disgusting behaviour on Orchard Rd christmas eve

Postby rob w » Wed, 27 Dec 2006 2:33 pm

Did anyone see the bunch of Hooligans rollerblading at a furious pace through the crowds on Christmas eve along the sidewalks of Orchard road.
I was disgusted at there selfish attitude as they barged passed pushing people out of their way old and young alike.
These were not young kids but I guess in their late twenties early thirties and Singaporeans judging by their accents as they shouted encouragement to each other to go faster through the crowds.
Did anyone else see this, i wish they had come from the other direction giving me some notice as I would have had their legs from under them!.

Trip em next time mate.

I hate Orchard Road and Suntec City around Christams and Chinese New Year lah. The crowds are out of control and getting transportation is hard but getting some that moves without the sardine effect is even harder.

No drink these were sober, it seemed like an organised team event almost.
They from what i saw had the same / similar helmets on some with numbers.
They were all wearing knee and elbow pads.
It was just like roller ball (the old movie) as they pushed people out of the way.
Not a festive bit of fun!

That was a good flick! I think the rules in 'roller ball' should be fair to use on this type of behaviour here as well. :cool:

It was disgusting and i think Orchard road is not a place for rollerblading! They should be arrested because endanger other road users! :x
