Fire consumes Comfort taxi at Ang Mo Kio carpark

Now this can be a scary sight for those living close to the incident. A Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid taxi has apparently caught fire caught fire in an open air carpark at Block 201 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3 on 18 September. As reported by Stomp,  flames and smoke can be seen engulfing a black car (likely a Seat SUV) and nearly catching a Toyota Hiace van that narrowly managed to escape. The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) were alerted to the fire at 10.55pm and they managed to "extinguish the fire using one water jet and three compressed air foam backpacks," said an SCDF spokesman. The cause of fire is under investigation and no injuries have been reported.

A new undercover Traffic Police vehicle?

For those who have been receiving texts via your favourite messaging applications that a ComfortDelGro taxi fitted with several cameras is a Traffic Police vehicle, you guys have been smoked. The Singapore Police Force (SPF) have noticed that the following image has been circulating around and has clarified that it is not part of their fleet. On their Facebook page, SPF contacted ComfortDelGro and verified that the equipment is temporarily installed on this taxi for training purposes. Members of the public are advised to exercise discretion and not circulate unverified information indiscriminately.  Here are what some neitzens have to say on SPF's Facebook page...

Van hits pedestrian and sends his phone flying!

A mobile phone has been hurt as a result of this unfortunate accident between a van and a pedestrian along Sophia Road heading towards Wilkie Road on 11th of September. As we can see from this video posted onStomp and ROAD.sg, the driver of this Nissan van seemed to be distracted and was not paying attention to where he was heading, knocking a poor pedestrian hard from the back. Clearly, the van driver is at fault here... According to the police, the 40-year old pedestrian was conscious when conveyed to Raffles Hospital. He could be seen clutching his head as the video was about the end. We hope all is well for him. And his phone! 52576251_174470654273041_5621453545594435322_n.mp4

Should these people be charged for using these parking lots as well?

Now this is an interesting sight.

As we have mentioned before in previous blog posts, the COVD-19 pandemic has somewhat influenced many who are forced to stay home to start working out as an excuse to head out. Hence, when we went into Phrase 2, there was a noticeable increase in traffic at our parks as many still continued to enjoy exercising, leading to some to come up with new ideas to move away from the overcrowding in parks. Check out this clip which has been shared by SG Road Vigilante, whereby the camera car chanced upon this public outdoor carpark at Fort Canning on the 9th of September which has been 'converted' into an outdoor gym. With the carpark almost full, we bet the sight of those using the carpark as a workout area annoyed the camera car driver. What do you guys reckon? Cool or not cool? Let us know!

Have you ever been so mad you gave a camera the middle finger?

In our fast-paced and hectic society, it is easy to get triggered when unexpected things happen to you as we can see from this video that has been posted on SG Road Vigilante. In this video that was shot in Yishun a few days back, we can see a van which is the camera vehicle, coming to the rear of a Volkswagen Scirocco. While waiting for the gantry to be lifted, the car rolled back as one pair of its wheels were on a hump. The van driver gave the car a tap of its horn, triggering the Scirocco driver to come down and confront the van driver. For those who have no experience with dual-clutch gearboxes, some, if not most, have the tendency to roll back if the car is on a slope as the car behaves very much like a manual car in start-stop situations. Hence, the Scirocco driver wasn't trying to reverse on purpose.  Was the horn necessary? Was it necessary to follow so close to the Scirocco seeing that he had trouble at the gantry? And was the van driver guilty of tailgating out of the carpark? Or was it simply just a case of an ill-mannered Volkswagen driver having a bad day? What do you guys reckon? Let us know in the comment box!

Rider makes a pretty sweet proposal in the middle of the MCE!

Spotted somewhere on the many pages of Facebook is a post where a motorcyclist managed to do a proposal with the help of his mates on the road. Done somewhere in our MCE tunnel, Hasan Sanny and his wife-to-be were supposed to be married on the 29th of Aug 2020. However due to the pandemic, the wedding had to be postponed. Not wanting to let that defeat him, the motorcyclist got his friends who then rode on 3 different bikes and wore t-shirts with the words "Marry Me ?" to carry out the proposal. Did he managed to get his girl of his dream? Watch the video here and see for yourself!

