    • But if you are a season driver here, you should jolly well know the road well even without marking…

      once passenger from Indonesia told me when I accident go over a hump too fast and apologized to him…

      he said, “Handsome, do not worry, I do many travelling in SE asia, and I can truly said only travelling on Singapore road, I can sleep soundly, if you sleep while travelling in Indonesia, your head will bang the glass window…here and there.”

      So I replied “Ah..now I know why our road tax is damn high” and we both laughed

      FYI, Singapore have the most humps in the world…my hump my hump…my little lovely hump

    • Still very confused abt the CBD rules.

      Are we allowed we pick and alight pax along double yellow line in CBD? 

      there are taxi stand/ taxi stop/ taxi pickup and drop off point in CBD. So taxi stop and taxi pickup and drop off means we can alight pax and pick up pax without waiting?

      Are ERP operating hours in CBD from 7.30am to 7pm? If i get a booking in CBD, do i need to manually add the ERP costs or MDT will automatically add in?

    • during TVDL lesson you sleep is it, and during the test, you copy is it?? these are basic rules, if dunno, can ask the trainer mah, otherwise trainer jin eng leh, give him some job mah, ask..

      Only Sunday, you are a free to drive anyhow in CBD< for weekdays, only after 11pm, you can drive and pick anyhow, therefore, at all other times, try to drop and pick at taxi stand provided…and office lobbies,

      lobby you can ask pax to teach you, like republic plaza, MFBC tower 3, etc etc, for taxi stands, now you eng eng go read and study.

      If taxi driver dunno where are the taxis stand/stop, then I also dunno what to say, just like a cook without wok

      LTA has already made it very easy mah in the CBD.  All the bus lanes painted red - Full day bus lanes 7.30 am to 11pm except Sun and PHs.  How to stop?
