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?

    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.

    It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a flying spare tyre on the SLE!

    You can add this to the list of weird sightings on Singapore's expressways, including reversing on an expressway and riding a motorcycle in the nude.  Watch the video to find out what happened: This incident occurred on the Seletar Expressway (SLE). What happened? When this mishap took place, the cam car was behind a white Subaru Forester, cruising on lane 1 of the expressway. It was a pleasant and smooth drive until the Subaru Forester drove over the tyre, sending it flying directly towards the cam car and smashes right onto the cam car's bonnet. *That Subbie certainly do be flexing its SUV capability* Moments later, the cam car skilfully filters from lane 1 to the left shoulder of the expressway after spotting someone who seems to be looking for something underneath his van 🤔 Netizens' comments That would be disastrous. Also, it was lucky that the tyre did not smash into the cam car's windshield. It could end up as an accidental PR publicity for Subaru, who knows? It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt... On a side note... In such a situation, what are the possible actions cam car could take against the culprit? Would insurance coverage be applicable?   --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Honda Stream cuts through traffic on PIE like a slippery ‘Orang Minyak’

    TL;DR – Video footage of a Honda Stream cutting through tight pocket of spaces on the Pan Island Expressway (PIE) makes one think of a particular Malay supernatural character.   What is an Orang Minyak? For the benefit of people who are not familiar with the term, the direct translation for ‘Orang Minyak’ is ‘Oily man.’ Image by Deviant Art It is a supernatural being with a strong coat of oil/grease that can slip through any cracks or holes in your home. Back to the Honda Stream Like the Orang Minyak, the Honda stream in this minute-long video slips through small pockets of space between cars like butter. Here’s the video:   Hold up, can an MPV do that? Well, the classification of the Honda Stream is technically a COMPACT MPV, but that doesn’t mean it’s small. Image by sgCarMart.com The only reason it could manage such a feat - The other motorists let it. At this moment here. And here. If the cam car or the car in front had decided to f#$% around with the Honda Stream, they could have accelerated, and the Stream would have hit them for a nice insurance pay out. Online Chatter There could be another story here. But imagine if the driver had hit other motorists. Wouldn't the emergency have escalated into an enormous $hit show??     --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Shame! Shame! Cheapo Honda Fit driver gets confronted for trying to tailgate out of a carpark

    The driver of a yellow Honda fit attempted to evade carpark payment but ended up failing and was confronted by the driver of the white Skoda Octavia he was tailgating instead. Here's the video   This incident took place at the carpark of Takashimaya.    In the video, the yellow Honda Fit tries to evade parking fees by tailgating a white Skoda Octavia. But the driver of the Octavia was having none of it and intentionally blocked the Honda Fit. Leaving it awkwardly stuck under the gantry arm.  The Skoda driver then exits his car in agitation while walking towards the Honda Fit to confront the driver.   Noteworthy: There is an ongoing promotion for 2 hours of free parking at Ngee Ann City, with no minimum spend.    Is it worth committing a parking offence over that few dollars?  If guilty of tailgating at an EPS exit gantry to avoid payment, the Honda Fit driver could face a $70 fine. Repeat offenders may be charged in court.   Netizens' comments The conclusion seems to be clear-cut 🤐  Undoubtedly, there has been an increased occurrence of payment evasion offences, with these offences being committed by tailgating the front vehicle.    Here are some recent cases of payment evasion:  Mitsubishi Lancer tailgating camcar out of carpark Hyundai Avante tailgating and got confronted by camcar Toyota Sienta tailgating camcar out of SuperBowl Jurong carpark However, the most unusual occurrence of payment evasion belongs to this purple Volkswagen Scirocco.  TBH, I am damn puzzled as to why the driver damaged his Scirocco to evade paying his carpark fees. The math just does not add up.   ---  Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.
