    2020 Sad to say tampered mileage cars still exist

    I said it before but I'll say it again. If the LTA can require cars to go for inspections, its an easy task to record the odometer reading of the car at the time of inspection against the chassis number (because number plates change). The public should be able to carry out an online check for the last inspected odometer reading of any car to verify that the odometer reading has not been tampered with. Then ROV and now LTA can cook up elaborate Area Licensing Schemes, then ERP, and now satellite ERP but cannot solve such a simple issue? No revenue for them mean not a problem?

    Odometer clocking is so commonplace that it could be any dealer saboing any other dealer.

    Nice of him to leave his face behind so the police can identify the driver of the hit and run.

    Have you ever tried cleaning your MAF sensor ?

    One school of thought says that if it ain't broke, don't fix it. On the other hand I believe what Scotty says more than you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPfOyfQOYeo

    Most honest used car ad ever?

    Truly a lethal strike. 😁 However, he may be doing this as the opening act in the process of opening a lemon law claim process by quantifying the degree of financial loss and the way by doing that is putting up (and selling) said car and describing it as accurately as possible. The way its been written suggests that it has been written carefully and factually to avoid any potential claim of slander or libel.

    Don't confuse brake fade with braking efficiency - brake fade does not happen immediately the moment you start using it. Please read up what brake fade means before drawing such conclusions.

    Motorist seeks court order to renew 5-year COE

    Do you renew road tax in 6 or 12 month chunks? By your logic, all must renew in 12 months only because those who renew 6 month get to earn interest however small it may be. Same principles apply.

    Now people are starting to think deeper. LTA PR department busy. Some more CNY coming...

    Although there are relatively few Maseratis around, they seem to be getting involved in a disproportionate amount of high profile incidents: This Cantonment Road one Henry Yeung (NUS Prof) - Lorong Chuan collision Lee Cheng Yan (under driving ban) - Bedok Reservoir causing hurt to TP and resisting arrest
  14. The rule of thumb that prevention is better than cure still holds true for me, rather than bleating incessantly that the injured should have been sent to Mt. E, or if the car should have been lifted and victims dragged out from under - don't ignore the fact that the Vezel managed to Dukes of Hazzard launch off the ledge horizontally which suggests considerable speed mowing down the seated Filipinos, then consider those victims landed in the driveway below, and then the Vezel after having finally nosedived into the wall, lands back on top of them again, you could have a fully equipped emergency room from TTSH, NUH or SGH right in than driveway and probably not prevented the inevitable. All people can do in the last few pages is focus on criticizing recovery efforts and procedures and less about preventing at least some of the circumstances that could have led to the incident in the first place: Press wrong pedal Mechanical failure Fatigue Carelessness Distraction Especially the last item, ridesharing companies are quick to compartmentalize and isolate their role in incidents (calling them driver-partners for example), in particular the interface with which drivers use to get their next job. There needs to be a better/safer way for drivers to receive their next booking offer (e.g. vehicle must be stationary) rather than trying to grab a job while on the move (often with passengers still on board). Your question about "how to ensure" - the problem is you cannot ensure anything in life (even whether the next breath I take would be my last). I could have a perfectly clean bill of health and suffer cardiac arrest, everyone has a chance of that. Nor can you confirm-chop-guarantee the roof that you sleep under cannot fall upon you when you sleep, because there is always this random chance that there's a big enough earthquake bla bla, so on and so forth. Safe driving everyone.

    Motorist seeks court order to renew 5-year COE

    ......and the Parliament is made up of elected representatives of the people. And when the people raise feedback, it is the responsibility of the government to look into it and give debate whether to change the law (or otherwise). Its high time that we the people be more critical and participative in laws and regulations that matter to us, than sit and assume that the G will take care of us for our best interests. In any case, the People's Hero Koh isn't even seeking to profiteer from the today's lower PQP as he is requesting to convert his Nov 2014 5 year COE to a Nov 2014 10 year COE (even though the PQP in Nov 2019 is about half that of 2014). If LTA can construct such a complicated taxation system of OMV, PARF, COE and tiered scrap rebates, and more recently add on CEVS, I am sure they can figure out something that is much less archaic than simply condemning perfectly good cars to deregistration just because of the COE renewal scheme it is on. While on that note. Someone needs to ask LTA to explain why it costs $100 to transfer an existing number plate to a new car, yet it takes $1300 to transfer an existing number plate to a used car. Really need 13 times the effort meh?
