Mercedes driver with too much time plays the brake check game with a Honda Shuttle

Mercedes driver with too much time plays the brake check game with a Honda Shuttle



Kudos to the Honda Shuttle for not falling victim to this Mercedes driver’s antics!

With 2022 drawing near, this Mercedes driver decides to pull one last trick out of his sleeve to end his year with a bang.

In this video, a cam car is driving in the middle lane towards Paya Lebar Road. A silver Honda Shuttle is traveling right in front of him.


After both vehicles pass a junction, the Shuttle shifts to the left lane.

The Mercedes in front of it quickly mirrors his actions, blocking the silver vehicle.


Here's a close up of the action:


Determined, the Shuttle quickly merges to the middle lane.

However, to the driver’s dismay, the Mercedes manages to copy his actions and shifts to the right as well.

The Honda Shuttle immediately hits the brakes to avoid bumping into the Mercedes, narrowly missing the vehicle by a hair’s length.


Here's a close up of the action:


The cam car slows down and merges to the right lane, where the Mercedes can be seen blocking the Shuttle’s path.



What is a brake check?

Brake checking is the act of sharply hitting the brakes whilst driving to make an unsuspecting driver behind slam on his brakes or swerve out of the way to avoid an accident.


Perpetrators can then make insurance claims against the victim, with the common thought that the insurance companies would fault the victim for not leaving enough space to react or brake in the event of an emergency.

In Singapore, brake checking is an offence and anyone who purposefully brake checks will be fined by the TP.

Victims can file for insurance claims, no matter what had happened before the brake check.


Netizens’ reactions


Exactly! No matter what has happened before this incident, there is no excuse for brake checking. It is simply a douche move! 😤



I hope the TP catches this guy before he actually causes an accident. 😭
