Frustrations from a full bladder cost this limousine driver $8000

A limousine driver was fined $4,500 in court on Thursday (8 July) for punching and kicking another car that was blocking his way at a yellow-box junction.

According to Channel News Asia, the incident occurred in May 2019 near Ion Orchard, when the freelance limousine driver urgently needed to go to the toilet while being stuck in a traffic jam.

Due to his tight schedule, the driver needed to be at Beach Road in less than half an hour for another job.

Wanting to exit from Orchard Turn into Orchard Boulevard, the driver found himself caught in a slow-moving peak hour traffic. There was no way for him to move out as vehicles were stopping inside the yellow-box junction.

As the light turned green in his favour, the limousine driver tried to move out but was blocked by the victim, who stopped his vehicle in the yellow-box junction.

With the frustration of a full bladder on a packed schedule, the driver got upset at the victim for being ungracious. This led to him throwing a temper tantrum as he alighted his limousine, kicked the front bumper and pounded on the windows and doors of the victim’s vehicle.

The victim subsequently sent his car into a workshop and received a full quotation of $7,074.84. However, he only opted for partial repairs, which costs $550.

The limousine driver pleaded guilty to one count of mischief, with a secondary charge of intentionally causing alarm.

As compensation for the damages he had inflicted, he repaid the victim a total of $3,500. Along with the fine, the total amount that he had to pay resulted in $8,000.

While I understand the pent-up stress that one experiences from holding his bladder for 11 hours straight, what the driver did to the victim was in bad taste. Also, wouldn’t raging at someone else take up more time, especially since he desperately needed a toilet then?

While the limousine driver got lucky and did not have to serve any time in jail, $8,000 is still a lot to pay for a moment of road rage.

Please don't laugh or give negative comment on any driver/s who are caught up with full bladder holding for such an long period of time, imagine most  taxi uncles /Limo drivers suffer from Prostrate problem, Im saying problem means it can be worse than that ( cancer ) and I purposely say this how " Pek Chek " one can be in such situation b4 . Of course there is a lesson to be learn from it. Im pretty sure he did what he could to escape from the bad traffic jammed. That is Murphy laws, I suppose !

It don't pay for a few minutes of anger management.

Driver stopping in yellow box, not penalised. Often quotation from some minor damages account to thousands of dollars which people who are familiar with parts quotation and repair know that is bullshxt and pure scamming. Law these days are not justified too, just encourage the bad to be worse.

    Mitsubishi Evo 10 performs a timely pop and bang which literally smoked a salty cam car driver

    In the public's eyes, most often confuse/label Japanese sports cars as an 'Ah beng' car or an ordinary car that has been 'zhng-ed'. In Singapore, it is common for these cars to get hated by the public. Here's one such example: What Happened? In a user-submitted video, the driver/passenger of the cam car can be heard making some remarks about the blue Mitsubishi Evolution X in front of it. The remarks included a sarcastic attempt to mimic the Evo X's noise. Moments later, as the Evo X enters an expressway, it performs a quick launch, resulting in pops and bangs. Thick black smoke and flames could also be seen shooting out of its exhaust.  I must say that the 'smokescreen' was a rather timely response to the complaints coming from the cam car.  Illegally Modified? This might be the first question that pops into your mind for the uninitiated. However, the black smoke, flames, pops and bangs produced from the Mitsubishi Evolution X are due to the anti-lag system installed in the car.  Therefore, it is highly unlikely that the Mitsubishi Evolution X was illegally modified. However, there is still a chance that the car is 'illegally modified' if LTA thoroughly inspects the car.  For all you know, it could be labelled as 'illegally modified' due to heavily tinted windows.  Netizens' Comments Must be because cam car's first time experiencing pops and bangs.  NGL, Evo X is a nice car😍 Every day we learn something new.      ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    Young, dumb and dumber: A motorcyclist squirts petrol at his friend just for shits and giggles

    With the constant petrol hike that motorists have been experiencing over the years, petrol has become precious to us.  It is to the extent that some of us even adapted and changed our driving habits to improve the fuel consumption of our vehicles.  Unfortunately, not everyone feels the same way.  Watch this video to find out why: What Happened? This footage was filmed at a Caltex petrol station in Jurong West Ave 1, where a group of friends were supposedly refuelling at. However, instead of refuelling at the station, they seem to be using it as a venue for socialising.  And no surprise, they weren't wearing their face masks.  An individual from the group was filmed pointing the petrol nozzle towards his friend in a playful manner. Upon realising that he was being filmed, he giggles in embarrassment and bends down to pull his face mask up.  Seconds later, he pointed the petrol nozzle towards his friend again.  This time around, he gives it two squeezes, causing two streams of petrol to gush out and land on the ground.  FYI, the price of Caltex's 95 is $2.64 per litre! That kid has must be loaded from doing all his food deliveries to be wasting petrol like that. In Another Clip The same group of friends were filmed with their motorcycles parked along a stretch of road. The same two individuals who were filmed previously were seen running in the middle of the road, with one of them chasing the other with a helmet in hand.  There's simply no cure for stupidity! Netizens' Comments It sucks to have a friend like that. But you know what they say, "birds of a feather, flock together". Truth be told, social media will be the downfall of Gen Zs. Then the whole group can get the attention that they crave!     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    How do you handle road rage? You battle it out, Street Fighter style, at a traffic junction duh?

    Watching the way these two drivers fight, they probably have clocked in a ton of hours on the game. Although the two vans were blocking the cam car at the junction, the driver got a first-row ticket to a pretty intense fight. The video starts with the cam car driver showing the two stationary vans in the middle of the traffic junction. The driver of the white van marches over to the black van, aggressively pulling the other driver out of his vehicle. Slamming the first driver against his van, the second driver tries to subdue his opponent. Amidst their power struggle, the wife of the second van driver steps out to stop the brawl and save her husband. She falls to the ground, clinging onto both men as they continue their battle. The video ends with the first van driver on top of the second driver. Both men were attempting to strangle the other party. According to the cam car driver, the fight happened along Yio Chu Kang. Before the fight occurred, the drivers were arguing with each other. He also stated that the second driver apologised to him for blocking the traffic after the incident was over. Netizens’ reactions While I do understand why the cam car driver chose not to step in, I agree that we should always try and stop others from getting into a physical fight in public. 🙅‍♀️ Judging from the video, it does look like the two van drivers were intensely hugging instead of actually brawling.  Hopefully, this is the last time we see a fight like this on our streets. Especially during such a festive season! 😰     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    Video footage of the Parliament accident: Lower your volume for this one

    There is finally video footage of the recent accident outside the Parliament House. For those who are unfamiliar with the accident, a Honda Vezel ran the red light and ended up getting T-boned by a BMW. This resulted in the Honda flipping on its side and getting wedged onto the road bollards, which shocked the female passenger in the camcar who witnessed the accident. More than a dozen individuals, including the camcar driver, got out of their vehicles to help. They were seen attempting to lift the Honda to an upright position in an attempt to rescue the victims.   The severity of the accident led to the deployment of the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF). It was reported that 5 individuals were transported to the Singapore General Hospital. According to the Straits Times, the 5 individuals comprised of 2 male drivers aged 51 and 59, and 3 passengers aged between 28 and 61. They were all conscious during the transport to the hospital.  Netizens' reactions We wish all of the victims a speedy recovery!     ------- Witnessed an accident?
