The passengers seated on the rear are believed to be workers and the manner which they are seated behind flouted safety regulations for lorries carrying workers in Singapore.

Safety regulations

Lorries are prohibited from ferrying passengers with the exception of workers thru and fro their place of stay and workplace if the following conditions are met:

  1. No travelling faster than route limit or 60km/h, whichever is lower.
  2. For workers to seat at the rear, the front passenger seat must be occupied a person.
  3. Workers who are seated behind must seat in a safe manner which will not cause them to fall off.
  4. Workers are not allowed to cross the height of 1.1m above the deck when seated.
  5. Any goods that are being transported must be secured properly to prevent endangering the safety or road users and passengers.
  6. Fitted canopies and side railings of at least 700mm from deck and 300mm from sideboards must be installed for the lorry to be qualified to transport workers.
