Youths use Circuit Breaker period to ride PMDs in CTE tunnel!

With roads pretty much empty under this current semi-lockdown period, some youths have been spotted making use of the empty roads to ride their PMDs. As seen on a facebook page SG Reckless PMD Riders, three youths can be seen in the short Instagram video riding next to each other at high speed in the CTE Tunnel. Admittedly, the clip isn't of the best quality but it does seem like they were doing in excess of 40km/h, well over the speed limits of e-scooter.  Of course, it doesn't matter as no one is allowed to be using their PMDs on the public road.  In fact, they aren't even supposed to be out of their homes at all and going for joyrides! Check out some of the comments on the page. Not suprisingly, they were not very pleasant. SG-Reckless-PMD-Riders-PMD-high-speed-at-CTE-Facebook.mp4

Lost horse makes final bid for freedom along Eng Neo!

Maybe the mare knew that the our country is going into a semi-lockdown state and wanted to do some last minute exploring first... Spotted by several road users along Eng Neo Avenue, the white horse was apparently lost and was in fact trying to find her way back to her stable on 5th April. As reported by The Straits Times, its owner Ronnie Lim, who also owns Paisano Polo Academy at Turf Club Road, the 11 year-old horse was found 20 minutes later after running off at 4pm.  A horse handler had taken it to the paddock that afternoon and was just about to close the door when there was a loud screech from some vehicles on the road nearby, causing her to take fright and run. According to Mr Lim, it was the first time this happened and Cocorita, was a children's riding horse and was usually mild mannered. "Horses tend to find their way back and we're happy she's all right," said Mr Lim, 58, adding that they had found her grazing on a grass patch along Eng Neo Avenue. "She probably got distracted and had a bite." ea6e93fa-bbff-46bc-a4a5-4d669c18cbd6.MP4 f2c06154-220d-4b9c-b3f3-59a2540bed49.MP4 b6a36525-3c1d-4249-bc54-5fc24182ea30.MP4

Lorry flips over no thanks to careless taxi!

Another day and another careless driver. Today, we have for you guys an accident that happened at the junction of Orchard Road and Buyong Road.  As seen from the photo, a SMRT cab has collided with a Nissan truck which in turn has flipped over.  We hope those involved in the accident are alright as of press time, though there is currently no news on whether there are any injuries or not.  8e96337c-f950-4b82-a6ef-90577e45cdbc.MP4 From the video, we can understand a bit better what caused the truck to flip over. That said, we have no idea why the taxi slowly crept forward into the junction although the lights did not turn green. We did note that his brake lights weren't on all when he came into frame, suggesting to us that he could have fallen asleep at the wheel, letting the car roll forward into traffic.  

Practically a 2 Series for everybody!

