SMRT taxi hits the brakes on lane 1 of an expressway just before an ERP gantry and causes a chain collision

TL:DR – SMRT taxi abruptly stops on lane 1 of an expressway for reasons unknown and causes a massive chain collision in its wake before driving off, oblivious to the destruction it caused behind.

There are idiot drivers everywhere

Our latest example drives a SMRT taxi. Watch the video below to find out why.

Here’s the rear-view camera footage

The SMRT taxi abruptly stops just before an ERP gantry on lane 1. The alert cam car driver comes to a complete stop as well.

One or two cars manage to avoid crashing into cam car by quickly changing to lane 2 before the chain collision occurs.

Only Asian cars involved

Besides the cam car (which I cannot identify), there’s a Mazda 3.

A Toyota Altis. Or what looks like a Toyota Altis. (It became a hatchback after the crash).

 And of course, the unsuspecting Honda Fit (poor fella) that crashed into the Altis, causing the chain collision.

Online Chatter

Upon exploring the comments, we managed to uncover a bit more about the incident. The cam car driver took the time to reply most of the comments.

Maybe the taxi driver didn't notice what was happening behind him? He's still an idiot driver though.

I needed to translate because my Chinese sucks.

Yeah, this is the most likely scenario.

If I’m not wrong, he’ll be claiming from the Mazda 3 driver and the Mazda 3 driver will claim from the Toyota Altis. Then the Altis will claim from the Honda Fit.

But, what about the main culprit of this incident? The SMRT Taxi driver?

When nearing gantry can see a few cars behind also quite alert.

  • 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

    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

    Drive continental = got money? Think again. Cheapo Volkswagen Golf driver lifts carpark gantry arm to evade parking fees

    Was this incident filmed in a bad context?  Or was the Volkswagen driver attempting to evade parking fees? Watch the following video here: What Happened? When approaching the carpark gantry to exit, the Volkswagen Golf driver stopped right before the gantry arm and alighted from his car. He then proceeds to push the gantry arm such that it automatically lifts. Allowing him to get into his car and escape paying a sum of $5? It's a little blur but it's definitely

    Man caught trying to break into a Singapore-registered Hyundai Avante in Johor Bahru or is there another story?

    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
