There are plenty of luxury and sports cars around but no one is speeding, not even at midnight from what I've observed! This is because there are traffic cameras around (with sufficient signboard warning of the camera ahead, something like Malaysia's AES) and the drivers are educated to adhere to the law greatly.
If you are used to driving in Malaysia, one thing to be noted is drivers have to allow pedestrians to cross the road in Singapore first before cars can proceed. Even if you are at a traffic light junction where you are about the make a turn when the light is green, you'll still have to give way to the pedestrians (where their road crossing light is also green) to cross the road first before you proceed. If a car hit a pedestrian, it's the car's fault!
If it's your first time driving into Singapore, make sure you buy an Autopass at Singapore's custom. Autopass is used to pay for shopping car park and ERP (highway toll which only opeartes on certain time of a day, free on Sunday). Next would be a cashcard, which can be bought in 7-Eleven. Based on my experience, some shopping mall's car park require Autopass while some require Cashcard, which can be a little confusing for first timer like me. Parking coupon is also needed for daytime and overnight car park at public place, or else prepare to receive a fine.
