Hulu Selangor Police Roadblock This Weekend At Ulu Yam
Hulu Selangor District Police Enforce traffic rules this weekend at Ulu Yam and Genting. We approve.
The Hulu Selangor branch of the Royal Malaysia Police announced on their facebook page that they’d been stopping loads of vehicles that were crossing district and state lines without travel permission over the weekend. In their post, they said that they stopped 72 cars, 22 bikes, 3 mpvs, and 2 lorries, issuing 19 traffic-related summons. These were done on the Jalan Sungai Tua – Ulu Yam and Jalan Batang Kali – Genting Highlands stretches.
We feel this is good and probably should be done on a more regular basis.
The Famous Ulu Yam and Genting Routes
It’s an open secret that many fun-loving in the Klang Valley take to the Ulu Yam or Genting roads for a bit of spirited driving on the weekends. While there’s nothing wrong with a bit of fun, it’s impossible to condone reckless driving on any public road. We all owe each other a duty of care and should take reasonable care to ensure their actions on the road don’t endanger others or their property. Too often, innocent lives are put at risk when cars are driven here past the speed limit and we wonder why this is allowed to happen.
I think it’s because it’s just allowed to happen. There’s almost nothing preventing people from speeding on these roads. People drive hard on these roads because they’re testing the limits of their machines and themselves and apparently law enforcement as well. Putting up speed cameras may be a little costly and their static nature may make it easier for motorists to circumvent. So police roadblocks are probably the best way to go about it.
