traffic police or LTA, whoever those jokers are just installed hazard lights on the signage that says “Speed Camera Ahead”.
on top of that, they have painted the road with huge ass dangerously slippery “90” on every lane!
now, i believe this “initiative” to install hazard light is spearheaded by the Traffic Police Commissioner Sam Tee.
this is the same dude who says on air “That’s not an offence. The offence happens when the vehicle is in motion.”, when asked “If you’re stuck at a traffic light, red light, cars are not moving, and I pick up my phone and I answer a WhatsApp message, is that an offence?” by Muttons on Class 95.
let’s just put aside the point that it’s dangerous to be distracted when you are in your vehicle in on the road with its engine and look at the bloody stupid hazard lights, and bloody dangerously slippery huge ass redundant floor paint.
this commissioner really believe in deterrence and that it is his responsibility to do everything to make sure lesser driver are caught speeding so that he can present a lowest speeding tickets issued commissioner. the truth is, the problem of speeding and dangerous driving while speeding is not solved or deterred. it’s just moved to some where else.
honestly, i can catch the camera flashing light at least 10 times every week. i ride pass 2 speed camera twice a day, so that’s 4×7=28 times a week. and 10 is like a good 35%, and hey, i am at the area for a mere 10 seconds each time. so i can really imagine the number of speeding tickets really issued. but putting hazard lights at these signage is not the right thing to do at all. if people are speeding, they are speeding and ignoring all signages, they deserved to be fine and have their points deducted, period!
this TP is messed up. totally messed up. well, i just wasted 10 minutes of my time writing about how messed up TP is, and hey, i am definitely writing into TP to find out why they installed the hazard lights. really. ridiculous. you don’t make the road safer by telling people you are checking their speed. spare the rod, spoilt the child. you make the road safer by letting those reckless know that there are consequences, serious consequences.
now, on the very same note since it’s GE. i wanted to discuss as little politics as i can online, cause the world is filled with way too many trolls.
ok, so you see, we know the opposition sucks! but hey, we don’t want the PAP to get too good a mandate to make sure they are constantly on their toes. so we either don’t vote for PAP, we vote for the opposition or we spoil our vote. then i realise, we need to be voting for PAP. because every single vote the opposition gets, no matter how lousy and shitty and full of crap they are, they get this impression that people ARE voting for them!!!
and so imagine this, if PAP gets 99% of the votes (never going to happen thou), only then the opposition who contested there will know that, hey, i am really rubbish, i need to do something about this. then and only then will we get quality opposition! because only then are these oppositions not cowardies crap, but real people who know that they are not opposition for the sake of doing so, but make sure that the life of their residents get better, and that singapore grow.
bottomline, i decided, although the PAP in my constituency sucks, or rather, the PAP dude taking care of my town in the big GRC sucks, PAP you got my vote. simply because the opposition is worse. way worse, and i want my 1 vote to send the message that, opposition, if you ever want my vote again, improve and come ready.
