TL;DR - A speeding Audi A4 driver knocks down a motorcyclist and pillion before driving away. The driver eventually gets arrested for suspected drink driving. 

 

Drink-driving cases in Singapore are on the rise after our nations battle with Covid-19.

While people are getting more brazen post-covid, it takes a very special kind of human to speed, hit another vehicle and run away... WHILE DRUNK (at friggin 8am in the morning)

Watch this 47-second shocker of a video.

So what happened?

The cam car caught the A4 speeding (way over the limit, that’s for sure) and colliding into a motorcyclist and pillion, sending them off the bike. Several road users rushed to help the injured but the culprit did not bother to stop and instead, fled the scene. 

According to the caption, the driver was eventually apprehended and arrested for suspected drink driving. 

Drink driving carries a heavy penalty in Singapore.

In fact, to deter anyone else from drink driving, we even have a colleague who got caught drink driving and wrote about his experience! The consequence doesn't sound fun at all. 

With my civic duty done, let's look at some nasty comments shall we?

Folks, always remember: No matter how good your alcohol tolerance is, the immediate effect makes it extremely dangerous to engage in any activity requiring skill, attention and coordinated movements. That includes driving!

If the drunk Audi driver crashed into a tree instead then another COE released and next round COE bidding may have Happy Lunar New Year.

  • Is 'tiny living' really irrelevant in Singapore?

    I discussed the possibility of living in tiny houses in Singapore in an earlier blog post. But as we know, it isn't an option to begin with – no thanks, of course, to our lack of land space.  Someone also pointed out that the idea of tiny houses is "romanticised" – which, I don't deny (but hey, that's why it's a dream).
