One of the Traffic Police’s key goals is to reduce fatalities on our roads. We simply want our road users to arrive safely at their destinations, whether to meet their loved ones, to their workplaces, or to their leisure spots.

Despite our increasingly congested roads, our road traffic situation has shown improvements over the last few years. The number of fatal traffic accidents and fatalities in 2014 has decreased, as compared to 2013.

However, the majority of traffic accidents involve motorcyclists, which continue to be an area of concern. Our records show that one motorcyclist dies on our roads every five days.

We share the roads and our actions affect others. We call upon motorists to look out for other road users, especially the vulnerable – our children, our elderly, our cyclists and other motorcyclists. I also urge the riding community to ride safe for yourself and your loved ones.

Ultimately, road safety is the responsibility of each and every one of us. Traffic Police needs the support of all of you to make the roads a safer place for all users, be it pedestrians or vehicle owners. Together, we must develop our RoadSense, and build a culture of road safety and care for other road users.

One life lost is one too many. Let’s not talk about right of way, but what’s the right way – which is to look out forone another.

Motor Culture Asia at the Singapore Ride Safe 2015 dialogue session.

Close to 80 road users, comprising stakeholders from motorcycle interest groups, driving schools, taxi and commercial transportation companies, came together at Singapore Ride Safe 2015 today to discuss road safety matters concerning motorcyclists.

The dialogue session organised by the Traffic Police and the Singapore Road Safety Council (SRSC) is part of the ongoing initiatives for the Use Your RoadSense movement launched by Traffic Police in April this year.

In its ninth year, Singapore Ride Safe 2015 explored topics involving the attitudes and behaviour of motorcyclists; shared responsibilities of all road users; and their collective contribution in building a better road culture in Singapore.

The highlight of the dialogue was on road safety ownership and how other road users can look out for motorcyclists. The participants came to an agreement that having good RoadSense such as practising the right road habits and having empathy for other users, form the foundation for a better road culture in Singapore.

At the session, Commander, Traffic Police AC Sam Tee also offered an Open Letter (As above) addressed to all road users. “While Traffic Police continues with our enforcement, education and engagements efforts, road safety is still a shared responsibility. We hope that this letter will speak to an even larger audience. We all need to play a part in keeping our roads safe. We can always measure the statistics and number of accidents, but we can never measure the anguish and pain affected families feel,” said AC Sam Tee.

There are plans for more dialogues and engagement programmes with other road user groups. More details will be released when available.

Traffic Police invites all road users to take part in the conversations online, at the Use Your RoadSense Facebook page and support the movement by getting others involved.
