    Default STOMPnews - What A Joke!!

    It's all the railings' fault!

    Jack Tan, 30, questioned the sensibility of putting up railings close to parking lots when the rear windscreen of his car was smashed while his wife was reversing it near Block 119 Marsiling Rise at 10.30pm on Wednesday (28 Feb).

    The property agent told STOMP, "My wife heard a loud sound as she was reversing and after recovering from the initial shock, realised that it was the rear windscreen that had been cracked and broken."

    "Why is this happening in an HDB estate? Hopefully HDB can do something about it before the railings claim yet another victim," Jack lamented.

    Jack and his wife will now have to pay hundreds of dollars to get the windscreen and the back door replaced.

    Hey! you're right. It does look like No Parking, so i guess it's their fault, or maybe they can argue that the marking is insignificant

    Jack should do either one of these to prevent future incident:
    1. change a wife, who is a better driver,
    2. change to a more expensive car with a reverse sensor as standard,
    2. ask his wife never to park in a HDB again,
    4. ask his wife never to do any reverse parking
    always the Light, .... always.

    Look carefully, victim's picanto has no backside. How does his car rear windscreen hit the railings ? I guess he reversed too much.

    I mean he wanted to park illegally.

    So someone reverses too much into a no parking space next to a staircase for residences and railings for safety reasons blames the railing and not himself?

    Maybe we can see someone taking lift to the 3rd floor, getting trapped in one due to power failure and saying why are there lifts there.
