Despite it being less than a month since his appointment as Transport Minister, it appears that Anthony Loke has had his hands full with issues in regards to public transport and transport in general.

Recently, Twitter user @mohamad_azwar took to the platform to urge Loke to look into yet another pressing issue, which is the barring of heavy vehicles from being on the road during peak or rush hours.

In his post, Azwar wrote, “I feel that you need to re-examine the appropriateness of heavy vehicle movement during peak hours on main roads.”



He tagged the Transport Minister’s official Twitter account and even shared pictures of himself facing the exact problem.

Azwar went on to highlight a number of issues that come about whenever heavy vehicles are allowed on the main roads during rush hours.

“In addition, heavy vehicles that carry an overloaded load or overloaded structures also make light vehicle drivers feel insecure and very dangerous.”

“Not only that, heavy vehicle drivers are also often unethical when driving, by driving on the right with dangerous speeds,” he added.



He went on to write, “It is even more disturbing when heavy vehicles with excessively heavy loads drive too slowly in hilly areas causing traffic conditions to become too congested.”

He concluded his post by tagging Loke yet again and urged him to look into the issue.


A longstanding problem

His tweet has gone viral and currently sits on over 1,527 likes and 825 shares. Plenty of netizens took to the comments section to sound their approval for Azwar’s concerns.

“I thought they’re not allowed to operate during that time range? Where is (the) authority? Where is compliance monitoring?”

“Thank you for highlighting this! I see them all the time. I’m okay if they only operate during working hours because we’re all at office then,” suggested another user.

Another user sounded their approval and pointed out that the way they drive is reckless and dangerous. 

“Please look into this issue. It has been a long time. Hopefully the current government can make a change.”
