Waze and the Selangor State Government are collaborating in an initiative where “Wazers” can now report potholes they see on the road through the app and local authorities will attend to it within 5 days.
The steps are as above and is really simple:
- Hold on the “Reports” icon and three different types of reports will show up
- Move your finger towards the “Hazard” icon
- On the Hazard Menu, select “On Road” and subsequently select “Pothole”
- Press “Send” to share the report and the Selangor State Local Authority will attend to the pothole within 5 days
“With this initiative, drivers in Selangor have a simple and effective way to report potholes directly to the authorities so they can get patched quickly,” said Country Manager for Waze Malaysia, Edward Ling.
The project covers the areas of Petaling Jaya, Shah Alam, Hulu Selangor, Kuala Langat, Kuala Selangor, Sabak Bernam, Ampang Jaya, Kajang, Klang, Selayang, Sepang and Subang Jaya. Do take note that some roads in Selangor are privately owned or separately managed by Jabatan Kerja Raya, Pejabat Daerah/Tanah or Malaysia Highway Authority and Concessionaires.
“This citizen collaboration has shown tangible impacts and we hope that Selangor residents will continue to assist the state in pothole detection via the Waze app.”
