TL;DR - A man was caught driving under the influence (DUI) into Malaysia as his breathalyzer test exceeded the maximum alcohol limit for drink driving. 

Ever since the borders between Singapore and Malaysia reopened, there have been many incidents reported of Singaporeans getting up to mischief and/or displaying erratic behaviors.  

Here is just one of the many examples:

One good egg does not make a dozen but one bad apple can spoil a barrel. 

What happened? 

A man was caught by the Malaysian police for drink driving into Malaysia. Netizens managed to ‘suss out’ and found that this man is a Singaporean as he was driving a SG-registered car (based on his car plate and in-vehicle unit).   

Under SG law, if you are convicted of drink driving, you can be fined up to $10,000 and jailed for up to a year for first-timers. Repeat offenders can be fined up to $20,000 and jailed for up to two years.

Under Malaysia law, a person convicted of driving or attempting to drive whilst their alcohol level exceeds the prescribed limit, shall be sentenced to imprisonment for a maximum of 2 years and a fine of at least RM10,000 and not more than RM30,000. Upon conviction, the driver shall be disqualified from holding a driver’s license for at least two years.

It is unclear which country would press charges against him, but either way, it's bad. 

Let’s hear from the netizens

‘Orbiquek’... (Singlish ver. of serves you right) 

Kudos to Malaysia's PDRM (a.k.a traffic police) for being so vigilant and arresting the man before he could cause any accident.

Takeaway

Remember to always make good decisions and plan ahead - if you know you're going to drink, don't drive!

Drink and drive is a deadly mix - keep yourself and others around you safe.

  • Self entitled female Karen parks her Harrier on a double yellow, blocks cars from exiting car park at Clementi

    TL;DR - This female Harrier driver double parked her car to go shopping at Clementi’s Sheng Siong supermarket, got unhappy when being called out.  If you didn't already know, the popular term ‘Karen’ is used to describe an entitled and obnoxious middle-aged woman. This lady definitely hopped into the Year of the Rabbit as one.  Watch this 41-second clip to see what I mean. What happened?  This driver decided to park beside a row of vehicles already parked parallel t

    Queue cutters pay the price for trying to use the non-existent fast lane along the causeway

    TL;DR - As Singaporeans flock into Johor Bahru for Christmas shopping, JPJ were deployed to monitor the activities to improve the effectiveness of enforcement of the roads to Malaysia.  As Christmas draws near, Singaporeans get panicky about gift shopping. And that is clearly evident from the number of cars entering into Malaysia, getting fined.  Guess we’re really living up to our Singaporean spirit - kiasu. But not quite the kiasi part.  The JPJ must be internally screaming joy

    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.

    Cam car tries to cut into a McLaren Convoy but gets denied access by a McLaren 720s

    TL;DR - Cam-car's attempt to filter behind the McLaren Convoy was disrupted by a McLaren 720S that sped past to prevent overtaking.  A perfect example of monkey on wheels.   Watch this 33-second video to see how this cam-car tried to sandwich between two McLarens but almost got 'rekt'.  So what happened? The cam-car signaled right with the intention to filter to the next lane behind the McLaren Convoy.  However, his/her attempt failed as a McLaren 720S sped up to pr
