Road Users’ Attitude towards Speeding and Implementation of Automated Enforcement Systems

The current study attempted to determine road users' attitude towards speeding and acceptance of Automated Enforcement Systems (AES) implementation. The survey was carried out with a sample of 1,194 respondents. The findings indicated that more than half of the respondents believed in chances of getting summonses if they flaw the traffic rules for speeding. Traffic enforcement cameras are successful in reducing speeding. More than half of respondents agreed that AES managed to reduce the amount of drivers who exceeded the speed limit. Majority of respondents also agreed with AES being installed at accident prone areas, as it is an effective alternative for speed enforcement. However, road users still do not have a clear understanding of the main goal of AES implementation which aims to reduce the rate of accidents causing serious injuries. Majority of the respondents were aware that AES will be implemented in Malaysia. They admitted that they will be driving courteously if AES was installed in their area. Overall, almost all respondents support the implementation of AES in improving road safety in Malaysia. Dissemination of information on AES implementation has to be aggressive and comprehensive to educate and increase awareness to road users. Thus, the implementation of AES is appropriate and should be given major emphasis. It must be immediately implemented in order to inculcate road users towards a culture of compliance and self-regulation.
