Overzealous Megane RS loses it and crashes into the barriers

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. 

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!

Because it's a French car 😄

Could be due to tyre condition, oversteer, or condition of road, eg. oil on road.

Speed isn't that fast. Seem like just normal avoidance. Dunno how come so jialat lol. Even a attrage would have been able to handle that without issue?

I think something big impacted the windscreen. It's on the passenger side. The driver must have been startled and lost control...and crashed. I also noticed it's drizzling. The road is actually wet.

Time to bring a case to Renault. For all we know, it could be a car malfunction..

The Megane RS does not appear to be driving super fast and neither does avoiding the road works require it to make sharp turns.

For a sports car to be unable to handle this, it's really unexpected. Worn out tyres could be a potential culprit.

At least driver immediately put on hazard lights so further chance of rear collision

    Does a coupe have to be pretty? We test the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe!

    Idris is back and this time we are testing another controversial BMW! We get down low with the car to look at the details that make the 2 Series Gran Coupe more than just a four-door with a sloping roof. Of course, what many of you would be concerned about would be if there is sufficient space at the rear for those unfortunate enough to have to use the rear doors. Idris looks like he is alright back there (matching clothing and seat colours entirely coincidental). But you will want to watch the video if you're planning on regularly squeezing three in there. And if you're looking for an interior that will wow passengers, the 2 Series Gran Coupe sports BMW's latest Operating System 7.0, delivering you the suite of BMW's connected services. Join us for the drive in the video! If you like your steering wheels thicc, this is something you'll want to consider.

    Kudos to our Special Operation Command for stopping this cyclist!

    Our Circuit Breaker measures sure bring up quite a few weird incidents. I mean why would you even cycle in an expressway tunnel? As seen on ROAD.sg's website, it did seemed like someone cycled along our Marina Coastal Expressway on the 9th of April and was stopped by a Special Operation Command Police vehicle. As uncommon as it is to see a cyclist on an expressway, it is even rarer to see someone from the SOC stop a traffic offender as it is not part of their job scope. Kudos to the fellas for going the extra mile!  Even netizens on the facebook page were also grateful to police force! videoplayback.mp4

    Someone is keen to show that their Swift Sport can do 180km/h on the CTE!

    Now this is not very smart. Thanks to social media apps like Instagram allowing news to spread like bush fire, you now best keep your 'bad' stuff to yourself... Check out this video of some mates videoing themselves going at high speed on our expressways in the wee morning of 10th May 2020. As seen on SG Road Vigilante, this insta story posted by n1zem, shows them going as fast as 180km/h in their Suzuki Swift Sport. Granted, the roads are pretty empty as we are in the midst of the Circuit Breaker period but there is still no reason for going this fast.  For those who are wondering, 'Naked Crew" is a local car group and they can be found on Instagram. As usual, the comments by netizens are harsh and probably a bit hurtful. 1.mp4

    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!
