EMBASSY CARS ACT LIKE THEY ARE KINGS ON SINGAPORE ROADS

Of late, there have been many incidences of lawless and reckless foreign embassy car’s drivers violating Singapore’s traffic laws and road rules. In fact, I was surprised when one of my friend forwarded the pics that he had compiled of those incidents that happened recently, and I was shocked to see that there are many embassies’ cars totally ignoring our traffic law and order. What makes them so bold enough to openly violate our laws, and aren’t they afraid of being summoned by our TP or Ministry of Foreign Affairs?

Last week, I felt concerned enough about Philippine Independence Day celebration saga that I wrote to the Philippine Embassy saying that I am sorry for the harassment the organisers have gotten, but that I also believe that there is some level of miscommunication and cross-talk between the organisers of the event and those that protest (at least some). I assured the Philippine embassy in Singapore that the protesters do not mean ill-will to the people of Philippines and that they appreciated the contributions of the Filipinos to our country. I expressed that the protesters' frustrations were more about the immigration and manpower policies in place.
