freeze on all federal projects in the state, including highway and light rail transit (LRT) projects, pending an appeal of a landmark decision on the controversial Automatic Enforcement System (AES).

    This follows a decision by a High Court today to disallow the Sepang Municipal Council (MPS) from removing the speed cameras, ruling that the federal government is the proper authority on AES rather than the local council.

    “The state government also has directed its Economic Planning Unit to provide a list of federal development plans,” Mentri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim (picture) said here in a statement.

    “The plans will be checked again by the State Executive Council to ensure that the Selangor citizens’ and the state government’s interests are guaranteed.”
