Parked buses along expressway can cause accidents


A SITUATION similar to that which allegedly led to the accident on the Kranji Expressway on Feb 1 ("Pre-dawn crash, morning crush"; last Saturday) occurs every morning along the Ayer Rajah Expressway towards Changi, just before the Jurong East exit.

Several private buses are parked along the road shoulder during peak hours.

I spot them daily from 7.15am to 7.45am when I travel along the expressway towards Tuas.

I reported this to the Land Transport Authority about three months ago. Is enforcement lax, or deterrence insufficient?

It is an accident waiting to happen.
