The 16 key locations include:
- The intersection of Jalan Tun Razak or Jalan Ampang
- The intersection of Jalan Tun Razak or Jalan Semarak
- The intersection of Jalan Ampang or Yap Kwan Seng
- The intersection of Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman or Jalan Tun Perak

The police will be monitoring road users for various offences such as running the red light, stopping their cars beyond the white line, parking their vehicles on pedestrian pathways, zebra crossing, or inside the yellow box.
Drivers who leave their cars in restricted areas or block the road with their vehicles are not above the law too.
City police chief Datuk Mohd Shuhaily Mohd Zain said no discounts will be given for issued summonses regardless of the offences committed, Sinar Daily reported.
As long as I am the Kuala Lumpur police chief, no discounts will be given. When we want to educate the public, we must be consistent and firm with what is being implemented, especially to increase awareness and culture of obeying traffic rules.Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Mohd Shuhaily Mohd Zain
He stressed that the community’s negative road culture needed to be changed to improve public safety.
Shuhaily added that operations to track down traffic offenders involving foreigners were also carried out in several locations.
