Open letter to Minister Lam Pin Min

Lam Pin Min

Dear Minister Lam Pin Min,

Change to motorbike they say. Change to bicycle they say. Find new jobs they say. Get educated they say. The government and our fellow Singaporeans can say whatever they want but have they ever spare a thought on those who legitimately depend on PMDs for their livelihoods?

To be frank, not everyone can afford motorbikes. COE, ERP, Road Tax etc have made the cheapest motorcycle equivalent to a price tag of an average 4 wheelers in our neighbouring countries. Other than this, the capability to ride a motorcycle requires fine motor skills and coordination. It may be easy for some but others is considered a difficult task. You can’t expect those food delivery aunties and uncles to learn how to ride a motorcycle easily, let alone afford a motorbike.

Yes they can cycle. But not everyone can afford to cycle. Those with health issues such as bad knees and heart issues are not able to cycle for long distances. An average delivery takes around 3km in distance and cycling that kind of distance per order is gonna have a huge impact on their knees. The amount of deliveries they may make with a bicycle will also be halved or worst than what they used to make in a day with PMD. Are companies willing to increase delivery fees to compensate and make up for the lost income? Are you, as a consumer, willing to pay for an inflated delivery cost?

Change to other jobs? Workfare? WSQ? Get educated? Are you aware that Singapore has no minimum wage? A cleaner in Singapore can work 12 hours a day, 6 days a week for a mere $800. You think $800 is enough for survival? Doing food delivery with that amount of time can easily secure $2000 and above for them, allowing many to live adequately and comfortably in Singapore. As a part time foodpanda and grabfood deliveryman myself, I can easily make $120 to $180 for a 12 hour shift using PMD. In less than a week, I would have make more money than a cleaner. Isn’t it already obvious to you that many jobs in Singapore aren’t offering enough pay to sustain the livelihoods of many? Even I have a stable full time job with comfortable salary. But with this extra income, I do my part to contribute back to the economy. And of course, I’m a taxpayer too. I paid my huge tax on time without fail yearly. But why do I still feel second-rate in my own country?

Education? Look at the amount of foreign workers from questionable institutions that you have bought in to replace Singaporeans. The rising popularity of many Singaporeans doing food delivery should have been an alarm call to tell you that most Singaporeans are either underemployed, underpaid, or simply displaced by foreigners and are relying on alternative sources to supplement their incomes. Instead, you choose to ban PMD from footpaths and affect the livelihood of Singaporean deliveryman. As a local autonomous university undergraduate myself I can safely tell you that education is useless if there aren’t enough jobs to match our skills and qualifications. Nobody would want to be underemployed and see their jobs taken by foreigners with dubious qualifications.

You, the government of Singapore and fellow anti-PMD Singaporeans have not just caused great inconvenience but have also shattered the ricebowls of many. There are currently 100,000 registered PMD users, with many who were forced to change to UL2272 devices because of you. Some even bought their devices after saving up for months, some bought their devices under installment plans, all hoping to improve their lives doing food delivery. Your ban on footpaths have not just make their devices obsolete but also ruin their livelihoods.

Food delivery isn’t an easy job to even begin with. Singaporeans are doing food delivery solely because of the need to supplement their incomes or because they are out of viable employment options. Many of our food delivery man were also ex-convicts hoping to make an honest living. If given viable alternatives, many would have not taken up the job as a food deliveryman. Who in the right mind would want to work under the hot sun and rain? How many deliveryman have lost their lives or permanently handicapped themselves trying to earn a living using motorbike? PMD not just provide them the best of all worlds, but help provide a safe and economical transport for them.

You have singlehandedly ruin the lives of many Singaporeans in favour of public sentiments. Why can’t you just remove all weight, width and speed regulations and legalise the use of public roads for PMDs? Wouldn’t it solve all the issues we are currently facing? Additionally, I am sure many that go on roads will ride safely because they wouldn’t want to risk their lives next to 4 wheelers.

Yours truly,
Mohamad Nurfadly

    @ Mohamad Nurfadly

    CAR-LITE POLITICS OF SMART NATION is kicking the e-scooter and PMD onto the pedestrain walkway so the roadways is less congested for 4-wheel traffic smoother drive.

    Now with strong public reactions waiting to explode in the election boxes, PAPpypolitics now kicks the e-scooter/PMD riders into the proverbial roadside long kang (drainage).

    It is a rich man world in PAPpypolitics/PAPpynomics calculus,Ah Seng peasants are just expendable digits of election calculus.

