The good ones always suffer as people around the world keep having a stereotype against them because of the bad done by the handful.

    This is really a case of Ma Chi being in the wrong, no 2 ways about it. Maybe with this incident, the government should make it compulsory for all new immigrants to go for road traffic tests with minimum number of practical sessions they must complete.
    ..........bad apples ........ handful?? .............. that's an understatement ............ they are taking our hospitality for granted so much so that they'd say we are suckers ........

    You must be the most patient and the most forgiving female I've heard about. Almost everyone else would have reacted (usually violently).

    Kudos to you.

    I think we need to be bit more tolerant and continue to be a friendly country, for which Singapore is regarded highly as one of top countries people aspire to live.

    there will always be annoyances, I think unfair to put communities to trial and build opinions.

    Can't say if the driver is at fault or the rich Ferrari guy, my wisdom is limited. I just suggest to go and do something meaningful :-) make someone happy.

    in my family it's different.

    my dad frequently comments on my driving, my mum tells my dad to shut up and let us have some peace. my brother tells both of them to keep quiet and i sit there quietly driving... resisting the urge to put the pedal to the metal.....

    How violently? Squeeze his balls and make him crash?

    I was rather annoyed to be honest but since his tone was normal and he was nice to me back then, I never ticked him off. Sometimes men r influenced by their elders so they think they r superior? The fact is men r physically superior.

    To be fair, there are some really nice PRCs which i considered as friends. However, i agree with you that some are taking our beloved homeland for granted. Just yesterday, I heard one PRC lady condemning Singapore at a kopitiam.....make my blood boiled.

    Yes that's right. Most of the clever PRC has high ego. They pride themselves as elite Singaporean or PR. they position themselves as useful person where our country needs them. Just like those ping pong players and swimmer

    Wonder why we spend so much money on just silver medals

    There is no integration among the elite PRC and Singaporean. They lunch among their own circles of fren.

    I find the blue collar PRC nicer. They are the group that I keen to befriend

    a good friend of mine beat you to it. he's a Singaporean with a PRC girlfriend.

    and i feel that it's good for him. at least he's not wasting money on prostitutes any more and she stopped him wasting money on irrelevant things

    No of course I am not suspecting the traffic light allows both sides to move at the same time. What I am saying here is, if the timing to change from green to red is too fast, cars travelling on a clear straight road may not have enough time to respond when they see the change very near to the traffic light. The theory is that car should slow down as they approach the traffic light regardless of the traffic light signal situation to react and anticipate the change.

    How many of us actually slow down without any reasons with a clear road ahead and ho many of us actually beat the traffic light by increasing speed so as not to be caught by the camera? If we know when it is going to change, then you will have the opportunity to react and slow down. People behind you also know your purpose and not that you feel the light is going to change anytime.

    I must qualify that I am not justifying for the ferrari incident but just my personal experiences on the road.

    Look at the video. There was more than enough time for him to stop... IF he had been driving at legal speeds!
