We need fewer douchebag drivers [Torque website story: Time for a two-tier driving licence scheme].
You can give a man a Chery QQ and he can still crash it, but teach him responsible driving in a sports car and he can be better than a lot of so-called experienced drivers on the road.
Nowadays, I see traffic congestion because of idiotic driverswho cut into queues abruptly or not let others queue up, and thus cause a tailback. If everyone takes the time to plan his journey, no driver would be rushing to wherever.
Torque Your observation is spot on. Unfortunately, douchebag drivers tend to respond better to law enforcement and traffic finesthan education and training.
QUERY ABOUT Q60
Will the Infiniti Q60 be available in Singapore?
Torque Yes. The new Japanese coupe is expected to arrive in Singapore before the end of March this year, initially as a turbocharged 2-litre model.
DON’T PARK & RIDE, JUST DRIVE
You already own a car which costs the same as a house elsewhere in the world [Torque website story: End of the road for Park & Ride scheme].
It’s going to take more than $70 a month to encourage me to ditch my car in a carpark and ride a bus.
Torque Introduced in 1990, the Park & Ride scheme was abolished in December (2016) because of a low take-up rate and misuse by some motorists as a cheap form of parking.
I suggest that Torque includes a section that recommends good car workshops in Singapore. The section should provide tips on finding an honest workshop and protecting yourself as a workshop customer, plus advice on how you can verify whether the repaired/replaced car parts are correct/genuine/new.
Torque That’s an interesting idea. Flip to pg 76 for our first article in a new thematic series for 2017 called Torque Shop, which aims to help the average motorist in Singapore by fielding questions related to troubleshooting, maintenance and everyday motoring.
