KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): The volume of traffic in here went up by nearly 30% on the first day of the implementation of the conditional movement control order (MCO) on Monday (May 4) compared to the day before (May 3), says Kuala Lumpur traffic investigation and enforcement head ACP Zulkefly Yahya.
He said the enforcement of the conditional MCO also saw all Op Covid-19 roadblocks at eight locations removed.
"We received instructions from the Kuala Lumpur police chief to end the roadblocks in the federal capital, as well as road closures, ” he told Bernama.
He said the police would now focus on traffic enforcement operations, including "Op Mabuk”, targeting drunk drivers, and "Op Samseng Jalanan” (road bullies).
"Apart from that, we will also assist in monitoring at public places or car parks, ” he added.
A survey by Bernama found many vehicles heading into the city, but the traffic situation was under control.
Check at several LRT stations found public transport users adhering to the latest guidelines.
Last Friday (May 1), Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin announced that the conditional MCO would be implemented beginning May 4, where almost all economic sectors and businesses would be allowed to reopen, subject to strict conditions. – Bernama
