in the context of being endangered by other motorists, because we are all such skilled drivers, how significant are accidents on country roads? sure, fatigue plays a part but more often than not, those involve running into a ditch or wildlife. damn those pesky deers/roos/hitchhikers! why can't they ...

Lot's of data here.... But it doesn't explain why nearly everyone I know here from the UK, Japan, US, Aussie, and some parts of Europe, who all have their fair share of misfit drivers, continue to marvel at the local proclivity for indecisive lane straddling and unannounced land changing, amusing b...

Well unfortunately that is often the case in London sorry I don't have any videos to show evidence of what happens. no need, i have seen it for myself though not in London. and i put it to all the naysayers that it is a similar situation in Singapore. overcrowding means that most people are forced ...

wrong. it means that in the UK, you have a 25% higher chance of dying in a car accident while in the US it is more than 3 times as great. now, granting that UK drivers are more considerate to emergency vehicles, what does it say about the higher death toll? poorly trained EMTs? larger number of hig...

In other news, Pfizer reports softening sales figures for Viagra as older men realise support pillars don't necessarily increase value, aesthetics or tenancy. There are no plans to move into property development.

Since the UK has a population of 60 million against Singapore's 4.5 million one can safely say we are no more endangered here than Singapore, the same being true of the US. As for bigfilsing's quote about drivers who cannot drive they exist anywhere and are on the road everyday. However, I read not...

Should somebody take a disliking to something I have said or feel it is erroneous in some way they are perfectly free to PM me and I will happily change words. At least one well known poster here does that and has done more than once. As for the name calling, that was unprovoked, I did intend to le...

Re: I hate expats

My comments derived from experiences which I gained as a law enforcer previously. There would be so many expats that would approach us with the most ridiculous complains , Ah, you've met Ozchick then? Sorry don't know who is that, don't bother about the thread. I foolishly ended up making some unwa...

One thing that is overlooked here is that if I sign up for an email then I have freely given permission to have material sent to me. However, under any other circumstance, my email address has had to be harvested and sold to UK Designer... and perhaps they have asked for a premium because I am some...