    THE REAL SOLUTION MUST BE ALLOW E-SCOOTERS AND PMD on the road, and reduce the car population to make LEE-jiapore well and truly CAR-LITE which PAPpy news publishing have been boastfully advertising for so long!!

    BUT I BET THEY WON’T.

    IF THE RICH TURNS AGAINST PAPpy at the election booth, IT IS ALSO THE END OF PAPpypolitics.

    Dumbo Educated dafts will rationalize the problems, give a no-balls “balanced” sit-on-the fence, “no real opinion” analysis or defense, just like they study for the GP paper and then say,
    Bobian, it’s like that,
    then ask themselves stupid questions like what can oppositions do, or compare with some third world African nations that Sillyplace have progressed and better than others… never ending seemingly very intelligent excuses….

    then finally shut up and endure the pain or talk big on emigration or asking their spawns to emigrate as if the doors are wide open for them elsewhere.

    The truth is, other countries will take care of their own first, sinkies will have to solve their own problems and set things right in this country.

    @ Mohamad Nurfadly

    PAPpypolitics in LEE-jiapore will never publicly talk about “turbulence” and its relevance to TYPE 4 environment.

    https://ackoffcenter.blogs.com/ackoff_center_weblog/files/10.1177_001872676501800103.pdf

    The parallel illumination is this – PAPpypolitics bullsh*t of car-lite represents the “organisation” and the environment can be taken to mean voters, e-scooter and PMD riders and Ah Seng peasants voters etc)

    In type 4 environment, the “organisation” interacts with the “environment” – and there is mutual feedback loops between the two. E scooters/PMD riders are like football kicked onto the pedestrain (peasants-environment) pathways. The environment reacts negatively (we vote you out in the election) because prior action provokes “turbulence” ( rising number of accidents involving e-scooter/PMD riders and peasants on the pedestrain pathways) and that feedback to organisation (PAPpolitics worrying about election outcome).

    Over time the causal texture of the organisational environment and its interaction changes i.e. e-scooters and PMD riders got kicked into the longkangs because if they are allowed onto the roads, LEE-jiapore no longer car-lite for aristocrats who wants to cruise on far less density traffic drive (if not, there is also going to election kick into PAPpypolitics balls otherwise too)

    SO BOTTOMLINE IS THIS – PAPpynomics reliance on flooding this country with overpopulation is unsustainable – MORE HUNGER, MORE UNEMPLOYMENT, MORE ABUSE FROM THOSE…I BOUGHT THIS FXXKING PROPERTY FOR $1.5 MILLION CRAP FROM EX-FOREIGNERS….AND MORE MISERY FOR ALL SURVIVING ON PAPpypolitics/PAPpynomics FAILED ECONOMIC MISMANAGEMENT.

    IT IS TIME TO VOTE FOR CHANGE.

  • Ah Ha:

    If “HUGE IF” these PMD Delivery people (by Choice) hadn’t acted like “Village Idiots,” thinking they own the Country putting the fear of God in young and old alike, disregarding most of the laws of the country and just about all rules and laws for safety and common courtesy you might have a bit (small bit) of legitimacy. A short time ago a hospital released a report on injuries from PMD’s, listing the severe injuries, life threatening as well as those which will be with the people for life and need support from family or agencies as well as 6 (yes SIX) deaths attributed to PMD’s. As to your claim of making $180 dollars a day I and I’m sure many other would like to see proof of that. An “estimate,” would put you at delivering over $120 of food orders per hour, tell me how in that little green box you can do that. Recharge the bike, pay for the bike and still have $180! If this is so then you can get a motorbike and make the same, granted the upfront cost is higher but chances are the bike will last longer. On here the majority of people always schit on the Government and I leave that to the individual and what free speech is allowed under the rules but this decision to rid the country of what was becoming a complete menace to the well being of society causing undue injuries, death and hardship far out weigh your grip of you want to be a food delivery person. This was one really good decision by Government and 80% of the population agree with it, get over it!

    How on earth could you allow introduction of technologies to the Nation for a long period of time and withdrew without proper thoughts ?

Kow Tows and collect pay ?

    This PMD thingy is not even a problem to a typical Singaporean. Its PAP incapability has gotten this simple problem to a major dilemma. If they project such ill actions and delays to address Singaporean’s concerns on this matter, how on earth are they gonna solve the nation’s problems forging ahead ?

    Mohamad Nurfadly: “..legalise the use of public roads for PMDs? … I am sure many that go on roads will ride safely because they wouldn’t want to risk their lives next to 4 wheelers.”

