Upset Land Rover Defender bullies and puts cam car in the 'spotlight' at IMM building

TL;DR – A Land Rover Defender bullies the cam car driver by tailgating, using illegal floodlights to blind the driver and hurling vulgarities when confronted.

 

Who needs fog lights and high beams when you illegally install floodlights in your Land Rover Defender to bully people?

A cam car driver was on the receiving end of some serious road bullying at around 6pm on 21st July 2022 at IMM shopping centre.

Watch the 4-min ish video of the incident here:

Unclear as to what happened prior

The footage uploaded did not show what might have triggered the aggression from the Defender driver. But here’s a pretty detailed summary of what went down.

Shine bright like a diamond

There’s NO WAY those lights are legal.

Anything that jeopardises the safety of other road users (in this case, blinding them with 1,000,000 kelvins of light) will not be LTA approved.

Yes, it might look cool but installing them in Singapore (where there's no floods, hail, snow, fog) makes zero sense.

Did you catch the ‘pai-seh’ moment?

I don’t know whether you missed it, but after all that bullying, the Defender driver couldn’t even make a proper turn at the carpark.

It had to do a little three-point-turn to evade scraping the walls.

Some comments also mentioned the cam car might not be innocent after eliciting such a strong reaction from the Defender driver.

While I don’t disagree, I believe we can all agree that the way the Defender driver handled it was inexplicably dumb.

I am not generalising but I had an encounter with a LR previously along PIE.

He merged onto PIE from a minor road without proper signal. So, I flashed him. From then on he started to block me and even trying to stop on the eway, till I filtered out to my destination. 

I don't have a good impression of such drivers.

Just look at how the vehicle is modified. The jacked up ride height, wide wheel to wheel width, etc. The car has a wide turning circle due to the wheel spacer such drivers add. Not to mention really slow acceleration due to such mods. All for looks.

I had the chance to drive the LR defender during my NS days. It is freaking hard to drive and the mirrors cannot see much. Acceleration is awfully slow, the steering, the pedals and gear change are all very numb/vague. It drives more like a truck. You cannot expect it to drive with agility like a car. The Defender is very expensive even for a used unit and it drives like crap.

I have driven both the short and long wheel base types. We used these for towing and other specific purposes. They are not easy to drive and the word comfort does not exist. They have the power but not meant for high speed. they can sway on straight road and very unstable at taking corners.

They are not meant for city roads. 

Nissan Patrol is more comfortable but the other attributes are similar.

  • 99% of Singaporeans won't do this after an accident

    Singaporeans in general are quite interesting. When an accident occurs, 99% are quick to whip out their cellphones to film, or to crane their necks just to kaypoh at the scene--- but end up not helping at all! However, this man here is the 1% that actually does try to help. He actually came forward to help direct and guide the flow of traffic in the wake of an accident! Watch the video here: 299188104_441793684671934_6940954086117892199_n.mp4 Wow, really one in a million. I h

    Hyundai Kona reduces a Honda Civic to smithereens after it impatiently attempts to swerve through traffic

    A Hyundai Kona vehicle was caught on tape swerving irresponsibly through traffic, hitting a Toyota Prius, a rubbish bin and a Honda Civic after seemingly getting fed up of waiting for the white Toyota Prius to parallel park.  A copious amount of white smoke was seen appearing at the end of the video. There have been many speculations on the cause of the smoke.  Watch the video for yourself below: 292023483_1112651806315178_4155691904836114357_n.mp4 According to the capti

    Taxi driver lays the smack down on a lady who dared to kick his Toyota Vellfire

    TL;DR – A Toyota Vellfire taxi driver slaps and flings a lady onto the ground for kicking his car and breaking his side mirror.   It’s been a while since we’ve had video footage of some serious road drama. Today’s incident definitely takes the cake. Watch the minute-long viral video here: What happened prior to the video? It is unclear from the caption as to what occurred before the video was recorded. But there must have been an inciting incident for this

    Goondu cam car driver tries to shame a Mercedes C180 for 'unreasonably' honking at him. Netizens eat him up for breakfast

    I will be frank with you - There are numerous goondu drivers here in Singapore. Drivers that don't stop at the stop line, those that signal right only to filter left, and those who constantly brake despite a clear traffic flow in their path. These are some of the many goondu drivers I have come across before. However, I have yet to encounter a goondu driver like this cam car: IMG_7428.MOV.mp4 What Happened?
