So the policeman probably misunderstood something and not favored anyhow the motocyclist. I was recently slightly injured in an accident (I wrote about this earlier in this thread) and the traffic police was not even interested what happenedEau2011 wrote:Have you seen how they drive on the streets, those motorcyclists? One week ago when I was driving the first time here, I almost hit one of them. They just changed the lane as they like, from the leftmost suddenly to the rightmost without giving any indication.x9200 wrote:I seriously doubt this - at best they were probably found co-responsible.Eau2011 wrote: My husband told me to be very careful with those motocyclists.

This is true with two small exceptions: not motocyclists but cyclists and not in Singapore but in Holland
From my experience and overall country socio-political landscape I bet it is just opposite.
The secretary and her husband had just an accident a week ago and the policeman came and fined them though it's obviously motocyclist's fault.
Yes, I've seen it and know what you mean but it definitely does not make them any more privileged in the traffic unless we are talking about the road to hell/heaven/whatever.
My husband said they have an IQ of a hen. I absolutely agree.
Your husband is probably right.
The secretary (a Singaporean) told him this story and gave him tips of driving in Singapore. Of cause she raised an objection and at the end she did not have to pay.
And if I were your husband I would rather rely on common sense unless he is willing to compromise on his principles
