Becareful of Ubi Autobacs

Recommended Posts

1st Gear

Raining very heavily this afternoon and any bros here going to Ubi Autobacs on rainy days please please be extra careful when manoeuvring in Autobacs Ubi carpark.

The flooring has almost no friction when the floor is wet.

 

Was there this afternoon, while doing and right turn trying to exit the carpark, very gently tapped on the brakes and whole car skidded and buang onto the auto barrier.

Wasnt even speeding at all. If you all notice, it is also very slippery even when you are walking.

 

Barrier box a bit slanted and barrier cannot work anymore. Awaiting quote for the damage. $$$$ fly.

 

This is just a warning to all bros, unnecessary comments is not welcomed.

 

Would be good if anyone in this line knows the rough $$ damage of the repair of the barrier....

In the US, for instance, nobody would stand for this sort of nonsense. They would sue the shop for the costs and more. Don't be a guai guai Singaporean, times are changing.

A very rough estimate for the barrier unit : S$2K for new replacement unit.

AutoBac carpark flooring was smooth cement finished and that's why very poor friction.

Even our MSCP also slippery during wet-day too !
