What to do with neighbours who install loud exhaust systems for their cars

What to do with neighbours who install loud exhaust systems for their cars

If there's something strange in the neighbourhood, who you gonna call?

Ghostbusters!

If there's something unbearable like the loud exhaust from an RX-8 (I think it’s an RX-8), who you gonna call?

LTA!

LTA takes your complaints seriously

In a post uploaded on SG Road Vigilante, a video and various images of 2 LTA officers checking out the undercarriage of an RX-8 has gone viral.

Here's the link to the long video (might take awhile to load because it’s 4mins+ long, I suggest skimming through the video).

The story behind this

Apparently, a "pek cek" (exasperated) neighbour could not take the sound of the car’s exhaust and made a complaint to LTA.

The neighbour even left a note for the owner of the car.

I can feel the passion from this comment.

Very interesting plot twist. I think the neighbour will have to lan lan suck thumb, wear earplugs.

-_- Err. LTA stands for Land Transport Authority.

If you want to complain

Have a neighbour with too much money and owns a car that disrupts the peace of the neighbourhood?

Call LTA @ 1800 2255 582

The officers will come down to investigate in no time.

Sometimes, its not about the exhaust. But the hao lian attitude. Come back must rev rev. Go stun must rev rev. KNN scared people dunno u drive a LJ sports car. My neighbour driving a BMW 525i is a classic example. Keep reving the LJ Supersprint Xos. Even the Lambo and Ferrari and the Evo X in my car park are better behave.

Ive also driven LJ Evo 9, X and Scooby, I did not do that for sure.

What so sporty with the exhaust making disturbing loud noise to others in the car parks? TP and LTA officers can spot these modified cars on the roads everyday. Such car should be sent for inspection twice yearly! Many are playing tricks with these illegal modified items removed before send for inspection, once done re-stall back all these illegal devices.

If the exhaust were actually legal, I think he should give a few more revs every evening to show his love and appreciation for the bao toh kia neighbour without the balls to put his details down to discuss it civilly first

My block beside main road... So one side is car park got loud exhaust, the other side main road also got loud exhaust.... And it's not just ramming the engine but the jokers actually sprint on the car park!

I think nothing beats the high pitch motorcycle exos going through the neighbourhood at night.

Thankfully this case is not the norm and most of the people who drives loud cars know basic courtesy to the neighbours, else can you imaging the rock concert going on in the car park of high end condos or landed properties? 🤣

Wah, this one must be arrested and have his car impounded. Maybe the other residents should submit their car recording to TP!

Next time I suggest that you take a golf ball, stuff it in the exhaust pipe. Hopefully, the exhaust manifold explode.

Totally agree.

Even waiting at traffic junctions also must rev, don't they know it only irritates people and all they get in karma is curses and not envy?

Why do u use 'ramming'and not reving? Ram is like literally copulating with the engine.

Really irritating when I have just painstakingly put the infants to bed and the car starts to roar in the car park.

Sg is long overdue a noise camera. Have been planning to write to ST forum on this. Sinkees are already the most sleep deprived on this planet. Just as they falling asleep, the roar of a modified motorbike or car jolt them awake. It affects our sanity.

These chaps must pay by having their rides impounded for a month + fine.

    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!

    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!

    This is not the way to do an Aventador convoy!

    Last weekend saw the tragic accident of a BMW driver who was flung out of his E92 3 Series convertible along PIE. Condolences to the poor soul who did not survive the crash. Last weekend also saw the not-so-tragic accident of two Lamborghini Aventadors crashing into each other along Sembawang Road on 7 June. The photos of the 2 lamborghinis which crashed into each other went viral among local car clubs with SG Road Vigilante further furnishing us with the video shown here.  According to the SGRV's post, the owners of the Aventadors removed their number plates promptly after the accident but its members could spot the similar black bonnet, black strip , white brake caliper and etc. that was similar to another yellow Lamborghini Aventador which was caught driving recklessly at Newton.     Check out what netizens have to say about this double crash!
    Is this a case of 'you get what you deserve'? Or do you guys think the crash is a loss to our local car scene?

    Buyer goes for a test drive and makes damm well sure the safety features were working!

    Last weekend saw Singapore going into Phase 2, whereby almost every industry could become operational again. With showrooms closed for more than a month since the start of our lockdown, naturally this weekend also saw some decent traffic. Unfortunately, one test drive in particular went bad for this particular Honda shopper at Leng Kee... We don't have details on exactly what happened but it does look like this Red Honda Jazz that was probably going through a test drive, isn't going to be sold as a new car anytime soon. On the bright side, we can be sure that Honda's safety features sure work very well. 

    P.S. We reckon with the upcoming all new Jazz's Honda Sensing safety suite, this accident could have been avoided.
