PLUSRonda teams with Auxiliary Police Power patrol the expressway 24-hours a day. Among complimentary services offered by the PLUSRonda teams are minor vehicle repairs, towing for light vehicles to the nearest safe place or toll plaza and provide general traffic management during accidents and emergencies.
The Existing tow trucks or carriers can only cater for light vehicles such as passenger cars, taxis, pick-up lorries, vans and small lorries without load.
Vehicles experiencing mechanical problems will be towed by the PLUSRonda to the nearest safe locations such as toll plazas, rest and service areas or lay-bys.
PLUSRonda officers cannot issue traffic summonses to highway users even though they are also Auxiliary Police officers. However, summonses can be issued by Expressway Police teams that also patrol the expressway.
PLUSRonda teams use various types of vehicles to patrol the highways. The PLUSRonda fleet includes 4X4 vehicles, tow trucks, slide desk carriers and motorcycles.
Currently, there are 140 PLUSRonda teams with more than 400 personnel. On normal days, 46 teams are allocated for morning shifts, 50 teams for afternoon shifts and 44 teams for night shifts.
Note: There are some cases where highway users were cheated by tow truck operators who claimed that they are PLUSRonda officers or they were sent by PLUS to tow their vehicles. To prevent this, users are advised to call the PLUSLine (1800 88 0000) for confirmation. Do not entertain any tow truck operator or agent and do not sign any document or authorization letter.
