TL;DR - A Mercedes driver in the wrong lane gets out of his car and argues with another motorcyclist about his situation at Woodlands Checkpoint.

 

We’ve all heard about the BlueSG entering the Checkpoint by accident, now this driver enters the motorcycle lane (by accident??)

Watch this 49-second interaction between the Merc driver and another motorcyclist:

What happened

The video starts with the cam car (or rather, cam motorcyclist) being directed into the motorcycle lane from another lane.

At 0.09 we see the reason why – a white Mercedes was parked at the entrance of the motorcycle lane, blocking any incoming motorcycle traffic.

Disgruntled at the inconvenience, he mumbles

Quote

“Bodoh Sia”

Which probably triggered a response from the Merc driver who was standing not far away.

The Quarrel

This unleashed a heated exchange of unpleasantries – The merc driver arguing his case while the cam motorcyclist berates him for being ‘arrogant’, ‘stupid’ and an ‘idiot’.

My personal favourite: “Drive Salah still want to argue”.

What the Merc driver wanted to do or was trying to do, is not evident from the video. But, this whole argument could have been avoided if the merc driver just apologised for the inconvenience he caused, regardless of the reason why he was there in the first place.

At least there was no violence!

What Netizens Are Saying

In what world did the Merc driver think that a car could fit into a lane for motorcycles?

We could give the merc driver the benefit of doubt, but is it really that hard to see that all cars are going one direction while motorcycles are going the other? His body language doesn't show any signs of remorse either.

It is very strange of people these days. In the wrong and yet do not feel apologetic or any sign of remorseful at all. Material wise successful but moral wise is a total failure. What a shame really.

it is ok. In sg, it is important to be materially successful. Never mind morally a failure. That is the culture we try to promote, isn't it?  

Actually no. But sadly many lost their human nature core value and are behaving as material as successful, hence the self entitlement and monkey see monkey do.

  • Cyclists pay no heed to traffic and blocks entire lane at West Coast Highway

    TL;DR - Cyclists blocked the entire lane at West Coast highway and failed to conform to red light.  Agree to disagree: Cyclists are the true king of the road.  Watch this 57-second video to see what I mean.  What happened?  The peloton were seen taking up the lane at West Coast highway and failed to conform to traffic regulations by beating the red light.  This seems to be a norm amongst cyclists in Singapore - to gather in large groups and cycle on the roads.

    A taxi and a Toyota Corolla Altis travel on the fast lane of the causeway, but only one gets caught by the Malaysian police?

    TL:DR – A Singaporean-registered Altis and a Trans cab travel on the fast lane of the causeway, but only the Altis gets apprehended by the Malaysian police.   There are no shortcuts in life. Likewise, in recent times, there have been no shortcuts on the causeway. If you’re sick and tired of waiting in the queue, you can always try your luck on the fast lane. You might get away with it, and you might not. Just like these two vehicles in the 43-second video below.

    A reckless race between a Lancer and a Scirocco results in a sad BMW X3 and a 2-hour jam

    TL;DR – A Mitsubishi Lancer and a Volkswagen Scirocco were caught on camera speeding along the CTE and overtaking other vehicles using the road shoulder. Unfortunately for one of the two idiots, one of them hit a BMW X3 in the process and went full turtle, causing a 2-hour long jam in its wake.   Lancerlution – It’s the term people use to refer to Mitsubishi Lancers trying their best to be EVOs (like this gum gong gia or a Lancer driver) Multiple angles of this incident

    Mitsubishi Lancer loses control and skids at a bend along Keppel Viaduct, crashing multiple times into the barricades

    TL;DR - Reckless Lancer driver speeds, loses control and crashes into barricades upon skidding along Keppel Viaduct.  Watch this 51-second video to see the dramatic skid.  So what happened?  On a rainy day, this Lancer was caught speeding and overtaking another vehicle along Keppel Viaduct.  After it overtook the car, the driver somehow lost vehicle traction, which caused the Lancer to crash on the left side’s concrete barrier. This was not all, the vehicle spun and
