LTA: Speak out against speeding driver

Thursday, July 17, 2014

Update: 1:43PM BEING vocal against reckless drivers indicate that you are a concerned citizen, says LTA spokesman Iliesa Sokia.

Following the recent horrific accident in the West early this week, Mr Sokia said passengers should not be afraid of speaking out or yelling at a driver to slow down.

"Being silent is an indication that people are aiding the driver to continue speeding without having a second thought of the passengers' lives, other motorists and pedestrians," he said

"Some of us have a lot of respect for others and they think its an offence or taboo to speak out when things are wrong.

"The LTA does not believe in that perception at all and is urging the public to speak out against a speeding driver."
