You know you have it made in life when you can use a BMW Z4 to house your potted plants

This is probably one of the most luxuriously decorated bus stops in Singapore.

The video showcases a bus stop decorated with potted plants, statues of white elephants and, get this, a yellow BMW Z4 Roadster.

Yep, you read that right – a yellow BMW Z4 Roadster just sitting there as part of the decor.

I don’t even know where to begin.

Whose car does this belong to? Why is it just sitting there? Does LTA know about this? How did the owner come about with this idea?

Where exactly is this BMW located?

Sitting at 3 Chin Bee Avenue, the yellow car decoration is thought to belong to the company P’art 1 Design.

According to the company’s social media pages, it is responsible for providing display lights for different festivals and events throughout Singapore. This includes the Hari Raya light display at Geylang Serai, the Deepavali light display at Little India and Christmas displays for malls.

While this Google Street view screengrab did not feature the BMW (as it is taken in July 2020), the white elephant statues indicate that this is the exact location that is featured on the viral video.

Netizens’ reactions

Honestly, as long as it’s legally okay for the owner to place his vehicle there, I don’t see the harm in using this car as décor. It's obvious that it's not in use anymore and it certainly brings more vibrance and life to the area by being a cool statement piece.

I think it is blocking the pavement. Don't think it is allowed.

    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.

    Why did this Hiace driver jam on the brakes right before the ERP gantry?

    No one likes to pay for Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) charges, and sometimes it's funny to see how a simple system that helps regulate traffic flow has the potential to cause so much frustration for people like this Hiace driver. Watch the video here:  This incident occurred at ERP 42 on the slip road from the Pan Island Expressway (PIE) to the Central Expressway (CTE). What happened? As the cam car approaches the slip road towards an ERP gantry, a Toyota Hiace can be seen hitting his brakes abruptly before coming to a halt just before the gantry.  This dangerous action from the Hiace driver caused the cam car to react with an emergency brake as well.  Shortly after, the Hiace driver turns on his hazard light. The cam car proceeds to overtake the Hiace and carry on with his journey, only for the Hiace driver to drive off.   Possibilities At first glance, it seems as though the Hiace driver was attempting to avoid ERP payment by waiting for the ERP timer to end.  However, a closer look at the ERP timing disregards the initial intent of the Hiace driver's action. Instead, it is highly likely that the Hiace driver either forgot to insert his stored-value card, or he was swapping an insufficient stored-value card with one that has sufficient value into his IU. Nevertheless, actions like this should not be condoned.  Just pay the $10 fine or "administrative fee" and take it as a lesson learnt.  Netizens' comments Modern problems require modern solutions 😎 Do or die, Hiace driver gonna get slapped with a fine.  Hold up...This man has got a valid point right here.   --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Jaywalker thinks he can use the "force" to stop oncoming traffic

    Jaywalking is a common sight in Singapore that is done WHEN TRAFFIC IS CLEAR ( I am sure we are guilty of doing it before). But then, there's this guy. Watch this short video to see how this dumb pedestrian jaywalks: This incident took place along Ang Mo Kio Ave 10, towards Ang Mo Kio Ave 5. Plain dumb or ignorant? Of all the times to jaywalk, this fella decides to jaywalk when an oncoming car approaches the traffic light. And the worst part is that he doesn't even bother to look left and right for traffic before crossing.  A near-miss The jaywalker can be seen raising his hand and using the "force" to stop the cam car just before it hits him. (Nah, I am kidding - If not for the cam car's quick reflexes, an accident would have already occurred.) The worst part about it is that the jaywalker did not seem to realise that he almost got into an accident and walks off, cool as a cucumber Netizens' comments LMAO, the ending got me.  Ah boy, stop jaywalking and learn your lesson ok? If there is really a need to jaywalk, at least ensure traffic is clear before doing so.  Please cherish your life. You may not be so lucky the next time around.   --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Cyclist thinks protective gear makes him invincible, bus shows him otherwise

    It is always good practice to wear protective gear whenever you are cycling. However, being decked out in protective gear doesn't grant you superpowers or special protection against other road users/vehicles. Watch this short clip and find out what I mean: This incident occurred at a junction along Hougang Avenue 9. A blatant disregard for traffic law The traffic lights were green, which permitted the cam car and Bus 109 (travelling in the opposite direction) to proceed.  Despite having the right of way, the bus driver could be seen giving way to a pedestrian dressed in a white t-shirt before moving off. As the bus driver moves off, a cyclist riding from the pavement sped across the pedestrian crossing. This "genius" did not conform to the red man signal and ended up getting hit by the bus. Clearly in the bus driver's blindspot It is necessary to state that it is NOT easy driving such big vehicles (Eg. buses, trucks).  Although it may be easier for others to spot these larger vehicles, amplifying their road presence, this also means that these larger vehicles will have an increased number of blind spots which prevent their driver from having a clear view of his surrounding. Netizens' comments I hope this incident does not break the bus driver's rice bowl tho.  Agreed, a very challenging but necessary change to the system.  Any cycling community willing to defend this stupid cyclist, please step up now.
