  1. Hi, a newbie here. Seeking for insurance claim advice on a minor car accident I got into recently. This is the first time I'm owning a car and also the first time I got into a car accident. However, I am sure I am a pretty safe driver and have been driving for more than 6 years. I was driving home (into a private estate) and in this estate, there is only one lane in and out. It is a daily occurrence for cars to park on the left side of the road. Hence, I had to drive on the right lane in. This is when a lady who exited her house came out and our cars collided. I have filed a third party claim but the insurance company (AXA) rejected it as they claimed that I was going against traffic directions. I was shocked because the dashcam video I sent clearly shows that there are cars on the left lane. The lady who reported my case for me told me that the officer in charge is firm on her stance that it is my fault as I am on the wrong side of the road, and that the lady who exited her house only needs to check for traffic in her direction. Firstly, I ensured there are no cars heading out before turning into the road. After turning in, a lorry was driving out of a minor road in front of me. I slowed down but there were no signs of the lorry driver stopping. As such, I had to use my horn to warn the driver of my presence and also slowed down further, almost to a stop. After the lorry driver came to a complete stop, I continued on the road and this is when a car exited her house hitting into my car front RH section. I would like to reiterate that I have slowed down as I had just made a turn, and had to slow down further due to the lorry exiting Chong Kuo Road. I am certain I am driving at an acceptable speed for the road. Secondly, I am also aware that I am driving against the traffic direction. However, with cars parked on the left side, there is no other way for me to drive home. As shown in the video, there are cars parked on the left side, right outside the third party's house. In this case, shouldn't AXA take this into consideration? Furthermore, she is also a resident of this private estate and she should have known that she has to check both sides before exiting her house. In fact, they own more than one car and also park their cars on the road. Last but not least, when I alighted my car after the accident, a man, who seems to be her family member (also in the video), repeatedly mentioned to the driver that she didn't check the road before exiting the house, to which she did not refute. This differs from the statement she provided to AXA (she said she checked the traffic before heading out but I came at a fast speed, hitting her car). As there is a 14 day period for me to file my claim, I've followed the authorized workshop's advice, to file under own damage claim, before carrying on with the case. Otherwise, I would have to wait to get my car's repairs. I was told that chances are I can only claim 50 50 in this case and I had also heard from people that going for own damage claim ruins my chances at the third party claim. Thus, I am now worried that the appeal does not go through. I have attached the video for reference, and I would like to get an opinion on whether AXA's decision is fair. Otherwise, is there anything else I can do for myself to get a fair judgment? Sorry for the poor video quality. I purchased this car just a couple of months back and I did not check the camera settings. 2021-01-05_11-40-48-Normal_Front Camera.avi
  2. Hi, I did not expect my first post for year 2021 would be to report an accident which happened earlier. Here are the details: Vehicles involved: Motorcycle (Grab Food delivery) and Honda Odyssey Registration plate: Too blur as it happen on the middle lane (lane 2), while I was driving on lane 1 a distance away Location: PIE towards Changi Airport, just after Mount Pleasant flyover Date/time: 15th January 2021, 14:24:17 hrs I have the video footage from my front dashcam, but as it was a slight bend and I was driving on lane 1, the video playback could not show the license registration plates clearly. But it did show the circumstances where the Grabfood motorcycle clipped the left rear of the Odyssey. I sincerely hope the motorcyclist a quick recovery. Shall not write too much, and should the motorcyclist or Odyssey need the video footage, please PM me. Lastly, do drive, ride and walk safe, all road users !

