Re: Your Illegal U-Turns are becoming popular.
As a resident, I already notice that the newly constructed U-Turns on the highway between Bukit Tinggi and Bandar Botanic are becoming more popular nowadays. A lot of residents are taking the illegal U-Turns.
One resident, a lady driver who use to send his children to a Child Care Center in Bukit Tinggi complained to me that one day she almost got into an accident when a Mini School Bus loaded with school children, suddenly brakes in front of her car and change direction into the illegal U-Turns after Jenaris entrance.
In one afternoon, in just about 10 minutes, I parked my car and counted not less than 10 vehicles making the illegal U-Turns across the Jenaris Junction.
One of my friend, who now lives in Bukit Tinggi but still holds dear to Bandar Botanic as he still owns a link-house in the township says that once it was a beautiful town but now is deteriorating. One such reason as the Illegal U-Turns.
A Police Woman friend told me that the Traffic Summon for making an illegal U-Turn is $150.00 ringgit. A plea with the Police Inspector will help reduce the fine to $100.00. It is still not worthwhile to loose $100 ringgit just by not going further a few hundred yards for the next legal U-Turn.
Only the Developer can solve this by redesigning the U-Turns or by placing concrete block at the other half of the U-Turn to discourage motorists.
Can the Developer turn a blind-eye to this U-Turns?
Dear Residents, Be careful because the next time it would not me stopping there and taking photographs of the Illegal U-turnings. The Next time, it would be the Long Arm of The Law.
It is therefore not worth while isn't ?
