  1. 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.

  4. 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.
  5. 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?
  6. 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.

  9. 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!
  11. 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?

  13. A video of a Toyota Vios racer wannabe losing control on All Singapore Stuff's Facebook page has gone viral! In a short span of one hour, the video has gathered 170 likes and 61 shares! If you haven't seen the video, here you go, courtesy of All Singapore Stuff LMAO It's a short 17-second video that you can't help just playing over again and again and laughing your ass off. In the video, you'll see the Toyota Vios speeding pass the dashcam driver like an F1 race car as both cars approach a gradual bend. The keyword here is GRADUAL. Somehow, the Vios manages to spin out of control and hits the cement portion of the highway barrier… not once but twice. Ouch. Damages This incident so viral that even my father sent me pictures of the accident. Looks bad for the poor Vios. And the irony of it all The sign says “BE PATIENT I’M LOWERED”. Can you not see the irony in this? Here’s a zoomed-in view. What the people say Yeah, lucky siol. Some resourceful people managed to find the driver's IG handle. This post made me LOL again. I think he's not smiling, he crying.

    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]
  15. On and off, we have came across news about parents leaving their kid in locked car or at home, while rushing to run errands, but mostly nothing serious happened to the helpless young ones. This latest incident is really heart wrenching though... May the boy rest in peace. 5-year-old boy falls to his death after he was locked inside 8th floor Woodlands office SINGAPORE - A five-year-old who was accidentally locked inside his parents' eighth floor Woodlands Close office was found dead at the foot of the building on Saturday (Jan 5). Soo Jia He is believed to have attempted to escape through a window after he had been left alone for around 10 minutes, said his parents. Soo's mother, who gave her name only as Ms Hu, told Shin Min: "Our home is only a five-minute drive from the office. I couldn't believe that when we rushed back to the office, we would see my son's body lying on the ground floor." Ms Hu added that she noticed that the office window was opened when she returned to the scene. She believed that her son could have fallen from the window in a panic, having witnessed their car driving away, a friend of the family told The Straits Times at the boy's wake on Sunday. The police said that they were alerted to a fall from height case at 11 Woodlands Close at about 9pm. The boy was found lying motionless at the foot of the building and was pronounced dead by paramedics at the scene. The police are investigating the unnatural death. Chinese-language newspaper Shin Min Daily News reported that the boy's parents had taken him and his brother to their office that day, and he had fallen asleep while they did some work. The couple run an education centre, though there were no lessons held on Saturday. When it was time to leave, the boy's father switched off the lights in the office and they drove home with his older brother. It was only when the couple arrived at the carpark of their home did they realise that they had left their son behind. When ST visited the building on Sunday afternoon, candles and joss sticks had been placed near the accident site - following a ritual the parents had commissioned for their son earlier that day. The boy was the youngest of the couple's four children and he was doted on dearly by everyone, said the boy's father, who wanted to be known only as Mr Soo. They have a daughter and two other sons, the oldest of whom is 18. The other two are in primary school and secondary school respectively. "It is a tragic accident that nobody could have foresaw", Mr Soo told ST at the boy's wake on Sunday night. He said both he and his wife had not slept since the accident the day before. He said: "We don't know for sure how it happened, but all that does not matter now, the end result is still the same. "Just like that, our son is gone. How are we going to be okay again?" And please, for the seek of the deceased and his parent, don't start questioning how could such things have happened, or condemning the parent, as they are already filled with guilt... Let just help to remind ourselves and people around us to be more careful and mindful when dealing with young children, and think twice about leaving them alone, even just for a short while...
  16. Happy Labour Day, Singapore! Some of us are thinking of how to utilise our pay that just came in. Then, there are jokers like this Toyota Wish driver who blows it all in an instant (and more). Speeding on PIE A dashcam video of the said driver has gone viral and here are some takeaways after watching the video. No one drives a Wish to speed. It's a family MPV for goodness sake. Don't do stupid things with other people's car, much less a rental Here's the 47-second video taken from SG Road Vigilante The Wish loses control at the 0.09 mark of the video. Online chatter Wow. To the Toyota Wish driver, good luck paying for all the damages for a rental car.
  17. Singapore has its very own Takumi! (The main character of Initial D, btw) A video of a car with unknown origins racing against a Suzuki Hayabusa has received over 40 shares under 5 hours! If you haven't already seen the video, here you go! The original video is from District Singapore's Facebook page. What's happening? In the video, it starts with the Hayabusa abruptly cutting into the cam car's lane and causing the car to swerve and spin out of control. But, the car driver somehow manages to retain back control and continue on his merry way. The kicker? Image: New Initial D Legend 1: Awakening (Sanzigen, Liden Films, Sentai Filmworks) That's not even the best part! If you were observant, you would have noticed a bunch of coins on the dashboard of the car. Watch the video again. The coins barely move even with all the spinning and swerving! Very much like the cup of water Takumi uses in Initial D no? What the people say Hayabusa good siol Confirm There’s that possibility Lol I’m just glad no one got hurt.
  18. For most owners who are into cars, they will tend to want to meet owners who own the same car/model as themselves. Hence from time to time, we will see many brand/model-based car clubs gather at places like the indoor stadium to chat and get to know more about their cars. However, we are kind of sure these Volkswagen drivers in the video below won't be friends anytime soon... Uploaded on ROADS.sg, we can see a Volkswagen Golf coming from the opposite direction before colliding straight on with the camera car (a Volkswagen Jetta). The accident happened on the morning of 22nd of April at the PIE interchange between Jurong Town Hall Road and Bukit Batok Road. There were no reports as of press time of what caused the Golf owner to drive into the opposite lane. We hope he did not faint or suffer a heart attack, causing him to lose control of his car. We did noticed the Scirocco (yes, another Volkswagen) moving away from danger as the Golf came closer. Good reflexes dude. Maybe if they stayed at home, such things won't have happened... videoplayback.mp4
  19. This accident happened at Changi Village hawker centre carpark. You can watch the full video of the accident below courtesy of Roads.sg (if you haven't already seen it) What’s happening Honda Stream exits the carpark and attempts to make a right turn on a two-way road. The driver seems oblivious to the fact that there's a stop sign and inches the car onto the main road. The Honda Steam driver then jams the brakes and in less than a second, what looks like a BMW 6 Series crashes into it. Hard. Different points of view If you replay the video, you'll notice that even after the crash, there were no cars that went past on the other side of the road. Meaning, the Honda Stream had more than enough time and space to avoid the accident. Jam break for what? The driver also ignored the stop sign and failed to do proper checks before moving off. On the other hand, based on the sheer force of impact, the BMW was going pretty fast too. What the people say This sounds legit. I think it's the Honda Stream driver's fault. The BMW driver sway balls. Also, there's a lesson here people - Stay the #$%& at home.
  20. Another Toyota Vios has gotten into an accident similar to the white 2nd generation example that went viral few weeks back on 23 March. Thanks to an unknown vehicle's in-car camera, we can see that this black first generation Vios lost it as it crossed the metal expansion strip that joins different sections of the Anak Bukit Flyover on the PIE. As seen on SG Road Vigilante's facebook page, the car seemed like it was speeding in the drizzle when the mishap happened. Check out the lorry driver's good reaction and evasive skills in avoiding the Vios! The Vios came to a stop on lane 1 with a Prius curiously avoiding it causally. For those who were wondering was that a Police bike on lane 3, it wasn't. Watch the full video and let us know what you think in the comment box below! 1.mp4
  21. As seen on ROAD.sg, a red Volkswagen Scirocco has rear ended a SEAT Leon Cupra at the junction of the KJE exit to Woodland Road. The accident happened a while ago on 3rd of April but only started getting viral recently as the Scirocco owner shared the video on a private whatsapp group chat (We have no idea why he/she would do this). Thankfully, this is no serious accident despite the camera car obviously speeding along the KJE exit before filtering into Woodlands road. Sharp viewers of the video would also notice from the car's exhaust note that the accelerator was being pressed to overtake the bus at the 11-second mark. But then again, it did look like the Scirocco could stop in time but chose to not come to a complete stop while checking for vehicles on Woodlands road... Check out the video below. Is this a case of bad luck and/or bad judgement from Volkswagen driver who actually could stop in time or a case of speeding and reckless driving from both drivers? Let us know what you think in the comments below. vid.mp4

