BMW driver brake checks cabbie resulting in accident on PIE!

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??

    PHV drivers brought the heat up on pre-cooling off day

    As everyone should know, today, 9th of July 2020 is the cooling off day for GE2020 and it so happened that the weather is pretty cool after the morning downpour.  That said, things were not so cool for these two Private Hire drivers yesterday.  As seen on Sg Road Vigilante, a video of two PHV drivers turning the heat up (for the wrong reasons) has been spotted.  No one knows what they they were fighting for but we can almost safely assume it is due to one of them not giving way to the other or something similar like that at this NEX taxi stand in Serangoon. It then seemed like a causally-dressed (weird) taxi driver tried to stop them. Kudos for him. What really amused us was the replies in the comments section. Check them out!

    This is not how you keep your distance from others on the road

    We know that all of us should be keeping a safe distance from each other in such times. But we reckon these guys that have been caught on video might have taken it abit too far. This video, as posted by SG Road Vigilante, shows a slow moving camera car (claimed to be doing 80km/h but it looks more like 60km/h to us) that was traveling on KPE towards TPE chancing upon a bunch or cars that were abit too keen to distance themselves from any traffic around them. Apparently this happened on the wee hours of 16th May morning and from what we can gather, the lead car is a R34 Nissan Skyline that zoomed past the camera car at a speed that seemed to double the legal speed limit of the KPE.  Its hard to tell from the video but other than the Skyline, we could also identify a few other cars including a Suzuki Swift, a Volkswagen Golf, a Volkswagen Jetta (that might have been the same guy that was charged for organising illegal street racing), a Mitsubishi Evo 9 and a couple of Honda Civics. Interestingly, most of the comments were attacking the camera car for being slow. We wonder why. On the other hand, there will always be keyboard warriors that come out with weird and silly comments like the example below... 95563179_890011821514718_986642270115562833_n.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!

    This is not the way to make friends with a fellow VW owner

    For most owners who are into cars, they will tend to want to meet owners who own the same car/model as themselves. Hence from time to time, we will see many brand/model-based car clubs gather at places like the indoor stadium to chat and get to know more about their cars. However, we are kind of sure these Volkswagen drivers in the video below won't be friends anytime soon... Uploaded on ROADS.sg, we can see a Volkswagen Golf coming from the opposite direction before colliding straight on with the camera car (a Volkswagen Jetta). The accident happened on the morning of 22nd of April at the PIE interchange between Jurong Town Hall Road and Bukit Batok Road. There were no reports as of press time of what caused the Golf owner to drive into the opposite lane. We hope he did not faint or suffer a heart attack, causing him to lose control of his car. We did noticed the Scirocco (yes, another Volkswagen) moving away from danger as the Golf came closer. Good reflexes dude. Maybe if they stayed at home, such things won't have happened... videoplayback.mp4