  6. 119810553_1098858070552615_6169005424589589203_n.mp4 "Hey man, where's the fire?", is what one should be asking the driver of the white Toyota. From the look of the video, the driver was going way too fast. If he wasn't rushing to a fire, maybe he was rushing off for something else... But let's not digress. As the old adage goes, "if you want to do something stupid, make sure others don't get hurt". Well, guess the driver of the Toyota didn't get the memo too. Speeding like a madman, fine. Crash into the central divider, it's your fault so live with it. But knocking into someone else after crashing your car? Not cool, man. Especially since the other car was minding their own business until they got a rude jolt because another car crashed into them. Stay safe, people. If you want to speed, buy a PlayStation or Xbox and get those racing simulator games like Gran Turismo or Forza. A lot cheaper and a whole lot safer.
  7. https://goodyfeed.com/motorcyclist-sambar-deer/ Injured motorcyclist sues LTA, NParks over sambar deer collision in Upper Thomson..... I think LTA's fault - it should ban all motorcyclists from the road. No motorcyclist, no motorcycle accident. Problem solved! PS he should include the sambah Deer as co-defendant!
  8. What do you do when the lights turn amber? Do you floor the accelerator and hope to make it past, or would you depress the brake pedal and slow down like what your driving instructor taught? The driver of this black SUV probably hopes he had went with the latter. Look what Netizens have to say of the incident... These commenters actually have a good point, by keeping a safe distance and preparing to stop (slow down when approaching traffic junctions!), many accidents such as this can be avoided. So, remember, keep a distance, stay sharp and always be prepared to stop, then you won't have to deal with the headache when your car looks like this.

    Freak Car Accident

    This morning I heard a loud Bing Kiak....Pong freaking noise, turn around took a good look with shocks and snap some pictures. God blessed nobody were injure when it happened in a split of a second [ attachment=82943:Pic_s_for_MCF_009.jpg]
  10. Saw this shocking footage on ROADS.sg Facebook page, the first thought that came across my mind was, woah, the rider was literally centimetres away from death! Really, the spot his helmet contacted the ground was in the direct path of the Honda Vezel's front left tyre! Unsurprisingly the comment section was filled with praises for the driver of the Honda Vezel. Indeed, it was the driver's attentive driving and lightning-quick reflexes that saved the rider's life. In fact, it looks like he had damaged his car in the process of dodging the fallen biker - a truly selfless move! As for what caused the rider to fell over, there were some speculations: Seems like it could've been due to exhaustion or issues with the bike. At the end of the day, we need to remember that, as drivers, we should always be attentive, and aware of the surroundings - put down that phone! Be it a driver or a biker, we should always aim to get on the road only after getting sufficient rest, and also to keep our vehicles in tip-top condition. That way, we can all stay safe on the roads. You can watch the full video on ROADS.sg's Facebook page
  11. Should the LTA re-design this section of the CTE? Posted on Beh Chia Lor's Facebook page is this footage following a chain collision on the Central Tunnel Expressway, which supposedly happened just last evening (24 November 2020), right before the exit towards Upper Serangoon Road (headed towards the City). 121785318_1469103789947798_1184767733337672283_n.mp4 From what we can tell from the video, it looks like up to six vehicles where involved in the accident, including one tipper lorry! (watch from the start of the video) Netizens seem to be in agreement about the danger of the road layout along this section of the CTE... What do you guys think? Is a re-design in order? Should a highway even allow so many cars to be crisscrossing each other to begin with? Should the section of the PIE that follows after (prior to the exit onto the KPE) be looked into as well? Tell us below!
  12. This is why, in driving school, the instructors are always going on and on and on about checking for oncoming traffic when making a discretionary right turn, because you never know who or what might be coming from the other side. At the junction of North Coast Road and Woodlands Ave 9, this motorcyclist unfortunately did forget what he learned in driving school, seeing as he took off without fully checking if there were any other oncoming vehicles. Thankfully for him, his bike seemed to take the brunt of the impact, even though the rider did go flying in the air a little. He even is able to look up after landing beside the taxi. The taxi also seems to have slowed down just enough before impact. Sometimes, taking those extra few seconds to check for oncoming traffic while making a discretionary turn won't hurt. Especially if your view of oncoming traffic is blocked by a large vehicle. Better late than injured or worst, right?
  13. My car skidded and I went to make a claim. My car insurance company gave me 2 choices: 1) Claim total loss - $45k 2) Claim repair cost - Car Repair Cost $16k+/- after reducing the market value of my car, insurance company is only willing to pay $9k( they called it Economic Repair Limit) so I got to fork out $8k out of my own pocket. Which option would you guys take? Is there a third option?
  14. A video from @SG Road Vigilante has been circulating showing an Alfa Romeo hitting the road kerb before lurching to the right and flipping over! The incident happened along the long stretch of road before the State Courts and the Ministry of Manpower. The car suffered extensive damage throughout this incident. Credits: Mothership It is definitely a well-loved car, with one sgCarMart consumer reviewer, Michaelkoh, describing the car as something, "Under the radar gem. (With) Striking design and styling without the excessive price tag. Definitely a top consideration for those looking for cars in the $100-120k range." After searching on our sgCarMart used car section, we found that there isn't any current pre-owned Giuletta in the market. If you guys are looking out for an Alfa Romeo Giulietta for your next ride, please keep a lookout for one with an uneven sloping roof and perhaps tyres that are painted with "POTENZA" in white.
  15. I had a small accident with this cheapo aluminum ladder. When I first step on it, the step broke off, 6 aluminum rivets are sheared off at the same time. Hurt my feet a little bit and marble floor suffered some chips. Luckily I am not at the top of the steps when it decide to break. I had earlier replaced the top step rivets with bolts and nuts, but the bottom step caught me off-guard. So if you have this kind of ladder, better have a second look, or maybe throw it away for own safety. Granted the ladder was quite old, I didn't use it much, the rivets may have corroded away. But I'd rather have a step ladder that doesn't do this.
  16. A CEMENT-MIXER driver has been charged over the fatal crash in Tampines which claimed the lives of two brothers and cast the spotlight on heavy vehicles and road safety. Munir Mohd Naim, 57, is claiming trial to causing the deaths of Nigel Yap Yew Cheong, 13, and Donavan Yap Teck Siong, seven, by a negligent act at the traffic light cross-junction of Tampines Avenue 9 and Tampines Street 45 on Jan 28. Nigel was cycling and taking his brother - who was riding pillion - home after school when they were struck by the cement mixer at about 5.40pm. Munir Mohd allegedly failed to keep a proper lookout while making a left turn from Tampines Avenue 9 into Street 45 when the traffic light was showing "green" in his favour.

