Here's a perfect example of how public shaming can come and bite you in the ass.
In a recent video uploaded on Singapore Incidents' YouTube channel, an angry man chases down and confronts a DHL Delivery driver because the DHL driver allegedly pointed the middle finger at him.
Here's the video if you haven't already seen it.
In the video, the incident begins along the KPE when the DHL van does an e-brake in front of our angry man, who is driving behind the DHL van.
Angry man proceeds to sound his displeasure with a couple of honks. Ideally, this should be the end of the story for most people. But, no. The angry man then proceeds to chase the DHL van like some road vigilante.
As soon as angry man's car is parallel to the DHL van, we hear some cries of displeasure before he grabs his mobile device* (which was recording the whole incident) to capture DHL driver's face on video.
*This is a chargeable offence by the way
The video cuts off and jumps to the DHL driver sitting on the floor and speaking in dialect (Hokkien I think?) trying to justify his actions.
It's not clear how they ended up out of their vehicles.
Angry man then demands an apology from the DHL driver for pointing the middle finger at him. We think the finger-pointing might have happened when both their vehicles were parallel to one another (in the camera's blind spot).
The DHL driver humbles himself and apologises in both Hokkien and English. But, angry man can't let sleeping dogs lie and submitted this video to shame the DHL driver.
What the people say
He should have just let it go after the apology and maybe he thought netizens would rally behind him. But, boy oh boy, was he wrong.
What do you think?
A recent Roads.sg video of two men using super unorthodox techniques to fill up a gas tank has caught the attention of many Singaporeans.
At the time of writing this article, the post has since garnered over 100 comments (I’ll share some at the end of this article) which are pretty one-sided.
Here’s the video if you haven’t already seen it. If you have, watch it again. It' bloody hilarious!

According to the Roads.sg video description, this incident occurred across the causeway.

The owner of what we believe to be a 2016 Toyota Vios, is definitely a Singaporean. I can say this with assurance because I've pumped petrol in J.B. before and you only ever see Singaporeans do stupid shit like this while Malaysians laugh at us.
The back of the car looks similar!
Do you save money in the end?
If you're not too familiar with what is going on, the logic is simple. Bubbles are formed when you pump petrol in your car and these bubbles take up precious space in your fuel tank that could go to more fuel. Therefore, if you shake your car, the bubbles will dissipate, allowing you to get more petrol and more savings.
Alright, you might save a couple of bucks, but the repercussions don't make sense to me.
Not worth it
You will eventually wreck your rear suspension which is not cheap to repair.
You look like an idiot
You give Singaporeans a bad name
You will kena caught on video like this guy and, everyone will know you for the wrong reasons
What the people say
The answer is nothing. You saved nothing.
Pretty sure he is.

That’s funny af.
Have you ever watched a car accident video and told yourself in your head that “heng ah, it wasn’t me or someone I know”?
I guess it’s human nature. The truth of the matter is – Even if you’re the safest driver in the world, all it takes is just one idiot driver to mess it up for you. So what happens if it happens to you or someone within your social circle? Read on to find out.
Sometime in the evening yesterday, 28th November 2019, I received a message from one of my closest friends. It was an image of his heavily damaged Honda Freed.
That’s how heavily damaged it was.
It was a pretty bone-chilling sight, but the fact that he was messaging me meant that he was fine, so that was a relief.
Eventually, he sent over the video footage of the accident. The video includes both the rear and dashcam footage.
In the video, my friend, the Freed Driver, let’s call him Jeff, for privacy sake, is filtering into an expressway. A lorry follows suit, loses control and charges straight into the back of the Freed, shattering the glass on the rear windscreen. Also, that's a damn loud bang.
In the car
There’s no in-car footage, but you can hear a brief exchange of conversations between three people in the car – Jeff and his two passengers.
Jeff and the other guy were worried about whether anyone was injured, but the lady, presumably in shock, could only think of one thing.
She was carrying Thanksgiving potluck food with her when the crash happened, and you can hear her go “Oh no! The gravy casserole’s everywhere!”

This is what Casserole looks like.
Anyhoo, I’m glad all parties are fine.
RIP Casserole. You perished so that others could live. The best Thanksgiving dish yet.
A video submitted to Singapore Reckless Drivers and circulating on Facebook depicts an accident that took place along the PIE towards BKE after Steven Road exit around 9:24 am on 20 January 2020.
In the video, you can clearly see that the BMW abruptly cut the Trans-Cab's lane.
And then, this typical BMW driver decided to hit the brake to show his macho-ness.
And due to some ego issues with the cab driver, they bang on each other.
Here's the full video.
Let this serve as a gentle reminder to all drivers out here! Please drive graciously this Chinese New Year! Don't risk you and your passenger over such trivial disputes.
Anyway, there is a reason why BMW drivers are hated so much.
Drive safe BMWs! 🙂
