A van has been injured in this accident due to a cyclist's silly carelessness.

Jokes aside, this is quite an unfortunate incident whereby a cyclist smashed into the back of a Toyota Hiace van which was stationary along one of Old Airport Road's traffic junction.

The accident happened in the wee hours of the morning, with the cyclist apparently beating a red light at the previous junction as traffic was light. With the need to go as fast possible, he likely chose keep his gaze low on the road to be as aerodynamic as possible without realising that the van that he was about to crash into had actually stopped at the upcoming traffic junction. 

Thankfully, the cyclist survived but he sure looked quite messed up. We hope he recovers well!

P.S. SG Road Vigilante's video thumbnail might be slightly disturbing for some. Viewer discretion advised!

If the van is not there, the cyclist might have rammed into the pedestrian crossing the road!

😂 Boy, does he train hard.

Can the van's insurance company claim from the cyclist?

I like your perspective. Thank you, Van.

    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?

    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!

    Accord driver goes bersek and lets camera car rear end him

    After watching this clip that was spotted on SG Road Vigilante, we can't help but see the importance of being able keep our own temper in control. Losing one's temper is easy and when not kept in check, you might end up doing something you will regret in the future. Shot on the evening of 26th of September 2020 along Central Blvd, a Honda Accord can be seen in the video cutting in from the left of the camera car at high speed before slamming onto its brakes real hard. The camera car, which itself seems to be going along at quite some speed, could not stop in time and crashed into the Accord as the result. While no one can confirm the Accord driver's intention, it is almost safe to say that he just wanted to let the camera knock into him by braking hard to a stop for no reason. As it was a slight bump, no one was hurt. The Accord driver then got out calmly and proceed to take some photos. So guys, what do you reckon? Is this part of a road rage incident which the camera car's footage did not show? Or is it an insurance scam? Or is it a combination of both? Let us know in the comments below!

    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!
