Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong revealed that his ministry will be organising engagement sessions and discussions with players within the transport industry in regard to a proposed cap speed limit of only 30 kilometres per hour (km/h) on roads in urban and residential areas, cities and villages. The proposal will keep the current 50km/h speed limit in other zones.

As reported by national news agency Bernama, Dr Wee said that the proposal requires through scrutiny and discussions before any decision will be made. The proposal itself was made by the Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research (MIROS) as part of the national road safety plan for 2021-2030.

MIROS claims that the proposed lower speed limit would allow people to safely mix with road traffic and create a safer, healthier and more liveable space in the affected areas.

Speaking of the proposal, the Transport Minister commented,

“In Malaysia, there are many factors that can cause road accidents, not just the speed of vehicles involved. If we reduce the speed limit from 50 km/h to 30 km/h, it will surely trigger mixed reactions.”

“However, we will take into consideration all the factors and study the proposal from every aspect to find the best solution,”
