blogentry-129174-0-37418200-1526885077_thumb.jpgThose of you who have seen the royal wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on TV over the weekend might have caught the Queen drive past in this unique maroon limousine.

 

Well, this car turns out to be is a custom built 2002 Bentley State Limousine with only 2 in existence it is indeed a rare car making it even rarer than the Rolls-Royce Phantom IV, owned by various heads of state.

 

And if you thought that her car collection ends there, well you are sadly mistaken. Apparently, the Queen is a real car fan with quite a number of other cars in her collection and when she is not cruising around in the Bentley State Limousine she is seen driving around with these beauties.

 

2001 Jaguar Daimler V8 Super LWB

The Jaguar Daimler V8 Super LWB served as the personal car of the Queen for three years following its delivery to Buckingham Palace in 2001. She drove the car around her estate at Windsor Castle or to visit friends and dignitaries.

 

2015 Bentley Bentayga

The fastest and most powerful SUV in the world, it's also the most expensive, with prices starting at £160,200 for the basic model. But we are sure the car is modded to fit the queen.

 

and finally, a car that runs on wine?!

 

2008 Aston Martin Volante DB6

the Queen bought the DB6 for Prince Charles on his 21st birthday. He then converted the car in 2008 to run on special bioethanol fuel made from wine, as part of his ongoing effort to reduce emissions from the royal household by 25% within ten years. Kept at Highgrove, the car uses about four and a half bottles of wine for every mile it travels. Now that is traveling in style.

 

This list is nowhere near exhaustive but it does make us impressed. Oh yes, and did we mention that she loves her Jeeps? But that is for another day. All hail the Queen and congratulations to the royal family!

    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.

    We do not encourage this, but here's how you can ride 'like a boss'

    As the demand for food deliveries increase due to our current circuit breaker situation, it is only natural to see an increase in the amount of bikes fulfilling the food delivery demand.  Check out how this motorcyclist takes in a hard day's of work by riding in a relaxed manner on the road. Spotted by someone on the SLE on the 4th of May, this grabfood rider can be seen in the video with his legs crossed while using his mobile phone simultaneously. This is definitely not the safest way to ride but we doubt he is breaking any laws from doing so. That said, some of the comments by neitzens on SG Road Vigilante's page didn't agree and weren't so kind... What do you guys think? Let us know in the comment box below! 95500445_2129716763840421_303453959922408449_n.mp4

    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

    Is this another case of street racing during CB?

    Could this be another case of street racing spotted on our roads during the Circuit Breaker period? Spotted on Reckless Driver SG's facebook page, a video has been posted showing the camera car driving slowly on the middle land before a small group of cars went past it at a higher speed. Yes. this is milder than the incident on the KPE that had the drivers in the video arrested, with only three cars shown in the short 40-plus-second clip. In fact, we reckon the 'tiong chias' were doing approximately 120-140km/h while the camera car was doing 70-80km/h. The cars, likely a Ford Focus, a Honda FD Civic and a Honda Integra were caught on camera at around 11:20pm on the 25th of May heading towards AYE Jurong inside the CTE tunnel. 1.mp4 On another note, we were surprised to find most of the comments attacking the video owner, saying that the camera car was road-hogging. Do you agree? Let us know!
