I know what you’re thinking.
It’s a long weekend and really, you don’t want to stay in Singapore even if it’s Singapore’s birthday.
But you know what?
Here’s one thing you wouldn’t want even more on Singapore’s birthday: get stuck for hours in a traffic jam.
And that’s what you’re going to face if you decide to travel to JB for a day trip this weekend.
8 To 12 Aug Are Not Good Days To Go JB Via Car
According to the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority of Singapore (ICA), traffic conditions at the checkpoints are expected to be heavy from 8 to 12 Aug 2019.
Due to National Day and Hari Raya Haji, they expect traffic flow at both the checkpoints (both Woodlands and Tuas) to be heavy.
Sunday (11 Aug) and Monday (12 Aug) are also Malaysia’s public holiday.
And if we based it on past records…
Saying that the conditions are going to be heavy is like saying girls run away whenever I profess my love for them.
A massive understatement.
They run away screaming.
That being said, ICA is also telling Singaporeans to…
…Be Prepared For Traffic Build Up
ICA also mentioned that during this period, they’ll be increasing security checks to prevent any security risks from entering Singapore.
This also means that you can almost certainly expect traffic build-up and delays.

Travellers are urged to check and make sure you have the necessary documents to get you across the border.
This includes having your passport with you and making sure it is valid for six more months and more.
And every instance that an officer has to spend arguing with you is one less instance for him to clear another vehicle.
Lost & Found
People who have reported the loss of their passports are also reminded not to use said passports at the checkpoints.
Even if they found them after reporting.

A 34YO "old-virgin" S'porean was desperately looking for a boyfriend and surprisingly, she really found one online. But the intentions of the man will make you cry. Prepare tissue paper to watch this video based on real events:
Should you be found trying to use a passport that was reported lost, you might be fined up to $10,000, jailed up to two years, or both.
A Useful Tip
Now, if you die-die also have to travel across the causeway to JB, how?
Check the One Motoring website to look at the traffic conditions before making your way out of the house.
Or you can check the Expressway Monitoring & Advisory System (EMAS) installed along BKE and AYE.
Finally, check ICA’s Facebook page to see if there are any major happenings on the Causeway that might just cause you to be stuck there for hours.
