      In case you missed the saga happening in Singapore last week, a video circulating on social media shows a Mitsubishi Lancer trying to run from chasing police officers on BMW R1250RT motorcycles. When the Lancer reversed along a one-way road, it collided with SSSgt Haidil knocking him over. Fortunately, the traffic police was not seriously injured and the driver of the car was apprehended eventually.

      Video of the incident here:

      248313275_3081569648766532_777939355407735836_n.mp4   We now have an update from our Minister on the incident and we are glad to know that the officer involved is not seriously injured and recovering well.
      The BMW R1250RT also does not look to be too badly damaged and should be back on the roads soon. 
      From Minister Assoc Prof Muhammad Faishal Ibrahim:
      Spoke to Senior Staff Sergeant (SSSgt) Haidil Bin Osman, the Traffic Police officer (TPO) who was hit by the reversing car in today’s saga that unfolded along Geylang East Ave 1, and which was widely reported on social media.  I am glad that SSSgt Haidil did not suffer any serious injuries, and that he is alright.  I spoke to him earlier today and wished him a speedy recovery.

      SSSgt Haidil was injured in the line of duty when he tried to stop the offender along Upper Paya Lebar Road earlier today for a spot check. The offender refused to stop, and this led to a pursuit, which ended with the offender reversing his vehicle into SSSgt Haidil while he was still on his motorbike, in an attempt to escape.  I am happy to learn that the offender has since been arrested.
      Every day, Traffic Police officers maintain law and order and enforce road traffic laws on the roads.  Their job is risky as danger lurks on every street as they are unable to read the intentions of a motorists until its too late.  They are vulnerable as their motorbikes provide little protection, and they have to depend very much on their training, experience and instincts to get out of trouble and harms way.

      This is not the first time our dedicated Traffic Police officers are injured during the course of their work.  They take the risk of their work in their stride, and continue to patrol our roads to keep our roads safe. Their professionalism and dedication to work is truly admirable. I am appreciative of what they do, and proud of their hard work in keeping Singapore’s roads safe.
      Let’s continue to do our part to make our roads safer for everyone.

      On the 21st of September 2021, J's Auto, via their official Facebook page, posted a statement that an employee has been arrested by the Singapore Police Force for act(s) of Criminal Breach of Trust. Simply put, in the eyes or the law, there was a case or case(s) of cheating, scamming, or misappropriation.

      CBT is governed by sections 405 to 409 of the Penal Code of Singapore, and is generally defined as the dishonest misuse of funds or property by someone who has been entrusted with dominion over that property. The person must have either:
      Dishonestly misappropriated or converted the property for his own use; Dishonestly used or disposed of that property in violation of any law or contract; or Intentionally allowed another person to commit the above. This act of CBT, was allegedly committed by one of the employees at J's Auto - by a certain Mr Loh Chee Peng, who otherwise go by the alias Eric, Dennis, or Chris. Beats us why one person would require so many aliases but i guess we will find out as the case progresses on.
      If found guilty of committing regular CBT, the punishment can include up to 7 years of imprisonment and/or a fine, which the court will decide the amount for. It is pertinent that we state and acknowledge in this article that investigations have not been concluded and this is only alleged at this point in time.
      J's Auto is one of the more popular workshops for modifying and accessorising your motorcycle located at Woodlands. The exact extend to the fallout from this situation is yet to be determined, but point to note is that J's does not only sell aftermarket accessories and general servicing, but also partake in the selling, financing, and buying of entire motorcycles. This might cause the quantum to be significantly larger than what it would otherwise be.

      Some motorcycles awaiting modifications at J's Auto
      If you've recently dealt with Mr Loh Chee Peng, having provided a deposit/payment to him for goods or services that have yet to been rendered, here's how you start the process for getting your money back. The owner of J's Auto - Pierre, has stated that he would try his best to make good those that have been cheated (Kudos to Pierre!!)
      Gather your deposit slips, receipts, screenshot of messages of your dealing with Mr Loh Chee Peng Contact Pierre (J's Auto) @ 92744999 detailing the situation and any evidence that you have currently Be patient and give J's Auto some time to sort out the situation and issue As this is now officially a police matter, we would imagine that there might be certain delays and compliance to jump through.
      For future reference, here's how to avoid falling victim to a scam and how to protect your hard earned money:
      Always insist on a receipt or invoice for deposit or monies paid Whenever possible, try to go for shops that have "ready stock" for the items you are looking for Make sure when making payment, it is made out to the actual company/shop instead of a 3rd party or individual Visit the shop to make sure that the manager or owner is aware of your business dealings, it is harder to "scam" when there are multiple people and staff involved Check the review of the person(s) or shop that you are patronising to ensure they have a good track record So there you go! If you are a victim of this situation at J's Auto, do reach out to Pierre at your earliest convenience so that he is able to get a grasp on the extend of the situation. Do give him some time and understanding however, and trust that all support and cooperation will be given to the police to solve this case.
      If you are victim and require assistance, please do state in the comments section below and/or reach out to us via the Contact Us form so that we can assist.