Traffic dispute convinces many that cyclists are getting out of hand

Are cyclists getting out of hand these days?  We'd say so as more and more videos of cyclists ignoring traffic rules and getting angry with other road users have been surfacing. It doesn't help as COVID has encouraged more people to workout, with cycling fast becoming one of the more popular choices/excuses to get out of the house. According to SG Road Vigilante, this incident between 2 cyclists and the camera car happened on 30th August 2020 at 17:15 along east coast road. As the road is a single lane road, SGRV claims that the camera car wanted to overtake and horned at the cyclists that he/she is proceeding with an overtaking maneuver. Unfortunately, the cyclist wasn't happy and started some 'ah-beng taunting' actions. Do you think the cyclists in the videos are self-entitled? Or do you reckon the driver should have just queued up and drove slowly behind them? Let us know!

Malaysian police officer gives motorcyclist a good hard kick!

Remember the time when a video of an LTA enforcement officer that stopped an offending PMD rider by giving the rider a good kick, causing the offender to fall off his PMD? Now, something similar is going viral in Malaysia. According to The Star, the incident happened in Sibu, a town in Sarawak, Malaysia where two police officers were conducting a spot check at Jalan Temple around noon. A motorcyclist that was approaching the road block decided to turn around to avoid them but failed to do so when one of the officers acted quickly by giving the biker a martial art-style kick. In the report, Sibu OCPD Asst Comm Stanley Jonathan Ringgit explained that the offender works at the a hotel nearby and has several offences to his name. Other than not having a driving license and having a modified bike, its road tax has also expired and it was not covered under any insurance too.  46687388_923477234821643_832602979362855331_n.mp4

The Maxus G10 offers maximised mobility for everyone

Travelling with seven or more people? The Maxus G10 is one of the few MPVs that does the job of moving everyone comfortably.
Cars come in all shapes and sizes, to fit each and every owner's needs. For most families, a normal sedan does the job just fine. And if you come from a bigger family or have friends you want to ferry around, an MPV works well, too. While there are MPVs, one that seats seven or more comfortably is hard to find. Plus, if you find yourself picking up guests from the airport, it might just mean their luggages might not fit when all seven seats are up.
You'll need a bigger MPV. And when we mean big, we mean fitting seven people with ease. Travelling together safely and comfortably
In our current climate, it is best to have your own form of transport, like a car. But for big families to get around, it can be a struggle. When the extended family comes along, perhaps it is easier to split everyone amongst two cars. But what if another car isn't an option, or there isn't another driver? Well, if your parents are more than happy to take a taxi, and your in-laws are cool with taking the bus - that might be a solution. But that might mean that not everyone will arrive at the same timing. It isn't just for families, but big groups of people too. So, what's the best way around this? The simple solution is getting an MPV. But many MPVs or even seven-seat SUVs don't do the job that well. Many MPVs have a third row that is small and tight, and are best suited for short journeys. Many will know how hard it is to squeeze people in the back when child seats are in place, too. And if you have children that are all grown up, the last row of seats just won't cut it for them. To avoid the grumpy faces of those relegated to the rear seats or taking other modes of transport, there is one car that'll do the job best.
Step into the Maxus
Here's one of very few, true nine-seater MPVs on the market today. The Maxus G10 is big for a purpose – to fit nine people safely and comfortably. With three rows of seating to fit nine people, it means your extended family can travel with you, too. With four plush captain seats at the back, along with a long and wide bench in the last row, it allows for easy access and is engineered to be comfortable for long journeys.
There are enough amenities to challenge most living rooms, too. There's an entertainment screen, a full sunroof, USB charging ports are available in all three rows, and it even sports a full-size, three-pin power socket. And when it comes to hauling all the family's barang-barangs, just fold the rear seats, and the Maxus G10 swallows everything with ease. The seven-seater Maxus G10 offers over 2,500 litres of boot space even with all passengers seated comfortably.
Easy driving
If you're worried about it's size, well the Maxus G10 isn't a hard car to pilot. Thanks to its large windows and mirrors, it is an easy car to look out of and place on the road. Plus, with its 360-degree camera, parking is a smooth and seamless affair, too.
And the Maxus is quick, too. With its 2.0-litre turbocharged engine, it puts out a respectable 215bhp and 330Nm of torque. That means even when fully loaded, there are no issues getting the big Maxus up to speed. And on the topic of driving, the Maxus G10 is perhaps the only nine-seater on the market today that can be driven legally with a Class 3 licence.
The ultimate people mover
Moving big families has always been a challenge. Family time is important, so why should you compromise that because of the lack of space in your current ride? The full range of Maxus G10 MPVs include a nine-seater, a seven-seater, and also a wheelchair-friendly option, offering easier access for wheelchair users.
The Maxus G10 isn't just able to do the job – it does it very well. It is comfortable, with more than enough space and grace to keep everyone happy and moving without a hitch. When it comes to moving people, nothing comes close to the Maxus range of MPVs. To find out more, head over to Maxus Singapore's official website, here.

