Van lands in the bushes thanks to street racers

Van lands in the bushes thanks to street racers

Nothing new here. This is just another case of street racers causing trouble to the general road users.

Shared among group chats in Whatsapp is a series of videos that show a Volkswagen Golf GTI mk5 owner being bombarded with hokkien vulgarities. No, we won't be translating what those words mean in case you are wondering...

After some digging, we found out that the GTI driver who was being shouted at, and a Mitsubishi Evo X were zipping left and right through traffic along CTE on 9 Jul 2020 before causing a Toyota Hiace to crash and flip sideways into the bushes at the left side of the highway.

We could see that the GTI sustained some damage to its front left hence the driver stopped. We assumed the Evo X driver did not stop and continued on its way.

 

This is not the first time the GTI owner has been caught driving recklessly as you can see from the video above by ROADS.sg.

Of course neitzens on facebook are bashing the reckless drivers as we can see from Thelocalsociety's FB page. What are your thoughts on such drivers? Let us know!

The traffic is so heavy with vehicles on all lanes. What's the point of going fast?

looks like this driver is a frequent offender on the road. I hope the punishment is severe, so he won't endanger other road users life.

He clearly was not bothered about the injured woman, nor the driver inside. Apparently this is not his first time. He also seems to be from a rich family, hence he doesn't feel anything as he was always pampered. That's a guess. White Horse. 

1. Lifetime ban

2. Imprisonment , but not too light. Causing injury is up to 2years

3. Car will be confiscated causing huge monetary loss.

4. Fine as well. 

5. Compensation for the victims plus extra.

6. There wouldn't be any insurance towards the perpetrator, since he was driving recklessly, and speeding. 

7. This is not classified with just dangerous driving. More serious charges apply taking note of the damages caused, the seriousity, and the injuries. 

8. His friend would be charged with dangerous driving indeed. Speeding, and possible revocation of licence.  That first case would be an indication. The perpetrator would get a few times heavier. Imprisonment is a Must. 

9. This is Not his first time. It's almost daily. 

10. Compare. A person who had some beers and technically drink driving but going slow and calm (not drunk) just wanting to reach home. But with a road block, hes doomed to a suspension or revocation. His only fault was the drinking beforehand. Compare that to this Gold driver who not only cause damage and injuries, plus inconvenience to others, and yet not bothered about the injured, offering no assistance, with no regards to others except himself. Prison sentence should be meted out. Let's petition that.

    Not sure how to parallel park? Here's a guide if you need a refresher

    If you find parallel parking challenging, here's a step by step guide to refresh yourself if you feel like overcoming your fears. Seen on ROADS.sg and contributed by Syed Al-Qudree,  this very comprehensive guide even though some might argue that it is not easy to judge the distance between the front car and yours when you are pre-positioning in Step 1. Do you think the guide is helpful?

    Heavy rains expose deadly section of PIE

    With the weather turning slightly wetter in the recent days, this part of the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE) is turning out to be quite deadly. Shared by the 'good samaritans' of SG Road Vigilante, someone has been recording from his/her apartment some of the accidents that happened at the Jalan Anak Bukit flyover towards the direction of Jurong. As we can all see, all the four incidents had the drivers losing control of the rear of their vehicles as they crest over the left hand turn. Some of drivers looked like they oversped but not every one was doing so. We guessed these drivers all lifted off the accelerator abruptly and/or had bad tyres at the rear while negotiating the turn, causing their vehicles to go into oversteer.  LTA has made this corner less treacherous than before in the recent years but it still does seem to catch quite a few drivers out. Other than having good tyres, our advice when approaching the corner is to maintain your speed and to obviously keep to the speed limit.   P.S. this corner does remind us of the infamous corner, Eau Rouge of the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium. Watch the clip and see how cars go off the corner as they lose the rear of their cars in that deadly turn.

    BMW goes off speeding donning another car's licence plate!

    We thought things like this only happens in the movies but as it turns out, there are people doing this in real life as well! As seen on a Facebook post by SG Road Vigilante, the owner of this red 7-seater BMW 216D Grand Tourer wrote in to the page claiming that another BMW 2 Series in a similar shade of red has been using their number plate, chalking up fines they were not responsible for. However, this red 2 Series is a 5-seater variant that is called the Active Tourer and it looks largely similar as you can see from the screenshots taken from BMW Singapore's website.

    Reproduced below is an extract from the rightful owner of the plate SGX821M that was in SGRV's post.
      Hi, I was notified that you posted a video back in July on a speeding car with my license plate #SGX821M. I would like to highlight that THAT is not my car. Someone is impersonating us using our license plate. I drive a 7 seater BMW 2 series while the car in the video was a 5 seater 2 series. We were issued fines that we are not responsible for. AND my husband literally drove past the idiot this morning bearing our license plate while we were dropping our kids off to school. We couldn’t give chase because we were on opposite sides of the road. I have lodged a police report and have notified the LTA. We are awaiting investigations. If you happen to see the car, please help update the police on its whereabouts. Check out the video of the imposter who was also featured on SGRV before.

    Traffic dispute convinces many that cyclists are getting out of hand

    Are cyclists getting out of hand these days?  We'd say so as more and more videos of cyclists ignoring traffic rules and getting angry with other road users have been surfacing. It doesn't help as COVID has encouraged more people to workout, with cycling fast becoming one of the more popular choices/excuses to get out of the house. According to SG Road Vigilante, this incident between 2 cyclists and the camera car happened on 30th August 2020 at 17:15 along east coast road. As the road is a single lane road, SGRV claims that the camera car wanted to overtake and horned at the cyclists that he/she is proceeding with an overtaking maneuver. Unfortunately, the cyclist wasn't happy and started some 'ah-beng taunting' actions. Do you think the cyclists in the videos are self-entitled? Or do you reckon the driver should have just queued up and drove slowly behind them? Let us know!
