The festival of lights means nothing to the LTA and TP especially if it involves a rally of 50 motorcyclists

I guess the authorities aren't a huge fan of this tradition!  In the first few seconds, large crowds have gathered on both sides of the road as a mass of motorcyclists roar through the street. Another video showing a different perspective of this gathering captures the magical moment when the large party passes through the crowd. Riding through the roads, a cambike manages to get a glimpse of all the bikers waiting patiently at a traffic junction just before the 'parade' starts. However, it appears that a few of these motorcyclists might have attracted some unwanted attention from the Traffic Police (TP). Several officers issued fines to these cyclists as they stood around in a large grass patch. Some of these motorcyclists could be seen not wearing masks while they're waiting. Gathering during COVID-19 While it is unclear as to why these motorcyclists are getting stopped and fined, one possible explanation could be due to the fact that this event resulted in a major gathering in public. According to the latest COVID-19 rules in Singapore, individuals are required to wear a mask and stay at least 1 meter away from one another while in public. Additionally, the TP has stopped motorcyclists during a similar event last year over the Hari Raya weekend.  Netizens' reactions Upon hearing of this incident, netizens were quick to point out the difference in standards between the treatment of motorcyclists and cyclists by the authorities. Most of them did not see a problem with the event, since it was intended to spread some joy during the festive season. While we don't know the real reason as to why the authorities have stopped these bikers, it is evident that events like this attract large crowds and could potentially be a new hot spot for the COVID-19 virus.     --------------------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

Warning: Driver urges others to check all BlueSG cars before booking after horrific incident

In a recent Facebook post, a driver shares his horrific story of how renting a BlueSG car almost got him killed. On 1st November 2021, as the driver was driving his BlueSG while running errands, he notices something odd with the vehicle. According to him, the car was making weird sounds and he felt a tremble while driving. It was at this point that he decided to stop the car and inspect it at the side of the road. As the car comes to a complete stop, the front left wheel suddenly pops out and rolls away.  Shocked, the driver manages to chase the wheel and leans it against a pole as he waited for help. Upon further inspection of the vehicle, he realises that the bolts holding the wheel are missing from the hub. This is incredibly dangerous as a single missing bolt increases pressure on the wheel, which can cause damage to wheel bearings and studs and make the other bolts fall off as well.  Recounting his experience, the driver was thankful that he did not hit any vehicle and was able to stop in time before the wheel fell off and rolled away. He had intended to drive onto the expressway with the car before that. In his statement, he urged other drivers to stop driving rental cars if they experience weird sounds or trembling while on the road. He also urged those who had experienced this to report it to the company so that they could take the vehicle back before others could rent it. Hopefully, this will be the first and last time something like this happens to a BlueSG driver. Netizens' reactions While the driver managed to avoid a serious accident this time, this issue highlights the importance of performing pre-ride checks.

PSA: Walking under automated carpark gantries may cause injury (unless you're Usain Bolt)

While Singaporeans were celebrating Halloween with cute costumes and fancy decorations on the 31st, one man suffered a painful consequence when he decided to cross under the arm of an automated carpark gantry. In this short video, a cam car exits an open-air carpark when he stops to let a pedestrian cross the road. Thinking he could make it, the man hurriedly jogs across and attempts to leave the carpark by going under the automated arm of the carpark gantry. To his dismay, the arm quickly swings down and hits him squarely on the head. Upon witnessing this incident, the cam car driver lets out a loud cackle as he moves forward to exit. The poor pedestrian could be seen rubbing the top of his head as he runs off in embarrassment. Don't try this if you're not Usain Bolt, the fastest man on Earth.  Netizens’ reactions While most netizens found the incident rather funny, some found the cam car driver's reaction to being a little too insensitive.  It's always sad to lose a couple of braincells, but at least it's nothing serious.     -------------------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

Looks like the someone got a real kick from stealing a carpark lot. Or, is there another story?

TL;DR – Nissan Kicks e-POWER seemingly 'steals' a carpark lot from another car and crashes head first into the MSCP railings. Cam car who witnessed and submitted the video claims that it was an accident.     A 20-second video of a Nissan Kicks e-POWER stealing a carpark lot at a multi-story carpark has been circulating around social media and WhatsApp chats today. Here’s the footage What it looks like At first glance, it clearly looks like the Kicks had every intention to steal the carpark lot and received instant karma for being selfish and inconsiderate. Damage report 1.       The Kicks hit the car that was reversing into the empty carpark lot 2.       It also hit the MSCP railings really hard and caused cracks to appear on the walls 3.       The force of impact was also strong enough to deploy all the air bags in the Kicks Video witness speaks up So, this found its way into one of my WhatsApp group chats. I guess we need to do some research on the Nissan Kicks to verify. Nissan Kicks e-POWER Screenshot by automotiveworld.com  I think the driver begs to differ on the whole ‘enjoyable and engaging’ aspect of the Kicks’ ‘One-Pedal operation’. There’s also a brake pedal for emergencies by the way. Image by carbuyer.com.sg Online Chatter I’m going to include more comments this time round because a lot of people have tons of things to say.

