There were at least 5 obstacles reported by LTA over the same period.

Authorities have issued notices, urging citizens to avoid lanes affected by obstacles and motor accidents.

Be careful when driving

While it’s hard to say if the wet weather had anything to do with accidents today, we hope motorists will be careful when they’re driving about.

Let’s hope the flooding situation improves islandwide too, so they’ll be safe for drivers once again.
