Passenger: "My pickup location is at the ArtScience Museum. This is my first time here, idk the area well. You know where to pick me up right? "

Taxi driver: "Say no more, my GPS will take me there!"

Here's how it all went down:

What happened?

A ComfortDelGro taxi was spotted driving on the pavement in the vicinity of MBS and the ArtScience Museum. 

This puzzling incident drew the attention of many onlookers, who were curiously staring at the taxi as he navigated his way around the area.

WHUTTTT...

Taxi drivers may have developed a notorious reputation for being improper and reckless road users over the years.

This incident has just added one more to this list – RIDICULOUS.

Seriously though. No matter how bad of a driver one is, how on Earth can someone even end up driving along the pavement outside of a shopping mall/Museum???

Is this a case of GPS misguidance, or did the taxi driver happen to navigate his way up the pavement after getting lost?

I guess this incident unveils a flaw in MBS' signage and security framework.

What a bunch of savage comments, the person filming wasn't spared either.

I LOL-ED at this comment. If you didn't get it, its related to the cycling craze where people started "drawing" animals on Strava (GPS-based Application) as they cycled around Singapore.

Maybe can consider upgrading to the Hyundai Kona Electric SUV – Off-road capability + Reduced carbon emissions.

    Brighten your day with this colourful exchange of words from two Japanese car drivers

    TL;DR – A Mazda 3 driver and a Mitsubishi Attrage driver yells at one another at a HDB estate for reasons unknown.   Let’s dive right into the 49-second video. This incident looks like it occurred at a HDB estate (location undetermined), possibly near the entrance of a MSCP. Kimak! The video begins with the grey Mazda 3 driver stepping out of his car, clearly unhappy with the driver in the red Mitsubishi Attrage. . Mazda driver loses all chill and starts cursing at the Mitsubishi driver’s mother (in Malay) and other assorted dialects referencing the female anatomy. The Mitsubishi driver does play a part in this heated exchange as well. He did not project his voice as well as the Mazda driver though, so his voice is muted. What could have sparked this? Looking at the screenshot closely, I think the grey Mazda driver got mad because he was trying to make a left, but he felt obstructed by the Mitsubishi, who was turning right but positioned his car at a weird angle. Red car not in the wrong Technically, one could argue that the Mitsubishi was still within its lane, AND in his defence, he also stopped at the stop line. Online Chatter I also say. That would be a plot twist indeed. Sadly, a lot of things are wrong with the world.     -------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    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? Online Chatter 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.     --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Taxi zooms off after getting hit by oncoming Tour De Changi cyclist

    The age-old debate on whether cyclists should be allowed on the road continues.  Watch this video, to find out why the debate never ends: The incident happened along Nicoll Drive, in the vicinity of Changi Beach Park.  The video was from the cyclist's perspective, who was cycling relatively fast at the said location.  What happened? As the cyclist approached a junction, a Comfort Delgro taxi emerged from the filter lane. However, the taxi is seen not stopping at the stop line. The cyclist's fast speed, coupled with his late reaction caused him to be unable to stop in time. As a result, he ended up colliding against the side of the taxi.  Yes, having a set of good brakes for a bicycle or car is necessary, but what is more important is to practice defensive riding/driving at all times. Upon seeing how much the inconsiderate taxi driver inched out to the main road, the cyclist should have either slowed down or swerved away from the taxi.  Netizens' comments No, don't tell me, "You think they fix Brembo?". If the cyclist's brakes cannot perform at the speed at which his bike is capable of going, don't ride it at all - It is a safety hazard to the cyclist and other road users.  That's like having drum brakes on your Honda Civic Type R 🙄 I can't stop stressing the importance of defensive riding.  The aftermath Shortly after the collision, the drivers of a black Porsche and white BMW could be seen stopping to help the injured cyclist.  Below is an account of the cyclist's experience: Kudos to those 2 guys that helped the injured cyclist!! Yes, cycling may be a fun hobby that keeps you healthy. However, it is not worth risking your life over it. If you really want to "enjoy" the speed and ride on the road, remember to wear proper safety and equipment. Whenever possible, maintain a safe speed and slow down near junctions.   PS. Did I mention how apt the NDP2021 theme song, "Road ahead" was in the video?   --- 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.
