Here's a rare occurrence - A BMW driver actually using his signal when changing lanes! Maybe it's because of who's behind him? 

Watch the full video below to find out more!

The incident took place along Paya Lebar Road, at the junction of Arumugam Road, before Caltex station.

A rare occurrence

A BMW 116i can be seen in the video, using his signal lights, and changing lanes from lane 2 to lane 4 to turn into Caltex.

However, behind the BMW is not just one, BUT THREE TP ON THEIR BIKES.

NGL, but the sight of TP bikes on the road somehow cause anxiety to road users (Touch your heart, don't say they don't).

Definitely a head-turner

As the BMW hatchback changes lanes, honking from disgruntled road users can be heard.

You can see all three TP officers staring and observing the BMW.

This is NOT the way

Luckily for that BMW driver, he wasn't stopped by any of the TP for his actions.

It must have been one stressful drive. Wouldn't want to be in his shoes.

NGL the BMW driver is either ignorant or not experienced enough to "chu pattern" in front of three TP behind him.

100% Agree, being gracious and courteous goes a long way.

    Volkswagen Roc plays a cat and mouse chasing game and ends up crashing

    This video is, as the kids say, very 'happening'.  For those confused with what had just happened in the video, let me unpack it for you.  We start with the camcar (the Volkswagen Roc driver) driving down Yio Chu Kang road.  As the black car in front of him starts to speed, the camcar driver revs his engine and chases his 'friend' in a silly speeding game. 
    As both cars speed down the lane, the drivers try their best to avoid crashing into other vehicles. 
    However, to the camcar's dismay, he crashes into a grey car after entering a bend.  Luckily for his 'friend', he manages to squeeze past the car before it changes lanes and avoids a collision.  The video ends with several pictures of the blue Volkswagen Scirocco after the crash.
    Who is at fault here?
    As evident from the footage of the accident, it is safe to say that the Volkswagen Roc is at fault here. After all, it is common knowledge that street racing is illegal in Singapore. According to the Road Traffic Act, individuals found guilty of street racing will face a punishment of a hefty fine, mandatory imprisonment and forfeiture of the vehicle involved.  Following the Tanjong Pagar incident earlier this year, the authorities have introduced a series of amendments to the Road Traffic Act. This includes higher fines and longer jail times for individuals found guilty of street racing in Singapore. First-time offenders will face a maximum fine of $5,000 and up to a year in jail. Repeat offenders will be fined up to $10,000 and jailed for up to two years. Netizens' reactions While I'm not an expert at car insurance, I highly doubt that the insurance company would be willing to pay the Roc driver after they find out about his little game of cat and mouse with his 'friend'. Yep, and they look like this: I thought the video was shot from a third person's perspective as well, it took me a while to realise that it was the Volkswagen driver's POV. 😓     -------------------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Torrential rain causes flash flood in the East, sucks to be you if you're not WFH

    With the relaxing of safe distancing measures kicking in on 19 Aug, 50% of WFH employees are allowed to return to the office.  If you are one of those who are still under the WFH arrangement, you would have woken up to a nice cool morning, which is perfect for sleeping in working from home.  If you had to go back to the office, well, it sucks to be you. Especially if you live in the East. Why? What started as heavy rain in the wee hours of the morning gradually turned into a flash flood for Singaporeans living in the East. If you missed what happened, watch these videos taken from various perspectives:    The flash flood occurred just after Tampines Expressway (TPE) Exit 5, at the junction of Tampines Ave 10 and Pasir Ris Ave 12.  What happened? The heavy rain resulted in PUB disseminating numerous flood risk alerts for various locations across the island throughout the morning of 20th August. Here's a video to give you an idea of the intensity and volume of water from today's heavy rain: The flash flood caused a total of 13 vehicles to be partially submerged. As a result of the rising water level, these vehicles could not move due to the excessive water that entered the engine bay.  NGL, but I am afraid these vehicles will never be the same again.    Aftermath A total of 25 people self-evacuated their vehicles before SCDF officers arrived on the scene, while SCDF officers evacuated 5 other people.  The SCDF also conveyed 1 person to Changi General Hospital due to a leg injury.  We wish the injured party a speedy recovery!! Netizens' comments Even if the EV won't sot, I also sot from its repair cost.
    Any SUV owners want to ascertain this? Hahahaha buy already, you dare to bring out and kayak during a flash flood?   Driving tip: If you aren't aware of what to do during a flood, don't worry we got you covered.

