With border restrictions lifted on the 1st of April 2022, Singaporeans can finally travel to Malaysia whenever they want. That means driving in for 'Lok Lok', getting a massage or filling your tank with subsidised petrol is now possible once again!

However, security and law enforcement across the border tends to sway on the lax side of things as seen in this alarming video of a Singapore-registered car being "broken into".

Or is there another story?

Don't be so quick to judge

Before you read on, let me establish the possibility of having two sides to the story.

The obvious story

A Malaysian man (supposedly) was caught on camera attempting to break into a Singapore-registered Hyundai Avante using a tool that resembles a metal ruler. 

The culprit was likely eyeing valuable contents in the car.

Despite committing a crime in broad daylight, he seemed calm during his break-in attempt. 

In fact, it seemed like he was experienced in what he was doing.

It is unknown if the culprit was successful in his break-in attempt. 

Another story to consider

Some comments on the post have said that the man works at a car wash and was trying to retrieve the car key, which was locked inside the car as the auto-lock function did not work in his favour. 

And just so happens, the person filming the video happened to witness the entire incident without any context and assumed the "culprit" was trying to break into the Singapore-registered Hyundai. 

If you think about it, it makes sense for the "culprit" to appear calm as he was not committing a crime.

A random thought: Can your car auto lock if your car key is inside the car?🤔 

Wouldn't a modern-day car have a feature to prevent locking your keys inside your car? Strange. 

Which side of the story do you think is true? Let me know in the comments below!

Is there an ending to the video as to what is the outcome of his act?

How to verify this is real? LoL If this is the truth where is the couple? Shouldnt they be worried and be standing around the car?? The guy can just take the keys and off he go with the car. Haha...

What car is this? Still using physical keys? Heng, mine is using proximity tech, no need to take out key from pocket.

  • Car sharing Getgo vehicle blatantly ignored the red light and hit a taxi

    A common car-sharing Getgo vehicle gets caught on camera blatantly ignoring the existence of the red traffic light. Strange since this seems like the fundamental essentials of driving theory.  This resulted in the vehicle side sweeping an oncoming taxi and, hitting into it and resulted in debris inconveniently left on the road.  It's extremely fortunate that this blatant disregard for traffic rules did not result in a more severe and damaging accident. It might be wise for Getgo to con

    A Strides MG 5 Electric accelerates from a slip road and rear ends a Toyota Wish while trying to squeeze its way through traffic

    I have to admit; this has to be either one of the most bizarre or reckless driving I have seen in a long time. Watch it here: What Happened? This unfortunate accident occurred along Brickland Road and involved a Strides MG 5 electric taxi, a Toyota Wish and a van. It all started when the Strides MG 5 electric taxi emerged from a slip road towards Brickland Road and accelerated at full speed.  Despite traffic forming at a traffic light up ahead, it did not

    We (try to) identify all 14 vehicles involved in the massive chain collision on the PIE

    Personally, I strictly employ the 2-second rule, especially during heavy (heavier) traffic and wet weather.  The extra distance and time provided by the 2-second rule will be crucial for you to react accordingly when the car in front of you performs an abrupt brake. Watch what happens when one doesn't leave a safe distance from the car ahead: What Happened? A total of 14 vehicles were involved in 3 clusters of accidents along lane 1 of the PIE, with two clusters bei

    Egos collide when a motorcyclist crashes into a Mitsubishi Attrage coming out of a parking lot. Who has right of way?

    Regardless of your road experience, motorists need to practice defensive driving/riding at all times. Unfortunately, some motorists simply take things for granted. Watch it here: What Happened? A motorcyclist was riding straight as he approached the exit gantry of the open-air carpark at Hougang Mall. Just then, a white Mitsubishi Attrage began moving off from his parking lot. Despite the Mitsubishi Attrage entering the rider's path and field of vision, th
