On Sept 3, my son was driving along Ang Mo Kio Avenue 6 when he was involved in a serious collision with a vehicle going in the opposite direction which had attempted to make a right turn to Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3 without checking for traffic. He was hospitalised due to the impact.
At that junction, turning from Avenue 6 to Avenue 3 in the direction of AMK Hub is a signalised turn, but vehicles going in the opposite direction turning right to Avenue 3 make a discretionary right turn.
I do not understand why there is a red-amber-green turning signal for only one of the right turns at that junction. I believe my son's accident could have been avoided had there been a turning signal in the opposite direction.
I hope someone can look into this matter so as to avoid similar accidents occurring again if discretionary right turns are allowed.
