If u have friends that drink and drive/drive without license or even both, what would u do? 

Considering that words have fallen on deaf ears, family members are well aware but nth can be done to stop

do nth n continue to let ur friend drink n drive hope he kana caught but one day if he drink n drive n kill some innocent guy on the road can u live with the guilt? 

or be decisive n report him to the police for his own good?

those who choose to drink n drive, drive w/o license n kana caught deserve no pity from anyone

A police spokesman added: "A 52-year-old male car driver had fled the scene and was subsequently arrested along Canberra Road on the same day for suspected drug-related and traffic-related offences including dangerous driving, driving without a valid licence and taking of motor vehicle without owner's consent."

I presume it's referring to the black car which beat the red light. In this case, the blue car won't be able to claim insurance.

Good thing i dun have friends who drink till drunk.

And does it mean that the 52-year-old guy managed buang at full force, then can run away from accident scene before being caught later that day?

That applies to TP property damage.

For TP bodily injury, black car insurer still need to pay.

This is always the highly controversial part about insurance claim against one who has no license or even drink driving.. If memory serves me right u can't claim insurance against one who drink n drive oso right? how is this fair to us drivers.. being punished for a mistake not commited by us

true. It takes a lot of courage to report your own friend even though you know it will be the right thing to do. I believe most people will just hope that the friend doesnt do it again or doesnt get into an accident instead.

Wow that is harsh.

Should the blue car then claim own insurance and the insurers then go after the black car owner / the druggie who drove the car? It is clearly not the blue car's fault in this case, how unjust if the owner is left bearing the short end of the stick.

You can only blame MAS.

In other countries, like India and Msia, black car insurer has to pay all claims (property damage and bodily injury).  It is up to black car insurer whether to pursue the culprit.

The rule of thumb is - if you are involved in an accident with a drunk driver, it's advisable NOT to call the Police and refrain from stating that the driver was drunk in your accident report. Or you will be unable to make an insurance claim as the other's party insurance will be invalid as he drove under the influence of alcohol

The law in Singapore protects drunk drivers. 😁
