Drivers cause a chain collision along the PIE after slowing down to avoid getting caught by the TP

Drivers cause a chain collision along the PIE after slowing down to avoid getting caught by the TP

I’m sure there are many people who drive a ‘little’ over the speed limit on expressways, especially if traffic conditions are clear. After all, what's the harm in speeding it up a little?

However, this mentality bites us in the butt when unforeseen circumstances occur – such as the sudden appearance of TP officers.

These drivers show us why it’s crucial to pay close attention and keep to the speed limit while driving on the expressway.

The video starts with the cam car travelling on the PIE along Steven Road.

Right behind him, several drivers on the inner lane casually cruise by.

Just as the cam car merges into the left lane, the driver notices two groups of TP officers on the left road shoulder of the expressway.

The first group of officers attended to a stationary car on the road shoulder, while the second group were parked further down.

The sudden appearance of these TP officers startles the drivers on the inner lane, leading them to hit the brakes and slow down to avoid getting fined for speeding.

This, however, proves to be futile as the drivers fail to notice a stationary white Mercedes taxi in front of them, resulting in a massive chain collision.

It is unclear if the taxi suddenly braked because of the TP officers or whether it was already involved in an accident prior.

If only the drivers had paid more attention to the road, they would have saved their vehicles and wallets from an expensive repair job.

Yep, if these drivers did nothing wrong and were sticking to the speed limit, they wouldn't be in such a hurry to slow down.

    Lorry goes full throttle to beat a red light, only to collide head-on into the side of a taxi

    Cross-junctions have and always will be a dangerous section of any road. It is essentially an intersection with the most concentrated traffic, which poses additional hazards to road users. One such hazard is being a victim to vehicles that beat the red light, such as this one: What Happened? This unfortunate accident took place at a cross-junction along Boon Lay Drive.  Firstly, let's take a look at an overview of the location below: Upon the green light signal, a ComfortDelgro taxi on the left lane, intending to travel straight, gradually approached the junction.  Just then, a lorry from the right beat the red light and smashed head-first into the driver-side of the taxi. The lorry was travelling at a relatively fast speed as it seemed to have gone full-throttle and accelerated in an attempt to beat the red light "successfully".  NGL, the impact of the collision was a rather strong one. Both vehicles came to a complete halt moments later, after striking a kerb.  A Sitting Duck The taxi was essentially a sitting duck that had no way of mitigating the danger posed by the oncoming lorry.  Despite the traffic signal that indicated it was clear for the taxi to proceed, its view of the oncoming lorry was completely obstructed by another lorry on the discretionary right turn lane beside it.  Be it to perform an emergency brake or swerve; it was almost impossible for any driver to have responded in such a situation. Here's wishing the taxi driver and all those involved in the accident a speedy recovery! Netizens' Comments GWS😰 Tell me about it. Especially all those commercial driving on lane 1 of the expressways🙄 The last time I checked, being a victim of an accident is not a good thing. What's wrong with these people?     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    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.

    Did the taxi uncle angle the rear view mirror to look at his passenger's breasts or is it a misunderstanding?

    Nothing beats heading home after a long day of work.  Unfortunately for this woman who was on her way home from a night shift, she encounters a taxi driver who she accused of looking at her breast through the rear-view mirror. Watch her as she confronts the taxi uncle here: What Happened? A woman accused her taxi driver of looking at her breast through the rear-view mirror, as she could see her chest in the rear-view mirror from her Point of View (POV). This sparked to a confrontation with the taxi uncle to which she asked in an angry manner, "Why you put on my breast?" The accusation continues for quite some time before the taxi uncle re-adjusted the rear-view mirror to face the car's roof.  Despite re-adjusting the mirror, the confrontation continues.  Moments later, the woman abruptly commands the taxi uncle to alight her at a 7-Eleven by the roadside. Before the video ends, the woman was persistently demanding the taxi uncle for his name. Now Here's The Fun Part, Let's Shed Some Facts! The following was the description she provided in her user-submitted content: Two main points question the reliability and authenticity of the woman's recount. Point #1 The woman stated that she was heading home after her night shift, at around 8-ish in the morning.  However, a simple screenshot of the video at 3:04 shows that the taxi's Mobile Data Terminal (MDT) indicates that it was at 6pm. (Refer to the image above) And I am pretty certain that these MDTs are pretty accurate as it serves as a taxi metre to calculate the total trip fare.  Point #2 Initially, the woman stated in her recount that she was heading home after a night shift.  However, at the end of her description, she states that she is an unemployed mother to 4 kids. Contradictory much? All that said, these two points are sufficient for me to doubt the woman's accusations.  What is your opinion on this matter? I would love to hear what you guys think! Netizen's Comments Sadly, the taxi uncle does not teach physics😪 'Troublemaker' is the word you are looking for! Thank goodness she doesn't drive😰      ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    YP gets put in his place after driver reports his absurd behaviour to the police

    When life doesn't go our way, we have to suck it up and move on. Some of us, however, tend to go the other direction. A video of a young punk (YP) harassing a driver in a multi-storey carpark late at night has circulated on Facebook. The man who recorded the incident stated that he heard the YP shouting late at night while the driver honked at him to give way. In the video, a driver is trying to park his car in one of the lots. As he reverses, the YP waddles forward and blocks his path. He then madly waves at the driver and hits the bonnet of the car. Not wanting to confront the crazed punk, the driver remains seated in his vehicle.  After some time, the YP gets tired and sits at the side of the car. At this moment, the driver attempts to escape and drive off to a safe location. However, the YP immediately stands up and blocks the car while shouting at the driver. Slowly, the car inches forward as the driver attempts to drive away from this madness.  Not wanting the driver to leave, the YP continues to taunt him by blocking and leaning on the car's bonnet. Ten minutes later, police officers arrived on the scene after responding to the driver's call. I guess you could say that this YP won the battle but lost the war. Netizens' reactions Hello IMH, I think we found your missing patient.  In Singapore, harassment is a very serious offence and offenders will face a fine of up to $5,000, a jail term of up to 6 months, or both.      ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️ https://bit.ly/3c6JERA
