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.

At this point, not even extra driving lessons could save a driver with such a fragile ego.

I live nearby there and often pass by that road. Seen many cars did illegal u-turn and often cannot complete it without doing a reverse or mount kerb. 

I usually make 2 right turns and go one round instead. Too many cars at that junction and always full of pedestrians waiting to cross the road at the traffic light.

I supposed his thoughts is not about the legality.. more about getting away with it and it’s not blocking cam car other than a inconvenience

    Honda Odyssey driver and taxi uncle stops in the middle of the road to exchange a series of glorious expletives

    There is a saying that goes like this: "If you are not angry when you drive, you are the one making others angry." It is true to a certain extent, except that it is more towards being annoyed than being angry. However, for this particular taxi driver, he may have taken that quote a bit too far.  Watch the video below to see how he expresses his anger towards a fellow motorist: Warning: The following video features plenty of Hokkien vulgarities, voice cracking and inaudible shouting. Watch it at your own risk! What Happened? The incident occurred along Jalan Sultan.  Apparently, the Honda Odyssey driver cut from the extreme left to the extreme right lane (taxi driver's lane) without checking and almost caused an accident.  The Honda driver's behaviour angered the taxi driver, which prompted the taxi driver to honk him.  Unhappy at being honked at, the Honda driver stopped in the middle of the road, impeding the path of the taxi driver.  Subsequently, both drivers alighted from their cars, and they began to exchange a series of glorious expletives.  Below is a brief and translated version of their confrontation:  A Mere Coincidence? IMO, the taxi driver ain't no angel either.  It feels as if he was out to pick a fight with the Honda Odyssey driver for cutting into his lane.  And somehow, there wasn't any footage of the Honda driver performing what the taxi driver claimed he did.  That's a bit too coincidental, isn't it? Netizens' Comments Seems like the taxi driver was seizing the opportunity to vent his frustration on the Honda Odyssey driver. Sorry, I snickered at this comment. @Honda Odyssey driver Pls upload your dashcam footage.     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    Toyota driver 'act blur live longer' to escape after reversing into a Mini Cooper twice

    Integrity is an essential character-building value that requires one to be accountable and accept responsibility for his/her actions.  Essentially, it can be understood as "doing the right thing, even when no one is looking". Unfortunately for this couple, integrity means nothing to them. Watch this video to find out why: The Backstory The owner of the Mini Cooper returned to the Multi-storey carpark (MSCP), only to discover her damaged Mini Cooper. A gentleman, the eyewitness, informed her that the Toyota Corolla beside her reversed into her car twice while parking.  Later, she learned that the kind eyewitness had waited in the carpark because a note that he placed on the Mini Cooper, which contained his personal contact information, had gone missing. Shortly after, the couple driving the Toyota Corolla, AKA the culprits, returned to the MSCP. After the Mini driver confronted them, the couple acted blur and brushed her off. The husband allegedly turned aggressive and shouted at the Mini driver, "I pay lah, what's the big deal? I pay!", only to be instructed by his wife to get into the car and ignore the Mini driver. Even when the Mini driver was on a call with the Traffic Police and instructed them to stay until TP arrived at their location, the couple ignored and attempted to drive off.  Unfortunately for the couple, their attempt was caught in the above video.  Attempted To Run Her Over In the process of preventing the couple from driving off, the Mini driver stood in front of the Toyota Corolla. However, the driver continued to drive off, endangering the victim's life.  The Consequence Under section 84 of the Road Traffic Act, the driver at fault is liable to perform the following: Stop their vehicle. Provide their personal information to the accident victim(s), including passengers or pedestrians, upon request. Report the accident to the police within 24 hours. Provide assistance if the accident involves injury or death to another person.  Do not move the vehicle(s) involved in the accident.  To all those reading this article, please do not endanger your life in the process of retaining a hit and run culprit - Your safety is of paramount importance. Netizens' Comments Somemore bo ji to own up to their own mistakes.  If you have a solid parking technique, you won't have to rely on reverse cameras😉 This couple really ownself pwn ownself. I guess you can add "Dangerous driving - Driving against the flow of traffic" to the list of traffic charges.     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    The festival of lights means nothing to the LTA and TP especially if it involves a rally of 50 motorcyclists

    I guess the authorities aren't a huge fan of this tradition!  In the first few seconds, large crowds have gathered on both sides of the road as a mass of motorcyclists roar through the street. Another video showing a different perspective of this gathering captures the magical moment when the large party passes through the crowd. Riding through the roads, a cambike manages to get a glimpse of all the bikers waiting patiently at a traffic junction just before the 'parade' starts. However, it appears that a few of these motorcyclists might have attracted some unwanted attention from the Traffic Police (TP). Several officers issued fines to these cyclists as they stood around in a large grass patch. Some of these motorcyclists could be seen not wearing masks while they're waiting. Gathering during COVID-19 While it is unclear as to why these motorcyclists are getting stopped and fined, one possible explanation could be due to the fact that this event resulted in a major gathering in public. According to the latest COVID-19 rules in Singapore, individuals are required to wear a mask and stay at least 1 meter away from one another while in public. Additionally, the TP has stopped motorcyclists during a similar event last year over the Hari Raya weekend.  Netizens' reactions Upon hearing of this incident, netizens were quick to point out the difference in standards between the treatment of motorcyclists and cyclists by the authorities. Most of them did not see a problem with the event, since it was intended to spread some joy during the festive season. While we don't know the real reason as to why the authorities have stopped these bikers, it is evident that events like this attract large crowds and could potentially be a new hot spot for the COVID-19 virus.     --------------------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Reckless Honda Civic driver weaves in and out of traffic on the expressway in a Fast & Furious Christmas special

    Because there’s nothing more Christmas-sy than getting a surprise visit from the TP. In a video posted on Christmas Day, a reckless Honda Civic driver decided to make his own Fast and Furious sequel on the TPE. With the cam car travelling in the middle lane, the driver caught the white Honda Civic dashing through the (snow) roads on the first lane. The white car swiftly overtook its left silver taxi, squeezing itself just in front of the cam car. The driver then recklessly cut in front of the taxi and sped up, with its left indicator shining strongly in the night. The Honda’s crazy antics led to a few drivers slowing down on the middle lane. Surprisingly, the taxi didn’t waver once throughout the whole ordeal.  Speeding and overtaking on the left? All jokes aside, the way this Honda Civic driver drove on the expressway is perilous and reckless. In Singapore, the speed limit for expressways and tunnels ranges from 80 to 90 km/h. Judging from the video, it looks like the Civic was doing more than the limit. Drivers who exceed the speed limit by 40km/h or less will be issued a fine ranging from $130 to $170 and up to 8 demerit points. On the other hand, drivers who exceed the speed limit by more than 40 km/h will have to be prosecuted in court. They will also be issued up to 24 demerit points. While overtaking on the left is not illegal, it is not recommended unless a road hog blocks the rightmost lane. Even so, overtaking on the left requires the middle and left lanes to be mostly unoccupied. Switching lanes and slotting yourself in spaces between two lanes is unsafe and could result in an accident if other drivers are not alert enough.
