Hitch driver apparently needs an aeroplane to be on time

Hitch driver apparently needs an aeroplane to be on time

According to Stomp, this guy booked a GrabHitch ride in Choa Chu Kang on Friday afternoon. He scheduled the ride for 3.15pm, but the driver sent a message to ask if it will be ok for him to arrive at 3.25pm. The passenger then asked if the driver could reach by 3.15pm instead but received a snide reply:

"I drive car not aeroplane"

The driver eventually cancelled the ride.

It seems like the passenger is a little demanding. There are many variables that affect travel time on the road - there could have been traffic, the driver might also have been some distance away and hence required more time to reach. In such a situation, the best solution is to just wait - if you cancel this ride and book another, chances are he won't reach by 3.15 also mah.

Understandably, GrabHitch is a carpooling service, where drivers who are going the same way, offers to pick up passengers for a small sum. As such, it is kind of an unwritten rule that one shouldn't expect to receive five-star chauffeur service.

I think the most important takeaway from this incident is that communication is key. 

The driver could have replied nicely, and the passenger should have been more understanding and the whole thing wouldn't have been an issue.

And hor, I also don't have an aeroplane, but I still can reach work (quite) on time leh.

    BMW biker scares the crap out of a jaywalking uncle by almost crashing into him

    When you are driving/riding and someone is in your path, you give way or slow down right? Well...not for this guy. Watch this 10-second clip to see his hazardous riding: The incident took place along Sims Avenue. Cam bike's intentions backfired The cam bike submitted the video above, intending to shame the elderly pedestrian for jaywalking. However, things took a turn when netizens started calling out the cam bike for his dangerous behaviour, and some even roasted him.  What happened? The cam bike rode along Sims Avenue at a relatively fast speed (compared to the other vehicles around him). After he rode past a lorry, an elderly pedestrian in striped clothing can be seen crossing the road from afar.  But instead of giving way to the jaywalker, the cam bike rode extremely close to him ON PURPOSE and gave the uncle a rude hand gesture. Netizens' comments  Self-owned, nuff said. Motorists like the cam biker should go to hell. Straight-up facts. It doesn't hurt for cam bike to slow down or give way to the elderly pedestrian.  Also, can you imagine how shook the uncle was at that point in time? If it were me, I might have to change my underwear.   --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Dumb YP with no driving license, argues about road regulations

    An entitled YP passenger of an idle Renault Megane Diesel got into a heated debate with an uncle when he was told to turn off the engine. Here's the video for your reference: According to the Facebook post, a man was sitting at a coffee shop when he noticed the parked Renault Megane Diesel had its engine on for more than 15 minutes. This led him to approach the passenger, telling him to turn the engine off while waiting in the car. However, the man was met with hostility as the YP passenger alighted from the car and started filming him. As seen in the video, the passenger repeatedly questions the man on his authority and mentions no laws state that it is illegal to “leave the car on”. He then continuously asks the man if he has taken his theory test, which provoked the man even more. The irony of it all The man corrects the passenger angrily and tells him to leave the area upon finding out that the YP passenger doesn't even have a driving license! According to the Environmental Protection and Management (Vehicular Emissions) Regulations, it is an offence to leave the engine of a motor vehicle running while it is stationary for reasons other than traffic conditions. If convicted in court, first-time offenders will be fined up to $2,000, while repeat offenders will be fined up to $5,000.

    BlueSG car uses instant torque to squeeze itself ahead on merging lanes

    A BlueSG car recklessly speeds up in a merging lane and forces the camcar driver (with his pregnant wife in the car) to swerve and prevent a collision. Like all electric vehicles, the Bollore Bluecar comes with instant torque which allows the vehicle to accelerate quicker than internal combustion engine (ICE) cars. You can clearly see the disparity in acceleration in the video. Let's look at some R&R (not rest and relaxation) But, at the end of the day, it doesn't matter how fast you can accelerate. There are rules and regulations that need to be adhered to. According to the Highway Code: In the case of this video, the camcar driver has the right of way as he was in front of the BlueSG car, which was on the yielding lane. Furthermore, there was no need for the BlueSG car to overtake the camcar as the road was not congested and there was no junction ahead.  However, there is the possibility that the BlueSG driver was rushing to save a few dollars due to the company’s rental plans. According to BlueSG, users are charged $0.36 per minute during their rental on top of a monthly fee, which explains why BlueSG drivers are typically seen rushing around all the time. Netizens' reactions Careless driving in Singapore racks up a fine of $200 and 6 demerit points. Just FYI.

    Orange Lamborghini driven dangerously, skids on Raffles Ave

    In this video that is circulating on Facebook,  an Orange Lamborghini is seen to be driven dangerously on Raffles Ave, and is seen to be skidding across an intersection and cutting an SBS bus while doing a left turn. According to the timestamp in the footage, this took place on Saturday evening (8 May). Watch the video here:   While attempting the right turn, the sports car lost control, skidded, then bounced off the kerb before accelerating off.   Clearly, it looks like a wet day and the roads are slippery - We urge all drivers in these conditions to drive with extra care especially while turning at a junction. Later on, the Lamborghini driver made a dangerous, and illegal left turn, cutting an SBS bus at a traffic light intersection. This caused the bus to brake abruptly to avoid a collision with the italian sports car. Source: Google Maps Here's what netizens on Facebook have to say about the incident:
