KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 28 – Stringent and continuous enforcement of current legislation by the relevant authorities on seat belt (safety belt) and helmet wearing is needed to prevent road fatalities, says Malaysian Institute of Road Safety (MIROS). MIROS chairman Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye said to achieve long term effects, continuous enforcement action concerning seat belt and helmet wearing should be intensive, highly visible and well publicised.

He said it should be conducted predominantly in locations where there is increased crash risk. He said this in a statement here today. Lee wants enhanced social marketing focusing on advocacy initiative and community based-programme to road users on the benefits of seat belt and helmet wearing and road safety education for schoolchildren and the driving licence curriculum. He also encouraged vehicle manufacturers to install ‘seat belt reminders’ for front and rear seats.
