Volvo XC40 driver mounts kerb and performs a 5-point turn to get out of a heavy jam at Woodlands checkpoint

Volvo XC40 driver mounts kerb and performs a 5-point turn to get out of a heavy jam at Woodlands checkpoint



Most people in Singapore purchase an SUV for its spacious body rather than its utility. 

And that makes sense as it is almost impossible to put an SUV to the test in a city environment such as Singapore. 

However, a particular Volvo driver did just that. 

Watch it here:

What Happened?

A recent Channel News Asia news article reported that "Heavy traffic through Woodlands and Tuas Checkpoints expected for the rest of June: ICA".

And truth be told, that was exactly what a Volvo XC40 driver experienced.

After getting impatient with the long wait, he decided to perform a 'u-turn' (which is obviously illegal). 


Leveraging his SUV's ground clearance, the Volvo driver mounted the kerb and proceeded to make a 5-point turn to get himself out of the standstill jam. 

NGL, I am pretty amazed at the Volvo driver's attitude to performing whatever he did in the video above. 

Some possible reasons for his actions are:

1. Forgetting to bring his passport
2. Need to use the toilet urgently
3. To escape the heavy congestion
4. Got fuel check + his petrol tank below the mandated 3/4 tank

What do you think made the Volvo driver perform the 'u-turn'?

  • 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

    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

    A Singaporean Registered Mercedes A45 loses control at a high speed and crashes into five vehicles in Johor Bahru

    Here I am writing two back-to-back articles on accidents involving reckless Singapore-registered vehicles in Johor Bahru, Malaysia.  This time, it involves a hotter hatch than the Volkswagen Golf GTI (Read it here) - the Mercedes A45 AMG. Watch the video of the accident here: What Happened? The following accident occurred in Johor Bahru, Malaysia, in the early hours of 8th May, Sunday. A Mercedes A45 was gunning down the road of Jalan Johor Bahru - Kota Tinggi
