Luckily, no passengers suffered serious injuries during this accident.

Earlier this morning, an GoAhead bus driver and his passengers found themselves in an unfortunate predicament during the morning rush hour.

The video starts with a cam car turning into a junction near Loyang Ave towards Tampines Ave 7.

The driver notices a green GoAhead bus travelling straight through the junction as the car slowly inches forward.

He then stops in the yellow box as he lets the bus pass through the junction.

Out of the blue, another bus appears from the right of the cam car and abruptly turns into the junction.

The sudden movement causes the second bus to hit the back of the first bus, which results in the exploding of the windows on the first bus.

Passengers situated near the windows appear to be in shock as the first bus comes to a complete stop.

Pictures of the damage from the accident are posted online as well.

What exactly happened?

According to an online post, it appears that the driver of the second bus had misjudged the proximity of the other bus in the junction.

This explains why he thought it would be possible for his bus to squeeze into the junction.

I can't imagine what it must have felt like for the window beside you to suddenly shatter into a thousand pieces. It must have been traumatising! 😭

We do hope that everyone on both buses are alright! 😥 Any updates on this accident will be posted on this article.

Must be a slow morning for generating content..

It doesn't explode... it's an accident with a collision of large heavy vehicles, stuff happens and glass cracks...

Bus drivers really need to be more careful.

Red don't like green?

:D

That junction is always very busy. Vehicles are always caught in the yellow box.

Here the green bus was moving. So the driver misjudged the clearance, or, he had swerved a little while passing the red bus.

my first thought is can glass window explode ?

then why is the green bus squeezing through lane 1 

recently, actually it's been quite a while, lots of heavy vehicles drivers drive as though they are F1 drivers.

if this situation is not arrested more serious accidents will happen.

    Audi driver flaunts his 1-litre turbocharged 'sports car' by revving loudly in the neighbourhood

    Imagine it is the weekend, and all you want is to get some rest in your peaceful, quiet and comfortable house before the workweek starts.  BUT NO. In the distance, you hear a low, noisy exhaust burbling sound coming from downstairs your block. And this is what you see: What's the first thought that comes to your mind? Frustration? Anger? Disappointment? You tell me.  What Happened? Apparently, this frustrated Bedok resident managed to take a video of this rowdy Audi driver that has constantly disturbed the estate's peace.  From afar or a single glance, the car's quad exhaust makes it appear as though the driver is driving an RS3, S3, or even a "Quattro tuned" Audi Sportback.  If it were any of those cars, the noisy exhaust would have been understandable.  But wait, here comes the twist: That "sports car" is none other than a 1-litre A3 Sportback. Putting Things Into Perspective The Audi A3 1-Litre Sportback has 114BHP and 200 Nm of torque, with 9.9 seconds for its 0 - 100km/h timing.  And the fact that a noisy aftermarket exhaust is equipped to this ordinary car definitely poses as an annoyance to Bedok residents.  Worse still, it pops and bangs even when its speed is <20km/h.  So do you think this Audi A3 has an illegal or LTA approved exhaust? Do you think his exhaust system is "operated"?  Netizens' Comments Sooner or later his car sure kena tow to the workshop. What's the point of stretching a 1-Litre engine to its limit? Damn, that escalated quickly.      ======== Receive a $10 PayNow transfer for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️ https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    Stupid or ignorant? Mercedes driver films himself speeding and post it online for the world to see

