Feedback on Transport Regulations

I would like to provide an important feedback as I was faced with a child emergency and the GRAB driver refused to ferry us to the A&E, claiming that transport regulations forbade her to do so.

On 24 July, my infant ingested some egg white which caused an adverse allergic reaction which did not even subside an hour after injection. He previously did not display any such symptoms when consuming egg yoke.

As my husband was working at that time and there was no one I could turn to, I immediately booked “Just GRAB” and when the driver arrived, she took a glance and exclaimed that she cannot send us to the hospital as MOT regulations forbid it and just drove off after seeing the state my infant was in. She subsequently canceled my booking on her way off.

Fortunately, the second driver accepted me after witnessing my cries for help.

I hope that the government will note of exception life threatening emergencies which requires flexibility. We do not wish to become a nanny, Orwellian State and furthermore, do not require “minions” who are detached from ground realities to fill key posts!

The same is also occurring in my current case of Unfair Dismissal and after MP Daryl David wrote in on my behalf, MOM just thrust it to “TADM” where you will have to pay their fees, only for them to convey that there’s nothing much they can do to compel companies to comply with MOM laws. I note that “TADM” is helmed by former top ranking managements of the various companies and we are all cognizant whose side these people will be on!

    Don’t blame the driver lah, I think you can rightly blame the government.

  • trust pap die:

    lay hoon, after your child gets well, start to tell everyone to vote OPPO.

    perhaps you have been voting pap all your life. but now you know how bad things are in S$ faced pap Singapore. pap sets laws that only S$ can solve. if you are of S$, then, you would have called ambulance instead of grab or ambulance after grab and not grab after grab.

    are we heartless?

    YES. since GE2015 we declared we are not lifting a single finger. whether relatives or strangers. of course, we also do not expect the same from relatives and strangers. after all, we are suffering so badly under pap suffer some more means nothing anymore.

  • Talk No Use, Take Action:

    Feedback means what, do you know?

    It means you feed them but they back-out when you have problems. Don’t mistake the work back for back-up, back you up. No way.

    The only way they may be willing to acede to your request is .$$$$. This is the only language the so-called “minions” understand. They understand by the $millions, not chicken feed $hundreds. That’s why they have been paying themselves by the $millions.

    One newbie minion can become an instant multi-millionaire within one year holding the lucrative out-of-this-world position. These are actually highly intelligent parasites. They will have no qualms to suck you dry.

    What Orwellian State? How many years have you lived in this Little RED Dot? Red stands for what? Have you heard of the phrase “The East is Red”? That means Communism. Singapore’s national flag is RED and WHITE. Red represents Brotherhood (Communist Tong Pau). White represents “All Men Are Equal”. However, not all are men. Some are women. Some are half-men and half-women. Therefore, “All Men Are Equal” means “Some” are more than “Equal”. They are what you have labeled as “minions”.

    Don’t you know that these “minions have been running the show for donkey years? Don’t you know that they address one another as “Comrades” during their private and internal meetings? Don’t you know that Singapore is actually a Communist State in disguise as Pa-lee-men-tary Demon-crazy? Check the similarities between Communist China and Singapore. People’s Republic of China vs People’s Action Party. Does that ring a bell?
    .
    Only one Political rules the country. The other small parties are just designed to pull wool over the eyes of Westerners. Elections held regularly alone does not mean it is a Democracy. Voting system can be rigged. Voting results can be fixed. Even USA’s presidential elections systems can be easily manipulated by Israel, Russia and other countries with good intelligence organisations and good cyber-intrusion capabilities.

    When were you born? Are you born only yesterday? If not, then it is time to wake up. Stop being so naive. Read more widely and actively about politics and politicians. These “minions” determine and control your money, life, death and happiness.

    The next time you cast your vote, think of the immense consequences your one single drop of water (vote) can affect the whole Ocean!

    The more they plan, the worse it gets.

    Educated scholars love to plan and micromanage, just like the way they plan their careers.
    They will not leave anything to chances, thinking that they could grasp the world fully and that the world operates to their planning.
    Beyond Sillypore, where they cannot rule with an iron fist, there will be continuous stream of failures for our sillyventures.

    @ I am a PMD user

    CAR LITE IS A SCAM to preserve the exclusive “ownership” (possession and use) of natural aristocrats – the rest is driven off to share the congested pathways.

    If it was ever really intended to be car-lite, then the road should be reduced to 1 lane shared by drivers of private vehicle and commercial transport including buses. The remainder of the road width be shared by motor cyclists, PMD, and cyclists and leaving the pedestrain pathways to walking pedestrain traffic.

    AFTER ALL CAR LITE MEANS REDUCED DENSITY AND CONGESTION OF 4-WHEELERS.
