    It's true.

    Every 3 to 5 second, 1 horn.

    If take record of the HCMC vehicle horns, I think in 1 day can reach 10 millions SC.

    10% too few.

    Zebra crossings are getting more dangerous for pedestrians. I see some drivers speed up to get past before the pedestrian -- one just whizzed in front of me yesterday.

    Yes indeed many of you mentioned my wife. I owe her a lot.

    I am more cautious now and try to be considerate... when people overtake me I just tell myself 'the driver is in a rush as he has urgent matter to attend to'

    Kent blame yourself. Some old people think that they are old and they own the whole Singapore. If they are using the proper way to cross the road, Horning them is just alert them that there is a oncoming car. Of course you slow down as well, not stun them with horn than speed pass them.

    Singaporean overtake like no nobody business. Sometime so close and they just squeeze in without signal. For me, I believe most of us got our license and behave well during the first week. Initially I signal and wait, than you notice when you signal, even a cherry QQ seems to have turbo under the hood, suddenly can accelerate so fast!?!! After a whilei learn my lesson, don't signal every time.

    erm, actually old people dont have care if they die or live. they actually thank you if you end their misery..could be lot of reasons, their family leave them, they got sickness, they are homeless, they no money...etc...

    you wont know what happen when you are old, maybe you will be one of them.

    Seriously?!? It's not funny, even if you meant it as a joke, which I don't think you did.

    I see. Its getting a bit out of context. What you said may well be true, but doesn't mean for those old people who cross the roads they don't value their lives. Could just be poor judgement or physical impairment due to old age that they put their lives in danger.

    Than for these people. I recommend them to jump into bedok reservoir. It's just below my block, I can lead them.

    If you want to die, please die somewhere and far away. Don't do it on the road, ownself die never mind, young chap like me don't want to get into trouble with the law and ruin my life.

    THIS IS OT.

    and here is the problem with the younger generation these days.

    REMEMBER: NOT ALL OLD PEOPLE are selfish ignoramuses. and YOU will get old one day, if you live to be a senior citizen

    and YOU, my young friend, are a selfish bigot.

    living in SG too long makes me more impatient and desensitized. Well look at the bright side, my first impression when you honk was she collapsed from a heart attack or something.

    I didn't say ALL, I mentioned "THOSE". Don't worry, even if I grow old, I make sure to cross the road using the green man instead of jay walking.

    Like I said, want to die, die further. Don't choose the road and harm others. You never know, for your own convenience, you choose to jay walk. One driver can't avoid in time, he/she might got into a accident. And there's a possibility that other road users might get involve.

    And I didn't mean it's only "OLD".

    Don't need geylang. Sometimes on the road you can alr see those foreign workers cycling. If they stay near the yellow line , that's fine. Some chat on the phone or text. Worst one is those competitive cyclist. You know when you cycle fast, sometimes the bicycle tends to sway left and right a bit. And my god, some hog the whole lane by cycling side by side.

    Cycling too near the double yellow line can be perilous as well. Uncovered drainage holes are pretty common, not to mention other obstacles like stones etc. Sometimes the tar-ed edge of the road has a much more obvious step from the drainage side and can be a hazard for an unaware cyclist that keeps too close the left.

    Of course some drivers for whatever reason, has a propensity to stick so close the cyclists that it puts both parties at risk. I suspect some season cyclists will cover a little past the yellow line to 1/3 road to give an obvious signal and remove all chances of vehicles trying to stick super close. But in doing so, on single lanes like the East Coast service roads, it can be a real bummer for the car behind.

    I do recreational cycling on roads and I am a driver as well. However I have no good solution except having greater awareness for users of road. Safety goes both ways. And until LTA widens the kerb-yellow line distance or come up with cycling lanes, there will be perennial conflicts between cyclists and drivers.