Get luxury immediately with Cars & Coffee Singapore

Looking for your next luxury car but want to skip the wait? Cars & Coffee Singapore has plenty of options ready for you. If you were buying a relatively affordable car simply for getting around, the process isn’t overly complicated. You head to the showroom, pick a standard specification, pick your preferred paint colour, and you’ll have your new car in next to no time. However, when it comes to the realm of luxury cars, it’s not as straightforward as that. Customers who are spending big sums of money on their cars, especially cars that are less commonplace and thus more unique, tend to be a more discerning and pickier bunch. For such buyers, they would have much more specific requirements when it comes to their cars. Can you blame them? When you’re spending hundreds of thousands on your car, you surely want exactly the specificiation that you are looking for. Just for you Such requirements can take many forms – engine, exterior equipment, interior equipment and design, as well as specific add-on options from the manufacturer. Understandably, when it comes to luxury cars, distributors aren’t going to carry ready stock of every possible configuration possible of these cars. Take for example a Porsche 911. On top of the 21 different variants already on offer, there are 17 exterior colour options, 32 interior colour and materials options, 6 rims choices, there are more than 150 other individual options available to you on the online car configurator. If you specifically choose to option such a car from the factory, it can take a long time before the car actually gets to you. And yes, maybe you can wait. But not everyone wants to wait 9 to 12 months for their new car.
Cars & Coffee Singapore recognises this, and thus to fulfil its customers desires, it carries a wide range of ready stock luxury cars. On hand, the company boasts close to 100 ready stock luxury cars. You can have your pick of luxury models, including Bentleys, Rolls-Royces and even a Pagani Huayra. And as these cars are ready stock, you can secure your car and have it on the road quickly – no need to wait months just for your car to reach Singapore.
And, if you are looking for something super limited and rare, like a McLaren 720S or a Maybach, or you want a particular colour/trim specification of a 911 or C63, Cars & Coffee is abl to quickly source for the specific specification that its customers want. Dedicated experience To better meet the demands of these discerning customers, Cars & Coffee is also revamping its commonwealth showroom. The showroom has been redesigned to offer a more dedicated and tailoured customer experience. On top of being home to many luxury models, the Commonwealth showroom also hosts a new coffee bar that serves up premium coffee. Alongside these luxury cars, you can also find Japanese models such as the latest Honda Fit and Honda Vezel. To further enhance the buying experience, Cars & Coffee Singapore is also now offering an in-house interest rate of 1.68% - the company has managed to secure this low interest rate with the bank due to its strong sales volume. To find out more, you can visit the Cars & Coffee Singapore showroom at 1 Commonwealth Lane, #01-01 One Commonwealth Singapore (149544). Additionally, you can also visit the Cars & Coffee Megastore located at 60 Jln Lam Huat, Level 6 Carros Centre, Singapore (737869), where you can find even more cars on sale.

Childish Shariot driver thinks out of the box on how to manage his anger after vehicle cuts into his lane

TL;DR – A Honda Shuttle makes a super-illegal left turn to block the path of cam car at a slip road. The cam car had initially cut into the Honda Shuttle’s lane and the Shuttle driver was having none of it.   If someone cuts into your lane abruptly, how would you react? Whack that high beam? Sound the horn? Curse the other driver in the comfort of your car and forget about it in five minutes? That’s what I would do. But, in this latest 3-minute video, we have a Honda Shuttle driver who takes his anger management issues to the next level.   So angry for what? Drivers experience this every other day The video begins with a common sighting – a vehicle (cam car) cutting into the path of another vehicle (Honda Shuttle) to enter a slip road. We do not know whether the driver of the cam car signalled their intention to lane change. Cam car enter the slip road, Shuttle drives past as if it’s going straight. Everything seems fine and dandy, right? WRONG! Out of nowhere, the Shuttle appears in front of the cam car and stops there. We then realise that the Shuttle is a Shariot car. It doesn’t even belong to the driver! Wait a minute, hold up For the Shuttle to end up there, doesn’t that mean it had to turn left here? That’s illegal AF though, right? RIGHT?! Uncle, why you so childish? Eventually, the driver steps out of the vehicle to reveal a singlet wearing Uncle. Who uses his phone to snap a picture of the cam car’s license plate. Both parties at fault? While we don’t know what happened before the recording, I must say that the lane change by cam car felt rather abrupt and could have posed a moderate level of danger for vehicles in its rear. But that does not justify doing something illegal to prove a point. Online Chatter Cheap car hard to find though. COE so high. Remember, two wrongs do not make a right.     ----------------------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

GTA Trilogy launched early in Singapore: Featuring a hysterical Mitsubishi driver, tons of traffic police and more...

There's a distinct line between fantasy and reality.  Unfortunately, one driver simply cannot draw the line between them.  Watch how this driver continues "playing" Grand Theft Auto in the streets of Geylang: What happened?  In the dashcam video, all may seem normal at first, except for the Mitsubishi Lancer, who seems to be acting impatiently. Seconds later, two traffic police came along riding on their bikes with their blinkers on.  The first traffic police officer rode past the Mitsubishi Lancer while the other stopped at his rear.  This is where shit starts to happen. The Mitsubishi driver started reversing out of the blue, hitting the traffic police officer at his rear.  Despite being hit by the Mitsubishi, the traffic police officer still attempted to stop the car by chasing it on foot. Ignoring the impact of the accident and the commands from the traffic police officer, the driver of the Mitsubishi Lancer refused to stop. Instead, he made an illegal U-Turn and commenced his escape.  What was going on in his head vs What actually happened Close enough. The Arrest Not to anyone's surprise, the driver was arrested eventually.  How many wanted stars do you think he earned for performing this stunt of his? Netizens' Comments It is a rental car, no wonder can drive so recklessly. This law must obey no matter what🤐 Much appreciation to that traffic police officer, I hope he is recovering well!!     ----------------------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

Glass windows on a bus explode upon impact with another bus during morning rush hour

