KUCHING, Dec 30: Kuching City South Council (MBKS) has installed two radar speed advisory signs along Jalan Stutong within the vicinity of a private medical centre here to remind motorists to keep to the speed limit.

MBKS mayor, Dato Wee Hong Seng, said that the radar speed advisory sign works by providing feedback to the drivers on the speed that they are currently travelling.


“We hope the radar speed advisory sign will reduce the frequency and severity of accidents at these spots.

“Additionally, it is also hoped that the reduced average speed of vehicles on the main road will enhance not just the safety but also the convenience of residents,” he told reporters before officiating at the event.

He stressed that MBKS regards the safety and well-being of the people, especially motorists, to the highest degree.

“Towards this, the MBKS shall continue to work closely with the police to identify accident blackspots within its jurisdiction and find ways to eliminate these safety threats,” he said.

Wee also reminded that safety is everyone’s responsibility.

“The citizens must share the responsibility of ensuring the community’s safety by adhering to traffic rules and regulations.

“Traffic rules are there to ensure the safety of road users. Please cooperate with us so that we may better protect your safety. Together we will make this city safer for everyone,” he said. — DayakDaily
