Why so many car fires in Singapore?

(Updated: )

About one car catches fire every two days - that’s an average of 200 car fires a year according to the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF). Automotive experts estimate that about 95% of car fires occur due to electrical faults. For example, improper installations and rewiring your car to install add-ons like dash cams and powerful sound systems are fire risks.
