AWAS, also known as Automated Awareness Safety System is a combination of the Automated Enforcement System (AES) cameras and also the Demerit Points System (Kejara). It has officially taken effect on the 1st of April and it is aimed to catch and remove habitual traffic offenders.

According to The Star, this means that those who are caught under the AWAS system would potentially face suspension and even revocation of their driving licence.

Under the AWAS system, the driver would be issued a warning if one has accumulated 20 demerit points, the subsequent 20 demerit points would result in a a driving license suspension, and a further 20 points would amount to revocation of driving license.

Road Transport Department (JPJ) Director-General Datuk Nadzri Siron held that the system would only utilize the 14 AES cameras installed as of now and is aimed at two major offence, running red lights and speeding. However, JPJ is expected to install more cameras and include other road offences by the end of the year.

Besides the usual offences which drivers would be fined RM150 under AES, drivers would also potentially have their license suspended under AWAS for overtaking at double lines and also using the emergency lane.

This new move is definitely better, seeing that Malaysia is ranked a shocking number 2 in SEA for most accident deaths in 2016, and 18th in THE WORLD!

So, drive safe guys!
