Not too sure what's the context of the video below but it's been circulating in car groups and WhatsApp chats since this morning.

Asking for it

In this short 20-second clip, a wrecked car with a popped-up bonnet ran headfirst into the rear of a stationary Honda Civic. 

According to online sources, this incident occurred at Midview City. 

Considering the number of repair shops located there, online chatter suggests that a workshop personnel was behind the wheel of that wrecked vehicle.

Moments of convenience, hundreds (or thousands) of dollars in claims

The real question here - Is it even legal to drive this wrecked car around at all?

Although it may be a short distance to a nearby workshop within Midview City's compound, the car's condition suggests that it would have been unwise to drive it.

Given its current state, it should be towed to the workshop directly.

See lah, kay kiang drive this damaged car around, now kena accident.

Some people might say that the Honda Civic should have parked his car at a proper parking lot instead of alongside the road. 

However, it may be ridiculous to attribute any fault to the Honda Civic for this silly accident. 

Regardless, I hope the Honda Civic's owner can claim for the damages.

HA HA HA. Don't anyhow bring in cyclists, it is a sensitive topic. There's not even a single bicycle in sight.

All the best to the Civic driver. I hope the dashcam footage serves you well.

LoL...the video is so grainy that you say the car has a popped up bonnet? Dunno lah. I see a car that already has a major collision in the front end. Obviously his view is obstructed by that crumpled bonnet. Why cant the driver call a tow truck and tow it to the workshop?

    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.

    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.

    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.’ Image by Deviant Art 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. Image by sgCarMart.com The only reason it could manage such a feat - The other motorists let it. At this moment here. 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. Online Chatter 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??     --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Renault Megane RS tries to outrun a Mercedes-Benz GLA45 and fails

    TL;DR – A Megane RS shows us how its 6-speed manual transmission can't outshift the GLA45s' 7-speed DCT transmission   A user-uploaded video on Complaint Singapore features a Megane RS and a GLA45s drag racing from one traffic light to the next. Here's the video for reference:     Where? The 22-second video takes place in the CBD area of Singapore, along Central Blvd. It's not a Hyundai The caption of the video states that the car racing the Mercedes is a Hyundai, but it's not. It's a Renault Megane RS Manual vs DCT Towards the end of the video, you'll notice that the GLA overtakes the Megane RS before the video cuts off. So, does that mean that a dual-clutch transmission is better than a manual one? Let's see how Google answered this question. Online chatter   Whoa. Why so angry? LOL BlueSG car also faster\   --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.
