MALACCA: Over 50 senior citizens in Ujong Pasir have appealed to the Malacca Historic City Council (MBMB) for traffic lights to be installed at the zebra crossing in front of a health clinic.

They said that several people have been fatally injured over a five-year period as motorists ignore traffic rules that require they stop upon seeing pedestrians at the zebra crossing.

“Many using the zebra crossing have been hit and we will look into their request,” said MBMB publicity officer Tan Jeok Kwang after visiting the site recently.

Residents claim that the crossing, which is located close to a government clinic, has seen several accidents.

Many claimed to have had a narrow escape from inconsiderate and reckless drivers.

S. Banu Mammy, 36, from Taman Hilir was almost knocked down by a car while using the zebra crossing.

”It is a dangerous junction and can get extremely busy at certain periods, putting lives at risk.

“I know of many near misses and residents will tell you how dangerous it is,” she said.