Can't get parking lots? Make your own then!

If you can't get parking lots near enough to where you stay, simply make your own! That's what these bike owners did and it didn't went down too well with residents staying at the same block. As reported by SG Road Vigilante, this set of photos were shot at Block 899A Woodlands Drive 50 recently and according to the post on Facebook, the relevant town council and authorities have been notified but nothing has been done to make the bike owners park their bikes at the correct parking lots. The owners reportedly also used the area to spray paint their wheels, leaving paint marks on the floor and frequently annoying the residents on the lower floors with their loud exhausts.  Two of them even bothered to create their own private parking space at the HDB void deck with masking tape. Cool stuff! Obviously, these bike owners are in the wrong, but credit must be given for the creativity and craft skill! Let us know what you feel in the comments!

Skodas on the frontline around the world

Known for their versatility and practicality, Skoda cars have proven to be the perfect vehicles to provide assistance to those in need. What makes a good vehicle to assist those in need? Is it space, performance, or its capabilities in various road conditions? Such a vehicle must be able to adapt to changing environments quickly and effectively. At the same time, it has to be quick - be it serving the needs for cyclists in a race, or responding to life-threatening situations in emergencies. Skoda vehicles are the perfect combination. Known for their high level of practicality and versatility, they offer the best when it comes to the needs and wants of emergency services around the world. It is no surprise then, that Skodas have been spotted serving in emergency departments, to notable racing events around the world such as the Dakar Rally, and the Tour de France cycling race.   A long history of service
Skodas aren't new to the game when it comes to offering emergency vehicles, with a history that spans over 110 years. Laurin & Klement is a nameplate we recognise for top-of-the-line Skodas today. Back then, it was an automobile manufacturer, making coach built cars that were designed for ambulance use. What they came up with in 1906 was the C1 military ambulance. It had the ability to carry four patients. It proved to be effective transporting wounded soldiers during the war. In the following years, the versatility and practicality of Skodas stood out. In the 1960s, Vehicles like the Skoda 1203 were not just used for ambulances, but as commercial vans too. The versatile ambulance
The good qualities that a Skoda offers work hand in hand with the operational needs emergency vehicles require. That point stays true today. It is no wonder that fast medical response teams around the world choose to use Skoda vehicles. Skoda's versatile SUV, the Kodiaq, fully represents this when used as an ambulance. Outfitted for medical use, it is decked out in equipment ranging from defibrillators, to even a backup electricity source. It even supports an air ambulance service in the U.K. The fast Kodiaq VRS covers ground in areas helicopters can't reach, transporting important medical personnel and equipment quickly and safely - with enough room to spare.
Hard police work
It isn't just about responding to medical emergencies. Police departments need vehicles that are dependable, with enough pace to respond to incidents, yet with space to deal with protective equipment such as bulletproof vests, shields and warning lamps. You can easily see why Skodas work just as well here. Usually, extensive modifications are required to fit communications equipment, for example. But in the case of the Kodiaq, it fits perfectly in the centre compartment. Thanks to the sturdy nature of Skoda vehicles, not many alterations are required either, despite the added weight of police equipment. Combined with excellent on-road performance and enough off-road abilities, it means police officers can attend to the toughest of situations quickly and effectively, every day. Going undercover
One of our favourite highlights of Skodas are that they're inconspicuous, yet practical. Skoda has made the perfect cars for unmarked police vehicles, too. Skoda vehicles have found use in highway patrol units in the U.K., with the RS245 taking centre stage. With 241bhp on tap along with an unassuming exterior, it is almost guaranteed that the RS will be a dependable vehicle for highway patrol officers, be it responding quickly to an incident, or when in pursuit. Skoda even has a bulletproof version of the Superb. Almost indistinguishable from your regular Superb, it is built from high-strength steel with bullet-resistant glass. Serving two wheelers today
Today, Skoda isn't just supporting emergency services with its versatile range of vehicles. Many sporting events require support vehicles. And perhaps one of the most physically demanding events are cycling tours, where Skoda vehicles are a common spot. We've seen how difficult it can get. During the Bike 'n' Blade charity cycling event last year, Skodas again proved their worth. Supporting over a 100 cyclists riding up Cameron Highlands, the Skodas used were able to carry medical supplies, bicycle spares and even refreshments for the cyclists, as they conquered over 1,400m in elevation changes. It is no surprise then, that Skoda has been the main partner of the Tour de France race for sixteen years in a row. Come this August, the Tour de France will be back, with over 150 riders covering over 3,000km. And you'll be sure to spot a Skoda, always there for those who ride.

