This video is, as the kids say, very 'happening'.
For those confused with what had just happened in the video, let me unpack it for you.
We start with the camcar (the Volkswagen Roc driver) driving down Yio Chu Kang road.
As the black car in front of him starts to speed, the camcar driver revs his engine and chases his 'friend' in a silly speeding game.
As both cars speed down the lane, the drivers try their best to avoid crashing into other vehicles.
However, to the camcar's dismay, he crashes into a grey car after entering a bend.
Luckily for his 'friend', he manages to squeeze past the car before it changes lanes and avoids a collision.
Who is at fault here?
As evident from the footage of the accident, it is safe to say that the Volkswagen Roc is at fault here.
After all, it is common knowledge that street racing is illegal in Singapore.
According to the Road Traffic Act, individuals found guilty of street racing will face a punishment of a hefty fine, mandatory imprisonment and forfeiture of the vehicle involved.
Following the Tanjong Pagar incident earlier this year, the authorities have introduced a series of amendments to the Road Traffic Act. This includes higher fines and longer jail times for individuals found guilty of street racing in Singapore.
First-time offenders will face a maximum fine of $5,000 and up to a year in jail. Repeat offenders will be fined up to $10,000 and jailed for up to two years.
While I'm not an expert at car insurance, I highly doubt that the insurance company would be willing to pay the Roc driver after they find out about his little game of cat and mouse with his 'friend'.
Yep, and they look like this:
I thought the video was shot from a third person's perspective as well, it took me a while to realise that it was the Volkswagen driver's POV. 😓
