Maybe a "safe driving app" like this will help some of the errant drivers in self improvement

The founder is my undergrad classmate from many years ago. There may be a way to set up a beta testing in Singapore if anyone knows how to go about it locally.

Would be great if they could be "installed" in all comfort taxis and the results automatically published daily like the 4-D & toto draws.

Holy! Amazing that some people get out of their cars and get closer to watch while Armageddon is unfolding.

Having been attached to some companies doing bit dangerous stuff, the right thing should have been to move out of visible distance.

The rule is, if you can see the danger/explosion/implosion/disaster, so can it see you - you will never have time to duck if something comes flying ..

Ah, well, Russia !!!!

That it caught fire so fast also makes me wonder what exactly the truck was carrying !!!
