In this video, The Suzuki Swift driver is driving on a downhill course along South Buona Vista Road, also known among the driving community as as 99 Bends or "Gao Zhup Gao Wan" in Hokkien.

Watch the video here:

The driver loses control after a long left curve, which has a decreasing radius that requires drivers to slow down.

As seen above: Speed regulating strips to tell the driver to slow down.

The Suzuki Swift seems to be catching up to the car infront, but it lost control at the end of this curve, then skidded and crashed into the barrier just opposite the bus stop.

Driver was heard saying,

"stupid car in front fault lah. He drive so slow, I had to slow down and not enough heat in my tyres to get the grip and that's why I crashed. If only no car and I went faster I would have been OK."

:D

Need additional attention in the strip of road, especial in the night. This strip is more for skill and not speeding!

the camera car also following very closely too in order to show us the footage! so either all speeding down the slope or all driving within 99 bend speed limited then the Swift driver just lousy? 

so which one huh? cameraman you speeding down the slope too?!!?!? LOL :D

Then back to Tyres question, Suzuki Swift is such a small nimble car, to crash like this likely using non mainstream performance Tyres!

Noob. Earlier downshift with rev match + left-foot braking with balanced throttle through the decreasing radius corner might have saved his ass. Oh well.

No need all lah. Just put a piece of toufu on the dashboard, and it can immediately increase driver skills level to MAX. 😁

    Is this guy on the bike hot or is he hot?

    Is the weather really that warm that you need to ride without clothes? This motorcyclist thinks so. Spotted on SGRV's Facebook and many other sources, a short-hair motorcyclist can be seen riding nude by the camera bike traveling along PIE towards changi. The nude rider then left the highway via the Bedok North Rd exit with the camera bike following closely, allowing us to get a closer look at this bewildering sight. Thankfully, the video that has been uploaded to the web doesn't show his private parts...

    Man causes a long queue by pumping petrol 'machiam' like he in JB

    Remember the good old days where you could bring your whole family across the border and enjoy everything our neighbouring country has to offer? With the affordable prices of petrol, topping up your gas tank before coming back to Singapore was something no one would skip. But there are some people who go a little too far to save a couple of dollars. Like this! 😂 Which brings us to video below. I'm scratching my head as to why this driver is trying to ensure that every cubic meter of fuel is stored inside his car. Given that our petrol prices in Singapore are exorbitant now.  A little bit of Myth busting Myth - Do I really save money if I am able to top up my car to the brim? 🤔 One of the Quora-ist mentions that it is insignificant to have the petrol tank pump to the brim. My personal take on the matter The whole shaking action is unnecessary. Once you hear the nozzle click, it means that the next time you'll have to refuel would be in 5 to 6 days, give or take. Shaking the car does not mean you'll extend that time significantly. Furthermore, over-filling your fuel tank could potentially result in damage to your vehicle’s charcoal cannister, which is part of its vapour recovery or Evaporative Recovery System.   If you really want to save fuel, drive like a saint and don't over-rev your car when driving. Always plan your route ahead and leave the house early so you will not drive like a madman.  Peace out! ✌️

    Caught an Audi A8 with zero road etiquette along Lower Delta Road

    I guess money can't buy proper road etiquette, can it? On 5th May 2021, a short video was posted on Facebook of an Audi A8 driver driving recklessly along Lower Delta Road. It's so bad that I even experienced some serious second-hand embarrassment from watching it.  For those of you who cannot stomach the video, I am going to provide a play-by-play description of the incident below. So, we start off with the camcar driver, who is innocently drives along the road and slows down when approaching a red light at a traffic junction. He stops behind a black Audi A8, which continues to inch forward past the white line with total disregard to the red light. The driver continues to try his luck and even attempts to turn right while there's traffic coming from both sides on the adjacent road. As if realising that there's no way the universe will let it turn right, the Audi suddenly reverses and almost hits the camcar.  Once the lights turn green, the Audi wastes no time zooming ahead without stopping at the right turn pocket. The driver positions the Audi dangerously near oncoming vehicles as if asking for an accident to happen.  The Audi edged so far into the lane with oncoming traffic that it even made a silver vehicle stop dead in its tracks to avoid a collision. To carry on forward, the silver car had to manoeuvre itself around the Audi in an awkward fashion. If you thought that was all, think again. There's more! When the Audi driver saw an empty pocket of space, it sped off to complete the right turn, but there were two oncoming vehicles that could have crashed into the Audi if they had gone any faster. Netizens quickly took to the comments to voice their opinions (with some speculating that the Audi driver is either drunk, high or does not have a driving license): Simplified translation: 'You have to wait for death if you want to reincarnate, what's the rush?' What do you guys think of this road menace?

    Tiny pothole wrecks a BMW 2 Series convertible

    TL:DR – A BMW 2 Series convertible goes over a small, unassuming pothole/manhole that causes its rear end to flip up, lose some parts from its undercarriage and swerve into another lane.   It's incredible how a small pothole/manhole can cause thousands of dollar's worth of damage to a car. Here's an example recorded on a video forwarded many times on WhatsApp groups. From the footage, we know that this incident happened on 11th April 2021, Sunday around 5pm. As to where this is, I have a feeling it might be somewhere around Woodlands. But, if you have any idea, do let me know, and I'll update the article accordingly to warn fellow road users where to avoid. Update: Thank you everyone who identified the location. It's in Yishun.   Poor BMW If you hit the pause button upon the point of impact, you'll notice that bits and pieces fall out from the undercarriage of the 2 Series. That’s as unlucky as this guy I reckon those parts are not going to be cheap to replace or repair. The pothole/manhole This image circulated together with the video. I'm assuming the cam car driver got out of the car and snapped a photo of the pothole/manhole.
