All for the gram: An individual posts a video of himself and others illegally disposing petrol from a motorcycle

Sometimes, people do things without thinking about the consequence of their actions.  Ignorance is bliss, am I right? Until someone decides to take a video and post it on the internet for the world to see.  Watch this video to find out how the internet is capable of f@*king you up when you least expect it to: What Happened? A group of people, who are presumably friends, were caught disposing petrol from a motorcycle just outside an Esso petrol station.  The group can be seen lifting the motorcycle and tilting it to drain the petrol next to a grass patch.  Their actions were filmed and posted by an individual from the group on his IG account and IG story. I guess it is a norm to document any interesting part of your daily life experience and upload it to social media in today's digital age. Everything is 'for the gram' these days. The Rationale Behind Their Actions With the surge in petrol prices in the recent months, it makes their actions seem absurd. The only possible, logical explanation for their action stems from the stupidity of the rider who pumped the wrong type of petrol. (Eg. Pumping of diesel petrol instead of 92 or 95.) Other than the above, it makes no sense to dispose of any unused petrol in the tank, especially in an undesignated area.  Interestingly, one individual came forward to address this issue...in a horrible fashion.  Instead of acknowledging the group's wrongdoing and making the appropriate amends, this individual decided to defend the group.  If I told you to eat shit, will you? Come on, just spare several seconds to think rationally, and avoid any unnecessary trouble.  Netizens' Comments It is highly likely that he did. Either forgot about SAF's 9th Core Value or haven't served yet... Please help to educate them🤐     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow transfer for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️ https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

$500,000 GTR with $4000+ worth of parking fines tries to escape $6.52 parking fee

TL:DR – The title says it all. The owner claims that he ended up paying the $6.52 in the end, and the accumulated fines were due to the inability to navigate slopes at the MSCP because of the GTR’s lowered stance.   When you drive an eye-catching car like a Nissan GTR, you’d better be on your best behaviour on the roads. There are digital eyes everywhere! Trying to escape paying carpark fees is not an example of ‘best behaviour’. Here’s the video for a weekend laugh.   Updates on SGRV While normal tailgating out of carpark videos can be mundane, this update piqued my interest. The fines Let’s have a look at the fines.   HOW IN THE WORLD DOES ONE RACK UP SUCH AN INSANE AMOUNT OF PARKING FINES? The whole argument that “Home MSCP too steep” is also somewhat weak. Park at an open-air carpark maybe? Does this car look familiar? So, we did some searching for GTRs on sgCarMart like we do every day (just to drool over things we cannot afford) and we found this: Compare that with the GTR in the video. I'm sorry this was the best shot we could get.... it's lowered after all. Do you think the hood vents on the body kits look somewhat similar? If they are the one and the same, that’s defnitely a creative way to ‘siam’ the $4000+ parking fines. Online Chatter Zero logic. Absolutely zero. Well, to be fair, he sent an image of the payment     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow transfer for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️ https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

Tesla Model 3 lets a BMW 535i eat dust and showcases its insane torque at a traffic light

According to LTA, the number of new Teslas in Singapore increased from 8 to 487 from July to Q3, 2021.  Regardless, the number of Teslas in Singapore remains small and unreported in user-submitted video platforms...until TODAY!  Warning: The video contains wheel spins, turbo spooling, engine revving, and exhaust burbling Excited? Watch the video here: The Cars Involved What Happened? The "race" took place at Orchard Road, where the BMW 535i (cam car) attempted to chase down a Tesla Model 3 Performance. Upon the traffic light turning green, you could hear the wheel spin of the BMW 535i as all 300 BHP was sent to the car's rear wheels. Meanwhile, the Tesla Model 3 Performance was almost silent, apart from the noise coming from its tyres.  Tesla's instantaneous torque coupled with its All-Wheel Drive and 473 BHP allowed it to gap the BMW 535i within seconds.  I would say that the Tesla smoked the BMW 535i, but...there isn't any exhaust system on a Tesla. How to smoke when there isn't any smoke? You could hear the BMW driver laughing to himself in defeat and telling his passenger that his BMW was no match for the Tesla.  BMW driver Could Not Swallow His Pride Moments later, both cars met at another traffic light, where they raced again. Sad to say, it was just a copy-paste of the previous race.  At this point in time, you just feel so bad for the BMW 535i driver.  Netizens' Comments Probably the only thing the BMW can win the Tesla in. That's some audacity right there. Funny sia.     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow transfer for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️ https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

Audi driver flaunts his 1-litre turbocharged 'sports car' by revving loudly in the neighbourhood

