A video from @SG Road Vigilante has been circulating showing an Alfa Romeo hitting the road kerb before lurching to the right and flipping over!
The incident happened along the long stretch of road before the State Courts and the Ministry of Manpower.
The car suffered extensive damage throughout this incident.
It is definitely a well-loved car, with one sgCarMart consumer reviewer, Michaelkoh, describing the car as something, "Under the radar gem. (With) Striking design and styling without the excessive price tag. Definitely a top consideration for those looking for cars in the $100-120k range."
After searching on our sgCarMart used car section, we found that there isn't any current pre-owned Giuletta in the market.
If you guys are looking out for an Alfa Romeo Giulietta for your next ride, please keep a lookout for one with an uneven sloping roof and perhaps tyres that are painted with "POTENZA" in white.
A recent video uploaded on SG Road Vigilante of an Audi A4 using red and blue flashing lights to impersonate law enforcement vehicles has gone viral.
The “less than 24-hour old” video has since gone viral and has about 250 shares (as of present).
Here’s the video if you haven’t already seen it

Colours of the law
At about 19 seconds into the video, we see an Audi A4 light up with red and blue flashing lights to overtake or get past the car that was recording the video.
A string of vulgarities can be heard coming from the driver. This is forgivable because ANYBODY would be pissed off if they had to scoot over and give way to a “police vehicle” only to find out that it was all a big fat lie.

The video then shifts to the POV of the dash cam. The footage doesn’t show the red and blue flashing lights tho, but it does show where the incident took place – Terminal 4, Changi Airport.
A weak chase ensues
The driver then decides to chase the Audi down (which was uncalled for but ego probably kicked in).

However, they enter a single merging lane, and there’s a Hyundai Avante between them.
For some reason, the Audi slows down at this single lane for a couple of seconds and the vulgarity spewing driver wastes no time in honking and high beaming to signal his displeasure. It’s a good thing that there was the Hyundai between them though or things might have escalated even further.
The Audi seems like it wanted to stop but decided not to in the end and drove off. Angry driver tails for a while and the video cuts off.
Two wrongs, no right
We did some research and under no circumstance should you be using red and blue flashing lights unless you are from law enforcement.

However, vulgarity spewing driver was obviously looking for a fight of sorts with all that aggression. Just keep calm lah! Why so angry? The video is evidence enough for him to kena by the real police what?
Here’s what Singaporeans think

This guy sounds like he’s got it all figured out.
Spotted on the facebook page 'private hire sg cars/partners - grab, gojek, ryde, tada etc', someone posted a photo of a fender bender between a BMW and a Toyota and we were shocked by how much you can claim if you were involved in such a accident.
This should not cost too much to repair right? Oh wait till you see the final amount submitted by the surveyor.
Yup, you saw it right. The cost of repairs on the BMW E60 5 Series would amount to a staggering $88,000.
To put that into perspective, you can buy yourself a similar BMW coupled with a new 10-year COE and lots of change left for petrol and parking.
Others on the post agreed too that this is one really over inflated amount.
That said, there were some who thought that the is not the actual amount that was asked for...
Unfortunately or fortunately, depending on who's point of view, that is the discharge voucher which you could say is going to be the actual amount paid out.
Of course quite a few felt that this is wrong...
Let us know what you readers think of this in the comments below!
UPDATE: There are some rumors that the discharge form was meant for a Lamborghini Gallardo and not the two cars as pictured above.

Imagine parking your car like you passed your driving test on the first try and then returning to your car with this note on the windscreen -
Did you really park like an idiot? Who left the note? Did they get hurt while getting out of their car from the passenger side?
So many questions.
To the car camera for answers.
Here’s our supposedly wronged and potentially injured party arriving in an MX-5. Very good choice of car.
After 30 seconds of parking and having to exit the car from the passenger side, the lady comes out to take a photo of the “offending” Volvo S60.
She spends about 10 seconds taking photos of the car from multiple angles. We know the Volvo S60 looks good from any angle.
After walking one round inspecting the car like it was at the front gate of an army camp, she leaves her note.
Did the Volvo driver park like an idiot?
Well here’s the tea.
I can hear you screaming: “Lies! The driver probably took this photo at another lot! No way someone will park in that spot! Not even the nimble Miata!”
Here’s the other photo.
At least the Volvo driver was nice enough to mask out the MX-5’s plate.
Here’s the full video uploaded on SG Road Vigilante:
And “Sanctimonious” means “making a show of being morally superior to other people.”
Impressed by how the MX-5 can fit into snug places? Here are some for sale.
Or maybe you're leaning more on the innocent Volvo S60? We've got you covered here too!
