blogentry-129174-0-01578000-1465806545_thumb.jpg In this weekly recap of the UEFA Euro 2016 Tournament brought to you by Official Sponsor Hyundai Motor, we look back at the action that took place over the past week of footballing action.

 

The first match of the tournament was between hosts France and Romania, which proved to be a dramatic affair. France dominated posession in the first half, but struggled to create clear chances. The hosts eventually took the lead in the 57th minute through Olivier Giroud, but that lead did not last long, with Romania's Bogdan Stancu slotting home the penalty kick after Patrice Evra was judged to have brought down Nicolae Stanciu in the penalty box. The game seemed headed for a draw, but Dimitri Payet rifled home a sensational late goal in the 89th minute to secure three points for the host nation.

 

In the other Group A match, Switzerland beat Albernia 1-0. In Group B, Wales topped Slovakia 2-1, while England and Russia played out a 1-1 draw. England seemed bound for victory after a stunning free-kick from Eric Dier, but Russia found an equaliser deep into stoppage time.

 

However, the match in Marseille was marred with scenes of violence, as immediately after the whistle, Russian fans were seen rushing into the English fans. UEFA has announced that it will begin investigation proceedings into the violence between Russia and England fans.

 

In Group C, Germany beat Ukraine 2-0, while Poland emerged 1-0 victors over Northern Ireland. The first Group D match saw Croatia beat Turkey 1-0.

    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.

    Red-light-beating AETOS driver exclaims "Potong Jalan" after getting T-boned by taxi!?

    A video of an accident between an AETOS car and a taxi has become viral. The video was uploaded on Singapore Road Accident's Facebook page less than 13 hours ago and has since garnered 267 shares! If you haven't seen the video, here you go! In the video, the AETOS driver makes a right turn when the right-turn arrow is in the red. The oncoming taxi was unable to brake in time and crashed head-on into the side of the AETOS car. How do we know this? The video is so blurred! It's a simple skill of deduction, my dear Watson. Spot it? Just in case, here's how it should look to make a proper right turn. Now compare it with the screenshot above. Potong Jalan siol A few second after the crash, the AETOS driver starts shouting (to no one in particular): "Potong Jalan siol."   I always thought that this phrase meant "steal" or "walked away". Like "I potong jalan-ed his girlfriend." Ooooh. Thanks, Smart Local! I digress. There was no way the taxi “potong-ed” the AETOS driver because the taxi had the right of way. If you don’t speak Malay, you might have missed this I went through the video with my Malay-speaking colleagues, and they picked up something interesting. At 0.33 – 0.35 ish of the video, the driver says "Kau suroh jalan eh?" - "you said move eh?". This was probably directed to the passenger who told him to go ahead and make the turn at the start of the video. This AETOS driver damn fast to push blame sia.   What the people say Another guy caught it too! And, yes, I hope everyone is fine as well. It was quite a hard crash. Agreed. There’s always a practical commenter. Is it?        

    Honda Stream gets Covid-19 slammed out of it by BMW 6 Series at Changi Village

    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)   What’s happening 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.

    Someone is keen to show that their Swift Sport can do 180km/h on the CTE!

    Now this is not very smart. Thanks to social media apps like Instagram allowing news to spread like bush fire, you now best keep your 'bad' stuff to yourself... Check out this video of some mates videoing themselves going at high speed on our expressways in the wee morning of 10th May 2020. As seen on SG Road Vigilante, this insta story posted by n1zem, shows them going as fast as 180km/h in their Suzuki Swift Sport. Granted, the roads are pretty empty as we are in the midst of the Circuit Breaker period but there is still no reason for going this fast.  For those who are wondering, 'Naked Crew" is a local car group and they can be found on Instagram. As usual, the comments by netizens are harsh and probably a bit hurtful. 1.mp4
