Stomper Daniel was driving along Lorong 7 Toa Payoh when he saw a car turning left and almost knocking down a primary school boy.

This happened on Apr 7 at around 4.55pm near Pei Chun Primary School.

Even though it was a green man and in the boy's favour, the driver of the white car SKS1194L turned left without stopping for the boy and came dangerously close to hitting him.

Even though the driver was at fault, the Stomper believes it is important for children to practice road safety as they are at the mercy of reckless drivers such as these.

"Parents, please remind your child to look right and left before walking across pedestrian crossings," Daniel said.
