WISHING ALL MEMBERS A HAPPY CHINESE LUNAR NEW YEAR 2024

I think we have more than enough of CNY wishes, especially those of health and wealth.

As we gradually head back to our routines, I would like to make an appeal to all members here to seek to improve the overall traffic situation in the new year, and beyond. All of use here are road users, be it as pedestrians, drivers, riders, commuters. If all of us can just make small bits of improvement and to be more considerate and gracious to one another on the roads and also in public transport, I am sure that we can make it a better place for all.

I am sure I do not need to recap on the reported deaths on the roads till now, which include from the old to the very young recently. With many of us having received better and higher education than the previous generation, why have we lost of sense of consideration, tolerance and graciousness to others? Can we teach ourselves to be less impatient on the roads and to give way to others and not to get agitated when others force their way? Do we need to be bring ego into the picture every single time we feel challenged? Don't we all make mistakes as human, and why can't we admit, apologize and take responsibility when we do? (Yes, as I've said before many years ago, I'm no saint, but at least I know I have been putting in effort over the years to remind myself and I daresay I am a better road user overall, but always with room for improvement)

Are we ready to face the consequences when we choose not to follow them and cause an accident or worse, injure or kill someone? What use is it to be remorseful after running over someone, when it could have been avoided?

Does everything need to be controlled via laws and regulations? Can our upbringing, morals and values keep us in check?

Yes, it feels like there is a lack of enforcement these days, but could the Police Force be facing manpower shortage and/or a workforce with low morale, just like everywhere else including the private sector?

With the advancement of technologies and abundance of in-car, phone and surveillance cameras, we have seen countless videos of incidents and accidents being posted on social media. Does it mean that they are happening more often now than years ago before the availability of these technologies? Definitely not, right? These videos are more easily captured and much more accessible to us now, but have we learnt anything from them? Have we all taken the opportunity to use them educate our loved ones, especially the young, on how to be better road users? 

I am sure that being the biggest car forum in SG and is home-grown, MyCarforum should be an (stronger) advocate for road courtesy. Can it?
