Take lift safety more seriously

The recent spate of injuries and deaths in lift accidents seems to indicate that lift safety is still not being taken seriously by town councils ("Mobility device user dies after lift accident"; May 17).

I alerted the Ang Mo Kio Town Council about a faulty lift door at Block 332, Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1 a few months ago.

Unfortunately, nothing appears to have been done and the lift door is still faulty.

As HDB blocks age, proper maintenance of lifts becomes increasingly important.

I hope that town councils can take feedback more seriously before more lives or limbs are lost.
