Assalamualaikum and Salam 1Malaysia..
Lately lots of sound here and there talking about summons they had to pay for speeding on the Penang Bridge. To be clear, the summon comes with a copy of their vehicle picture so that no confision rises.
Since early this year, many speed trap cameras have been set up along the entire bridge, even on hot sunny days and early morning office rush hours. As a results, many motorists including my companies' cars and individuals have been booked by the police.
For the benefits of all colleagues and Penang Bridge road users, I am pleased to enclosed herewith some clarifications from the PPSB with regards to the 3 different speed limits imposed on the Penang Bridge.
For easy reference, please see the pictorial summary of the speed traps attached.
PENANG BRIDGE SDN. BERHAD (PPSB) CLARIFIES SPEED LIMIT
