我終於知道曲終人散的寂寞 只有傷心人才有

I am putting up a thread on the third world drivers on our first world roads. Such drivers should be severely dealt with and removed from our roads and banised to use our 'Worse Class' Public Transport for the rest of their miserable lives.

The first fellow to get mentioned is the driver of GV5783S, who stays in Bedok. It is a Company Registered Vehicle of SembCorp Engineers. If you also stay in Bedok, take note! It is better to be safe than sorry.

This was sent to me by a colleague, who has several close encounters with this reckless van driver. The first of these being around June/July 2004. My friend finally confronted the driver one day and he was nonchalant: "Sue me if you not happy."

Sadly, even the TP can't do anything as well as long as nobody's killed. (Incidentally, a lot of people has already written to the papers about such matters and as usual they get the same bureaucratic reply from those goons.)

The word document details the typical behaviour of this driver of van number GV5783S. (Apparently, if you run into this clown every morning, you can sort of write it down already.)

On a tangent, do you see a lot of 'Q' plates these days? I haven't. I wonder why.  Smiley

I think the first drastic reduction in Q plate cars was when the
tax write off was reduced. It used to be worth paying the even
more grossly inflated Q plate COE rates as you could write it off
as a fairly substantial amount in taxes.

Also probably doesn't help that normal S plate COE prices fell through the
ground.


On topic: The driving standards as well as road "courtesy" of the assholes
driving in Singapore these days is nothing short of fucking atrocious.

It was nowhere near this bad before I left for the States, I come back to
this inept Mad Max style shit all over the place now.

I've learnt that in order to maintain my sanity on the roads, I had to drive
like a fucking maniac, that is, an even bigger maniac than those on the road.

I've come to quite enjoy it  Tongue

It is the self-serving ethnic that this society has cultivated, isn't it? The selfish everything for oneself, kiasu, kiasi attitude.  Sad

The relentless pursuit for material wealth, status and eventual financial security mindset? The two holidays a year, large fund/share portfolio, latest mobile phone mentality?

It is sad but I see more of this daily.

From the lady sitting at the kopi tiam throwing soiled tissues on the floor to people standing in front of train doors preventing others from alighting.

I think you pinpointed the demise of the Q-plate.

I see a revival of weekend cars in some quarters a year or so ago.  Smiley

Oh yes, there is also a mentality that one must own a car here to have made it.

Two words:

AUTO ASSAULT!

Yay!

Blow those guys away with the turret mounted weapon!  Wink The rudeness here is shocking and the drivers appear neurotic. When I was in Shanghai, the drivers were aggressive but not neurotic and angry like the ones here. The ones here are on hair-line triggers, ready to explode at any slight.  Shake Head

My alternative to ERP.

A 70-ton tank moving at 60km/h.

If you are moving too slow, the tank will crush you, if you are too fast, you crash onto the back of the tank. That will deal with both the road hogs and speeding morons at one go. And at the same time, keeps everyone to the speed limit.

All I can say is -- let them try to edge me... I need to take Lorelei for body work ANYWAY. And 2 tons of steel makes a little more impact on a Toyota Vios than the Toyota Vios on the 2 tons...

In other news, drivers here are not quite as crazy as those in Krung Thep.
