Cam car catches police car violating traffic laws

Cam car catches police car violating traffic laws



TL;DR- Police car made illegal U-turn, facebook comments are wrong


The comments section are once again alight with intelligent debate (swearing and accusations) and civilised discourse (putting down others and placing yourself as the superior person). Just another day on Facebook.


What happened?

On 23 March, 9,36p.m, a cam car caught a police car making an illegal U-turn at Braddell Flyover.


Cue shocked gasps. You can even hear the cam car driver say “What the…” when the police car cut him off in the footage. 

However, Facebook says otherwise, with many comments defending the police car and saying it is the cam car’s fault. 


But are they actually right? 


The confusing road of Braddell Flyover

This is the road that the cam car and police car was on in the video. As we can see, the road signs both have arrows indicating that drivers on this lane need to go right. 


However, why is this so? Seems redundant to have two lanes to go in the same direction. Besides this, the two cars in front of the cam and police car went in the same direction, and not the one indicated on the road, i.e straight. So are they wrong as well? 


They aren’t. The police car really is in the wrong. This is because all parties are really turning right, but to a different degree of right. Here’s a diagram from another Facebook user to explain, with arrows indicating what car was going where. 


The police car was actually making a U-turn, but was in the wrong lane to do so. Furthermore, there was no U-turn sign visible. The cam car was not in the wrong as they would be allowed to drive “straight”, and the police car should have been in the cam car’s lane too in order to execute that turn LEGALLY. 

In conclusion, police car confirm wrong.

  • Drunk driver refuses to go hospital after crashing into a tree

    Whatever he drank, it has to be something the servers go “you sure?” upon ordering one. Watch to see why! What happened? A camcar recorded managed to capture footage of a white car while travelling on Adam Road in the wee hours of the morning. 4.15 A.M is not an ideal time to be awake but I respect the hustle. Whoever was in the white car was most certainly not hustling though. As seen in the footage, the car rammed into a tree, cutting down a tree using sheer horsepower (I



    Robbers target the occupants of a Toyota in JB, leaving a bloody mess

    You might want to reconsider your next holiday destination after this story.    What happened?  3 robbers robbed a man from his car while in front of Teega Suites in JB at the drop-off lobby.   The robbers used weapons such as hatchets and a machete in order to break the Toyota’s windows and harm the victim.  The Toyota was unable to move due to a Honda Civic blocking his way, and an unidentified white car at the back, leaving the victim stuck in the ca



    Powered bicycle exceeds 60km/h while playing with ‘lightsabers’

    Another day, another PAB/PMD story. Why is it always the younger people using these?   What happened?  At 1.32 A.M, a PMD and PAB (Power Assisted Bicycle) were spotted going over 60km/h on Jalan Eunos.    The PMD is initially in the lead but that changes at 0:34 in the video, when the PAB surges past the PMD like a turbo kicked in.   Impressively, it looks like this was all while the PAB rider was using one hand to keep the bike steady as he held a f



    Driver heartbroken after reckless GetGo driver rams into his 'baby'

    TL;DR - GetGo driver thinks he’s in Tokyo Drift and crashes into 3 cars. Learns there are consequences to his actions.  Prayers for the original poster of this video for keeping his cool. I know I wouldn’t if I was in his position. Read on to see why.   What happened?  On 18th April in a Punggol multi-storey car park, a 23 year old GetGo driver was speeding at 50km/h and hit 3 cars that were parked together. We can see that a Kia Cerato, Mitsubishi Outlander and a v
