208 FATALITIES WITH WHOOPING 37 MILLIONS RAISED

Congratulations to the Malaysian Motorists and the Police for being able to reduce fatal road accidents by 8.4 percent compared to the last year figure. Double congratulations to the Police as well as the errant motorists for contributing a huge sum of RM37.4 millions to government 's income in just a matter of a few days in the recently concluded Ops Sikap.

In addition to the Toll System, indeed the the road users are a great source of earning revenue for the parties concerned. That was why it was said some years ago, that the government's earning in the form of road summonses and compounds was enough to cover the cost of constructing the KL - Seremban Highway within a short period of time.

Thinking, attitude, behavior and performance are interrelated. The recent reductions in both the fatalities and the total number of accidents just prove the point. Preventive measures taken by the Police and the JPJ personnels, including speed traps, constant patrolling of the road systems, high and fixed amount of traffic fines and proactive measures taken against speedsters who modify their vehicles for extra speed are some of the successful strategies implemented.

Fear of being fined excessively as well as campaigns and promotions in the media have contributed to the attitudinal change, hence behavioral changes as manifested in the forms of being more polite, more disciplined, more cautious and alert on the road and overall accident prevention behaviour.
