I have been providing feedback to the TP for a number of years. (link in my email below)
The TP have acted on my feedback but the few feedback are insufficient to paint the real situation of our roads. Businesses must be convinced that unsafe practices to lower costs are unacceptable.
Providing feedback to the TP will take at most 10 minutes of your time and if possible, include photos.
Preventable accidents have resulted from our collective silence. The next victim could be our loved ones.

I refer to your email of 19 Oct 2016 addressed to Commander Traffic Police, Sam Tee, with regards to your call for more enforcement actions and measures against errant heavy vehicles. My name is Efran, Head Service Quality for Traffic Police. On behalf of Traffic Police, I will like to thank you for raising your feedback to our attention and for recognising our road safety efforts thus far. We indeed acknowledge and thank the various key stakeholders, community partners, and of course many other law abiding motorists for coming on board with us to achieve safer roads for Singapore.
2 Please be assured that Traffic Police will continue with our efforts to enhance road safety through education, engagement, and enforcement. Our Patrol Unit has been alerted on your feedback and will take them into operational considerations during their daily deployment on the roads. Once again, I thank you for engaging Traffic Police. Have a great week ahead.

AC Sam Tee
Dear AC Tee
I refer to my numerous feedback on overloaded heavy vehicles, improperly secured/unsecured cargoes, etc. link
While I appreciate the TP have stepped up enforcement measures, it appears additional enforcement/deterrent measures are needed to prevent unnecessary accidents.
It is doubtful that these heavy vehicles are carrying cargoes in a safe manner. (images below)
Please increase enforcement measures and ensure that businesses do not blatantly flout safety rules.
Thank you and have a nice day.
