  1. oh my god... hope passengers will be safe...
  2. Launching soon. Anybody interested in getting this car? Come let us discuss..
  3. Imagine minding your own business on the road when suddenly some goondu driver knocks into you TWICE. What happened? A PHV (private hire vehicle) Honda Vezel was heading back to Singapore on the Causeway when they were knocked into by a Malaysian car. GG lah, knock one time and then they step on the gas pedal for another round. Driver went for the double tap. To make matters worse, the driver at fault apparently made the claim towards police that the camcar had suddenly braked, and so she could not stop on time. Upon watching the video, I say… Camcar was travelling at such a slow and steady pace still cannot press the brake pedal??? If anything it even looks like they accelerated a little bit! The camcar’s rental company also can't claim against the Malaysian car because it's a foreign vehicle. After the camcar driver requested a private settlement, she also went MIA,. forcing them to bear the cost of the damage. The camcar driver went on to say in the original Facebook post :“Buy insurance for what? Malaysia car hit us we cannot claim.” They hoped to “get some advice from the comments on how to settle without bearing the cost” , otherwise needing to pay $2000 in excess to their insurance company. Online chatter Unfortunately, it seems people in similar plights have found no solution to this either. Hope the camcar manages to get the situation resolved… ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  4. The vitriol in the comments is palpable. What happened? A motorcyclist hit a Volkswagen Golf while lanesplitting on the Pan-Island expressway (PIE) on 7th August. The motorcyclist made a sudden swerve and hit the car, causing him to flip forwards and off his bike. Looks like when an NPC glitches out in a video game. What has people in the comments riled up is that the motorcyclist was registered under a Malaysian plate, which would (apparently) make it difficult for the Golf driver to get compensation for damages as it is a foreign vehicle. Online chatter Some blamed the motorcyclist for the crash, coming up with a multitude of reasons. Others took pity on the driver’s situation, which was indeed very suay. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  5. Got money but no manners. Or basic human decency. Watch the video to see why. What happened? On 10 June, last Saturday at the Johor-Singapore Causeway, a Malaysian Toyota Alphard decided that it would be better to risk going to jail and injuring a traffic marshal instead of facing the consequences. The Toyota was seen driving on the bus-lorry lane. This is seen as soon after it passes by the camcar on screen, a bus appears behind the Alphard. This did not go unnoticed by traffic marshals either, who were shown telling the Toyota to turn around and go to the start of the queue. Making a move to go to the right, the Toyota made a feint as if to comply before righting itself and going full speed ahead, before the officers could do something. If the officers made a move to block the Alphard from continuing straight, it is likely injuries would have occurred. Online chatter Many are angry that the Toyota driver can behave in such a manner, and call for punishments such as jail or being banned from entering Singapore again. Others are resigned, saying that the driver can simply come back to Singapore with new plates and get away scot-free. Punishment? The comments about swapping plates intrigued me. So I did some research about what measures are there to find this person again. If you don’t know, when travelling by car on the Causeway you need a Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP)/ Autopass card. This card would require your registration with your passport or identification card. So in theory, even if the driver comes back with a different number plate, the authorities can still catch them by looking at the current name attached to the current number plate and blacklist it! This way, the driver will be caught on their next attempt to come to Singapore. Here’s to hoping the law prevails. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community. Join us today!
