Boy, 16, charged with taking bus for a joyride.
A boy aged 16 was charged with taking a private bus for a joyride. He was underage and therefore did not have the licence to drive the bus. Luckily, he did not cause any accidents on the roads during the journey of 6 hours and a distance of 155km.
Although there was no points of view made by the writer, there were some from netizens. In a Facebook post regarding this news, Hana Gaus commented that "He could have killed someone. Most probably, he had observed someone's driving skills and followed it." I agree with this comment. I think that it is wrong for the boy to commit such crimes. Driving a vehicle without a license is very dangerous as it may cause accidents on the roads. Innocent people may be hurt or even killed. This is perhaps one of the reasons why Singapore has stringent laws and there are many traffic police plying the roads nowadays to summon errant drivers.
In addition to that, drivers, as well as pedestrians, using the roads should exercise road safety. Every one has a part to keep the roads in Singapore safe. Our lives are precious and we will not want accidents to happen on us. Simple tips such as checking the blind spots when turning for drivers and practising the kerb drill for pedestrians can avoid an accident and save lives.
In conclusion, the boy was wrong to drive without a proper license and every one should exercise road safety.
