Bad luck or pothole? Big trailer ended up being flipped onto its side at West Coast heading towards AYE

Oh no! With another day in Singapore, yet another unfortunate traffic incident... This time, taking place at this West Coast junction.  From here, we see a police car parked behind the trailer that is lying helplessly on its side as the surrounding traffic mills past, keeping a wide berth away from the accident area, cordoned off by orange cones. 291181420_1089185911999828_7590787707057688719_n.mp4 The trailer cuts a rather lonely, hulking silhouette with the space around it.

Car sharing Getgo vehicle blatantly ignored the red light and hit a taxi

A common car-sharing Getgo vehicle gets caught on camera blatantly ignoring the existence of the red traffic light. Strange since this seems like the fundamental essentials of driving theory.  This resulted in the vehicle side sweeping an oncoming taxi and, hitting into it and resulted in debris inconveniently left on the road.  It's extremely fortunate that this blatant disregard for traffic rules did not result in a more severe and damaging accident. It might be wise for Getgo to con

Sparks fly when a GrabFood driver forcefully closes cam car's electric side mirror

Regardless of what car you drive, you will naturally be annoyed when others hit, ding or even touch your car. Do you know what's worse? When someone shoves close your car's electrical side mirror while you are in the car: What Happened? The cam car driver heard a "thud" sound coming from his left side while he was chilling inside his car.  Lo and behold, the GrabFood driver that parked his car next to the cam car driver had forcefully closed the cam car's elect

Perodua Myvi driver with $1530 worth of accrued fines gets caught ignoring road safety to check his phone

A video has been caught of a Malaysian registered Perodua Myvi driver browsing through his phone whilst driving on the road. Watch the video for yourself below  291579884_1105533850174791_7803752459307750143_n.mp4 This kind of irresponsible behaviour could have led to a fatal accident.  Perhaps he needs a more severe punishment to warn him of the consequences of his actions.  According to the Road Traffic Act of 1961, was using a mobile communication device while dr

Blur sotong driver fails to warn other of his stationary vehicle on the PIE, gets rear-ended not once, but twice

Accidents on expressways are common. When that happens, it is essential to turn on your hazard light and put up the reflective triangle sign to warn other motorists of the accident that is obstructing the road.  Otherwise, this may happen:   What Happened? The accident above occurred on the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE). A white car with a damaged bonnet that was involved in an accident earlier stopped on lane 2 of the expressway.

5 reasons why car leasing is becoming more popular

In the face of rising COE premiums and shifting perceptions of car ownership, we take a look at BMW Flow to understand the allure of leasing. Spurred both by a hunger for more flexibility, and the rise of on-demand mobility options, the idea of locking oneself down over a decade with a single car is likely to make one think twice nowadays. In Singapore specifically, an added dimension of complexity comes into play due to the taxes. This is especially pronounced now that the COE quota i

Attention all cyclists! Vehicles with COE are not the only ones with road responsibility

A video was recorded of a cyclist recklessly endangering his own life by cutting across the lane without checking his blindspot.  It resulted in him splitting lanes and almost colliding with the camcar behind him, endangering both his own life and risking damage to the vehicle.  Watch the video for yourself below  290811300_605632330725223_3168181024453944356_n.mp4 Clearly this cyclist is not ‘kiasi’, or as a translation for non-Singaporean folk, ‘afraid to die’.

Traffic Police impounds a Ferrari 458 with expired road tax and arrests the driver in broad daylight

Oftentimes when we see a supercar such as a Ferrari, Lamborghini or McLaren, we would wish to be in their position and understand how it is like to drive such a flashy and sporty car. However, I, for one, would not wish to be in the position of this particular Ferrari driver. Watch it here: What Happened? The incident above occurred at an open-air carpark at North Bridge Road Market Food Centre. Police officers and Traffic police officers arrested the driver of

Salty taxi driver takes getting cut off very personally and breaks the law to inflate his ego

Cam car has recorded a taxi speeding up while trying to switch lanes. The taxi also drove along the road shoulder and performed brake checks on the cam car. Are all these really worth the hassle and risking your safety over? It seems more like pettiness and insane behaviour to me.  Watch the video for yourself below: 290217725_120483413866324_829176470840012533_n.mp4 Road courtesy is basic decency. It does not only safeguard your own safety, but others as well. And in the case of

Changi General Hospital makes the wrong call about an accident between a Porsche and a motorcycle

A netizen made a public claim on Facebook about Changi General Hospital (CGH) making a false statement in his medical report in an accident involving him and a Porsche 911 Carrera. In the public post, the netizen claims that CGH stated in the medical report that the motorcyclist (the netizen) skidded and collided with a car (The Porsche 911 Carrera). Read his post here: However, in the dashcam footage provided by the netizen, it showed otherwise.  Watch it here: 

“Act Satki” cyclists block vehicles and hog the lane at Telok Blangah at night

Time and time again, we hear of the age-old strife and conflict that other road users have with cyclists, who are colloquially referred to as “kings of the road” (sarcasm, by the way!) or acting as if they are riding on their “grandfather’s road” ... But this video really shows it all--- walao eh! I wasn’t there to see it in person, but had I been, I would have been fuming as well. The whole scene is one of immense inconsideration and recklessness. You can see what I mean in this video

Singapore registered Toyota Voxy pisses off a Malaysian Van and gets rammed in the rear… hard

TL;DR – A Toyota Voxy with Singaporean plates plays the brake check game and blocks a Malaysian Van at the causeway checkpoint (Malaysian side) and ends up getting intentionally rammed in the rear.   It’s common sense to behave yourself when you’re in someone else’s territory. But apparently, this Voxy driver did not get the memo.   The Story According to the caption of the video, The Voxy was playing the braking game and blocking the Malaysian Van.

