  2. apparently some chee-hong passengers making women drivers uncomfortable. Grab tests new feature pairing women drivers with women passengers SINGAPORE: Grab is testing a new feature that allows its women drivers to indicate if they would prefer to pick up women passengers. The feature aims to increase safety for its women drivers, and is among other initiatives announced at the launch of its Women Programme, which seeks to lower barriers to entry for women looking to work on its platform. "Exclusive to women driver-partners only, Grab is now testing a new 'Women Passengers Preferred BETA' feature," said the ride-hailing platform on Wednesday (Mar 6) in a news release. "The feature enables women partners to indicate their preference for women passengers. When the feature is toggled on, it increases the chances of matching a woman driver-partner with a woman passenger, if there is a woman passenger in the vicinity." This offers an additional layer of safety while providing options for women drivers and users who would feel more comfortable driving or taking a ride with a woman, said Grab. Noting that its partner community is male-dominated, it added that more needs to be done to increase women participation on its platform. "Our new Women Programme aims to empower women to take up platform work by addressing their unique concerns around safety and dispelling the notion that driving is not suitable for them."
  3. https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/courts-crime/4-drivers-convicted-of-providing-illegal-chauffeured-services-using Huat ah!!! SINGAPORE - Four drivers have been fined for providing illegal chauffeured services using unlicensed vehicles, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said in a statement on Wednesday (Feb 13). The drivers have each been convicted of using a vehicle as an unlicensed public service vehicle, and driving a vehicle without valid insurance. They were each fined a total of $1,400 and disqualifed from driving all classes of vehicles for 12 months. LTA said that three of the four vehicles used were forfeited in 2018, while the decision over the fourth vehicle is still pending. All four vehicles were foreign-registered vehicles. In all four cases, investigations revealed that the drivers had ferried passengers from Singapore to Johor Bahru for an agreed fare without a Public Service Vehicle Licence (PSVL). In 2018, LTA caught 13 drivers using unlicensed foreign-registered vehicles to provide chauffeured services. Enforcement operations were conducted at visitor hot spots such as Changi Airport, HarbourFront Centre and East Coast Seafood Centre, LTA said. Deterrence operations were also conducted at these locations through the uniformed presence of LTA enforcement officers. LTA urged members of the public against engaging chauffeured services provided by persons using unlicensed vehicles, as these vehicles might not be sufficiently insured against third-party liabilities. Passengers may not be entitled to insurance recourse if they are involved in a traffic accident while travelling in such vehicles, the authority added. LTA group director of traffic and road operations Chandrasekar Palanisamy said: "Our enforcement officers have cracked down on these unlicensed public service vehicles to protect our commuters and our drivers." "We work closely with various agencies to obtain the information and investigate these incidents," he added. "LTA views these infringements seriously, and we are committed to taking severe action against offenders." Under the Road Traffic Act, all vehicles, including foreign-registered ones, are not allowed to provide taxi or chauffeured services in Singapore without a valid PSVL. Any person caught using a vehicle that is not issued with a valid PSVL to provide taxi or chauffeured services shall be prosecuted, LTA said. Those convicted face a fine of up to $3,000, or a jail term not exceeding six months, or both. The vehicle used may also be forfeited.
  4. You might disagree with her, but you’ll be hard pressed to find much evidence against her case. What happened? Content creator and entrepreneur Wendi Chan, better known as @pinkkittywendi has been stirring the pot by making the bold but likely true statement that Singaporeans are the worst drivers and/or the most inconsiderate drivers in the world. If you are angered at the above statement, I present to you all our existing articles. And SGRV. She uses the example of how when trying to enter another lane in the event that someone has stopped in front of you, Singaporean drivers are more likely to speed up and close the gap instead of graciously letting you in. To support this, she mentions how in other countries there is no such behaviour, that it is "common courtesy" to let the person signalling come into the lane. Wendi also gave her own experience of another driver giving a “very rude sign” when she attempted to turn into the lane. No further elaboration on the sign but I’m sure we can all guess what it was. She ends off the video with her confusion on this behaviour, “I just don’t get it, what is that five seconds you can lose coming in and probably going out again because there was a vehicle stuck there? It’s just frustrating.” Online chatter Almost unanimous agreement. But as always, there are outliers. What do you think about Singaporean drivers? ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

The 49-year-old car driver, Elaine Michele Ow, faces one charge of rashly endangering the personal safety of others for driving forward while someone lay on the bonnet of her vehicle. The 31-year-old cyclist Nicolette Tan Shi-en faces a charge of rashly endangering the personal safety of others by laying on the bonnet of a vehicle while in the middle of the road and obstructing the driver’s view. Tan, who was seen standing on the road in the way of Ow's car, also faces another charge of obstructing others in a public way by blocking a vehicle from moving forward. Didn’t know got this charge. Should charge more cyclists with this. Some are really pests.
  7. The cyclist desperately needs some IMH help.
  8. Her linkedin gone she must be damn ugly from the picture.... 男不男,女不女。 i wonder what she/he is All cyclist should wear camera over their helmet and report anything which endanger their lives rather confronting and start jumping over bonnet and later play scare/victim card. If only car driver wouldn't been arse while reaching left turn and allow her safe passage then this shouldn't be an issue, but I could be wrong (as cyclist seems think this world revolve around her, she could have taken picture and called police rather holding her and then jumping over bonnet). Both looking aggressive but it seems cam car is going to eat bigger pie of this shyt, she was keep saying she is rushing for some class (yoga class)? She should know better that after playing this stunt Righteous crowd ain't going to let her go till they get their justice by showing their support to that poor yellow clad women who was high and mighty few seconds ago but then become like she just saw some ghost after 5 second ride on bonnet 👻