With a wide range of body styles, BMW's 2 Series family has a practical choice suitable for every driver There was a time, maybe 20 years ago, when car nomenclature was simple and straightforward. Before the rapid introduction of new model ranges, parsing a BMW was pretty clear-cut – the 3 Series was the compact model, the 5 Series the mid-sized model and the 7 Series the large flagship sedan. Quite easy, no? Nowadays, it's not quite so simple anymore. BMW's core model range now spans eight numerical designations, as well as seven X designations for its Sports Activity Vehicles (BMW’s terminology for its SUVs). And, with multiple body styles across the various model series, it can be a little complicated to immediately wrap your head around it. Take the brand's 2 Series lineup for example. It is positioned as a practical choice for aspiring buyers. However, a quick look across the range reveals that there are many different body styles that will cater to a wide range of buyers who all have different needs. Sleek sensation - 2 Series Coupe When people think of the 2 Series, this is probably the compact and stylish model that usually springs to mind – the 2 Series Coupe. With its sleek sheet metal and squat presence, the 2 Series Coupe certainly distinguishes itself from the crowd. Sheathed within the stylish exterior is a cabin that delivers ample equipment and everyday luxury. Of course, the 2 Series Coupe also impresses with its on-road dynamism, with its short wheelbase making for a sharp and direct drive packed with enthusiasm and fun.  Airy amenity - 2 Series Convertible Those seeking an open-top experience will surely be drawn to the 2 Series Convertible. Yes, it is rather similar to the Coupe in terms of size, design and the mechanical bits, but the experience is completely different. Being able to take the roof off has much to do with that. It delivers a softer, more relaxed experience that implores you to bask in the joy of open-top driving, allowing you to take in the fresh breeze whipping through your hair. With the Convertible, you're sure to attract looks everywhere you go. Elegant expression - 2 Series Gran Coupe For those in the market for something with a slightly more bold, modern and expressive feel, the newly launched 2 Series Gran Coupe certainly fits the bill. As the most accessible four-door BMW coupe, the Gran Coupe finds a delightful balance between style, practicality and dynamic capability. Of course, being the newest model, it also delivers the latest in technology, including equipment like the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant and the most advanced driver assistance systems. Practical prowess: 2 Series Active Tourer/Gran Tourer With the five-seat Active Tourer and seven-seat Gran Tourer, the 2 Series also demonstrates the ample flexibility of the platform, with these two models offering maximum utility and space for drivers. Clearly designed with families in mind, the MPV offerings prioritise cabin space, daily comfort and overall utility without sacrificing qualities such as style and refinement. Resolute range – 2 Series Active Tourer with eDrive BMW's plug-in hybrid technology also features within the 2 Series lineup, in the form of the BMW 225xe Active Tourer. The car combines the practicality and utility of the 2 Series Active Tourer with the increased fuel economy and lower running cost afforded by the additional eDrive system. Additionally, the eDrive motor also has the benefit of providing additional straight line oomph if you need it, and also lets you drive in pure electric mode. Exhilarating excitement - M2 While the rest of the 2 Series range has leaned towards offering practicality, accessibility and stylishness, there's also something for the more thrill-seeking drivers among us. Delivering the ultimate in performance, dynamism and excitement, the M2 model range encapsulates the best that BMW M Gmbh has to offer. The latest, most potent M2 offering is the M2 CS, which will be launched in Singapore sometime this year. With it, BMW M delivers the most powerful, razor sharp driving experience available within the 2 Series model range. Copious choice The 2 Series lineup boasts a wide range of models, each with its own unique personality and distinct ability. And, with a total of six unique styles within just the 2 Series model portfolio, it's clear that BMW understands the importance of catering to the diversity among its buyers. There’s practically a 2 Series of every body (type) for everybody, regardless of age or lifestyle.

Biker manages a narrow escape from a truck trying to escape the police!

With everyone encouraged to stay home due to the ongoing coronavirus , life must be quiet dull for most. However, we are pretty sure the motorcyclist at the traffic light didn't find his last friday bland at all... 92a4c569-89c1-4c7c-81f8-f298494e1650.MP4 Shot in an unknown heavy vehicle, the footage clearly shows a wild white truck doing a quick lane change at a traffic junction that has just turned red along Jurong Town Hall Road.  From the video, we thought the poor biker would be bulldozed by the truck but amazingly, the truck managed to avoid crashing into it!  Seconds later, viewers can see a police car coming to a stop abruptly with its tyres screeching on the bottom of the video, suggesting to us that the white truck might have been running away from the cops. According to the comments on Complaint Singapore, the police were apparently trying to arrest the driver in the truck and this was a drug-related case. Maybe more should heed this netizen's comment whereby it is better to stop in front of a vehicle that has already come to a complete stop at the lights...

Should a handicap motorist drive a Ferarri 458?

An image uploaded in SG Road Vigilante Facebook of a Ferrari 458 Italia parking at Alexandra Village Food Centre on a handicap lot. This keeps me wondering. . .  Should a disabled person drive such a monstrous car? 🤔 But on a closer inspection. . . This Ferrari 458 did not have a handicap label yet parking at a reserved handicap lot. According to the accessibilityisfreedom.org website, if you attempt to park at a handicap lot, the fine is $400. Maybe the driver is really handicap but hasn't applied for the handicap label. So just in case, you need to know how to go about it. 1) Online via e-Service (SingPass required) 2) By email or post carparklabels@sgenable.sg

Taxi driver parks green taxi on green grass, thinks no one can see this "camouflage"

An image uploaded on Beh Chia Lor's Facebook page of a green taxi parking on a patch of green grass happens to be the talk of the office today. Here's the image for your reference courtesy of Beh Chia Lor. What we know Image from https://www.taxisingapore.com/taxi-companies/hdt-electric-taxi/ This green BYD taxi belongs to a taxi company called HDT Taxi. I've not seen or sat in one, but we know that the company's fleet comprises of fully-electric vehicles with a focus on "Going Green". Also, we know that the patch of grass the taxi is on, is not a parking lot. Some scenarios to consider Maybe, the taxi driver thought his car can blend into the grass like a chameleon Maybe, taxi driver thought he John Cena Maybe, taxi driver army siao, like to "Camo On" But, the truth is, we can still see the taxi ah? What the people say Right? Whut? This taxi driver taking the company mission of "going green" too seriously.