Imagine it is the weekend, and all you want is to get some rest in your peaceful, quiet and comfortable house before the workweek starts.  BUT NO. In the distance, you hear a low, noisy exhaust burbling sound coming from downstairs your block. And this is what you see: What's the first thought that comes to your mind? Frustration? Anger? Disappointment? You tell me.  What Happened? Apparently, this frustrated Bedok resident managed to take a video of this rowdy Audi driver that has constantly disturbed the estate's peace.  From afar or a single glance, the car's quad exhaust makes it appear as though the driver is driving an RS3, S3, or even a "Quattro tuned" Audi Sportback.  If it were any of those cars, the noisy exhaust would have been understandable.  But wait, here comes the twist: That "sports car" is none other than a 1-litre A3 Sportback. Putting Things Into Perspective The Audi A3 1-Litre Sportback has 114BHP and 200 Nm of torque, with 9.9 seconds for its 0 - 100km/h timing.  And the fact that a noisy aftermarket exhaust is equipped to this ordinary car definitely poses as an annoyance to Bedok residents.  Worse still, it pops and bangs even when its speed is <20km/h.  So do you think this Audi A3 has an illegal or LTA approved exhaust? Do you think his exhaust system is "operated"?  Netizens' Comments Sooner or later his car sure kena tow to the workshop. What's the point of stretching a 1-Litre engine to its limit? Damn, that escalated quickly.      ======== Receive a $10 PayNow transfer for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️ https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

More than 50 cyclists gather for an unofficial cycling event and break COVID-19 regulations

An unamused driver catches a large school of over 50 cyclists hogging the roads during the early morning hours.  The video starts with footage of the cam car driving alongside the large group on Clementi Road, accompanied by funky TikTok music.  While most of the cyclists kept to the left lane, there were a few outliers on the main road. Frustrated, the driver repeatedly honks at the outlying cyclists as he overtakes the group and switches into the left lane. The rest of the video shows the driver tagging behind two cyclists at the very front of the group. What are the current COVID-19 regulations for cyclists? The video featured a screenshot of the current regulations from the Singapore Cycling Foundation (SCF).  According to the SCF, cyclists are allowed to travel in groups of 5 from November 22. If there are more than 5 cyclists, they should keep a distance of 3 meters between groups at all times. Intermingling between groups before, during or after the activity is not allowed as well. While the SCF allows for mass cycling events to occur during this period, it will require an endorsement by Sport Singapore before being conducted. Organisers have to apply at least 14 days before the event for approval and modifications, if necessary.  LTA's 2022 cycling regulations According to Channel News Asia, those cycling on the roads from Jan 1, 2022, will have to keep to groups no greater than five bicycles in length, roughly the length of a bus. The new rule means cycling groups on roads will be capped at five riders in single file, or 10 if cycling two abreast.  This new regulation is put in place due to the space constraints on Singapore's urban road network.  Netizens' reactions After watching this video, most netizens were far from amused by the government's lack of action towards cyclists and other individuals flouting the current regulations.      ======== Receive a $10 PayNow transfer for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️ https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

This Hiace driver is a hero Singapore did not ask for but definitely a hero we need on our roads

Not all heroes wear capes; some of them drive a Toyota Hiace. In this video, a cam car and a silver Hiace were waiting to turn right at a junction. As the green signal came on, both vehicles started to make their turns. A silver Prius suddenly charges straight through the junction out of the blue, clearly ignoring the red light signal on the road.  The front of the van almost swipes the side of the car as it rushes past both vehicles. Unimpressed, the cam car follows the silver vehicle and forms right behind it in the next junction. However, the van driver was not going down without a fight. As he reaches the same junction, he sticks to the left lane.  He then proceeds to charge towards the Prius, only to abruptly stop in front of it, narrowly missing it by an inch.  According to the cam car driver, the van driver confronted the other driver as he slowly straightened out his vehicle.  That ought to teach the Prius driver a lesson for beating the red light! Netizens' reactions He most definitely was not!  With the way this Prius drives, I wouldn't be surprised if there were more clowns like this on the streets of Singapore.     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow transfer for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️ https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

Transformers in real life? Optimus Prime identifies a lorry as Megatron and takes it down violently

Transformers used to be every kid's dream toy back in the good old days – what's not to love when it's based an innovative combination between cars and robots? The driver of a prime mover seemed to be stuck in his dream as he re-enacted a scene you would probably see in a Transformers movie. What Happened? The cam car was driving along Kian Teck Avenue when he witnessed this horrifying accident between a prime mover and a lorry.  Just as the cam car and lorry was passing by a junction, a prime mover emerged from Kian Teck Drive and smashed headfirst into the side of the lorry.   The impact was so great that it caused the lorry to topple over to its side.  Luckily, there seemed to be no passengers in the back of the lorry.  Below is a clearer view of the accident location: It was clear as day that the prime mover driver disregarded the stop-line and assumed he had the right of way since he was travelling straight.  Playing the Devil's Advocate? Nope, don't start on the "it is partly LTA's fault because they did not maintain the road signage which caused the stop-line to be faded".  Regardless of how faded it is, the stop-line remains visible to any road user, and this suffices.  The fault lies entirely on the prime mover driver.  The Outcome of the Accident At this point, it remains unknown if anyone was seriously injured in this accident.  Nonetheless, we wish anyone involved in this accident the best of health and a speedy recovery. Netizens' Comments Indeed. It has an uncanny resemblance to Transformers... There is a significant difference between being unable to stop in time and did not bother to stop.      ======== Receive a $10 PayNow transfer for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️ https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