Luckily, no passengers suffered serious injuries during this accident. Earlier this morning, an GoAhead bus driver and his passengers found themselves in an unfortunate predicament during the morning rush hour.  The video starts with a cam car turning into a junction near Loyang Ave towards Tampines Ave 7. The driver notices a green GoAhead bus travelling straight through the junction as the car slowly inches forward. He then stops in the yellow box as he lets the bus pass through the junction. Out of the blue, another bus appears from the right of the cam car and abruptly turns into the junction. The sudden movement causes the second bus to hit the back of the first bus, which results in the exploding of the windows on the first bus. Passengers situated near the windows appear to be in shock as the first bus comes to a complete stop.  Pictures of the damage from the accident are posted online as well. What exactly happened? According to an online post, it appears that the driver of the second bus had misjudged the proximity of the other bus in the junction. This explains why he thought it would be possible for his bus to squeeze into the junction.  Netizens' reactions I can't imagine what it must have felt like for the window beside you to suddenly shatter into a thousand pieces. It must have been traumatising! 😭 We do hope that everyone on both buses are alright! 😥 Any updates on this accident will be posted on this article.     ----------------------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

Cyclist receives $300 speeding fine for travelling at 27km/hr on a 10km/hr path

TL;DR – Poor cyclist travelling along the South of the 24km long Rail Corridor receives a speeding fine of $300 for going 17km/hr over the 10km/hr speed limit.     Yes. You heard right. You can get a speeding fine even if you’re a cyclist. Here’s proof Where did this incident take place? The image did not precisely specify which part of the Rail Corridor (South) this incident happened. But the South Corridor stretches from Hillview MRT to Tanjong Pagar Railway station. What is Reg4(2)(b) of the Parks and Trees Regulations (Cap 216, R1)? To be honest, I didn’t even know such a thing existed either. Let’s do a quick Google search. Doesn't that means the cyclist got off relatively lucky with a $300 fine instead of the maximum $2000? 27km/hr is fast for a footpath The cyclist deserves the fine. He or she’s travelling on a footpath at nearly 30km/hr! If the bicycle hits someone, an injury is inevitable. Online Chatter What a mathematician! I was thinking about this too. It’s like what we learned in the army. Do whatever you want, just don’t…..     -------------------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

Volkswagen Roc plays a cat and mouse chasing game and ends up crashing

This video is, as the kids say, very 'happening'.  For those confused with what had just happened in the video, let me unpack it for you.  We start with the camcar (the Volkswagen Roc driver) driving down Yio Chu Kang road.  As the black car in front of him starts to speed, the camcar driver revs his engine and chases his 'friend' in a silly speeding game. 
As both cars speed down the lane, the drivers try their best to avoid crashing into other vehicles. 
However, to the camcar's dismay, he crashes into a grey car after entering a bend.  Luckily for his 'friend', he manages to squeeze past the car before it changes lanes and avoids a collision.  The video ends with several pictures of the blue Volkswagen Scirocco after the crash.
Who is at fault here?
As evident from the footage of the accident, it is safe to say that the Volkswagen Roc is at fault here. After all, it is common knowledge that street racing is illegal in Singapore. According to the Road Traffic Act, individuals found guilty of street racing will face a punishment of a hefty fine, mandatory imprisonment and forfeiture of the vehicle involved.  Following the Tanjong Pagar incident earlier this year, the authorities have introduced a series of amendments to the Road Traffic Act. This includes higher fines and longer jail times for individuals found guilty of street racing in Singapore. First-time offenders will face a maximum fine of $5,000 and up to a year in jail. Repeat offenders will be fined up to $10,000 and jailed for up to two years. Netizens' reactions While I'm not an expert at car insurance, I highly doubt that the insurance company would be willing to pay the Roc driver after they find out about his little game of cat and mouse with his 'friend'. Yep, and they look like this: I thought the video was shot from a third person's perspective as well, it took me a while to realise that it was the Volkswagen driver's POV. 😓     -------------------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

Nonchalant cyclist casually picks up fallen plastic bags after ignoring red light and causing an accident with a motorcycle

Only someone as carefree as this cyclist would care about his plastic bags after getting hit by a motorcycle.     The video starts with the cam car slowing down at a junction in Jurong West.  As his car comes to a stop, he notices a cyclist ignoring the red-light signal and crossing the junction. At the same time, a motorcyclist enters from the right at a high speed. Unable to stop his bike or swerve to avoid him, the motorcyclist knocks over the cyclist and falls to the ground. Unfazed by the accident, the cyclist immediately rises and gathers the grocery bags that had fallen off his bicycle. The motorcyclist gets up soon after and dusts himself off. Weirdly enough, the cyclist's reaction to this accident reminds me of this gif of Jimmy Fallon. I don’t know if I should be shocked or relieved. On the one hand, I'm glad that both parties are not severely hurt, but on the other, what exactly is the cyclist thinking? No matter how empty a road might seem, it is never a good decision to run a red-light signal and assume that the road will stay clear for you. Netizens’ reactions I agree! However, no matter how strict we enforce our regulations, there are always that few individuals who would go above and beyond on the roads just to do things for their own convenience. 😂😂 As much as I hate additional fines, I do think the root of the problem is the fact that most road users think it's okay to jaywalk (or jaycycle) if they do it quickly and with the right timing. Cyclists (and other pedestrians) who insist on crossing these junctions under these circumstances will be found guilty of jaywalking/cycling and be fined up to $1,000 or jailed up to 3 months.      -------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

Sliding across 4 lanes in less than a minute? Machiam like sliding into someone's DMs

