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.

The taxi driver clever. He waited for his 2nd chances to get hit again. And to claim for free holiday. 🥳

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. 😂

  • Bad luck or pothole? Big trailer ended up being flipped onto its side at West Coast heading towards AYE

    Oh no! With another day in Singapore, yet another unfortunate traffic incident... This time, taking place at this West Coast junction.  From here, we see a police car parked behind the trailer that is lying helplessly on its side as the surrounding traffic mills past, keeping a wide berth away from the accident area, cordoned off by orange cones. 291181420_1089185911999828_7590787707057688719_n.mp4 The trailer cuts a rather lonely, hulking silhouette with the space around it.

    Traffic Police impounds a Ferrari 458 with expired road tax and arrests the driver in broad daylight

    Oftentimes when we see a supercar such as a Ferrari, Lamborghini or McLaren, we would wish to be in their position and understand how it is like to drive such a flashy and sporty car. However, I, for one, would not wish to be in the position of this particular Ferrari driver. Watch it here: What Happened? The incident above occurred at an open-air carpark at North Bridge Road Market Food Centre. Police officers and Traffic police officers arrested the driver of

    Selfless Toyota Wish driver swerves his car and hits a tree after colliding with a motorcyclist

    With the widespread use of the dash cam, you will certainly come across negatively-associated incidents on social media platforms now more than ever. Compared to negatively-associated incidents, commendable acts often go unreported and are less likely to surface online. Well, not for this commendable act: What Happened? As usual, there was heavy traffic along Woodlands Avenue 12 towards Gambas since it was the peak hour. Just then, a motorcyclist gradually filtered from

    Mitsubishi Lancer deserves the hit-and-run after provoking and playing the brake check game with a Toyota Camry

    Reacting with a brake check to a tailgater or vice versa is courting for trouble. These two actions simply do not go hand in hand with each other. Here's why: What Happened?  In the video, the cam car - a Mitsubishi Lancer was gunning down the CTE in the wee hours of the morning at a significantly fast speed. And to its rear was a white Toyota Camry that was also speeding down the expressway. The Toyota Camry gradually sped up and tailgated the Mitsubishi
