Honda Civic Turbo driver shows us how to overtake like a pro

Honda Civic Turbo driver shows us how to overtake like a pro

When if comes to overtaking, we bet this Honda Civic driver is one of the most skilled drivers on our road if not the most skilled.

This happened on Christmas eve at around 11:45pm along Bartley East Rd in the area of Kaki Bukit towards the CTE and we must say we are impressed with the precision of the overtake.

As you can see from the clip, the matt-greenish Civic Turbo came out of nowhere and moved across from one lane to the other with not much room to spare, before proceeding to accelerate away briskly.

Think you readers can do better? Let us know what you reckon in the comment box below!

I can and do blame cam car for a) staying in the right lane, especially with faster traffic behind and b) posting this video like a lame loser with a nasty caption aiming to bao toh the Honda driver.

The road at that point no longer has speed traps. The TP speed traps are on the flyover prior to this stretch. Cop with radar / camera gun.

Don't ask me how i know.

To me, quite the self-pawn video. Just need to keep to the left lane if you intend to cruise. Don't need to spend time to find video, crop and put bo liao caption. Life is much simpler if he/she uses some grey matter.

If he/she cant take people under-taking, keep left or drive faster. If scare of exceeding speed limit, keep left. The traffic is light and next right turn is at least 2km away (in case the excuse "I'm going to turn right soon" comes up).

I see his speed quite reasonable in relation to how fast the other two nearest car in front were travelling. Also about to overtake the nearest car and also seems to be quite close or maybe even slightly above the speed limit.

The Civic instead seems to be at 90+ or even close to 100 after overtaking, likely to be speeding aggressively.

Lane 1 (right lane) is for overtaking and not for cruising at leisure.

There's a reason why the video is just 10 seconds long. If you don't want anyone to doubt you, post a video at least 10 seconds before and after the accident, as well as footage from the rear camera (if you have 1).

    Otters nearly didn't get to live another day at Orchard Road crossing

    Seen on Mothership.sg is a family of otters trying to cross Orchard Road near Plaza Singapura over the weekend. With more than 10 of them in the family, the leader of the pack tried a few times to cross the road despite the heavy traffic.  According to the article, the otters, which were squeaking, turned around twice as they realised it was not the right time to cross yet. We bet it must have been nerve-wrecking for everyone viewing this, especially the last part where a yellow CityCab taxi nearly couldn't stop in time for them. Thankfully, all of them made it across eventually.

    Unmarked Mazda 3 Traffic Police car nabs Malaysian bike

    Now this is one heartening sight! Our local police force is working hard to catch bad-behaving vehicles on our roads! Seen on SG Road Vigilante is this video of an unmarked Traffic Police vehicle zooming up fast on the AYE towards Tuas to catch a motorbike on 13th of December 2020. We can't really see why the bike was being stopped but according to the source, it is a Malaysian-registered bike with a mini rear number plate.  While having such a number plate is an offence in our sunny island, we thought the police might also be catching the biker for a speeding offence or having a loud exhaust. As for the rest of us, we now know when you see a white Mazda 3, it might not be a Private Hire Vehicle but an Unmarked Traffic Police car!

    Lancer vs Sirocco - who would win in an illegal drag race

    Bored because you can't travel? Why not challenge your friends to a drag race and get fined under the Road Traffic Act?

    On 18th January, as seen on SG Road Vigilante, a group of approximately eight people were at this illegal drag race. Seems like there were five spectators, two racers and one starter.  It wasn't a very fair race because the starter's hand was blocking the Volkswagen Scirocco. It started later than the Mitsubishi Lancer, who saw a golden opportunity (his view not blocked by the starter) and raced ahead. Where's the sportsmanship, brother? 


    Though, if you ask me, I think this race wasn't about speed. The race track was short, and the cars were driving carefully. Yknow why? Cuz' slow and steady wins the race.

    Some Facebook users were hypothesizing other reasons for the gathering, while others bashed them for their apparent drag racing.
    Whatever it is, the uploader shouldn't have bao toh (read: sabotage) his friends. Actually, come to think of it, who was videoing this? Weren't there already eight people in the frame? Or also +1 cameraman? 

    Edit: Added in the original video source https://www.facebook.com/groups/sgroadshallofshame/permalink/1927162840764549/ for easier reference – leaving it to you guys to decide what this 'drag race' really is.

    Van tries squeezing through merging lane, gets kissed on the bumper instead!

    Is this another case of drivers having ego issues? Or was the driver of the Toyota Hiace simply not paying attention?   Posted on SG Road Vigilante's Facebook page is this video of two drivers exiting into the KPE via a merging lane.  We have no idea why would either driver would allow such a silly accident to happen to themselves. In our reckoning, the accident probably happened at less than 20km/h with the Hiace mini van slowing going into the rear of the Hyundai Elantra as the lane merges into a single one.  Is the trouble of needing to waste time and money to get both vehicles repaired worth it? We think not. Giving way to the other vehicle and/or paying attention on the road is a way smarter option in our opinion...