YP gets put in his place after driver reports his absurd behaviour to the police

When life doesn't go our way, we have to suck it up and move on. Some of us, however, tend to go the other direction. A video of a young punk (YP) harassing a driver in a multi-storey carpark late at night has circulated on Facebook. The man who recorded the incident stated that he heard the YP shouting late at night while the driver honked at him to give way. In the video, a driver is trying to park his car in one of the lots. As he reverses, the YP waddles forward and blocks his path. He then madly waves at the driver and hits the bonnet of the car. Not wanting to confront the crazed punk, the driver remains seated in his vehicle.  After some time, the YP gets tired and sits at the side of the car. At this moment, the driver attempts to escape and drive off to a safe location. However, the YP immediately stands up and blocks the car while shouting at the driver. Slowly, the car inches forward as the driver attempts to drive away from this madness.  Not wanting the driver to leave, the YP continues to taunt him by blocking and leaning on the car's bonnet. Ten minutes later, police officers arrived on the scene after responding to the driver's call. I guess you could say that this YP won the battle but lost the war. Netizens' reactions Hello IMH, I think we found your missing patient.  In Singapore, harassment is a very serious offence and offenders will face a fine of up to $5,000, a jail term of up to 6 months, or both.      ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️ https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

Guardians of the 3-Boxed German galaxy

Amidst the confident strides BMW has taken with its SUVs, the 3 Series and 7 Series demonstrate why the German marque produces arguably the best luxury sedans. BMW’s current era is marked by diversification. Its Series cars now fill out every number from 1 to 8, while its Sports Activity Vehicles and Sports Activity Coupes do the same from X1 to X7 (and we’re not even at its electric BMW i range yet).    Still, look a bit further back and it becomes clear that no Bavarian hallmark has persisted as resiliently and convincingly as the luxury sedan.    The 3 Series and 7 Series have defined and bookended this segment for decades – definitive examples of what a compact executive and full-sized luxury sedan should be respectively. While standing confidently on their own as class-leaders, they are also unified in embodying BMW’s unimpeachable quality and dynamism, regardless of the number or size.   Styling you can recognise – anywhere, anytime Presence is of immense gravity in any luxury sedan.    In an automotive world keen to push out the most eye-catching designs, it’s easy to get lost in a sea of fresh and exciting faces. Not everyone can claim to bring something new to the table while still paying homage to their machines of yesteryear.   Pick a 3 Series or 7 Series from any generation, and even if you cover their hallowed blue and white badges, chances are you’d still be able to recognise them instantly.    In current form, the siblings are as handsome as ever. The details you’d expect are all there – those double-kidney grilles, flanked on both sides by twin headlights. The C-pillars on both cars also incorporate BMW’s signature Hofmeister kink.   Nonetheless, these are inherited jewels, constantly reworked and transformed to reflect the times. The 3 Series now sports LED headlights with extended contents as standard, while the 7 Series receives BMW’s cutting-edge Laserlight technology across its entire range in Singapore. This pioneering system doesn’t simply boast ten times the brightness and double the range of traditional LED headlamps, but also interacts with a number of on-board technologies to automatically adapt to what’s ahead, providing unprecedented levels of visibility and safety. As such, the car can detect obstacles and pedestrians up ahead and then illuminate them, while also knowing to dim its headlights in the face of oncoming traffic. Deliciously striking too are the familiar L-shaped taillights, first introduced in the late-eighties, which persist in full, updated glory. Featuring a three-dimensional, pop-up style, these add a further touch of elegance on both cars. For the first time ever on a BMW, a full-width light strip that remains lit throughout the day (à la daytime running lights) even crowns the rear of the 7 Series, accentuating its grandeur. A car fit for the 21st century    Having the latest tech on board is de rigueur on any luxury sedan. This is an assignment BMW has always understood. Back in the nineties, the E38 7 Series was one of the first cars ever to offer satellite navigation. Three generations later, BMW’s flagship saloon continues to innovate and deliver groundbreaking functionality by offering an intelligent Remote Control Parking feature. With its ability to move in or out of forwards-facing lots without a driver at the wheel, the occasional yet inevitable parking headache is easily eliminated. As part of BMW’s current generation, both the 3 Series and 7 Series come with the Operating System 7.0, which includes the immensely useful Intelligent Personal Assistant, a voice-activated personal butler for the car. It won’t take long before you start wondering how life was previously like without it. Need to find a petrol station quickly? “Hey BMW”. Calling your kids on the way home? “Hey BMW”. In the 7 Series, you can even channel your inner music conductor with gesture controls; twirl your finger to adjust the volume or swipe your hand to dismiss notifications (other gestures can also be configured).    The 3 Series and 7 Series also excel in embracing the digital era in elegant and measured portions.   Fit for the 21st century, both cars come with BMW’s Live Cockpit Professional. In addition to a fully digital 12.3-inch instrument cluster, a responsive 10.25-inch touchscreen supporting wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity takes centre stage. All the information you need, from your location, weather and phone notifications to news updates, is displayed in rich and crisp colour; in a tile layout that can be customised depending on what you want to see.     Still, there is value in familiarity. Tactility is refreshingly present. Air-conditioning is adjusted via dedicated controls, and the iDrive rotary knob is as delightfully intuitive as always, especially when on the move.    Above all, the tech is enjoyable because the very basics of a luxury cabin are first pinned down. Climbing into these cars, it is immediately apparent how well put together everything is with soft-touch materials everywhere to be found. These are all the more present in the 7 Series, with its Nappa-leather quilted seats.   Despite being BMW’s compact executive sedan, the 3 Series offers more than sufficient rear legroom and headroom, making it is as much a car for passengers as it is for drivers. On the other hand, the 7 Series stays true to its form by fully embracing its limo credentials and proportions, with a cavernous and cossetting rear cabin fitted with extra creature comforts such as electrically reclinable rear seats and window blinds which can be raised at the touch of a button. BMW’s core: Sheer driving pleasure    True to the marque’s decades-spanning slogan, dynamism and athleticism are sacred qualities that BMW’s luxury sedans have always embodied faithfully. More than ever, the 3 Series is eager and spirited, regardless of which engine you go for. The steering is properly weighted, accurate and sharp. At the same time, the car feels balanced and planted, thanks to its carefully calibrated 50:50 weight distribution. Now into its seventh generation, the 3 Series remains the compact executive sedan to beat when it comes to driving dynamics.    Step into the 7 Series after driving the 3 Series and the same driver-centric cockpit greets you. Don’t be fooled by the lux-limo’s size though. This thing takes off when you put your foot down, but does so in such an unruffled manner that it takes you a good few seconds to realise your speedometer has started displaying three digits.    As a full-sized luxury sedan, the 7 Series also comes with its own party trick: Adaptive two-axle, automatically self-levelling air suspension is standard across the range. In “Adaptive” mode, the car wafts along calmly by default, with the individually controlled air supply to each wheel deftly balancing the ride out over undulations. Upon sensing that you’re pushing it for performance, however, the car will adjust its suspension without extra prompting to cling more tightly to the road. This consistent sense of stability doesn’t simply enable the 7 Series to handle like a much smaller car, but also glide between comfort-oriented and sportier driving modes quickly and effortlessly.     Speaking of driving modes, “Comfort” and “Sport” aren’t fancy, superfluous settings on the 3 Series and 7 Series.    In Comfort mode, these are dependable and welcoming companions, offering a cushy respite in heavy traffic or after a long day at work. While the 3 Series is already a refined being, the 7 Series, with its laminated glass windows and acoustic insulation, is especially masterful in drowning out road and tire noise.   But select “Sport” and the steering instantly becomes heavier; the growls from the engines a bit throatier as both cars signal that they’re more ready than before to take on the bends and corners with aplomb. Served by a buttery 8-Speed Steptronic transmission, power delivery is also urgent while smooth, ensuring that you’re never left waiting for them to find the right gear.    The luxury sedan: Guardian of BMW’s galaxy    For more than four decades, the 3 Series and 7 Series have been tireless in bookending the luxury sedan segment, competently covering the bases they’re supposed to and then some. The former, as a benchmark-setting compact executive sedan, offers best in class driving dynamics, but doesn’t skimp on comfort, refinement, or space for its passengers. The latter more than aces the luxury limo test yet doesn’t forget its irrevocable identity as an ultimate driving machine with its impressive litheness.    To top it all off, leading tech and an inimitable design language continue to deliver a look and feel that is unmistakeably BMW. First as pioneers, and now as cornerstones, the 3 Series and 7 Series continue to spearhead and guard BMW’s ever-growing galaxy.

