    Mitsubishi Evo 10 performs a timely pop and bang which literally smoked a salty cam car driver

    In the public's eyes, most often confuse/label Japanese sports cars as an 'Ah beng' car or an ordinary car that has been 'zhng-ed'. In Singapore, it is common for these cars to get hated by the public. Here's one such example: What Happened? In a user-submitted video, the driver/passenger of the cam car can be heard making some remarks about the blue Mitsubishi Evolution X in front of it. The remarks included a sarcastic attempt to mimic the Evo X's noise. Moments later, as the Evo X enters an expressway, it performs a quick launch, resulting in pops and bangs. Thick black smoke and flames could also be seen shooting out of its exhaust.  I must say that the 'smokescreen' was a rather timely response to the complaints coming from the cam car.  Illegally Modified? This might be the first question that pops into your mind for the uninitiated. However, the black smoke, flames, pops and bangs produced from the Mitsubishi Evolution X are due to the anti-lag system installed in the car.  Therefore, it is highly unlikely that the Mitsubishi Evolution X was illegally modified. However, there is still a chance that the car is 'illegally modified' if LTA thoroughly inspects the car.  For all you know, it could be labelled as 'illegally modified' due to heavily tinted windows.  Netizens' Comments Must be because cam car's first time experiencing pops and bangs.  NGL, Evo X is a nice car😍 Every day we learn something new.      ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    An obnoxious SG 'Karen' and her husband attempts to run down a security officer with their Bentley

    First of all, let's define the term 'Karen'. According to Wikipedia, 'Karen' is defined as: Watch this video to catch Singapore's very own Karen and her husband in action: What Happened? This incident occurred at Red Swastika School, supposedly one of Singapore's "branded" Primary schools. Two security officers attempted to stop a Bentley from entering the school as it did not have a valid vehicle label. Unhappy at how the Bentley was refused access into the school, the female passenger of the Bentley pulled the most basic 'Karen' move ever. She immediately got out of the car and whipped out her phone to film the school's front gate and two security officers.  Moments later, she hopped back into the passenger seat of the Bentley. And this was when matters escalated. The Bentley driver, supposedly the husband of 'Karen', started driving the car into the school in an attempt to get both security officers out of the way. However, the security officer in the luminous green vest stood firm in front of the Bentley to prevent it from entering the school, risking his life in the process.  This caused the security officer to stumble back a few steps before the Bentley came to a halt.  Subsequently, the security officer could be seen bending down and holding his knees in discomfort.  Not Caught On Film After the entire escapade, a staff from Red Swastika School granted access to the Bentley for it to enter the school.  Later on, the Bentley couple was spotted alighting the kid inside the school's drop-off point. Was it necessary that you got out of your way to cause a traffic jam and risk the lives of others just to alight your kid inside the school's compound? Geez, how embarrassing for the kid. No Record Found After doing some poking around, it turns out that the Bentley's number plate does not exist in LTA's record.   MMM...sus much? What do you guys think of this? Instantaneously, this reminded me of the road raging Audi driver incident (Refer below), where a car workshop gave the driver a wrongly printed number plate.  I am not surprised if this turns out to be the case for the Bentley too.  The Minister has spoken! UPDATE: 11/1/22, 3:55PM A recent user-submitted footage revealed the actual reason for preventing the Bentley from entering Red Swastika School. The Bentley driver apparently "cut queue" to turn into the school and attempted to enter the school by driving against the flow of traffic.  Watch the video here: UPDATE: 11/1/22, 6:55PM The Bentley driver has been arrested. Netizens' Comments My man here straight up tagged the Minster of Education🙌🙌🙌 Actions must be taken against this outrageous Bentley driver!😡 Kudos to you, security uncle! Hope you are alright.     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    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.

    This Hyundai driver's sluggish lane change caused an unnecessary chain collision

    As drivers, I am sure we have met our fair share of annoying drivers on the road who switches between lanes either without due care or simply because of their indecisiveness.  Here's a perfect example of an annoying driver that falls in both of these categories: Where And Who Were Involved? The accident happened along Ang Mo Kio Ave 10, just across Townsville Primary School.  In total, two cars (a BMW X5 and a Hyundai Avante) and one motorcycle were involved in the accident.  What Happened? Initially, the Hyundai Avante was travelling on the left-turn only lane. It then changed to the next lane, to be positioned right in front of the cam car.  Wanting to filter left towards Bishan Road, the Hyundai driver decided to change back to the left-turn only lane after several cars passed by it. For unknown reasons, the Hyundai driver took his own sweet time to complete his lane change, and this was where tragedy struck.  The BMW X5 who was travelling at a relatively fast speed, could not stop in time, causing it to smash into the side of the Hyundai Avante.  Following this, a motorcycle travelling directly behind the BMW X5 also could not react in time, causing it to smash headfirst into the rear of the BMW SUV, literally. Looking at the image above, can I say that all the lane switching involved was entirely uncalled for? Regardless of which lane the Hyundai was in, he could eventually turn left if he had the patience. Kudos To The Biker Bro Despite receiving the brunt of the impact from rear-ending the BMW, the motorcyclist made an effort to check on the other parties involved in the chain collision. Good on him for that! Who's At Fault? This accident will undoubtedly pose a challenging case for the insurance companies involved to determine the party/parties at fault.  Reading the comments, the public had mixed opinions on the party at fault, which included: (a) The Hyundai was at fault;  (b) The BMW was at fault; (c) Both the Hyundai and BMW were at fault; and (d) All parties involved were at fault. What do you think? All matters aside, regardless of who is at fault, I wish all the parties involved a speedy recovery! Netizens' Comments This stereotyping is somehow relatable. Let this be a lesson learned.  What a troll!     ========= Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA
