Need a new chair for your home office but don't want a Secret Lab chair like most people do? 

Check out this very familiar-looking chair that you can now buy at a starting price of $100. Thanks to a local company that specialises in scrapping vehicles, you can now own a part of our public buses that have been prowling our roads for the last 10 or more years.

The company, Kim Li Huat, posted this simple and sleek Volvo B9TL CDGE chair that has been blessed with a new base on their company's facebook page, saying that if you wish to buy in bulk, the price even can be lowered.

For those who wonder where these seats came from, a quick search on the web showed that these Volvo buses have been plying on our roads for about 15 years (out of their 17-year statutory lifespan) and had their interior refreshed less than 3 years ago before they were taken out of service.

    Father and son almost get crushed by C-HR with p-plates

    TL;DR – A parked C-HR with p-plates suddenly accelerates and almost mauls a father and son at an open-air carpark. Things would have gotten ugly if they had been one second slower.     There can be miracles While some of us might not be believers, a recent video uploaded on Roads.sg might change your mind. The incident occurred on 10th September 2021. Here’s the 35-second video: A one-second difference between life and death In an open-air carpark, location unknown, a father and his son casually walk past a cam car. If you observe the video, you’ll notice a black Toyota C-HR directly opposite the cam car slowly inching forward as the father and son enter the frame. The C-HR then suddenly accelerates and crashes into the cam car just as the lucky duo clears the danger. If it had been a second earlier, the father and son would have been caught in the collision. Let’s address the elephant in the room I’m sure everyone noticed the p-plates on the C-HR. Could it be because of the driver’s inexperience?   Or it could have been a case of the driver talking on his phone? He was wearing his wireless earphones. And, if so, why wasn't his handbrake up? Online Chatter But, by 2040, no more manual car already. If everyone drives like this in 2040, scary eh! I’m just glad that by some miracle, a family did not lose a father and a son to a negligent driver.     --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Cyclists in two separate videos disregard the red light and experience instant ragret

    Within the past 24 hours, two unrelated cases of vehicles knocking over cyclists have surfaced on Facebook. The only thing constant in the equation? Both cyclists disregarded the red man and cycled across the road anyway. Both incidents took place yesterday (July 5), with the first one being at Choa Chu Kang and the second one at Sembawang. In the first video, a female driver was driving straight ahead across a road junction along Choa Chu Kang Dr after noticing that the light had turned green. However, she noticed that a cyclist had dashed out as she was accelerating, which led to her hitting the cyclist.   Take note: there is loud screaming and graphic content in the following videos.  In the second video, a taxi was seen performing a right turn at a road junction in between Sembawang and Mandai Road when it hits a cyclist that was crossing the road at a red light.  Despite the roads being busy in both videos, the cyclists thought that they were able to beat the red light and just YOLO-ed their way through. Honestly, if I were them, I would be in constant "ragret" over this one stupid decision.  Netizens' reactions It didn't take long for netizens to express their sentiments with regard to both incidents. As for the taxi driver (in the second video), many netizens shared their frustrations with the cyclist for not following the rules. We hope that all parties involved in both accidents are okay and will post any further updates if necessary.    --- 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.

    Inexperienced Mazda 3 driver shows us why we die die must have car insurance

    Another day, another joker on the road getting what he deserves for his reckless driving. What happened In the wee hours of the morning, a Mazda 3 driver is seen driving down Admiralty Road right beside a large garbage truck. Wanting to filter to his right, the car flashes its right indicator lights to signal its intention. This is when things start to go horribly wrong. Instead of letting the truck pass, the Mazda driver fails to check for safety and starts to drift to the right. The weird thing about his behaviour is that he actually slows down right in front of the large truck as his vehicle performs the lane change. As a result, the car ends up getting hit in the rear by the garbage truck and continues along the road for a while before coming to a stop. It is unclear if the Mazda driver had hit the brakes on purpose or by accident. Additionally, the fact that the Mazda kept going after getting hit could mean that the driver did not realise that he had been hit.  A great example of why all drivers die die must have insurance It is important to note that the Mazda 3 driver carries a P plate, which is a probationary license plate that should be put on display at the top-right portion of the front and back windscreens of new drivers. The plate can be taken down after a year of valid driving experience. As such, it is critical that all drivers, especially P-platers, have insurance in case of accidents like this. Annual premiums for car insurance typically start at $850, and the amount that you pay is determined by your age, your occupation, the amount of driving experience you have, your car model, and your claims history. For P platers and drivers below the age of 27, car premiums are through the roof as insurers deem these drivers to possess a higher level of risk of getting into accidents. Netizens' reactions P-platers, no matter the situation, there is no reason good enough to justify driving and switching lanes recklessly.
