YPs doodle on probably the most expensive canvas in the world - a Volkswagen Touran

Surely these young punks have better things to do than to draw on a car with markers?

 

A recent video posted by Sgfollowsall has netizens wondering if this was simply an act of vandalism or if there was more than meets the eye.

The video opens with what sounds like a few teenagers talking loudly and using markers to draw vulgarities on a grey Volkswagen Touran.

The location appears to be an open carpark along East Coast Park.

The person filming walks around the vehicle to show the various doodles made by his friends.

He then proceeds to pick up a marker to make his mark on the car with an offensive comment to LTA.

The clip ends with a picture of the finished product – the SGD $197,900 vehicle completely covered in doodles.

Is this vandalism?

At first glance, one would assume that these punks were vandalising a stranger’s car with malicious intent.

However, several comments under the post highlighted the possibility of these boys playing a prank on a friend.

A commenter also added that the vehicle owner had intended to respray his car and encouraged his friends to draw on it before doing so.

While we are unsure of the actual scenario, let’s discuss the possible consequences of vandalism and what constitutes vandalism in Singapore.

According to the Vandalism Act, writing, drawing, painting, marking or inscribing on any public property or private property any word, slogan, caricature, drawing, mark, or symbol without the written consent of the owner counts as vandalism.

Offenders found guilty will be fined up to $2,000 and an imprisonment term of up to 3 years. Additionally, they will be given up to 8 strokes of the cane.

It is important for everyone to note that acts of vandalism are not taken lightly in Singapore. Even if this incident was done as a prank or with the owner's consent, it definitely hurts my heart to see these kids doodle on such an expensive canvas.

    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

    Cycling without helmet or bicycle seat? No problem! The Traffic Police will not hesitate to stop you!

    Seeing someone other than you get stopped by a Traffic Police is satisfying. But seeing a cyclist get stopped? Pure bliss! Watch this video to see how this pest of a cyclist gets pulled over by a traffic police officer:  What happened? This incident occurred along Bukit Panjang Ring Road. A traffic police officer pulls over a female cyclist for cycling on the road without a helmet. However, there are speculations that she is likely to be pulled over for beating a red light at the earlier junction too. This speculation could be due to her riding ahead of traffic along this stretch of straight road – it is impossible to cycle faster than cars and motorcycles alongside her.  Suitability for cycling on the road Her bicycle looks like an ordinary bicycle but upon closer inspection, you will realise that there is no seat attached to her bicycle. This leads me to this question: How the hell does someone ride a bicycle for a prolonged period without even sitting down? Furthermore, she was riding without the most basic personal protective equipment, a bicycle helmet. @Active Mobility Advisory Panel Here is a guideline/regulation for you to consider in your subsequent proposal: "For cyclists to ride on the road, they must first ensure their bicycles are certified roadworthy." Imagine if you see a cyclist riding a unicycle on the road one day — What a joke.  Netizens' comments Straight up facts right here. Typical Sinkie comment. Let's have more faith in our Traffic Police officers, okay? Even a warning is better than turning a blind eye on such matters.  Sovereign or not, this is the result of poor awareness of road safety and knowledge.      --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    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

    Note to all drivers - you should expect more blind spots if you drive with the hood up

    Not too sure what's the context of the video below but it's been circulating in car groups and WhatsApp chats since this morning. Asking for it In this short 20-second clip, a wrecked car with a popped-up bonnet ran headfirst into the rear of a stationary Honda Civic.  According to online sources, this incident occurred at Midview City.  Considering the number of repair shops located there, online chatter suggests that a workshop personnel was behind the wheel of that wrecked vehicle. Moments of convenience, hundreds (or thousands) of dollars in claims The real question here - Is it even legal to drive this wrecked car around at all? Although it may be a short distance to a nearby workshop within Midview City's compound, the car's condition suggests that it would have been unwise to drive it. Given its current state, it should be towed to the workshop directly. See lah, kay kiang drive this damaged car around, now kena accident.  Some people might say that the Honda Civic should have parked his car at a proper parking lot instead of alongside the road.  However, it may be ridiculous to attribute any fault to the Honda Civic for this silly accident.  Regardless, I hope the Honda Civic's owner can claim for the damages.  Netizens' comments Was it worth it tho?😪 HA HA HA. Don't anyhow bring in cyclists, it is a sensitive topic. There's not even a single bicycle in sight. All the best to the Civic driver. I hope the dashcam footage serves you well.      --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.
