Team Superman wins DC Justice League Run 2015

It’s official. Team Superman emerged the winner of the inaugural DC Justice League Run 2015 held today morning at Sentosa. More than 5000 runners turned up sporting the colours and gears in support of their favourite superheroes: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and The Flash.

In a bid to determine the fastest of the Justice League, sides were taken as participants ran 5 KM to represent their respective superheroes, all but to bring honour and glory to the team. Team Flash supported the fastest superhero of the league, or so they believed; Team Wonder Woman was all about girl power in their allegiance to the Amazonia Princess, Team Batman was outspoken in their support for the Dark Knight, and Team Green Lantern believed in the peacekeeper of the intergalactic Lantern Corps.

Safe driving tips

According to the Singapore Traffic Police, the road safety situation in Singapore has seen an improvement in the first six months of 2015. While traffic fatalities dropped by 12.4%, there was an increase of 5.8% in motorcyclist injuries and a 4.9% increase in injuries to elderly pedestrians.

This shows that there is still a lot that we can do to improve road safety. Here are some safe driving tips that I observe while driving. Feel free to add yours in the comment section.

Don’t be distracted.
Concentrate on the road conditions. All your texting and social media updates can wait. If you must, ask the passenger to help you read and reply to text. Or use a voice command app. But seriously, just wait till you reached your destination.

Don’t speed.
Observe the speed limit of the road. Drive at a speed that is suitable for the road condition and your comfort level. Don’t speed. The amount of time you save is not worth the danger you put yourself in.

Don’t tailgate.
I know Singapore very small. But there is enough room on the road. Keep a safety distance from the car in front of you. Don’t tailgate. You never know when the car in front might need to E-brake.

Plan your journey in advance..
Nowadays there’s no reason for you to not plan your journey in advance. If you are not familiar with the road, use those turn by turn navigation app on your smartphone to guide you. And if you still miss an exit, don’t worry. The next exit is just a bit further down the road.

Practice defensive driving.
This is the most important part of safety driving. Always be on a lookout for dangers on the road. Be prepared to take evasive action to avoid accident. Learn to lookout for dangerous drivers. I always try to keep a distance from drivers who don’t maintain a proper lane discipline and those aggressive drivers.

To encourage good road safety behaviour, the Traffic Police is partnering with Singapore Road Safety Council and Shell Singapore to award all license holders who have maintained a demerit-free status over the last five years with a Demerit Free Driver car decal. If you haven’t collected your decal, go get it at your nearest Shell petrol station. You might win a goodie bag worth $80 or 3D2N stay at The Fullerton Hotel. What are you waiting for?
