It is time to ensure safe transportation for migrant workers (PIE accident leaves one dead, 16 injured, April 21).
This is not the first time such an accident has occurred and injuries sustained.
When our children ride in cars or school buses (which are safer than the backs of trucks), they are legally required to be strapped to their seats.
When someone else’s child comes to Singapore to earn a living, it should also be our responsibility to ensure he is taken care of in the same way.
I appeal to the authorities to pass a law to ensure the safety of workers being transported.
