SMRT SAFETY STANDARD NOT AS GOOD AS IT WAS 20 YEARS AGO!

An experienced former SMRT technician, Mr Low, has shared with us the safety protocols that SMRT technical teams used to observe before they go onto the tracks to perform repairs during the day. According to Mr Low, these safety procedures were put in place 20 years ago, and he was extremely disappointed to read about the relaxed safety standards applied during this recent tragedy. He added that if the proper safety checks had been followed, the accident would never have happened.

6 REASONS WHY GASOLINE-POWERED BICYCLES SHOULD BE LEGALISED IN S’PORE?

I had previously written an article on the difficult and thankless job of LTA officers in keeping the roads and pedestrian paths safe for different types of road users as well as on the safe and responsible riding of electric bicycles. I would like to appeal to LTA to legalise the use of gasoline-driven bicycles.

Unlike 15years ago, I don't feel safe anymore in Singapore. When I drive in Singapore, I am very apprehensive. There are so many road rage cases and angry drivers in SG.

‘GAS DELIVERY MAN’ ATTEMPTED TO BREAK INTO MY HOME THINKING IT WAS UNOCCUPIED

This man rang our house's door bell yesterday morning at 8:50. My Mom ignored him. He then proceeded to open the gate and attempt to open the door. When enquired to what he was trying to do, he responded saying that our maid wanted the gas number. I have no idea if he really is a worker of the gas company or using the company's name as an excuse. Do not open the door if you're alone in the house. If needed, just enquire from the window or behind the door.
