Your picture: Zebra crossing better than red stripe

In Lorong 1 Toa Payoh, there is a red stripe instead of a zebra crossing painted under a shelter built recently across a slip road from Block 124 to 126 leading to a carpark.

A "Give way to pedestrians" sign mounted on a pillar seems to be ignored by many motorists and motorcyclists.

Is the red stripe a new road sign? Many drivers are not aware of it, and this endangers pedestrians.

For the safety of all road users, the familiar zebra crossing signage may be better.
