Traffic jams are not rare in Singapore. However, they do get pretty heavy especially when there is an accident as drivers slow down to catch a glimpse of car plate numbers. It is believed that one would strike 4D as these numbers are lucky.
It had become a natural response if you are Singaporean or lived here long enough, to just subconsciously look out for the car plates as you pass by the accident site. There is no record of when this practice started or by which ethnic group though we are pretty sure everyone would love to strike 4D once in a while.
