Cam car driver in distress after rear ending a Mini Cooper along Sembawang Road

Cam car driver in distress after rear ending a Mini Cooper along Sembawang Road



TL;DR - Cam car rear ended Mini Cooper along Sembawang Road and seeks advice on what s/he should do next. 

What to do if you hit a car from behind in Singapore?

Watch this 28-second clip of the cam car kissing the back of the Mini Cooper. 

What happened? 

The cam car was traveling a safe distance behind the Mini when the Mini decided to filter lane and brake simultaneously. 

This caused the cam car to bang into it as s/he did not manage to react and e-brake fast enough. 

0% defensive driving skills…

100% zoning out… 

Just a random question I had in mind while watching the video: Is it true that all rear end collisions are caused by the vehicle behind? 

Cautionary Reminder

It is important to keep a safe distance between your vehicle and other vehicles or non-motorists on the road. If you drive a car in Singapore, a following-distance of at least one car length for every 16 km/h of your speed is advised, so that you can come to a stop within a safe distance of the car in front of you. 

Online Chatter 


There seems to be a mini (geddit?) debate in the comments section.

There are people who are siding the cam car, sharing their two cents on this situation.


But of course, the majority has come to a consensus that it is the cam car’s fault. 


To practice road safety in Singapore, you not only need to know the rules set out for you, but you need to be vigilant of all road users, regardless of the type of vehicle. Always keep a safe distance, so that you are not forced to brake abruptly. 

So who do you think is at fault in this rear-end collision? You be the judge in the comments box below.

My MIL say 

Pay up

and don't speed.


That's as good as it gets.

You can tell it's a kuku driver before the accident happened. Why still linger behind a kuku driver? It is just asking for trouble.

Similarly do not linger at the backsides of p-plate cars, pickups driven by FW, rental cars, CD-plate cars and very expensive cars! [laugh]

  • Sparks fly on BKE after motorcyclists collide and knock each other down

    TL;DR: A motorcyclist on BKE knocked another bike down and sent both parties off their bikes, skidding across the road. The rider at fault was surely having a good time going fast, feeling the cool night wind against them as they wove through traffic.  However, they wove one too many times, and are now likely facing a lot of trouble. What happened?  On 21st March 10.40 p.m, at Bukit Timah Expressway, two motorcyclists went into each other after one of them did an abrupt



    ‘Kan Cheong Spider’ blindly drives into yellow junction box onto incoming traffic

    TL;DR - A collision occurred in Yishun between a Kia Forte and Honda Vezel at the yellow junction box.  Every Singaporean would know what it means to be kan cheong. We are basically born to sweat ‘kiasu-ness’.  For our foreign friends, kan cheong simply means impatient, edgy and hasty. So a kan cheong spider just refers to someone who possesses such traits.  Watch this 51-second video of a Honda Vezel colliding into a Kia Forte as it drives out from a minor road straight into the



    Driver fled after crashing a Porsche Macan into a traffic light and overturning

    TL;DR - No way home for this driver as s/he fled the scene after crashing the SUV onto a traffic light and a concrete barrier.  No money, lots of problems.  Too much money, more problems.  Watch this 38-second video of the Porsche Macan going from a high performance car to a useless one.  What happened? The car collided into a temporary traffic light and a concrete barrier at Ophir Road after Beach Road.  It was told that the driver had escaped from the Macan,



    A reckless race between a Lancer and a Scirocco results in a sad BMW X3 and a 2-hour jam

    TL;DR – A Mitsubishi Lancer and a Volkswagen Scirocco were caught on camera speeding along the CTE and overtaking other vehicles using the road shoulder. Unfortunately for one of the two idiots, one of them hit a BMW X3 in the process and went full turtle, causing a 2-hour long jam in its wake.   Lancerlution – It’s the term people use to refer to Mitsubishi Lancers trying their best to be EVOs (like this gum gong gia or a Lancer driver) Multiple angles of this incident