  6. PETALING JAYA - A mourning father from the state of Negeri Sembilan was shocked to find out that his son, whom authorities said had died in prison last week, is still alive. The father, who only wanted to be identified as Mr Chantren, told Malay daily Sinar Harian that the family’s ordeal started when he received a call from the prison authorities on March 3 saying his son, whom he did not named, had died in Sungai Buloh Prison. He said he did not know why his son, 19, was in prison. As far as he knows, his son was living and working in the town of Selayang in Selangor. Mr Chantren was told to claim his son’s remains at the Sungai Buloh Hospital which he did together with several other family members. “When we looked (at the remains), we noticed that the face was different after post-mortem because there were suture marks and his hair had also been shaved,” he told reporters when met at his house. Upon claiming the body from the hospital, a sad Mr Chantren and his family prepared for funeral rites and made arrangements to cremate their son’s remains. However, to the family’s surprise, they were informed just a few hours before the cremation that the youth was still alive. “We received a call from the prison authority about three or four hours before the cremation time - and they informed us that my son was still alive. “They did a video call (to show). I do not know how to even express my feelings. Our son is still alive, but whose body is at our house now?” the perplexed man said. According to Mr Chantren, officials from the prison had since gone to his house and collected the body. Mr Chantren has also requested to meet his son in prison. THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK
  7. TL;DR - A man was caught driving under the influence (DUI) into Malaysia as his breathalyzer test exceeded the maximum alcohol limit for drink driving. Ever since the borders between Singapore and Malaysia reopened, there have been many incidents reported of Singaporeans getting up to mischief and/or displaying erratic behaviors. Here is just one of the many examples: One good egg does not make a dozen but one bad apple can spoil a barrel. What happened? A man was caught by the Malaysian police for drink driving into Malaysia. Netizens managed to ‘suss out’ and found that this man is a Singaporean as he was driving a SG-registered car (based on his car plate and in-vehicle unit). Under SG law, if you are convicted of drink driving, you can be fined up to $10,000 and jailed for up to a year for first-timers. Repeat offenders can be fined up to $20,000 and jailed for up to two years. Under Malaysia law, a person convicted of driving or attempting to drive whilst their alcohol level exceeds the prescribed limit, shall be sentenced to imprisonment for a maximum of 2 years and a fine of at least RM10,000 and not more than RM30,000. Upon conviction, the driver shall be disqualified from holding a driver’s license for at least two years. It is unclear which country would press charges against him, but either way, it's bad. Let’s hear from the netizens ‘Orbiquek’... (Singlish ver. of serves you right) Kudos to Malaysia's PDRM (a.k.a traffic police) for being so vigilant and arresting the man before he could cause any accident. Takeaway Remember to always make good decisions and plan ahead - if you know you're going to drink, don't drive! Drink and drive is a deadly mix - keep yourself and others around you safe. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  8. Hi guys, Is it technically legal to drive a Msian registered car in MY other than a rented car with our Spore license? Any consequences on the car insurance coverage or with the authorities there (if kena road block)?
  9. In the early hours yesterday morning, right when many of us would have been waking up and getting ready to go to work, those on the Kranji Expressway were thrown into a panic when this accident occurred: How did it happen? The scenario went like this: the motorcyclist was just going straight ahead. At the far left, some other cars were shifting lanes, moving to the right: Disaster strikes. Unfortunately, the Kia Niro (immediate closest) to the motorcyclist made a rash and foolish decision--- to swerve abruptly. This gave the motorcyclist about approximately a second to react, which wasn't enough, of course. Cue the imminent collision. It didn't stop there, as the force of the sideswipe was strong enough to propel the motorcyclist into the flank of another car ahead; its second collision. The tumble onto the hard tar road was inevitable: Oh my god! Our hearts dropped when seeing this. Thankfully, help arrives. Upon seeing the accident that had just occurred, Good Samaritans also on the road slowed down, or stopped their vehicles to offer assistance. The motorcyclists had slowed down to help a brother in need. The one closest to the fallen rider was also seen trying to lift the heavy motorcycle off of him. Divided opinions. There was an outpour of differing opinions online. Some commentators deduced that the cars were ultimately at fault. Some shared the same sentiment, but with a slightly different take: But it was agreed that the sudden lane change far left had caused the crashes. Yes, we think so too. There were also some less-than-helpful comments, bordering on nasty: Including this Come on man. Was not the biker's fault that he got into an accident. Not cool. Hasty driving has consequences. It is hard to pinpoint and assign fault exactly, but we can say that the abrupt lane change definitely was the direct cause of the motorcyclist collision happening. It is depressing and unfortunate to see the spate of motorcycle accidents as of late, especially the recent Simei lorry incident that sadly claimed the life of another motorcyclist (Rest in peace). We urge all our readers to always stay vigilant and safe on the roads, and we hope this motorcyclist gets better soon. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  10. TL;DR – A Toyota Voxy with Singaporean plates plays the brake check game and blocks a Malaysian Van at the causeway checkpoint (Malaysian side) and ends up getting intentionally rammed in the rear. It’s common sense to behave yourself when you’re in someone else’s territory. But apparently, this Voxy driver did not get the memo. The Story According to the caption of the video, The Voxy was playing the braking game and blocking the Malaysian Van. This then provoked the Van into reversing and intentionally accelerating into the rear of the Voxy. Insurance How? Some netizen raised the issue of claiming insurance from the Van. They are not wrong. Even if the accident happens on Singapore soil, it’s extremely difficult to claim insurance from a Malaysian vehicle. Online Chatter One does not go into a foreign country and display their ego. It won’t end well. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community. Join us today!
