National Speed Limits (Malaysia)

Had Laju Kebangsaan (National Speed Limits) is a set of speed limits applicable on Malaysian expressways, federal roads, state roads and municipal roads. Like any other countries in the world, failing to obey the speed limit on Malaysian roads and expressways is an offence as subject to Malaysian Road Safety Act 1987, which can be fined up to RM300, depending on the difference between the speed limit and the driven speed.

Default speed limits
Expressways: 110 km/h (70 mph) by default, but may be reduced to 80 or 90 km/h (50-55 mph) at dangerous mountaneous stretches, crosswind areas and urban areas with high traffic capacity.
Federal and state roads: 90 km/h (55 mph) by default, 50 to 70 km/h (30-45 mph) on urban areas. Like expressways, lower speed limits ranging between 40 to 60 km/h (25-40 mph) are applicable at dangerous stretches, especially very sharp corners.


Speed limits for heavy vehicles
Special speed limits are applied to heavy vehicles, and all heavy vehicles have speed limit stickers describing the allowed speed limits. However, many heavy vehicles especially express buses don't obey those speed limits.

The speed limits for heavy vehicles are as follows:-
Expressways: 80-90 km/h (50-55 mph)
Federal and state roads: 70-80 km/h (45-50 mph) by default, 60 km/h (40 mph) in urban areas


Other speed limits
For school areas, the speed limit of 35 km/h (20 mph) is applicable during rush hours. Besides, cars with trailers apply the same speed limit as heavier vehicles (90 km/h on expressways and 80 km/h on other roads).


Speed limit issues
Several years ago, a proposal to increase the speed limit on Malaysian expressways to 120 km/h (75 mph) was made but was finally rejected in 2005 by Minister of Works, Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu, stating that most drivers often drive 10 km/h faster than the stated speed limit on the expressways, and therefore they will drive at 130 km/h (80 mph) if the 120 km/h speed limit is enforced.
