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.

See the pic properly, the BMW brake not because he do brake check, its cos the front cam car slow down, he slow down and cabby didn't keep safe distance.

 

Anyway it's dangerous for the beemer to filter like that too...this video proofs it..

Both has  fault.  The BMW actually did signal for awhile so that wasn't cutting in "abruptly".  The taxi driver, seeing that the car in front is signalling to filter in, should have slow down and give way to the BMW.  If the taxi driver drove graciously, by slowing down and give way,  the accident may have been prevented.

The BMW on the other hand, should check for the  speed of the cab before cutting in. If the cab doesn't look like wanna give way, then the BMW should have slowed down, wait for the taxi to pass, then only filter in.

I think what happened is that the taxi drive is unhappy the BMW cuts in, so he tailgated the BMW, but the BMW has to brake because the car (cam car) has to slow down. So in the end accident.

All because of ego issue from the cab and probably also heck care attitude from the BMW by  cutting in anyway.

Agree with all.

Bimmer signal for quite a while, but TransCab (no surprise here) refuse to give way.

Bimmer hard cut-in, TransCab TL, tailgate

Cam car brake, Bimmer had to slow down, TransCab tailgate and kena.

From insurance perspective, this video will probably give 100% liability to TransCab - hurray!

Sorry but the driver did not perform any brake check. Please study the video properly.

happened to me too late last year.

Would mycarforum or Singapore Reckless Drivers share this too. Nearly caused a collision and chain accident too with the compacted road traffic conditions that day.  To think such drivers are sharing the same roads as us.. with completely no regards of safety of others around them and only thinking of themselves first..!

I don’t think if you put your signal out, gives you the right to filter. Still have to give way to the traffic. If traffic does not give way, you’re out of luck. Be patient and wait for your turn to filter. Defensive driving learnt in driving school given back to instructor??

    Driver races with a Hayabusa and spins out of control but recovers "initial D" style!

    Singapore has its very own Takumi! (The main character of Initial D, btw) A video of a car with unknown origins racing against a Suzuki Hayabusa has received over 40 shares under 5 hours! If you haven't already seen the video, here you go! The original video is from District Singapore's Facebook page.   What's happening? In the video, it starts with the Hayabusa abruptly cutting into the cam car's lane and causing the car to swerve and spin out of control. But, the car driver somehow manages to retain back control and continue on his merry way. The kicker? Image: New Initial D Legend 1: Awakening (Sanzigen, Liden Films, Sentai Filmworks) That's not even the best part! If you were observant, you would have noticed a bunch of coins on the dashboard of the car. Watch the video again. The coins barely move even with all the spinning and swerving! Very much like the cup of water Takumi uses in Initial D no? What the people say Hayabusa good siol Confirm There’s that possibility Lol I’m just glad no one got hurt.

    It doesn't matter whose lot it was - Don't forget about the most important thing!

    What's the most important thing? Stick to the end to find out! It's a good one. Like legit. A video uploaded on SG Road Vigilante has sparked a furious debate online that split netizens evenly on two sides of the coin. The video shows a Mercedes-Benz "stealing" a carpark lot from the cam car driver. Or is it really "stealing"? That is the question. The video, which was uploaded last week has since received over 260,000 views and almost 1000 comments! If you haven't seen the video, here’s the link courtesy of SG Road Vigilante's Facebook page Have you been in this situation before? In the video, cam car is patiently waiting for a carpark lot at IMM carpark for about 10 minutes. A White Mercedes-Benz CLS Class pulls up a couple of cars in front of the cam car. When the driver of the CLS (let's call him Mr CLS) spots a family walking towards the area he's waiting at; he decides to reverse to "claim more ground". Needless to say, once cam car driver notices what Mr CLS is doing, cam car inches forward to get the soon-to-be-vacant lot as he was waiting there for a long time already. Mr CLS gives him no chance to do so and reverses into the now-empty parking lot. This extra guy To make matters even worse, someone steps out of the CLS (supposedly the son of the driver) and walks over to cam car to give justification why the lot belongs to the occupants of the CLS instead of the cam car . He even makes a couple of rude gestures to the cam car once that's done. So whose lot is it? Some people say that the CLS had the right of way Calculative sia this guy and very specific too Some people jumped to the defence of the patient cam car driver The most important thing It doesn’t matter who the lot belonged to but we can all agree that on the most important thing....... This guy, is a complete a**hole Thanks Johnson! Couldn't have said so better myself.

    This Abang's gangster behaviour got me super pissed off (even when I'm typing this)

    In a video submitted to Roads.SG and uploaded on YouTube and Facebook, a recent case of road rage has got me fuming mad with a particular individual. However, I'll try to be as civil and professional as possible. The video was just uploaded about 3 hours ago and has already received more than 100 shares on Facebook. Here's the video, in case you haven't seen it. Video from Road.SG YouTube channel The driver and his mother were entering a HDB estate and driving towards the entrance of a carpark when a white Honda Vezel almost has a head-on collision with their car. Screenshot taken from Roads.SG YouTube Channel Reviewing the footage, you can see the Vezel was on the verge of crossing the white line to the opposing lane. The dashcam driver gives a honk, accident averted, and that should be the end of the story yes? No. An Abang decides that there was an injustice with the horn and goes all aggro on the dashcam driver. Abang wasn't even the driver of the Vezel! Abang:  The relationship between the Honda Vezel driver and Abang is not clear. Dashcam driver tries to defend himself and asks the Abang to look at his dashcam footage for proof, to which, the Abang says "don't need" multiple times. The spark to the argument The dashcam driver then says "Nevermind, LTA will see" and intends to drive off, but Abang  Dashcam driver loses his cool and disregarding the warnings of his mother, he steps out of the car to confront Abang. Abang asks a damn stupid question - "What's your problem?". Dude, the problem is you. But, I digress. Moving on, Abang starts screaming his lungs out at Dashcam Driver. He's so fierce that Dashcam Driver actually starts shivering (the subtitles in the video helps a lot). Screenshot taken from Roads.SG YouTube Channel Shifting over to camera phone footage All this time, we only caught a slight glimpse of Abang. But with video footage from a camera phone, you can now see Exhibit A of the Singaporean Douchebag - Angry Abang. Screenshot taken from Roads.SG YouTube Channel I don't know about you, but when he starts laughing at the camera and saying shit like: Doesn’t it tick you off?  The last straw My blood boils to its very core when he starts shouting at his mother - for presumably getting angry with his stupidity and trying to talk some sense into him. Screenshot taken from Roads.SG YouTube Channel Abang, you sir, are a turd aka shit. That's as vulgar as I can be in this article. What the people say Can get wife meh like that? Comments taken from Roads.SG Facebook page What do you think?

    Grab driver and his male passenger thinks of others before self in a nasty Thanksgiving car accident

    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. The cause? This Lorry. 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!” Whut? Image taken from bigover.com 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.
