Muslim amongst us is welcoming Ramadhan, the month for spiritual reflection and worship and most of them will push away worldly indulgences and pleasures to focus on prayers with our family. The Holy month is likewise one of the busiest traffic time, and the exact opposite thing Malaysians need is the worry of being stuck in a congested traffic conditions. Waze has created four valuable tips and traffic expectations for the Holy month in view of the traffic pattern and statistics of past years.

 

Tip #1: Avoid the PM Rush!

Based on a year ago activity information, Waze predicts that Malaysians will encounter a change in driving behaviour with 4pm to 7pm being the busiest hours in the day amid the Ramadhan month, when contrasted with the rush 5pm to 9pm that is usually seen during other months. It is advised that those hurrying home for “Buka Puasa” avoid from being on the road between 4pm to 7pm.

Tip #2: Plan Ahead for Friday Drives

Another change in behaviour is also noted by Waze, where people drive most on Friday during this Holy month. Fridays are the most important day of the week for Muslims, as families are heading to mosques for Friday prayers before a relaxing end of the week. Those who will be out on Fridays are encouraged to plan their drive by checking the Waze application ahead of time to decide traffic conditions before making an escape from work to “Buka Puasa”.

 

Tip #3: Better to be Safe than Sorry on Highways

While highways are conducive, those who on their way home using highways are encouraged to always be alert. Waze has discovered that the regions regularly reported to have street accidents are on Lebuhraya NKVE, Jalan Kuching and Lebuhraya Salak route. Utilize Waze to check for accidents up ahead and pick an alternate route in order to not add to the congestion.

 

Tip #4: See Something, Say Something!

On the off chance that you see an incident when you are out and about, be it an accident, a pothole or a car stuck along the edge of the highway, help other Wazers by reporting it. All you have to do is:

1. Tap Reports . This will save your location if you choose to submit the report later.

2. Select the report type from the Reports menu.

3. Tap Send to share the report.

 

Don’t be stuck in traffic this Ramadhan, so you can spend more time with your loved ones and don’t let traffic jams test your patience this Ramadhan. Download the Waze app to test it out for yourself. For more information, please visit www.waze.com.
