Honda Stream cuts through traffic on PIE like a slippery ‘Orang Minyak’

Honda Stream cuts through traffic on PIE like a slippery ‘Orang Minyak’

TL;DR – Video footage of a Honda Stream cutting through tight pocket of spaces on the Pan Island Expressway (PIE) makes one think of a particular Malay supernatural character.

 

What is an Orang Minyak?

For the benefit of people who are not familiar with the term, the direct translation for ‘Orang Minyak’ is ‘Oily man.’

It is a supernatural being with a strong coat of oil/grease that can slip through any cracks or holes in your home.

Back to the Honda Stream

Like the Orang Minyak, the Honda stream in this minute-long video slips through small pockets of space between cars like butter.

Here’s the video:

 

Hold up, can an MPV do that?

Well, the classification of the Honda Stream is technically a COMPACT MPV, but that doesn’t mean it’s small.

The only reason it could manage such a feat - The other motorists let it.

And here.

If the cam car or the car in front had decided to f#$% around with the Honda Stream, they could have accelerated, and the Stream would have hit them for a nice insurance pay out.

There could be another story here. But imagine if the driver had hit other motorists. Wouldn't the emergency have escalated into an enormous $hit show??

    Honda driver hogs the road and ends up getting rear-ended

    This Honda road bully blocks the path of a large bus, randomly stops in the middle of the road several times and ends up getting rear-ended. There is nothing more annoying than a road hogger on a busy road, and that is what this poor bus driver had to experience. The video starts with the Honda driving slowly down the left lane, blocking the path of the bus driver. Annoyed with the car's behaviour, a man beside the driver is heard commenting "Just don't jam brakes. If not, I fall down leh.".  As both vehicles approach the traffic junction, the car suddenly stops with its hazard lights on. In an attempt to warn the car's driver, the bus driver presses his horn. However, the car remains still, which earns it a series of honks from other upset drivers as well. The bus driver chimes in with two long honks, which pushes the car to finally move off. The Honda enters the junction, swerves right, before switching back to the left lane quickly. At the same moment, the car is seen braking suddenly as the bus moves forward.  This leads to the bus hitting the yellow car from the back with a loud crash, which pushes it further up the lane.  At the last second, the car's driver angrily gets out of his vehicle to confront the bus driver.  Is road hogging an offence? According to the LTA and the Traffic Police, road hogging is considered an offence in Singapore. Drivers who drive in such a manner as to obstruct vehicles from moving at a faster speed will receive a fine of up to $1,000, an imprisonment term of 3 months and 4 demerit points. For repeated offenders, they will receive a fine of up to $2,000, an imprisonment term of 6 months and 4 demerit points.  Netizens' reactions  From the video, it is clear that the yellow car is the aggressor as the driver purposely stalls the flow of traffic and recklessly changes lanes (and jams on his brakes) without any warning. 😒 I hope that the TP sees this and invites him for a nice long kopi session soon.      --- 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.

    Honda Jazz turned turtle as a result of a chain collision on PIE

    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. Netizens' comments As always, please drive safely and practice defensive driving at all times.  We hope that all those involved in the accident are well and wishing them a speedy recovery.  ---  Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Watch this BMW cut across two lanes in front of THREE Traffic Police officers

    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. 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. Netizens' comments LMAO 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.    --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.
