STOMPer Francis came across the aftermath of an accident at Yio Chu Kang that involved at taxi and a motorcycle around 2am this morning. The STOMPer also highlights the challenges that motorists face at night.
Said the STOMPer:
"This morning about 2am, I saw policemen recording this traffic accident that involved a taxi and a motorcyclist at Yio Chu Kang/the Lentor Avenue cross junction.
"Somebody from the crash must have been injured and called for this record taking.
"In my night driving, I had taken notes that many motorcyclists did not maintain their head/tail lights properly.
"Cyclists wearing dark clothing without lighting is another visibility problem to fast-moving motorists.
"Besides that, even moving vehicles without their headlights on at night are also on the rise.
"The traffic authorities should handle these kinds of irregularities seriously.
"Life is precious and we only live once.
"Why do these people choose to disavantage themselves?"
