Legislative Council (LegCo) member Yang Berhormat Iswandy bin Ahmad, permanent secretaries, deputy permanent secretaries and members of the National Road Safety Council (MKKJR) were also present.

The project will run for six months, during which members of an appointed task force will review and assess information, particularly in terms of enforcement effectiveness and sustainability, before gaining approval for nationwide implementation. — Borneo Bulletin/ANN
