Children are the future – and it's looking brighter than ever.

A driver took to Facebook to share a heart-warming occurrence that happened to him while he was driving along Anchorvale Link.

If you observe the video carefully, you'll notice that the driver seems to be in the vicinity of a school.

Tagging behind a school bus, he slows down when he notices the zebra crossing ahead.

The driver had thought nothing of it when he stopped to let two young kids cross the road.

To his surprise, the two children bowed to show their appreciation as they quickly crossed with their hands raised.

Once they had safely reached the other side, the two kids bowed again to thank the driver for his patience.

Touched by their small gesture, the driver commended the children’s parents in his post and explained it’s heartening to see such etiquette from young children in Singapore.

He also encourages other parents to educate their young ones on polite road etiquette, especially if they are travelling on their own to school.

Proper road etiquette for pedestrians

While most drivers are familiar with impatient and rude jaywalkers, these two children prove it is not challenging to display proper road etiquette.

For those who are unfamiliar, the Singapore Road Safety Council has listed these guidelines on pedestrian road safety.

If young children can adhere to these rules on their own, surely the adults can as well.

Exactly! Road safety is not a light matter and it is obvious that the parents of these kids have done a great job.

    Indecisive Tesla driver proves that driving a smart car does not make you a smart driver

    This driver puts the Tesla Model 3 to shame after he misses his turn on the expressway.   In the video, a fellow driver was travelling on the expressway when he noticed the white Tesla tailgating the car in front of it. For those who are unable to identify the Tesla, here it is! As the cam car driver remains on the left lane, the driver of the Tesla immediately brakes to avoid following the turn on the right lane. The driver then signals left and attempts to squeeze himself onto the left lane at the very last second but fails as his $120,000 vehicle almost hits the expressway barrier.  The cam car driver presses on his horn to alert him of his presence. The embarrassed driver quickly drives off with no other way to get onto the right lane. Was the driver on autopilot mode? According to Tesla, its advanced safety and convenience features are designed to assist the driver with the most burdensome parts of driving (whatever that means). Over time, the brand will introduce new features and improve existing functionality into its Autopilot mode. This is to make the car safer and more capable. Currently, Tesla’s Autopilot allows drivers to steer, accelerate and brake automatically within its lane. Drivers can follow navigation suggestions to optimise their routes, which will lead the vehicle to automatically steer towards highway interchanges and exits based on its destination. However, Tesla has started that active driver supervision is still required and the Autopilot function does not make the car 100% autonomous. While it is hard to discern if the driver was really on Autopilot (or just plain distracted/indecisive), it is always essential to learn how to properly form up and know the routes that one intends to take.  Even the smartest car in the world can’t save a ‘blur’ driver. Netizens’ reactions I honestly think that cutting through at the last second is not the smartest move 😅 It looks like this car is quite well known in that area 👀 👍👍     ========= Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    Good afternoon Singapore! If you’re in a van and fancy a quickie, maybe go to the back of the van first?

    TL:DR – A man and a woman engage in an act that requires head bobbing (and tissue) in the driver seat of a van. In broad daylight. For the whole world to see.   Remember that whole incident about the couple testing the Volkwagen Golf suspension last year? We have a new 2022 version with a different couple, different vehicle but not as vigorous compared to last year’s incident. Watch the 34-second video here   Skills +10000? We do not know how long the lady in the video had been bobbing her head prior to this video. What we do know is that just a mere 7-seconds into the video and the deed is done. Out comes some tissue to clean her hands, her mouth and her partner’s lower region. Is that a public display of some mad skills? Or maybe the man has been cursed with premature…. Why do it in the open when you have a van? There’s a whole closed off compartment at the back of the van where they would have had more discretion. But I guess discretion wasn’t what they were going for. Online Chatter I’m loving some of the comments. People are trying to make up funny excuses as to what the couple were doing. 🔼THIS ONE MADE ME LAUGH OUT LOUD!🔼 Wah. That’s nasty.   ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    This Hyundai driver's sluggish lane change caused an unnecessary chain collision

    As drivers, I am sure we have met our fair share of annoying drivers on the road who switches between lanes either without due care or simply because of their indecisiveness.  Here's a perfect example of an annoying driver that falls in both of these categories: Where And Who Were Involved? The accident happened along Ang Mo Kio Ave 10, just across Townsville Primary School.  In total, two cars (a BMW X5 and a Hyundai Avante) and one motorcycle were involved in the accident.  What Happened? Initially, the Hyundai Avante was travelling on the left-turn only lane. It then changed to the next lane, to be positioned right in front of the cam car.  Wanting to filter left towards Bishan Road, the Hyundai driver decided to change back to the left-turn only lane after several cars passed by it. For unknown reasons, the Hyundai driver took his own sweet time to complete his lane change, and this was where tragedy struck.  The BMW X5 who was travelling at a relatively fast speed, could not stop in time, causing it to smash into the side of the Hyundai Avante.  Following this, a motorcycle travelling directly behind the BMW X5 also could not react in time, causing it to smash headfirst into the rear of the BMW SUV, literally. Looking at the image above, can I say that all the lane switching involved was entirely uncalled for? Regardless of which lane the Hyundai was in, he could eventually turn left if he had the patience. Kudos To The Biker Bro Despite receiving the brunt of the impact from rear-ending the BMW, the motorcyclist made an effort to check on the other parties involved in the chain collision. Good on him for that! Who's At Fault? This accident will undoubtedly pose a challenging case for the insurance companies involved to determine the party/parties at fault.  Reading the comments, the public had mixed opinions on the party at fault, which included: (a) The Hyundai was at fault;  (b) The BMW was at fault; (c) Both the Hyundai and BMW were at fault; and (d) All parties involved were at fault. What do you think? All matters aside, regardless of who is at fault, I wish all the parties involved a speedy recovery! Netizens' Comments This stereotyping is somehow relatable. Let this be a lesson learned.  What a troll!     ========= Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    $500,000 GTR with $4000+ worth of parking fines tries to escape $6.52 parking fee

    TL:DR – The title says it all. The owner claims that he ended up paying the $6.52 in the end, and the accumulated fines were due to the inability to navigate slopes at the MSCP because of the GTR’s lowered stance.   When you drive an eye-catching car like a Nissan GTR, you’d better be on your best behaviour on the roads. There are digital eyes everywhere! Trying to escape paying carpark fees is not an example of ‘best behaviour’. Here’s the video for a weekend laugh.   Updates on SGRV While normal tailgating out of carpark videos can be mundane, this update piqued my interest. The fines Let’s have a look at the fines.   HOW IN THE WORLD DOES ONE RACK UP SUCH AN INSANE AMOUNT OF PARKING FINES? The whole argument that “Home MSCP too steep” is also somewhat weak. Park at an open-air carpark maybe? Does this car look familiar? So, we did some searching for GTRs on sgCarMart like we do every day (just to drool over things we cannot afford) and we found this: Compare that with the GTR in the video. I'm sorry this was the best shot we could get.... it's lowered after all. Do you think the hood vents on the body kits look somewhat similar? If they are the one and the same, that’s defnitely a creative way to ‘siam’ the $4000+ parking fines. Online Chatter Zero logic. Absolutely zero. Well, to be fair, he sent an image of the payment     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow transfer for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️ https://bit.ly/3c6JERA