Alamak! Motorcyclist hits wooden block on road and gets thrown off by impact

Yesterday morning on the busy Seletar Expressway, a lone motorcyclist (and those around him) got the biggest shock of his life when he drove over a wooden block on the road. Due to the impact with the object, he then lost control of his bike, swerving like 'siao' until he was tossed onto the floor, with a hard landing. Ouch! As shown in the video, readers can see the obstacle was not that visible from far away. The video can be seen here The poor motorcyclist must hav

'Ah Seah Kia' takes daddy's BMW 523i out to race in KPE, gets jail, fine and suspension

The story is that an ‘Ah Seah Kia’ used his dad’s BMW to race along the KPE and he got caught For anyone wondering what an ‘Ah Seah Kia’ is, it essentially means a ‘rich man’s offspring’, often also referred to as 富二代 (fu er dai) .  In this story, it’s basically  a spoiled child using his daddy’s money for kicks on the highway Watch the video for yourself below  Too Fast, Too Furious Caught speeding at 154km/h (almost twice the prescribed speed limit along the KPE),

Volvo XC40 driver mounts kerb and performs a 5-point turn to get out of a heavy jam at Woodlands checkpoint

Most people in Singapore purchase an SUV for its spacious body rather than its utility.  And that makes sense as it is almost impossible to put an SUV to the test in a city environment such as Singapore.  However, a particular Volvo driver did just that.  Watch it here: What Happened? A recent Channel News Asia news article reported that "Heavy traffic through Woodlands and Tuas Checkpoints expected for the rest of June: ICA". And truth be told, that was e

Group of irresponsible cyclists take up all 3 lanes on West Coast highway

Some cyclists were caught cycling irresponsibly on the West Coast Highway, even going as far as to take up all three lanes of the highway. It almost seems like they have a death wish by treating road safety like a joke.  Watch the video for yourself below  Guidelines for Cyclists LTA guidelines clearly state that cyclists on the road must adhere to on-road safety guidelines by NOT cycling on expressways, road tunnels as well as selected viaducts. They also must keep

'Bodoh Kambing' Honda Civic driver reverses into a stationary motorcycle at a carpark gantry

The number 1 rule before reversing your car is to always check clear your rear and blindspots before proceeding.  Lazy to do so? Then get yourself a rear reverse camera, or you will be like this guy: IMG_7646.MP4 What Happened? I am sure we have all been stuck at the gantry for some reasons (Eg. Insufficient funds in cashcard, problem detecting your car's IU). And that was what happened to this particular Honda Civic driver - he got stuck at the carpark gantry. Afte

Netizens divided over cause of blame for motorcyclist’s accident

A Mazda driver tries for a lane change that did not end well. The incoming motorcyclist skidded off course and fell down at the side of the road. Onlookers came on to assist the motorcyclist but the Mazda driver had driven off without a second word.  The news was that the rider had suffered minor injuries and abrasions on his leg.

'Chiobu' sits on the centre console while taking a joyride around Sentosa in a Mazda MX-5

One thing that people are exceptionally fond of doing these days is posting EVERYTHING on social media. Unfortunately, this includes doing dumb things, filming it and posting it online for the world to see (Yes, it happens even if your account is private😞 IMG_7599.MP4 What Happened?  In the short video, a 'chiobu' was filming herself and her two friends seated inside a Mazda MX-5.

Mitsubishi Lancer tailgates a car to evade car park fees at Ang Mo Kio

Mitsubishi Lancer’s desire for a petty amount of car park fee evasion places both vehicles in an increased risk of a potential accident. Vehicle tries to evade parking fees by tailgating the camcar vehicle at the car park exit.  Pretty ridiculous act for a small car park fee, those who can’t afford to drive should just stay at home.  Watch the video for yourself below Tailgating is a dangerous habit of driving too closely to the vehicle in front.  Though t

Mazda CX-5 casually drives against traffic with not a care in the world

A Mazda CX-5 seems to be driving against the flow of traffic and was caught by the camera.  Watch the video for yourself below  288283744_155007197097876_6115014158886073324_n.mp4 The bike was incredibly fortunate not to crash into the vehicle and result in a potentially fatal accident due to some last minute braking.  According to motorist.sg, driving against the flow of traffic can often warrant you a total of 6 Demerit points, as well as a fine of from $200 to $250 de

And for this group of motorists, they decided to pull a stunt to save the extra dollar: What Happened?
