Not so many years ago, there was little in a car to draw the driver’s attention away from the road beyond the windows, mirrors and speedometer. Today, even a regular mid-market car can feature an overabundance of displays, controls and meters, all vying for attention and increasing the risk of driver distraction.

Toyota is researching how best to keep the driver focused on the road without sacrificing any of the benefits offered by sophisticated on-board information systems, working with Microsoft and Infosys as its partners in DARV 1.5, the latest generation of Toyota’s Driver Awareness Research Vehicle.

Singapore Power has undertaken a $2 billion project to upgrade the power supply network, and have built two 200 metre temporary roads, which lead the heavy vehicles directly to the construction sites from the expressway, at the cost of $4 million. The roads have been built so the heavy vehicles could bypass schools and residential areas. This comes after the rise in fatalities from accidents involving heavy vehicles – in 2013, 44 died from collisions with them, a 40% increase from the 32 in 2012.

One of the temporary roads, which opened in May and spans an extra lane of a stretch of the CTE, will allow the trucks to enter and exit the May Road construction site without utilising the cramp and narrow roads close to Hong Wen School and the residential neighbourhood around McNair Road, Towner Road and May Road. The first of the 2 roads were opened in January. Once again, an extra lane was built along a stretch of the expressway, this time the PIE, in the direction of Bendemeer in Geylang Bahru.

Cars entering Malaysia via Johor will have to pay a levy of not less that RM50. This announcement comes after Singapore decided to raise fees for foreign-registered vehicles entering the Republic from July. Malaysian Deputy Transport Minister Abdul Aziz Kaprawi believed the levy is fair, for the Singaporean currency is stronger than the Malaysian Ringgit. So far, there has been no news of when the new levy will be implemented, although it is expected that they should start charging the levies at the end of the year.

Singapore's Ministry of Transport has responded to the matter, and has expressed concern that Malaysia is intentionally picking on Singaporean motorists, for only vehicles entering Malaysia by Johor will be charged. That said, should the levy be introduced, it is expected that less cars make the journey across the causeway.
