Yew Tee Accident At Discretionary Right Turn Junction on 5 Aug

While many of us work from home, food delivery riders have been busier than ever bringing food right to our doorsteps.

This means they are often on the road, zooming from one place to another.

On Wednesday (5 Aug), a typical workday took an unexpected turn for a GrabFood rider when he got into an accident at Choa Chu Kang Drive.

Singapore has seen a slew of accidents in the few months since Phase 2 started, many involving food-delivery riders.

Do stay safe and remain alert on the roads at all times.
