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 it’s a very tight pocket of space too.

But, that’s not all, the Wish then blatantly beats the red light too!

Which then also results in another car almost t-boning it.

The heck is wrong with this driver?

How many demerit points?

Let’s count the number of demerit points this new driver racked up shall we?

Failing to conform to traffic signals – 12 points

Reckless or dangerous driving (where no hurt is caused) – 24 points

Stats taken from: https://sso.agc.gov.sg/ - it's legit

That’s a whopping 36 points!

There are some people who commented that new drivers now only have 12 points to lose instead of the 13 I had in my time (I’m old dammit).

But, even so, 36 is way past 12 or 13!

Important to note that whether hurt or no hurt was caused, it’s a straight 24-point deduction. With hurt could include a higher fine or possibly jail time.

This driver needs to get a call from Singapore Traffic Police and think about his/her actions for the next two years before being allowed to retake a new license.

Hopefully the traffic police will take action and make sure this idiot go back to school to learn how to drive all over again. This is a terrorist.

Actually the side impact could have killed the driver. Losing points will be kacang puteh compared to death.
