Title : Woman arrested for fatal accident along Bukit Batok Street 22
Summary : Paramedics pronounced a woman in her 60s dead at the scene, says the Singapore Civil Defence Force. A 24-year-old female driver was subsequently arrested for causing death by negligent act.
Response : I feel that the 24-year-old female driver was very careless. This also reflects badly on young drivers as many think young drivers are incapable because they are inexperienced and careless, and having this kind of fatal accident happening, it enhances the thinking that young drivers are incapable of driving as they do not care for road safety or does not have any skills to drive a car. I think that the old lady is indeed very innocent as it was not her fault that the young driver was negligent and thus caused an accident. All drivers should be careful on the road and take notice of elderly or young children crossing the road more carefully and not be as careless as the 24-year-old female driver.
