High-risk accident areas in Perak identified


GOPENG: More than 50 traffic accident hotspots and “black spots” in the state have been identified, says Comm Datuk Seri Mohd Yusri Hassan Basri.

The Perak police chief said there were 43 hotspots and 11 black spots (locations with the most fatalities).

In road safety management, an accident hotspot is a place where accidents have been historically observed.

This may occur for a variety of reasons, such as poor road design, concealed junctions, or low-profile junctions on a fast road; designs that promote high travelling speeds; or poor or concealed warning signs.

“Among the hotspots we have identified are the slip road near the Slim River toll, Jalan Bemban’s traffic light in Batu Gajah, the Jalan Baling-Gerik cross junction in Gerik, and the traffic light junction in Seri Iskandar town in Perak Tengah.

“In Ipoh, these include the traffic light junction near the Simpang Pulai toll interchange, the Jalan Simpang Pulai-Cameron Highland cross junction, Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah, Jalan Kuala Kangsar, and Jalan Sultan Nazrin Shah,” he told reporters after attending the launch of Op Bersepadu for the Chinese New Year at the RTC Gopeng rest and restoration stop near here yesterday.