Crazy accident causes Nissan Qashqai to flip and more

A Nissan qashqai was caught on video going out of control last friday in Bishan. As seen in the low-resolution video, the white SUV crashed through the fence and onto the wrong direction of Bishan Road while doing a flip and more. Thankfully, the lost of control of the car did not cost any lives. According to SG Road Vigilante, The 80-year-old driver and his 74-year-old female passenger were conscious when they were taken to Tan Tock Seng Hospital.   Obviously, there is going to be some negativity once the driver's age has been revealed... Thankfully there are some nice people out there that are more understanding...

Vios Driver think he F1 racer, look more like F9 handling

A video of a Toyota Vios racer wannabe losing control on All Singapore Stuff's Facebook page has gone viral! In a short span of one hour, the video has gathered 170 likes and 61 shares!

Somehow, the Vios manages to spin out of control and hits the cement portion of the highway barrier… not once but twice. Ouch. Damages This incident so viral that even my father sent me pictures of the accident. Looks bad for the poor Vios. And the irony of it all The sign says “BE PATIENT I’M LOWERED”. Can you not see the irony in this? Here’s a zoomed-in view. What the people say Yeah, lucky siol. Some resourceful people managed to find the driver's IG handle. This post made me LOL again. I think he's not smiling, he crying.

Step right up with a new Lexus IS

Looking to celebrate a big milestone and take the next step up into the life of automotive luxury? The Lexus IS will tick all the right boxes for you. The passage of time is a fundamentally inescapable reality of life, one perhaps most easily marked by the annual celebration of your entrance into this world - birthdays. But marking the passage of time should be more than just plotting out one day in the calendar. Life should be celebrated in milestones. Milestone moments in life represent significant changes - changes that elevate and enhance our lives for the better. Starting school is a big milestone. Getting your first job is a big milestone. Turning 30 is a big milestone. Getting married is a big milestone. And, buying your first premium car is a big milestone, too. Taking that next automotive step requires a fair amount of deliberation - the car needs to deliver notable improvements to your quality of life, and at the same time still needs to be practical, usable and reasonably financially accessible. And of course, it must be exciting - a fitting celebration for a grand occasion. Here are four ways the Lexus IS is the ideal choice for the next step in life. Impeccable quality Arguably, the most important thing about a premium car is its quality - from the materials used to the level of craftsmanship. The Lexus IS is appealing both outside and inside, with its sleek sporty exterior that cocoons a cabin that is faultlessly crafted with hand stitched seams and premium materials, creating a luxurious and lavish ambience. Sensible utility Sharp styling and fine materials are all well and good, but a car must fulfill its fundamental purpose well, and the Lexus delivers. Enter the driver seat and you'll feel a sense of familiarity accentuated with quality, making this car an easy driver that's ideal for city living. Parking is an effortless and anxiety-free endeavour due to its compact size, but don't let its stature fool you - the IS cleverly disguises comfortable and ample seating for up to five, and also boasts a sensibly sized 480-litre boot that will accommodate a young growing family. Easy accessibility Stepping up into luxury obviously comes at a cost, but that doesn't mean it's not achievable. In fact, with a list price of $176,800, the Lexus IS is in fact one of the most affordable cars in its segment right now. The Lexus IS also makes enhanced performance accessible. The turbocharged 2.0-litre delivers 241bhp and 350Nm of torque to the rear wheels in silky smooth fashion. And, that enhanced performance doesn't come at a significant compromise on fuel economy - the car is rated at 13.3km/L. Fitting eligibility Ultimately, celebrating milestones and taking the next step in life is all about the feel good factor. Whether it's buying your dream car, the Rolex you have been aspiring to, or even your dream guitar, these are all celebrations of personal accomplishment, and must imbue you with a sense of joy and pride. Behind the wheel of the Lexus IS, there's no doubt that you will feel good. With its effortless power, sweet and assured handling and ample refinement, the Lexus IS delivers a heartily luxurious and emotional experience perfectly suited for the modern gentleman. As a proud owner of the Lexus IS, there's no doubt that it will enhance your life is a multitude of ways, and will capably take you on to your next big milestone in life.

