Mr Gerald Giam Yean Song asked the Minister for Home Affairs (a) how many road traffic accidents involving car-sharing vehicles and resulting in casualties have there been in 2021 and 2022 respectively; (b) whether the incidence rate of such accidents is higher than that of the general car population; and (c) what measures is the Ministry considering to reduce the rate of accidents involving car-sharing vehicles.
Mr K Shanmugam: The Traffic Police do not track whether vehicles involved in accidents are car-sharing vehicles.
Our traffic safety measures are aimed at reducing the rate of all accidents. The Traffic Police will continue to engage and educate motorists to practice safe driving practices and enforce the law.
