Student, 12, knocked down at zebra crossing outside school

At Zebra Crossing !!! :mad:

http://www.straitstimes.com/breaking-ne ... l-20130327

A 12-year-old student was knocked down by a car at a zebra crossing outside his school on Tuesday afternoon.

The Secondary 1 student from Saint Andrew's Secondary suffered injuries to his elbow and back.

He was put under 24-hour observation, said Mr Liang Sea Fong, the school's communications liaison officer.

Mr Liang said a teacher from the school who saw the accident called an ambulance, informed the boy's parents and the school.

:sad:

Time to remind the children to take care at all times.

Please remind all your school going kids to make sure all the approaching cars stopped before the zebra crossing before they cross the road. Some drivers simply do not know when to step on the break.

The zebra crossing at the traffic junction of Jln Jurong Kechil and Upper Bt Timah is also an accident waiting to happen area, especially in the morning after drivers dropped off their children at the school.

I am most afraid of drivers in the morning...they are like sleepy heads. For this reason, i walked my son to school even though it is just 5 min away...explored different paths but no matter what, there is this fear.

Drivers now don't seem to know how to apply brakes :mad:

Another area to remind your kids to be careful is at MOELC Bishan, especially at dismissal timing.....lots of cars and the students crossing without a care....2 weeks ago saw a hci boy was nearly hit by a car when he crossed the road just as the car was moving forward......

Quite scary. The reckless drivers must be punished severely.

Agreed.

Occasionally, pedestrians are reckless too

I agree too. But accident at zebra crossing is a worrying thing esp when we ask our children to walk home on their own.

Hope the student recovers soon. His mother must be in shock.
