A man was jailed for eight weeks and banned from driving for five years on Tuesday for causing the death of his elder brother and drink driving.
Jaswant Singh, 54, a technician, who had pleaded guilty, was giving his brother, Mr Harbans Singh, then 54, a ride home when the accident happened at the signalised T-junction of Bukit Batok Road by Bukit Batok West Avenue 7 on July 25, 2009.
The court heard that they had earlier attended a ceremony at the house of their eldest brother, whose son was getting married the next day. They had taken some beer.
Jaswant was riding along the extreme left lane of Bukit Batok Road at about 12.30am that day when he failed to keep a proper lookout ahead for a car that was slowing down when the traffic light changed from green to amber.
