SINGAPORE: The annual Road Courtesy Campaign has been renamed and expanded to boost the practice of good road behaviour on Singapore roads.
It is now known as the DirectAsia.com Safer Roads Campaign, and kicked off on Friday at the HDB Hub Atrium.
Parliamentary Secretary for Transport, Associate Professor Muhammad Faishal Ibrahim, graced the event.
Online insurance company DirectAsia.com is sponsoring this year's campaign, which aims to encourage motorists to adopt exemplary conduct and practice good road habits, such as signalling early or giving way to others.
As part of the campaign, a year-long "Spot the Conscientious Motorists" programme will also be run and reward 300 deserving motorists with petrol and insurance vouchers.
Previous years’ campaigns lasted for just six months.
119 winners from last year's campaign were given recognition on Friday.
One winner, Norman Hermann, said: “I was simply driving on the way to send my wife to work in the early morning, and I looked in my rear windscreen and I noticed the Traffic Police following me, for quite a while actually.
“Then he pulled me over and I thought I had done some offence.
"But when I asked him if I infringed any law, he said: 'No actually I'm stopping you for signalling early and giving clear intention of your driving.' And he told me I was receiving an award."
