Toyota Altis deploys a new kind of air brake along the fast lane of the CTE/SLE

TL;DR – A Toyota Altis travelling on the fast lane of the CTE towards Woodlands suddenly found its bonnet flipped up.

 

Never have I ever seen something like this happen on the roads before.

Watch this  30-second video to see what bizarre incident occurred along the CTE recently.

 

What happened

A Toyota Altis travelling on lane 1 of the CTE/SLE (towards Woodlands) came to a halt as its bonnet got flipped up!

Some possible theories?

1.       As the caption of the post suggested. The Altis driver did not secure the bonnet properly before driving off

2.       The Altis driver was travelling at an insane speed, and the wind caught blew the bonnet up

3.       The catch of the bonnet is loose and needs a replacement

Whatever it is, it’s still a rare sight. This driver needs to buy the CNY Toto draw. Sure huat.

The person that created the video did have some sense of humor, especially from the 16th second onwards, the drum note totally ice the humor.

I  had seen cars [even taxis] with bonnet not completely shut, with a little gap probably to keep the engine compartment cooler. They might be using an adapter to latch to the original bonnet hook.

It's kind of weird because even if you don't press down on the bonnet to securely lock it down, the moment you lower the bonnet slowly to a closed position, the weight of the bonnet pressing down, force of gravity alone, will trigger a catch mechanism that will engage (hear a click) and you cannot re-lift the bonnet without manually disengaging the catch mechanism (it's some kind of spring-loaded lever).

  • 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). While it's clear tiny houses aren't going to work out here, the concept of 'tiny living' is; not just physically but also mentally. Anyone who has lived enough years lo
