What are you thinking when you give these sort of replies honestly?

Obviously the damn "sensors" don't always work (I've seen doors close on arms, bags, clothes, etc, etc and still move to the next station). Why the need to blame technology when we ourselves do not have the common sense needed to look after ourselves? And your last sentence contradicts your first so :-({|=
sorry for the contradiction :oops: , it should be corrected to :
The door sensor is not acting as what escalator door doing

and also the correction to the carelessness:
First i think should be the responsible of the driver, after the comments from sundaymorningstaple, i agree the carelessness could be possible caused by the mother as well

who would actually understand this is as dangerous as running through red lights?

to most of the people, personal convienence is the top priority!
Well, you did and I did, I would guess many others also did, how many ingore the obvious when in a similar situation is another story. :mrgreen:

Sorry James you seem to have an acutely misplaced sense of responsibility.

safety first

Post by gayamundoiel » Mon, 14 Nov 2005 11:51 am

i think there is a lack of awareness of safety in general - what should and should not be done, on the mrt platform and elsewhere.

of course, the typical singaporean responmse is to wait for the authorities to put up safety barriers instead of applying a bit of common sense.

speaking of being considerate, did anyone read the letter from an undergrad in the straits times forum about having the right not to give up his seat because he was as tired as the next person.

seriously, there is something wrong with society if even the educated ones think like that.

then again, educated does not equal cultured. from people who are proud of kiasuism as a national trait, i don't expect too much.

Sheesh....

Except for the right recommendations and vision of La Reinne and except for Stef's comparison with that weird scene caught on camera in Seoul, I find this all a lot of whinging about nothing. This is a big city, lots of things happening when moving around, all kinds of situations to anticipate, so be it. Be careful?

If you all know it that well and feel so superior to those you describe as being inconsiderate or not careful, then at least go to them, talk to them and tell them in a constructive way what to better do in the next situation, instead of being 'mr and mrs know it all' on the forum. :???:

this is not a matter about whinge, or being mr & mrs know it all,
as you say, lots of things happening when moving around in a big city, so be careful is the only way to secure ourself, what's wrong to open a discussion on some topics that we might overlook or neglected?
