  1. Wish the driver a full & speedy recovery.

    Now its reported that one of his arm is severed.

    I hope all these heavy vehicles drivers are more conscious when in the road. It may not be others but a fellow driver.

    Drive safely everybody. Exercise caution n patience. Better late than never.

  2. it’s a wild wild west in Tuas South. the worry is whether the next driver will adhere to traffic lights and speed limits with all the heavy vehicles around.

    • Must be tired, maybe fallen asleep at the wheels..being mostly paid-per trip, they rushed about Everyday to earn enough to survive and put food on the table, in this rather expensive place…..

    • Now this business not as good like last time. One trip per night good enough. Some of them the trailer become their second bedroom just park one corner wait for time. Some become family car even.

  3. More cameras should be install, often they speed recklessly and hog middle lane. M – cyclists will treat those road like BKE, PIE, SLE and Jurong as F 1 track, while returning home… Check the % of the nationalities that involves in the fatal accidents. Maybe the issue been overlooked. ..