  11. https://mothership.sg/2022/08/bus-captain-sleep-crash-jailed-yishun/ I find it kind of harsh to jail someone who's a shift worker for falling asleep on the road. While he is 100% to blame, I'm not sure I agree with a jail sentence for a mistake. Albeit it was pure luck, no one died or got badly hurt. A 9 hour minimum break. They have to drop the bus off at depot usually? Then take the shuttle back to mrt/pick up point. Then take public transport back to their own home. I mean unless they own scooters, the transit time alone is how long. Then waking up at 330 am to be in time to reach work by 530 am. That's if u work like a robot and do nothing else, a person still had family commitments etc. For us, we have no reason to fall asleep cos we can always plan our journeys or stop whenever we want to. Recently the airplane Ethiopian airlines case also. But at least that had two pilots. But come down to it, its a lapse caused by whatever situation. Whether a cockroach fell into your face, or u dropped hot coffee onto your crotch...

  16. Just learned about its existence. Quite interesting. You can see feedback from other users, etc. If more people use it, then the real-time traffic update will be more accurate.
  17. Did not see a thread on this so I start one. We have threads on reckless drivers, people not giving way to ambulances and all that. One thing I notice is that it tend to be negative. So why not start a thread with videos on instances where we see drivers being helpful? My video attachment is too large so I only add screenshots. Basically, what happened was that I saw a motorcyclist drop his bike or something and a helpful driver ran out of his car to help the motorcyclist. Will be nice if we can see more videos on helpful drivers rather than just reckless drive rs.
  18. I did a search, yep! No similar thread, and I also searched on which car brands had this issue and you will be surprised! https://www.google.com.sg/search?q=why+bmw+drivers+don%27t+use+indicators&oq=why+bmw+drivers&aqs=chrome.2.0j69i57j0l4.4465j0j4&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 Of the 20 top brands I looked, BMW outnumbers the rest by far? So are there a unique breed, which gravitate to them? Psychologically speaking, there are such syndromes, eg back in the 80-90s, there was a "Honda Driver Syndrome", and insurance companies used to load these drivers since they were more likely to take risks and such.. So here goes, are there reasons for this style of driving? Oh and some pics to accompany the story.. (caveat, all in jest bros, will still have kopi with my BMW friends )
  19. New rules set to be laid down next month stipulate that private-hire vehicle drivers must be Singapore citizens who are at least 30 years old. This comes amidst discussions between the National Taxi Association and National Private Hire Vehicles Associations. One of the key concerns prompting the proposed rule is the problem of youths taking to driving private-hire vehicles full-time. As of February 2019, there are 41,000 registered PHV drivers, of which 40 percent of them are under 40 years old. Over 6500 of them are below 30 years old. However, the data does not include non-registered PHV drivers who operate “hitch” services. Hitch drivers are allowed to only make 2 ride-sharing trips a day, however many are known to take on more rides across different ride-sharing operators. The NTA and NPHV are also in discussion about issues such as contracts between transport operators and drivers, drivers’ insurance and the issue of whether PHV can do roadside pick-ups. The result of these talks will be announced next month. Article from redwiretimes. No official news. Looks dubious. But been trending around some dealer websites also. If really true how many will be affected?
  20. I was heading home today from changi airport all the way to jurong using ECP / AYE.... encounter alot of road hoggers .... 80% are taxi-drivers. hardly can see a taxi driver who will give way but there are nice taxi drivers who will give way ..... i guess most of the taxi drivers's mindset are "what important is my bussiness and time ahead, what happen behind is none of my bussiness." their tradmark speech when encounter accident... if you hit their taxi " i want $xxx.xx amount of money otherwise , i will report you to your insurance .... my claim amount will be very high cos i can claim lose of income , lose of use of vehicle to go geylang ,and all kind of crap.." if they hit on your vehicle " please dont report to my insurance and if possible dont repair lar, no damage mah.... i got 1 wife not working , 5 kids and 2 mistress at geylang to feed"
  21. Formula One drivers will be awarded a point for the doing the fastest lap in each race, starting from the season-opening race in Melbourne on 17th of March. Similar to Formula E, the point will only be awarded if the driver with the fastest lap actually finishes the race in the top 10. According to Autonews, the ruling has been approved by the Sporting Working Group and the Strategy Group. However, it still needs to be passed by an e-vote of the Formula 1 Commission. This is not actually a new rule as a similar rule was in place during the first 10 years of Formula 1 in the 1950s.
