The Lembaga Lebuhraya Malaysia (Malaysian Highway Authority) under the Ministry of Works has announced that it's ready to expand on the use of the RFID system. Beginning 1 January 2020, toll collection via RFID will be implemented on all open-tolls for Class 1 vehicles.

According to the official announcement, the LLM hopes this move will help reduce traffic congestion on highways. The RFID system is attached to the Touch 'n Go e-wallet so you can top-up without having stop at the top-up booth and clog up traffic. It also doesn't require any charging since there are no batteries. If you are not familiar with TnG's RFID system or want to install one for your car, visit the official website for more details.