    Not gonna lie; Mercedes does have some sick, sporty-looking instrument clusters in their cars. But don't get me wrong, driving a Mercedes Coupe with a sporty-looking instrument cluster is not equivalent to driving a sports car. Watch this video to find out what I mean by that:  What Happened This 15-second video seemed to be originally posted on the Mercedes driver's Instagram story. In the video, the driver performs a "launch control" upon the traffic light turning green.  With all the fancy instrument clusters of his car, you would assume that he is driving a Mercedes sports car. But here is the anti-climatic part: It took the driver exactly 11 seconds to get from 0-101km/h. (That is equivalent to a Honda Civic's 0-100km/h timing) I mean, a Honda Vezel Hybrid could probably outrun his Mercedes C180 Coupe in a 0 to 100km/h race EFFORTLESSLY. But do you see Honda Vezel drivers taking video of themselves "launching" their cars? NOPE.  Before the video ended, the driver could be seen hitting a speed of 118km/h.  License Kantong Already Let's give him the benefit of the doubt and assume the speed limit of that stretch of road is 70km/h; the driver still exceeded the speed limit by 48km/h. Also, don't forget the driver's usage of his mobile phone to capture this priceless moment.  According to the Road Traffic Act, exceeding the vehicular speed limit by 41 to 50km/h will result in 12 demerit points and prosecution in court.  Furthermore, using a mobile device while driving will result in 12 demerit points and a fine not exceeding $1,000 or imprisonment of up to 6 months or both (1st-time offenders).  Well, that is 24 demerit points and a court date just for that 15-second video. The driver's stupidity is pretty darn amazing.  Netizens' Comments Straight up facts. I doubt he can take corners and use his phone to film simulateneously🤐
    Wah, you didn't have to do him dirty like that.     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow transfer for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️ https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    Your Class 3 driving license doesn’t mean you’re a better driver than a Class 3A

    There goes a saying that “Real men drive with 3 pedals./Real men drive manual cars.”, and even though that’s not the case, most male (and female) drivers have certainly had that thought at the back of their mind when it comes to taking their license. According to the 2020 Annual Traffic Statistics, out of the 3 million citizens holding a Qualified Driving License (QDL), 1.7 million (56.9%) individuals have a Class 3 license while only 200 thousand (6.58%) individuals have a Class 3A license. While it was a no-brainer for me to take Class 3A for my driving license, my dad met my decision with a disapproving sigh before simply stating that having a Class 3 license is “simply the better option”. Most of my male (and female) relatives and friends were quick to comment on the convenience of having a manual license. “It’s better because you can drive both manual and automatic cars on the road,” my dad would often say, “and it makes you a better driver.”. Having a manual license isn't all that useful. . .    Oddly enough, that sentence stuck with me throughout my teenage years – “Manual drivers are better drivers”. I wasn’t sure if I believed it wholeheartedly, to be honest. After all, my father (a manual driver) had also gotten his fair share of traffic accidents. Because of their incessant repetition of this traditional mindset, I opted to try for a manual license, only for me to realise that there isn’t a real need for me to learn how to drive with a clutch. . . . here's why: Most cars run on automatic transmission nowadays, and unless I’m intending to get a van or a sports car (that I can't afford), learning how to drive with three pedals was virtually useless. Besides the type of vehicles that one could drive with a manual license, I don’t see it as any different than having an automatic driving license. The only thing that separates these two is pride – pride in the ability to manoeuvre a transmission that is slowly going out of style. As someone who has grown up around manual drivers, I am here to tell you that having a manual license does not make you a better driver. So long as you don’t do stupid things and drive safely, you’re already 100 times better than the idiots listed below.     -------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    How dare you honk at him? Can't you see he's making an illegal U-turn?

    A certain camcar driver finds himself on the receiving end of an angsty display after honking at a Toyota Corolla for making an illegal U-turn. The entirety of this short clip accurately shows how fragile some drivers' egos can be.  The video starts with the camcar driver travelling down Punggol Field, right behind a grey Toyota Corolla. The vehicle travels between the last and middle lane, with the driver suddenly staying in the middle lane as both vehicles approach the traffic junction.  Presuming that the Corolla would be going straight, the camcar driver tries to make his right turn - only to have the grey car cut him off as the driver attempts to perform an illegal U-turn. Confused, the camcar driver pressed his horn just as he stops in time to avoid a collision. This upsets the other driver, who wildly waves his arm out of his window. However, he doesn't stop there as he rolls down his window, gets out of his car and proceeds to angrily gesture and justify his U-turn. All I can say is that has to be the most small d*@! energy thing I have seen this whole year. Illegal U-turns in Singapore While some netizens have commented that there could have been a U-turn sign, our research says otherwise.  Upon entering the location into Google Maps, we see that the entire stretch that both vehicles were on did not have any 'U-turn ahead' signs. According to the Road Traffic Rules, While some drivers tend to make a large U-turn in order to avoid curb rash on their rims, it is highly discouraged as this might result in a collision with oncoming vehicles on the right-turning lane.  Drivers found guilty of making an unauthorised U-turn will face a fine of up to $150. Netizens' reactions At this point, not even extra driving lessons could save a driver with such a fragile ego.      --------- Witnessed an accident?
