Tan said: "This happened at the traffic light junction of Woodlands Road and Bukit Panjang Road.

"I only hesitated to move off when the light turned green because I was worried about the cyclist on the left.

"If not for that slight delay, the consequences would have been unthinkable. I might have knocked down the e-scooter rider.

"I just wanted to remind the public to not beat the red light."