  11. Source: https://mustsharenews.com/breaks-up-bmw/ Malaysian Girl Breaks Up With BF Of 6 Years As He Can’t Afford A BMW People often consider a long list of qualities before settling down with a life partner. While some look for traits such as caring and compassion, others value material possessions like wealth and luxury items for a sense of security. However, a woman in Malaysia reportedly broke up with her boyfriend due to his inability to afford a house or BMW. Sharing her thoughts on the UTAR Confessions Facebook page, the lady advised other females to seek ambitious men, reminding them that they wouldn’t be young forever. As the entire post is in Chinese, we’ve summarised the post in English below. Breaks up with boyfriend as he can’t afford a house or BMW On 18 Feb, the anonymous OP posted that she met her 28-year-old boyfriend in college. Although their relationship lasted for 6 years, she had difficulties imagining a future with him. In her words, It seems the OP values some degree of stability, and her ex-boyfriend’s financial situation wasn’t impressive enough. Pursued by her boss After breaking up, the woman shared that she soon entered a new relationship with her ‘ideal’ man—her superior. According to the post, the OP’s boss recently asked her out, and she accepted the invitation. The 30-year-old man reportedly has a house worth ~S$193,000 (RM600,000), a Tesla car, savings, and investments in stocks—qualities she claimed were indicative of a rich and ‘stable’ man. Advised women to seek successful men Besides sharing her love life, the OP also advised other ladies to seek men with successful careers. Reminding ladies that they wouldn’t be young forever, the OP said they shouldn’t waste their time on “men with no future”. She ended the post with an undoubtedly controversial opinion, Relationships are about building a life together In all honesty, this post could have been a troll story shared to an anonymous confessions page to rile netizens up and spark a debate. But if it were real, we find it deeply concerning that people continue to equate another person’s worth to the money they earn. While material objects are nice to have, we believe that relationships are about building a life together with our partners at the end of the day. It’s also high time for us to be independent and ensure that we can sustain the lifestyles we desire. After all, if we’re unable to afford certain luxuries of life on our own, who are we to demand it from our partners?
  12. Here's a case of bad driving judgement gone wrong. Spotted on ROADS.sg facebook page - this red Bentley Continental blocked by a road hogger on CTE towards the City on 18/4/21. The impatient driver overtakes by filtering two lanes to the left but realises that the lane leads off the expressway. In a flash, the driver signals and swerves back to the right and smacks into the innocent bike on the centre lane. Thankfully the cam car managed to catch the Bentley driver in the act. Naturally, all the keyboard warriors waste no youth blaming the Bentley for the accident... https://www.facebook.com/roadssg/videos/142665334476260
  13. So a quick disclaimer before we continue - We don't know what might happen after the Traffic Police gets alerted to this video evidence, or they might have even stopped the truck driver after the video got cut off. But what's happening in the video seems rather peculiar. Shared on SG Road Vigilante's page is this video of a Malaysian truck doing more than 90km/h on lane 1 on PIE heading towards Tuas on the 22nd of February 2021. Sometime later in the video, the Traffic Police closed in in their car and it looked like they had the intention to notify the Scania truck of its offence. Naturally, most of us would go "haha the truck sure get it from the Police!" but no, nothing happened! What a miracle for the truck driver. But, as I mentioned at the start of this post, the Traffic Police might act after watching the video. It's a little too early to celebrate yet Mr Truck Driver. Here's what some netizens had to say about the matter. What do we think? Well, if he got off without any punishment, he should consider himself lucky and not do it again.
  14. Anyone got stuck on PIE last evening for more than an hour and half? A few of us in the team did so, no thanks to someone who swerved out at the last minute, causing an accident that required a huge cleaning-up effort from the authorities. Thanks to SG Road Vigilante, we now know what caused the accident which happened at PIE's Steven Road exit in the direction of Jurong, at 630pm. While the accident itself didn't cause any serious injury, it is obvious that the Mazda 3 driver was at fault. According to the comments online, it does look like he or she was trying to avoid a frontal collision in his/her own lane by swerving into lane 2 but that unfortunately meant that the 2 motorcyclists that were lane-spliting, had to fall due to such a move. Kudos to both the tipper truck and the Malaysian van for being reactive to what was happening in front of them!
