Survey shows drivers in Singapore are irresponsible. Do you agree?

SINGAPORE: A road safety survey released on Wednesday by insurance company, AXA, pins this irresponsible driving behaviour down to poor time management and lack of route planning. The three dangerous behaviours committed most often are going through traffic lights which have turned amber, driving speed in excess of more than 10 kilometres above the speed limit and switching lanes without signalling.
