A video was seen uploaded onto social media of a school boy who was engrossed with using his phone and not keeping a lookout for vehicles while he was crossing the road at Block 261 Punggol Way.
Fortunately for the boy, the biker spotted him early and managed to sound his horn, slow down and stop before he reached the boy, who had already stepped out onto the road.
The biker also called out to the boy and asked him to pay attention when crossing the road and not to concentrate on his phone while he is crossing.
“Eh, don’t look down when you’re crossing the road don’t play with phone!”
Hopes parents educate children on road safety
The biker hopes that through this video, parents will do more in educating children on the importance of Road Safety.
He also hopes that pedestrians will not take roads which are not designated as a pedestrian crossing as a given that vehicles will always stop for them to prevent any accident from happening because in the end if something happens, the pedestrian will also be at fault.
