The video recordings from in-car cameras of the recent accident along the Ayer Rajah Expressway are a reminder of the dangers we face on the road ("Driver arrested after deadly mayhem on AYE"; Dec 20).
It is time to consider having on-board cameras mounted in all motor vehicles in Singapore.
There are obvious advantages in having a recording of an accident, rather than having to depend on the accounts of eyewitnesses.
When it comes to investigating or settling a case, a video recording of the incident will likely speed up the police probe as well as the court process.
The cameras also act as a deterrent to criminal acts.
Current technology allows for the cost-effective application of in-car cameras.
Let Singapore be the first country to introduce the compulsory fitting of such cameras in motor vehicles.
