Motorcycle (with J license plate) cuts in from left, gets mowed down by Toyota Wish

This, kids, is why they kept telling us in driving school, don't abruptly cut in front of another motorist from the left, because the odds are they won't see you, and should it be a worst case scenario....

When everyone is at the lights, all seems well. The motorcycle on the left is a GrabFood rider, and he rides off straight. It is only after the GrabFood rider goes off a little in the distance, that the Malaysian motorcycle suddenly cuts in front of the Toyota Wish, who seems to not be wanting to turn but instead going straight. 

Now before you blame the Toyota for "why is he going straight in a turning lane", watch the video.

The lane the Toyota is on can be used to turn right or go straight. Now, I am assuming the Toyota did not turn on his right signal, indicating that he didn't want to turn at the junction, he wanted to go straight. But as the light turns green, the Malaysian motorcycle just dandily cuts in from the left and right in front of the Toyota, giving the driver barely any time to react. No matter how hard you slam on your brakes, people, cars don't cut to an immediate stop like they do in cartoons. It's called physics.

Now, I'm not pointing fingers at anybody, but I believe the Toyota didn't even realise that the motorcyclist was in front of him until it was too late. But really, the Malaysian motorcyclist should have known better than to cut in front of a car in such a carefree manner. Whether you're in JB or not, I don't think most drivers would expect a motorcycle to sudden appear in front of them and prepare to turn right as one is heading straight. Ultimately, let's just hope that everyone involved in the accident is all right.

Rules, people. They exist for a reason.

No need to be so civilised, refusing to apportion blame and trying to appear even-handed. Blame falls entirely on the idiot jiu hiu kia motorcyclist. 

Look, this is my CAR forum. If you visit that retarded SG Road Vigilante site (with its inbred dumbass of an admin and moronic mods), you'll see they take every opportunity to slam cars and four-wheeled vehicles while sayang-ing motorbikers. Tia gong their "membership gang" is biased because they're mostly crotch rocketeers. Can't afford cars. Red eye, green eye, whatever. 

So given that this is entirely the retarded, dangerous, inconsiderate biker's fault, call a spade a spade, yeah?!

    ComfortDelGro taxi driver whips out metal pipe during road rage

    We thought ComfortDelGro taxi drivers should be the most well-mannered taxi drivers on our island based on service standards, but this driver's actions made us stop and think. What made us think otherwise? This video of a very pissed-off taxi driver confronting the cam car driver for sounding his horn at him. Rewinding back to how it all started, the cam car can be heard sounding his horn at the taxi driver after a passenger gets off at a sheltered crossing. The taxi driver then proceeds to move off slowly, triggering the cam car driver to toot his horn in impatience.  The taxi driver does not react to the first horn which leads to a few more horns from cam car. This is where it gets interesting. The taxi driver's pissed off at this point, he takes his time to slowly drive into the carpark and stops on the second level to confront the cam car driver. We don't really know what happened after the taxi driver got off his taxi since most of the clip is on mute. Thankfully, no one got hurt in this road rage incident.  Could this have been avoided if the cam car just overtook the taxi at the shelter? Let us know! Not an isolated incident That is not the end of the story though. Someone else has also been a victim to the same taxi driver's road rage.

    This BlueSG driver 'suka suka' crossed double white lines like a boss 🤦‍♂️

    As much as I like to eat my char siew rice at Fatty Cheong @ ABC market (not sponsored), I also like to diss all the irresponsible BlueSG drivers out there.  Today, we have a YP BlueSG driver dangerously crossing a double white line at the exit of an expressway.  Remarkable driving? I beg to differ. What is a double white line? What's the penalty? For driving without due care or reasonable consideration - Charged in court, up to $1,000 fine or imprisonment for up to 3 years or both (first offence) and a ban from driving for at least 2 years.   Here's the full video. And for folks who want to rant about goondus crossing double white lines, we have a dedicated thread for this! #proMCF #MCFHuat

    Lexus GS300 doing his rendition of sway dancing while nearly kissing the wall, all with an expired road tax

