Live Traffic on Google Maps Now Available in Johor Bahru and on major Malaysian highways as well.

Malaysians can now access data about real time road congestion in Johor Bahru and on the major Malaysian highways — right on Google Maps

As part of our ongoing efforts to provide Malaysians with the most comprehensive, accurate and easy-to-use maps, we launched Traffic and Transit for Google Maps in Malaysia in May 2012 (Klang Valley), followed by Penang, Ipoh and Melaka in December 2012. Today, we are happy to announce that the Traffic layer is available in JB and on major highways across the peninsular and we hope this will make Google Maps even more useful for Malaysian users — especially for those with daily commutes in these new areas.

Our Traffic layer provides data about real time road congestion right on the map in order to help users find how to get to where they need to go as quickly as possible. We overlap colors onto roads — red for bumper-to-bumper traffic, yellow for slow moving transit and green for free flowing traffic — so that users can easily determine the level of congestion they will face.

The traffic data we show on Google Maps comes from a variety of sources, including government departments of transportation, private data providers, and users of Google Maps for mobile who contribute anonymous speed information through our traffic crowdsourcing feature. Traffic data is refreshed every few minutes with the most recent known conditions and as with all our Maps’ features, we aim to continue providing fresh, accurate and easy-to-use information.

Macam mana bila semua orang dah tak guna Waze? Dari mana data pasal kesesakan trafik akan diambil?

Well its about time we could used the navigation apps on android.
 
Hmm actually you still haven't answer my question.. I already knew that waze was acquired by Google long ago, in fact I'm one of the thousands that knew it as soon as the info is made public (thanks, Android Police).

My question is, what if all of a sudden waze users reduce in number to the point of zero; where would Google maps get the data about that traffic congestion? AFAIK, google maps currently don't have a social layer (one which allows users to report traffic congestion, for example)

Edit: poor grammar. Oh my English! 
 
When will live traffic be available for East Malaysia? ?
 
So.. When will malaysia get offline maps.. now only part of johor
