Horrific Ferrari Crash caught on camera, time for LTA and Traffic Police to do the right thing!

In the wee hours of Saturday (May 12) morning, a Ferrari hit a taxi which in turn hit a motorcycle at Rochor Road. So far, three are reported dead, and footage of another taxi’s camera shows the Ferrari driver beat the red light.

The clip also reveals that at least eight lucky people escaped the horrific accident by just seconds

The Ferrari driver was Mr Ma Chi, 31, a businessman who came from China a few years ago. He was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.

The taxi driver, 52-year-old Mr Cheng Teck Hock, was pronounced brain dead and passed away at Tan Tock Seng Hospital. He was the sole breadwinner of his family, and is survived by his wife and three children.

A Japanese woman who was a passenger in the taxi succumbed to her injuries and died at the Singapore General Hospital on Saturday, May 12, the same day the crash happened.

 

 

[Updated 26 may 2012] In less than 2 week after the first accident, another car (this time Lexus) sped and beat the red light and crashed into a Taxi resulting in another scary accident. One of the victims, the male taxi passenger, was sent to the Singapore General Hospital after the accident. The car driver was arrested for drink driving. You have been warned the footage is quite disturbing.

 

Speed demons not meant for S’pore roads

Letter from Rajesh Seth

THE horror of the Ferrari crash at Rochor Road, caught live on camera, would send chills down anyone’s spine.

In 1992, the sale of chewing gum was banned in Singapore because it became a nuisance.

The authorities should explain why these brutes of a machine should not be labelled as a nuisance in Singapore when the maximum speed limit on our roads is 90km/h.

I am at a loss to find an answer to how these over-powered sports machines contribute to Singapore’s economy.

Secondly, we have installed traffic lights which detect traffic density and changes. The lights change faster at night.

Have the authorities allowed for a lag time for motorists when the traffic lights change?

Where this accident occurred, the lights are at close intervals and the road is straight. Traffic lights at several junctions are visible at night.

Could a driver possibly miss a red light against the background of several green lights?

"The question to ask is what lies at the root of the discontent or the disengagement between the G and the people. I am going to stick my neck out and say that it is ministerial salaries.