Whoever taught this driver how to drive, what do you have to say now? 😥 There is definitely no way that this is being taught at driving schools. The video starts with a camcar driving along a junction at Geylang Road in the second lane. Intending to go straight after the junction, the driver slowly continues when all of a sudden, a grey car pops out and attempts a right turn. TBH the way he just slides across the junction kind of reminds me of this: A playback of the video shows that the grey vehicle is traveling along the fourth lane of the road. Upon reaching the junction, the driver realizes that he didn't form up properly to make a right turn. Not wanting to miss his turn, he slides across four lanes to make a reckless right turn right in front of our camcar driver. Luckily for him, the camcar quickly notices the vehicle's intentions and slows down. The video ends with a statement from the camcar driver, berating the other driver's selfish actions. Honestly, what is the driver thinking by sliding across so many lanes in such a short amount of time? Is it worth being so reckless and endangering the safety of others just to make a turn? Netizens' reactions Exactly! Missing a right turn is not the end of the world and yet, this driver is willing to risk it all just to have his own way. 🙄 Legit everything goes.. 🙄 If I were the camcar driver, I would be calling and reporting this to the TP the second it happened. However, as I was viewing the footage, I realise that it is fairly difficult to identify the license plate of the grey car, no matter how slowly the video was played back. Hopefully, the camcar driver is able to get a better look and bring this reckless driver to justice!     ---------------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

Mitsubishi Lancer bids farewell to its NCD after accident with four other vehicles

The driver of this Mitsubishi Lancer must be kicking himself right now. I don't like to judge the way that other people drive their vehicles, but when it comes to drivers not exhibiting the most basic fundamentals of driving, it's hard to bite my tongue. In the video, the camcar is carefully driving down the SLE expressway along Woodlands Avenue 12 due to the wet weather. Upon reaching the expressway exit, the driver slows down after he notices the white Audi station wagon doing so as well. All of a sudden, a Mitsubishi Lancer appears out of the blue from the right at an increasingly high speed. Due to the driver's lack of foresight, the car ends up skidding on the wet road and briefly clips the camcar and the white Audi.  The driver tries to stay in his lane and ends up hitting the back of a black Toyota Vezel. The force of the impact results in the Vezel hitting the back of a Toyota Altis as well. All in all, 4 vehicles were damaged by the Lancer, with the camcar and the Audi only suffering a few dents. I'm not sure how experienced he is, but I'm pretty sure the Lancer driver can kiss his No Claim Discount (NCD) goodbye after this accident. What is NCD? No Claim Discount (NCD) or No Claim Bonus (NCB) is a discount on a driver's car insurance premium based on how long he has been driving and his existing claims record. As drivers accumulate more years of driving without making a claim, they would be entitled to a discount on the yearly premiums.  Given that the driver has been insured with the same company for the past 12 months and does not have any accidents reported or made any claims under his own policy, a cumulative discount will apply whenever he renews his policy with the insurance company. An example of this would be: So if a driver has been accident-free for 5 or more years, he would be entitled to a 50% discount on his yearly premiums. That's a huge discount right there! Unfortunately, the moment a driver gets into an accident, the discount is removed and the premiums for the next year will definitely rise. What if the driver was under the influence of alcohol? If the driver is found to be under the influence by the police, the insurance company will not be paying a single cent. This would mean that all of the repair costs will be paid from the driver's own pocket, which might land him in hot water if he is unable to afford it. Netizens' reactions Yep, that's right! Also, isn't it common sense to slow down around bends? This is why we listen during our theory lessons - to avoid making idiotic mistakes like this. I think our Lancer driver might have to ransack his house to pay off his high premiums! 🤣 Moral of the story: Don't be a hero and slow down around bends!     -------------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

Brighten your day with this colourful exchange of words from two Japanese car drivers

TL;DR – A Mazda 3 driver and a Mitsubishi Attrage driver yells at one another at a HDB estate for reasons unknown.   Let’s dive right into the 49-second video. This incident looks like it occurred at a HDB estate (location undetermined), possibly near the entrance of a MSCP. Kimak! The video begins with the grey Mazda 3 driver stepping out of his car, clearly unhappy with the driver in the red Mitsubishi Attrage. . Mazda driver loses all chill and starts cursing at the Mitsubishi driver’s mother (in Malay) and other assorted dialects referencing the female anatomy. The Mitsubishi driver does play a part in this heated exchange as well. He did not project his voice as well as the Mazda driver though, so his voice is muted. What could have sparked this? Looking at the screenshot closely, I think the grey Mazda driver got mad because he was trying to make a left, but he felt obstructed by the Mitsubishi, who was turning right but positioned his car at a weird angle. Red car not in the wrong Technically, one could argue that the Mitsubishi was still within its lane, AND in his defence, he also stopped at the stop line. Online Chatter I also say. That would be a plot twist indeed. Sadly, a lot of things are wrong with the world.     -------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

