Mercedes comes up with a unique style of U-turn by crashing through the centre divider

Mercedes comes up with a unique style of U-turn by crashing through the centre divider

Well kids, welcome to Monday, and to start a new week we have this video that is proof that not all crazy and or whacky events that take place in Singapore necessarily have to happen in Yishun. For once, the east gets to have its own slice of the action, right along East Coast Road. 

To be frank, this writer likes the way the Mercedes looks. From the video, it looks to be a C-Class with some black wheels on white paint. Good combo. But that's where the good part ends.

First of all, how were you driving to even make a u-turn at that spot anyway? Lest this writer forgets, "creating a space for a u-turn by crashing through the central dividing fence" wasn't in the basic or final theory handbook in driving school. If there was a recent addition like that, please let this writer know.

It's a pity the video doesn't show how the Mercedes got themselves in that spot to begin with, but this writer will say that the driver is very determined to get his/her car out of that spot, despite all that expensive scraping noise that is sure to result in some interesting patterns and or damage for the undercarriage. Also, the Mercedes also completely ignored the man in a grey shirt who was walking towards the car, perhaps in a futile bid to find out what was going on or just to render some help.

It is somewhat amusing to this writer that the Mercedes just accelerates away, leaving behind a mess of strewn metal fencing and a bevy of confused onlookers. Takes a real boss to do that, driving away nonchalantly with that "I can't be bothered with you lot" attitude. Here's hoping at least someone got the plate on that Mercedes as well, so that he can be asked...

But honestly people. Don't drive stupid. Almost everyone has a smartphone today and so many cars have dash cameras. Do something silly, stupid, idiotic or all of the aforementioned and you may stand a chance to appear here on this very blog. Or any of the associated Facebook pages dedicated to, uh, giving you your 15 minutes in the spotlight for horrendous driving. 

And if that Mercedes driver does read this, would you care sending some photos over of how your undercarriage looks like now? Just for kicks.

 It was  not whether he or she behaved like a real boss or not. And not whether there was any stupidity in it. Maybe, there is a reason to get the F out of there ASAP, if not he or she maybe in for big time if kana caught.

    Comparison - Honda Vezel & Suzuki Jimny went head on! (This is not a car review btw)

    When coming to a car comparison, one of the most important aspect that we will mention is drivability. And today we have two goondus testings out the drivability at CTE on 1st of March. As you can see, the Honda Vezel make the first move at the start of the video cutting from the third lane to the second lane making the Suzuki Jimny braking hard. And with the ALLGRIP 4Wheel drive technology from Suzuki, it easily helps the Suzuki Jimny conquer the Honda Vezel back. As he is again on pole position. While not admitting defeat, the Honda Vezel instantaneously retaliate by activating its i-VTEC that unleash all 130bhp from the engine. Overtaking the poor ComfortDelGro cab and scaring the Suzuki Jimny with a Dom's stare. These two goondus had made the CTE their battleground lasting for more than 1min 30sec. Which fortunately there is no accident involved during this time. Watch the full video here.   I am assuming that these goondus have continued the dogfight even after they exited the expressway. For our readers out there, let bygones be bygones. Hatred breed hatred. So when there is a car cutting your lane, just be gracious about it. Let's keep our road safe and our car free from an accident! BTW, listen to the video with volume on, the dramatic background sound makes the video even funnier. 🤣

    Mercedes C-Class hogs sheltered driveway while it rains, lady in car behind explodes

    Today on "Things you thought would happen but instead went differently", we have here 2 cars who both want to drop off and or pick up their passengers at some condominium. As some context to the title, the video was taken on 10 January 2021, and the weather has been pretty cool these past few days, slightly chilly even. So you might think the weather would perhaps let people have a bit more "chill" in their daily outlook on life too.   Oh, you naïve thing, you.    If there is one thing we can always count on, is that Singaporeans can almost always be counted on the overreact, grumble and whine about incidents that are perhaps inconsequential to most of us but of utter and outright importance to these snowflakes. So yes, the Mercedes is hogging the pick up/drop off point. Maybe the car behind the Mercedes did try to gain the attention of the Merc's occupants, but the occupants in the Mercedes perhaps didn't realise it. Either way, lady, do you really need to jump out of your car like your seat is on fire, brandishing your phone to record the offending party's "transgressions"? If you listen to the video clearly, the way the lady slams her door with such conviction like she's on a warpath while taking the video makes this writer feel like she's taking this issue a little too seriously. That said, the Mercedes isn't completely innocent either. Yes, we all know that you are waiting for someone to arrive before you go. But if the driveway only has so much space, just make a loop so you don't obstruct the car behind you. Let's be a little more gracious. No one likes getting wet unnecessarily, we all know that, but people don't exactly enjoy being delayed either. Give and take, live and let learn, you scratch my back I scratch yours, do you see where this is going? Also, lady in the Mercedes, your sarcastic tone does you absolutely no favours. Driving one loop to let others alight first burns a lot of petrol, is it. If you can afford a late-generation Merc, don't say you can't afford the cost of petrol.    As Mahatma Gandhi once said, "To lose patience is to lose the battle"   But to the lady who is recording this whole thing. Just, uh, wow. Very mature response there, auntie. Perhaps try talking nicely to people in the future if you want something, even if you are extremely irritated. It also helps if you don't actively try to film the whole incident down like some wannabe paparazzi. People don't like having cameras thrust into their faces without rhyme or reason. If the shoe was on the other foot, how would that make you feel? Also, auntie, please don't go and knock a car that isn't yours (1:28 in the video), people really don't like that. Don't cause more trouble than what you need for yourself because you never know how it could come back to bite you. It's incidents like this that makes this writer believe that no one actually remembers Singa the Courtesy Lion or the message he was trying to push.  Come on people, everything Singa stood for is literally in his name. It can't get any clearer than that. No wonder Singa quit, because no matter how hard he tried, perhaps he just could never get across to the kind of people in the video above 🤷‍♂️. Just chill, everyone. 2020 didn't kill us, and 2021 just started. A little patience never killed anyone. And also it is a little too premature in the year for over-the-top nonsense so let's all just try to get along for now. For now.

    Not even kerbs can stop a BlueSG in its path

    As shared by SG Road Vigilante on its Facebook page, this driver entered a Multi Storey Car Park at Punggol, only to see a BlueSG turning out of the lot and heading straight at him. Well, this wouldn't have been a problem if they were on a two-way road... Understandably, both drivers stopped in their tracks, stunned for a moment. Where is the BlueSG trying to go anyway? Right, just hop over that kerb and reach for the exit like there isn't a gigantic obstacle painted in striking yellow and black... I've always seen BlueSG cars driving fast and sometimes dangerously on the expressways, I chalk it up to their strictly duration-based charging - the faster you reach your destination, the less you pay. Maybe that's what this driver's trying to do? These comments brought up an important point, indeed, it seems unlikely anyone would damage their own car this way. But, hey, don't go right out and rent one to fulfill your dream of driving like Dominic Toretto, you'll still be liable for traffic offences, and will have to foot some hefty repair bills if you damage the BlueSG! Driver of the BlueSG, if you are reading this, do yourself a favour and check out their terms and conditions.

    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!
