Red-light-beating AETOS driver exclaims "Potong Jalan" after getting T-boned by taxi!?

A video of an accident between an AETOS car and a taxi has become viral.

The video was uploaded on Singapore Road Accident's Facebook page less than 13 hours ago and has since garnered 267 shares!

If you haven't seen the video, here you go!

In the video, the AETOS driver makes a right turn when the right-turn arrow is in the red. The oncoming taxi was unable to brake in time and crashed head-on into the side of the AETOS car.

How do we know this? The video is so blurred!

It's a simple skill of deduction, my dear Watson.

Spot it? Just in case, here's how it should look to make a proper right turn. Now compare it with the screenshot above.

Potong Jalan siol

A few second after the crash, the AETOS driver starts shouting (to no one in particular): "Potong Jalan siol."  

I always thought that this phrase meant "steal" or "walked away". Like "I potong jalan-ed his girlfriend."

Ooooh. Thanks, Smart Local!

I digress.

There was no way the taxi “potong-ed” the AETOS driver because the taxi had the right of way.

If you don’t speak Malay, you might have missed this

I went through the video with my Malay-speaking colleagues, and they picked up something interesting.

At 0.33 – 0.35 ish of the video, the driver says "Kau suroh jalan eh?" - "you said move eh?". This was probably directed to the passenger who told him to go ahead and make the turn at the start of the video.

This AETOS driver damn fast to push blame sia.

Another guy caught it too! And, yes, I hope everyone is fine as well. It was quite a hard crash.

Agreed.

There’s always a practical commenter.

To think these ppl are outsourced to direct traffic when the traffic lights are down.

Whoever exclaim "potong jalan", he must have hit his head so hard he dunno what he's saying. Probably a flash back of how his gf got potong jalan by another dude.

Just admit it is mistake of not waiting for the right turn arrow to turn green and make an illegal right turn lah! Anyway the repair cost will be settled by one of the insurance company mah!

    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.

    Fatal accident could spell the end of the discretionary right-turn!

    A video showing a white car failing to check for oncoming traffic while doing a right turn has gone viral. Unfortunately, the consequences were unpleasant as a Foodpanda motorcyclist was killed in the process.  The motorcyclist, a 41-year-old deliveryman from Malaysia, was unconscious when help arrived and eventually succumbed to his injuries at Ng Teng Fong General Hospital. He was reported to have been thrown 30 metres due to the impact and suffered brain injuries as a result. According to Stomp, the accident took place at the junction of Toh Guan Road and Boon Lay Way at 7.58pm on the 10th of March. The 36-year old Mercedes-Benz driver has been arrested for dangerous driving causing death. There has been a debate that discretionary right-turn junctions should be abolished as there has been an increase in accidents related to it. Could this signal an end to such junctions?

    Honda Stream gets Covid-19 slammed out of it by BMW 6 Series at Changi Village

    This accident happened at Changi Village hawker centre carpark. You can watch the full video of the accident below courtesy of Roads.sg (if you haven't already seen it)   What’s happening Honda Stream exits the carpark and attempts to make a right turn on a two-way road. The driver seems oblivious to the fact that there's a stop sign and inches the car onto the main road. The Honda Steam driver then jams the brakes and in less than a second, what looks like a BMW 6 Series crashes into it. Hard. Different points of view If you replay the video, you'll notice that even after the crash, there were no cars that went past on the other side of the road. Meaning, the Honda Stream had more than enough time and space to avoid the accident. Jam break for what? The driver also ignored the stop sign and failed to do proper checks before moving off. On the other hand, based on the sheer force of impact, the BMW was going pretty fast too. What the people say This sounds legit. I think it's the Honda Stream driver's fault. The BMW driver sway balls. Also, there's a lesson here people - Stay the #$%& at home.

    Two jokers trick the internet into thinking their Fiat Doblo did 200km/h

    In case you're wondering what a Fiat Doblo looks like. It's a goods vehicle. Why is this information important for this story? Take a look at this latest viral video But, I don’t understand Malay! Don't worry! We translated the whole conversation for you thanks to my malay colleagues!  Sounds similar? I think they made this video in response to another video of two guys doing 180km/hr on the expressway in a Suzuki Swift Sport. We wrote an article about that just yesterday btw (blatant backlinking opportunities should not be wasted). You may click the link below to check the story out. https://www.mycarforum.com/blogs/entry/6008-someone-is-keen-to-show-that-their-swift-sport-can-do-180kmh-on-the-cte/ On top of that, the person who uploaded the video included this in the caption It's a good laugh If you didn't realise, they weren't actually speeding. The speedometer of the vehicle seems to be faulty, and these two funny guys thought that they could have a bit of fun with it. The driver's laughter made me lol more than once. That’s for sure. Don't need call polis please and thank you!