Heavy rains expose deadly section of PIE

With the weather turning slightly wetter in the recent days, this part of the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE) is turning out to be quite deadly. Shared by the 'good samaritans' of SG Road Vigilante, someone has been recording from his/her apartment some of the accidents that happened at the Jalan Anak Bukit flyover towards the direction of Jurong. As we can all see, all the four incidents had the drivers losing control of the rear of their vehicles as they crest over the left hand turn. Some of drivers looked like they oversped but not every one was doing so. We guessed these drivers all lifted off the accelerator abruptly and/or had bad tyres at the rear while negotiating the turn, causing their vehicles to go into oversteer.  LTA has made this corner less treacherous than before in the recent years but it still does seem to catch quite a few drivers out. Other than having good tyres, our advice when approaching the corner is to maintain your speed and to obviously keep to the speed limit.   P.S. this corner does remind us of the infamous corner, Eau Rouge of the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium. Watch the clip and see how cars go off the corner as they lose the rear of their cars in that deadly turn.

BMW delivers the power of choice

With the addition of the fully electric iX3, the highly popular BMW X3 model range offers buyers a true power of choice. Since it was first launched in 2003, the BMW X3 has become an important model within the BMW lineup. The first generation BMW X3 was launched at a time where crossovers and SUVs were notably less commonplace than they are now. Sharing the same platform as the 3 Series, the X3 offered drivers a more compact alternative to the X5. Fast forward close to two decades,the X3 has become a quintessential sight on our roads.
Rugged appeal Part of the X3's appeal is its go-anywhere capabilities. In 2003, BMW introduced its xDrive all-wheel drive system in both the X3 and the X5. Beyond delivering superior traction and stability on tarmac, this also meant that the X3 could tackle all manner of off-road situations. This made it ideal for drivers who needed a car that could traverse any kind of terrain thrown at it. At the same time, it also ushered in the Sport Activity Vehicle (SAV) era for BMW. While the robust and sizeable X5 was the first SAV from BMW, the X3 definitely made the SAV a mainstay for the brand. Due to its nimble and compact nature, the brand has seen many drivers move from a 3 Series to an X3. And, with each subsequent iteration, the X3 continues to deliver even more daily comfort, practicality and luxury, turning it into a well-rounded car fit for the family. Power of choice Over the years, BMW continued to develop the X3 to deliver even more performance and capability to its customers. Now, customers have even more choices when it comes to the BMW X3. When the all electric iX3 launches some time next year, BMW X3 customers will have a slew of powertrain choices when it comes to the X3 - petrol, petrol-hybrid and electric. Steady going For the large number of drivers, the petrol engine is likely the most 'traditional' choice. It delivers a familiar driving experience, and is suitable regardless of city driving or long distances. This is the X3 variant you will most commonly see on our roads. This is no surprise - the X3 delivers plenty of utility and daily usability, all delivered in an entirely fuss-free manner.
City slick For drivers looking to balance eco-consciousness and peace-of-mind accessibility, BMW also offers a plug-in hybrid option with the X3. The PHEV delivers additional fuel efficiency compared to the petrol model. The x3 xDrive30e also delivers ample flexibility - the car can run on full electric mode for up to 50km, and up to a top speed of 135km/h. And, if you have access to a charging point, you can further increase your cost savings over time by recharging the car regularly. Green machine With the upcoming launch of the iX3, drivers will also have an option of a fully-electric BMW SUV. It delivers an additional choice for drivers who have either already made the switch to electrified vehicles, or are primed to make the switch. Of course, going for the iX3 is an even easier choice for individuals who have easy access to charging stations either at home or at their workplace. With the iX3, they now have the option of a family-friendly luxury SUV that also caters to their electromobility lifestyle. What does this mean for BMW? The X3 family delivers drivers the full gamut of choices. And, moving forward, we will likely see such wealth of choices even more readily available across the rest of the BMW lineup, as the brand continues to further electrify its model range. As electrification is the future for the industry, the availability of a fully electric model within the brand's core model lineup speaks to its intentions - to make EVs a mainstay of its product offering moving forward.