  17. Hi, Asking on behalf for my friend. Lane go straight n turn left. Car signal left far ahead, turning left, motor go straight and rear ended car on back left of the car. Car owner can claim motor owner insurance?
  18. I am just super down on my luck, this is my 2nd accident during this CB. 1st accident, a bike was speeding and dash out from a bend road and fell infront of my car as i was about to turn out, no impact but I took the blame and settle all claims. Just last weekend, i was stationary at the traffic lights and a merc dash straight at my rear and smash my back, the impact so great that my car moved forward and hit the other car infront. I am current very stressed up, VW & MSIG insurance said will settle my car for me but my wife was seriously injured, they asked me to engage a lawyer as they do not do claim for that. I thought insurance would covered everything. I am the driver that day, and my wife was passenger, the car smash on her side (left rear). i assume that driver realised she about to slam into my car and turned her wheel. I just want to seek advise how to go about it. My wife hit her neck and spine due the impact, and doc say might affected her nerve at her lower spine. Her whole body seem to be in pain. I am lucky that i was hold my wheel, so the impact was minimized.
  19. 2 hospitalised after chain collision involving 5 cars along Central Expressway source: https://mothership.sg/2020/08/cte-5-cars-accident/ The police were alerted to an accident along the Central Expressway (CTE) towards the Seletar Expressway (SLE) at about 5:20pm on Aug. 28, CNA reported. The accident involved five cars, with one car mounted onto what appears to be a Porsche car which collided with another car in front of them. Videos of the accident have been circulating on social media. A 56-year-old driver and his 58-year-old passenger from one of the cars were conscious when they were sent to Tan Tock Seng Hospital. Police investigations are ongoing.

    Feedback on hazard

    Below is an accident video captured from my rear view camera. A car was exiting carpark service road onto main road and collided with an oncoming bicycle carrying an adult and a child. I believe the accident occurred because both the driver's view to whatever is coming from the left and also the cyclist's view of car exiting are blocked by a cluster of plants. So I wrote an email to the town council to suggest removal of the plant cluster hazard. The above photos and the accident video were attached. The next day, the plant cluster was gone. I just want to share this case with MCF. If you observe hazards on your daily drive, do feedback to the relevant authority to take action. Our HDB estates have similar pattern so this type of hazards could be common. If you are aware please do feedback. I am sorry that the accident happened but I think it had an impact to push people to take action. I myself am guilty of that. I should have taken action earlier. I am ok if you want to use my video and photos as ref to feedback for your own cases to take action.

