Red Transcab Prius terrorises school zone by cutting into oncoming traffic lane

Red Transcab Prius terrorises school zone by cutting into oncoming traffic lane



Is encountering slower drivers on the road an excuse to do a dangerous overtake? Watch this video and decide for yourself.


Watch as the incident unfolds just outside of a school:

In the video, we can see that the Transcab Prius is attempting to do an overtake, using the lane with potential oncoming traffic.


Super dangerous move. If there actually was oncoming traffic, the head-on collision would certainly have a high chance of fatality, especially considering the speeds that the taxi driver is travelling at. 


The taxi driver finally overtakes successfully. But at what cost? Crossing a continuous white line could potentially net the taxi driver demerit points. Is it really wise to save that few seconds for demerit points, that can cause a taxi driver his rice bowl? Probably not. 


We meet angry netizens again. This time, one of them says that it would be better to have his license revoked. Looking at the circumstances, we would be inclined to agree.


Yet another angry netizen. But this time he takes the side of the taxi driver, saying that the camcar is road hogging. He even gains the support of 26 other netizens with the number of likes and reacts. Despite the overwhelming support this commenter got, we still believe that the taxi driver's actions was not warranted, especially when it was a in a school zone. In fact not only a school zone, but a school with students with special needs. This just makes the whole situation more dangerous to everyone.


So it seems that this case divides opinion. Regardless of what your opinion is of the situation, we advise the utmost caution when driving near school zones, and to be alert for any students whop may be playing near or even on the road.

I think the sentence by the netizen calling the camcar road hogging is unwarranted. The camcar is most probably a van or minibus. And school zone speed limit is 40km/h. How fast does one expect vehicle to travel in school zone? We don't want another fatal school student crashed by speeding car case. 😕

Go slow won't die; go fast may die.

  • Clubbers watch out, your taxi driver might be as drunk as you

    Taxi drivers are our saviours when we’ve had one too many drinks too late in the night, especially when public transport has ended. But I think no matter how many drinks they've had, even this passenger can tell something has gone horribly wrong. What happened? A cyclist in Anchorvale was having a cool, relaxing ride at the PCN (Park Connector Network) when they saw a taxi that definitely was not supposed to be there. The exclamation of “Yo, what the f*** boi??” sums up



    Content creator declares Singaporeans as the worst drivers, almost everyone agrees

    You might disagree with her, but you’ll be hard pressed to find much evidence against her case. What happened? Content creator and entrepreneur Wendi Chan, better known as @pinkkittywendi has been stirring the pot by making the bold but likely true statement that Singaporeans are the worst drivers and/or the most inconsiderate drivers in the world. If you are angered at the above statement, I present to you all our existing articles. And SGRV. She uses the example of



    Daring PMD riders go 80km/h in MCE, drivers enraged at lack of action

    If PMD can travel at 80km/h, why is my grab order so slow to travel? What happened? The footage shows the PMDs going much faster than the camcar while Chinese music blares in the background.  While the MCE is fairly empty at the time of recording, it does not change the fact that using a PMD on the expressway is illegal and unsafe in the event of an accident. If caught, first-time offenders face a fine of up to S$2,000 or up to three months in jail, or both. Repeat offe



    PAB rider gets run over after ignoring stop line at a junction, demands over $5000 in compensation

    The brakes on the car must be good, rider was wearing no protection and still escaped unscathed. What happened? On 11 September 2023, at Yishun Industrial Street 1 (because OF COURSE it was at Yishun), a food delivery rider on a PAB (Power Assisted Bicycle) ignored a stop line at a junction and was subsequently hit by a car. The car was going at around 30km/h and unable to avoid the rider, who was already onto the road and stopped moving like a deer in headlights. U
