Road Barrier Conundrum Sparks Safety Debate

According to netizens, the local council installed the road barriers in response to safety concerns, including speeding, traffic accidents, and racing gangs.

A total of 25 road barriers have been erected along the section from Taman Taming to Taman Kantan Permai, prompting lighthearted comments and comparisons to other unusual street scenes.

The peculiar phenomenon has sparked discussions about road safety and urban planning in residential areas, drawing attention to the need for effective traffic management and infrastructure development.

Understanding the Rules: Speed Bumps and Road Safety in Malaysia

Individuals cannot legally erect a speed bump on their own in Malaysia.

Local authorities regulate the installation of speed bumps and must comply with specific guidelines to ensure safety and compliance with road standards.

In Malaysia, installing speed bumps falls under the jurisdiction of local councils or municipal authorities, such as the local Dewan Bandaraya (City Hall) or Majlis Perbandaran (Municipal Council). It must also meet Public Works Department (JKR) specifications.

These bodies are responsible for road safety and infrastructure within their respective areas.

If residents feel that a speed bump is necessary in a particular area due to safety concerns, they would typically need to petition their local council.

The council would then conduct a traffic study to determine the need and appropriateness of installing a speed bump.

The council would oversee the installation process if approved to ensure it meets the proper specifications and standards.
