STUDENT SEES NO WRONG IN THROWING RENTAL BIKE ON FLOOR, MORAL VALUES ERODED

He just threw the obike in view of some passerby and waited for the lift. Then we heard a guy talking to the boy to tell him that he should park his bike properly and not obstruct the lift lobby area, but the boy simply ignored him and went up when the lift came. Then a minute later, we saw him again at the 1st floor lobby and he just walked away.

Question is, is this a result of bad parenting or poor education of moral values in school? Or simply our younger generation being easily influenced by what they see online, and think there is no wrong in his actions?

OBIKE ALLOWS TAMPINES RESIDENTS ONE MONTH FREE RIDES ON THEIR BIKES

The oBike Service will be officially launched today, and the beneficiaries of this bike sharing scheme are the Tampines residents. oBike had announced a partnership with the Tampines Town Council, and with the launch of the service, Tampines residents will be eligible for a free one-month oBike service upon registration.

This will enable them to test out the service for a month first, without any fees to be paid, and see if this works for them. Once the trial period is over, the Tampines residents who wants to join in the scheme, can download the app on their smartphones and pay a deposit of $49 with a credit/debit card or via Paypal. Through the in-app map, users are able to locate oBikes, which are equipped with GPS technology.

CREDIT SYSTEM INTRODUCED BY OBIKE, DID NOT TAKE LONG FOR USERS TO DISPLAY BAD HABITS

The oBike has now introduced a points system to reward good users or punish bad ones. oBike is introducing a credit system in its app to encourage better behaviour among its users.

Points will be added for "positive behaviour" such as reporting broken bikes, as well as to encourage frequent use of the app. However, points will be docked for "negative behaviour" such as parking at non-designated bike parking areas and forgetting to lock a bike. The lower the points, the higher the cost of the ride. Users start with 100 points, and once they have zero points, they will no longer be able to use the service. Some offences, such as violating traffic rules, will instantly reduce the user's points to zero.
