Now that is one close shave.

ezgif.com-optimize.gif.02839194c0bc49d877b3dddde82b13df.gif

As seen on SG Road Vigilante's facebook page, an Audi TT failed to stop at the give way line, nearly crashing into a Mitsubishi Lancer Ex which had the right of way on 29th of April 

Eagle-eyed readers would have definitely spotted the P-plate sign on the Audi, signaling to us that this might just be a rookie's honest mistake.

In our opinion, we thought the camera car would have gotten a larger shock, seeing the Lancer swerve into his lane along Sengkang West Road.

On another note, should the Lancer have slowed down instead of (recklessly)accelerating into the camera car's lane? 

Let us know in the comments below!

No, the Lancer should not have slowed down. That would've resulted in an accident. Bad drivers often get the idea that slowing down is always the answer. Sometimes slowing down is more dangerous. The Lancer drove well. If I had to quibble, I'd say by defensive driving principles, he shouldn't have been going abreast of the cam car at all. Either go slower or faster to leave a comfortable gap to slot into. But the fact that he managed anyway without the cam car having to ebrake means he pretty much did OK. 

The damn Audi on the other hand... bloody dangerous driver. P plate or not he should have his licence revoked or at least loaded with DPs for not yielding to traffic on the major road. Still 12DP in 1st year = gantong right?

Driver of Lancer is a much better driver compared to an expensive TT with a white elephant driver :grin:

The Audi driver is clear at fault, a very dangerous act to other road users. Should report to TP with this video!

The Cam driver is the best among the three.

He managed to keep a safe distance while the other 2 sort among themselves which is the lousier driver.

If the cam driver had driven just alittle bit faster (on his safe, independent lane) the 2 other would be dead by now.

IMO it's not possible for the Audi TT to not see the Lancer coming as it's negotiating the bend. The TT's intention was to move ahead the coming traffic. But the turbo lag in the old 1.8L turbo engine is overwhelmingly...laggy. Plus the driver being a noob he was probably slow around the bend. He absolutely couldnt pull it off and got cut off obviously. Kuah kuah....

Being caught on dash cam and for the world to see is probably most humiliating. Especially being made a gif running on a loop indefinitely.

    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.

    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

    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.   What the people say 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. Is it?        

    This i30 driver reckons he is one of Osaka's street racers!

    This video has gone viral among the car enthusiasts community in Singapore.  A white Hyundai i30 has been filmed by the camera car's passenger showing the Korean car cutting across lanes recklessly with signaling along the SLE. Obviously trying to taunt or block the camera car (an Audi), we have no idea what is the story behind this incident as the video does not come with any audio. The video lasts for 30 seconds and could well have been going on for sometime. We hope nothing bad comes out of this road rage incident. P.S. Dear Hyundai driver, maybe you should watch less video clips on Youtube about Osaka's infamous street racers... ef6b0a0d-6339-4962-9dda-e287bb98811c.MP4