M: Living with more than just a fast car

With its ample functionality, inimitable dynamic capability, and undeniable heritage, the BMW M3 Competition proves that it’s more than just a fast car.       It’s easy to get lost in the numbers. With 503bhp, 650Nm of torque, and a sub-4 second 0-100km/h timing, the BMW M3 Competition is a bombastically fast car.   However, it isn’t all about speed. Plenty of cars now pack 500+bhp, and 0-100km/h times continue to tumble across the industry, accelerated by the increasing number of electric cars. Owning and living with a fast car isn’t simply just about how quickly you can go in a straight line.   Indeed, with something like the BMW M3 Competition, there’s more than meets the eye.     1.      Duality and function   Going fast is easy. Lump in any big engine, tune it up for maximum power, and you have a simple recipe for going quickly. Making that performance usable, accessible, and available is a much trickier business.   The BMW M3 Competition has always been about finding that balance between performance and usability. With this newest generation model, there’s a greater level of day-to-day comfort, even as performance levels have gone up a notch. You can still ferry the family, whether it’s taking kids to school, doing the weekly grocery run, or even going furniture shopping at IKEA. And, a four-door saloon also means that there’s plenty of practicality. You don’t have to worry about squeezing into the rear seats.     2.      Precision and joy   Of course, with any M car, there is the eternal promise of driving joy, whether it’s simply out having fun on the weekend, or even the occasional foray to the track   Going fast? That’s easy. Just stamp hard on the throttle and you’re away. You don’t even need Sport mode. However, M cars are also known for their precise driving dynamics. With this new M3 Competition, the sedan’s dynamic capabilities have been sharpened even further. With adjustments to the car’s suspension, steering setup as well as the on-board electronics, the M3 Competition has been endowed with even more precise handling. This gives you the confidence and knowledge that you have a precise tool of power, with the ability to use all of its 503bhp when the opportunity presents itself.     3.      Fraternity and heritage   A big part of the M badge is also its extensive heritage. The new M3 Competition builds on five previous generations of performance sedans, stretching back all the way to the original E30 M3 that was first propelled into the world in 1986. With a car like the M3 Competition, you’re buying into the heritage of performance.   Naturally, that also comes with a fraternity of fellow drivers. This means the occasional meetup with fellow M enthusiasts for a chit chat over coffee, or else poring over the keen details on each other’s cars. Or perhaps, even some group drives, whether locally or overseas (whenever that happens again).     With the new BMW M3 Competition, it’s more than just a fast car. It’s an extremely quick and competent daily driver - whether it’s simply to run life’s errands, chase the joy of dynamic prowess, or simply revel in the fraternity of performance and like-minded friends.

Insurance touting might not be as uncommon as you think

What is insurance touting? Insurance touting is a form of motor insurance fraud, in which touts will approach drivers involved in accidents to offer their services in handling the insurance claims. These individuals often refer to themselves as ‘insurance specialists’, and would offer to assess the damages to the vehicles for the laundry list required for an insurance claim. Additionally, they would offer their services for vehicle repairs and would even go so far as to offer a ride to see a doctor for any injuries. Unsuspecting drivers who agree to let these individuals handle their insurance claims will find themselves on the receiving end of a measly insurance payout and high premiums. This is because these touts would often exaggerate and claim unnecessary damages from the driver’s insurance company, some of which includes medical and personal injury claims. They will then inform the driver that a sum of the payout will go towards offsetting the repair and medical costs incurred. How do they know where an accident has occurred? According to Mothership, most insurance touts are part of a larger network with tons of informants spotting accidents along the roads. As time is essential to them, having informants will allow these individuals to reach the scene of an accident before the parties involved call their own insurance companies to report the accident. They also have personal ties to doctors, lawyers and repair workshops – who will often jack up the prices of various medical and repair fees. The most recent incident of insurance touting happened in September when 6 men approached a driver who had been involved in an accident to offer their services to him.  These men travelled in a yellow Honda and a black Audi to get to the scene as soon as possible. Coincidentally, we have written articles on how reckless both of these drivers have been on the roads:   But surely people won’t fall for this right? According to the police’s Commercial Affairs Department (CAD), motor insurance fraud has been on the rise since 2017, with over 20% of motor insurance claims being dodgy. While the General Insurance Association of Singapore (GIA) has set up a hotline for suspected victims of motor insurance fraud, this does not stop the touters from targeting clueless drivers on the road. What can I do? With motor insurance fraud being such a prevalent issue in Singapore, the most important thing to do is to acknowledge and recognize certain signs. If you are approached on the road by unauthorized individuals after having been in an accident, refuse help from them and insist on settling the issue with your own insurance company. Individuals who have been offered money by touts to submit fraudulent claims, or have evidence that they were a victim of a staged motor accident should call the GIA hotline at (1800 443 7283). By reporting such cases, we can reduce the costs of motor insurance fraud, which would result in lower premiums for all drivers. Now that’s a win-win!

Jamming up the SLE for a mirror cover? Clearly, this Audi driver needs to rethink his priorities

An Audi A3 driver makes a terrible decision in the middle of the SLE expressway and gets shamed for it. That's right guys, you read the video title correctly.  In the video, a cam car cruises down the first lane of the expressway when suddenly, the grey Toyota Vios in front of him abruptly brakes. This causes the cam car to hit his own brakes as well to avoid rear-ending the Vios.  As expected, the sudden braking of both vehicles leads to a motorcyclist almost hitting the grey Vios as he performs a lane split. Puzzled over the sudden braking, the cam car eventually makes it further down the expressway, only to find a stationary red Audi A3 in the middle of the first lane. The owner can be seen climbing over the divider to retrieve something of his before running back to his precious car.  This causes the cam car driver to let out an audible exclamation of "Walao eh!", which voices his disapproval at the Audi driver's inconsiderate actions. Why did the Audi driver stop his car in Lane 1? The A3 driver stopped his car in the middle of the first lane to retrieve this: Yep, that's right - a mirror cover. For those who are unfamiliar with these, a mirror cover covers the back and over of a car's side view mirrors. Its purpose is to protect the mirrors from dirt and debris coming up off the road, as well as to contribute to its aesthetic features. While it is rare for mirror covers to suddenly fly off while you're driving, it's possible for it to happen when one or more of the connection points on the cover is bent or broken. Although it is alarming to have your side mirror covers come off, the part is usually replaceable at a dealer's workshop. This then begs the question: Was it worth it to jam up traffic just to retrieve a broken mirror cover?  Our netizens beg to disagree. Netizens' reactions I agree! The benefit of retrieving a possibly broken mirror cover does not outweigh the costs of potentially causing a serious accident. Yep, a quick search on Google shows that mirror covers cost between $20 - $50, with the pricier ones being a bit fancier. Unless you're telling me that the Audi driver's mirror covers are encased in 24k gold and diamonds, I do not see the need to stop his vehicle in the middle of the fastest lane in the expressway just to retrieve it.     -------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

