Has anyone noticed that lorries, and other goods vehicles in Peninsular Malaysia are marked with white letters A, B, or C on a black circular patch ? And does anyone know the significance or differences among them ? Perhaps few have noticed.
Long time ago, there were no such markings. Per my memory, some time in the late 1960s, the goods transportation industry was up for grabs and a ‘war’ was looming. So the JPJ came up with a system of ABCs.
- A = for goods vehicles owned by professional haulage companies
- C = for goods vehicles owned by private business, and allowed to carry only their own goods
- B = for goods vehicles that may do both
I hardly see any ‘B’ markings these days. Has this class been obsoleted ?
