Penang - serious traffic noise and safety problem

Post Posted: Mon Jun 03, 2019 2:50 pm

Traffic noise seems to be an increasingly serious problem around Tanjung Bungah area towards Batu Ferringhi, especially at night and weekends, often between 1am and 4am making a decent night's sleep impossible. Forget the idyll of open windows and enjoying the sea breeze! Illegally modified loud exhaust pipes on motorcycles and cars seem to be on the increase. Is there any enforcement of this? Added to the problem is speeding and road racing in an area with the international school and tourist hotels and a popular cycling route. This would seem to be a serious safety concern with cars and motorbikes routinely driving at speeds of 80 or 90kmh in a 60kmh zone and frequently ignoring and "jumping" red traffic lights. Does anyone know if there are any residents' or community groups in Tanjung Bungah who can help voice out these concerns to the authorities with a view to installing safety and traffic calming features such as speed humps/ramps or speed cameras? There was a serious accident along here on 1 June from motorbikes racing up and down and this situation seems out of control with preventative safety initiatives urgently needed.
