Scirocco speed demon zig-zags between vehicles on PIE

Scirocco speed demon zig-zags between vehicles on PIE

Here's a video uploaded by SG Road Vigilante showing a speeding Volkswagen Scirocco zig-zagging along PIE, which also reminds me of another infamous incident caused by a speeding Kia Cerato last weekend.

This happened along the Upper Bukit Timah Exit with another unrecognisable car seemingly chasing closely behind him.

Putting other road users in danger

The Scirocco driver then channeled his inner Alonso to manoeuvre between a tipper truck and a silver Van, overtaking both vehicles in one go. Although i have to admit that this was a well executed move, this act of weaving in and out of traffic puts other road users in danger.

Reckless or dangerous driving

Many drivers with common sense would already know this, but i'd just like to remind everyone that anyone driving a motor vehicle recklessly, or at a speed or manner which is dangerous to the public, is guilty of an offence.

Netizens on Youtube has some comments to say about this:

CNY is coming. So please ladies and gentlemen, do drive safe.

Looks like his MIL was in the car behind chasing him.

Good switcharoo and he lost her.

Nowdays cannot do this kind of stunt. Almost every car has dashcam and prone to kena trend. Well that's what they are saying now. Kena trend. [laugh]

It's quite well executed as no other vehicles jam braked or swerved to avoid it. 

Even if reported to TP, the only outcome will be failure to use turn signal. Either a courtesy letter reminder or $100 fine 😂

yeah....well executed until it is not. The BMW5 driver who flipped over also thought he can do a good one. He wants to die, no problem. But don't endanger others life.

If these racers are my friends especially the one driving the VW, I am gonna ask him what prize he won for winning the race. 1st prize TOTO ticket or just some stupid act because of his ego.

MIL was in the back seat, and he could shake her off no matter how fast he drove.

Thought there was an infamous VW Sirocco previously too...

And no, the way the vehicles were doing, it is not just a simple offense of lane-change without signaling. It will be dangerous driving + all applicable rules compounded together...

I am pretty sure VW is speeding but the move is well executed as noone, including the VW had to brake. 

Better than the many drivers out there (usually law abiding) who due to their kayu skills caused all those accidents.  Slow drivers who suka suka brake are a dime a dozen on my roads.

Haiz. Sometimes ask myself, what is worse. This type of higher speed driving, or goondu driving below speed limit not paying attention, looking at mobile phone and driving a car on underinflated or botak tyres?

Yes yes, both are jialat but focus by regulators/media is only on one.

    Malaysian truck driver might have escaped a fine and demerits by some miracle

    So a quick disclaimer before we continue - We don't know what might happen after the Traffic Police gets alerted to this video evidence, or they might have even stopped the truck driver after the video got cut off. But what's happening in the video seems rather peculiar.  Shared on SG Road Vigilante's page is this video of a Malaysian truck doing more than 90km/h on lane 1 on PIE heading towards Tuas on the 22nd of February 2021. Sometime later in the video, the Traffic Police closed in in their car and it looked like they had the intention to notify the Scania truck of its offence.  Naturally, most of us would go "haha the truck sure get it from the Police!" but no, nothing happened! What a miracle for the truck driver. But, as I mentioned at the start of this post, the Traffic Police might act after watching the video. It's a little too early to celebrate yet Mr Truck Driver. Here's what some netizens had to say about the matter. What do we think? Well, if he got off without any punishment, he should consider himself lucky and not do it again.

    Man prowls entire carpark and did extensive research on kerb weights after being denied season parking

    That's a really long wall of text, so I'll sum it up for you. The owner of a 2011 Mercedes Viano was denied a HDB Multi-Storey Car Park season parking with the main reason being the excessive weight (more than 2,000kg) of the vehicle.   So what does he do? He proceeded to spend some time checking out the various cars parked in HDB MSCP and came up with a short list of cars that weigh more than 2,000kg. If you look at this excerpt from HDB's website regarding the parking restrictions for commercial vehicles (the Mercedes Viano is predominantly used as commercial passenger buses), it is a straightforward rule that commercial vehicles parking in a sheltered car park must not exceed 2,000kg. With the rationale behind it being safety and environmental concerns as well as "efforts to preserve the character and ambience of residential estates"... Hmm, maybe HDB just find the Viano too ugly to be parked in a housing estate? In all seriousness though, this netizen has a point, this issue likely stemmed from outdated regulations. These regulations were probably established back when commercial vehicles weighing more than 2,000kg are agricultural behemoths.   Maybe HDB should look into updating its regulations? in the meantime, I suppose this guy should get rid of the Viano and get something else, like one of the cars he mentioned instead?

    Mazda 3 with expired road tax rages on camera car

    We start off the week with video that happened a week or so ago but only started to trend recently. Seen on SG Road Vigilante, is this particular Mazda 3 driver that became so triggered that he had to get out of his car with vulgarities spewing out of his mouth non stop.  Like all road rage incidents though, it takes two to clap. Thankfully, the camera car driver was honest enough to show what he did that made the Mazda 3 driver so pissed. We could see him honking the Mazda as the road merge at the junction along Bedok North Road, before speeding past the Mazda which also tried to filter into the middle lane due to construction works ahead.  Those two actions probably triggered the Mazda 3 driver bad and when he got to block the camera car, he made sure he was heard by the camera car. Probably not wanting to blow this up, the camera car drove off after the heated exchange of words but the Mazda 3, whose road tax had also expired, gave chase and did some not-very-nice gestures when he caught up... Let us know what are your thoughts on this case of road rage!

    Is this guy trying to be police or funny?

    Hello nieces and nephews, this is your uncle Koba here again. Hello. Today, we have this guy who is trying too hard to fulfil his boyhood dream of becoming traffic police. Spotted on Road.sg, this Honda ST1300 - a road touring bike which is kinda familiar to our SPF choice of weapon, the Yamaha XJ900T. Let's have a look. Wait a sec. Fuiyoh! He is a whole package! A long long time ago, there must be young handsome traffic police who gave him a helping and makes him remember how cool traffic police is and since then, he got inspired to becoming one. Alrighty, so nieces and nephews, please take a second look at our traffic police when you spotted one. It may and may not be one.
