THE speed limit for federal and state roads will be reduced by 10kph from Thursday to Oct 12, reported Mingguan Malaysia.
Transport Ministry secretary-general Datuk Zakaria Bahari said this move was to reduce the number of accidents on these roads during the festive period.
Currently, the maximum speed limit on federal and state roads is between 60 and 90kph.
He said heavy vehicles were also not allowed to be on those roads this weekend and between Oct 4 and 5.
Zakaria said the authorities would also issue compounds at the maximum rate of RM300 for all serious traffic offences.http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?fi ... sec=nation