Drivers cause a chain collision along the PIE after slowing down to avoid getting caught by the TP

I’m sure there are many people who drive a ‘little’ over the speed limit on expressways, especially if traffic conditions are clear. After all, what's the harm in speeding it up a little? However, this mentality bites us in the butt when unforeseen circumstances occur – such as the sudden appearance of TP officers. These drivers show us why it’s crucial to pay close attention and keep to the speed limit while driving on the expressway. The video starts with the cam car travelling on the PIE along Steven Road. Right behind him, several drivers on the inner lane casually cruise by. Just as the cam car merges into the left lane, the driver notices two groups of TP officers on the left road shoulder of the expressway. The first group of officers attended to a stationary car on the road shoulder, while the second group were parked further down. The sudden appearance of these TP officers startles the drivers on the inner lane, leading them to hit the brakes and slow down to avoid getting fined for speeding. This, however, proves to be futile as the drivers fail to notice a stationary white Mercedes taxi in front of them, resulting in a massive chain collision. It is unclear if the taxi suddenly braked because of the TP officers or whether it was already involved in an accident prior. If only the drivers had paid more attention to the road, they would have saved their vehicles and wallets from an expensive repair job. Netizens’ reactions Yep, if these drivers did nothing wrong and were sticking to the speed limit, they wouldn't be in such a hurry to slow down.

