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?

  • 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

    Singapore registered Toyota Voxy pisses off a Malaysian Van and gets rammed in the rear… hard

    TL;DR – A Toyota Voxy with Singaporean plates plays the brake check game and blocks a Malaysian Van at the causeway checkpoint (Malaysian side) and ends up getting intentionally rammed in the rear.   It’s common sense to behave yourself when you’re in someone else’s territory. But apparently, this Voxy driver did not get the memo.   The Story According to the caption of the video, The Voxy was playing the braking game and blocking the Malaysian Van.

    BlueSG driver fails to keep in lane while making a turn and hits cam car. Gets branded as a 'nbcb'

    What is one similarity do drivers in Singapore have in common? They tend to stay clear of car-sharing vehicles due to the atrocious driving associated with these drivers. However, one particular driver decided to brave the storm and negotiate a turn with a Bluesg driver. Watch how it turned out: What Happened? A cam car driver on lane 2 negotiated a right turn together with a Bluesg driver travelling on lane 1. As both cars were about to complete the turn,
