blogentry-114362-0-85390200-1505967207_thumb.jpgMichael Schumacher could be taken to the US for specialist treatment after his catastrophic ski crash. The F1 legend's medical condition has been kept a closely-guarded secret in recent years. The 48-year-old's family and close advisers have imposed a strict media blackout on details of Schumacher's health.

 

He suffered serious brain damage after the ski crash in 2013. But now German magazine Bravo reports that Schumacher is "weak" and relatives are considering a move to the US. The seven-time champion has a cattle ranch in Dallas, Texas, and a brain specialist based nearby may be able to offer a breakthrough.

 

Dr Meeks said: "We have extensive experience with trauma patients. "There is probably no clinic in Europe that handles as many cases as we do."

He was airlifted to Grenoble Hospital requiring 'immediate neurosurgical intervention' and underwent two life-saving operations.

 

Schumacher remained in a coma, with doctors describing his condition as 'extremely serious' the day after his admission. News became scarce after the immediate aftermath of the accident, with the Schumacher family's next statement coming in April 2014.

 

They said the former F1 champ had shown 'moments of consciousness and awakening'. Three months followed before it was released that Schumacher was no longer in a coma and had left Grenoble Hospital.

 

It was confirmed three months after that that Schumacher had been transferred from Lausanne Hospital to the family home on the shores of Lake Geneva.

    PHV drivers brought the heat up on pre-cooling off day

    As everyone should know, today, 9th of July 2020 is the cooling off day for GE2020 and it so happened that the weather is pretty cool after the morning downpour.  That said, things were not so cool for these two Private Hire drivers yesterday.  As seen on Sg Road Vigilante, a video of two PHV drivers turning the heat up (for the wrong reasons) has been spotted.  No one knows what they they were fighting for but we can almost safely assume it is due to one of them not giving way to the other or something similar like that at this NEX taxi stand in Serangoon. It then seemed like a causally-dressed (weird) taxi driver tried to stop them. Kudos for him. What really amused us was the replies in the comments section. Check them out!

    Kudos to our Special Operation Command for stopping this cyclist!

    Our Circuit Breaker measures sure bring up quite a few weird incidents. I mean why would you even cycle in an expressway tunnel? As seen on ROAD.sg's website, it did seemed like someone cycled along our Marina Coastal Expressway on the 9th of April and was stopped by a Special Operation Command Police vehicle. As uncommon as it is to see a cyclist on an expressway, it is even rarer to see someone from the SOC stop a traffic offender as it is not part of their job scope. Kudos to the fellas for going the extra mile!  Even netizens on the facebook page were also grateful to police force! videoplayback.mp4

    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

    This i30 driver reckons he is one of Osaka's street racers!

    This video has gone viral among the car enthusiasts community in Singapore.  A white Hyundai i30 has been filmed by the camera car's passenger showing the Korean car cutting across lanes recklessly with signaling along the SLE. Obviously trying to taunt or block the camera car (an Audi), we have no idea what is the story behind this incident as the video does not come with any audio. The video lasts for 30 seconds and could well have been going on for sometime. We hope nothing bad comes out of this road rage incident. P.S. Dear Hyundai driver, maybe you should watch less video clips on Youtube about Osaka's infamous street racers... ef6b0a0d-6339-4962-9dda-e287bb98811c.MP4
