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?

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.

    Watch how egos got the better of both these cars (Maserati crashed!)

    Not happy with being overtaken or high beamed at? Why not try jamming your brakes so that the car that offended you can crash into you?  That's what this Maserati Quattroporte driver did when the camera car behind beamed him. According SG Road Vigilante's post, the accident happened on the wee hours of 5th of Aug 2020 along Keppel Road. In the video, we can see the camera car trying to overtake both the Mercedes Vito and the Maserati but was blocked a couple of times. Both vehicles were apparently friends or colleagues from the same company and once the Maserati managed to overtake the camera car, the Maserati jammed his brakes suddenly, causing the camera car, which we reckon from that turbo flutter and gearshift, an Audi A4, to crash into it. The Maserati's occupants then came out, demanding the camera car driver to get out and "settle things". After some aggressive exchange of words, the Maserati just drove off as if nothing happened. Weird In our opinion, this is just one side of the story as we have no idea what the camera car driver did to anger the Maserati driver. Accidents like this usually takes two hands to clap. What do you guys reckon? Let us know!

    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!

    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!

    Overzealous Megane RS loses it and crashes into the barriers

    Another high-performance car has been spotted in a crash while going at a good speed. Our latest post shows a Black Renault Megane RS going at a decent speed before losing control while stepping on his brakes.  e166fed5-f4f3-4fbc-b00b-9de415dbd071.MP4 From the video, we can see that the driver was trying to avoid the road works in his lane but curiously, the car seems to have malfunctioned while he was on his brakes. If you looked at the video carefully, you could see straight black lines on the road, indicating that the tyres locked up before he slammed into the left side of the viaduct before bouncing across into the opposite barrier. While it did seem like the Megane was at or slightly above the speed limit, the crash is quite a mystery to us as under normal circumstances, there is more than sufficient space to stop or avoid the roadworks. What do you guys think? Could it be a brake failure, tyre puncture or a case of the driver falling asleep at the wheel? Let us know in the comments below!
