INCOMPETENT SINGAPORE TRAFFIC POLICE IGNORES COMPLAINT?

When Mr Goh was slapped with the summon of 12 demerits points from the traffic police for the offence of beating the traffic light camera at the junction of lavender & Serangoon/Jalan Besar Road, he had initially approached me to make a request that I would become his scapegoat in this matter to which I had flatly rejected him. This can be credited to the fact that he had a history of 3 counts of traffic offences which had accumulated to a total demerit point of 28 prior to this. Should he accept the deserved punishment of 12 demerits points for flouting the vested traffic rules, he would have accumulated a total of 40 demerits points within a short span of 3 or so months.

Commuter woes at Jurong East MRT station

Jurong East MRT station is getting more congested. I reach the station around 7.57am on workdays and can no longer board the first or second train. Track upgrading has also slowed down the journey.I have resorted to taking the train to Chinese Garden MRT station, where I can board the eastbound train without the human traffic. Still, this takes more time than before. As there are two North-South tracks at Jurong East, two or more trainloads of passengers may be transferring to an eastbound train. I wonder how this problem is being tackled.

Mindset change needed to solve transport woes

This requires bold, innovative solutions and a focus on commuter convenience and experience, rather than on the profitability of the transport operators. For example, we could allow dedicated minibus services, operated by retirees during peak hours, to ferry residents from each public housing precinct to the MRT stations — similar to services provided by several condominiums. Second, we need to moderate the allocation of land for private housing around MRT stations and downtown. We should build dense public housing on these pieces of land instead.

A shared opinion among some political observers is that the PAP Government will call the next elections immediately after his funeral - which will no doubt occupy the headlines for weeks in order that the party can leverage on the expected flood of tributes and sympathy from both the local and international media. It will be the biggest advertising campaign for the PAP, which the party will gladly exploit in order to win another election.
