Yes, for not mandating better safety standards for cars and taxi. There will always be blur/reckless taxi and PHV drivers and accidents will continue to happen. But better safety equipment will mean less innocent passengers will die. 

More features = more safe cab

More safe cab = more expensive rides

More expensive rides = more unhappy paxs

More unhappy paxs = more paxs blame govt 

It's a vicious cycle.

Paxs will ask govt to absorb the increase.  Ministers not going to absorb the fare increase ... No need to guess who ends up paying?

Yes. The i40 taxi don't have side airbag. I think the only taxi model in sg that have side curtain airbag is the Mercedes e220 taxis.

This model was the first to have driver airbag. Coz that time there was outcry against comfort when ppl learnt the sonata taxi had no airbag at all (just after the bugis ferrari accident) 

Anyway, seat belt would have mitigated the injury to rear passenger, but hard truth is not much ppl will bother to belt up behind in taxi and phv car coz too hasslesome for short trip. 

Yes, seat belts will always help. Many always dismiss the effectiveness of seat belts, especially in the rear seats. Only way to wake up  to this is, when one gets thrown around in an accident.

Rather than mandating safety equipment, it will be better to mandate yearly 1 day safe driving course for taxi/phy drivers.

After the course, taxi/phv drivers has to take an exam.

Fail exam means immediate suspension.

Everyone take driving lesson and tests like little kittens...  Driving between 40 -60 kph on the training and test routes. 

But after they get the card,  the horns all come out 😂.... 

So I still prefer the punishment part.

800+? Just call LTA bro, very fast one. Make them move their bikes until they give up.

Yup. Inconsiderate asses need to be fined till they learn. 
got idiots always like to park the junction on the side road at my place. Makes turning in from the road difficult as you cannot see vehicles approaching. 
I’m proud to say I helped the nation collect some money. Haha.

It's like mask, no mask argument. Can mask reduce Covid transmission? 

I would rather have an airbag between my head and the metal works than nothing.

Yearly re-training is a preventive measure similar to car servicing.

Punishment only applies to ppl who break the rule and get caught.

riding bicycle on the expressway ? What else could I say other than obi good ?

hmm...  cyclists claimed that highway is not the same as expressway, LTA say cannot ride on expressway but never say cannot ride on highway. Had seen this statement came out on this forum before.

I see that this is the driveway to the shelter of the block of flats. So I guess PHV driving in so to pick up passenger, otherwise will not bother to drive into the driveway. The camera person should be the passenger waiting for her ride.

The passenger also should be very free.

Take out camera make make S drama - Singapore drama - our actors more natural than K drama and J drama - all those look like acting one.

what is going on? Argue left right center.

I have absolutely no repect for the culture of doing mistake and argue to defend. We cannot have this third world mentality at all here. The biker should have simply said sorry and guided uncle to pass through. This could have simply made 2 happy faces.

The biker very brave dare to park like that.

If he love his bike and he see PHV he should siam far far.

PHV drivers all cock one high probability he will knock even space so big big one.

Seriously I have seen PHV turn into a lane and back tyre will kiap the kerb one.

Many times. So now I see PHV when turning will turn big big to miss the kerb.

But turn so big will eat into oncoming lane.

They come so close my poor   also shrink into peanut size.

:grin:

Maybe he don't care his bike. Bang bang lah.

Hypersonic

not defending that cyclist here but has any driver here tried to check blind spot while he/she is cycling or running?

the head can at most turn 90 degree leh ... to turn 135 degrees or more require turning your shoulders as well 

so if just turning the head, can at most see what is beside you only

just some empathy from drivers approaching cyclists or joggers from behind would be nice 

of course drivers will always say if cyclists  or joggers value their lives.... they should just stop their activities to check

😬

You jump into pond full of crocodiles you get eaten by crocodiles.

Cyclists ride on highway get knock down by fast moving cars.

If don't want to be eaten by crocodiles don't jump into crocodile pond lah.

If don't want to get knock down by fast moving cars don't ride on highway lah.

:grin:

People getting more stupid these days.

This also they don't know.

E scooter riding on expressway

You see lah stupid or not?

Yah I agree, I mean though there is space to move the driver skills may not be confident enough to pass and if scratch who is to blame, what happen if it wasn't a car but truck that was trying to get thru. 

Biker should have parked along the straight end of the road, biker was inconsiderate for his own convenience but not happy when other want to report him for causing the inconvenience.

Often I am in same situation coming out of parking lot with view obstructed by van/truck. What I can't stand are those drivers who could clearly see my car's bonnet moving, yet they don't honk, and also don't slow down. They seem like just wanting to give me a fright.
