Car sharing drivers have developed quite a bad reputation for their atrocious driving over the years. 

If you're wondering how bad they are right now, look no further.

Here's a video that will make you facepalm yourself:

What Happened?

After failing to come to a complete stop at a stop-line, a GetGo Mazda 3 abruptly performed an e-brake to avoid t-boning a taxi. 

For some reason (most likely to give the Mazda 3 driver a death stare), the taxi stopped just in front of the Mazda 3.

At this point, the Mazda 3 somehow gently rolls forward and collides with the side of the taxi.

I am not sure about you, but this deserves a good facepalm moment.

This incident serves as a prime example of the poor driving skills that the majority of car sharing drivers possess.

Personally, I tend to avoid being around these cars.

I think the driver is not familiar with the car's stop/start system. Mazda calls it what? istop? The driver brake hard initially which deactivated the engine, thought engine stalled and let go of the brakes only to have the engine kick back on and rolled forward.

Either driver is a noob or too long never drive. Dunno how the system work. First time user.

That's another possibility!

I think that driver might have mistakenly thought that when i-stop engaged means the car also engaged auto brake-hold at the same time but sadly this model doesn't have auto brake-hold since it does not have EPB.

Exactly my thoughts. The cabbie knew full well what he was doing. 😂

  • 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

    $800,000 Mercedes G63 gets chased by a Volkwagen van, rear-ends a stationary Honda Vezel at a red light

    It is not every day you get to see the legendary Mercedes G63 in Singapore.  And it is even rarer to see one involved in an accident.  Watch it here:  What Happened? A Mercedes G63 and a Volkswagen Transporter 'chiong-ed' along Yishun Ave 8 upon the red traffic light signal turning green.  Its 4.0-Litre Bi-Turbocharged V8 engine and all-wheel-drive drivetrain instantly picked up speed.  Directly behind the G-wagon was the Volkswagen Transporter.  Alth

    Spot an illegal PMD on the road? Shout and honk at them. They might lose balance and fall like these clowns

    Every time I see a PMD on the road, a Young Punk (YP) is usually the one behind it.  Worse still, an underaged YP who couldn't care less about their safety. Watch how a motorcyclist teaches a couple of YP PMD riders a lesson they will never forget: What Happen? The incident occurred at Punggol Field, involving a motorcyclist and two illegal PMD riders. The motorcyclist gave the PMD riders a short honk upon performing a discretionary right turn, most probably te

    One thing that people are exceptionally fond of doing these days is posting EVERYTHING on social media. Unfortunately, this includes doing dumb things, filming it and posting it online for the world to see (Yes, it happens even if your account is private😞 IMG_7599.MP4 What Happened?  In the short video, a 'chiobu' was filming herself and her two friends seated inside a Mazda MX-5.
