A pizza delivery rider was involved in an accident yesterday (Sep 17) at Hougang. STOMPer Anastasia, who saw the accident, is concerned about the pressure on delivery riders to be punctual which might cause them to risk their lives.
"I chanced upon this scene at about 10.30pm yesterday. This was at Hougang Mall's car park.
"I don't know much as I didn't actually see the accident but I heard that the delivery guy was not badly hurt, fortunately.
"I wouldn't have posted this if not for the fact that I've seen countless delivery riders risking their lives - and those of innocent others - daily with their speeding, illegal u-turns and such. I hope young drivers out there will think twice before endangering their lives like this.
"There should also be more pressure on Pizza Hut and other companies with delivery services to allow their drivers more time to complete the delivery.
"I wonder if the Land Transport Authority has any comments."
