Nothing new here. This is just another case of street racers causing trouble to the general road users.
Shared among group chats in Whatsapp is a series of videos that show a Volkswagen Golf GTI mk5 owner being bombarded with hokkien vulgarities. No, we won't be translating what those words mean in case you are wondering...
After some digging, we found out that the GTI driver who was being shouted at, and a Mitsubishi Evo X were zipping left and right through traffic along CTE on 9 Jul 2020 before causing a Toyota Hiace to crash and flip sideways into the bushes at the left side of the highway.
We could see that the GTI sustained some damage to its front left hence the driver stopped. We assumed the Evo X driver did not stop and continued on its way.
This is not the first time the GTI owner has been caught driving recklessly as you can see from the video above by ROADS.sg.
Of course neitzens on facebook are bashing the reckless drivers as we can see from Thelocalsociety's FB page. What are your thoughts on such drivers? Let us know!
If there's something strange in the neighbourhood, who you gonna call?
If there's something unbearable like the loud exhaust from an RX-8 (I think it’s an RX-8), who you gonna call?
LTA takes your complaints seriously
In a post uploaded on SG Road Vigilante, a video and various images of 2 LTA officers checking out the undercarriage of an RX-8 has gone viral.
Here's the link to the long video (might take awhile to load because it’s 4mins+ long, I suggest skimming through the video).
The story behind this
Apparently, a "pek cek" (exasperated) neighbour could not take the sound of the car’s exhaust and made a complaint to LTA.
The neighbour even left a note for the owner of the car.
I can feel the passion from this comment.
Very interesting plot twist. I think the neighbour will have to lan lan suck thumb, wear earplugs.
Err. LTA stands for Land Transport Authority.
If you want to complain
Have a neighbour with too much money and owns a car that disrupts the peace of the neighbourhood?
Call LTA @ 1800 2255 582
The officers will come down to investigate in no time.
We know that all of us should be keeping a safe distance from each other in such times. But we reckon these guys that have been caught on video might have taken it abit too far.
This video, as posted by SG Road Vigilante, shows a slow moving camera car (claimed to be doing 80km/h but it looks more like 60km/h to us) that was traveling on KPE towards TPE chancing upon a bunch or cars that were abit too keen to distance themselves from any traffic around them.
Apparently this happened on the wee hours of 16th May morning and from what we can gather, the lead car is a R34 Nissan Skyline that zoomed past the camera car at a speed that seemed to double the legal speed limit of the KPE.
Its hard to tell from the video but other than the Skyline, we could also identify a few other cars including a Suzuki Swift, a Volkswagen Golf, a Volkswagen Jetta (that might have been the same guy that was charged for organising illegal street racing), a Mitsubishi Evo 9 and a couple of Honda Civics.
Interestingly, most of the comments were attacking the camera car for being slow. We wonder why.
On the other hand, there will always be keyboard warriors that come out with weird and silly comments like the example below...
Now this will probably open up a can of worms or two. Who do you reckon is in the wrong? The cyclist or the driver of the Audi?
Filmed by the cyclist on 5th of July along mandai road, a white Audi A1 could be seen pulling out of a small lane and into the path of a cyclist who was doing less than 30km/h on his bike.
According to the source SG Road Vigilante, the guys there reckoned the car did not notice or did not care about the cyclist, barely cutting him off.
What do you guys think?
Was it a close call or an error on the part of the Audi driver? Or was this a simple case of the cyclist letting his ego take control of him and not riding defensively for his own safety?