  23. Taxi Driver Scratches Porsche & Admits Mistake, Porsche owner ends up only taking $1. A taxi got into a brush with a Porsche just yesterday, resulting in scratches on both cars. But read on, for this episode holds more than the usual car accident dispute, for this taxi driver was gracious enough to admit that he made a mistake! The taxi driver pleaded with Mr. Wu not to make a claim against him, explaining that "times [were] bad". Mr. Wu understood his concerns and knew that driving a taxi is now a high-risk job, in view of the Covid-19 outbreak. Porsche owner transferred money back to the taxi driver Not one to shirk his responsibilities, the taxi driver still transferred $200 to Mr Wu for the damages. Nonetheless, Mr. Wu told the taxi driver that he had found a cheaper place to do repairs and decided to give him some money back. Instead of transferring some of the money, Mr Wu gave almost all of it away, save for $1. Through their WhatsApp text messages, Mr Wu seemed to have done so as to show that the taxi driver had paid for the losses. After returning the bulk of the money, the conscientious Mr. Wu said that he would not make any further claims. Netizens on Facebook were quick to praise the actions of Mr. Wu! A whopping 271 comments were written on the post. And Mr. Wu, if you are reading this. Kudos to you! You have our full respect from the MCF team! Let's all show a little graciousness on the roads.
  24. This is to the driver of SLD3XX8D or anyone who knows him. I have video footage to help in the claims for the parties involved. The injured person has already contacted me so if you need access to the same video, do send me a private message with your HP and car plate number. Anyone reading this that knows the driver can also help to highlight this to him.
  25. A video submitted to Singapore Reckless Drivers and circulating on Facebook depicts an accident that took place along the PIE towards BKE after Steven Road exit around 9:24 am on 20 January 2020. In the video, you can clearly see that the BMW abruptly cut the Trans-Cab's lane. And then, this typical BMW driver decided to hit the brake to show his macho-ness. And due to some ego issues with the cab driver, they bang on each other. Here's the full video. Let this serve as a gentle reminder to all drivers out here! Please drive graciously this Chinese New Year! Don't risk you and your passenger over such trivial disputes. Anyway, there is a reason why BMW drivers are hated so much. Drive safe BMWs! 🙂
