PUTRAJAYA Corporation(PPj) president Datuk Fadlun Mak Ujud advises motorists to keep safe while on their way to their hometowns for the upcoming Hari Raya celebrations.

PPj president Datuk Fadlun Mak Ujud said they have collaborated with Road Transport Department (JPJ), police and Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research on a road safety campaign called “ Balik Kampung Dengan Selamat”, where some 100 packs consisting of road safety pamphlets and Hari Raya snacks were distributed to motorists on April 17 at Jalan Tun Abdul Razak in Precinct 3.

“This is an annual campaign to advise motorists to adhere to the traffic rules and be prudent drivers on their journey to their hometowns.

“This year we are also stressing on the steps to take before starting that journey, which includes checking the vehicle’s condition, getting good rest and planning their journey to avoid getting stuck in heavy traffic jams.

“PPj Environmental Health Division team also took the opportunity to slip dengue prevention kits into the packs, to encourage the people to spend at least 10 minutes to make sure there was no stagnant water in their house compound before leaving to their hometowns to prevent the breeding of mosquitoes,” he said to reporters after the event.

Also present was JPJ Road Safety director Dr. Wong Yau Duenn.