Silly cyclist crashes into stationary van

A van has been injured in this accident due to a cyclist's silly carelessness. Jokes aside, this is quite an unfortunate incident whereby a cyclist smashed into the back of a Toyota Hiace van which was stationary along one of Old Airport Road's traffic junction. The accident happened in the wee hours of the morning, with the cyclist apparently beating a red light at the previous junction as traffic was light. With the need to go as fast possible, he likely chose keep his gaze low on the road to be as aerodynamic as possible without realising that the van that he was about to crash into had actually stopped at the upcoming traffic junction.  Thankfully, the cyclist survived but he sure looked quite messed up. We hope he recovers well! P.S. SG Road Vigilante's video thumbnail might be slightly disturbing for some. Viewer discretion advised!

Honda Shuttle driver blocks everyone from moving at Katong

Now this is a good one for debating. Do you think the lady in the Honda Shuttle is wrong, or its just the taxi driver being difficult? As shown on SG Road Vigilante's page, a clip shot by a Premier taxi driver, shows a lady in her Honda Shuttle blocking the drop off/pickup point of Katong Shopping Center on 7th of Aug 2020. The reason she is blocking everyone is that she wanted to reverse into the parallel lot beside the taxi but in order for her to do so, all the cars, including the taxi behind, her has to reverse. Now that can be quite a hassle to everyone... So without seeing the first part of this incident, could it be that the taxi driver was being difficult from the start and could have just reversed for her to go into the lot? Or do you guys reckoned that the Honda driver was just a little bit too self-entitled?

Law-breaking cyclists get into chain collision!

We wonder if these group of cyclists are aware that the COVID-19 pandemic is still ongoing when they ride in such a large group.. Posted by the people from SG Road Vigilante on 7th of Aug 2020 is a video of a large group of cyclist riding together seriously before a crash causes a chain collision of bicycles. Some of us might find the accident funny while some would be shocked at how dangerous riding on the road could be. We just hope that everyone recovers well from their fall. Of course, such a post will put netizens into a commenting frenzy where everyone will be slamming the cyclists for road-hogging and riding in a group of more than five.  Do you feel that these large gatherings should be stopped? Or do you feel that more and more cyclists are taking advantage of our roads? Let us know...

Watch how egos got the better of both these cars (Maserati crashed!)

