Road accidents have now become a major concern in Malaysia. The latest accident figures fromthe Royal Malaysia Police show that the numbers have increased by 23% and 15% over the lasttwo years alone, with 135,995 cases recorded for 1993. Malaysia's rapid economic growth may bepartly responsible for this worrying trend as the country is currently seeing registered vehiclesincrease by over 7 % per year. In order to sustain high rates of economic growth, utilisation of theskills of our people is of paramount importance, and the nation can ill afford to waste suchvaluable resources in road accidents. Many would argue that to minimise human suffering in anyway possible is sufficient justification in itself to devote greater efforts to reducing the roadaccident casualty toll.Realising this, the Government set a reduction target in 1991 to reduce road accident fatalities by30 per cent by the year 2000 with 1989 chosen as the base year. To achieve this target, all relevantGovernment Departments and Agencies need to contribute to this effort. The approach to be takenfollows the 3 E's concept: Engineering, Education and Enforcement. Jabatan Kerja Raya (JKR)being the main Engineering arm of the Government can play a major role in this respect.In line with this, Institut Kerja Raya Malaysia (IKRAM) has undertaken a road safety researchprogramme in collaboration with the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) of the Unite Kingdom.As part of this initiative, IKRAM is now able to provide a reference guide for use by all practisingroad engineers in Malaysia. I am very pleased to be able to introduce this document, entitledInterim Guide on Identifying, Prioritising and Treating Hazardous Locations on Roads in Malaysiaand am grateful to the Overseas Development Administration, U.K. for their contribution to thefunding of this project.This interim guide provides information specifically for Malaysia and sets out a standardmethodology for analysing accident data to help identify the most hazardous locations, selectappropriate remedial measures, and evaluate this action. It is my hope that this Guide will beuseful to all who are involved in the road safety field, helping them to channel limited resources ina more efficient manner, and thereby ensuring that our road network is as safe as it can possibly bemade.(Tan Sri Dato’Ir Wan ARahman Yaacob)Director General of Public WorksJabatan Kerja Raya Malaysia1995
