Nicolas Cage, is that you?

What went down

On 17th May 2021, a ghost lorry was spotted rolling across Yio Chu Kang Road without a driver and crashing into the barricade across the street. If you'd like to see the full video, you can check it out here.

Anyways, when I first saw this clip, my initial reaction was:

But afterwards, I realised that there is a possibility that the lorry might not have had its handbrake engaged while its being parked.

Even so, why would one leave a heavy vehicle alone in the middle of the road? Where is the driver? Is the lorry meant to be there in the first place?

Luckily, there were no traffic or pedestrians in sight when this incident happened.

Netizens' reactions

While there is no information yet on where the driver was or why the lorry was left alone, it didn't take long for netizens to joke about this being the new 'driver-less' or autonomous vehicle in Singapore.

Maybe it's another one of Elon Musk's experiments.

I mean, the 7th month is approaching soon LOL.

I think this is the most plausible explanation as well.

What do you think? Is this due to a forgetful driver or is there another 'force of nature' behind this?

    The first Nissan GT-R to travel from Singapore to Mount Everest is up for sale on sgCarMart

    In 2016, a 59-year-old Singaporean engineer drove his Nissan GT-R for 16,000 km from Singapore to the Everest Base Camp in Tibet and back. Now, the legendary vehicle is up for sale on sgCarMart! A grandfather of one, Mr Hoong, wanted to test the limits of the GT-R as stated by Nissan. The car manufacturer claimed that the vehicle is a supercar that can be driven by anyone, anytime, anywhere. Nicknamed Godzilla, the 2008 GT-R only acted up only once throughout the entire odyssey. According to the Straits Times, Mr Hoong took 22 days to arrive at the Everest Base Camp (North) with a Tibetan guide. He then took another 20 days to drive back to Singapore, clocking 16,000 km and 2,600 litres of fuel. Additionally, Mr Hoong made several modifications to the car for the journey. The full list can be found in the listing. Being the first of its own to travel to Everest from Singapore and back, the Nissan GT-R is currently going for $218,000 on sgCarMart. With 7 years of COE left, the 2008 Sports Car spits out 473 bhp of power with an engine cap of 3,799 cc. Equipped with a premium Bose sound system, the vehicle still has its original grey seats and is in tip-top condition.  If you're looking to own a piece of national history, check out the full listing here! *This is not a sponsored ad.

    Fast and Furious Mercedes E63 and A200 Playing Tag At Simei

    Hello! Today we have two Mercedes-Benzes (E63 & A200) engaging in what looks like a dangerous game of tag at Simei Road. That's TOO FAST to be safe driving. Imagine if the first car jams its brakes, the second car is screwed seven ways till Sunday.

    This video even managed to stir up my anxiety - I felt like I was the one being chased.  It's not clear whether the two drivers know each other. Perhaps they're rushing to get to Jewel for their Beauty in a Pot reservation? It is near Simei after all. Or is it a case of road rage? Hmm questions, questions. 

    Netizens have lots to say. Some of the comments savage AF.

    So, road rage or friends? What do you think?

    Reckless bare-bodied 'Ang Moh' cyclist harasses motorists along River Valley road

    TL;DR – Ang Moh cyclist harasses Lexus RX by cycling in the middle of the road, obstructing its path and swerves between cars dangerously.   Here’s another reason LTA should come up with some sort of SOP for cyclists to make them accountable for their actions. In this 70-second video, you can see the male cyclist cycling recklessly to harass the Lexus driver. Putting not just himself but other motorist in danger. Cyclist vs SUV The cyclist blocks a Lexus RX on the first lane along River Valley Road near Liang Court. Honestly, I’ve watched the video like twenty times, and I still have no idea whatafrak the cyclist is doing. 1.       He’s cycling without placing his hands on the handlebars of the bicycle 2.       His chest and stomach are exposed (eww?) 3.       He raises his right hand as if indicating he’s turning right, but he doesn’t turn right Where it happened Just in case you’re a little disoriented and unsure where this incident took place. What’s the trigger? It looks like the cyclist was trying to indicate that he wanted to turn right on Mohamed Sultan Road, but the Lexus did not allow him to do so. In response, the cyclist gives the SUV a shove and dangerously swerves through the cars in front to get ahead of the Lexus and block the driver’s path. Chitter Chatter It’s just a matter of time. There are cyclists out there who abide by the laws. Please don’t ‘sabo’. Thanks.

    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:
