Singapore drivers have earned themselves a bad reputation in Malaysia after a certain someone made headlines for a road rage incident that occurred at Tuas Second Link.

Since then, many have began keeping a watchful eye on Singapore-registered cars and the way Singapore drivers behave on foreign soil. 

Unfortunately, a Singapore Porsche convoy in Malaysia caught the attention of a local driver who filmed them driving "recklessly" and subsequently made a police report on them.

Watch the video here:

What Happened? 

A group of Singapore-registered Porsches were travelling on a single-lane road in Malaysia, intending to drive in a "convoy style" configuration.

To maintain their convoy configuration, several Porsches overtook the cam car driver, who was in the middle of the Porsche convoy.

The cam car driver deemed the overtaking manoeuvre by the Porsche drivers to be "reckless".

So unsurprisingly, the Malaysian driver used his mobile phone to film the overtaking incident while driving and subsequently made a police report about them.

In all honesty, I felt the overtaking manoeuvres by the Porsche drivers were not reckless at all (despite a few of them crossing the double solid white lines).

Here's why:

1) They ensured that the traffic in the opposite direction was clear before performing the overtaking manoeuvre; and

2) They performed the overtaking manoeuvre swiftly yet safely, which did not cause the cam car to perform any abrupt braking.

Wanted by Malaysian Authorities

Malaysian authorities are now attempting to track down the 7 Porsche drivers involved in the "reckless" incident. 

Below is the original media statement by the Kota Tinggi District Police Chief, Johor:

Cam car driver obviously forgot to "ownself check ownself".

My exact sentiments.

After the stolen Honda Civic Type R incident and the Hyundai Elantra, whose wheels got stolen in KSL City Mall, it is not uncommon for more Singaporeans to take additional precautions while travelling in Malaysia.

I agree to take additional precautions while travelling in Malaysia.

Just don't drive your Porsche out of SG :grin:

Crossing double white lines but not dangerous? OK. Cross some more one day there will be a king Kong lorry coming the other way.

Whether sg drivers break rules here or in Malaysia, they should be caught and fined.

  • BBQ le: Honda Vezel rear-ends a motorcycle after failing to pay attention while checking for oncoming traffic

    "Wan le wan le wan le, BBQ le" is the most recent trend on social media - Heard of it yet? If you haven't, watch it here: What Happened? While turning out to the main road along Horne road, a Honda Vezel driver failed to stop at a stop-line and rear-ends a motorcycle in front of him. Instead of paying attention and keeping a lookout for traffic in front of him, the Honda driver decided it was a good idea to check for oncoming traffic, despite the presence of a motor

    Subaru Legacy leaves a trail of destruction and dismay after driving like a lunatic on the PIE early in the morning

    TL;DR – A Subaru Legacy recklessly speeds through morning traffic and weaves through tight pockets of space between cars. Ends up side swiping a Toyota Wish causing a jam on the PIE during morning rush hour.   It’s 8am and you’re on the way to work. The morning traffic is not too bad and you look like you’ll make it to the office with little to no hiccups. But, life is funny and loves to throw you a curve ball every now and then. In this case, it’s in the form of a Subaru Legacy w

    Cam lorry's late reaction to a reckless Lexus RX300's e-brake causes it to rear-end the SUV

    A pet peeve of mine is when commercial vehicles (Eg. Vans, lorries, tipper trucks) travel on lane 2 of the expressway.  And I am certain this is a pet peeve of many drivers in Singapore.  Due to the speed limit imposed on these vehicles, they often cause a slow down in the lane they are travelling in (assuming traffic is clear and they are driving under the speed limit).  However, just because they are commercial vehicles, does it give them the right for passenger vehicles to "bul