Not happy with being overtaken or high beamed at? Why not try jamming your brakes so that the car that offended you can crash into you?  That's what this Maserati Quattroporte driver did when the camera car behind beamed him. According SG Road Vigilante's post, the accident happened on the wee hours of 5th of Aug 2020 along Keppel Road. In the video, we can see the camera car trying to overtake both the Mercedes Vito and the Maserati but was blocked a couple of times. Both vehicles were apparently friends or colleagues from the same company and once the Maserati managed to overtake the camera car, the Maserati jammed his brakes suddenly, causing the camera car, which we reckon from that turbo flutter and gearshift, an Audi A4, to crash into it. The Maserati's occupants then came out, demanding the camera car driver to get out and "settle things". After some aggressive exchange of words, the Maserati just drove off as if nothing happened. Weird In our opinion, this is just one side of the story as we have no idea what the camera car driver did to anger the Maserati driver. Accidents like this usually takes two hands to clap. What do you guys reckon? Let us know!

Netizens dig out black Golf GTI driver's former antics

Remember the black Volkswagen mk5 Golf GTI that was spotted racing on CTE at night with an Mitsubishi Evo X before causing a van to crash and flip? Here's a recent cum compilation video of the GTI causing havoc on our roads. As you guys can see these are some pretty reckless driving. A big no-no when dashcams are everywhere. And yes how could we forget the ever-increasing number of Facebook pages that shame bad drivers. Naturally, the comments section on SG Road Vigilante's page has its supporters slamming the driver. On a less serious note, the GTI is a pretty good point and shoot car with its fast-acting DSG box and turbo engine eh?

Van lands in the bushes thanks to street racers

Nothing new here. This is just another case of street racers causing trouble to the general road users. Shared among group chats in Whatsapp is a series of videos that show a Volkswagen Golf GTI mk5 owner being bombarded with hokkien vulgarities. No, we won't be translating what those words mean in case you are wondering... After some digging, we found out that the GTI driver who was being shouted at, and a Mitsubishi Evo X were zipping left and right through traffic along CTE on 9 Jul 2020 before causing a Toyota Hiace to crash and flip sideways into the bushes at the left side of the highway. We could see that the GTI sustained some damage to its front left hence the driver stopped. We assumed the Evo X driver did not stop and continued on its way.   This is not the first time the GTI owner has been caught driving recklessly as you can see from the video above by ROADS.sg. Of course neitzens on facebook are bashing the reckless drivers as we can see from Thelocalsociety's FB page. What are your thoughts on such drivers? Let us know!

Van crashes into barrier with no apparent cause, motorists ponder what happened!

The last few days have been relatively peaceful for our roads until this particular accident that was post by SG Road Vigilante caught our attention. With the accident happening a couple of weeks ago (17 July), this is not the latest news but it is one of the most recent videos that surfaced online. What made us sit up and take notice is how the Toyota Hiace driver lost control of his van.  To zoom past the camera car on the left at that speed must have meant that the Hiace driver lost it way before the Steven Road exit on PIE towards Jurong. He then went across 3 lanes at approximately 80km/h before smashing into the center barriers and coming to a stop in the middle of the highway. What do you guys think happened? Let us know in the comment box below!

Bentley slams into the rear of a Honda City, leaving many to speculate on just what the Honda driver was doing!

Some people don't deserve to drive. Watch the video below and see whether you agree with our harsh comment or not. Posted by My Grandfather's Road, another traffic-shaming facebook page, is this video of a Honda City that almost came to a complete stop while on the first lane of the ECP.  It is unclear how long ago this accident happened as the in-car camera video dates the incident on the 27th of Dec 2019 but the post was published today, 22nd of July 2020. We have no idea why the Honda driver attempted to slow down. Could it be that he or she realised that there is an exit and wanted to turn off at the last minute?

Posted by the people of SG Road Vigilante are photos of some bikes parked along the pavement of Ang Mo Kio Ave 9, near the Yio Chu Kang Sport Complex. The photos, which showed quite a few bikes on the pavement, were taken on the 20th of July and captured the bikes all parked neatly on the side of the pavement.  Despite the many available parking lots in the carpark which the bikes were already in, the owners of the bikes were said to have parked it on the pavement instead as they wanted their bikes to be in the shade. A quick glance at the comments saw many netizens flaming and taunting SG Road Vigilante as the bikes parked there actually belonged to police officers who worked at the nearby AMK police HQ.  Interestingly, SG Road Vigilante retaliated and filed a complaint with the OneService platform. We hope they update everyone on whether these bike owners will get any form of punishment...
