Lawyer suggests that most Sinkees r dotards/baffoons who cannot handle PMD safely on

Lawyer suggests that most Sinkees r dotards/baffoons who cannot handle PMD safely on roads/ pavements.

I think that this suggests that the ENTIRE NS and EDUCATION SYSTEM IS A TOTAL FAILURE ...by their conduct, these Singaporeans seemed unschooled and even if they had completed NS, are certainly unfit to handle guns (arguably more complex and lethal than a bicycle)... if pedestrians (people with certificates from degree mills) cannot be considerate and allow faster moving users to overtake on the right and PMD users cannot handle simple mobility devices and overtake pedestrians without "making physical contact*" in the process.

Seems like the invention of PMDs, first bicycles and then e-scooters has revealed to the world how really stupid, individualistic, self-serving and anti-social Singaporeans really are.

What was primarily invented and introduced as a modern, healthy and environmentally-friendly form of personal mobility tool has now morphed into a turf battle and a source of social conflict in a barbaric, uncivilized 3rd world island state.

Public transport users are jealous of PMD users who travel FOC whilst motor vehicle owners are upset at having to keep left pn shared paths when they have always travelled on the right lane (or in any lane) when chauffeured or behind the wheel of their big expensive cars. Maids and housewives protest that they no longer have right to walk zigzag and sideways according to their favoured sun shaded patches of pavement which shift from west to east according to the hour of day.

At this rate, Singapore is set to regress back to the state of being a pig farm/ fishing village or worse, a pirate infested island once more.

*: "making physical contact" is the euphemism for 'collision' that LTA used when 2 SMRT trains collided at Joo Koon MRT station resulting in 27passengers being sent with injuries to hospital.

Sentencing deferred for teen who caused grievous hurt to woman
Shaffiq Idris Alkhatib
A district judge said yesterday that a short detention order would be a suitable sentence for an electric scooter rider who hit a pedestrian, causing her severe brain injuries.

However, District Judge Eddy Tham deferred the sentencing of 18-year-old Nicholas Ting Nai Jie to July 17 after he called for a report to assess the teenager's suitability for a community service order.

If given a short detention order, the polytechnic student will have to serve a brief stint of up to two weeks behind bars but will not have a criminal record after he is released.


Offenders given a community service order have to perform supervised community service for a given period of time.

The teenager pleaded guilty on Wednesday to causing grievous hurt to housewife Ang Liu Kiow while riding his e-scooter in a negligent manner on a footpath in Pasir Ris Drive 1 on Sept 17, 2016.

The 55-year-old mother of three was left in a coma for a month.

Her husband told The Straits Times in a subsequent interview that his wife could no longer remember the past or express herself properly.

On the day of the incident, Ting had his girlfriend with him when they made their way to Pasir Ris East Community Club - ignoring the warning in the e-scooter's instruction manual against riding with a pillion rider.

Ting had not been keeping a proper lookout and was travelling at about 15kmh, failing to slow down or sound his horn even though pedestrians were in the vicinity, the court heard.

When Madam Ang stepped onto the footpath in front of a bus stop, Ting applied the brakes but it was too late.

The e-scooter knocked into the housewife and she hit her head on the ground.

An ambulance took her to Changi General Hospital, where she was found to be bleeding in her brain.

Ting's lawyer, Mr Peter Keith Fernando, told the court yesterday that his client is remorseful and hopes Madam Ang's condition will improve.

Mr Fernando added: "Our Government should take a serious view of the dangers caused by irresponsible PMD (personal mobility device) users and the injuries that may result, as this case amply demonstrates.

"As a longstanding member of our criminal justice system, I respectfully recommend to our Government a total ban on the use of PMDs on our roads and pavements."

PAP gahmen will not do that because court has institutionalised DOUBLE STANDARDS for death caused by motor vehicle driver (as opposed to other causes like gang fighting, robbery, assault using weapons). Current mkt rate punishment for causing death by almost deliberately ramming down pedestrians (using car as weapon) is a very lenient 6weeks jail only (for ex-school principal).

A PMD is like 1% the weight of a motorcar or less, so even if judge wanted to be strict with the PMD user who caused fatality, his hands are tied because of his obvious leniency to the motorcar driver who almost deliberately rammed down a senior citizen pedestrian like a bowling pin.

Don't even speak of caning, it has never happened to motor vehicle drivers, no reason for it to happen to PMD users by logical extension either.
