Police identify three traffic “blackspots” in Negeri Sembilan

NILAI, Feb 6: Police advise motorists to be vigilant at three blackspot locations where fatal accidents often occur in Negeri Sembilan.

They are Jalan Port Dickson-Lubuk China; Jalan Seremban-Kuala Klawang-Simpang Pertang (Jelebu); and Jalan Kuala Pilah-Jalan Seremban.

State deputy police chief Datuk Abd Khalid Othman said conjunction with the Chinese New Year holidays, the number of vehicles entering the state is expected to increase and will cause congestions at several places in Seremban, Port Dickson and Nilai (three locations each), in Tampin and Rembau (two locations each) and one location each in Kuala Pilah, Jempol, and Jelebu.

“Comparative statistics of Ops Selamat in 2022 and last year show an increase of 307 road accident cases, with a percentage (increase) of 54.4 per cent. Hence, all motorists must obey traffic rules and the instructions of enforcement officers on duty, throughout this festive season,” he said at the Road Safety and Advocacy Campaign in conjunction with Chinese New Year at the Nilai Toll Plaza, here today.
