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.

    Charming looks, go-kart handling, and a cabin that delivers on usability mean the MINI One should be your ideal companion for the road Finding a life partner is no easy feat. It is only natural to look for someone who's sensible because household expenses can quickly spiral out of control with inflation rates the way they are today. But on the flip side, a fair amount of zaniness is also warranted, for added flavour during those holidays and weekends out. And of course, the fact that he/she i



    A cam car driver takes to social media to complain about a modded Hyundai i30 but do the complaints have any merit?

    A video of a Hyundai i30 nearly driving into a cam car has been uploaded on Facebook. But who really is at fault? Watch the video to decide.   Watch the video of how the incident unfolded here: In the video, the cam car is casually driving straight down Eunos Road, when the Hyundai i30 seen dashes out, almost causing himself a massive T-bone.  Luckily the cam car driver was quick enough to jam brake.

    Yet another CMI BlueSG driver causes an accident by running a red light and getting t-boned by another car

    Touch your heart and tell me the worst type of driver on the road - In most cases, it's either car-sharing drivers or the drivers of the lethal red car plate + p-plate combination.  IMO, car sharing drivers are the worst type of drivers as they lack both driving experience and skills and also simply don't give a [email protected] about the publicly-shared car. Watch this video here: What Happened? A BlueSG leisurely ran a red light signal along Outram Road and got t-boned HARD b



    A cam car tries to shame two Honda Civic Type-Rs online, but the plan backfires faster than when that VTEC kicks in

    TL;DR – A driver of a cam car (make and model unknown) took their grievances online to shame two Honda Civic Type-R drivers for dangerous driving. Unfortunately, things did not work out as planned. Netizens ended up flaming the driver of the cam car instead.   A cam car driver was overtaken by not one but TWO Honda Civic Type-Rs along the CTE and decided to call out the two Type-R drivers for reckless and dangerous driving. In an unexpected twist, netizens started flaming the cam