Foodpanda rider finds two cute sleepyheads on his bike as he gets ready for work

I say, take the day off and let them sleep! As the end of the week creeps around the corner, most of us might lack the motivation to wake up early in the morning and report to work. However, one Foodpanda rider receives a sweet surprise as he gets ready for another day of deliveries. As the rider approaches his motorcycle, he finds two sleepy stray cats using the vehicle as their beds.  Unfazed by the scene, he wakes them up as he tries to turn on the motorcycle. Judging from his actions, it seems that this might be a common occurrence and that these cats are no stranger to the rider. With one cat comfortably splayed out on top of his Foodpanda bag and the other cosied up in a basket, they attempt to return to their beauty sleep. The rider continues to gently shake both animals awake as he needs to get to work immediately. Note: While it might look like it, the rider is not choking the white cat in this portion of the video.  If this isn't the cutest thing you've seen today, then I don't know what is!   Netizens' reactions It's so heart-warming to see this rider being so gentle with the cats. If I was a sleepy cat, I would definitely pick this spot to sleep in too!     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow transfer for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

Stupid or ignorant? Mercedes driver films himself speeding and post it online for the world to see

Not gonna lie; Mercedes does have some sick, sporty-looking instrument clusters in their cars. But don't get me wrong, driving a Mercedes Coupe with a sporty-looking instrument cluster is not equivalent to driving a sports car. Watch this video to find out what I mean by that:  What Happened This 15-second video seemed to be originally posted on the Mercedes driver's Instagram story. In the video, the driver performs a "launch control" upon the traffic light turning green.  With all the fancy instrument clusters of his car, you would assume that he is driving a Mercedes sports car. But here is the anti-climatic part: It took the driver exactly 11 seconds to get from 0-101km/h. (That is equivalent to a Honda Civic's 0-100km/h timing) I mean, a Honda Vezel Hybrid could probably outrun his Mercedes C180 Coupe in a 0 to 100km/h race EFFORTLESSLY. But do you see Honda Vezel drivers taking video of themselves "launching" their cars? NOPE.  Before the video ended, the driver could be seen hitting a speed of 118km/h.  License Kantong Already Let's give him the benefit of the doubt and assume the speed limit of that stretch of road is 70km/h; the driver still exceeded the speed limit by 48km/h. Also, don't forget the driver's usage of his mobile phone to capture this priceless moment.  According to the Road Traffic Act, exceeding the vehicular speed limit by 41 to 50km/h will result in 12 demerit points and prosecution in court.  Furthermore, using a mobile device while driving will result in 12 demerit points and a fine not exceeding $1,000 or imprisonment of up to 6 months or both (1st-time offenders).  Well, that is 24 demerit points and a court date just for that 15-second video. The driver's stupidity is pretty darn amazing.  Netizens' Comments Straight up facts. I doubt he can take corners and use his phone to film simulateneously🤐

Lady driver asking if she can take this lot from a man-made parking cone

If you have visited a hawker centre before. You will know that in Singapore, we have a "chope" culture. You can "reserve" your seating when you place your prized tissue paper and it will make known to the public that this seat is taken. Today we have this XMM which I am assuming is helping her boyfriend to "chope" a lot. But instead of using a parking cone to cordon the lot, she stands and reserves the lot herself.   The lady driver was very polite to ask if she can take this lot. 🤣 Unfortunately, this is a very short clip. I do not know what the XMM replied. Anyway, folks I strongly do not recommend you to "chope" a parking lot. Our parking system is actually quite good. Don't take advantage of the car parks. If needed, just walk further abit. Anyway, you will need to clock 10,000 steps each day to deem you healthy. So yeah. Just walk.

Impatient Toyota Dyna driver creates a new lane on a congested PIE. Siam la!

A Toyota Dyna driver loses patience in a slow-moving traffic along the PIE and decides to create his own lane instead. This one tops the list of all the 'brightest' ideas drivers have had over the past year.  The video starts with the cam car stuck in a traffic jam along the PIE. The driver slowly inches forward at a snail's pace as he listens to the radio. Out of the blue, a silver Toyota Dyna suddenly appears from the right of the cam car. Keep in mind that the cam car is already on the rightmost lane! The impatient driver rushes forward on the road shoulder, wanting to skip the queue and get to the main road as fast as possible. To his dismay, the cam car blocks his path as the driver continues moving forward. This forces the silver van to stop in the middle of the road shoulder. Can drivers ride on the road shoulders of expressways? According to the Road Traffic (Expressway Traffic) Rules, riding on the road shoulder of an expressway is prohibited, as the lane is supposed to be kept clear for emergency government vehicles. This includes ambulances, fire engines, vehicles used by the Singapore Police Force and vehicles owned or authorised by the government.  Drivers caught riding on the road shoulders will receive 6 demerit points and a fine of up to $250.  Additionally, stopping on the road shoulders is also considered an offence. Offenders will receive 4 demerit points and a fine of up to $200.  When can drivers use the road shoulders? According to the Road Traffic (Expressway Traffic) Rules, certain exceptions are made for drivers who need to stop or remain at rest while on an expressway. This includes vehicle breakdowns, accidents, emergencies, drivers who have to recover or remove an object on the expressway or drivers who stop to help those experiencing the circumstances above. If you must stop at a road shoulder, ensure that your vehicle does not obstruct traffic and that you do not remain at rest for longer than necessary. Netizens' reactions Looks like the driver of this Toyota Dyna has some explaining to do during his kopi session with the TP.     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow transfer for every submission we publish on Facebook!

