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.

    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

    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.

    Sliding across 4 lanes in less than a minute? Machiam like sliding into someone's DMs

    Whoever taught this driver how to drive, what do you have to say now? 😥 There is definitely no way that this is being taught at driving schools. The video starts with a camcar driving along a junction at Geylang Road in the second lane. Intending to go straight after the junction, the driver slowly continues when all of a sudden, a grey car pops out and attempts a right turn. TBH the way he just slides across the junction kind of reminds me of this: A playback of the video shows that the grey vehicle is traveling along the fourth lane of the road. Upon reaching the junction, the driver realizes that he didn't form up properly to make a right turn. Not wanting to miss his turn, he slides across four lanes to make a reckless right turn right in front of our camcar driver. Luckily for him, the camcar quickly notices the vehicle's intentions and slows down. The video ends with a statement from the camcar driver, berating the other driver's selfish actions. Honestly, what is the driver thinking by sliding across so many lanes in such a short amount of time? Is it worth being so reckless and endangering the safety of others just to make a turn? Netizens' reactions Exactly! Missing a right turn is not the end of the world and yet, this driver is willing to risk it all just to have his own way. 🙄 Legit everything goes.. 🙄 If I were the camcar driver, I would be calling and reporting this to the TP the second it happened. However, as I was viewing the footage, I realise that it is fairly difficult to identify the license plate of the grey car, no matter how slowly the video was played back. Hopefully, the camcar driver is able to get a better look and bring this reckless driver to justice!     ---------------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Driver vs driver in epic shouting match on the road

    Watch as these two drivers demonstrate their lack of basic driving etiquette in an epic shouting match on the road. What else can you expect from two angsty uncles on the road?  In this comical video, two drivers are seen engaging in a feisty shouting match with their vehicles still running on the road.  With their windows down, both men angrily hurl intense vulgarities and aggressive gestures. Aside from the extensive range of Hokkien vocabulary, it is hard to comprehend what both drivers are yelling to each other. As the fight continues, the camcar inches forward, which indicates that both parties are probably waiting at a junction.  Even as other cars start to move off, these two drivers never fail to maintain the intensity of the fight as they take turns creeping forward. Netizens' reactions Do you see the resemblance too? It would explain the foul temper of both drivers 😂 Aggressively sending their regards, if you ask me.  While I do like to watch videos of drivers getting into fights over nothing, it is not proper to road rage or to block the flow of traffic just to get a few vulgarities out. After all, what do these drivers gain besides infamy?   -------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.
