Sharing Is Caring

Netizens have taken to social media to share their ‘balik kampung’ experience.

Twitter user @Emeer_Iskandar left home in the wee hours of the morning from Kota Damansara to Kuantan.

The journey, which should have taken 3 to 4 hours at most, took almost 8 hours.

Others took the opportunity to wish flew road users a safe journey and remind them to be patient and drive safe.

The desire to balik kampung is understandable, as Covid-19 lockdowns had prevented people from doing so for two years.

Safety First

Motor vehicle crash deaths and injuries can be prevented.

Always to buckle up and drive at safe speeds.

Never drive impaired to help everyone stay safe on the road during the holiday season.

Avoid distractions while driving, such as using your cell phone to text, email, or access social media.

Sending or reading a text takes your eyes off the road for at least five seconds.

Check the weather conditions before you head out on the road. Make sure to drive at a speed that is safe for road and weather conditions.
