Introduce COE for bicycles as cyclists displaying sense of entitlement

Introduce COE for bicycles as cyclists displaying sense of entitlement

This is to keep up with the entitlement mentality of Singaporeans.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who like walk on sidewalks and pavements but fear getting knocked down by bicycles, are applauding calls for Certificate of Entitlement to be applied to cyclists.

This after other ideas such as requiring cyclists to get licensed similar to car licenses have been mooted alongside having COE for bicycles.

One Singaporean, Hor Qia Long, said he supports this call for COE for bicycles: “It is really about keeping up with the times.”

“As cyclists increasingly feel entitled to ride on pavements and on the roads and behave like their grandfather owns everything, Certificates of Entitlement should be issued to go with this newfound entitlement.”

Tan Tua Lui, another local, said it takes a bit of social engineering to pull off the introduction of COE for bicycles: “One way to make COE more prestigious to cyclists is to introduce competitions like Subaru Challenge for bicycles.”

“This will allow cyclists a chance to win a COE under difficult circumstances to show how coveted a COE is.”

“And when more people have it, more people will want it. It’s a very Singaporean thing to do.”

At press time, acknowledging how drivers, cyclists and pedestrians use the roads will make them family as they all act like it is their grandfathers’ road.

They feel entitled to use roads any way they please as they have a certificate to back them up.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believe in certification as it will make you more credible in your area of expertise, have collectively found the reason why drivers in Singapore behave like their grandfather owns all the roads.

This after numerous videos have surfaced online showing car drivers purposely cutting lanes and acting big on the roads.

One Singaporean, Jin Hao Lian, said car drivers in Singapore act arrogant because of the bidding for COE regulation: “COE stands for ‘Certificate Of Entitlement’. That’s why car drivers feel entitled to act like assholes as they have to bid for COE, and therefore, put money into feeling entitled.”

“Once they have a cert to back them up, they will feel the entitlement bestowed upon them and feel like they have to live up to the title everyday, swerving left and right and speeding up and braking incessantly.”

However, Singaporeans agree this is a short-term problem that can be easily solved.

One other local, Zhen Jian Dan, said: “The way to solve this problem is not to get rid of COEs.”

“The way to do it is to make all road users bid for COEs, so everyone can feel equally entitled.”

“Whether you are a pedestrian, cyclist or used cardboard trolley pusher, all must bid for COEs as long as you are going to set foot or wheels on the road.”

“This will solve the dispute as to who should feel more entitled since everyone will feel equally entitled and this is all their grandfathers’ roads, which then makes everyone family.”

 

 

 

 

 

 





S’pore must implement COE for building of swimming pools

S’pore must implement COE for building of swimming pools

Tags: ,


This is because water is precious.

swimming-pool-singapore

There seems to be more and more private swimming pools nowadays, with practically every condominium, executive condo and even private home here having one.

Such a scarce resource should not be used so extensively in such a manner here, especially with water levels falling amid the current dry spell (“Water levels low at Singapore’s main source”; March 23).

Private owners of swimming pools should be made to pay a much heavier levy for the water they use to fill their pools.

There could even be a bidding system — similar to the certificate of entitlement (COE) system — where home owners must bid for a COE to build a private pool.

Perhaps the number of public swimming pools here should also be reduced to save water.

S’pore telcos to issue COE for handphones next month

Handphone buyers to bid for certificates of entitlement that can cost up to $60,000 each.

Singapore telcos will be issuing COE for handphones by next month, it has been announced.

This comes hot on the heels of news that Singapore telcos will be charging for sending and receiving emails in a bid to ensure their business viability of making millions upon millions of dollars to increase shareholders’ value.

Handphone COE will be categorised according to processor speed.

One handphone industry insider, Tia Dian Wei, said: “The purpose of COE is to reduce the demand for handphones as they are taking up too much 4G. $60,000 is affordable by Singapore standards as HDB flats already costs $700,000.”

“COE for handphones will also help lower cost for telcos as lesser money will be invested into improving existing infrastructure.”

“With lesser handsphones in the market, Singaporeans will spend more time talking face-to-face, and this will improve social cohesiveness.”

They just are.

2-in-10-singaporeans
Two in 10 Singaporeans are certified douchebags, a Land Transport Authority survey found.

This after 8 in 10 Singaporeans surveyed said they want certificates of entitlement (COE) to be recategorised because is is just too bloody expensive and unfair.

However, 2 in 10 Singaporeans did not have any objections to how COE is categorised and sold at the moment for exorbitant sums at all.

This means this group of individuals are rich douchebags who can afford anything.

Qiong Kwang Dan, a Singaporean man, said: “Steady lor, win already lor.”

A total of 3,700 respondents were surveyed by LTA. This makes the survey quite accurate in sampling Singaporeans as a whole.

So if you look around you, you can spot at least two douchebags in your vicinity.