Fatal accident could spell the end of the discretionary right-turn!

A video showing a white car failing to check for oncoming traffic while doing a right turn has gone viral. Unfortunately, the consequences were unpleasant as a Foodpanda motorcyclist was killed in the process.  The motorcyclist, a 41-year-old deliveryman from Malaysia, was unconscious when help arrived and eventually succumbed to his injuries at Ng Teng Fong General Hospital. He was reported to have been thrown 30 metres due to the impact and suffered brain injuries as a result. According to Stomp, the accident took place at the junction of Toh Guan Road and Boon Lay Way at 7.58pm on the 10th of March. The 36-year old Mercedes-Benz driver has been arrested for dangerous driving causing death. There has been a debate that discretionary right-turn junctions should be abolished as there has been an increase in accidents related to it. Could this signal an end to such junctions?

Woman throws rubbish on someone's car, walks away with a IDGAF attitude!?

What would you do if you're heading to your car to find not one but TWO bags of rubbish on the bonnet? Gone viral A recent article on STOMP has gone viral with 126 shares in under 2 hours! Here's the article! Woman caught leaving rubbish on driver's car at Bukit Panjang The article describes how a woman got caught on video tossing trash on to someone else's car at a carpark in Bukit Panjang. The owner was naturally pissed off when she saw rubbish on her car. Video evidence Thankfully, the owner had a dashcam camera that recorded everything. In the video, you can see a Volkswagen Jetta pull up and park beside the "victim's" car. A woman gets out of the Jetta and dumps Trash Bag A. She then disappears out of frame for a pretty long time and suddenly, at about 1.26 into the video, another trash bag, (Trash Bag B) appears next to Trash Bag A. The woman then cooly takes all her barang barang and walks off. No F#$s given. Who should you notify There have been cases like this before. Remember that incident when someone found soiled diapers on their car? The proper authorities to report to would be the NEA. They’ll sort you out and bring the culprit to justice! NEA Hotline: 6225 5632 But, if someone did that to my car…. What the people say Wah, throw at each other okay lah. Don't play with one another car leh!   *Images and screenshots taken from STOMP and STOMP Facebook Page      

Driver tries to drive through a pedestrian crossing, triggers Ang Moh pedestrian!

A very blurry video has been uploaded on Roads.sg's Facebook page. It hasn't gone viral yet (at the time of writing this article) but, there's a massive potential for it to explode online. Help me out here people. I'm very divided about this one. It's a short 25-second video of a driver attempting to drive through a pedestrian crossing when the green man indicator is lit. This action angers an Ang Moh pedestrian and a clash of egos ensue. If you haven't seen the video, here you go! Thanks, Roads.sg   The driver’s perspective There's a noticeable gap/window for cars to drive through the pedestrian crossing even though you can see the blinking green man. The two vehicles in front of him went through with no issues. If it's safe to go through, why not right? The pedestrian’s perspective The Ang Moh pedestrian who came running up to stop the driver from proceeding must have felt that the driver was too impatient and should have just waited a little while longer before making the turn. Clash of egos The pedestrian then proceeds to block the driver until the green man turns red before walking out of frame. You’ve made your point, move along lah! Why need to do this? This isn't Hong Kong eh! The driver, on the other hand,  keeps saying that "he has a camera". Pretty pointless statement in this case no? Can you see why I feel divided on this? What the people say Next day newspaper headlines: "Body of man found swimming with the fishes" Probably a joke. Probably. The injustice of it all still lingers in the hearts of many like the death of Harambe. I guess, in the eyes of the public, we know whose side they're on. The driver needs a better dashcam though.    

It is the ever-popular Volkswagen Golf!

You've seen the Youtube thumbnail and you know what it is! Volkswagen's ever-popular Golf is put through its paces in this week's video review, here in the 1.4-litre Highline variant! It seems like our tester are likewise really eager to test this car? Check out how dead serious Idris is about talking Julian through the car's tech! Seems like our testers are so impressed with the interior, that they go on to make some crazy statements? So is it a simple case of 'go buy'? It looks like it isn't necessarily so! Exactly what happened during the drive? And what exactly has Julian so vexed about the Golf? Watch the full video to find out!

