Posted by temasektimes on May 27, 2012

An accident occurred in the early hours of Saturday morning when one speeding Lexus crashed into a Sonata taxi at the Bugis junction between Rochor Road and Victoria Street at exactly the same spot where a fatal accident happened two weeks ago.

The driver of the Lexus is a 30 year old Singaporean Chinese and he has been arrested for drink-driving and dangerous driving.

  2. What the?! said

    What is wrong with people?? Considering that the driver was a Singaporean I wonder what netizens will blame this on… Can’t blame FT, can’t blame Ferarri….

    Doesn’t this tell you that LTA need to do something a bit more drastic to slow down traffic or to check the traffic lighting system. Since the Ferrari crash, many people had already claimed numeous other previous accidents. In another word, this is simply a “black spot”. I always wonder why LTA does not police its own guidelines with regards to temporary road barrier. It says.. fill up plastic barricate with water, instead we get broken barricate which dont hold up ay water. Ooops side tracked there. Maybe its a case of inexperienced FT filling up LTA engineering road survey team?

      In Road Engineering LTA adopted a design speed, such that Traffic Code of Practice are in place. When LTA regulate traffic flow along roads, road users must adhere to the Highway Codes otherwise infringements and penalties are imposed by the Traffic Police.

    Netizens are considerably quiet. This guy was clearly in the wrong and drunk. Where is the outrage?

    • timeofeve2010 said

      To the contrary of what you see here, netizens are still debating on what can be done to improve the driving conditions at Bugis Junction,to reduce these cases of mishaps in future, all lives must be treasured.
      In this case, the male taxi passenger was lucky to be alive and not found dead, thus the media did not have anything worthy of reporting. Only when there are 3 deaths, 2 seriously injured parties involved, and nothing concrete had been done for victims yet, then Singapore work as one, to let people know our anger, sadness and dismay. People’s feelings change with circumstances, if the right thing is done, why would we need to be angry (especially when innocent victims are involved)?

    Outrage on this site is obviously biased. I guess if they want to blame anything, they’ll blame LTA instead of focusing on the fact that this guy is Singaporean…

    Are the traffic lights syncing properly in the first place? lightning struck twice at the same location. Even a 1 second error could change the outcome. Anyone checked the traffic lights yet?

  7. I am just commenting to let you be aware of of the excellent discovery my cousin’s child had viewing your webblog. She picked up a wide variety of pieces, most notably what it is like to have an ideal teaching character to get many more quite simply know chosen complex matters. You actually did more than visitors’ expected results. I appreciate you for imparting those great, safe, explanatory and as well as fun thoughts on this topic to Ethel.

    Feedback to lta on the traffic green duration is too long during certain off peak hours or less congested roads falls on deaf ears. It basically gives drivers to accelerate from distance to dash through the hopefully green light.

    Lta, also doesn’t believe the count-down timer can be an effective way to give motorists an informed signal for light to change.

    Lta cannot be innocent at all.
