Convenience first, comfort second, safety last.

———-

Many parents not using car child restraints while travelling with children in cars: Survey

SINGAPORE - Whenever Ms Liu Wen Hsin heads out in a private hire vehicle or a taxi with her two-year-old son Spencer, she will always bring along a child car seat.

Despite the additional baggage during these trips, which happens about three times a week, the housewife said it is a worthy trade off.

Ms Liu, 30, said: "Many parents do so much for their kids, and none of these things are convenient, so why do we shortchange our kids in the safety aspect?"

But not all parents do the same, despite the law stating that motor vehicle passengers under 1.35m must be secured with an appropriate restraint such as booster seat or adjustable seat belt.

Survey results published on Monday (Feb 25) by four final-year students from the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) found that almost half of parents polled do not actively put their children in car restraints, even though most agreed that it was an important safety measure.

Out of 513 parents with children younger than 10 years old, about 78 per cent said they own car restraints, but only 55 per cent use them all the time.

Almost half of parents who have cars said their children felt uncomfortable in restraints, while non- car owners said it was inconvenient to carry the item around.

Undergraduate Gracia Ow, 23, one of the members of the NTU group, said: "We found the gap between ownership and usage of child restraints to be appalling and surprising, because it shows that parents are compromising on their children's safety over perceived barriers."

The survey was conducted between October and December last year.

The issue previously came into the spotlight in 2017.

A study published then by the KK Women's and Children's Hospital (KKH) found that majority of infants and toddlers injured in motor accidents were not secured in child seats .

Dr Chong Shu-Ling, the study's lead researcher and senior staff physician at KKH, told The Straits Times on Friday (March 1) that parents are now more aware that the use of child restraints is mandatory by law.

"However, actual compliance can be improved,"she said.

“At the children's emergency of KKH, we still see many young children brought in for injuries who were unrestrained and/or sitting in the front seat of the vehicle."

Private hire drivers said it is common for parents with young children to attempt to board their cars without a booster seat. Such cases occur as often as three times a day.

Ride hailing operators Grab and Gojek said drivers are advised to reject such requests. Grab also has a GrabFamily option with special seats for young children.

Chairman for the Government Parliamentary Committee for Transport Sitoh Yih Pin said the laws on seat belts and restraints are in place to protect children in case of accidents.

"We have and will continue our efforts to raise awareness of safety during travel and also the importance of always using the appropriate restraints for children in motor vehicles," he added.

KKH said that in another study last year, parents suggested that public education by a reliable source could be the most effective way to increase use of child car restraint.

Other ideas include reinforcing positive child behaviour and financial incentives.

Meanwhile, the students from NTU's Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information are promoting the use of appropriate child restraints for children aged up to 10 through a campaign titled The Safe Seat.

The campaign is supported by KKH and includes partners such as the Automobile Association of Singapore.

It features educational postings on social media platforms and events to engage parents.

One such event, The Safe Seat Day, is being held at the library@harbourfront at VivoCity on Sunday .

Ms Ow, the group spokesman, said: "We want our campaign to fill the gap in awareness and behaviour, and ultimately, we hope to save children's lives."

Riders first, drivers second.

—————
Grab users can soon cancel rides within 5 minutes for free under new policy

SINGAPORE - From March 11, Grab users can cancel their rides within 5 minutes of booking, without having to pay a cancellation fee.

According to an e-mail update by Grab on Sunday (March 3), changes to the cancellation policy will be introduced to account for the fact that there may be many reasons why users cancel a ride. For example, users might key in the wrong pick up point, or drivers could get stuck in traffic.

Currently, users can cancel up to two rides for free within a seven-day period, after which a charge of $5 will be imposed for each cancellation.

But as part of the new policy, users will instead be charged $4 for cancelling their rides after 5 minutes - or 3 minutes on GrabShare.

Also, upon arrival, drivers will wait for up to 5 minutes - or 3 minutes on GrabShare - after which they will be allowed to cancel their rides. Users will then be charged $4 for not showing up on time.

Grab said in its e-mail to users that all of these charges on users "will be passed on to drivers for their effort and time".

"All cancellation charges will be deducted via GrabPay, or added to (the user's) next ride if (he or she) paid by cash," the company added.

For each booking, users may be charged $4 for a late cancellation or $4 for not showing up on time, but not both at the same time.

Cancellation fees will also be waived if drivers arrive after the estimated time of arrival by more than 5 minutes. For example, if the user was allocated a driver who is 3 minutes away, but waited for more than 8 minutes.

The changes will apply to all Grab transport services except for GrabHitch, GrabShuttle and GrabShuttle Plus.

Grab expects this policy update to affect less than 1 per cent of bookings, as the majority of passengers do not change their minds after booking.

A Grab spokesman told The Straits Times: "The improved cancellation policy will allow passengers more flexibility while ensuring that we are fair to our driver-partners.

"We are constantly looking for ways to improve our platform, and this is one of the ways."

Grab never think about places that a driver can't even wait for 5 seconds.

Riders only want cheap, safe and fast.
Riders don’t care about drivers merry-go-round as long the riders themselves are not merrying round and round.

This is very very true. riders should be at the pick up point First, before making a booking and not still at home or on the way of walking out. You need a ride but where got your ride is just downstair always waiting for you... Maybe once a while you are lucky there is a driver just did a drop off near you. On average ride will arrive within 5 min. At the most 10 mins, not to mention peak hours sometimes more than that. If too long most driver Don want to come also la.... Driver always try their best to be punctual or be fastest to arrive. who Don want fast. Every seconds is money to us too. Waiting time average 5 or less to 10 min can die is it??
Knn man sometimes......

This the part i hate most.

Especially at condos... going round and round at the pickup point cos got other cars coming in to pickup point.

And at shopping malls such as ION, tampines mall etc where the security guard is so anal about even waiting a min!

Grab should just allow cancellation like uber without affecting incentives zzz

Go one big round still come back to the problem "money". When comes to money selfish cheapo arises.... Haiz that's how it is. Everywhere the same. But to be fair luckily there is also good and considerate riders around. These people sometimes small gestures really make my day bery happy to drivers like us hours on the road especially the luo han monk

And of course there also f tup drivers. We just have to give and take
