KUALA LUMPUR: Authorities are gearing up for the return leg of the Hari Raya traffic movement from today as city folk make the journey back from their hometowns.
Federal traffic chief Senior Asst Comm Mohd Fuad Abdul Latiff said the traffic situation so far had been positive with no major incidents so far.
“However, Ops Selamat is not over yet as the people will be driving back from their holidays over the next few days and we are expecting heavy traffic over the coming weekend,” he said yesterday.
He urged drivers to continue being patient and cautious on the roads.
“Please refrain from abusing the emergency lanes and follow all instructions from traffic police,” he said.
Star Radio traffic crew head Priscilla Patrick said traffic on major roads in the country was reasonably smooth yesterday.
“However, we expect more people to start driving back over the next couple of days,” she said.
She advised those making the journey back to follow the highway travel time advisory.
Patrick and her team will provide extended traffic coverage until Monday on all of Star Media Group’s four radio stations – Red FM, capital fm, Suria FM and 988.
“Drivers can even call us for advice on the best routes and times to travel,” she said.
Motorists seeking traffic updates and advice on the best routes can call 03-7725 1133, follow twitter.startraffic.my or log on to www.startraffic.my.
