A member of “COMPLAINT SINGAPORE” sent us a video showing a driver of a reckless van – GBH 9745 J, almost caused an accident at a traffic junction.
If the in-car camera driver did not react fast enough, this accident may not be avoidable..
The incident happened on 27 August 2020, evening time, near IMH, Buangkok Green Area.
