It is that time of the year again for Singapore's infamous flooding

A video of a flooded stretch of road made its way around social media this morning (13 June). 

In the short clip, vehicles are seen moving at a very slow pace due to the high water level and the inability to see lane markings on the road.   

The flood location is identified to be on the main road towards Punggol Road and TPE (PIE).

This is how the 3-lane road looks like during normal conditions.  

After yesterday’s heavy rain (12 July), PUB issued a risk of flash floods occurring in several areas in Singapore.

With thundery showers expected till mid-July, be prepared for any sightings of a flood.

Full of sarcastic humour.

IMO, this is one of those rare moments for SUVs to demonstrate their capability in Singapore.

The optimism that we all wish to have. 😎

Not gonna lie, this person is asking the REAL QUESTION here. 

If you ever encounter a flood, here are some advice to note:

  1. Drive slowly and defensively.
  2. Do not speed or accelerate suddenly.
  3. Pump your brakes and monitor your engine performance after driving through the flood.

    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

    This SMRT Bus has a new proximity sensor - a honking Mitsubishi Eclipse

    A bus driver fails to stay in his lane and swipes the side of a Mitsubishi Eclipse. The video starts with the cam car approaching a traffic junction as he drives down MacPherson road.  The driver promptly stops right behind a green SMRT bus in the middle lane. On the right lane, a red Mitsubishi Eclipse patiently waits for the green arrow indicator to light up. As the light turns green, both the bus and Eclipse start to move forward into the junction. The bus then makes its right turn, cutting into the path of the red Eclipse. Upset that he is unable to make his turn, the driver of the car proceeds to spam the horn at the bus, which sounds a lot like a proximity sensor. The bus driver adamantly continues to make the turn, which led to the gigantic vehicle swiping the left side of the Eclipse. The video ends with the red car finally making its turn. Reckless bus drivers Earlier this year, an SBS bus driver almost collided with another driver after making a reckless right turn at Piccadilly Junction. The driver was going through the junction as the traffic light turns amber.  Instead of stopping, the bus suddenly makes a right turn, causing the driver to swerve out of the way. While Singapore has seen its fair share of bus drivers driving recklessly, this incident raises an important question. Are our current training routines and regulations sufficient for bus drivers or should there be more implemented? Netizens’ reactions     ======== Witnessed an accident?

    Sleepy or drunk? Volkswagen Jetta driver slides across 3 lanes and hits truck on AYE

    While we don’t know what type of influence the driver was under in this accident, it definitely was not a good one. At around 8pm on Saturday (Jan 15), a driver spotted a Volkswagen Jetta driving diagonally in its lane on the AYE. Situated on the right lane, the silver car struggles to maintain its position in the middle of the lane. The vehicle veers slightly to the right now and then, with the driver attempting to correct its direction. Seconds later, disaster strikes as the Jetta veers too far to the right, hitting the road divider of the expressway. The impact of the hit sends the car flying forward, pushing it in the opposite direction. The car flies across 3 lanes and makes its second hit with a large white truck. Both vehicles come to an immediate stop in the middle of the expressway as the cam car drives away. What happened? While there has not been a statement on what happened with the Jetta driver, netizens were quick to offer up their theories. #1: Driver was sleepy The most popular theory was that the driver was too sleepy. Netizens had noted that right before the incident, the car was already constantly veering towards the right of the lane. This could signify that the driver could have been falling asleep at the wheel. Some even shared their personal experiences and anecdotes about driving while being exhausted (which is not something you should do!). #2: Driver was drunk The second theory was that the driver could have been drinking before this incident. Again, netizens related the shaky driving before the incident to the influence of alcohol. They reasoned that there was no way a driver would drive in the first lane if he knew that he was tired beforehand. On the other hand, if one had been drinking, the driver could still take the first lane if he felt fine (despite his judgment being impaired). #3: Driver was distracted The last theory was that the driver could have been distracted by his phone. In this scenario, it would make sense that the Jetta was driving in the first lane as the driver was physically okay. He could have been answering a call or texting – something that some of us are guilty of doing when we are on the expressway. While we don’t know for sure which of these theories are true, the fact is that a driver should not be on the road if he is exhausted or has been drinking.

    This Hyundai driver's sluggish lane change caused an unnecessary chain collision

    As drivers, I am sure we have met our fair share of annoying drivers on the road who switches between lanes either without due care or simply because of their indecisiveness.  Here's a perfect example of an annoying driver that falls in both of these categories: Where And Who Were Involved? The accident happened along Ang Mo Kio Ave 10, just across Townsville Primary School.  In total, two cars (a BMW X5 and a Hyundai Avante) and one motorcycle were involved in the accident.  What Happened? Initially, the Hyundai Avante was travelling on the left-turn only lane. It then changed to the next lane, to be positioned right in front of the cam car.  Wanting to filter left towards Bishan Road, the Hyundai driver decided to change back to the left-turn only lane after several cars passed by it. For unknown reasons, the Hyundai driver took his own sweet time to complete his lane change, and this was where tragedy struck.  The BMW X5 who was travelling at a relatively fast speed, could not stop in time, causing it to smash into the side of the Hyundai Avante.  Following this, a motorcycle travelling directly behind the BMW X5 also could not react in time, causing it to smash headfirst into the rear of the BMW SUV, literally. Looking at the image above, can I say that all the lane switching involved was entirely uncalled for? Regardless of which lane the Hyundai was in, he could eventually turn left if he had the patience. Kudos To The Biker Bro Despite receiving the brunt of the impact from rear-ending the BMW, the motorcyclist made an effort to check on the other parties involved in the chain collision. Good on him for that! Who's At Fault? This accident will undoubtedly pose a challenging case for the insurance companies involved to determine the party/parties at fault.  Reading the comments, the public had mixed opinions on the party at fault, which included: (a) The Hyundai was at fault;  (b) The BMW was at fault; (c) Both the Hyundai and BMW were at fault; and (d) All parties involved were at fault. What do you think? All matters aside, regardless of who is at fault, I wish all the parties involved a speedy recovery! Netizens' Comments This stereotyping is somehow relatable. Let this be a lesson learned.  What a troll!     ========= Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA
