Father and son almost get crushed by C-HR with p-plates

Father and son almost get crushed by C-HR with p-plates

TL;DR – A parked C-HR with p-plates suddenly accelerates and almost mauls a father and son at an open-air carpark. Things would have gotten ugly if they had been one second slower.

 

 

There can be miracles

While some of us might not be believers, a recent video uploaded on Roads.sg might change your mind.

The incident occurred on 10th September 2021.

Here’s the 35-second video:

A one-second difference between life and death

In an open-air carpark, location unknown, a father and his son casually walk past a cam car.

If you observe the video, you’ll notice a black Toyota C-HR directly opposite the cam car slowly inching forward as the father and son enter the frame. The C-HR then suddenly accelerates and crashes into the cam car just as the lucky duo clears the danger.

If it had been a second earlier, the father and son would have been caught in the collision.

Let’s address the elephant in the room

I’m sure everyone noticed the p-plates on the C-HR.

Could it be because of the driver’s inexperience?

Or it could have been a case of the driver talking on his phone? He was wearing his wireless earphones. And, if so, why wasn't his handbrake up?

But, by 2040, no more manual car already. If everyone drives like this in 2040, scary eh!

I’m just glad that by some miracle, a family did not lose a father and a son to a negligent driver.

That the wrong place to put a P-plate. It should be hanged at the top-right corner of the front wind screen.

True. But no matter where he hangs it, he's still an idi@t driver

    Foodpanda rider finds two cute sleepyheads on his bike as he gets ready for work

    I say, take the day off and let them sleep! As the end of the week creeps around the corner, most of us might lack the motivation to wake up early in the morning and report to work. However, one Foodpanda rider receives a sweet surprise as he gets ready for another day of deliveries. As the rider approaches his motorcycle, he finds two sleepy stray cats using the vehicle as their beds.  Unfazed by the scene, he wakes them up as he tries to turn on the motorcycle. Judging from his actions, it seems that this might be a common occurrence and that these cats are no stranger to the rider. With one cat comfortably splayed out on top of his Foodpanda bag and the other cosied up in a basket, they attempt to return to their beauty sleep. The rider continues to gently shake both animals awake as he needs to get to work immediately. Note: While it might look like it, the rider is not choking the white cat in this portion of the video.  If this isn't the cutest thing you've seen today, then I don't know what is!   Netizens' reactions It's so heart-warming to see this rider being so gentle with the cats. If I was a sleepy cat, I would definitely pick this spot to sleep in too!     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow transfer for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    Looks like the someone got a real kick from stealing a carpark lot. Or, is there another story?

    TL;DR – Nissan Kicks e-POWER seemingly 'steals' a carpark lot from another car and crashes head first into the MSCP railings. Cam car who witnessed and submitted the video claims that it was an accident.     A 20-second video of a Nissan Kicks e-POWER stealing a carpark lot at a multi-story carpark has been circulating around social media and WhatsApp chats today. Here’s the footage What it looks like At first glance, it clearly looks like the Kicks had every intention to steal the carpark lot and received instant karma for being selfish and inconsiderate. Damage report 1.       The Kicks hit the car that was reversing into the empty carpark lot 2.       It also hit the MSCP railings really hard and caused cracks to appear on the walls 3.       The force of impact was also strong enough to deploy all the air bags in the Kicks Video witness speaks up So, this found its way into one of my WhatsApp group chats. I guess we need to do some research on the Nissan Kicks to verify. Nissan Kicks e-POWER Screenshot by automotiveworld.com  I think the driver begs to differ on the whole ‘enjoyable and engaging’ aspect of the Kicks’ ‘One-Pedal operation’. There’s also a brake pedal for emergencies by the way. Image by carbuyer.com.sg Online Chatter I’m going to include more comments this time round because a lot of people have tons of things to say. Exciting things happening on a Saturday.     ----------------------- 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.

    This Mercedes driver's spirit animal must be a 'Sotong', judging from the way it drives

    Is this the driver's first time in an MSCP?  A seemingly inexperienced Mercedes E300 driver attempts to turn left in WCEGA Plaza and ends up hitting a parked car instead.  Upon watching this short clip, there is honestly nothing that can be said to defend the driver's mistake.  Despite the carpark being full, the lanes are extremely wide and spacious, which makes it easier for drivers to manoeuvre around. Additionally, a left turn is one of the most basic moves taught during driving school and most drivers should be able to make a sharp left turn from circuit training. With that being said, the fact that this Mercedes driver is able to hit a parked car while turning left in such a spacious area makes me question his driving abilities and sobriety.  Is he a really bad driver or just a blur sotong? WCEGA Plaza Located at Bukit Batok, WCEGA Plaza is an industrial building filled mainly with car workshops and dealers. Its structure is similar to that of other carmarts in Singapore, such as Automobile Megamart. While the purpose of the driver's visit to this carmart is unknown, it is possible that the car that had been hit belonged to a car dealer (aka a brand new car). No matter what, the price that this Mercedes driver has to pay is astronomical. Netizens' reactions Maybe this driver should go back to BBDC and put some money towards a couple of driving lessons.     --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.
