KUALA LUMPUR, April 20 -- With an increase of vehicles on the road following the opening of all economic sectors, the Expressway Mobile Patrol Vehicles (EMPV) of the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) have deployed on highways to monitor and disperse traffic congestion.
Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani said police detected an increase in traffic flow on all highways and main roads nationwide after the government allowed all sectors to operate.
‘’Nevertheless, traffic flow and accident rate are still under control,’’ he said when contacted by Bernama TV recently.
In addition, he said EMPV units are also mobilised to enforce the traffic rules including accident prevention patrols and ensuring COVID-19 standard operating procedure (SOP) compliance at Rest and Service Areas and Laybys on highways.
In addition, he said enforcement was also conducted at the state contingent and district levels to ensure the safety of road users.
On April 1, the government relaxed the 30 per cent compliance condition for employees’ presence in office in areas under the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) while all management or supervisory staff were allowed in the private sector operations.
