blogentry-133713-0-80496300-1425980951_thumb.jpgI am sure most of us car nuts enjoy going across the causeway for a spin. And usually, that spin is likely to be a brisk one. Bad news for those who actually do, because according to paultan.org, the government is mulling over the idea of installing speed limiting device in all vehicles.

 

The vehicles subjected to the 110km/h speed limiting includes all passenger cars, motorcycles and commercial vehicles. Emergency vehicles and other law enforcement vehicles would be exempted from the speed limiting.

 

This is because the number of road accidents and fatalities have been on the rise. According to Deputy Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation Datuk Dr Abu Bakar Mohamad Diah, using a speed limiting device to stop speedsters 'would be a suitable method to reduce road accidents'.

 

He added that if enforced, it would put Malaysia on the map as the first country in the world to limit vehicle speed car based on speed limits in accordance with national law too.

 

While there are no details on how it would affect Singapore cars, let's hope this does not turn into reality!

Wonderful news. That way, only Singapore cars will be the ones speeding. That's fine, because we're the only ones being pulled over and extorted anyway, speeding or not! :)

Sounds like a way for cronies to make money only lor.

 

And then workshops also make money selling ways to bypass device.

 

Then motorist can appeal fine/summon saying device shouldn't allow them to speed.

 

 

Win-Win-Win situation! Malaysia BOLEH!

The way these clowns drive on the North South Highway, I am actually surprised that not more people die.

    Traffic Police bike gets into accident while chasing offender

    Now this is not something the residents of Ang Mo Kio get to see everyday! A Traffic Police officer has apparently skidded on the wet floor and crashed his Yamaha bike at the lift lobby of Block 619 Ang Mo Kio. As reported by SG Road vigilante, the incident happened on 27 May 2020 and eye witnesses claim that the officer was trying to chase another motorbike through the void deck when the police officer lost control and hit the wall. The comments by netizens were generally supportive of the officer going all the way in the fight for justice, with the usual few negative views here and there.

    Singer rants on Facebook about cars making "loud explosive noise"

    A popular local Singer/Songwriter has taken to her facebook page to rant about cars making loud explosive noises where she lives. 1 bang 2.mp4 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?

    BMW E34 and dashcam driver narrowly escape death with lightning-quick reflexes

    A video of two drivers speeding and almost crashing to their deaths seems to be circulating on social media, Whatsapp groups and Telegram chats. Here's the link to the 14-second video.   They almost died In the video, you can see both the BMW and dashcam driver take evasive action to avoid a head-on collision with a stationary vehicle on lane 1 (rightmost lane). If they had crashed, based on how fast they were going past other cars on the road, they would have died.  Online Chatter - Pro or lucky? I'm not even sure whether to be horrified or impressed by the display of lightning quick reflexes in the video. Netizens seem to be leaning more towards impressed. Indeed. They are waiting.         

    Two jokers trick the internet into thinking their Fiat Doblo did 200km/h

    In case you're wondering what a Fiat Doblo looks like. It's a goods vehicle. Why is this information important for this story? Take a look at this latest viral video But, I don’t understand Malay! Don't worry! We translated the whole conversation for you thanks to my malay colleagues!  Sounds similar? I think they made this video in response to another video of two guys doing 180km/hr on the expressway in a Suzuki Swift Sport. We wrote an article about that just yesterday btw (blatant backlinking opportunities should not be wasted). You may click the link below to check the story out. https://www.mycarforum.com/blogs/entry/6008-someone-is-keen-to-show-that-their-swift-sport-can-do-180kmh-on-the-cte/ On top of that, the person who uploaded the video included this in the caption It's a good laugh If you didn't realise, they weren't actually speeding. The speedometer of the vehicle seems to be faulty, and these two funny guys thought that they could have a bit of fun with it. The driver's laughter made me lol more than once. That’s for sure. Don't need call polis please and thank you!
