Biker blocks car using Smart Lane on toll highway

Biker blocks car using Smart Lane on toll highway

With the 2024 Lunar New Year balik kampung exodus in full swing, the Smart Lane system is in effect on certain stretches of Malaysia’s toll highways. Done to alleviate traffic congestion on the highway especially during the pre- and post holiday travel period, the Smart Lane implementation during specific times and dates seems to have escaped one motorcyclist.

In a video shared by user anthraxxx781 on social media, a biker is seen stopping his motorcycle on the emergency lane, blocking the path of a car. This is not a one-time occurrence as it has happened in the past.

The rider then gets off his bike and confronts the driver, presumably to tell the driver off for using the emergency lane which is not allowed during normal days.

However, in several public announcements, vehicles on the toll highways are allowed to use the emergency lane during specific times and dates. This was reported in a paultan.org article, here.

Just to recap, the SMART Lane goes in effect beginning February 8, and lasts till February 18, with other dates applicable for certain stretches of highway. The full list is as follows:

  • from Bukit Tambun to Juru Toll Plaza – KM150.9 to KM150.5 (northbound)
  • Bandar Cassia to Sg Bakap layby – KM155.3 to KM156.0 (southbound)
  • Gua Tempurung to Gopeng KM306.7 to KM297.0 (northbound)
  • Slim River to Sungkai KM367.3 to KM354.0 (northbound)
  • Sungkai – KM354.0 to KM356.0 (southbound)
  • Rawang R&R to Sg Buaya – KM439.5 to KM435.5 (northbound)
  • Exit of Petron NKVE to Subang – KM11.2 to KM13.3 (northbound)
  • Nilai to Seremban R&R – KM280.0 to KM286.0 (southbound)
  • USJ overhead bridge to Seafield – KM6.1 to KM8.1 (northbound)
  • Port Dickson to Seremban – KM260.0 to KM263.1 (northbound)
  • Air Keroh to Jasin layby KM194.5 to KM 184.0 (southbound)
  • Kulai to Senai – KM27.0 to KM19.0 (southbound)
  • Senai to Kulai – KM19.0 to KM27.0 (northbound)
  • Dato Onn to Pasir Gudang – KM4.5 to KM1.9 (southbound)

        Since when can Malaysia follow the Germans? Malaysia is one of the most corrupt countries in the world. Malaysia is a third world country. Might be like that for the foreseeable future. It’s better to implement sensible rules, as implied by the previous writer than trying to be stupid copying first world country people, but have no moral fibre to follow through.

        You did not tell the real story. In Germany, when the emergency lane is used to relieve the congestion but when the trafiic has comes to a stop, the drivers by law must move to the edges to create an emergency lane in the middle. This will never happen here and won’t work. You are Malaysian, not German.

    “However, in several public announcements, vehicles on the toll highways are allowed to use the emergency lane during specific times and dates.”

    This is another nonsensical implementation.

    With such inconsistent rules, careless drivers will not only continue to use the emergency lane pass those schedules, they are directly encouraged to do so because “sometimes it is allowed”.

    Emergency lanes should only be authorized under police monitoring. Without uniforms and guns on the spot, drivers will take it as granted (which many already do)

    Also, during those specific times, does it means accidents and ambulances magically disappear from the highway? This is just plain ridiculous.

    Why not Malaysian Gov authorize drivers to use emergency lanes during school holidays, Dipavali, Christmas, Merdeka days, Raya, Fathers Day, Mothers Day, Women Day, Animals Days, Champions League season, Black Friday etc?

    I totally understand that motorcycle becoming upset. Emergency lanes should never be used by cars except, by definition, during emergency situation.

    Traffic jam is NO WAY an emergency situation.

    With such new stupid rules, careless drivers are going to care even less than ever, and with every years special saman discount, WHY SHOULD THEY BE AFRAID TO MOCK traffic law?

    Support to that bikers and wish that none of you guys have a serious car accident during the following schedule and locations :

      Interestingly, during my B test I purposely asked about it to be sure, the instructor told me that motorcycles can use any lane, cars cannot. It’s logic because of motorbike size. Just common sense. If cars start to use emergency lanes it will be chaos.

      Some frustrated car drivers cannot stand that motorcycles can filter traffic because 2 wheels are 2x smaller than 4 wheels.

    Such big CC bikers* are a disgrace, they think they’re above the law, and that emergency lanes are only for the 2 wheelers. These self-entitlted folks almost always ignore the simplest fact that motorcyclists are the most vulnerable on roads and especially highways. Had they met a bigger bully, this Abang plus his JWD7278 would most likely have ended up in pieces.
