MyBump Media is honored to launch the first crowd advertising Road Safety Awareness Campaign with Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan Malaysia and PLUS Malaysia on 12 January 2018 in conjunction with the inauguration of the JPJ Dengkil Station by Dato’ Sri Shaharuddin Khalid, Director General of Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan Malaysia and Datuk Azman Ismail, Managing Director PLUS Malaysia.
The Road Safety Awareness Campaign boasts 7 key road safety tips on the road throughout this Chinese New Year celebration! Catch JPJ brand ambassadors with the following very important road safety messages:
1. FOCUS WHILE DRIVING – YOUR HAND PHONE CAN WAIT
Did you know that driving while texting or getting on a (non handsfree) call delays your reaction time by 50%? No call or message is worth an accident, your life or the life of drivers around you; keep your focus on the road – and send that ‘wink’ emoji when you’ve safely reached your destination 😉
2. YELLOW MEANS SLOW DOWN!
Accelerate like you’re in an F1 race when you see a green traffic light turns yellow – we’ve all tried it. The yellow light is for your safety and is a indicator that the opposite traffic flow is about to start. When you see that yellow traffic light, keep calm and slow down!
3. STAY IN YOUR LANE OF A DOUBLE LINE
Double lines indicate that you cannot cut the traffic and must stay on your side of the lane. Generally because you cannot see cars of the opposing traffic flow from an instant-reaction-to-avoid-accident distance. It’s there for your safety and the safety of drivers in the opposing traffic.
4. THE EMERGENCY LANE FOR EMERGENCIES ONLY
This does not cover the emergency of getting to a meeting early or making sure you’re at home by the time the pizza delivery guy arrives – emergency means life threatening emergencies! Each second to save a life is precious and you can help to make sure assistance arrives as soon as possible by keeping the emergency lane clear.
5. INDICATE WHEN YOU’RE SWITCHING LANES
Other drivers rely on your signal indicator to know how and when to react, either to slow down their car or change lanes. It’s the only medium of communication between two drivers on the road, let them know when you’re switching lanes or turning at least three seconds before you do.
6. LIMIT YOUR SPEED TO THE SPEED LIMIT
Each road in a different area has its own speed limit – generally in-town roads are capped to 40KM/hour and highways are capped at 110KM/hour. Lower speed limit indicates higher traffic volume and traffic flow. The faster you go, the less time you have to react to possible accidents.
7. QUEUE UP AND CARRY ON
Remember when you are asked to queue up to you buy lunch in school? It’s a life skill! Cutting queue is not only wrong, it’s rude and inconsiderate. It’s common courtesy, everyone wants to reach their destination sooner and queue cutting only makes traffic worse! Be considerate and wait in line 🙂
There we have the 7 key road safety tips by JPJ! The road belongs to all drivers and it’s our responsibility to make sure journeys on the road are safe, harmonious and pleasant. We can make a difference when we work together! Drive safe, drive responsibly, everyday. #OpsTahunBaruCina2018 #bumpwithJPJ
