Last week, a thread on the Singapore subreddit highlighted how a certain stretch of road along the Pan Island Expressway (PIE) appears to be an area plagued by traffic accidents. 

A bend along the Jalan Anak Bukit Flyover has seen an unusually frequent rate of skidding vehicles, according to several footages recorded since earlier this year. 

Multiple drivers, when driving towards Sherwood Towers on the flyover, have lost control of their vehicles when travelling up the ramp in both wet and dry road conditions. 

Just this year alone, there have been eight videos highlighting accidents along that particular stretch — and these are just the ones that are caught on camera. 

Redditors who live in residences overlooking the Jalan Anak Bukit Flyover have attested to the frequency of mishaps and some tried to explain why.
