With the end of the Circuit Breaker measures, more people have resumed working, creating more traffic on our roads.
But that has not stop this rider from riding recklessly on his Personal Mobility Device (PMD) in Sembawang.
As reported by SG Road Vigilante, the rider can be seen overtaking a car that is moving away from the traffic lights before keeping up to speed with it.
In fact, the video which was shot on the 4th of June, showed the rider overtaking a motorcycle in the next lane.
Judging from the 20 seconds plus clip, we reckon he could have been doing twice the legal speed limit of PMDs (25km/h).
Naturally, netizens were quick to slam him...
Should we be tolerating this? Watch the video of the PMD rider here!
This accident happened at Changi Village hawker centre carpark.
You can watch the full video of the accident below courtesy of Roads.sg (if you haven't already seen it)
Honda Stream exits the carpark and attempts to make a right turn on a two-way road.
The driver seems oblivious to the fact that there's a stop sign and inches the car onto the main road.
The Honda Steam driver then jams the brakes and in less than a second, what looks like a BMW 6 Series crashes into it. Hard.
Different points of view
If you replay the video, you'll notice that even after the crash, there were no cars that went past on the other side of the road. Meaning, the Honda Stream had more than enough time and space to avoid the accident. Jam break for what?
The driver also ignored the stop sign and failed to do proper checks before moving off.
On the other hand, based on the sheer force of impact, the BMW was going pretty fast too.
What the people say
This sounds legit.
I think it's the Honda Stream driver's fault. The BMW driver sway balls.
Also, there's a lesson here people - Stay the #$%& at home.
A popular local Singer/Songwriter has taken to her facebook page to rant about cars making loud explosive noises where she lives.

In her post, Beverly Morata Grafton pointed out in her post she has been experiencing "exhausts have been popping off like gunshots from 10:30pm and counting. And like every weekend since mid April, they will do so until 4am plus in the morning..."
From her photos and videos that she provided, we gathered that these incidents happenen along Yishun Ave 1, where Sinopec Yishun is situated at. This stretch has a speed camera but car enthusiasts are known to still gun their cars there while heading towards the Yishun Dam.
We will not go into the rest of her post as it can be a bit demeaning and vulgar. For those who are curious, you can view her post below.
In the video that was taken on the 25th of April, we could identify a white Volkswagen Golf accelerating away quickly from the petrol station before letting off some loud bangs, much to the annoyance of the songwriter.
Being a post on the writer's personal page, it was no surprise to find the comments supporting her views.
But what do you guys think? More pops and bangs for everyone? Or should we cooperate for quieter neighbourhoods?
For most owners who are into cars, they will tend to want to meet owners who own the same car/model as themselves. Hence from time to time, we will see many brand/model-based car clubs gather at places like the indoor stadium to chat and get to know more about their cars.
However, we are kind of sure these Volkswagen drivers in the video below won't be friends anytime soon...
Uploaded on ROADS.sg, we can see a Volkswagen Golf coming from the opposite direction before colliding straight on with the camera car (a Volkswagen Jetta).
The accident happened on the morning of 22nd of April at the PIE interchange between Jurong Town Hall Road and Bukit Batok Road.
There were no reports as of press time of what caused the Golf owner to drive into the opposite lane. We hope he did not faint or suffer a heart attack, causing him to lose control of his car.
We did noticed the Scirocco (yes, another Volkswagen) moving away from danger as the Golf came closer. Good reflexes dude.
Maybe if they stayed at home, such things won't have happened...
