Impatient Toyota Dyna driver creates a new lane on a congested PIE. Siam la!

A Toyota Dyna driver loses patience in a slow-moving traffic along the PIE and decides to create his own lane instead.

This one tops the list of all the 'brightest' ideas drivers have had over the past year. 

The video starts with the cam car stuck in a traffic jam along the PIE. The driver slowly inches forward at a snail's pace as he listens to the radio.

Out of the blue, a silver Toyota Dyna suddenly appears from the right of the cam car. Keep in mind that the cam car is already on the rightmost lane!

The impatient driver rushes forward on the road shoulder, wanting to skip the queue and get to the main road as fast as possible.

To his dismay, the cam car blocks his path as the driver continues moving forward. This forces the silver van to stop in the middle of the road shoulder.

Can drivers ride on the road shoulders of expressways?

According to the Road Traffic (Expressway Traffic) Rules, riding on the road shoulder of an expressway is prohibited, as the lane is supposed to be kept clear for emergency government vehicles. This includes ambulances, fire engines, vehicles used by the Singapore Police Force and vehicles owned or authorised by the government.

Drivers caught riding on the road shoulders will receive 6 demerit points and a fine of up to $250. 

Additionally, stopping on the road shoulders is also considered an offence. Offenders will receive 4 demerit points and a fine of up to $200.

When can drivers use the road shoulders?

According to the Road Traffic (Expressway Traffic) Rules, certain exceptions are made for drivers who need to stop or remain at rest while on an expressway.

This includes vehicle breakdowns, accidents, emergencies, drivers who have to recover or remove an object on the expressway or drivers who stop to help those experiencing the circumstances above.

If you must stop at a road shoulder, ensure that your vehicle does not obstruct traffic and that you do not remain at rest for longer than necessary.

Looks like the driver of this Toyota Dyna has some explaining to do during his kopi session with the TP.

Not just the highways, I see so many drivers cutting into turning lanes at the last moment.

    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.

    Looks like the someone got a real kick from stealing a carpark lot. Or, is there another story?

    TL;DR – Nissan Kicks e-POWER seemingly 'steals' a carpark lot from another car and crashes head first into the MSCP railings. Cam car who witnessed and submitted the video claims that it was an accident.     A 20-second video of a Nissan Kicks e-POWER stealing a carpark lot at a multi-story carpark has been circulating around social media and WhatsApp chats today. Here’s the footage What it looks like At first glance, it clearly looks like the Kicks had every intention to steal the carpark lot and received instant karma for being selfish and inconsiderate. Damage report 1.       The Kicks hit the car that was reversing into the empty carpark lot 2.       It also hit the MSCP railings really hard and caused cracks to appear on the walls 3.       The force of impact was also strong enough to deploy all the air bags in the Kicks Video witness speaks up So, this found its way into one of my WhatsApp group chats. I guess we need to do some research on the Nissan Kicks to verify. Nissan Kicks e-POWER Screenshot by automotiveworld.com  I think the driver begs to differ on the whole ‘enjoyable and engaging’ aspect of the Kicks’ ‘One-Pedal operation’. There’s also a brake pedal for emergencies by the way. Image by carbuyer.com.sg Online Chatter I’m going to include more comments this time round because a lot of people have tons of things to say.

    Singapore’s very own version of Street Fighter: Bonus stage level

    If you’re familiar with the bonus stages in Street Fighter 2, you’ll remember whacking the crap out of a car to get additional points for a high score. We have a Singapore version But unlike Ryu and Ken, this guy uses a motorcycle helmet on a taxi. Here’s the video. The incident happened at Keat Hong Close, Bukit Batok, Singapore. And another angle Why so triggered Based on the video, it’s unclear why the 90s Ah Beng look alike got so heated up. He walks around the taxi yelling profanities and smashing his helmet all over even though there was a child on board. What are the damages? Broken mirror. Make that two mirrors Broken rear window. How much force does one need to use to cause this? And of course, multiple dents and knocks all over the taxi. Police brought in In the video, a male passenger can be heard talking to the authorities on the phone. In the caption of the Facebook post on Roads.sg, it states that the Police arrived to ‘handle the situation’. Online chatter As always, it’s always a joy to read the comments.     Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Myth: Drivers will be penalised for knocking down cyclists even when they don't look out for traffic

    Urban myth As drivers, we all have heard of the myth that the police will always penalise the driver for knocking down a cyclist (or pedestrians too) - even if they don't look out for traffic.  It's common beliefs like this that make drivers extremely anxious when they encounter run-ins with cyclists. However, one fellow driver proved this belief wrong as he shared his experience after getting in an accident with a cyclist. According to the Facebook post by Jacky Ang, he was driving out of a carpark in Ang Mo Kio in July when a cyclist appeared unexpectedly. Not wanting to hit the cyclist, Mr Ang stepped on his brakes. After seeing the cyclist fall in front of his vehicle, he stepped out of his car and offered to help. The day after The day after this incident, Mr Ang said that he had contacted the cyclist and offered to send him to the clinic for his injuries. However, the cyclist rejected his offer. A few days later, the cyclist sent Mr Ang a message wanting to claim his car insurance for his medical bills. Luckily for him, Mr Ang had already made a police report on the day of the accident. In the end After conducting initial investigations, the Singapore Traffic Police told Mr Ang that they will be charging the cyclist for failing to stop and look out for oncoming traffic. Relieved, Mr Ang posted about his experience online, encouraging other drivers to not be afraid of placing a police report for road incidents. Netizens’ reactions Mr Ang's post quickly went viral with netizens, who took to the comments to share about their own experiences as well.  Drivers (and cyclists) can learn a valuable lesson from Mr Ang's experience - Do not be afraid of lodging a police report if you ever find yourself in a similar situation.     -------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.
