SINGAPORE - They sped down Lim Chu Kang Road in similar cars and clocked almost equal breakneck speeds in their illegal race.

On Tuesday (Sept 10), Goh Tze Ming, 37, and Khairulanwar Ismail, 26, were given the same sentence - five weeks' jail and a $1,500 fine each.

They will also be disqualified from driving all classes of vehicles for three years after their release.

 

The men, who were both driving a Volkswagen GTI, had denied that they were involved in the illegal race, which took place on Dec 9, 2016.

The pair also similarly claimed trial against the charge of illegal racing, an offence under the Road Traffic Act.

During the hearing, Goh said that he had been rushing to go to the toilet, while Khairulanwar claimed that he was speeding because he wanted to check his engine check-light.

 
 

Deputy Public Prosecutor Senthilkumaran Sabapathy rubbished the claims, calling them "illogical, unsubstantiated and unbelievable".

 

He added: "It is simply implausible and fanciful that (they) happened to be speeding, at almost twice the speed limit and right next to each other, at a place where a race was ongoing at the material time."

The court heard that the two men were arrested by Traffic Police (TP) officers during a sting operation led by Inspector Pardeep Dass, who had received intelligence that there was going to be an illegal race in the area.

Together with two other TP officers, Insp Pardeep arrived at the scene in an unmarked car. The officers saw people standing around 40 vehicles parked along Lim Chu Kang Road towards Neo Tiew Road.

At 1.07am, the cars driven by Goh and Khairulanwar were seen making a U-turn towards Jalan Bahar before coming to a stop side by side for about 10 seconds.

Insp Pardeep then saw both cars speeding off at the same time. The TP officers were activated to pursue them.

Goh was caught driving at 132kmh, while Khairulanwar had clocked 136kmh - nearly twice the speed limit of 70kmh.

Both men will also start their sentences on the same date - Sept 19.

To be caught, fined, jailed & licences gone for speeding at 130-136kph really not worth it.   Knowing that its illegal to race, should have done it at much higher speeds for boasting rights.

They were most likely going faster, but just clocked at those speeds.

Street racing at less than 140km/h? Either somebody pang chance or the police are using substandard equipment. Why buy a GTi when a Myvi can cruise at that speed along NSHW ... 🤣

But the added 30kg can aid stability at higher speeds.  Lol......

Golf GTI is really disappointing - only clocked 130 plus on such long stretch.... Illegal cruising rather than racing.

PS Maybe they will share the same cell and become best of buddies.

Exactly, cross the border to malaysia can do 200 over with just Rm300 fine if caught by camera.

 

To all - please only exceed 40 over when driving in malaysia where fines are a token S$100 each.
