hope police will take action against this driver.
also, hope more drivers will post video clips they have captured on dangerous driving so TP can take action against them. Help make the road safer.
photography makes one sees things from all angles.
While I don't like authority to have too much power....it seems that a stiffer sentence is needed to handle all these crazy road user that is popping up time and time again...

One of the comments:
"dun laugh at her la, some women just can't drive. last time in Australia, I also ganna some situation, instead of taking video, some Ang Mo actually came out to help me drive out of the obstacle. The cameraman really shameful, instead of helping her, you take video for fun."
The video camera man failed to zoom in on the car license plate.
From the curve of the inlet road, it is clear that she was driving against the traffic. Treating a one way inlet as a two way road.
It was extremely dangerous to other road users, for this car to emerge from an EXIT, into the fast flowing traffic of the highway.
The video has nothing to do with the sex of the drivers. It does not matter whether they were male or female.
The driver was obviously taking an illegal short cut. She should be given a short prison sentence, say 1 week.

Her way of saving some ERP charges !
i think that... in a moment of confusion and panic, she actually turned right instead of left. who knows.
anyways... those laughing at the antics on facebook... watch out. even your "littlest" traffic offence that you thought wasn't seen, can be recorded by others on video cameras
I am proud of the driver. Must show this to Sim Wong Hoo, who coined the tern "no u turn syndrome" for Singaporeans.
Little we know about the beginnings that lead to the situation. Might not have been a local driver. But from my own experience I can say: not all markings and signs on the road are always clear and precise. After using a road 10 times (and following the camels in front of me) it all seems so clear and obvious. But when one takes the road the first time, it looks different.
But this should be no excuse for going over the green or against the traffic in a one way road.
I don't think she wants to be in that situation. From her cautious driving down the kerb, she is a careful driver. The question is more how she landed there.
I do agree our road signs are not the best. We also have too many. Sometimes I have difficulties looking at them. People putting up signs know the place well and assume the signs make sense but to those new NOT.
Timely LTA come up with some guidelines. A single sign pole can be shared with a few signs.
Lots of local drivers have become cocky and complacent because of familiarity. Why do u think that there are more road incidents recently?