A higher power intervenes when a cyclist tries to break the law and cycle on the CTE

A cyclist entering the CTE tunnel suddenly falls off his bike and onto the path of oncoming vehicles but manages to avoid causing an accident. Is this the work of a higher presence in the universe? 😱 A short clip of a cyclist cycling in the opposite direction inside a CTE tunnel shows exactly why there should be stricter enforcement of cycling restrictions and regulations. The clip starts with the camcar cruising down the tunnel, when the car in front of him suddenly brakes. It is then revealed that there is a cyclist in the tunnel going in the opposite direction. To avoid being hit by the car in front of the camcar, the cyclist suddenly stops as well, which causes him to accidentally fall off his bike. This gives the camcar a shock as he stops just in time to avoid hitting the cyclist, who immediately gets up and walks off. According to the driver, he claims that after this incident, he spots a second cyclist further down trying to enter the same tunnel as well.    Are cyclists allowed on expressways and tunnels? While it is no surprise that cyclists are allowed to ride on the roads (given that they follow the rules and the proper code of conduct while doing so), it is often unclear if they are allowed to ride in tunnels and expressways. According to the Road Traffic Act - Road Traffic (Expressway Traffic) Rules, any bicycle that is equipped with an electric motor and may be propelled by human power or by the electric motor with which it is equipped, or by both, is not allowed in road tunnels and expressway tunnels.  Additionally, according to the Road Traffic Act - Road Traffic (Expressways - Excluded Vehicles) Rules, users riding bicycles, tricycles, or trishaws are not allowed on expressways, including the KPE, MCE, and CTE tunnels.  This is because the expressways are meant for other motorists travelling at higher speeds, and cycling on these roads may cause fatal traffic accidents as drivers attempt to avoid hitting them. Cycling on expressways is considered an offence in Singapore and can result in a fine of up to $2,000 or a jail term of up to 6 months, or both.  So, the short answer to that question is no, cyclists are not allowed on expressways and tunnels.  Current cycling regulations in Singapore With the Active Mobility Act (AMA) in place since 2018, it dictates a set of rules and code of conduct to enable safer sharing of public paths among various users. The active mobility devices governed under this act includes bicycles, power-assisted bicycles (PAB), motorised and non-motorised personal mobility devices (PMDs) and personal mobility aids (PMAs). On top of riding on the roads, cyclists can also use various cycling paths, park connectors and footpaths around Singapore to get to their destination.  The full list of cycling rules and regulations while riding on the road can be found in a previous post: Netizens' reactions Can you imagine the dire consequences if the drivers hadn't stopped in time? 😱 More like the cyclist is lucky instead of the driver.  While there are laws and regulations in place to ensure that cyclists don't enter these dangerous areas, there should be stricter enforcement of these rules considering how there has been a rise in cases of cyclists on the expressways.  Otherwise, when accidents occur, the game of blame between cyclists and drivers will never end.     -------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

We have a Singapore version But unlike Ryu and Ken, this guy uses a motorcycle helmet on a taxi. Here’s the video. The incident happened at Keat Hong Close, Bukit Batok, Singapore. And another angle Why so triggered Based on the video, it’s unclear why the 90s Ah Beng look alike got so heated up. He walks around the taxi yelling profanities and smashing his helmet all over even though there was a child on board. What are the damages? Broken mirror. Make that two mirrors Broken rear window. How much force does one need to use to cause this? And of course, multiple dents and knocks all over the taxi. Police brought in In the video, a male passenger can be heard talking to the authorities on the phone. In the caption of the Facebook post on Roads.sg, it states that the Police arrived to ‘handle the situation’.

Unattentive Toyota Hiace driver rear-ends cyclist along stretch at Yishun Dam

A van driver was caught with his mind in the clouds and ends up rear-ending a poor cyclist on the road.  Did the driver fall asleep at the wheel or something? The video starts with the Toyota Hiace maintaining a good speed at the first lane of the road as the camcar drives past it.  However, the vehicle suddenly starts to veer towards the kerb. . .  . . . and charges ahead at full-speed, hitting a cyclist who was cycling on the left of the first lane. The video ends with the van coming to a complete stop after hit, with the accident warranting a few concerned looks from motorists passing by.  Who is at fault? Although there is an unspoken rivalry between cyclists and drivers, it is important to note that in most accidents, it is not always the cyclist's fault. While there are some cyclists that clearly break the rules while on the road, in this case, the driver was at fault for not noticing the cyclist earlier.  Here are some rules and guidelines from LTA for cycling on the road: Netizens' reactions Most netizens sent their well wishes to the cyclist, while some questioned the driver's intent and actions in the video.    It was speculated that the driver could have been distracted by his mobile phone, or that he could have been daydreaming and did not notice the cyclist at all.  Nevertheless, it is important for drivers on the road to be alert at all times and to always leave a space of at least 1.5m while overtaking cyclists on the road.    -------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

