E-SCOOTER RIDER HAVE DEATH WISH, SEEN RIDING IN KPE TUNNEL

This mobility and e-scooter thing is just going too far and out of hand already. What possessed a man on an e-scooter to ride through the KPE Tunnel? It was reported that a person was seen riding an electric scooter along the road shoulder of a Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway tunnel early last Friday morning, based by a footage from an in-car camera. The Police have said that they were aware of the incident, and urged anyone with information on the incident to make a police report on the case, so that appropriate actions can be taken. A 42-year-old taxi driver, who captured the incident on his in-car camera and declined to be named, said: "(It is) difficult to assess his speed as he was preparing to cut across the Upper Paya Lebar exit to continue his journey farther along the road shoulder. "I was going about 70 to 80kmh and he was slower than me."

"My brother recently had his GCC(Guards Conversion Course) Parade. Everything was great but things got a little bit delayed due to parents and relatives not moving and adhering to the announcer's instructions to return to their seats on time. All was well until I realised my bro had to submit an apology letter to the higher ups to apologise for their 'unacceptable behaviour' that caused the delay.
