Whether it’s a cherished childhood dream or a lingering experience in the back of our minds, we all have that one thing we’ve always wanted to try but consistently shelved for a vague “some other time.”
Given Singapore’s status as a city-state, the luxury of parking by the roadside or in the countryside for an overnight stay is non-existent.
This presented a challenge for Sng in finding a suitable spot. While he initially settled on a car park in East Coast Park, it became less than ideal as dawn broke, with families setting up chairs and tents.
However, after a swift internet search, Sng discovered a more suitable car park near Waterway Point for his overnight stay.
Having owned both an Electric Vehicle (EV) and an Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicle, Sng quickly noted that such an experience would be nearly impossible in Singapore with an ICE vehicle unless one is comfortable enduring the night without air conditioning.
This is due to the Environmental Protection and Management (Vehicular Emissions) Regulations, which deem it an offence for a motor vehicle driver to leave the engine idling while stationary, except for traffic conditions.
