The country is way way too over crowded with such MGs and PGs and Covid had not done it work well in culling them.
Guess using rogue taxi or otherwise to remove these old fxxkers is going to be even slower than what Covid could do.
PAP might need to come out with a faster way to cull them!😆😆😆😆

This flaw traffic signal of “vehicles turning right + pedestrians crossing opposite” still has not yet been rectified over so many years and after so many pedestrians killed and injured.
What is LTA doing?
Vehicles with unpaid road taxes and insurances or fake licence plates or tinted windows and very bright led headlights,, can still travel on the roads brazenly.
No wonder that iguana is arrested for corruption. Take so much money but never work…..lol.
Now the people is watching the new TM Chee Hong Tua of his performance.

Driver may have been moving too fast to be able to stop. As our city is overcrowded, drivers must slow down in housing estates.

Age 60 and they start spreading COVID Virus and targeting the old for purging. Ask you to save your CPF for them the elites Not for you the citizens. See the MOH statistics!
