    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.

    why have railings close to the parking lot?

    the railings are precisely there to prevent the silly wife from reversing into people coming down the stairs...

    I think,
    Why is this happening in an HDB estate? Hopefully HDB can do something about it before the weekend car owner's P - plater wife claim yet another railing,or worse still, back reversed into a passerby
    Can lah, tell HDB to put up poles at the carpark loh. Like dat they can practice their gostan parking.

    Anyway, I rarely drive too. And to make things even worse, I don't own a car. My bro-in-law does and I'm one of those that drive like only once or twice A YEAR. Never had any problems driving or parking.

    Haha, agreed, agreed....

    That day, while driving out of the car park, i was behind this car near the entrance. The driver just started to slowly reverse as she was too near the car in front. And when I sounded my horn, she just accelerated! Thank God I only gotten a scratch on my license plate. She din even say sorry, but just drove off!

    For them, it really boils down to where their foot are at in times of emergency: accelrator or brakes....sheesh!

    I know there're some really good lady driver out there la, but they're just the miniority...

    The wife belongs to a unquie group - people who have got driving license but don't know how to drive.
    The husband belongs to the other unique group - people who have brains but don't use it.

    Sad to say I've met quite a few members from both those groups

    4. ask his wife never to do any reverse parking

    What a joke. Hmm Maybe they should blame Kia because the parking sensor didnt work.

    Anyway, nothing new to me. I meet this kind of people everyday at work.

    Luckily, no damage to her car otherwise she would have turn around and blame you for knocking onto her "backside".
