"What is the best car you've driven so far?" I always get asked this question whenever I am engaged in a conversation with my relatives or friends.

 

Well, as a rookie in the industry, I haven't had the chance to try as many as other seniors have. My age notwithstanding.

 

But what I can say for sure is that I don't have an absolute answer to the question but if you're interested, here is my two cents' worth.

 

Firstly, every single car out there has its pros and cons, and in my dictionary, there is only near perfect. Same goes for us humans.

 

And then it boils down to the personal preference about a car. You may love a Toyota 86 to bits, however, your other half may not like it because of the frequent 'get out to let others in' courtesy.

 

Last but not least, on this hot and sunny island of ours, every single thing is helluva expensive. No, hold a second. Buying a car here is helluva expensive - if it ain't for the price, I may have gotten a wee bit nearer to having answered the question.

 

Cars aside, one vehicle that I actually enjoy driving is a Suzuki Every. It is such an honest vehicle; it is just what it is - a van.

 

Yes, the driveability may be like crap and powering it is only a mere 659cc engine but, seriously, who cares about the performance when all you need is a vehicle that allows you to get from point A to point B in a fuss-free manner?

 

Heading to IKEA? No problem too, this 'kei' car can haul your furniture as easy as 1, 2, 3.

 

Best of all, its compact size allows you to access cramped places easily, which is really common on this tiny red dot we call home.

 

So what's the best car I've driven thus far again?

Just about every car you drive will recalibrate your expectation of what a good car is. And that's fine to learn from. But should we trust that a Toyota Camry is the most comfortable car ever if you've never sampled the ride quality of a Rolls?

 

You don't care about performance - I do. Not everyone has the buying power of a K-class minivan. But don't go assuming that everyone's like you, in fact you are the minority.

 

If you rate your van against a Ferrari on the Ikea run, the Ferrari fails miserably. On that note would you say that the van is a better car than the Ferrari? I hope not.

 

What is MyCarForum doing hiring kids to write reviews an columns? Are they cheaper - because they sure as hell aren't better.

The question "What is the best car I've driven so far?" is not suited for you. It's like asking a boy whose puberty just begin "What women have you tasted so far?".

Do not get me wrong. I'm not mocking you but it's a reminder that young rookies in Sgp, nobody will trust you or your driving to let you have a go in their cars. That's why car insurance premiums for young drivers are so high. Unless you have a rich father or rich uncle, you will continue to ask yourself lots of silly question. Just tell people the truth. You are not there yet to answer this question. Nothing to be shameful about.

We're sure Macrosszero has tried Rolls and Ferrari. And we salute him for that. But what is MyCarForum doing entertaining keyboard warriors like him? Can we meet these warriors - because they sure as hell aren't entertaining.

We may not know who Macrosszero is, but he puts forth a very strong argument. And also, I feel this columnist Regan Ong is not ready to be a automotive journalist, or a journalist for that matter. Go back to school.

    Do you know who you are? Try this the next time you get a parking ticket!

    From this video, one of the conclusions we can draw from it is when you have just been given a ticket by the parking officer, threatening him on whether he knows who you are or not isn't going to help you get out of trouble. As seen on SG Road Vigilante's recent post on 23rd of September 2020, the offender has just gotten a parking ticket along Sturdee Road North and can be seen trying to video down the whole confrontation with the officer who just gave him a ticket. Obviously not that good at redeeming himself, the owner of the video tries to 'put pressure' on the officer by asking him whether 'he knows who he is?' and claiming that the officer is less clear about the laws than him. If you are curious as to what happens next, catch the video below and let us know how you would react if you happen to be in such a situation.

    Weird things are happening in Yishun again!

    Weird things are happening in Yishun again. To be precise, at Blk 509B Yishun Ave 4 on the 20th July.  For no apparent reason, this guy in orange simply falls down on his own as 'invisible forces' make him lose his balance.
    Also seen on SG Road Vigilante and circling around in many whatsapp group chat, this is clip is the perfect antidote for a boring and sleepy Monday. This should be a case of the guy wanting to try out an 'insurance scam' where by the pedestrian attempts to get hit by a moving car before proceeding to get compensation from the driver's insurance company.  Unfortunately for the guy in orange, he looks quite silly 'falling' twice and with the driver's in-car camera showing clearly no signs of impact, his attempt is bound to fail. Check out what netizens have to say...

    Traffic dispute convinces many that cyclists are getting out of hand

    Are cyclists getting out of hand these days?  We'd say so as more and more videos of cyclists ignoring traffic rules and getting angry with other road users have been surfacing. It doesn't help as COVID has encouraged more people to workout, with cycling fast becoming one of the more popular choices/excuses to get out of the house. According to SG Road Vigilante, this incident between 2 cyclists and the camera car happened on 30th August 2020 at 17:15 along east coast road. As the road is a single lane road, SGRV claims that the camera car wanted to overtake and horned at the cyclists that he/she is proceeding with an overtaking maneuver. Unfortunately, the cyclist wasn't happy and started some 'ah-beng taunting' actions. Do you think the cyclists in the videos are self-entitled? Or do you reckon the driver should have just queued up and drove slowly behind them? Let us know!

    Law-breaking cyclists get into chain collision!

    We wonder if these group of cyclists are aware that the COVID-19 pandemic is still ongoing when they ride in such a large group.. Posted by the people from SG Road Vigilante on 7th of Aug 2020 is a video of a large group of cyclist riding together seriously before a crash causes a chain collision of bicycles. Some of us might find the accident funny while some would be shocked at how dangerous riding on the road could be. We just hope that everyone recovers well from their fall. Of course, such a post will put netizens into a commenting frenzy where everyone will be slamming the cyclists for road-hogging and riding in a group of more than five.  Do you feel that these large gatherings should be stopped? Or do you feel that more and more cyclists are taking advantage of our roads? Let us know...
