S’poreans react to photo of pregnant woman riding pillion on scooter without helmet on

Posted on 06 August 2015

Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.


A photo making the rounds on social media shows a slightly pregnant woman riding pillion on a scooter without her helmet on.

Comments are centred on how the woman could be riding like this in Singapore.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:


sian-half-auntie “This is what happens when COE prices are too high. The first to die are women and their babies.”
See Oh Ee, 41-year-old used car saleswoman


sian-half-uncle “Maybe the baby was the result of a lack of precaution as well.”
Sheng Hai Zi, 67-year-old ex-gynaecologist


happy-bird-girl “It says a lot about our MRT service if a pregnant woman would rather risk her life like that than take the train.”
Emma Tee, 18-year-old recorder teacher