    You know, usually when I think of swaying side-to-side, I think of something like this.  Side-to-side motion, everyone looking good and enjoying themselves. However, when it comes to our local roads, swaying side-to-side usually means this.... Yup. Someone new is getting their 15 minutes of fame today. First of all, a Lexus GS300? I'm giving you props for that as I personally quite like that car. After all, a creamy 3.0-litre V6 from Toyota producing 245bhp and 310Nm of torque in something that comfortable is nothing to sneeze at. What I unfortunately cannot commend you on is your driving, because not only is this Lexus swaying back and forth plus in and out of their lane, they damn near kissed the wall as well.  Looks like the Lexus just barely missed the wall too, the lucky bugger. My fellow motorist, if you are feeling rich and dare to risk damage to your car like that, would you mind donating it to me instead. There are a lot of things I would do with that money, starting with not driving like you so I wouldn't have to risk expensive bodywork to my car. Seriously, if you're tired or unable to drive for whatever reason, DON'T DRIVE. Do you know that you can be just as complicit for tired driving just as you are for drunk driving? When you are tired, your reactions are slow and dulled, and you are unaware of what's going on around you, thus making yourself a danger not only to yourself, but also to other road users. Research has shown that driving while tired is almost as good as driving under the influence of alcohol. Either way, it's not going to end well for you because you aren't in full control of your vehicle, making you even more susceptible to other users on the road.  But, there is still one more thing with this Lexus. How is it possible to not realise that your road tax has been expired for over 3 months? Either you have ignored all the notifications sent you with regards to this issue, or you are just plain ignorant and refuse to pay your dues. Whatever it is, Lexus driver, due to your appearance online, people are reminding you that your road tax has expired a really long time ago, and this should be enough prompting for you to get your road tax renewed.  Being a considerate driver is more than just signalling, not road hogging, and having good road manners. It also entails not putting the other road users around you in danger because you are unable to drive properly, thus causing more danger not only to yourself but everyone around you on the road. It's already stressful enough to drive in Singapore. Don't give yourself a reason to end up on this blog even though we do enjoy writing about your stupidity!

    A miracle is what this Scirocco needs if it ever wants to see the road again

    Well, here we are again. Another day, and another story about a Volkswagen Scirocco being stupid again. Now don't get this writer wrong. The Scirocco is a nice little car, especially when it is done up nicely and not wrapped up in some ghastly chrome wrap with an obnoxious exhaust that blares through the neighbourhood at night. Fun fact, the Scirocco is unobtainium for American buyers due to Volkswagen never making it available there. And yet what do owners here do with their Sciroccos? Read on. From our, uh, fellow, uh, compatriots(?) over at SG Road Vigilante, we have here a Scirocco with its engine separated from the car. From the information provided, this took place somewhere in Woodlands yesterday night, 19/1/2021. Now, typically the place one would see an engine being out from the car would be at a workshop. And with this Scirocco being a Volkswagen product, this writer is willing to bet that an engine out service happens quite often.   Let's not digress. This isn't an automotive workshop, which there are quite a few of in Woodlands. This is a neighbourhood street. So how did this Scirocco end up being separated from its engine in the middle of a street? This writer is guessing the driver was feeling particularly lucky and decided to test the strength and integrity of the bus stop bollards. Now, this writer is not the biggest fan of LTA (far from it, in fact), but one thing that they have done right is the installation of these bollards at all bus stops and multiple traffic junctions in Singapore. Just think, those bollards are meant to stop a literal bus that weighs at least 10 tons with no passengers on board, so what is one silly little Scirocco going to do to it? And should you need some reference..... This Lotus stood no chance. And neither did this bus. Seriously, people, don't test how strong these bollards are. This writer isn't a betting man but he is more than willing to bet that your vehicle isn't going to be too drivable after kissing a bollard at speed. Which is presumably what the driver of the Scirocco was doing. Furthermore, speeding through neighbourhood streets? Does this driver actually have that little disregard for his/her life, let alone others? If you want to maim or kill yourself, by all means, but don't drag others down with you, especially on neighbourhood streets where human traffic tends to be higher. And judging by how parts of the car, not to mention the engine, are strewn all about the road and the bus stop, the Scirocco definitely hit the bollard at a significant rate of speed. It's quite amazing to see how the rest of the car still looks relatively intact. Now once again, this writer is not condemning all Scirocco owners. Just the ones who can't seem to keep themselves out of trouble and end up causing more trouble and inconvenience for everyone else. And not to speculate, but this most likely could be the handiwork of some "YP". Just saying, you never know. 🤷 Ultimately, it doesn't look like anyone was hurt in this accident. At least we hope not. The only "fatality" here is that Scirocco because the only way that car could ever possibly drive again would be nothing short of divine intervention. Or a seemingly bottomless wallet and a lack of common sense, whichever comes first. Drive safely people. There's a time and place for everything, but showing off and acting a fool on the roads, especially neighbourhood streets, there's never any time nor place for that.
