When a man saw a Porsche make an illegal U-turn at Empress Road, he was concerned but not taken aback as this was a common sight for him.

Stomper Mike shared that the incident, which happened on Saturday (Nov 28) at 5.27pm, was not new to him as he frequents the road often and has spotted many cars doing the same.

"I've seen many vehicles coming from Holland Road making these illegal U-turns at Empress Road, possibly to return to their condominium on the other side of Farrer Road," Mike said.

"Not sure why they can't just make a legal U-turn which is further down at Farrer Road in front of Serene Centre. It only takes an extra 30 seconds.

"Even school buses are doing this daring act! It’s not the first time I've seen it. But this time around, I managed to take out my phone in time to take a video.

"It's definitely a challenge for pedestrians to cross Empress Road to Farrer Road MRT station when cars are doing such sharp U-turns.

"Cars from Queens Road turning right into Empress Road must also slow down when these vehicles are making their sharp U-turns.

"It’s an accident waiting to happen. I believe the presence of cameras or even a road divider will help prevent potential accidents."
