Spotted on the facebook page 'private hire sg cars/partners - grab, gojek, ryde, tada etc', someone posted a photo of a fender bender between a BMW and a Toyota and we were shocked by how much you can claim if you were involved in such a accident.

Yup, you saw it right. The cost of repairs on the BMW E60 5 Series would amount to a staggering $88,000.

To put that into perspective, you can buy yourself a similar BMW coupled with a new 10-year COE and lots of change left for petrol and parking.

Others on the post agreed too that this is one really over inflated amount.

That said, there were some who thought that the is not the actual amount that was asked for...

Unfortunately or fortunately, depending on who's point of view, that is the discharge voucher which you could say is going to be the actual amount paid out.

Of course quite a few felt that this is wrong...

Let us know what you readers think of this in the comments below!

UPDATE: There are some rumors that the discharge form was meant for a Lamborghini Gallardo and not the two cars as pictured above.

Not a good way to get a free car.

It might, however, be a good way to get free involuntary facial reconstruction.

    A little too mild for our liking?

    And just like that, another sgCarMart review is ready to sneak up on you! Seems like Julian is missing so James summons our producer himself to pair with him for the review! Of course, a round of hazing is necessary to initiate the fresh blood, and we do so courtesy of the boot of the Mazda3! Just kidding. The Mazda's 444 litre boot space is apparently good enough to fit two Jons. But as with any family hauler, space in the rear bench is just as important, and does the Mazda succeed? With flying colours apparently! Those that keep up with our reviews will be well aware that the new Mazda3 has made great strides in interior quality, and likewise, our producers seems fairly impressed with the build quality up at the front. So after all is said and done, do they opt to buy the car? Watch the full video below to find out!

    Yoga Teacher throws a tantrum at Grab driver when she does not "get her way."

    A recent YouTube video of a lady berating a Grab driver with verbal insults is going viral. If you haven't already watched it, here's the link to the video. You’re welcome. Do note how the person who submitted the video titled it, it's important.    In the video, the lady wants her driver to make a U-Turn and head towards her destination by her preferred route. The driver refuses and tells her that it's the Grab driver's discretion to choose to listen to the rider or follow the fastest route as indicated on the GPS.  In this case, he flat out refused because he was scared there would be a traffic jam. We went to do a little digging and ta-dah! It turns out he was right!   Image taken from Grab.com The lady should have kept her cool and Googled whether the driver's claim was true, but of course, she didn't. She starts to "play family" which was very uncalled for. Here are some of her comments: Image taken from Traffic SG Facebook page Why lah? Why? What did his family do to you? Screenshot of video from Traffic SG Facebook page Naturally, the driver gets offended by her rude comments and starts shooting his mouth off to her as well. He questions her marital status out of nowhere. I honestly thought he was going to talk about another part of the male body. The lady goes on to tell the driver that "if he represents what Singaporean men are, no one needs to get married." By now, you should be curious as to how the lady looks like. Throughout the whole video, the spotlight is on the driver and she doesn’t show her face, but we found her.   Taken from balispiritfestival.worldsecuresystems.com Wait a minute. Anybody have anything to say? Of course they do! Image taken from Traffic SG Facebook page Me and you sister!  If you want the driver to follow your preferred route in the future then here's a helpful suggestion from a member of the public.   Image taken from Traffic SG Facebook page Very wise words. The lady's Facebook page have since been deactivated. ----------------------------------------------- Worried that you too might be an obnoxious passenger? Check out the most irritating behaviors that we face as drivers! -----------------------------------------------

    MX-5 lady left note to criticise Volvo driver’s parking. Plot twist made me Google meaning of the word “Sanctimonious”.

    Imagine parking your car like you passed your driving test on the first try and then returning to your car with this note on the windscreen -     Did you really park like an idiot? Who left the note? Did they get hurt while getting out of their car from the passenger side? So many questions. To the car camera for answers.     Here’s our supposedly wronged and potentially injured party arriving in an MX-5. Very good choice of car. After 30 seconds of parking and having to exit the car from the passenger side, the lady comes out to take a photo of the “offending” Volvo S60.     She spends about 10 seconds taking photos of the car from multiple angles. We know the Volvo S60 looks good from any angle. After walking one round inspecting the car like it was at the front gate of an army camp, she leaves her note.     Did the Volvo driver park like an idiot? Well here’s the tea.     I can hear you screaming: “Lies! The driver probably took this photo at another lot! No way someone will park in that spot! Not even the nimble Miata!” Here’s the other photo.     At least the Volvo driver was nice enough to mask out the MX-5’s plate.   Here’s the full video uploaded on SG Road Vigilante:   And “Sanctimonious” means “making a show of being morally superior to other people.”   ----------------------------------------------- Impressed by how the MX-5 can fit into snug places? Here are some for sale.   Or maybe you're leaning more on the innocent Volvo S60? We've got you covered here too!   -----------------------------------------------

    A woman being a PUBIC nuisance on Middle Road. No, that's not a typo

    You probably have seen a video that went viral recently about a woman removing her clothes in anger on Middle Road. She even went as far as pulling down her panties! If you haven’t, here’s the video courtesy of Roads.sg In the video, you can see a woman taking off her clothes in response to a man (a cab driver) walking away from her. She is believed to have done this to play the victim card and make false accusations that the cab driver was the one who did it to her. Crucial eye witness account An eye witness of the incident posted the video on Roads.sg According to the witness, he saw the lady kicking the cab. She then began chasing the cab driver, scratching, punching and going all bat shit crazy. The driver did not retaliate to her provocation. So what triggered this? There have been no reports (as of yet) as to what led to this behaviour, but theories are being thrown around on social media. Even I would be offended. At least give me $10 What happened in the end In a recent STOMP article posted earlier today, it’s been confirmed that the lady, a 31-year old woman was arrested for PUBLIC nuisance. Yeap, I spelt that one right. You can read the full article here
