Rogue Van

Spotted this yellow van this afternoon.

Van was parked next to Block 44 Moh Guan Terrace.

To get to where it was parked, it must have reversed all the way from Block 35 Lim Liak Street, passing by Block 36 and Block 43 Moh Guan Terrace.

I'm sure this van has got many blind spots and thank goodness no one was walking around the foot path when the van was doing this illegal reversing.

This is after all a footpath and it is located next to a badminton court and a children’s playground.

Whatever excuses they can conjure up, I cannot accept it!

What if a child is run over just because some people wanted to save some sweat?

By the way, this is not the 1st incident I've witnessed.

There was a station wagon that had reversed in the same manner to Block 36 Moh Guan Terrace just to unload some bridal gowns......on two separate occasions!

And every day, there will be one or two motorcyclist who will used this footpath as shortcuts to get to Moh Guan Terrace from Lim Liak Street or vice versa.

Some privileged folks here even seemed to have a private motorcycle lots located on the ground floor of their block.

I don't mean to be nosey about such things but I dread the day someone will get hurt because of such inconsiderate behaviour.

My feathers are quite ruffled partly because my kids do play around the badminton court and the children playground here.

It would only be fair to expect that all kids play here would have a safe environment to play in without having to look out for traffic that was not supposed to be there.

Perhaps these inconsiderate pavement users are above the law because they are descendants of See Moh Guan and Low Kim Pong.

This could be the reason why they can use it like their grand daddy’s road.

I should have walked over to ask those 2 men to show me their birth certificates.
