The traffic in Klang Valley is NO JOKE. Some people take public transport to avoid the hectic traffic, while some go the extra mile and leave their house early in the morning to reach their workplace, and sleep in the car prior to their shifts.

The trend of sleeping in the car has proven to be a habit among many Malaysians when recently, a Malaysian named Edd shared a snapshot of a newspaper article that highlighted the matter. According to the article, many Malaysians leave their house as early as 5 in the morning and sleep in the car until 9 am.


All this hassle is just to avoid the hectic traffic in Klang Valley, and we’re sure that many Malaysians, especially those who drive to work every day can relate to this “madness”.

Speaking to WORLD OF BUZZ, Edd said that she used to go through the same hassle just to avoid the traffic.

“I used to leave my house at 6:45 am. When I reach my office at 8, I’ll sleep for 45 minutes.”

Edd leaves her house in Shah Alam before sunrise and it takes her 75 minutes to reach her office in KL. It’s no wonder why many opt to leave the house as early as 5 am, but not everyone can commit to the hectic schedule.

Edd also told WORLD OF BUZZ that she’s a huge believer in hybrid working arrangement, where employees are allowed to work remotely, including from the comfort of their own house.

“I’m working from home now, and I can’t deny how it increases my productivity and quality of life.”

“Bring back WFH!”

In the meantime, many Malaysians in the comment sections have also expressed their desire to, once again, work from home. Hybrid working has been a practice in many companies since the pandemic to curb the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

However, as the transition into endemicity has seen a major downtrend in the reported Covid-19 cases, many employers have urged employees to return to the office.

“Encourage WFH, it’s an effective solution that many refuse to acknowledge. It’s just the same since you’re doing your work with your laptop. What’s the motive for going to the office anyway? Missing the pre-Covid life much?”

Another netizen pointed out that it’s easier to commute to work by riding a motorcycle.

“There is no cure for the traffic from Bangi/Kajang to Puchong/Shah Alam in the morning unless you take public transport or ride a motorcycle. It takes me 30 minutes to travel 33 KM by motorcycle.”

“It takes me about 75 minutes to drive from Kajang to KL, the solution is like what the newspaper article stated. Leave the house earlier, sleep in the car and clock in 10 minutes prior to your shift. And then, clock out at 10 pm. Truly modern slavery.”

While this may work for skipping traffic, sleeping in your car with the engine running is not encouraged as it may pose danger to your health. Fellow Malaysians, what else do you do to avoid the hectic traffic in Klang Valley?
