Honda Shuttle takes a leap of faith and lane changes into a Truck

Honda Shuttle takes a leap of faith and lane changes into a Truck

So today we have our weirdest accident where the Honda Shuttle (David) decides to lane change into the path of a UD truck (Goliath) that weighs 20 tons. 🙄

Here's the recap.

Both vehicles try to change lane at the same time. I assume that both drivers are aware of the other's presence and both must have the "same thinking".

Honda Shuttle: Aiyah, I can pick up faster than the truck one.

UD Truck: I am bigger and I am at the right of way.

After the accident occurred, the honda owner came out of his car probably to confront the truck driver.

My personal take is this. p.s. This is my personal opinion, so take it with a pinch of salt.

I find that the fault lies on the Honda Shuttle driver, as he wants to avoid the left turn lane and he does not want to wait for traffic to clear before move off.

The truck clearly signals his intention of filtering left since the start of the video. Just stop and let the truck driver go lah! So difficult meh?

Here's the full video.

So ladies and gentleman, please drive with extra prudence especially during this period, if possible stay home and stay safe.

Anyway sidetrack a bit, there is a nice ban mian at ARC380  (where the accident takes place) very nice one. You guys can check it out. 😂 NOT A SPONSORED POST.

Always give more clearance before cutting in front of a truck. The shuttle is at the truck's build spot.

The shuttle driver was well aware of the truck. In fact he hesitated and hung around in the mid-lane change position for a fraction of a second. That's what caused the collision. If he had daringly completed the lane change promptly without hesitation, then the truck would not have tried to lane-change as well.

As it is, the truck driver saw the other driver's hesitation and thought that he changed his mind.

    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?

    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 Driver steals carpark lot successfully, but parallel parks like a clown

    TL;DR – BMW driver steals a parallel carpark lot from another BMW by edging headfirst into the small vacant lot. The result? Video footage of some crap parking.   Here’s a 47-second video of a Beemer stealing a carpark lot….from another Beemer! What’s happening? Here’s a rough breakdown of what’s happening. The 3 Series (car at the back) tailgates the 1 Series (car in front trying to park). Both their hazard lights are on. As the 1 Series tries to parallel park by reversing in, the 3 Series drives headfirst into the lot. Yes. Headfirst into a small parallel lot. The 1 series driver then comes out of the car to confront the 3 series driver (the conversation is inaudible, so we cannot tell what they’re saying to one another). What could have caused this? While we don’t know what happened before the recording starts, some people mention that the 1 Series could have been the culprit and not jump to conclusions. It’s a BMW. Not a VW. Head-in parallel parking I don’t know about you all, but it’s just cringy to watch. Yes, I understand the 3 Series is trying to get the lot before the 1 Series reverses in, but it doesn’t change the fact that it irks me, especially when you see the 3 Series stuck at an odd angle in the parallel lot. Online chatter Wah. This person raging siol. Are you the 1 Series driver? ‘B’rilliant. Honestly, most cars these days come with a dashcam installed. Try not to get caught doing stupid things on video so we don’t have to write about you.
