Transport Minister Raymond Lim waves at construction workers on lorry

Singapore’s Transport Minister and 2nd Minister for Foreign Affairs Raymond Lim, was on the AYE in his Mercedes when a lorry carrying 15 construction workers passed by. “I decided to wave,” Mr. Lim told Singapore Donkey. Mr. Lim was apparently moved to action upon hearing of the death of one worker and serious injury to 14 others when a similar lorry was in a horrific traffic accident earlier that morning. Because lorries hauling Bangladeshi workers have no seat belts and the workers sit in the back, there is no protection from grave injury during accidents. Mr. Lim is considering requiring lorries to chain the workers to the truck, “so that they won’t fly all over the place in a collision,” but thought it might put too much financial burden on local construction companies. Meanwhile, he reminded Singaporeans that they must buckle their seat belts at all times or risk a $300 fine. “Life is to be cherished. Don’t risk it,” he added.

    this stupid raymond lim should ask himself to take daily ride on MRT during office peak hour to find if he could breathe inside it. the fare hikes on both ERP grantries and transportation is pushing to the extreme to all people in singapore. Is this how a minister care for and look after our people?? stop digging into our hard earned money.
    you are nothing more than just a piece of junk in cabinet!!!
