PARTS OF LARGE TREE FELL ON PARKED VEHICLES AT MARSILING

The Marsiling-Yew Tee Town Council said they were alerted to the incident at 5:55 am and immediately sent their horticulture team to ascertain the damage. It was reiterated that no one was injured, as there was no one in any of the vehicles.

The Town Council reported that the tree is more than 30 years old, but the last inspection done this month had shown it was healthy.

UNI STUDENT DRIVES UBER TO PAY FOR SCHOOL FEES, LANDS IN MORE DEBT AFTER ACCIDENT

I began driving for uber as a partner in August last year in hopes of earning a side income to pay for my university fees. I'm not currently an uber partner anymore. As with most uber partners, I rented a car from a company called LCR. Unfortunately, I was involved in an accident along Upper Bukit Timah road on 11 July (see attached pictures for reference). It was involving my car and a Comfort taxi.

PRIVATE-HIRE CARS EMIT MUSTY SMELL, PLS DO SOMETHING TO IMPROVE AIR QUALITY!

I have been commuting regularly by Grab and Uber cars for the past 11/2 years and have found that some of these vehicles, especially the older rented ones, tend to emit a musty smell from the air-conditioners. When I brought up the issue with some of the drivers, I was informed that the filters in the air-conditioners have gone mouldy as a result of poor maintenance. Some of the drivers resorted to using air fresheners, but this does not get to the root of the problem.

As a safety precaution, I can only wind down the windows. The inhalation of mould particles is bad for health, regardless of whether the driver or passenger is asthmatic. In fact, it will be worse for an asthmatic person. Having also commuted by taxis for many years, I must say that taxi companies here do a good job in maintaining the overall condition of their fleets. It is time private-hire car companies strove to do better in terms of the overall cleanliness - particularly the air quality - of their cars.
