Reckless container truck driver along Nicoll Drive shows why pedestrians always look out for traffic

A video circulating online shows a driver of a container truck beating a red light along Nicoll Drive outside the SAF Ferry Terminal on Feb 28 at around 10.40am.

In the video posted on Beh Chia Lor - Singapore Road, the truck can be first seen travelling on the second lane of a two-lane road. 

It then approached a traffic junction. The traffic lights were showing red.

Instead of stopping however, the driver of the truck beat the red light and drove on. 

There was a pedestrian crossing the road on the other side at that point of time. He had to stop in the middle of the road to avoid getting hit by the massive vehicle.

According to a caption on the video, the truck was a Malaysia-registered vehicle.

This incident shows why pedestrians should always watch out when they are crossing the road. It may not be safe even though the traffic lights are in their favour.
