    Can't tolerate some of these idiots here. They've got great big cars, but they're seriously lacking in their road manners.
    So we need to use Big Lenses to shoot the liscense plates of these inconsiderate drivers

    You think they are concern with your safety????? Have you ever seen policeman hiding behind pillars to catch people who jaywalk? I've seen and my friend was caught.
    Do you think that is the right way to do? Or are they supposed to stop someone who is going to jaywalk before they see their their kingdom come. Are they going to fine an old lady for jaycrossing or are they going to help them across that road to hell?

    My story: three lanes before China Town (right in front of the new police station) coming from Bukit Merah I was about 200m away. The lights turned green for me and all cars moved off before I reached the traffic junction except 2 cars in the middle lane. As a driver what do you think? I took my initiative and went to the right lane so as to overtake them thinking the first car had a problem with his engine. 10m away I made an emergency stopped from 50km/h realising there was an old lady crossing the road infront of the car and coming to my lane! Infact, I am not angry with the old lady but the driver of the first car at the traffic. If I were him I would stopped all cars for her and make sure she is still alive before I moved off. That way I would sleep better lead a happier life.

    Yap.... It is official! Singapore gets the green light to import South African-made 5.0-liter version of the Humvee H2.

    This "car" (technically, it is an all-terrain vehicle) is a gas-thirsty monster.

    Jaywalk is common but what abt drivers didn't signal when they turn? I always let the car go first but pls, have the manners to signal u turning or not. Sometime really want to go ahead but if got accident, it might be a hit n run one in the end. Some drivers really lazy to signal, should complain to LTA n make a device to catch this kind of ppl.
    Only Sony device mostly, haha!
