There is finally video footage of the recent accident outside the Parliament House.

For those who are unfamiliar with the accident, a Honda Vezel ran the red light and ended up getting T-boned by a BMW.

This resulted in the Honda flipping on its side and getting wedged onto the road bollards, which shocked the female passenger in the camcar who witnessed the accident.

More than a dozen individuals, including the camcar driver, got out of their vehicles to help.

They were seen attempting to lift the Honda to an upright position in an attempt to rescue the victims.

    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.

    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.

    A higher power intervenes when a cyclist tries to break the law and cycle on the CTE

    A cyclist entering the CTE tunnel suddenly falls off his bike and onto the path of oncoming vehicles but manages to avoid causing an accident. Is this the work of a higher presence in the universe? 😱 A short clip of a cyclist cycling in the opposite direction inside a CTE tunnel shows exactly why there should be stricter enforcement of cycling restrictions and regulations. The clip starts with the camcar cruising down the tunnel, when the car in front of him suddenly brakes. It is then revealed that there is a cyclist in the tunnel going in the opposite direction. To avoid being hit by the car in front of the camcar, the cyclist suddenly stops as well, which causes him to accidentally fall off his bike. This gives the camcar a shock as he stops just in time to avoid hitting the cyclist, who immediately gets up and walks off. According to the driver, he claims that after this incident, he spots a second cyclist further down trying to enter the same tunnel as well.    Are cyclists allowed on expressways and tunnels? While it is no surprise that cyclists are allowed to ride on the roads (given that they follow the rules and the proper code of conduct while doing so), it is often unclear if they are allowed to ride in tunnels and expressways. According to the Road Traffic Act - Road Traffic (Expressway Traffic) Rules, any bicycle that is equipped with an electric motor and may be propelled by human power or by the electric motor with which it is equipped, or by both, is not allowed in road tunnels and expressway tunnels.  Additionally, according to the Road Traffic Act - Road Traffic (Expressways - Excluded Vehicles) Rules, users riding bicycles, tricycles, or trishaws are not allowed on expressways, including the KPE, MCE, and CTE tunnels.  This is because the expressways are meant for other motorists travelling at higher speeds, and cycling on these roads may cause fatal traffic accidents as drivers attempt to avoid hitting them. Cycling on expressways is considered an offence in Singapore and can result in a fine of up to $2,000 or a jail term of up to 6 months, or both.  So, the short answer to that question is no, cyclists are not allowed on expressways and tunnels.  Current cycling regulations in Singapore With the Active Mobility Act (AMA) in place since 2018, it dictates a set of rules and code of conduct to enable safer sharing of public paths among various users. The active mobility devices governed under this act includes bicycles, power-assisted bicycles (PAB), motorised and non-motorised personal mobility devices (PMDs) and personal mobility aids (PMAs). On top of riding on the roads, cyclists can also use various cycling paths, park connectors and footpaths around Singapore to get to their destination.  The full list of cycling rules and regulations while riding on the road can be found in a previous post: Netizens' reactions Can you imagine the dire consequences if the drivers hadn't stopped in time? 😱 More like the cyclist is lucky instead of the driver.  While there are laws and regulations in place to ensure that cyclists don't enter these dangerous areas, there should be stricter enforcement of these rules considering how there has been a rise in cases of cyclists on the expressways.  Otherwise, when accidents occur, the game of blame between cyclists and drivers will never end.     -------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Transformers in real life? Optimus Prime identifies a lorry as Megatron and takes it down violently

    Transformers used to be every kid's dream toy back in the good old days – what's not to love when it's based an innovative combination between cars and robots? The driver of a prime mover seemed to be stuck in his dream as he re-enacted a scene you would probably see in a Transformers movie. What Happened? The cam car was driving along Kian Teck Avenue when he witnessed this horrifying accident between a prime mover and a lorry.  Just as the cam car and lorry was passing by a junction, a prime mover emerged from Kian Teck Drive and smashed headfirst into the side of the lorry.   The impact was so great that it caused the lorry to topple over to its side.  Luckily, there seemed to be no passengers in the back of the lorry.  Below is a clearer view of the accident location: It was clear as day that the prime mover driver disregarded the stop-line and assumed he had the right of way since he was travelling straight.  Playing the Devil's Advocate? Nope, don't start on the "it is partly LTA's fault because they did not maintain the road signage which caused the stop-line to be faded".  Regardless of how faded it is, the stop-line remains visible to any road user, and this suffices.  The fault lies entirely on the prime mover driver.  The Outcome of the Accident At this point, it remains unknown if anyone was seriously injured in this accident.  Nonetheless, we wish anyone involved in this accident the best of health and a speedy recovery. Netizens' Comments Indeed. It has an uncanny resemblance to Transformers... There is a significant difference between being unable to stop in time and did not bother to stop.      ======== Receive a $10 PayNow transfer for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️ https://bit.ly/3c6JERA
