    And why should we be giving way to YOG vehicles ? Is it an traffic offence not to give way to YOG vehicles during YOG ?

    We should show the vistors the true conditions of our "world class" transportation system. Let them get stuck in the true blue singapore daily jam, with ERP in operation. Best, let them take the MRT from Jurong East or Raffles, Cityhall MRT during the peak hours.

    We should not hide the truth

    Not looking for a politically correct answer, but it seems wrong on how they are packaging the whole event to the country's citizens. It's like being force-fed and a demand of the rights to be supported. It's rather a turn-off, imo.

    Maybe this YOG will be more successful in China, their next destination.

    All the best to the event. Support Singapore!

    one more thing i would like to know...the news only said about giving way to YOG buses. what about those merc taxis i see on the roads with YOG "Give Way" logo?? are those real or fake?

    furthermore, speed limit for buses is 50/60kmh. if i'm doing 80/90kmh on a highway and a YOG bus comes up right on my tail, should i be giving way to a speeding vehicle or report the vehicle for speeding?

    You will be flagged down.. For not supporting YOG. All photographic equipment found onboard your vehicle will belong to the State, and used for shooting the YOG event.

    The YOG song puts me off. Such a talented Local artist made to sing that stupid song.. Dun tell me its composed by him too ?

    can't blame those in the 88% group. they had more important things to do as what we've been 'drilled' to do, work and work and work for $$. after that chill out @ kopitiam after a long day

    Well this being the first and inaugural game of all future YOG being held here
    in our little red dot country, really can't blame the Govt for being overwhelmed
    and as usual showing the world our effiency in organising events.

    I think the song is good, the cheer (JJ Lin one) is bad. In fact, I think the YOG SONG sounds better than our NDP theme song. Somehow weaving in ideas of patriotism doesn't work for me when you spam "Singapore" throughout the whole song. The older songs can weave in patriotic ideas and still sound good, but the recent songs have been disappointing. Maybe it's just that being proud of your country works better than being proud of "Singapore". Getting talented singers to try and make it more appealing doesn't help much, as seen with the YOG cheer.
