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.

Recently we spotted yet another such scene circulating on one of our favourite pages: The page had captioned it "You can't park there, Sir." You can watch the video here: 298360005_784581842681174_4396976411540370995_n.mp4 Huh? What the! How can? Immediately, we thought that the car had deliberately parked itself there in the mid

    Changi General Hospital makes the wrong call about an accident between a Porsche and a motorcycle

    A netizen made a public claim on Facebook about Changi General Hospital (CGH) making a false statement in his medical report in an accident involving him and a Porsche 911 Carrera. In the public post, the netizen claims that CGH stated in the medical report that the motorcyclist (the netizen) skidded and collided with a car (The Porsche 911 Carrera). Read his post here: However, in the dashcam footage provided by the netizen, it showed otherwise.  Watch it here: 

    Netizens divided over cause of blame for motorcyclist’s accident

    A Mazda driver tries for a lane change that did not end well. The incoming motorcyclist skidded off course and fell down at the side of the road. Onlookers came on to assist the motorcyclist but the Mazda driver had driven off without a second word.  The news was that the rider had suffered minor injuries and abrasions on his leg.

    Mitsubishi Lancer deserves the hit-and-run after provoking and playing the brake check game with a Toyota Camry

    Reacting with a brake check to a tailgater or vice versa is courting for trouble. These two actions simply do not go hand in hand with each other. Here's why: What Happened?  In the video, the cam car - a Mitsubishi Lancer was gunning down the CTE in the wee hours of the morning at a significantly fast speed. And to its rear was a white Toyota Camry that was also speeding down the expressway. The Toyota Camry gradually sped up and tailgated the Mitsubishi
