JKR laid the humps on Sunday 4th but I wonder if they have also laid an egg in the process.
Firstly, kudos to JKR because they have responded well to our needs – after the accident that is. I’d like to think too they did not like my statement on the day of the accident whether they are waiting for someone to die before they would do the needful. MP for Klang, YB Charles Santiago also put in a useful boot. Anyway, JKR has done what they promised to many residents who filed official complaints. And they have installed extra street lights (the bright halogen type) at key points so the humps will be visible at night. I hope all these things get billed to GCD, heh.
My concern is there is only just one bump on either side of the road, with yellow lines of the thermoplastic variety. I have to wonder whether it will be effective with just one hump.
Let’s go back 10 months to this post which was a signature drive for the humps. 101 of you signed the petition and it was delivered to MPK which then led us to JKR and the knowledge that GCD had a load of conditions imposed on them where traffic was concerned, including traffic lights and 4-lanes stuff. You’ll see this diagram I had drawn and included in the correspondence to these statutory bodies.
I was suggesting two humps in the belief this would be safer. Perhaps one hump is enough. They are the experts after all.
Please send feedback via comments or email after your experience. These comments shall be passed on to JKR so be extra tactful.