      Vibrations from a motorcycle could damage the image balancing software in an iPhone as Apple warns bikers not to fix the device to motorcycles. This new advisory came as there has been an increasing number of delivery riders on the roads from services such as Grab, FoodPanda, Deliveroo, Air Asia, and more! During this pandemic, as more people work from home, this has cause there to be an exponential rise in the demand for home delivery services and with that, delivery riders. Especially if you are displaced from your current job, joining one of the various platforms can be a good way to earn a living.

      The low cost to entry, also means that with just a simple mode of transport (such as a motorcycle) and a handphone which most people have anyway, you are able to get started almost right away! We've also seen in recent news report of how some delivery riders are making very decent income even after subtracting their cost for petrol, insurance, depreciation and the likes. However, a new hidden cost has been becoming more apparent and that is the cost of replacing your mobile phone when it breaks due to prolong use. We're not talking about the phone breaking due to old age or wear and tear, but more specifically, because of how phones are designed nowadays, there are thousands of moving parts within them and being attached via a handphone holder to your motorcycle, riding upwards of 100km everyday on the bumps and potholes of our roads, the minute parts and motors within will fail eventually.

      This is what has triggered Apple to issue an advisory warning to its owners just recently, to avoid prolong use while attached to a motorcycle. This does not just apply to Apple phones however, as we've seen and heard reports from many other delivery riders that phones from Xiaomi, Samsung, and other brands are also facing the same issue.
      So, if you are a delivery rider, and to minimise your cost of running your business, we've come up with 3 simple tips to help you save some money and ensure that your latest new shiny flagship device last for a long time, even while you spend hours tolling the roads doing your delivery services!
      1) Get a soft-material phone case for your phone
      There are 3 key points in which the vibrations from the roads are passed onto your mobile device. The first being the roads onto your motorcycle via the tyres. The second become from the motorcycle to the handphone holder, and finally, from the handphone holder to the handphone.

      We can try to minimise the impact of these vibrations by placing the phone in a soft-shell, TPU or rubber casing to absorb some of these vibrations to ensure that your phone is not subjected to every single bump nook and cranny from the roads! We would also suggest avoiding hard plastic or acrylic cases, and to try and stick with something that is softer to reduce the harshness that is transferred.
      Another plus point of these softer rubber cases are that they are usually cheaper to purchase as well! There you go! Saving you time AND money!
      2) Allowing more free play on your phone mount
      We all like a good solid mount as that is usually a sign that the product is well made, correct? Well yes and no. While in a car or other vehicles, having a solid mount would allow us to better visualise what is on the screen and gives us a better line of sight, allowing for no free play on the phone mount would actually cause more NVH (that's noise, vibration and harshness) to be transferred from the roads onto our phone.

      The difficult part here is actually finding a nice balance between allowing for some motion on the phone mount, and making sure that the mount is not swinging all over the place, rendering it useless as you are not able to see anything that is on the screen clearly! Using the very common X-Grip mount for example - What you could do would be to tighten the mount and clamp just to the point that it doesn't wiggle and shake about, but at the same time, not to over-tighten it to the point whereby there is no free play at all.
      This simple tip and trick might cause the mount to go loose over some time, but it definitely is a cheaper option as compared to replacing that brand spanking new iPhone 13 Pro Max that you have just bought for your birthday!
      3) Getting a beater phone for your delivery jobs
      Last but not least, if point 1 and 2 weren't your cup of tea, the next best (but no cheapest option) would be to buy a beater phone to use for your Deliveroo and FoodPanda jobs. With the advancement of technology, older phones have become so cheap to a point that you'd find a dime and dozen of them on classified platforms like Carousell going for $80 or less.

      Take this cost as part of running your own 'business' and if it breaks, you can simply replace it for not a lot of money! The only thing to take note of is that certain apps require certain updates to run so when buying a used Android or Apple phone, make sure that it is able to support the delivery platform that you are going to use!

      With that, we hope that these simple 'hacks' will help you save some money in the longer term and be sure to share this with your fellow delivery riders! Stay safe on the roads and don't stop hustling!