Watch this intense pursuit between camcar and a Porsche Macan

One would never expect an accident to occur just at the foot of their home. Watch this video to see how the cam car reacts against a hit-and-run driver: What happened? Although the accident location is unknown, the surroundings suggest that the location is situated among several condominiums.  As the cam car was making a right turn into his condominium, a Porsche Macan abruptly cuts the cam car on his right. As a result, the Porsche ended up hitting the side of the cam car.  Fortunately, the impact of the accident was pretty minor since both cars were travelling along a street. Fight Or Flight? Instead of going down to exchange personal information, the driver behind the Porsche Macan decides to escape from the cam car.  The Porsche Macan pushes out all 300-ish ponies from his turbocharged engine, gapping the distance between him and the cam car in an instance.  Shortly after, the cam car commences an intense pursuit after the Porsche and even "bashes" through the security barrier of the Porsche driver's condominium.  Stuck With Nowhere To Escape Honestly, this is the stupidest thing anyone could do -- Performing a hit-and-run and trying to hide inside your own condominium, despite the victim right behind your ass.  The video abruptly ends with the cam car speeding through the condominium's carpark, leaving viewers on a cliffhanger. Needless to say, the Porsche will eventually be caught as there is only 1 entry and exit within the condominium. All it takes is for the cam car to go around the carpark and find a dark coloured, damaged Porsche with the matching number plate mentioned in the video.  Netizens' Comments Damn right it is. At least this involves an exciting chase.  I am also looking for an "official ending". I will update this post if there is any. Lame. See you kena hit-and-run already, will keep quiet or horn all the way lor.      --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

Fierce Jaguar F-PACE runs away like a scaredy cat after hitting camcar

A white Jaguar F-PACE miscalculates camcar's actions and switches lanes too early, resulting in an unexpected hit-and-run. The video starts with the camcar and several other vehicles patiently waiting for the green light at the junction between Bukit Timah and Kheam Hock Road. Upon the appearance of the green light, all cars start to move off, with the Honda Jazz in front of the camcar making a right turn. It is at this moment that the white Jaguar F-PACE decides to filter to the right lane, as the driver assumes that the camcar would be making a right turn as well instead of going straight ahead. This results in a pretty nasty hit between both vehicles.  Unlike the fierceness of the vehicle's name, the Jaguar driver immediately increases his speed and runs away after the hit.  Do you see the resemblance?  The location of the accident While most would agree that the Jaguar F-PACE was being too 'kan chiong' in his judgement, some questioned if the camcar was in a right-turn only lane.  Upon further research, here is a quick screengrab of the location. According to the video, the camcar was in Lane 1, which is a lane where vehicles can turn right or go straight ahead, while the Jaguar was in the middle lane.  Netizens' reactions It's so sad that this is the reality when it comes to dealing with rich and arrogant drivers. 😞 Oof, if only the Jaguar driver would have thought to slow down and check his mirrors before filtering. TBH, it is easy to prevent an accident like this from happening if the Jaguar driver is alert and did the proper checks before switching lanes. However, the way he ran off afterwards is simply a cowardly action - it's not like he does not have the money to settle the damages (judging from his vehicle). I hope the camcar can catch this driver and receive the proper payout he deserves!   ---------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

Cycling without helmet or bicycle seat? No problem! The Traffic Police will not hesitate to stop you!

Seeing someone other than you get stopped by a Traffic Police is satisfying. But seeing a cyclist get stopped? Pure bliss! Watch this video to see how this pest of a cyclist gets pulled over by a traffic police officer:  What happened? This incident occurred along Bukit Panjang Ring Road. A traffic police officer pulls over a female cyclist for cycling on the road without a helmet. However, there are speculations that she is likely to be pulled over for beating a red light at the earlier junction too. This speculation could be due to her riding ahead of traffic along this stretch of straight road – it is impossible to cycle faster than cars and motorcycles alongside her.  Suitability for cycling on the road Her bicycle looks like an ordinary bicycle but upon closer inspection, you will realise that there is no seat attached to her bicycle. This leads me to this question: How the hell does someone ride a bicycle for a prolonged period without even sitting down? Furthermore, she was riding without the most basic personal protective equipment, a bicycle helmet. @Active Mobility Advisory Panel Here is a guideline/regulation for you to consider in your subsequent proposal: "For cyclists to ride on the road, they must first ensure their bicycles are certified roadworthy." Imagine if you see a cyclist riding a unicycle on the road one day — What a joke.  Netizens' comments Straight up facts right here. Typical Sinkie comment. Let's have more faith in our Traffic Police officers, okay? Even a warning is better than turning a blind eye on such matters.  Sovereign or not, this is the result of poor awareness of road safety and knowledge.      --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

Chain collision on PIE serves as a reminder to people why you should not tailgate

