Letter: Humping around Taman Molek

With business districts sprouting like mushrooms, Taman Molek residents are beginning to feel the strain of the rapid development as the town becomes congested.

Kindergartens formally situated on landed property with plenty of outdoor space now hardly have any, and children have to make do without playgrounds.

However, for motorists who live around the Taman Molek area, rapid development has probably made the biggest difference to their lives.

Many road humps have been built as part of traffic-calming measures, in the interest  of pedestrian safety. (Jalan Molek 1 humps, left)

That busier the area, the greater the number of humps.

Komunitikini found that even the area around a petrol kiosk has three humps. (left)

At Jalan Molek 1, there are three humps on the main road, all within 400 meters.

Taman Molek currently has 14 banks, and numerous day care centers, easily making it one of the busiest residential-commercial areas in Johor.
