Heavy Vehicle Accidents – How to prevent?
A SMRT bus overturned along Dairy Farm Road last Sunday resulting in one death with two others injured. In the past three years, accidents involving heavy vehicles accounted for about 9 per cent of the total number of accidents and the number of traffic violations committed by them has also increased by nearly 16% from 10,882 in 2010 to 12,583 last year. Do such accidents happen because heavy vehicles are too long and therefore hard to control, or is it a matter of skills improvement for the drivers? Is Dairy Farm Road a dangerous road prone to accidents? Frontline investigates.

For the past half a year, residents in a block of flats in Jurong West were harassed by loansharks one after another. While some received threatening telephone calls, others got letters, even though they are not borrowers. What exactly happened? Similarly in the east, a lady continuously received harassment calls at home chasing for loan repayments. Despite her repeated clarifications that there was no such debtor, the calls continue. Is this a case of loanshark harassment or pure scam? A former loanshark shares with us the truth about illegal money-lending. Frontline reports.
