Subaru WRX and the Singapore driver

I was saddened by the death of two 26 years old men in a Subaru WRX crash, one of whom was the driver who apparently lost control of the car. What exactly happened is unclear but what is clear is that the driver was  speeding.

Then there was another story of  young driver who was upset that he was overtaken by another car so he drove fast in an attempt to be ahead of that car. Result? He crashed and killed himself.

Sad. To die so young. The papers are full of stories of young drivers who drive recklessly and kill themselves, their friends and girlfriends.

But we must not forget those left behind to grieve them:

  1. their parents who have to bury them and grieve for them for the rest of their lives. It does not surprise me to read that many become depressed. Heard of the saying that children should bury their parents and not the other way round?
  2. their wives will be an early widows and their children fatherless. Think of the financial setback and all it means.

Young drivers, whether in a small or fast car, tend to show off. What’s there to show off? There are no prizes waiting for you. Drive like crazy and the traffic lights stop you. These people are immature and silly.

Drivers must be more responsible. Think of the consequences to your parents and your family, if married, if you are killed.

In my more than 30 years of driving, I’ve always put SAFETY FIRST.

“Better to arrive safely than be DEAD on time.”

OK, OK, it’s exciting to drive fast but do so responsibly. Contact the Johor circuit or Sepang international circuit. Public roads in Singapore are not for racing, my friend.

  1. Put up posters on prominent road junctions along the highways of Singapore to illustrate the evils of dangerous driving. Perhaps some lurid ones to shock these youngsters so they’d drive more safely.

    Do something before another one bites the dust!

  2. Good idea. How about mobile speed traps that can be moved from place to place. The current fixed ones are not really effective. Drivers slow down at the sight of them and when once past them, speed away…

  3. Show them this video clip….

    • Thanks for the clips. Hope we always remember what a lethal thing a vehicle can be. In a split second our lives can be changed forever or ended with tragic suddenness. Sad.
