A FORMER mini-bus driver who caused the death of a pedestrian by negligence was fined S$8,000 (RM20,632).
Mohd Hanafi Maulud, 53, was also banned from driving for eight years after he admitted to causing Ayasamy Soundarajan’s death while making a right turn into Bedok North Road last November.
A district court heard that Hanafi was driving the vehicle along the Bedok Reservoir Road at about 6.20am on Nov 21. As he approached the signalised junction of Bedok Reservoir and Bedok North roads, he noted that the traffic signal showed only a green light without a green right-turning arrow.
Hanafi made a right turn into Bedok North Road and knocked into the 53-year-old pedestrian. Ayasamy was pronounced dead at 6.53am. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
