Here is his statement

I admit that was a mistake on my end as I was kinda distracted after being mildly blinded by the morning sun and failed to see the lights had already turned red.

It’s not an excuse and I am expecting to be fined for my moment of lapse.

Potential penalties

It is an offence to beat a red light in Singapore.

Drivers found guilty of failing to conform to traffic light signals face a composition fine of $400 for light vehicles and $500 for heavy vehicles.

They also face 12 demerit points and if a driver accumulates 24 or more demerit points within 24 months, their license will be suspended.