SCDF rushed to extinguish flames from a burning Toyota Wish earlier this afternoon at Yishun

Breaking news: A silver Toyota Wish suddenly went up in flames in Yishun, producing a large cloud of smoke and a constant racket of noise.   Earlier this afternoon, pedestrians and passers-by uploaded several videos of a silver Toyota Wish burning in the middle of the road. As the flames swallowed the vehicle's insides, its horn started to produce a loud and constant noise. This garnered the attention of more individuals, who then called for the police and the SCDF. In one of the videos, police officers could be seen directing traffic at the junction. Luckily, the SCDF firefighters arrived quickly at the scene and managed to extinguish the fire within a matter of seconds. Kudos to the SCDF for acting quickly! Possible causes of car fires The first possible cause of a fire like this could be a fuel system leak. Leaks are the most common cause of vehicle fires and are dangerous as they can arise independently with minimal warning. Fuel leaking onto hot metal and plastic parts cause a fast-spreading fire, which is why drivers must ensure that their vehicles are appropriately maintained to reduce the chances of a fuel system fire. The next possible cause of a car fire could be an electrical system failure starting from fault conditions between the battery and starter cables or a high voltage that can generate a spark in the spark-ignition engine. The charging cycles of a car battery can cause explosive hydrogen gas to build up, and the electrical current from the battery can produce sparks that would ignite a fluid drip or leaked vapours. An unnoticed frayed wire could cause havoc as electrical wiring runs throughout the entire car. Netizens’ reactions While we are still unsure what had started the fire, netizens were quick to speculate potential causes.     ======== Witnessed an accident?

Everything you need to know about dashcams and data transfer

For drivers, it is crucial to have a sturdy dashcam that records high-quality footage and audio in case of a potential incident. These are trustworthy investments that provide an additional layer of security for both the driver and the vehicle. After all, the last thing any driver wants is to find his car damaged without a plausible explanation or proof of the incident. However, some drivers refuse to update their existing cameras or, even worse, do not have a working camera in their vehicles. They often justify their decisions with an “I have never been in an accident.” or an “I’m a safe driver, I won’t have to claim anything from my insurance.”. While these bouts of overconfidence save the drivers some money from purchasing an expensive camera, it often fails to protect them from the inevitable truth – no one can predict the future. Criterion for dashcams Firstly, it is crucial to get a dashcam that records at a higher frame rate. For the device to record while in motion, it must not skip frames or suffer from high levels of motion blur. When buying a dashcam, look for one that has a high rate of frames per second (fps). As a general rule, a camera that records an average of 30 frames per second is good enough. Secondly, decide if you want a dashcam that has a built-in WiFi feature. While this might seem like a waste of money, it ultimately helps in the long run when you require footage from your camera as soon as possible. Lastly, consider the temperature rating of the dashcam. In a hot climate like Singapore’s, you might want to purchase a piece of technology that can withstand high temperatures in a sealed car for long periods. Alternatively, specific cameras come with a cooling system that allows the device to regulate its temperature as it records. How do you transfer data to your phone? Although dashcams have been around for a while now, you’d be surprised to find out that some drivers still have no idea how to transfer data when necessary. If you own a dashcam that comes with WiFi, you would be pleased to know that transferring footage is as simple as a few taps on your mobile phone. Typically, most brands with WiFi dashcams have an established cloud-based application that drivers can install on their phones to access the footage from their cameras. By connecting your phone to the dashcam through the WiFi connection, drivers can easily view and save live and past recordings. On the other hand, if your dashcam does not come with WiFi, you would have to transfer your data manually by retrieving the MicroSD card. Most dashcams store the card on the side, which can be removed and inserted into a computer with an SD card adapter. From there, drivers can view and copy the video files onto their disks. What would you recommend for a dashcam? Although most cars come with a dashcam already installed, some drivers prefer to switch it out for a better device. According to this sgCarMart article, the most popular choice is the BlackVue DR590W-2CH dual-channel Wi-Fi dashcam. With an excellent recording performance, this camera can record in resolutions of up to 1080p at 30fps with wide angles of vision. It also comes with a STARVIS CMOS sensor for the front camera, producing fantastic performance in low-light conditions. Another great contender is the Marbella KR X smart dual-channel Wi-Fi dashcam. Hailing from Korea, this camera is powered by a Starvis IMX335 CMOS Image Sensor and provides detailed recordings of up to 1440p. It also features a Smart Time Lapse mode to capture parking surveillance footage of up to 48 hours without a need for an external battery pack. If both of these dashcams do not suit your tastes, you can check out the full article for a complete list of the latest cameras available!     ========= Witnessed an accident?

Toyota Prius Lalamove driver changes lane abruptly, opens the door and flips the bird at cam car

TL;DR – A stationary Prius at a set of traffic lights in Woodlands suddenly changes to the right lane. The driver then opens his door to reveal a phone in his hand and points the middle finger at cam car.   What bizarre behaviour Watch this minute-long video to understand just how bizarre. The exciting bits are in the first 12-seconds (if you have no time to watch the whole thing). Did you spot something? But, because he decided to do something so foolish, cam car caught something interesting. This mofo was using his handphone while driving! Watched the whole video? Naturally, I watched the whole video to see if cam car had done something to ignite the hellfire within the Prius driver. But, there was nothing to support that fact. Cam car did not even sound the horn when the incident occurred. Online Chatter Not just Lalamove. BlueXX also.     --------- Witnessed an accident?

