Singapore is getting more and more touristy with many attractions for the family to go during the weekends. However, there is one establishment which is good for the family and all to go and at the same time create values for kids to understand about road safety and how to keep themselves safe on the road. What is best is that this establishment is FREE. This place is none other than the Road Safety Park in the East Coast Park!
The Motor Claims Framework ( MCF ) sets out procedures for motorists to follow when their vehicles meet with an accident. Under the MCF, all accidents, regardless of how minor, and even if the damage is not visible, must be reported to your insurers within 24 hours or by the next working day.
It does not matter if you intend to claim from the insurers or Third Parties; you must still lodge a report with your insurers. With this new policy, all insurers will operate a 24-hour hotline. Even if you enter into a private settlement with the driver of the other vehicle involved in the accident, you must still report the accident to your insurers. You may wish to visit the GIA’s website at www.gia.org.sg for more information.
SMRT, Premier, Trans-Cab and HDT Singapore Taxi will be launching a new taxi pricing by the end of this week. The new system uses the dynamic pricing system, which is a flat rate to the destination which the passengers are going. This is the same price structuring as the independent driver operations like Uber and Grab Taxi.
To speak the truth, I really do not know why the traffic in Singapore just get a to a halt when it rains in Singapore. Maybe we are so used to not having the four seasons, or maybe the wet weather just gets us down. Somehow the accidents during a rainy day gets high. When I was able to drive, I dread driving on a rainy day. Most of my accidents involved rainy days because during rainy days people tend to snooze in more. When they do so, they cannot find a taxi or even Uber car to get them to work or school. SO what happens. Parents will offer them the ride: resulting in rush and extra traffic to the road to school or work. OR even worse if the parents already left, the grandparents STEP up.
I am writing this because it is coming soon. Time really flies. 1 and half more years to go and I can start afresh again. When I got my licence, it was so long ago. 1998? I was merely 19. During those days, although automatic gear cars are coming up, all driving tests were carried out using the manual geared cars. People having ” psychomoto “problems need longer time to deploy the clutches and also shifting the gear. This is the reason why licence then was so precious, not only was it expensive to learn and pass the tests, it was a lot of chore as those days there were only 2 real driving schools : The Kaki Bukit Driving School and the Bukit Batok Driving centre. There were a lot of private instructors for hire at the same time.
The Traffic Police will not fault you on this one, BUT the NEA will. Main reason for doing so: It pollutes the environment necessarily. This is actually quite logical especially for the older cars where engine is not that efficient and filtration is not able to clean out the exhaust as efficiently as possible. You may argue that in Singapore, cars are being subjected to periodic inspections, making the vehicle less chances of breaking down and having more efficient engines to prevent pollution. But get this, even though that is true. If every car just emit a bit more exhaust. How detrimental is that to the environment? We do not want to end up like most big cities in the world where they grapple with high PSI level everyday.
Based on a recent report by Straits Times Singapore on 16 April 2016 ( Sat), there is an increase in the number of valet driving services in Singapore. More and more people are aware about the dangers of Drinking and driving and are opting for a safer way out. Keep Reading