A new tester, a new format, and the new Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake!

That's right! We are back and with us today is a whole new tester! Let's give a warm welcome to our resident Journalist, Idris! This new video is adopting a whole new format, so let's see what the two get up to in the new Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake! Seems like both of our testers are properly impressed by Mercedes' MBUX system, but it seems like there's something else about this car that has Idris tickled? But of course, the reason why you would get this is because of the boot and the added practicality! Does the added practicality compromise the handling prowess of the Mercedes CLA? Idris takes it for a spin to find out, and you can discover for yourself if you should opt for the Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake in the full video here! Tell us what you think about the new format!

Red-light-beating AETOS driver exclaims "Potong Jalan" after getting T-boned by taxi!?

A video of an accident between an AETOS car and a taxi has become viral. The video was uploaded on Singapore Road Accident's Facebook page less than 13 hours ago and has since garnered 267 shares! If you haven't seen the video, here you go! In the video, the AETOS driver makes a right turn when the right-turn arrow is in the red. The oncoming taxi was unable to brake in time and crashed head-on into the side of the AETOS car. How do we know this? The video is so blurred! It's a simple skill of deduction, my dear Watson. Spot it? Just in case, here's how it should look to make a proper right turn. Now compare it with the screenshot above. Potong Jalan siol A few second after the crash, the AETOS driver starts shouting (to no one in particular): "Potong Jalan siol."   I always thought that this phrase meant "steal" or "walked away". Like "I potong jalan-ed his girlfriend." Ooooh. Thanks, Smart Local! I digress. There was no way the taxi “potong-ed” the AETOS driver because the taxi had the right of way. If you don’t speak Malay, you might have missed this I went through the video with my Malay-speaking colleagues, and they picked up something interesting. At 0.33 – 0.35 ish of the video, the driver says "Kau suroh jalan eh?" - "you said move eh?". This was probably directed to the passenger who told him to go ahead and make the turn at the start of the video. This AETOS driver damn fast to push blame sia.   What the people say Another guy caught it too! And, yes, I hope everyone is fine as well. It was quite a hard crash. Agreed. There’s always a practical commenter. Is it?        

Driver races with a Hayabusa and spins out of control but recovers "initial D" style!

Singapore has its very own Takumi! (The main character of Initial D, btw) A video of a car with unknown origins racing against a Suzuki Hayabusa has received over 40 shares under 5 hours! If you haven't already seen the video, here you go! The original video is from District Singapore's Facebook page.   What's happening? In the video, it starts with the Hayabusa abruptly cutting into the cam car's lane and causing the car to swerve and spin out of control. But, the car driver somehow manages to retain back control and continue on his merry way. The kicker? Image: New Initial D Legend 1: Awakening (Sanzigen, Liden Films, Sentai Filmworks) That's not even the best part! If you were observant, you would have noticed a bunch of coins on the dashboard of the car. Watch the video again. The coins barely move even with all the spinning and swerving! Very much like the cup of water Takumi uses in Initial D no? What the people say Hayabusa good siol Confirm There’s that possibility Lol I’m just glad no one got hurt.

Man tries to sell "unused" traffic points online. Can you make sense of his listing?

Someone, seemingly in desperate need for money, has listed their "unused" traffic points for sale on an online marketplace platform. You can find the screenshot of the listing on All Singapore Stuff's Facebook page. Or, for convenience sake, here's the image. Looking for someone who need 12 points For some who might be confused, this means that the seller is willing to take the blame for you (the buyer) if you have any 12 demerit point traffic offence, which in this case, would be beating the red light. There are other 12 point offences though.  12 demerit point offences? There are 3 in total Image taken from motorist.sg However, I think only the first two are applicable because you'll have to attend court for the last one (opportunists can charge a higher fee for this, I suppose). Is this legal? You say leh? Of course not! If you get caught abetting a "criminal", under section 204A of the Penal Code you’ll be charged with But that doesn't seem to stop some dumb F@#s from trying to get some extra cash with their traffic points. If only there wasn't this dumb doxxing law now. We could expose their identities but, oh well. What the people say Apparently, there's like a black market rate for points. What in the world. Wait a minute, doesn't that mean that the person selling for $250 is giving a mad discount? Yeah the listing is a little confusing right?