A black Toyota Hiace van speeds and tailgates on Lane 1 of the PIE expressway, which results in a nasty chain collision accident as he hits a motorcyclist. Again, another entitled driver who thinks he owns the road? The video starts with the camcar travelling slightly behind the van on Lane 2, as the Toyota Hiace speeds up on its own lane (aka the lane that is only intended for overtaking or for emergency vehicles). It is also important to know that at this point, there is a motorcyclist travelling in front of the van in the same lane. However, the driver of the van fails to notice the motorcyclist as he speeds up and crashes into him. The motorcyclist is flung off of his vehicle and onto the middle lane from the impact of the crash. Due to the van's high speed (it is estimated that he was travelling above 70 km/h), the vehicle is unable to fully stop and ends up smashing the rear end of another white car, crushing the motorcycle in the process. The video ends with the camcar stopping slightly behind the motorcyclist, who is seen wriggling on the floor from his injuries.  Are vans allowed to travel in Lane 1? It is a common myth (or belief) that vans are not allowed to travel on the first lane of the expressway, let alone tailgate and speed on it. According to LTA, there are no special restrictions for Light Goods Vehicles in terms of traveling on the expressway. The only thing to take note is that these vehicles should travel between 60km/h to 70km/h and that it is recommended for them to stay in the third or second lane, given that they don't hog traffic. While this does mean that the van can travel on the first lane when necessary, it does not excuse the Toyota Hiace driver's reckless actions. Even though tailgating is not technically illegal, the consequences of a serious accident caused by tailgating could result in the driver's license being suspended, a large fine and demerit points, and even jail time. Netizens' reactions I'm not sure if the van is modified but it is true that drivers are getting more and more daring these days. 😱 Honestly, this sounds like a great idea but I doubt that would stop vans and other commercial vehicles from speeding. 😓 We wish the motorcyclist a speedy recovery (no pun intended) and that the van driver learns his lesson from speeding and tailgating on the expressway. There is no reason for drivers to ever be this reckless while on the road and I sure do hope that he gets his due comeuppance from the TP.   ------------ Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

Red light stop, green light go: These two cyclists won't even make it past the first round of The Squid Game

The age-old, pressing issue of Motorists vs Cyclists never seem to cease. The influx of interest in cycling resulted in many people adopting cycling as a mode of transport. Coupled with the lack of awareness and education of road safety, and knowledge, potential issues among cyclists themselves will inevitably arise. Take a look at this short clip: What Happened?  This incident happened at Punggol Central. Although it was a red light signal for pedestrians, two cyclists flout traffic rules and blatantly cycle across a pedestrian crossing. Despite knowing that the camcar was about to perform a discretionary turn, these errant cyclists still decided to perform this absurd and dangerous act. The two cyclists ended up almost colliding with each other, causing the elderly cyclist to fall. They obviously have no regard for safety rules, lest their safety.  From their actions, I am certain that it is not their first time flouting red light signals or traffic rules in general as cyclists. Is it really worth endangering your life over that mere seconds spent waiting for the light to turn green? Red Light Go, Green Light Stop Familiar with the latest Netflix craze – Squid Game?  If you are, then you must be familiar with the first game: Red Light, Green Light. If you aren't, read more about the game below: Well, I am 101% certain these two cyclists won't make it past Game #1 of the Squid Games.  Newly Recommended Road Cycling Rules Just last week, a government panel – The Active Mobility Advisory Panel (AMAP), proposed a set of recommendations to review regulations to enhance road safety.  Considering this incident, would it be wise for cyclists to practice a safe passing distance as well? Would third-party insurance be effective at all? I will let you be the judge of the newly proposed recommendations' effectiveness.  Do check out the article below to read more on AMAP's proposed recommendations: Netizens' Comments You sohai, it's sohai.  It's hard to advocate a safe road culture for all when such errant riders have minimal regard for their personal safety.  LOL.      --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

Newly recommended road cycling rules — Do they actually matter?

The Review On 1 October 2021, a government panel, Active Mobility Advisory Panel (AMAP), has produced a set of recommendations to review regulations to enhance road safety.   The recommendations consist of the following rules and guidelines:  To continue allowing cyclists to ride abreast in a maximum of 2 on roads with two or more lanes.  Introduce a rule for on-road cycling groups, for them to limit their group length to 5 bicycles. Essentially, this means a limit of five cyclists in a single file or ten cyclists when riding abreast.   Introduce a guideline to ensure a safe distance of 2 lamp posts (30 metres) between riding groups.  Introduce a guideline in the Highway Code and driving test handbooks that require motorists to have a minimum passing distance of 1.5 metres when passing cyclists.   Highly encourage cyclists to sign up for third-party liability insurance. When involved in an accident, third-party insurance will compensate for victims and protect cyclists from potentially expensive claims.  Source: https://www.lta.gov.sg/content/dam/ltagov/getting_around/active_mobility/rules_public_education/rules_code_of_conduct/pdf/2021-10_amap_report_for_the_review_of_on-road_safety.pdf My Two Cents After reading the recommended rules and guidelines, certain thoughts came to my mind:  For recommendations 1 – 3, is there a point behind it? After all, what is the point if cyclists don’t adhere to these recommendations? Unless they are caught in the act of flouting these rules and guidelines, matters will remain the status quo. Besides, recommendations 1 – 3 will only be effective when proper enforcement is present. And this, unfortunately, is a hard nut to crack.   Recommendation 4 will be only and most effective when implemented – but why? Well, it is pretty simple. It is easier to take enforcement actions against motorists than cyclists, as motorists must be licensed and officially registered with government bodies. Hence, it makes motorists more accountable for any actions committed by them.   Lastly, recommendation 5 is the most perplexing recommendation of them all.  Considering a significant number of citizens have no insurance coverage, the tendency to take up third-party liability insurance for cycling is going to be pretty damn low too. Conclusion   Nothing spells ineffectiveness more than this proposed set of recommendations, which practically solves none of the issues at hand. Instead, the proposed recommendation aims to tackle every other matter, except that one crucial matter – Holding cyclists accountable for their actions.  Netizens' Comments This basically summarises all the issues at hand.     --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.
