A time-wasting and selfish Suzuki Swift driver and passenger duo sends a cam car driver on full tilt

The following incident is quite a handful, featuring an inconsiderate Suzuki swift driver, the Suzuki's 'guai-lan' passenger and a very angry cam car driver. Watch the it here: What Happened? The incident occurred at an open-air carpark. For some reason, the female Suzuki Swift driver decided to drive out of the parking lot to the middle of the road for her passenger (likely her son) to load groceries into the car.  Just then, the cam car driver that was parked oppo

Cam car driver claims the role of the victim after cutting recklessly into a Subaru WRX’s lane and receiving 7 brake checks in response

TL;DR – A cam car driver took to social media to shame a Subaru WRX for playing a brake check game with it. The driver even noted down the number (7 times) of brake checks performed by the WRX. Plot twist, the cam car driver isn’t so innocent either.   The Facebook Post on SGRV Upon watching the video and reading the caption, one cannot help but think negatively of the Subaru WRX. Then you watch the video again, and you realise there’s more to it than what you see at fac

An accident between a Honda Civic, BMW 520i and a Toyota Corolla makes all three cars perfectly aligned with one another

This has to be one of the most unique, one-of-a-kind accident you would have ever seen before. The aftermath of the accident might even be meme-worthy. Watch it here: What Happened? The accident occurred at around 7am, at Hougang Avenue 1.  As the morning traffic started forming at a red light, a BMW 520i driver decided to perform an abrupt lane change from lane 1 (go straight/turn right lane) to lane 2 (go straight-only lane).

SMRT taxi hits the brakes on lane 1 of an expressway just before an ERP gantry and causes a chain collision

TL:DR – SMRT taxi abruptly stops on lane 1 of an expressway for reasons unknown and causes a massive chain collision in its wake before driving off, oblivious to the destruction it caused behind. There are idiot drivers everywhere Our latest example drives a SMRT taxi. Watch the video below to find out why.

Singaporean Volkswagen GTI driver enters a roundabout at full speed, hits a MPV and scoots off in Johor Bahru

After 2 long years, we can finally drive into Johor Bahru to do the things we love - pumping cheap petrol, eating delicious food and going for massages. However, not all of us deserve this privilege. Especially for reckless hooligans such as this driver: What Happened?

GetGo Mazda 3 driver e-brakes to avoid t-boning a taxi, only to let go of the brakes and hits the same taxi 🤦🏻‍♂️

Car sharing drivers have developed quite a bad reputation for their atrocious driving over the years.  If you're wondering how bad they are right now, look no further. Here's a video that will make you facepalm yourself: What Happened? After failing to come to a complete stop at a stop-line, a GetGo Mazda 3 abruptly performed an e-brake to avoid t-boning a taxi.  For some reason (most likely to give the Mazda 3 driver a death stare), the taxi stopped just in fr

A Strides MG 5 Electric accelerates from a slip road and rear ends a Toyota Wish while trying to squeeze its way through traffic

Selfless Toyota Wish driver swerves his car and hits a tree after colliding with a motorcyclist

As usual, there was heavy traffic along Woodlands Avenue 12 towards Gambas since it was the peak hour. Just then, a motorcyclist gradually filtered from

Childish Mercedes A180 driver swerves left and right to block a Toyota Corolla after abruptly cutting into its lane

As a result, an oncoming Toyota Corolla in the adjacent lane had to brake hard and give way to the Mercedes driver.

We need to shine the spotlight on a Singaporean driver who puts all other Singaporean drivers to shame. Let’s look at the minute-ish video: Mazda 5 driver, why are you so entitled? There are two incidents here. 1. Driver parking wherever he pleases It’s a single-lane road in each direction.

Drive continental = got money? Think again. Cheapo Volkswagen Golf driver lifts carpark gantry arm to evade parking fees

Was this incident filmed in a bad context?  Or was the Volkswagen driver attempting to evade parking fees? Watch the following video here: What Happened? When approaching the carpark gantry to exit, the Volkswagen Golf driver stopped right before the gantry arm and alighted from his car.

A man randomly spits his drink onto someone else's car while waiting for the lift at a MSCP

Man caught trying to break into a Singapore-registered Hyundai Avante in Johor Bahru or is there another story?

With border restrictions lifted on the 1st of April 2022, Singaporeans can finally travel to Malaysia whenever they want. That means driving in for 'Lok Lok', getting a massage or filling your tank with subsidised petrol is now possible once again! However, security and law enforcement across the border tends to sway on the lax side of things as seen in this alarming video of a Singapore-registered car being "broken into". Or is there another story? Don't be so quick to judge

Spot an illegal PMD on the road? Shout and honk at them. They might lose balance and fall like these clowns

Every time I see a PMD on the road, a Young Punk (YP) is usually the one behind it.  Worse still, an underaged YP who couldn't care less about their safety. Watch how a motorcyclist teaches a couple of YP PMD riders a lesson they will never forget: What Happen? The incident occurred at Punggol Field, involving a motorcyclist and two illegal PMD riders.
