Made by Volkswagen by the tens of thousands daily, the German automobile manufacturer sold a total of 6.8 million sausages last year. That is more than the amount of cars Volkswagen (Other brands under the Volkswagen umbrella not included) sells in a year worldwide.

As the company celebrates its 45th year of making these sausages, they can be found in grocery stores and local dealers are known to give them out in five-packs as gifts to customers.

    Is this a good way to make a small bike look bigger?

    Spotted on SG Road Vigilante's facebook page is this amusing photo of a motorbike's number plate. According to them, this was taken on 1st of July 2020 at Bukit Batok West Edge and the bike in question is a Yamaha Aerox. We have no idea why would someone flout the law to do this. To improve aerodynamics? To make the bike look bigger than it is? Or to make it harder to be identifed by the Traffic Police's camera and Traffic Police wannabes on SG Road Vigilante? What do you all think?

    Tribecar Toyota Wish speeds on wet road and crashes, pay come, pay gone

    Happy Labour Day, Singapore! Some of us are thinking of how to utilise our pay that just came in. Then, there are jokers like this Toyota Wish driver who blows it all in an instant (and more). Speeding on PIE A dashcam video of the said driver has gone viral and here are some takeaways after watching the video. No one drives a Wish to speed. It's a family MPV for goodness sake. Don't do stupid things with other people's car, much less a rental Here's the 47-second video taken from SG Road Vigilante   The Wish loses control at the 0.09 mark of the video. Online chatter Wow. To the Toyota Wish driver, good luck paying for all the damages for a rental car.    

    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?

    Youths use Circuit Breaker period to ride PMDs in CTE tunnel!

    With roads pretty much empty under this current semi-lockdown period, some youths have been spotted making use of the empty roads to ride their PMDs. As seen on a facebook page SG Reckless PMD Riders, three youths can be seen in the short Instagram video riding next to each other at high speed in the CTE Tunnel. Admittedly, the clip isn't of the best quality but it does seem like they were doing in excess of 40km/h, well over the speed limits of e-scooter.  Of course, it doesn't matter as no one is allowed to be using their PMDs on the public road.  In fact, they aren't even supposed to be out of their homes at all and going for joyrides! Check out some of the comments on the page. Not suprisingly, they were not very pleasant. SG-Reckless-PMD-Riders-PMD-high-speed-at-CTE-Facebook.mp4
