    Waiting to see the face of this 20yr old kid on the papers soon.
    Maybe he's a rich man son.
    Or white horse.....so only minimum sentence and a stern warning.

    This case probably overshadowed by the Romanian embassy hit&run case.

    anyway we can only wait and see...

    See how hard he would be in prison.

    We assume that he'll go to prison. He may well just get a "heavier" fine and community service so we do not "ruin his future".

    Money is replaceable. Time is not.
    Sadly if you came here you'd find that each week dozens of people are caught driving while their licenses have been revoked for various reasons including unpaid fines, PCA offences (proscribed alcohol limit, ie driving drunk), hooning, and other serious charges. People don't find loosing a license a problem, they just drive regardless.

    Fines that you will be paying for life however might just do the trick, because loss of license hasn't worked.

    Also hardly see any TP around these days. IMO, TP should step up their patrol. More and more reckless drivers nowadays.

    Even vans/lorries/pick-ups drive on outer lanes on highways like nobody's business nowadays, and hogging the road some more. Last time where got like this? I was driving a company van about 15 years ago. Only on the inner most lane on highways, unless want to overtake.
    u got ur outer n inner most lane mixed up.
    guess its all the same, then n now.
    just that u don't see the log in ur eyes.

Some of the kids have budgets of 150K AUD for a car when they whinge to mummy and daddy that they need a car to get around in Perth because the MT is so bad. 150K in Australia buys you a WRX with 80K left over for hotting it up and that goes a long long way.

    The sad part is 99.99% of these kids can't drive to save their lives. A couple of years back one of the local motorsports clubs had 20 of them show up for a race day with their super ricers and not one of the kids was able to post a decent time around a race-track, even after quite a few practice laps and race laps... I rest my case.
    we were well trained by our colonial master.
    we send our anti socials down under.

    kidding la,
    sorry for SOME of the singaporeans that display such acts,
    but u can't deny that the majority r well behave.

    Yes we did send the $hit to Australia and still do, speaking as one of the expat Colonial masters

    Most of the Singaporeans here are well behaved yes, no dress sense though! Some of the girls get pretty wild though, right proper SPG's they are.

    The worst offenders are the local trash, which is my whole point, trash is trash, regardless of it's origin and they all are now behaving in much the same manner worldwide.