  15. Now this is pretty high level stuff. We have yet to see anyone try escaping ERP charges like this Malaysian biker did. Posted on ROADS.sg and COMPLAINT SINGAPORE's Facebook page is a clip of a Malaysian biker trying to 'siam' the ERP gantry by riding off road. The video is pretty self explanatory as we can see the Gantry on the slip road from the PIE merging into the CTE towards Ang Mo Kio, with the Motorcyclist slowly bumping along on the grass. That is some commitment there for sure, we reckon.
  16. Now this is one heartening sight! Our local police force is working hard to catch bad-behaving vehicles on our roads! Seen on SG Road Vigilante is this video of an unmarked Traffic Police vehicle zooming up fast on the AYE towards Tuas to catch a motorbike on 13th of December 2020. We can't really see why the bike was being stopped but according to the source, it is a Malaysian-registered bike with a mini rear number plate. While having such a number plate is an offence in our sunny island, we thought the police might also be catching the biker for a speeding offence or having a loud exhaust. As for the rest of us, we now know when you see a white Mazda 3, it might not be a Private Hire Vehicle but an Unmarked Traffic Police car!
  17. https://mothership.sg/2020/03/malaysian-sleeping-outdoors-kranji-mrt/ Sleeping outdoors In a few photos posted to social media, Malaysian workers unable to find accommodation have been camping out at Kranji MRT. The workers can be seen sleeping on mats on the cold, hard floor, outside the gates of the station. Their minimal belongings are either piled next to them or used as makeshift pillows. Kranji MRT is a common transit point between Singapore and Malaysia, as numerous bus services ferry workers from Kranji to Johor Bahru. Singaporeans offering spare rooms Some generous Singaporeans have taken to offering spaces for lodging in a bid to extend a helping hand to Malaysian workers. Activist Gilbert Goh has been acting as a liaison between Singaporeans with spare rooms and affected workers. In a few posts on his Facebook, Goh displayed offers of temporary housing. Well done to Goh for forking out the time to helping those in need. We need to have more people like this, willing to help those who are in need during times like these.
  18. One owe us money but drive in and out: I stayed overnight in the outskirts of JB last month. Saw locals (Malaysians) being loaded into a half-dozen Hyundai Starex and similar vehicles at one location next to a large kopitiam one morning at about 9:30am. The 'tourists' had breakfast in the kopitiam, then were ushered into the vehicles by the drivers. Whole lot then left in the direction of Tuas. Didn't look like tourists: most were couples in the late 50s and 60s, with no luggage, shopping bags and no kids. None in office wear so not foreigners or Singaporeans living in JB and working in Singapore. For all we know, they are money-laundering mules paid by a syndicate to clean up illicit funds at the casinos here. Say, give each S$9,900 (no need to declare), change into chips at the casinos, let them keep $400 (and whatever winnings), and you get $9,500 in clean money at end of casino visit.
  19. Hi all, was very unlucky and got hit by a malaysian van today. My Toyota Altis is just 3 weeks old. It hit our car on the back and obviously it's the van driver's fault as we were stationary at the red light. No injuries and did a police report together. Later then found out that Borneo motors won't do a claim against 3rd party and especially a Malaysian insurance conpany. Found out that total repair cost would be $1500 but the van driver isn't willing to pay as he keep insisting he is covered by insurance and have the rights not to pay a single cent. He then verbally agreed to fork out $1k as a goodwill but it has to be over a few months as he is a blue collar construction worker here. That guy has now gone back to jb and I don't even know if he is really paying me the $1k. We definitely won't do a claim from our own insurance as my dad was at the steering wheel and excess would be in the thousands. Any kind advise from fellow forumers here? Any reliable workshop willing to do Malaysian insurance claim?