This SMRT Bus has a new proximity sensor - a honking Mitsubishi Eclipse

A bus driver fails to stay in his lane and swipes the side of a Mitsubishi Eclipse. The video starts with the cam car approaching a traffic junction as he drives down MacPherson road.  The driver promptly stops right behind a green SMRT bus in the middle lane. On the right lane, a red Mitsubishi Eclipse patiently waits for the green arrow indicator to light up. As the light turns green, both the bus and Eclipse start to move forward into the junction. The bus then makes its right turn, cutting into the path of the red Eclipse. Upset that he is unable to make his turn, the driver of the car proceeds to spam the horn at the bus, which sounds a lot like a proximity sensor. The bus driver adamantly continues to make the turn, which led to the gigantic vehicle swiping the left side of the Eclipse. The video ends with the red car finally making its turn. Reckless bus drivers Earlier this year, an SBS bus driver almost collided with another driver after making a reckless right turn at Piccadilly Junction. The driver was going through the junction as the traffic light turns amber.  Instead of stopping, the bus suddenly makes a right turn, causing the driver to swerve out of the way. While Singapore has seen its fair share of bus drivers driving recklessly, this incident raises an important question. Are our current training routines and regulations sufficient for bus drivers or should there be more implemented? Netizens’ reactions     ======== Witnessed an accident?

Cam car driver’s lightning-quick reflexes saves itself from an accident with a reckless BlueSG car

TL;DR – A BlueSG car signals right but changes to the left lane, almost sideswiping cam car who swerved away just in the nick of time.   Most of us should be familiar with the whole ‘pay by the minute’ business model of BlueSg, a car-sharing company. Paying by the minute is indeed a lot more affordable than driving your car or booking a private hire vehicle. Moreso if you can reach your destination quickly. But, that doesn’t mean drivers should rush from point A to B with blatant disregard of traffic rules.   Like this BlueSG driver In this 35-second video, we see a BlueSG car cutting across two lanes from lane 1 in just under three seconds. Signalling right but changing to the left lane? Nice one lah! 👍🏼   Cam Car driver’s amazing reflexes If not for cam car driver’s lightning-quick reflexes, this would have resulted in an accident. Someone sign this guy as Singapore’s national team goalkeeper. Maybe we can qualify for the World Cup.   Online Chatter       ----------------------- Witnessed an accident?

Land Rover Range Rover doesn’t see, doesn’t know and doesn’t care about oncoming traffic

TL;DR – A Range Rover enters the main road via a small lane along Braddell road without looking out for oncoming traffic. Cam car manages to evade a T-bone incident with the Range Rover, but it almost came with a huge cost.     Wow. I know the Range Rover is a big a#@ car, but shouldn’t that mean you can see almost everything as the driver? Not this guy Watch this 35-second video and see how oblivious the Range Rover driver is.   Dangerous evasive manoeuvrers By some miracle, the cam car managed to avoid T-boning the Range Rover, but it had to swerve into the next lane and cut across double white lines in the process. If there had been another vehicle on its right, the crash would have been devastating. Not to mention, the cam car would have to foot the damages. Online Chatter A little harsh. Not! Sounds legit. Very vindicative bunch of comments. Love it. Looks like just smashing the Rover might be the best option here.     ----------------------- Witnessed an accident?

Video footage of the Parliament accident: Lower your volume for this one

There is finally video footage of the recent accident outside the Parliament House. For those who are unfamiliar with the accident, a Honda Vezel ran the red light and ended up getting T-boned by a BMW. This resulted in the Honda flipping on its side and getting wedged onto the road bollards, which shocked the female passenger in the camcar who witnessed the accident. More than a dozen individuals, including the camcar driver, got out of their vehicles to help. They were seen attempting to lift the Honda to an upright position in an attempt to rescue the victims.   The severity of the accident led to the deployment of the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF). It was reported that 5 individuals were transported to the Singapore General Hospital. According to the Straits Times, the 5 individuals comprised of 2 male drivers aged 51 and 59, and 3 passengers aged between 28 and 61. They were all conscious during the transport to the hospital.  Netizens' reactions We wish all of the victims a speedy recovery!     ------- Witnessed an accident?

Are you super confused as to what in the world this Prius driver is doing?

