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:

Wow, really one in a million.

I haven't seen anything like this before. It's quite a selfless act, to step up for the community, and under such hot weather too.

He was seen directing a bus to come forward:

Then a taxi too:

As well as other vehicles spotted streaming in:

To be honest, we are not exactly sure if the vehicles are actually following his guide and hand signals, but he is sure enthu about it.

The public weigh in

Netizens, naturally, had something to say despite not being at the scene itself to offer any help:

This commentator has a point! The man had a good intention but... If approached wrongly, traffic directing can lead to even more problems and accidents...

This comment also agrees with the one above. We like to see people being helpful, but...

Hey, we have no comment OK. Both are good also, haha.

This comment sums up the general sentiment of many Singaporeans today--- just buat bodoh, and mind your own business (but not before KPO-ing a bit).

Good or bad?

It's hard to really say whether the man's actions were selfless or foolish. He may have meant well, but if untrained he could really have caused more collisions. At least he had good intentions at heart and tried to step up, though we hope it won't be a case of "yue bang yue mang", or in English, "to meddle and bring on more trouble".

Did he add any value.

If he not there would the traffic move even faster?

I would like to help. But then I was also worried that I would get filmed and photographed and ultimately get stomped over somewhere.

Previously, my estate had 1 exit only.

1 good Saturday, traffic was logged jam from all directions.

I stepped forward as traffic warden for 15 minutes to clear up the deadlock.

Otherwise, I can't drive out.

  • P-plate Toyota Wish driver depletes all its demerit points in a case of reckless driving (where no hurt was caused)

    TL;DR – A Toyota Wish with p-plates dangerously cuts in front of a cam car, beats the red light and almost gets t-boned by another car   There’s a reason why car insurance companies charge a premium for new drivers. This 62-second video is one of the reasons: What happened? The video starts off by highlighting the exciting bits (think that’s the format SGRV is going for these days). A Toyota Wish dangerously cuts in front of the cam car and it looks like i

    The curse of vehicles with the numbers 6-0-0-0 on their license plate strikes again. But instead of a Cerato, it's a Vezel this time

    A Honda Vezel with a license plate number of 6000 rams straight into a tree at Ubi outside the Opel showroom as shown in the picture below.   This is not the first time a vehicle with a license plate number of ‘6000’ has gotten into trouble recently. In fact, this is correlated with a string of unfortunate incidents at Causeway and Second Link. Each vehicle also had a  license plate with the number 6000, including the infamous ‘mother and son’ duo that had gone viral re

    A man screams in agony as he gets caught ablaze from a burning car

    A car bursts into flames at an open-air carpark, damaging two other cars and a van parked nearby it.

    Entitled BMW 730LI driver causes a massive 30-minute jam at a carpark gantry over a measly $10 parking fee(?)

    With advanced technologies these days, drivers never (or hardly) get charged with incorrect parking fees. Even if there is such an occurrence, it is often the driver's fault - Eg. Driving out of MSCP without renewing season parking, forgetting to remove cashcard before inserting complimentary parking coupon (The list goes on). And sadly, all we can do as drivers is to suck it up, pay our "tuition fees", and learn from our mistakes. However, this entitled BMW 730LI driver did other
