Bulan Ramadhan sudah menjelma, bulan untuk refleksi dan ibadat rohani dan umat Islam di kalangan kita mesti ingin menyambut bulan yang penuh keberkatan ini bersama keluarga yang tercinta. Bulan yang suci ini juga menyaksikan trafik yang sibuk pada setiap hari dan tertekan kerana kesesakan trafik adalah benda terakhir yang rakyat Malaysia mahu di bulan Ramadhan ini. Oleh itu, Waze telah menghasilkan empat tip berguna dan ramalan lalu lintas untuk bulan suci ini berdasarkan corak perjalanan dan statistik tahun-tahun yang lalu.

 

Tip #1: Elak ‘PM Rush’!

Lazada Malaysia

Berdasarkan data lalu lintas tahun lalu, Waze meramalkan bahawa rakyat Malaysia akan mengalami peralihan dalam tingkah laku memandu, iaitu 4 petang hingga 7 malam menjadi jam tersibuk pada hari-hari Ramadhan, berbanding 5 petang hingga 9 malam yang biasa dilihat pada bulan-bulan sebelum ini. Adalah disyorkan bahawa mereka yang ingin bergegas pulang ke rumah untuk berbuka puasa, elakkan daripada membuat perjalanan antara jam 4 petang hingga 7 malam.

Tip #2: Merancang untuk pemanduan hari Jumaat

Waze juga mencatatkan peralihan lain dalam tingkah laku memandu, di mana orang ramai kebanyakannya memandu pada hari Jumaat semasa Ramadhan. Jumaat adalah hari yang signifikan dan penting di dalam komuniti Islam, kerana umat Islam berpusu-pusu pergi ke masjid untuk menunaikan Solat Jumaat, sebelum ketibaan hujung minggu yang tenang. Mereka yang akan keluar pada hari Jumaat dinasihatkan untuk merancang pemanduan mereka dengan memeriksa aplikasi Waze terlebih dahulu untuk menentukan keadaan lalu lintas sebelum membuat perjalanan dari kerja ke rumah untuk berbuka puasa.

 

Tip #3: Biar lambat asal selamat di lebuh raya

Walaupun lebuhraya lebih selesa, kepada mereka yang menuju ke rumah menggunakan lebuh raya dinasihatkan sentiasa berjaga-jaga. Waze mendapati bahawa kawasan yang dilaporkan mengalami kemalangan jalan raya adalah di Lebuhraya NKVE, Jalan Kuching dan Lebuhraya Salak. Gunakan Waze untuk memeriksa kemalangan di hadapan dan pilih laluan yang berbeza supaya tidak menambah kesesakan lalu lintas.

 

Tip #4: Laporkan jika anda nampak sesuatu

Jika anda melihat kejadian di jalan raya, sama ada kemalangan, lubang atau kereta terkandas di tepi jalan, bantu rakan Wazers dengan melaporkannya. Apa yang perlu anda lakukan adalah:

1. Tekan Reports . Ini akan menyimpan lokasi anda jika anda memilih untuk menyerahkan laporan kemudian.

2. Pilih jenis laporan dari menu Reports.

3. Tekan Send untuk kongsi laporan anda.

Elakkan terkandas dalam trafik Ramadhan ini, jadi anda boleh menghabiskan lebih banyak masa dengan orang yang anda sayang dan jangan biarkan kesesakan trafik menguji kesabaran anda di bulan Ramadhan ini. Muat turun aplikasi Waze untuk mengujinya sendiri. Untuk maklumat lanjut, sila layari www.waze.com.
