The video footage is from a cam car, which was also involved in the chain collision.   

 
This accident happened on the Pan Island Expressway (PIE) towards Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway (KPE) before Exit 12, causing a massive jam.

In the video, a white Audi A3 Cabriolet performed an emergency brake just before the cam car slams into its rear.  

Moments after that, an over-turned Honda Jazz slid along lane 2 of the expressway. 

What exactly happened?

A top-down view of the accident revealed that four vehicles were involved in the chain collision.   

It turns out that the Audi A3 Cabriolet performed an emergency brake because of the car in front of it.   

However, it remains unclear why the front car braked so abruptly, causing this accident.  

There are speculations that the Honda Jazz swerved out of the lane to avoid this chain collision. As a result, it turned turtle from the sudden shift in weight balance. 

A 7-month-old girl and two men were conveyed to the hospital after this chain collision.

the jazz running on first lane, sees the front traffic slow down, then quick switch lane. That is the consequence of this kind of inpatient driving...hope he and rest of the driver learn from it.

No doubt a costly consequence. But regardless, I hope those involved in the accident are doing fine.

Also another bad habit is that instead of stopping before zebra crossing to give way to pedestrians, the drivers just nonchalantly drive through and expect that pedestrians to stop and give way to them instead (I know in China it is like that though....) :/

    Cyclist ushers lonely baby pangolin to safety

    A cyclist spots a baby pangolin on his usual trip and carefully ushers it to safety in a heartwarming video. On Tuesday evening (July 27), a cyclist was cycling along a dual carriageway when he noticed the baby animal trying to cross the road. Fearing for its safety, he decided to protect the pangolin by gently guiding it towards the kerb. The cyclist mentioned that he had to stop several fast-moving vehicles from turning the animal into roadkill, which earned him a medley of impatient honks. However, he was concerned about the pangolin and ignored the incessantly loud noises while escorting it. The little one did not seem to be very stable as it slowly waddled down the road and tripped over a drain cover.  Despite safely crossing two roads, the baby pangolin kept sticking to the roadside, forcing the cyclist to block its path with his bike so that it would climb up the kerb to safety.  In the end, he had to use the rims of his bicycle to lift the baby from the kerb onto the grass patches when he realised that the pangolin was unable to climb on its own. The video ends with the baby pangolin happily waddling away into the night. This serotonin-boosting video certainly made my day, I'm glad that the pangolin got away unharmed. Kudos to the cyclist for helping it get to safety!  What is a pangolin? According to the World Wildlife Fund, a pangolin, also known as a scaly anteater, is a primarily nocturnal mammal with a body full of scales. When startled, these animals will hide their heads and expose their scales to predators. If a predator touches their scales, the pangolin will roll up into a ball and use its tails to attack.  The most common species of pangolin found in Singapore is the Sunda pangolin (Malayan pangolin) and is commonly found in Bukit Timah Nature Reserve and the Central Catchment Nature Reserve. It is also the animal on various Wildlife Reserves Singapore (WRS) donation boxes throughout Singapore. In 2008, the Sunda pangolin was listed as 'critically endangered' in the Singapore Red Data Book. While its main threat is the loss of its habitat due to rapid urbanisation and roadkill, a huge number of pangolins are poached globally for their meat and scales, which are believed to have medicinal value.  Due to its ability to only have 1 or 2 babies a year, the global pangolin population is unable to recover as quickly as it is depleting.  In 2017, the Wildlife Reserves Singapore launched the Sunda Pangolin National Conservation Strategy and Action Plan in conjunction with the Singapore Pangolin Working Group to promote the conservation of the animal and protect it from going extinct. Netizens' reactions What to do if you encounter a live pangolin? While it is rare to observe a live pangolin in the busier areas of Singapore, it is not impossible as they tend to wander into residential areas from the forest. If you ever encounter a pangolin, follow these guidelines provided by the National Parks Board: 1. Do not be alarmed as pangolins are shy animals and do not attack humans. 2. Do not touch, chase or corner them as they will be frightened by the approach. You are advised to leave them alone. 3. Observe them and share your findings with pangolin research and welfare groups online. 4. If necessary, you can contact NParks at 1800-471-3700 or the police for assistance.   --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Driving School 101: Always check them blindspots before changing lanes

    A grey Honda Stream driver almost caused an unnecessary accident, by abruptly changing lanes without checking its blindspots. A Honda Stream driver that did a last-minute lane change, resulted in a near-miss with a motorcyclist.  Luckily for that ignorant driver, the motorcyclist’s defensive reaction kicked in, and he managed to perform an impressive evasive manoeuvre to avoid the Honda Stream.   Subsequently, the enraged motorcyclist rode alongside the Honda Stream to confront the driver but was shrugged off. Our road community could certainly do without entitled drivers who show blatant disregard for road safety.  #Respectforbikers  According to Singapore’s traffic rules, offenders will face a composition fine of $100 for their failure to signal. While offenders who drive without due care or reasonable consideration for other road users will face 9 demerit points and a composition fine of $300.  Netizens' Reaction Facts, facts, facts. Lesson learnt: Change starts from within. Let’s start inculcating a safer road culture for our fellow road users.    --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    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.

    Check out Punggol's new carpark R&R corner

    A small part of a HDB multi-storey carpark in Punggol has been transformed into a comfortable "relax corner". Posted on Saturday (July 3), a fellow Singaporean submitted photographs of a HDB multi-storey carpark located in Punggol Central. In the photographs, a couple of motorcycle lots were transformed into a resting area completely furnished with couches, drawers, and multiple helmets on a ledge. It was speculated that the area could be for food delivery riders who live in the area or riders waiting in the vicinity for more orders. While it was unsure if the space belonged to a single user or open to the public, the amount of effort that it took to transform the area was certainly impressive. According to the Housing Development Board (HDB) regulations, no tables, tents, or chairs are allowed in the facility and any ongoing activity must not affect the parking needs of residents. Failure to heed these guidelines will result in negative feedback and the parties involved will have their permits revoked.   --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.
