Hello nieces and nephews, Uncle Koba here! And Fuiyoh! This morning we have a very alert driver that is driving a very competent car that helps him dodging away an accident.

Very impressive. I really thought he cannot make it for the stop. Phew.

So. Let's go find out this car specs. I have found an exact same colour as the Volvo V60 on the video. However, there is a few variants which I cannot see from my naked eyes.

The curb weight is quite reasonable (heavy). And to top it off, the car is only putting out 120bhp. Very good. Slow car saves lives.

Nothing exceptional about the brakes, to be honest. It is a prompt reaction by the driver, and he went for maximal braking rather than attempting a swerve, like a lot of drivers would do. 

In other words (and repeat after me, children), "It's not the car, it's the driver". 😁

Volvo pilot's peripheral lookout is good. The brake lights were on when the Jeep was apparently quite far off the side.

That Jeep driver is a real knnbccb case. Hope got red light cam capture.

    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.

    Honda Fit gets caught in a battle of egos!

    Here's another battle of egos between two drivers.   Spotted on SG Road Vigilante is the video of a camera car going up against a Honda Fit that has a Private-hire decal. It also has a P-plate in case you didn't notice.  To cut to the chase, both drivers ended up facing each other on a single lane road that was filled with other vehicles illegally parked on one side. A not-very-pleased lady then got out of her Honda and went up to the camera car before giving him/her a piece of her mind. We don't hear or see anything from the camera car's end but we reckoned something happened, causing the lady to flash her middle finger before heading back into her Fit. Sadly, we don't get see how this silly battle of pride and ego ends in the video.  In our opinion, both drivers seemed foolish. Is it so hard to just give way so that everyone can move on? Let us know in the comments what you guys think!

    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...

    Now you know what caused the huge jam on PIE on 11th of Jan

    Anyone got stuck on PIE last evening for more than an hour and half?  A few of us in the team did so, no thanks to someone who swerved out at the last minute, causing an accident that required a huge cleaning-up effort from the authorities.  Thanks to SG Road Vigilante, we now know what caused the accident which happened at PIE's Steven Road exit in the direction of Jurong, at 630pm. While the accident itself didn't cause any serious injury, it is obvious that the Mazda 3 driver was at fault. According to the comments online, it does look like he or she was trying to avoid a frontal collision in his/her own lane by swerving into lane 2 but that unfortunately meant that the 2 motorcyclists that were lane-spliting, had to fall due to such a move. Kudos to both the tipper truck and the Malaysian van for being reactive to what was happening in front of them!
