As anti-foreigner sentiment burns online against “the China man who killed a Singaporean cabby with his speeding Ferrari”, it’s almost scary to read the violence in the words used and the depth of anger directed against “the rich outsiders”.
But not all share the same sentiments.
Heartlanders we spoke to say Singaporeans can be just as reckless on the road.
Local entertainer Victor Khoo sums it up: “It seems that the only positive thing that has come out of the horrific Ferrari accident is noticing that over the last couple of days, when red lights turn green, drivers don’t just drive off but, wait a couple of seconds, look left and right before doing so. If this is the sign that drivers are now driving more defensively on the roads, then the sad deaths of the taxi driver and his passenger would not have been totally in vain.”
