SINGAPORE - There was an increase in elderly pedestrian fatalities in 2014, according to Singapore Police Force's (SPF) Annual 2014 report.

The number rose by more than 52.9 per cent in 2014, even though there was a declining trend in fatal accidents and fatalities.

There were also more motorcyclists and pillion riders injured, as well as more speeding violations.

However, there were fewer drink-drivers arrested and a drop in fatal accidents that involved trying to beat the red lights at traffic junctions.
