Traffic Safety Day

This was the scene outside our giant mall, Vivo City, a couple of weeks ago. The traffic police designed a road course for pedal carts . Anyone who wanted to try the course could sign up and drive at designated times. It was great to see all the kids mistiming the stop lights and piling up behind each other. They also had a tendency to follow each other everywhere. There were many different routes, yet it seemed that there was only one line of traffic most of the time. The police volunteers were mostly youths involved in a Singaporean version of Boy and Girl Scouts. They had a difficult time stressing the traffic signals. Some of the drivers blew right through red lights just because the driver ahead did.
