Watch how this Honda Shuttle beat a red light, without actually beating one

What do you do when you are rushing for time (for whatever reason), and the odds are stacked against you?

Watch how this Honda Shuttle "skips" a red light by taking a shortcut:

What happened?

This incident took place along Corporation Road, at the junction of Yung Sheng Road. 

In the dashcam footage, a red Honda Shuttle is seen driving aggressively behind the cam car.

Moments later, as the Honda Shuttle approaches the red traffic light, he slows down abruptly.

And just when you think he is about to come to a complete stop...

He decides to swerve to the nearby filter lane, perform an illegal U-Turn, and go to another filter lane to "skip" that red light (Intelligence +10). 

Thinking out of the box

Undoubtedly, this driver possesses quick thinking and decisive skills, which are used for the wrong reasons. 

Like the one featured in the video, such manoeuvres should not be performed as they are purely reckless and hazardous to other road users.  

Exploiting a loophole?

According to Chapter 276, Section 112 Part IV No. 54 of the Road Traffic Act, crossing a single continuous white line is allowed only when the road ahead is clear.

Don't be mistaken, this is no loophole.

What the driver doesn't realise is the fact that he did not obey traffic directions as indicated. 

Although it is uncertain how many offences he committed, I am pretty sure he has committed at least 1 offence from the "skip traffic light" Jutsu.

Yup, from the looks of it I am sure this is not his first time.

Someone forgot about the 9th SAF core value - "Don't get caught"

Judging by the way he drives, the sai sure at custom already.

Well, what do you think of his actions? And what offence do you think he committed?

Never thought of that before. Probably less demerit points for that manoeuvre. Deserve applause indeed.

This is actually very common in JB when I took taxi over there. I was still studying back then. Go visit JB with a group of friends for cheap eats and movies. Took taxi cos can bargain. They drive exactly like this.

The driver must either be a jiu hu driver or he picked it up from there.

He didn't break rule 54, did he, and since road ahead is clear? You seemed to be doing some backward reasoning.

Oh, I've seen this happening so many times in my years of driving.

It doesn't matter if he broke Rule 54 or not. 


The lane is for going straight only. The fact that he did a U-turn is already considered a traffic offence as he wasn't abiding by the traffic directions as indicated.

    Nonchalant cyclist casually picks up fallen plastic bags after ignoring red light and causing an accident with a motorcycle

    Only someone as carefree as this cyclist would care about his plastic bags after getting hit by a motorcycle.     The video starts with the cam car slowing down at a junction in Jurong West.  As his car comes to a stop, he notices a cyclist ignoring the red-light signal and crossing the junction. At the same time, a motorcyclist enters from the right at a high speed. Unable to stop his bike or swerve to avoid him, the motorcyclist knocks over the cyclist and falls to the ground. Unfazed by the accident, the cyclist immediately rises and gathers the grocery bags that had fallen off his bicycle. The motorcyclist gets up soon after and dusts himself off. Weirdly enough, the cyclist's reaction to this accident reminds me of this gif of Jimmy Fallon. I don’t know if I should be shocked or relieved. On the one hand, I'm glad that both parties are not severely hurt, but on the other, what exactly is the cyclist thinking? No matter how empty a road might seem, it is never a good decision to run a red-light signal and assume that the road will stay clear for you. Netizens’ reactions I agree! However, no matter how strict we enforce our regulations, there are always that few individuals who would go above and beyond on the roads just to do things for their own convenience. 😂😂 As much as I hate additional fines, I do think the root of the problem is the fact that most road users think it's okay to jaywalk (or jaycycle) if they do it quickly and with the right timing. Cyclists (and other pedestrians) who insist on crossing these junctions under these circumstances will be found guilty of jaywalking/cycling and be fined up to $1,000 or jailed up to 3 months.      -------- 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.

    Newly recommended road cycling rules — Do they actually matter?

    The Review On 1 October 2021, a government panel, Active Mobility Advisory Panel (AMAP), has produced a set of recommendations to review regulations to enhance road safety.   The recommendations consist of the following rules and guidelines:  To continue allowing cyclists to ride abreast in a maximum of 2 on roads with two or more lanes.  Introduce a rule for on-road cycling groups, for them to limit their group length to 5 bicycles. Essentially, this means a limit of five cyclists in a single file or ten cyclists when riding abreast.   Introduce a guideline to ensure a safe distance of 2 lamp posts (30 metres) between riding groups.  Introduce a guideline in the Highway Code and driving test handbooks that require motorists to have a minimum passing distance of 1.5 metres when passing cyclists.   Highly encourage cyclists to sign up for third-party liability insurance. When involved in an accident, third-party insurance will compensate for victims and protect cyclists from potentially expensive claims.  Source: https://www.lta.gov.sg/content/dam/ltagov/getting_around/active_mobility/rules_public_education/rules_code_of_conduct/pdf/2021-10_amap_report_for_the_review_of_on-road_safety.pdf My Two Cents After reading the recommended rules and guidelines, certain thoughts came to my mind:  For recommendations 1 – 3, is there a point behind it? After all, what is the point if cyclists don’t adhere to these recommendations? Unless they are caught in the act of flouting these rules and guidelines, matters will remain the status quo. Besides, recommendations 1 – 3 will only be effective when proper enforcement is present. And this, unfortunately, is a hard nut to crack.   Recommendation 4 will be only and most effective when implemented – but why? Well, it is pretty simple. It is easier to take enforcement actions against motorists than cyclists, as motorists must be licensed and officially registered with government bodies. Hence, it makes motorists more accountable for any actions committed by them.   Lastly, recommendation 5 is the most perplexing recommendation of them all.  Considering a significant number of citizens have no insurance coverage, the tendency to take up third-party liability insurance for cycling is going to be pretty damn low too. Conclusion   Nothing spells ineffectiveness more than this proposed set of recommendations, which practically solves none of the issues at hand. Instead, the proposed recommendation aims to tackle every other matter, except that one crucial matter – Holding cyclists accountable for their actions.  Netizens' Comments This basically summarises all the issues at hand.     --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Clueless Subaru Forester driver knocks down e-bike while exiting roundabout on the wrong lane

    Trust me when I say this - roundabouts are one of those places that you will frequently encounter either a clueless, confused or reckless driver. I've had my fair share of experience with these types of drivers at the roundabout located along Tuas Road.  This video is a prime example of a problematic driver at a roundabout: This accident happened along the roundabout at Suntec City.  What happened? In the video, a Subaru Forester is seen travelling on lane 2 of the roundabout, with an e-bike and a Kia Cerato right next to him on lane 1. All seemed well until this noob Forester driver turned on his blinkers at the last minute and made an abrupt lane change to exit the roundabout from lane 2. As a result, the e-bike rider was knocked down by the Forester driver.  Yes, I am pretty sure the Forester driver did not check his blind spot while performing this last-minute manoeuvre. Netizens' comments This is the sad truth - "Many people are still clueless about how to drive in a roundabout". Couldn't agree more.  Hello, did you remember to eat your medication???  For those people that share similar sentiments to this fella, do read the PSA below.  Public Service Announcement For those who are clueless about using a roundabout, say no more - I've got your back.    --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.
