  1. Poor judgement….. inexperience rider….. there are times you can beat amber light and times you better prepare to stop… depends on how busy the junction and area…. defensive abit

    This is the problem. Drivers and riders seeing amber instead of slowing down and stop, speed up instead. This bad habit had resulted in many deaths and serious injuries. Think TP should expedite installation of the dual functions cameras at all traffic light controlled junctions to make slowing down second nature when approaching junctions.

    1. Ah Soh says:

      Correct! The rider speeded up when amber and still not able to clear when it turned red. At that speed, ebraked also finished. So went through. Many accidents at junctions happened like this. The new dual function cameras will catch drivers who speed up apart from running the red light.