    Brighten your day with this colourful exchange of words from two Japanese car drivers

    TL;DR – A Mazda 3 driver and a Mitsubishi Attrage driver yells at one another at a HDB estate for reasons unknown.   Let’s dive right into the 49-second video. This incident looks like it occurred at a HDB estate (location undetermined), possibly near the entrance of a MSCP. Kimak! The video begins with the grey Mazda 3 driver stepping out of his car, clearly unhappy with the driver in the red Mitsubishi Attrage. . Mazda driver loses all chill and starts cursing at the Mitsubishi driver’s mother (in Malay) and other assorted dialects referencing the female anatomy. The Mitsubishi driver does play a part in this heated exchange as well. He did not project his voice as well as the Mazda driver though, so his voice is muted. What could have sparked this? Looking at the screenshot closely, I think the grey Mazda driver got mad because he was trying to make a left, but he felt obstructed by the Mitsubishi, who was turning right but positioned his car at a weird angle. Red car not in the wrong Technically, one could argue that the Mitsubishi was still within its lane, AND in his defence, he also stopped at the stop line. Online Chatter I also say. That would be a plot twist indeed. Sadly, a lot of things are wrong with the world.     -------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    2030 might be the end of the world for car enthusiasts and the sports cars they love

    JDM, Euro and Exotic sports cars    For the uninitiated, sports cars consist of 3 main categories: JDM, Euro, and Exotic. These sports cars come in a bunch of varying specifications. Let me give you some examples.     The Renault Megane RS is a 4-cylinder turbocharged, manual, front-wheel-drive Euro sports car.    Likewise, the Mclaren 720S is a V8 twin-turbocharged, automatic, rear-wheel-drive exotic sports car.    Last but not least, we have the iconic JDM street-legal rally car – The Subaru Impreza WRX, a 4-cylinder turbocharged, all-wheel-drive sports car that is available in both the manual and automatic transmission.    The list goes on and on, but you get my intention, don’t you? With dozens of offerings for sports cars of varying specifications, there is always an ideal sports car for you, no matter the specifications you require and whether you can afford it.    Why 2030?    Unless you have been living under a rock, you would have encountered the Electric Vehicle (EV) craze surrounding us lately.     According to the SG Green Plan 2030 (SGP 2030) announced during Budget 2021, we will be looking at significant changes to the status quo. Nope, I am not talking about the rise in petrol duty rates. I am referring to the phasing out of Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicles by 2040, driven by these three aspects of the SGP 2030:    Cessation of new diesel cars and taxi registrations from 2025    Requirement of newly registered cars to be of cleaner-energy models from 2030; and    All vehicles to run on cleaner energy by 2040 What does it mean for us?    The SGP 2030, coupled with our beloved COE system, is the perfect formula for phasing out ICE cars in Singapore.     Unfortunately, this will spell the demise of JDM, Euro and Exotic sports cars alike. From 2030 onwards, the supply of ICE sports cars will be what we currently have in the market. As such, does this mean that the low supply of ICE sports cars drives its market value up? If you wish to drive your dream Nissan GTR, BMW M4 or Lamborghini Aventador in the future, you better pray hard that its current owner renews its COE. Then again, it would be best to consider the maintenance and upkeep cost required for these ageing cars before purchasing them in the future. Similarly, manual transmission cars will be phased out eventually. Here's why. EVs have an electric motor in place of an ICE vehicle’s “engine” by using a single-speed transmission that regulates their electric motor. Except for the Porsche Taycan, which uses a Two-Speed gearbox. As such, EVs come only in automatic transmissions, and the phasing out of existing manual transmission ICE cars means the demise of manual transmission cars.    Electric Sports Cars    Yes, they are insanely fast. Yes, it produces instantaneous torque. But can we consider them as true-blue sports cars? Aside from the speed and torque, car enthusiasts also seek the pleasure of high engine revs, the burbling exhaust sound and, most importantly, the liberty to modify various car performance components – None of which an electric sports car is capable of fulfilling. Furthermore, the single-speed transmission that regulates its electric motor seems like a bore that takes the fun out of driving compared to manual gear shifts or the quick gear shifting of DCT transmissions.  For those Gen Y & Z car enthusiasts out there, I will do one for you. — Here’s a plea to those of you that currently own any sports car; please renew your COE so that the future generations of car enthusiasts will have a chance to own the car of our (childhood) dream someday. Last Thoughts The golden question here is, will a manual (class 3) license still be relevant in the near future? If it is irrelevant and deemed obsolete, this will remove any segregation between the community’s existing “Class 3 vs 3A” mentality.  If you are unaware of the "Class 3 vs 3A" commotion, read the article below:     --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.
