On Oct 9, I was at the zebra crossing near the exit of the Ayer Rajah Expressway to Alexandra Road.
I raised my hand to signal my intention to cross. A van driver in the left lane stopped for me.
But when I was halfway across, a sports car in the right lane just zipped past me. Thankfully, I managed to stop in time to avert an accident.
Is this incident simply a case of a reckless driver or is it that the zebra crossing is a potential hazard, since it is sited near an expressway exit?
Drivers are supposed to slow down or stop as they approach a pedestrian crossing, but many fail to do so.
The Land Transport Authority should consider replacing zebra crossings with signalised pedestrian crossings.
