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

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:

Quote

Merging arrows are drawn on the road to give motorists advance warning that two traffic lanes are merging into one traffic lane. Alternate vehicles from the two lanes have the right-of-way into the single lane.

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.

Careless driving in Singapore racks up a fine of $200 and 6 demerit points. Just FYI.

I suppose LTA and the traffic police knows about the problem?

    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...

    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.

    How to steal a carpark lot like a professional a#$hole 👊👊👊

    So today, we have a video that highlights the ultimate Singaporean gangster driver.   Uncle Koba has watched this video more than ten times and still raging internally 😈 Unspoken rules of parking There are 'unwritten rules' when it comes to parking whether it may be at a HDB, condominium, shopping mall or wherever. A vehicle waiting to park can wait for a lot to open up within a 'three lot range' from the front and rear of his vehicle. This range varies from person to person but other drivers looking for parking space would usually leave a healthy distance between their car and yours. But, if you are a gangster driver like this Toyota Wish driver, all you need to do is spot an empty lot, head in and yell "Please move your car!" when confronted. Here's the video for you to rage at. Who does this? A#$holes. Only a@#holes do this. Hello a#$hole. You're famous now. The poor dude that wanted to park came out and confronted the Wish driver Here's a breakdown of their short conversation: Morale of the story Your time may be precious, but that doesn't mean that other people's time isn't. We should respect one another no matter what we do in life. If this happened to Uncle Koba, I might have just parked in front of him and ask him to wait for me to leave then he can leave. 😬 #angry

    BMW M5 caught speeding and beating a red light in Eunos

    A BMW M5 was caught speeding recklessly and beating the red light along Still Road on Wednesday (June 9) night. The 39-second clip shows multiple views of the speeding vehicle from a camcar that was at the traffic junction. According to the Road Traffic Act, drivers caught speeding will be awarded demerit points and a composition fine. After watching the video, there is no doubt that the BMW had exceeded the speed limit. Drivers who are caught exceeding the speed limit by more than 40km/h would receive 12 to 24 demerit points, along with a mandatory prosecution in court. Additionally, beating the red light will incur a fine of up to $400 and another 12 demerit points.  With the recent news of actor Gurmit Singh receiving an $800 fine for speeding, I had expected Singaporeans to be more mindful and to avoid speeding on empty roads. Netizens' reactions Honestly, the few minutes that you save on your trip is not worth the consequences that come along with it. Be it an exorbitant fine or a potentially fatal car accident, you would have wished that you didn’t speed in the first place.
