How does AES function?
- AES is able to automatically detect and record any traffic offenses as soon as they are committed in accident-prone areas where the system is installed.
- AES implementation covers offenses such as:
> Beating the traffic light
- Information of these offenses is then sent in real time online to the AES Control Centre. The information is processed to identify the driver/owner of the vehicle based on the information in the RTD database.
- Summons will be issued automatically and sent by mail to the person who is summoned (OKS).
- The system automatically sends the information to the court for trial if the OKS chose not to pay the compound or decided to go for trial.
