The Federal Highway connecting most of Klang Valley is one of the only expressways in Malaysia that have a designated motorcycle lane.
While motorcyclists using the main highway instead of the designated lane are a common sight, the same can’t be said about cars using the motorcycle lane.
Firstly, it’s illegal for cars to use the lane. Secondly, the narrow road could pose a serious risk to the car and motorcycles using the lane.
Well, a car was recently spotted using the Federal Highway’s motorcycle lane in Petaling Jaya, whereby a recording of the incident has been circulating on social media.
The 58-second video was reposted by Twitter user @nanmajoi8715, showing the car, a white Honda City casually driving on the motorcycle lane while motorcyclists had to ride carefully to avoid the vehicle.
The video is believed to have been recorded by a motorcyclist who was behind the vehicle and eventually overtook it, catching a glimpse of the driver in the process.
Watch the whole video here:
Following the video circulating on social media, the Petaling Jaya District Police has issued a statement regarding the incident.
The statement asserted that the incident is believed to have taken place at around 1.50pm on Thursday (29 May) at Km 30.1 of the Federal Highway heading towards Kuala Lumpur.
The police urged the individual who recorded the incident to contact the Petaling Jaya District Police traffic department to assist with the investigation.
Furthermore, the police also call for the public to adhere to traffic laws and be alert to traffic signboards on the road to avoid any unwanted incidents such as accidents.
