Volkswagen Roc plays a cat and mouse chasing game and ends up crashing

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.

The video ends with several pictures of the blue Volkswagen Scirocco after the crash.

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. 😓

The Audi filtered into main road from a small road and tried to cut 3 lanes at once. How is he not at fault? 

Not saying the Scirocco is innocent, but all 3 of them contributed to the accident. 

If the ROC owner was smart, he should kept the video or burn the SD, and try to push the blame 100% to the Audi since he changed lane without checking or without care. 

Of course, unless other witnesses gave evidence they were racing.

You, Sir, are an Idiot. If you actually ever driving a car in 30mph area you would realise the audi driver wouldn't have a chance as the two cars were not even in junction at the time audi started to move lanes and only due to going what looks like well over 60mph the two idiots connected.

Judging by you quoting MPH, I can assume you're not from Singapore, so I wouldn't blame you for knowing jack-shit about how our traffic laws work. It doesn't matter if you're going at 50kmh or 100kmh, cutting across 3 lanes without checking for approaching vehicles and your blindspot is just waiting for an accident to happen. In our country, we drive on the left side of the road, so he is cutting across to the right-most lane, where faster vehicles drive on. It doesn't matter where you're from, cutting 3 lanes at once into the fastest lane is the stupidest thing you can do while driving. 

Also, in case you are unaware, the video is uploaded by the racing scirocco himself. Which is why i said if there is no video evidence, there will be no proof of them racing. He should have just burned the SD card away. 

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure all these out. Idiot.

    Watch a rear tailgate of a truck break off and whack an Audi TT on the TPE. Ouch!

    Have you ever had to carry your family’s groceries in one trip after they have been on an NTUC run? Usually, it takes two or three trips (with a trolley) to haul back all of the plastic bags but every once in a while, your parents might hit you with the “It’s fine. It’s not that heavy. You can carry all of them back with your hands.”. While you try your best to balance the hefty weight on your arms, your body might feel like it’s going to burst any second. Well, that’s what happened with this truck. On Saturday (4 Dec), a cam car caught the moment when the rear tailgate of a truck suddenly broke off the vehicle on the expressway. After snapping off, the heavy tailgate cartwheeled across the road, hitting the side of a white Audi TT. While the rest of the truck was encased by a cloud of soil, the cam car immediately came to a halt after witnessing the horrific hit. The cam driver hopes that his video will assist the white Audi TT in making an insurance claim for any damages done. How did this happen? Although this was not the first time we heard of a vehicle getting hit by some random part of another vehicle, incidents like this should not be a common occurrence. Last week, a tyre fell from a different truck and hit another vehicle on the PIE. While there were no injuries reported, the scene of a flying tyre is more than enough to traumatize a driver. Even though there are no solid details on what happened in this video, netizens were quick to speculate several possibilities. The first was that the truck driver failed to maintain his vehicle correctly and did not perform the necessary checks to ensure that his truck was safe to drive. The other possibility was that the load of soil that the truck was carrying was too heavy, resulting in the tailgate's sudden breakage. While we might not know for sure how this happened, we’re glad that nobody was severely injured from this potentially deadly incident.

    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. Netizens' comments 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?      --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Mitsubishi Lancer bids farewell to its NCD after accident with four other vehicles

    The driver of this Mitsubishi Lancer must be kicking himself right now. I don't like to judge the way that other people drive their vehicles, but when it comes to drivers not exhibiting the most basic fundamentals of driving, it's hard to bite my tongue. In the video, the camcar is carefully driving down the SLE expressway along Woodlands Avenue 12 due to the wet weather. Upon reaching the expressway exit, the driver slows down after he notices the white Audi station wagon doing so as well. All of a sudden, a Mitsubishi Lancer appears out of the blue from the right at an increasingly high speed. Due to the driver's lack of foresight, the car ends up skidding on the wet road and briefly clips the camcar and the white Audi.  The driver tries to stay in his lane and ends up hitting the back of a black Toyota Vezel. The force of the impact results in the Vezel hitting the back of a Toyota Altis as well. All in all, 4 vehicles were damaged by the Lancer, with the camcar and the Audi only suffering a few dents. I'm not sure how experienced he is, but I'm pretty sure the Lancer driver can kiss his No Claim Discount (NCD) goodbye after this accident. What is NCD? No Claim Discount (NCD) or No Claim Bonus (NCB) is a discount on a driver's car insurance premium based on how long he has been driving and his existing claims record. As drivers accumulate more years of driving without making a claim, they would be entitled to a discount on the yearly premiums.  Given that the driver has been insured with the same company for the past 12 months and does not have any accidents reported or made any claims under his own policy, a cumulative discount will apply whenever he renews his policy with the insurance company. An example of this would be: So if a driver has been accident-free for 5 or more years, he would be entitled to a 50% discount on his yearly premiums. That's a huge discount right there! Unfortunately, the moment a driver gets into an accident, the discount is removed and the premiums for the next year will definitely rise. What if the driver was under the influence of alcohol? If the driver is found to be under the influence by the police, the insurance company will not be paying a single cent. This would mean that all of the repair costs will be paid from the driver's own pocket, which might land him in hot water if he is unable to afford it. Netizens' reactions Yep, that's right! Also, isn't it common sense to slow down around bends? This is why we listen during our theory lessons - to avoid making idiotic mistakes like this. I think our Lancer driver might have to ransack his house to pay off his high premiums! 🤣 Moral of the story: Don't be a hero and slow down around bends!     -------------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    PSA: Walking under automated carpark gantries may cause injury (unless you're Usain Bolt)

    While Singaporeans were celebrating Halloween with cute costumes and fancy decorations on the 31st, one man suffered a painful consequence when he decided to cross under the arm of an automated carpark gantry. In this short video, a cam car exits an open-air carpark when he stops to let a pedestrian cross the road. Thinking he could make it, the man hurriedly jogs across and attempts to leave the carpark by going under the automated arm of the carpark gantry. To his dismay, the arm quickly swings down and hits him squarely on the head. Upon witnessing this incident, the cam car driver lets out a loud cackle as he moves forward to exit. The poor pedestrian could be seen rubbing the top of his head as he runs off in embarrassment. Don't try this if you're not Usain Bolt, the fastest man on Earth.  Netizens’ reactions While most netizens found the incident rather funny, some found the cam car driver's reaction to being a little too insensitive.  It's always sad to lose a couple of braincells, but at least it's nothing serious.     -------------------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.
