BMW M5 caught speeding and beating a red light in Eunos

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.

    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.

    Cyclist thinks protective gear makes him invincible, bus shows him otherwise

    It is always good practice to wear protective gear whenever you are cycling. However, being decked out in protective gear doesn't grant you superpowers or special protection against other road users/vehicles. Watch this short clip and find out what I mean: This incident occurred at a junction along Hougang Avenue 9. A blatant disregard for traffic law The traffic lights were green, which permitted the cam car and Bus 109 (travelling in the opposite direction) to proceed.  Despite having the right of way, the bus driver could be seen giving way to a pedestrian dressed in a white t-shirt before moving off. As the bus driver moves off, a cyclist riding from the pavement sped across the pedestrian crossing. This "genius" did not conform to the red man signal and ended up getting hit by the bus. Clearly in the bus driver's blindspot It is necessary to state that it is NOT easy driving such big vehicles (Eg. buses, trucks).  Although it may be easier for others to spot these larger vehicles, amplifying their road presence, this also means that these larger vehicles will have an increased number of blind spots which prevent their driver from having a clear view of his surrounding. Netizens' comments I hope this incident does not break the bus driver's rice bowl tho.  Agreed, a very challenging but necessary change to the system.  Any cycling community willing to defend this stupid cyclist, please step up now.

    Petty Mazda 6 uncle throws temper tantrum in the middle of the road

    Petty Mazda 6 driver pulls several dangerous stunts after getting cut by a parent sending her kids to school. The incident occurred on Thursday morning (July 29) at Yishun, near Chongfu Primary School. According to the camcar’s Facebook post, his wife sent their son to school in the morning and stopped kerbside for the boy to alight. The footage showed that while she was stopping, it looked like she accidentally cut into the navy blue Mazda’s lane as the driver had wanted to move off. Thinking that it was on purpose, the driver got upset and merged into the next lane. From there, he continuously taunted her with dangerous stunts, such as jamming the brakes and blocking the vehicle from moving off while on the road. She tried to shake off the Mazda driver by switching lanes, but the driver kept going back and forth between both lanes just to cut her off. In the middle of the video, the driver suddenly stopped his vehicle in a yellow box and alighted, which obstructed the traffic flow. He then made his way to the camcar and proceeded to scold and threaten the driver for cutting into his lane. This went on for a while as other vehicles tried to move around the parked Mazda while the driver throws his temper tantrum. The rest of the video showed the Mazda driver wildly gesturing to the camcar driver, continuously taunting her before moving off in an illegal u-turn. Netizens’ reactions TBH, there is no way that the childish behaviour of the Mazda driver can ever be justified in this situation. Letting his anger get to his head and lashing out at others while blocking traffic flow is highly immature. Why are there drivers like this in Singapore? --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Your Class 3 driving license doesn’t mean you’re a better driver than a Class 3A

    There goes a saying that “Real men drive with 3 pedals./Real men drive manual cars.”, and even though that’s not the case, most male (and female) drivers have certainly had that thought at the back of their mind when it comes to taking their license. According to the 2020 Annual Traffic Statistics, out of the 3 million citizens holding a Qualified Driving License (QDL), 1.7 million (56.9%) individuals have a Class 3 license while only 200 thousand (6.58%) individuals have a Class 3A license. While it was a no-brainer for me to take Class 3A for my driving license, my dad met my decision with a disapproving sigh before simply stating that having a Class 3 license is “simply the better option”. Most of my male (and female) relatives and friends were quick to comment on the convenience of having a manual license. “It’s better because you can drive both manual and automatic cars on the road,” my dad would often say, “and it makes you a better driver.”. Having a manual license isn't all that useful. . .    Oddly enough, that sentence stuck with me throughout my teenage years – “Manual drivers are better drivers”. I wasn’t sure if I believed it wholeheartedly, to be honest. After all, my father (a manual driver) had also gotten his fair share of traffic accidents. Because of their incessant repetition of this traditional mindset, I opted to try for a manual license, only for me to realise that there isn’t a real need for me to learn how to drive with a clutch. . . . here's why: Most cars run on automatic transmission nowadays, and unless I’m intending to get a van or a sports car (that I can't afford), learning how to drive with three pedals was virtually useless. Besides the type of vehicles that one could drive with a manual license, I don’t see it as any different than having an automatic driving license. The only thing that separates these two is pride – pride in the ability to manoeuvre a transmission that is slowly going out of style. As someone who has grown up around manual drivers, I am here to tell you that having a manual license does not make you a better driver. So long as you don’t do stupid things and drive safely, you’re already 100 times better than the idiots listed below.     -------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.
