Thread: Our 'rotten' drivers.

  1. #1

    Lightbulb Our 'rotten' drivers.

    i ask myself repeatedly why are our drivers so 'rotten'?

    Our drivers pay heavily for their cars and the use of our roads. through COEs, road tax, PARF, 10 year life of vehicles, etc. we have one of the best road infrastructure here. well maintained too. cars are dumped barely 2-3 years old. so, the 'hardware' is not the problem area.

    software. getting a driving licence is not cheap and not easy too. so, one leaves the driving school with a valid driving licence has shown himself to be adequately trained to drive.

    not to mention. our TPs are diligent. parking wardens are diligent too. the amount of motoring offences with fines collected, i suspect, is not peanuts.

    our record of road accidents, major as well as minor ones, is not something we can be proud of too.

    so, what has gone wrong?

    Send a few dangerous taxi drivers to jail, a few dangerous truck drivers to jail, a few dangerous motorcyclists to jail, many car drivers to jail, that would cure the problem.

    And for those illegally parked cars, tow away the cars immediately, and keep in garage for 1 month.

    When one holds a PDL, one abides with whatever rules and regulations and just to pass and get a QDL. Then when the QDL is at hand, some still maintain good and safe driving. But some irresponsible drivers just don't understand it's not just their own lives that they are risking. They think they playing real life Initial D, NFSU2 or GT4.

    there 2 kinds of drivers who are jialat: those who have lousy characters which they display in the way they treat other road users, and those who are just simply by nature very very poor drivers with poor coordination and reaction and judgement skills no matter how hard they try or how good meaning they are.

    can't be helped leh.

    Don't think there's warehouse available for such a big quantity of cars.

    Can try Palau Ubin. All illegal parked car owners will need to go Palau Ubin to reclaim their cars back after 1 month. This, if implemented, should cure and wipe out all the illegal parking problem in Singapore mainland.
