    there's always another exit at Siglap Rd if one misses the Marine Vista one. SG isn't that big, why do such abrupt lane-change?

    There's a stretch along ECP at around where this incident happened, that is said to be haunted. IIRC it's about some never ending road no matter how much you drive.

    I must confess I am one of those drivers. Very impatient and tends to speed most times. Why like that, so kangcheong har?

    My recent trip to Scotland, I rented a car. I keep a very close distance from the car in front and was told this is rude! Like that how to drive here in Singapore? Orchard road will jam till Havelock Road leh.

    People will give way even they have the right of way. They wave at each other when they pass thanking each other for giving way. How can we make this happen here? 8 million on this tiny dot can?

    Can we slow down now since government says they are going to take good care of workers. I promise to slow down.

    agree
    just think for a moment if u speed, how much time u gain? few minutes? but if u hit in to accident, how much time you lose, also you may lose your life or other.

    In the end, having other passengers in the car, drivers are supposed to be adults, who are rational and responsible for the lives of people in his hands. Taking unnecessary risks is just not being responsible to those who entrust their lives to you.

    One thing for sure, the car's insurance will not want to cover them, since the car is not designed or legally insured to cover 6 occupants.

    Don't think nationality matters. I have seen crazy Singaporean drivers too often.
