Bollards are an essential safety feature put in place by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) to reduce the impact and severity of an accident between an errant motorist and pedestrians. 

Over the years, many motorists have attempted to test the bollard's rigidity and robustness:

However, one thing in common is that all these cars failed against the bollard.

Watch this video to see the aftermath of a Ferrari 458 going head-to-head against a bollard:

What Happened?

A blue Ferrari 458 Speciale crashed head-first into a bollard at the junction of Marina Boulevard.

Below is a Google Maps view of the accident location:

Needless to say, the Ferrari's bonnet was a complete wreck.

Due to its rear-engine location, the Ferrari was still driveable.

Despite the significant damages, the Ferrari driver was persistent in shifting his car off the pedestrian pavement that he mounted for some weird reason.

Moments later, the police arrived on the scene.

On Closer Look

The location was oddly familiar after looking at the accident site using Google Maps.

I then realised it turned out to be the same location as the "Mitsubishi Lancer Vs Bollard" accident mentioned above!

Isn't it weirdly coincidental?

If it was a front-engine, can send the car to the scrapyard straightaway.

Thanks LTA!

    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

    GetGo driver with zero skills skids on an empty, straight road, collides into a motorcyclist and runs away

    Car-sharing is an undeniably innovative and affordable way for the public to access a car.   In the wrong hands, car-sharing can be a double-edged sword, capable of posing a hazard to other road users. *Pretty sure we are all familiar with drivers of a small, white car on lane 1 of the expressway, driving with its high beam on and tailgating others👀* Watch this video to find out how car-sharing can be a deadly hazard to other road users when driven by irresponsible pricks:   What Happened? This incident occurred along Bartley Viaduct, in the direction of Bartley Road East.  The traffic on the stretch of road was absolutely clear, apart from a GetGo Car (Mazda 3) and motorcycle that passed the cam car. During which, the GetGo driver was driving in between two lanes. (Definitely a sign of a chiu cheng driver) For some reason, the GetGo driver failed to spot the motorcyclist that was LITERALLY right in front of him.  As a result, the GetGo driver ended up swerving to his right to avoid rear-ending the motorcyclist.  The high speed, coupled with the sudden swerve, caused the Mazda 3 to lose traction and skid.  As much as I don't wish to make any assumptions, I can assure you the GetGo driver probably has minimal driving experience (Either that or he is drunk/on drugs). *Don't drop the "Even though I have not been driving ever since I got my license at 18, I have x years of driving experience" B.S on me* While attempting to regain control over the vehicle, the GetGo driver ended up sideswiping the motorcycle...REAL BAD.  The collision caused the motorcyclist to fall and repeatedly roll on the road.  It seems like the motorcyclist may have sustained significant injuries.  The GetGo driver scoots off immediately without hesitating after colliding with the motorcyclist.  Not Caught On Camera According to the cam car, he chased the GetGo car after witnessing the hit and run.  Apparently, during his escape, the GetGo car also collided with two other vehicles in the vicinity of Maris Stella High School.  A pity all these were not caught on a dashcam. It would certainly serve as solid evidence to put this chiu cheng driver away for good.  Here's to wishing the motorcyclist a speedy recovery. And I hope the dashcam video finds you well to assist you in your claims accordingly.  Netizens' Comments 🤨🤨🤨 Heng ah. Kudos to the cam car driver, you the real MVP.     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    The festival of lights means nothing to the LTA and TP especially if it involves a rally of 50 motorcyclists

    I guess the authorities aren't a huge fan of this tradition!  In the first few seconds, large crowds have gathered on both sides of the road as a mass of motorcyclists roar through the street. Another video showing a different perspective of this gathering captures the magical moment when the large party passes through the crowd. Riding through the roads, a cambike manages to get a glimpse of all the bikers waiting patiently at a traffic junction just before the 'parade' starts. However, it appears that a few of these motorcyclists might have attracted some unwanted attention from the Traffic Police (TP). Several officers issued fines to these cyclists as they stood around in a large grass patch. Some of these motorcyclists could be seen not wearing masks while they're waiting. Gathering during COVID-19 While it is unclear as to why these motorcyclists are getting stopped and fined, one possible explanation could be due to the fact that this event resulted in a major gathering in public. According to the latest COVID-19 rules in Singapore, individuals are required to wear a mask and stay at least 1 meter away from one another while in public. Additionally, the TP has stopped motorcyclists during a similar event last year over the Hari Raya weekend.  Netizens' reactions Upon hearing of this incident, netizens were quick to point out the difference in standards between the treatment of motorcyclists and cyclists by the authorities. Most of them did not see a problem with the event, since it was intended to spread some joy during the festive season. While we don't know the real reason as to why the authorities have stopped these bikers, it is evident that events like this attract large crowds and could potentially be a new hot spot for the COVID-19 virus.     --------------------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    MotoGP wannabe skids and crashes into a guardrail after maintaining a low angle while cornering

    An overconfident motorcyclist attempts to enter a corner at a low angle and ends up getting his pride (and his bike) hurt. In the early hours of this morning, a driver was travelling along the PIE when he noticed the dangerous stunt. In the video, a motorcyclist appears from the left of the cam car at high speed as both vehicles enter a bend. The rider maintains his speed as he corners the bend at a shallow angle. Maybe he’s trying to be like the MotoGP champion, Valentino Rossi? As the cam car is about to clear the bend, trouble strikes the overconfident rider as he starts to accelerate before the bend ends. The motorcyclist suddenly falls with his bike, which sends him across the road and into the highway guardrail. Luckily, the silver car in front of the cam car manages to stop in time, narrowly missing the rider by an inch. The video ends with the cam car approaching the smashed bike. The rider steps out from the bushes surrounding the guardrail, dusting himself off as he walks to his bike. Another concerned motorcyclist stops and picks up a mobile phone as he makes a quick U-turn to help the rider out. Looks like someone needs to get back to driving school and learn how to properly perform a corner.  Riding around bends For those who need it, the Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency has a guide on how to safely ride a motorcycle around a bend.  Before entering a bend, riders have to judge how sharp the bend is and the speed at which they need to be travelling at in order to ride under control. Here are a few things one must consider when riding through a bend: Netizens’ reactions     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA
