MOTHER WHOSE AUTISTIC KID WENT MISSING “BLAMES” BUS DRIVER FOR GIVING HIM FREE RIDE

Last Friday, my 12-year-old son, who has autism, disappeared. I am so thankful to those who supported me in my search. I posted an appeal for help on Facebook, which was shared more than a thousand times. But how could he have taken a bus since he does not have a bus pass?

I hope that public transport operators will refrain from giving rides to children or adults who cannot pay and cannot explain why they cannot pay. Better still, they should alert the transport service's help station or contact the person's caregivers immediately.

It is so much more expensive to buy a car than to rely on public transport. It is plain stupid to own a car in Singapore. It is tiring to drive and a waste of time to get stuck in the jam during morning and evening peak hour. I hope sillyporeans who still treat cars as status symbols to wake up their idea, no many how rich you are, you still die one day and none of the riches can be brought along.
