Tomorrow marks the first day of Ramadhan. A sacred time of the year for our fellow Muslims friends as they embark on a journey of spiritual reflection and worship. As we all know, aside from embracing the Holy month we will be embracing one of the busiest traffic seasons in Malaysia as well.
For a smoother drive, Waze has shared some useful tips and traffic predictions based on historical data they have acquired in the past years.
There are three certainties in life: Taxes, death, and potholes on Malaysian roads. These deadly indentations have become so common in our society that the more astute driver has already developed the uncanny twitch reactions of a whitewater rafter when it comes to avoiding these deathtraps.

No, young traveler, for there is another Waze.
Waze just released a brand new update that that lets you record your own custom voice prompts. Yep, say hello to the Waze Voice Recorder because we’re all set, let’s go.
Driving can be stressful and apparently 9 out of 10 parents drive safer if their kids are in the car. However most of the time, the kids can’t accompany them on their daily commute and Maxis has teamed up with Waze with a little add-on for safer driving.
They have introduced a new Safe Mode voice pack, which essentially use voices of Malaysian children to give directions and traffic alerts.
