Motorist Telegram Groups Drivers To Join

Almost everyone has access to Telegram. But did you know there are a few groups out there that can help drivers on the roads? Let’s take a look at them.

Sometimes, the radio just doesn’t give you sufficient information while you’re on the road. They may warn you of an incident at a certain area, but it may not be as detailed to avoid it completely.

Besides having conversations with your loved ones, Telegram offers more to users through the use of channels, groups and bots. Some of these are dedicated towards traffic and road conditions, and can aid drivers immensely.

Let’s have a look at five Telegram groups that every driver in Singapore should join!

*Take note that all figures below are rounded off.

1. SGRoad Blocks / Traffic News

The first on the list is a group chat which primary purpose is to inform drivers of road blocks, as well as the occasional update for traffic news.

The group has slightly more than 32,300 members, as of today (1 December 2023). Being a group chat, you will see fellow drivers chit-chatting with each other, asking if certain areas have road blocks or not.

For example, if Driver A asks if Woodlands has any road blocks, Driver B who is currently driving in Woodlands could reply if they had spotted any road blocks.

The chat forwards traffic updates from ‘SG Rd Updates’, which is a channel that informs drivers about whatever is happening on the roads. You can subscribe to the channel here

What’s the difference between the ‘Update’ and ‘Informer’ chats? Well, ‘SG Rd Informers’ is a group chat, where you can send messages and talk to other users. ‘SG Rd Updates’ is a channel, which means that only admins can send messages.

The ‘Update’ chat has about 25,500 subscribers as of today.

Although, we feel that the ‘Informer’ group is a better fit as you can get the updates, as well as converse with other.

3. LTA Singapore

For all motorists, our biggest boss is the Land Transport Authority (LTA) so what better way than to find out the latest road and public transport updates than straight from LTA's own Telegram channel. 

Join almost 29,000 members to get updates on things like road closures and updates to road layouts. 

You can also get information on adjustments to public transport services like train breakdowns or early closures for maintenance.

4. SGMYCustom & Msia Road 

Editors%2 Fimages%2 F1701409623575 5 Telegram Groups 5

With over 73,000 members as of today, this group chat is intended for motorists who travel in and out of Malaysia on the daily. It constantly updates members about the road conditions in Malaysia, and allows motorists to converse with each other.

When you first join the group, a bot will welcome you with a long message that has a long list of acronyms. Although, with so many members, sometimes the bot doesn’t send the welcome message to everyone, so you might be confused.

Let’s break down the list of acronyms together.

  • WLNFC – Woodlands Left No Fuel Check
  • WRNFC – Woodlands Right No Fuel Check
  • WLFC – Woodlands Left Fuel Check
  • WRFC – Woodlands Right Fuel Check
  • TLNFC – Tuas Left No Fuel Check
  • TRNFC – Tuas Right No Fuel Check
  • TLFC – Tuas Left Fuel Check
  • TRFC – Tuas Right Fuel Check

Basically, these inform drivers whether there are any fuel checks at the Woodlands or Tuas checkpoints. These acronyms are also used by members to inform each other of fuel checks.

Aside from this, the group chat also sends updates on road cameras at the checkpoints for drivers to check. It even provides useful information like the current exchange rate and the weather forecast in Johor.

5. Motorist Community Channel
