Kuala Lumpur is such a beautiful cities and it is where Malaysia’s capital stand. Like other mega cities in the world, massicve traffic jams is a normal problems occured at the place like this. There are time when the traffic jams can be predicted, but often it is out of control. Eventhough the government try to persuade us using the public transports, not many of us prefer that way. Lack of network, poor services and conflict management contributes to the low respond from the public. In the end, people are more comfortable to travel by their own vehicles.

But, wait, if you choose to travel by your own, then please check out traffic surveillance around KL first before you start your journey. Kudos to DBKL for offering such services inside their web. Now people can have a better plan before they start their engine. I’m the regular web surfers who used to check the traffic status before going back after work. You can have a live traffic images at:

Live image traffic at Bulatan Kampung Pandan, KLBoth of the web provide CCTV view at different places and angles. (Pictures on the right side shows live image at Bulatan Kampung Pandan, KL – if the pictures doesn’t appear, then the server goes offline again..) However, I’m quite dissappointed with their servers infrastructure where it always offline during the peak hours. It looks like they didn’t pay much attention on their IT infrastructure. There’s no point you spend millions of ringgit to place the cameras and traffic systems, but in the end failed to deliver to public what you should have delivered. I can say that 2 or 3 times the server will go offline from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm in a weekdays. Maybe they can give a reason saying that ther server is overload by public accessing the info, but in the real manner, they should prepare for it and have a solution to overcome it.

What can I say? Typical local IT vendor is always like that…