    1) All motorised vehicles, except for the elderly and disabled, should not be ridden on the footpaths and void decks. Of course, they can disembark and push them at these locations.

    2) PMDs should be categorised between bicycle and motorcycle, meaning they cannot go onto the expressway but can travel on normal roads.

    3) Since they are on the roads, they have to go for highway code theory and practical tests.

    4) They should wear helmets like motorcyclists. They must have insurance for traffic accidents.

    5) The PMDs must have a registration plate and should have headlights, signal lights and brake lights.

    6) It will be better if food delivery companies can have their own fleet of registered PMDs for their riders.

    7) Whether they have to pay road taxes will be another issue for another day, but at least they save on fuel and parking fees.

    1. Pap will not help them, during these periods they will just say nice things to calm them down a bit. But the law will still stand and you die your own business.

    2. Is easy for the Gov to execute things by mouth but the ones that getting impacted and suffer will be the citizens.

    3. If now before they want to do anything and coming out best solutions. They should go on ground to survey and experience the actual things by themselves. They can get lta/mot staff to be pmd deliveryman for a week to experience everything and bringing out in the meeting by using the bottom to top approach. Please don’t always do things only after bad things happen and only benefitting to one group of people and abandoning the rest.

    4. Is fine that they don’t feed us and giving free money to us from all the revenues that they earn. Tourism, gambling, ft and etc. But by killing off people livelihood and letting them die is evil. For sure we will see insanity, crime and suicide rates shoot up skyrocket after the next ge if pap were to become the ruling party again.

    5. Those who are earning acceptable amount of hourly and per task jobs like this. Please save up some money aside to take courses when you all are free for backup, just in case such jobs also being eliminated you all still have backup skills to find other jobs.

    6. One day such jobs will die off by itself with delivery robots.

    7. You all can look down and don’t care about such jobs and people. One day you will never know when you old cannot find jobs will just end up doing such jobs. Especially now once you reach 40yo is consider old and could hard to find jobs already.

    8. By pushing people to the edge, one day sure they will fight back like hk.

    There is nothing ‘suddenly’ happening as much of the mess are cumulatively piled up by PAP since decades ago, and the countless deliberate inactions along the years till today to NOT (or couldn’t) fix it only worsen it. They are the sickness, the problem.

    Only one principle is ALWAYS true for for this current government: socialize the cost, privatize the profits, maintain power at all cost, stash funds away for the eventual collapse of the system, practice being hypocritical everyday, and hide in their ivory tower and enclaves.

    ALWAYS!

    It also doesn’t help that govt chooses to exploit many voters’ ignorance, weakness, human fallacies, laziness and trust to their advantage, rather than choosing to uplift them as a whole in every possible way for a stronger group of Singaporeans that could indeed be world class.

    It also doesn’t help (and is very much telling) that the incumbent (or incompetent) chooses to spend a majority of their time to siege the very small number of opposition members incessantly in many ways and yet failing hilariously, rather than tackle on the big problems of the world full time (that they probably could not handle, so they can only remove the watchdog from the otherside that demands accountability and excellent ROI for what they are paid for).

    When at the ballot box, remember what is it you are voting for.

    1) A resounding approval of what PAP stands for, all the pettiness and hush-hushness, goal post shifting, rules changing to elite, private club’s favor, etc etc

    OR

    2) a chance to partake in rebuilding the mess they created via the oppositions, and setting the ground rules right and proper.

    It should be noted that your vote may not matter at all after this election due to the whitewashing of the population with pro-PAP new citizens from you-know-where over the many years, so you might as well make it count for this one time as a last stand eh?

  • vote OPPO only:

    someone provided a listing of all the employees in JP Morgan Singapore.

    wah lan.

    so many ah nehs.

    where is that ahmad keng swee in JP Morgan Singapore? remember, keng swee is over 70% of pop and ahmad is the 2nd largest after keng swee.

    yet the ah neh is like 80%. what an inversion. you hire one ceca ah neh, sooner and no later the whole village is on the payroll.

    These million dollar ministers will never admit they have failed, fumbled. You delivery men / ladies can kpkb until the cows come home and they will not listen. Bendiing to your suggestions means loss of face for them. All you guysu should just band together and kick them out in the next GE. What they have done is very “Chek-ark” – increasing GST, taxes and the cost of everything and at the same time killing your livelihood!

    Why is that Khaw Bong Wan not being taken to task by the affected riders?

    Is it because as minister he has the arbiter of truth?