  20. KOTA KINABALU: Malaysian police said on Thursday (Sep 6) they are investigating the death of a 36-year-old commando officer who was shot in a live-firing demonstration at Lok Kawi Camp in Sabah on Wednesday. Major Mohd Zahir Armaya was then rushed to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Kota Kinabalu, where he later died. Inspector-General of Police Abdul Hamid Bador said a probe will be carried out to identify the cause of the incident. “I am confident there is an SOP (standard operating procedure) and it may not be overlooked," he told reporters. "The demonstration was well organised but the accident still occurred.” He added: “The Sabah Police Commissioner will release a statement soon (on the development of the case).” Abdul Hamid also asked the public to refrain from posting any offensive comments online. TERRORIST ROLE-PLAY The exercise - held in conjunction with the launch of the Fifth Division Infantry and the 13th Infantry Brigade - involved a clash between a group of "terrorists" and the armed forces. All the participants wore bullet-proof vests. Major Mohd Zahir, who played the role of the terrorist leader, had fired a pistol at an army officer, causing him to fall on his knees in pain. The officer then stood up and fired his pistol at Mohd Zahir, who had a red bottle target on the back of his bullet vest. The shot caused Mohd Zahir to fall and two army personnel then pulled him to the side of the parade field. He appeared unconscious and was believed to have sustained serious injuries. An army medical team at the ceremony gave him first aid before sending him to hospital, where he was pronounced dead at about 9.20am. "WE WERE VERY CLOSE" On Wednesday, more than 1,000 people, including friends, family members and officials paid their last respects to Mohd Zahir at the Wardieburn Camp mosque in Kuala Lumpur. The late major's body was then buried at the Tambun Muslim Cemetery in Ipoh. He was survived by a widow and five children, aged between five months and nine years old. Mohd Zahir's father, veteran actor and comedian A R Badul, received the news of the incident from his daughter-in-law. “I received the news this morning and was shocked and sad. But I take it as a test from Allah," he told Bernama. “We were very close and he had contacted and met me before. I was told that the bullet went a little further than the bullet-proof plaque and hit his body.” Mirdat Mohamad, who is Mohd Zahir's uncle, said the family wishes for a thorough investigation to find the exact cause of the incident. "We wish for him to have a fair investigation, a fair trial and a proper closure. If this was negligence, hopefully it would not happen again in the future," said the 54-year-old. “We will leave it to the police and army." King Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah and his consort Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah expressed their sympathies and sadness to Mohd Zahir's family. Condolences also poured in from other Malaysian leaders, including the communications minister, the chief of army and Sabah's chief minister.
  21. Good info here for those who don't know. http://www.sgcarmart.com/news/writeup.php?AID=286&PN=1
  22. Baby abandoned at Malaysian villager's doorstep, with poignant note https://www.asiaone.com/malaysia/baby-abandoned-malaysian-villagers-doorstep-poignant-note KOTA KINABALU - A mother, apparently desperate to see her newborn son have a better life, left him at a villager's doorstep in Kota Belud some 70km from here early Sunday (June 30). The mother left a note asking for a woman of the house, a "Sumarti", to care for her child whom she had named Yusof. The mother's note said that the baby was born a day earlier and he had not drunk a drop of milk since his birth, as she was unable to lactate. The mother also wrote that she was unable to bring the child for vaccination, buy milk formula, diapers or anything for her baby, and that she was not capable of raising the child. The woman did not leave her name on the letter, but she seems to know the family as she wrote that she was sure "Sumarti" would be able to provide for the child and give him the love that he deserves. The last part of her letter read, "I want someone to love Yusof. I, as a mother, have failed to care for Yusof. Yusof has been very thirsty and hungry since early morning". Kota Belud police chief Supt Mohd Zaidi Abdullah said in the 5.30am incident, the woman Sumarti was woken up by her mother who had heard a baby crying outside their house. "Sumarti read the note and checked for injuries on the baby," he said when contacted Monday (July 1). Sumarti brought the baby to the police station and lodged a report at about 8.57am. upt Mohd Zaidi said Sumarti does not know of anyone in the village who had just given birth, and said she is unsure who left the child at her doorstep. He said policemen took the baby for a medical examination and welfare officials were alerted. He said the baby was found to be healthy and has been handed over to welfare officials for further action. It is unclear at this moment whether Sumarti will adopt the baby. The matter was posted on Facebook page Irranun Peace, which saw hundreds of users expressing their best wishes for the child and praising the mother who did not dump her baby and leave him to die. There were also quite a number of people who asked if they could adopt the child.
