Impatient Skoda Octavia tries to overtake and gets pit manouevred

Impatient Skoda Octavia tries to overtake and gets pit manouevred



This reminded me of when I was young and addicted to the Asphalt racing games. Remember how you’d boost with nitro and ram into the side of your opponent to prevent them from getting past you?


This one is like that, but with less cool cars.

What happened?

On 5 May 2023, a Skoda Octavia on the ECP Expressway tried to overtake a camcar and ended up getting pit manouevred, causing it to hit the railing.

The Skoda was initially keeping a safe distance behind the camcar, moving left to enter another lane. To the Skoda’s credit they used their signals for this move. 


However, when trying to overtake the camcar, the Skoda misjudged its speed and turned in too early, with the back end of the car still within reach of the camcar.



We can’t see if the Skoda turned on its turn signal in the footage. If it did, some blame can be shifted to the camcar for not slowing down for it.

But looking at the footage, we can also see the Skoda took no time to check if it cleared the camcar and went for the overtake very quickly. So regardless if the camcar made a mistake, the majority of the blame is still squarely on the Skoda. 

Fortunately the accident does not seem severe, as the Skoda got away with some minor damage to it’s exterior.



Online chatter
Some netizens seem to think that the camcar sped up in the footage, and that they were hogging the lane. 


Others just blame the skoda for being impatient and overtaking.

  • 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



    Fatal accident involving BMW 3 series leaves 1 dead, 3 hospitalised

    What happened? A man was killed in an accident on Sunday, 2.05pm at the junction of Dunearn Road and Shelford Road near Tan Kah Kee MRT station.

    Nissan Qashqai driver forced to queue twice after trying to use bus lane to enter SG

    I have a question: Why do so many of you guys like to go JB during ”long weekends” when all the extra day or two does is give you more time to sit in a jam? Not judging, just feel like I’d turn back after the first hour. This guy had to turn back no matter how long he waited though.  What happened?  Two Nissan Qashqais thought they could cheat the system and decided to use the bus/goods vehicle lane to get a shorter queue in SG during Labour Day.  Howeve

    BMW driver blocks traffic junction, chases woman around

    To clarify, I have nothing against BMW or their drivers. I grew up playing Need For Speed Most Wanted and still think the Most Wanted M3 GTR is one of the best fictional cars ever created. The 2009 M5 is one of the most impressive saloons to me due to the monstrous 5.0 litre V10 engine, the first of its kind among super saloons.   However, I am afraid that whenever there is a traffic incident with a BMW, it is pretty memorable to say the least.    What happened?
