SINGAPORE — The Traffic Police have arrested five men aged between 22 and 33 for their suspected involvement in a case of dangerous driving along the Central Expressway (CTE) last month.

In a news release on Wednesday (March 9), the police said that they were alerted on Feb 27 to a video circulating online showing several vehicles driving dangerously along the CTE.

Traffic police officers then worked to establish the identities of the people involved and arrested the five men during an operation on Wednesday.

Nine vehicles were seized for further investigations.

A video uploaded on Feb 27 to social media group SG Road Vigilante's YouTube channel shows a number of cars barrelling down the CTE.

Under Section 64(1) of the Road Traffic Act 1961, motorists convicted of dangerous driving may be fined up to S$5,000 or jailed up to 12 months, or both. Repeat offenders face tougher punishment.

The police warned that the penalties will be more severe if “hurt, grievous hurt or death is caused as a result of dangerous driving”.

“Offenders may also face disqualification from driving all classes of vehicles,” they added.

The police remind all motorists to abide by the traffic rules to keep the roads safe for everyone.

“The Traffic Police will not hesitate to take firm action against errant motorists who choose to flout traffic laws and endanger the safety of other road users,” they said.
