AsiaOne Anti-Drink Drive Campaign 2015

The Traffic Police (TP) conducted an island-wide enforcement operation during the early hours of Thursday, 3 December 2015. The operation was targeted at errant motorists who were found to be drink driving.

80 drivers were stopped and tested for alcohol consumption at various road blocks set up across Singapore. 15 men and 1 woman aged between 22 and 47, failed the test and were arrested for drink driving. The highest Breath Evidential Analyser (BEA) test result was 79 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath, which is more than double the prescribed legal limit of 35 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath.

During the road block, drivers who were found to have exercised responsibility on the roads, for example by engaging valet services after drinking, were commended. This commendation initiative is part of AsiaOne’s Anti Drink-Drive Campaign, jointly organised by Traffic Police, Singapore Road Safety Council (SRSC) and AsiaOne. This year, the message for AsiaOne’s Anti Drink-Drive campaign aims to remind motorists to stay clear of drink drinking and hold onto the trust given to them by their loved ones to reach home safely.

Road Safety Concert For The Golden Age

The Traffic Police (TP) and Singapore Road Safety Council (SRSC) held the fourth and final Road Safety Concert for the Golden Age at the Home Team Academy’s Harmony Hall on Sunday, 22 November 2015. Mr Desmond Lee, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Home Affairs and Ministry of National Development was the Guest-of-Honour (GOH) to grace the event attended by about 1,000 senior citizens.

The Road Safety Concert for the Golden Age was first launched during the Singapore Road Safety Month in May 2013. The first three concerts were held in the northern, southern and eastern parts of Singapore. Through entertaining skits, songs and dances by local television and radio artistes like Marcus Chin, Yati and Poobalan, these concerts aimed to raise senior citizens’ awareness of the dangers of the roads, teach them road safety tips and remind them of the available road facilities that they could use to enhance their safety.

This fourth and final Road Safety Concert for the Golden Age also featured performances specially tailored for the senior citizens, with road safety messages in various languages weaved into them. Through entertaining performances, they learned various road safety habits and tips, as well as how to be safe on the roads.

DirectAsia.com Safer Roads Campaign 2015

The Traffic Police (TP) and the Singapore Road Safety Council (SRSC) organised the DirectAsia.com Safer Roads Campaign 2015 on Sunday, 15 November 2015 at Singapore Expo Hall 3. For the third year running, the title sponsor for this campaign is DirectAsia.com.   Mr Amrin Amin, Parliamentary Secretary, Ministry of Home Affairs graced the event as the Guest-of-Honour.  The campaign’s tagline this year is “Drive to Zero Accidents”, which serves to encourage all road users to adopt good road safety habits with the aim of zero traffic fatalities.

About 74 conscientious motorists were being commended for their exemplary road use behaviour. This brings the total number of conscientious motorists spotted by TP to 600 since the launch of the “Spot the Conscientious Motorists” programme in October 2013. These motorists received petrol and insurance vouchers sponsored by DirectAsia.com. With this programme, TP and SRSC hope to inspire more conscientious motorists to become role models and influence other road users to emulate their gracious and exemplary road safety habits.

The theme of the Gala Dinner & Concert was ‘Down Memory Lane’ and designed to coincide with the SG50 celebrations. This theme evokes a sense of nostalgia and celebration of Singapore’s illustrious past, as well as how far the SRSC has come. To coincide with the SG50 celebrations, the AAS launched a special commemorative book “Motoring 50” during the event. Aside from its nostalgic theme for reminiscing the past, the event was also a platform to thank SRSC’s donors, sponsors and partners for their support and contribution towards SRSC’s cause. This year, the SRSC had raised about $600,000 from the Gala Dinner & Concert.

This year’s road safety activities are focused on promoting a culture of road safety amongst the young.

  

TP had recently launched the “Use Your RoadSense” movement to shape the behaviour and practices of various groups of road-users. This movement is a new, innovative approach to road safety education and engagement, and leverages conversations and collaborations with all road user groups to build and sustain a shared culture of safe road use. The first dialogue session for the “Use Your RoadSense” movement was held in early April 2015. Please refer to the website www.facebook.com/roadsense.sg for more details on the “Use Your RoadSense” movement.

 

In conjunction with the movement, TP launched the “RoadPro” mobile application, which allowed users to understand what type of road user they are. There were eight road-user profiles and users have to answer several questions before the application will determine their road user profile. Based on this profile analysis, the game provided users with suitable suggestions on road safety and how they became a safer road user. TP hoped that the individualised profile will spark self-reflection among road-users on their own behaviour, and encouraged them to become safer road-users.

Last year, Volvo Trucks Singapore, together with SRSC and TP produced an educational road safety video for heavy vehicle drivers as part of the children road safety programme “Safety at Eye Level”, launched during SRSM 2014. This year, an educational video on road safety has been produced for children to educate them on the importance of using the kerb drill and making eye contact with motorists when crossing the roads. The video will be available in both English and Mandarin. It will be distributed to 160 primary schools and 152 secondary schools as part of their education curriculum on road safety.