Sometimes it is better to miss a left turn than to risk damaging your car. While most drivers end up staying in their lanes after missing a turn, this stubborn Toyota Prius driver takes it to the next level. The video starts with the camcar approaching a busy road intersection as he drives down Yishun Avenue 6.  At this moment, he notices the silver Toyota Prius up ahead, travelling dangerously close to a green SBS bus. The car is situated between both lanes, making it hard for the camcar to move forward in the right-turning lane. It is evident here that the silver car wanted to turn left but had failed to form up properly earlier on. Instead of letting it go and staying on the right lane, the stubborn Prius decides to sandwich itself in an attempt to make the turn. Puzzled by the driver's behaviour, the camcar inches forward as the light turns green.  The bus proceeds to make its intended left turn, which ends with the silver car receiving a slight hit on its side. Unfazed, the driver tilts his vehicle towards the right. Thinking that the Prius finally is willing to make a right turn, the camcar driver slowly forms up behind the vehicle. Just as the right-turning arrow shines green, the camcar prepares himself to take his turn behind the silver car - only to be met with more bewilderment as the vehicle suddenly turns left. Is this considered an offence? While I am shocked and puzzled as to why the Prius didn't just proceed to the right, I have to say that the driver's behaviour is hazardous and inconsiderate to other road users. According to the Driver Improvement Points System (DIPS), forming up incorrectly when turning left or right is considered an offence and results in 4 demerit points and a fine of up to $150.  Additionally, failing to give way to oncoming vehicles at a controlled or uncontrolled junction merits another 4 demerit points and a fine of up to $150.  Driving or riding against the traffic flow as indicated by traffic signs is also another offence, and the penalty for it is 6 demerit points and a fine of up to $250. Regardless of how many offences this Prius driver has committed over this stubborn stunt, it is safe to say that he probably will be summoned to a kopi session very soon.  Netizens' reactions     ---------- Witnessed an accident?

While this is perfectly normal, you should always ensure the quality of the parts and the work that is done to your car, so you can enjoy peace of mind and a safe and hassle-free driving experience. Safety and quality of parts and accessories
While there’s a plethora of choices when it comes to third-party aftermarket parts to sweeten up your ride, there are equally many pitfalls that you want to avoid. Mechanical components such as the wheels and brakes directly affect the safety and performance of a car.

For example, if you want to upgrade the braking components in your BMW, it would wise to opt for the Original BMW M Performance brake upgrades. A good braking system can reduce braking distance and improve your control over the car and the safety of your passengers.

YPs doodle on probably the most expensive canvas in the world - a Volkswagen Touran

Surely these young punks have better things to do than to draw on a car with markers?   A recent video posted by Sgfollowsall has netizens wondering if this was simply an act of vandalism or if there was more than meets the eye. The video opens with what sounds like a few teenagers talking loudly and using markers to draw vulgarities on a grey Volkswagen Touran. The location appears to be an open carpark along East Coast Park. The person filming walks around the vehicle to show the various doodles made by his friends. He then proceeds to pick up a marker to make his mark on the car with an offensive comment to LTA. The clip ends with a picture of the finished product – the SGD $197,900 vehicle completely covered in doodles. Is this vandalism? At first glance, one would assume that these punks were vandalising a stranger’s car with malicious intent. However, several comments under the post highlighted the possibility of these boys playing a prank on a friend. A commenter also added that the vehicle owner had intended to respray his car and encouraged his friends to draw on it before doing so. While we are unsure of the actual scenario, let’s discuss the possible consequences of vandalism and what constitutes vandalism in Singapore. According to the Vandalism Act, writing, drawing, painting, marking or inscribing on any public property or private property any word, slogan, caricature, drawing, mark, or symbol without the written consent of the owner counts as vandalism. Offenders found guilty will be fined up to $2,000 and an imprisonment term of up to 3 years. Additionally, they will be given up to 8 strokes of the cane. Netizens’ reactions It is important for everyone to note that acts of vandalism are not taken lightly in Singapore. Even if this incident was done as a prank or with the owner's consent, it definitely hurts my heart to see these kids doodle on such an expensive canvas.     -------- Witnessed an accident?

A Toyota driver squabbles with a Lexus driver for blocking its path when both of them are illegally parked

The feeling of being helpless when you are forced into a corner can be pretty unbearable.  Watch the video below to find out what this Toyota driver did when faced with a similar situation:  What Happened? This incident happened along Pearl's Hill Road.  The Toyota driver (The person filming) went to deliver some goods and came back to a 'boxy' situation where he found his car boxed into a corner.  A Lexus ES250 doubled parked and blocked the cam car, preventing him from driving off.  The Toyota driver proceeded to call the number displayed on the Lexus' dashboard but to no avail.  Moments later, the Lexus driver returned to his car, and this was where turmoil started to brew.  The Verbal Exchange To cut matters short, here is the geist of their verbal exchange in English: The argument stopped when a passerby intervened and proceeded to calm the Lexus driver down while guiding him to his car.   Here's Some Context Here's a Google Maps screenshot for the uninitiated to show you a better view of where the incident took place.  The circled area is the exact location of the incident.  Painting A False Perception? The video painted a perspective that the Lexus driver was in the wrong for double parking.  But guess what? After looking at the Google Maps screenshot, you will realise that the area where both cars are parked is not meant for parking. It doesn't matter which party is correct or wrong - The fact that they illegally parked suggests both are equally at fault.   Netizens' Comments Try already then let me know can? Hello Uncle, do you know what is doxxing??? What a boomer. There was bound to be a comment that mentioned "NS" or "National Service". What has NS got to do with this? Stop making serving NS sound like a privilege.      ----------------------- Witnessed an accident?
