JOHOR BARU: The police have deployed enough manpower to ensure a smooth flow of traffic during the ongoing school holiday season that started on May 28.

Johor police chief Comm Datuk Kamarul Zaman Mamat said there is an influx of vehicles from outside and inside the state that have been drawn in for tourism activities.

“We have taken proactive measures and have stationed our men in strategic locations to ensure a good traffic flow during this one-week holiday.

“The main focus is placing our men on point duty at intersections, surveillance, patrol, and static operations, besides increasing the response time to any emergencies that could block the traffic flow,” he said in a statement here on Monday (May 29).

Additional policemen will be deployed on a daily basis when needed, not only for traffic concerns but also to safeguard the public, especially in crowded tourist areas, he added.

“Focus will also be given at the two main entrances into the country: the Customs, Immigration, and Quarantine Complex (CIQ) in Bangunan Sultan Iskandar (BSI) in Johor Baru and the Sultan Abu Bakar Complex (KSAB) in Gelang Patah.

“We expect the number of vehicles to increase, especially during the weekend,” said Comm Kamarul Zaman.

The police will also be on the lookout for any queue cutters, he added.

“Those who want to spend their time in Johor are advised to follow all the road regulations and not be selfish or create any provocation on the road that could harm other road users.

“Always plan your travel early and don't forget to fill up your ‘Rumah Selamat’ form before leaving your house,” he added.