  22. 15-Year-Old Crashes Father’s Taxi While Taking It For A Spin, Gets 18 Months’ Probation source: https://mustsharenews.com/15-year-old-taxi/ 15-Year-Old To Serve 100-Hour Community Service After Taking Father’s Taxi On Joyride The legal age for someone to drive in Singapore stands at 18 years old, and for good reason. Yet in Oct 2019, Sean Chan Wei Lun – then 15 years old – took his father’s taxi for a spin with his friends and crashed into a building. He was sentenced to 18 months’ probation and 100 hours of community service on Friday (5 Jun). 15-year-old crashes father’s taxi in Marsiling According to TODAY, Chan – who is now 16 – took his father’s car keys without permission at around 12.20am on 23 Oct 2019. Chan then brought 2 friends on a joyride, despite not knowing how to operate the taxi himself. The underage driver lost control of the vehicle while making a left turn at the junction of Riverside Road and Marsiling Industrial Estate Road 8 — mounting a kerb and uprooting a stop sign before crashing into a wall. The collision punctured both left tyres and severely damaged the vehicle’s front. Chan’s friends – aged 15 and 14 – sustained multiple injuries as a result of the incident. The former suffered deep cuts to his lips and abrasions to his chest. The younger of the 2 dislocated his foot, had lacerations on his lips, as well as abrasions to his right forearm. 15-year-old’s relationship with father soured after incident On Friday (5 Jun), Chan was sentenced to 18 months’ probation for 3 charges. During the period, he will be required to remain indoors from 10pm-6am. He also has to perform 100 hours of community service. Chan’s father was reportedly absent during the hearing due to health reasons. However, District Judge May Mesenas said the pair’s relationship has soured after the incident, reported TODAY. In relation to this, She told the younger Chan that he should reconcile with his father during his probation. Hope he mends relationship with his father We hope Chan learns from this incident and will be successful in mending his relationship with his father. Driving without a proper license is extremely dangerous and can result in serious injuries and even death.

    This is why power is nothing without control

    We always hear the phrase "power is nothing without control" In this latest blog post, we now can show you exactly what that phrase means. Shared furiously among many Whatapp chats is a video of a recent accident involving a Nissan R35 GT-R losing control in one of the tunnels of the CTE. The matt silver GT-R which does not look stock at all, should be producing quite a bit more than the stock 480bhp (an remap will easily bring the power figures near 600bhp). It can be seen barreling along the tunnel on 11 July 2020 at quite a high speed before losing it all and smashing into the rear of a Mercedes-Benz CLS350. What did you think made the driver lose control of his AWD GT-R? Could it be a case of malfunction on the car that caused the car to go bonkers? Let us in the comment box!
  24. A video of an accident between an AETOS car and a taxi has become viral. The video was uploaded on Singapore Road Accident's Facebook page less than 13 hours ago and has since garnered 267 shares! If you haven't seen the video, here you go! In the video, the AETOS driver makes a right turn when the right-turn arrow is in the red. The oncoming taxi was unable to brake in time and crashed head-on into the side of the AETOS car. How do we know this? The video is so blurred! It's a simple skill of deduction, my dear Watson. Spot it? Just in case, here's how it should look to make a proper right turn. Now compare it with the screenshot above. Potong Jalan siol A few second after the crash, the AETOS driver starts shouting (to no one in particular): "Potong Jalan siol." I always thought that this phrase meant "steal" or "walked away". Like "I potong jalan-ed his girlfriend." Ooooh. Thanks, Smart Local! I digress. There was no way the taxi “potong-ed” the AETOS driver because the taxi had the right of way. If you don’t speak Malay, you might have missed this I went through the video with my Malay-speaking colleagues, and they picked up something interesting. At 0.33 – 0.35 ish of the video, the driver says "Kau suroh jalan eh?" - "you said move eh?". This was probably directed to the passenger who told him to go ahead and make the turn at the start of the video. This AETOS driver damn fast to push blame sia. What the people say Another guy caught it too! And, yes, I hope everyone is fine as well. It was quite a hard crash. Agreed. There’s always a practical commenter. Is it?