  23. https://www.kinitv.com/video/24ebcc40-287b-4c1c-92b8-269a02892b2e Was watching an extract of a speech from the Shangri-La Dialogue By Malaysia's Defence Minister Mohamad Sabu. He has been widely criticised by many for his poor command of English on geopolitical issues. I listened to the entire dialogue as it is and though broken at times it was easily understood and the gist of the message was not lost. He used simple English instead of bombastic words. English may not be a country first language. Are politicians expected to speak a certain level of English? I would certainly be more concerned about getting the main facts right than working hard to be a grammar nazi. English is lingua franca, widely spoken in many countries. When we go overseas to countries whose native language isn't English we speak to them in English expecting them to understand. Looking at the shift of major power in the world today should we be shocked if the lingua franca one day becomes Mandarin? Fair enough to assume the rise of China will be accompanied by the rise of Mandarin? Where will that leave the Americans? Who are widely known to perceive the world as "It's okay everybody speaks English anyway." Just interested to hear more opinions. Here's his message for those unable to view the video: So what did Mohamad speak about? Christchurch terror attack “accident” in New Zealand The video began with Mohamad touching on the Christchurch terror attack in March 2019. He condemned terrorism and praised the response of New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern to the attack. Mohamad said: “So, we understand that terrorist is no border, and no ideology, and no religion. So we have to fight with them in soft way and hard way. But I am very appreciate the role of the Prime Minister of New Zealand, how she faced with the accident in New Zealand. We appreciate him, that’s the way the world leader should behave when that thing happen in their country. So I salute the Prime Minister of New Zealand.” Mohamad then addressed the sources of terror funding, calling them the “father” and “mother” of terrorists. Elaborating on how terrorists have access to advanced weaponry and funding, Mohamad said: “These terrorists, who’s the father and mother? Because they have a lot of money, they have very sophisticated weapons. If they’re an NGO, I think they cannot afford to have that modern weapon.” Mohamad then referenced the presence of terrorists groups in Idlib, Syria, adding: “And now in Idlib, they even have rocket launcher. So who’s the father and mother? We must our intelligence must share and expose who the mother and father, then we can reduce their activity throughout the world.” China’s regional activity: “The China coast guard is bigger than Malaysia warship” Subsequently, Mohamad talked about the behaviour of China in the region and stressed the need for diplomacy, given that “the China coast guard is bigger than Malaysia warship”. Mohamad highlighted: “We know China is a border with us, China is near to us. So, any they changing of the policy will affect us. That’s why we — I know… sometimes they send their coast guard. The China coast guard is bigger than Malaysia warship. So how can we begin to chase them? So we cannot fight with them. But we will always talk to them, defend diplomacy, respect sovereignty…” Mohamad then referenced the opening speech of Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, on May 31, who stated that a clash between America and China will see many nations affected. “… and if they (China) send a warship there, then America will also challenge them. So, when the elephant fight, the grass will suffer. When elephant laugh, the grass will suffer. That’s mentioned by Prime Minister Lee last night. So we must active defend diplomacy, that we must get together, many time, this not the first time, second time or third time, many time to dialogue, because we want to keep the peace neutrality zone in this area, especially in South China Sea.” Mohamad concluded his speech by criticising the behaviour of large countries for not sticking to their rhetoric of respecting the sovereignty of other countries, as laid down by international treaties: “Big powers, they come and they give speech, they say we respect sovereignty, we respect UNCLOS, we respect COC (Code of Conduct), but their behaviour is different. That is we, the small country, especially ASEAN, we must unite together to face this problem. Thank you very much.”
