Safer Rides For Motorcyclist

With the improved motorcycle lanes, I still see motorcyclist on the Federal Highway. It boils down to enforcement to make motorcyclist use the motorcycle lanes.

Hazard-free rides for motorcyclist
...more signboards, speed-breakers and safety elements installed at junctions, bends and tunnels and at entry and exit points of the motorcycle lanes along the highway

...big and bright signboards to warn the motorcyclists of tunnels, flood-prone areas and other hazards on the road and to remind them to slow down and stick to the speed limit.

...Reflectors and speed-breakers have also been installed and the dangerous bends and pedestrian crossings are now clearly marked.

At several danger stretches, like the stretch opposite the Avon Building on the Klang-bound side of the highway, concrete slabs with bright yellow lines have been painted to prevent motorists from veering off the lanes into the Klang River some 20m below.
