      SINGAPORE: The 26-year-old CashCard, used for electronic road pricing (ERP) and car park charges, is being phased out as the Network for Electronic Transfers (NETS) introduces a new stored value card. 
      Introduced on Monday (Mar 23), the NETS Motoring card is compliant with the Contactless e-Purse Application (CEPAS) standard and “aims to meet the needs of motorists now and in the future”, said NETS. 

      The NETS Motoring card will “eventually replace” the CashCard for all car park and ERP charges, said a NETS spokesperson in response to queries.
      In line with this, the CashCard will only be available at petrol stations and the NETS Customer Service Centre at Central Plaza on Tiong Bahru Road from Apr 5. 
      Meanwhile the new NETS Motoring card - which costs S$10, inclusive of S$5 in stored value -  is now available at petrol stations, convenience stores as well as the NETS Customer Service Centre.  
      Vehicles with the first generation of in-vehicle units (IUs) - first rolled out in 1998 with the introduction of the ERP - can currently only use the CashCard.
      Those with the second-generation “dual-mode” IUs introduced in 2009 can use a variety of payment methods such as credit card, EZ-Link cards, and NETS FlashPay cards. 
      About 14.9 million CashCards and FlashPay cards have been issued to date, said NETS. 

      Some motorists have noted that gantries at certain car parks -  which have not adopted the full Electronic Parking System (EPS) - only recognise the older CashCard. A 10-page thread on local motoring website MyCarForum lists more than 15 car parks where the gantries are unable to detect the newer contactless cards in the IU. 
      The NETS Motoring card will provide “ultimate convenience being the only card in the market that motorists can use to pay at all car parks across Singapore”, NETS said. 
      “As with NETS’ CashCard, motorists will just need to insert the NETS Motoring Card into their dual-mode IU for auto-deduction of payments for ERP and car park charges at full Electronic Parking System (EPS) car parks,” said the electronic payment service provider on its website. 
      “For all non-full EPS car parks, motorists can use the NETS Motoring Card to make payments with a tap-and-hold motion at the exit readers.” 
      The new card will work with both the second-generation in-vehicle units (IUs) -  introduced in 2009 - as well as the upcoming on-board units (OBUs) which will be rolled out from the second half of this year, the spokesperson added. 
      The first OBUs will be installed free of charge for existing Singapore-registered vehicles from the second half of this year, with the installation exercise expected to take place over a period of 18 months.
      These will be used when Singapore switches to the satellite-based next-generation ERP system in mid-2023.
      While motorists using the first generation IUs can continue to use the NETS CashCards, they will not be able to do so once the new OBU is installed in their vehicles. 

      In September last year, the Land Transport Authority said the OBU is designed to be compatible with existing systems, including ERP charges and parking. 
      It added that motorists can continue to use their CEPAS cards such as NETS FlashPay and EZ-Link cards, or credit or debit cards to make payment.
      “In light of expected developments, the NETS Motoring Card will provide motorists a seamless payment solution to meet their motoring requirements in the foreseeable future,” it said.

      Hello everyone, I need advise with regards to insurance claim amount.
       
      I was involved in an accident on Yishun Avenue 9 opposite Esso petrol station six months ago. In short summary, I was at the right most lane at a T junction going straight. The traffic light turned green, i rode ahead and a car suddenly sped from behind and changed lane without checking his blind spot in the middle of the junction. The car hit my handle bar from the left causing me to lose control and fall. I suffered abrasions on my left palms, arm and leg. Thankfully it wasn't as serious as other accidents There were no dislocation of joints or any fractures.
       
      So, the driver took his own sweet time to move to the left side to come out from his car. The best part was, he came to me and HE DID NOT APOLOGIZE OR say 'SORRY' OR 'ARE YOU OK?'. I was pretty goddamn pissed. He came out with a bullshit story and said that i banged him causing damage to his bumpers and side mirror. Luckily there was a car with a camera behind to assist me in my claims and investigation. During the accident itself i took down his particulars and he took mine. Shortly after, he drove off. JUST. LIKE. THAT. So eventually, he wanted to settle privately and told me that a few a hundred should enuff to fix my bike and medical cost. Again, 'No sorry' and he's talking about cost and stuff. Shows how belittle he think of bikers yea?
       
      A Traffic accident report was lodged on the day itself. And recently, the car's third party insurance offered me a sum of $2,600. The take away is $2,100. I just want to ask you guys that if you were to be in my situation, do you feel that $2.6k is enough? Or should i be asking for more? I did not sign anything at the moment because im not sure. What do you guys think? Kindly share your experiences.

      Hi all,
       
      I've recently came across this scenario in which the bike shop which the bike was purchased from, does not allow the owner to change the sub-riders once after you confirm during the initial phase. The insuring company is Liberty Insurance, and the insurance was out-sourced to WTT Insurance.
       
      So when we called up Liberty Insurance first, and was told that changing of sub-riders are allowed, and referred us to WTT Insurance, which apparently, was the insurance company which the bike shop deals with.
      WTT Insurance states that we need to contact the bike shop for such changes.
       
      When owner called up the bike shop to enquire about the change of sub-riders, stating that the existing sub-rider had his license suspended, the shop stated that "you may remove the sub-rider, but you cannot add a new one". Does this kind of policy even exist?
       
      So we went through the contract, and there is this clause : -
       
      " The Hirer shall not add or change named rider(s) or substitute rider(s) at any point of time during the entire hire-purchase period. The Hirer agrees to full settle the outstanding loan plus early settlement fees and processing fees immediately if the Hirer adds or changes named rider(s) or substitute rider(s) at any point of time during the entire hire-purchase period."
       
       
      Question now is:
       
      1.
      Does a bike shop has the jurisdiction on empowering consumers which insurance to apply for, at the point of sales, or even upon renewal?
       
      2.
      What is an actual hire-purchase agreement? is there any rule and regulation for hire-purchase? Or the owner can, freely comes up with their own terms and conditions?
       
      3. What happens if a shops ties down with an insurance company, and as a result, monetary gain was benefitted, but non-disclose to consumers? Would this be a fair trade?
       
      I'd hope if there's anyone out there with some answers that can help me out here.
