Initiatives to encourage road safety, ST forum, 8/5/2015

{Extract}

WE THANK Mr Francis Cheng for his feedback (“Ensure drivers stop at zebra crossing“; Forum Online, last Friday).

The Traffic Police adopt the three Es approach – enforcement, education and engagement – to inculcate positive road safety behaviour.

Apart from enhancing enforcement, the Traffic Police have been educating and engaging road users to practise good road safety habits, such as looking out for vulnerable pedestrians and the elderly.

Motorists are also reminded to be alert at all times and slow down when approaching pedestrian crossings.

……

Road safety is a shared responsibility. All road users are encouraged to play their part in cultivating safer road-use habits.

Motorists who fail to stop for pedestrians at zebra crossings are liable to a fine of $150 to $180 and six demerit points under Rule 6 of the Road Traffic (Pedestrian Crossings) Rules.
