Do you recall the sudden installation of the radio frequency identification (RFID) lane in almost every toll, sometime about last year (2017)?

Well, the RFID Tag toll lane is actually an initiative to reduce the long lines at toll lanes as vehicles would be able to pass through them without needing to slow down as the sticker/tag will contain a chip that can easily be scanned.

It functions like a barcode, whereby the tag will be read by “an overhead scanner through electromagnetic waves with a frequency of between 850MHz and 950MHz”. The scanning range can reach over 27 metres, with a shorter response time of 10 milliseconds. Impressive! 

As of now, only the Royal Malaysian Police vehicles have been using the RFID tag for testing purposes and by next year (2019), we will be able to enjoy the benefits of the tag too. Can’t wait! 

NST reported that the Dewan Rakyat said the RFID tags will be distributed to Malaysians early next year (2019). Yasss, no more long toll queues!

Deputy Transport Minister, Datuk Ab Aziz Kaprawi said that the government is currently discussing with Touch ‘n Go to distribute RFID tags for free to locally-registered cars. 

“The implementation of RFID system traffic flow at toll plazas will make traffic flow smoother,” he said.

In response to Anuar Abd Manap’s (BN-Sekijang) question on whether there will be an implementation of the system in local vehicles, Aziz said that although the system will be ready to use next year (2019), the implementation of the system will be carried out in stages.

Eventually, it is expected to take over Touch ‘n Go in the near future.

On the other hand, Aziz said that the vehicle entry permit (VEP) charges is expected to start end of this month (April 2018).

“VEP was postponed because it involves modification works, installation of infrastructures, system development as well as system integration of agencies namely; Road Transport Department, the police and Customs Department as well as adjustment with agencies at the border,” he said in response to Anuar’s question about the reason VEP implementation had to be postponed and the date of VEP’s implementation.

FYI, VEP is a permit given by the Road Transport Department, under Section 66H of the Road Transport Act 1987, which allows foreign vehicles to enter into Malaysia. 

Well, soon enough we won’t have to wait anymore longer at tolls thanks to these easy-breezy RFID tags! And that means lesser traffic jams too, fingers crossed!
