Unsafe driving on Singapore roads on the rise: Shanmugam
Law and Foreign Affairs Minister K Shanmugam cited three incidents of unsafe driving on his Facebook page on Monday.
Here’s what he said:
I have been noticing that there is increased amount of unsafe driving on our roads.Today, my wife was driving and I was in the passenger seat. During the 2 way trip, there were 3 incidents.
First, as our lane was blocked for work, my wife tried to pull into the next lane, after indicating. A van which was well behind then deliberately moved much much faster, and to make sure we couldnt pull into the lane.
Second I saw a SUV zip in and out, almost causing an accident - without bothering to indicate.
Third, a lorry simply came into our lane, without indication and without giving enough allowance - almost an accident. The driver simply didnt care because of the lorry's size. I wonder if it is the case that we are simply noticing this more, or if indeed our driving habits have become worse.