  24. SINGAPORE — Drivers in Malaysia-registered cars are flouting Singapore's laws by providing point-to-point transport services for tourists here. Under the law, all cars without a Public Service Vehicle Licence — including Malaysia-registered private cars — cannot be used to provide taxi or chauffeured private-hire car services in Singapore. Singapore drivers offering chauffeured services told TODAY that the problem has been around a long time, but some of them have noticed that more Malaysia-registered cars are muscling in on the Singapore market in the past few months. They are typically seen picking up tourists from Changi Airport Terminals 2 and 4, and ferrying them to hotels in the city-centre. They have also been observed shuttling tourists to and from major tourist attractions here, such as Sentosa resort island, Gardens by the Bay and the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum, the drivers said. When TODAY contacted Malaysia-based transport companies to enquire about rates for a trip from Changi Airport to a hotel in downtown Singapore, at least five companies — Big World Transport, Ben Travel, 168 Go Heng, Ace Transport and HBC Transport Agency — offered the service. The cost of a one-way trip for four riders on a seven-seat Malaysia-registered vehicle ranged between S$50 and S$80, they said. One company, 168 Go Heng, said that it would cost S$90 if riders took a Singapore-registered vehicle, which will be S$40 more than a Malaysia-registered one. By and large, payment is collected after services are rendered, although one firm asked for payment via "banking". These firms tout their services on social-networking platforms such as Facebook, and mobile applications such as Carousell or their own websites. Many list mobile-phone numbers, so customers may book their services through messaging apps WhatsApp or WeChat, or via SMS (short message service). They advertise round-the-clock trips to and from Changi Airport and major tourist attractions such as Universal Studios Singapore and Resorts World Sentosa, as well as journeys between Singapore and Malaysia. When told of the concern that such a service was illegal, a representative of Ben Travel said: "If you are scared, you can book a Singapore car. Never mind." Responding to the same concern, a representative from HBC Transport Agency showed TODAY proof of the company's Malaysian business registration, adding: "We are a registered company." When this reporter identified himself and sought official comments, the Ben Travel representative said that his company was registered as a travel firm and has not encountered any problems at Singapore Customs after the necessary company documentation is presented. "(We do) not go to the Singapore taxi stands (to) take the customer. I just take the customers (through) all the bookings (received by) my travel company… (for) transport," he added. The HBC Transport Agency representative said that its drivers pick up customers daily and have not faced "any problem". It would be a problem if Malaysian drivers competed with Singapore taxi drivers for riders, he added. Addressing this issue, a Land Transport Authority (LTA) spokesperson told Chinese daily Lianhe Wanbao last week that all vehicles without a Public Service Vehicle Licence, including Malaysia-registered private cars, are not allowed to provide taxi or chauffeured private-hire car services in Singapore. Between January 2016 and June 2018, the authority took action against 20 Malaysia-registered vehicles which flouted the rules. TODAY has also reached out to the LTA for comment. SINGAPORE DRIVERS UP IN ARMS AS BUSINESS SUFFERS Drivers providing chauffeured services here are vexed with the growing presence of Malaysia-registered cars which they see as a threat to their rice bowl, saying their business has been hit by up to half since as early as a year ago. Some among them also felt that they were undercut by their counterparts from across the Causeway, with the Malaysian drivers offering services at as much as half the rates they offer. A driver, who wanted to be known only as Mr Lim, 50, said that these Malaysian drivers are unfamiliar with the roads here, as he has been stopped by them on several occasions, requesting directions to the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum, for instance. They also do not hold a vehicle Certificate of Entitlement, nor do they fork out road tax or provide passenger insurance in the event of an accident. "A major concern is they will spoil the image of Singapore, because should any accident happen, the tourists will not be able to claim the personal insurance (since the services) are not legal," he added. Mr Lim reported this matter to the LTA last month. A fellow driver, who identified himself only as Mr Kelvin, 32, said: "We (Singapore drivers) have the Private Hire Car Driver's Vocational Licence and the Taxi Driver's Vocational Licence. We're allowed to do such jobs from all the apps… (and provide) all the details they need — car licence, licence-plate number, insurance — but these Malaysian drivers really (don't have to do anything)," he said. The Singapore authorities should compel Malaysian drivers wishing to provide chauffeured services in Singapore to register a business here, Mr Kelvin added.

  25. WHY?!! Malaysian charged with committing incest with nieceBUTTERWORTH: A 36-year-old jobless man claimed trial at the Sessions Court here to committing incest with his 15-year-old niece at a guest house near here on Christmas Day. The man, whose name was not revealed to protect the identity of his niece, was charged with committing the offence which is said to have taken place at a guest house in Perkampungan Berapit between 2am and 4am on Dec 25, 2017. The accused was charged under Section 376B of the Penal Code for incest, which carries a jail term of 10 to 30 years and whipping upon conviction. Under Section 376B, a person is said to have committed incest if he has sexual intercourse with another person whose relationship to him is such that he is not permitted to marry her under the law, religion or custom. Sessions judge Noor Aini Yusof denied bail and fixed Feb 6 for mention pending a medical report. DPP Roslina Idris prosecuted while the accused was unrepresented. According to initial police investigations, the girl had followed her uncle to the guest house after he allegedly told her that her father had been arrested by the police on Christmas Eve. Central Seberang Prai OCPD Asst Comm Nik Ros Azhan Nik Abdul Hamid said the man then gave her a soft drink and allegedly raped her. http://www.asiaone.com/malaysia/malaysian-charged-committing-incest-niece
