Puspakom has announced that the enforcement of additional MS 828 reflector stickers for all commercial vehicles with gross vehicle weight (berat dengan muatan, BDM) of 3,500 kg and above will start on January 1, 2024.

The extra MS 828 reflectors are on the left and right side of the vehicle, and contoured reflectors for commercial vehicles carrying dangerous goods such as tankers. The present rear reflector requirement for goods vehicles with BDM above 3,500 kg, including buses and vans, will continue.

  • Extra brakes bang JPJ. That’s what these lorries need on top of extra enforcement.

  • Firstly, please strictly enforce lorries from driving on fast lane. It’s dangerous for all vehicles. By doing so, they also lane hog the fast lane….causing unwanted traffic.

    Good measure! But wasted opportunity to specify; (1) reflective stickers (especially rear) must be within certain height from the ground E.g 1 or 1.5m. Cars’ headlamps are dipped so the lower these reflective stickers are; the better the visibility from a further distance. And (2) how about finally coming up with proper rear and side under-run protection regulations for all commercial vehicles?

    Problem is those lorries cant see us on the roads!
    Heavier fine n punishment are needed too to those drivers who break rules.

  • Reflector only for what?

    Please make them install extra rear impact bars. Not like those on current lorries a small tiny bar in the middle of the back. Make it wider, same width as the trailer, and curve a bit to the side.

    Again TCSS. Enforce lah. Echoing what bro Tt said, do it now. By right, it should be the requirement. Don’t wait for accident to happen.
