  1. This Vin Diesel lookalike takes ‘no chill’ to the next level when he gets honked for driving recklessly. In this video, a driver was on his way to work when he meets a short-tempered and illogical Vin Diesel (SG version). The video starts with the cam car driver making a left turn on Circuit Road. He notices a white Honda CRV cutting across the double white lines as he does so. The white vehicle aims for the right lane (aka the one the cam car driver was already on) as it slides across the road like a seal into the ocean. Not wanting to be hit by the CRV, the cam car driver presses his horn to alert the other driver of his presence. This triggers the driver, who has not made it entirely into the lane yet but was ready to throw hands in the middle of the road. After adjusting his car’s position, the bald bold driver gets out of his car and starts one of the shortest confrontations I have ever seen. He glares threateningly at the cam car before waving his hands madly and scolding the driver for honking at him. After 5 seconds, he gets off his high horse and angrily returns to his vehicle. Honestly, I don’t know how some drivers can have such high egos when they are so blatantly in the wrong. Guessing game: How many demerit points does this driver deserve? Firstly, crossing double white lines is not allowed in Singapore. Drivers found guilty will receive a $150 fine and 4 demerit points. Secondly, drivers who fail to give way to oncoming traffic at a controlled or uncontrolled junction will receive a fine of up to $200 and 4 demerit points. Thirdly, drivers who fail to indicate or provide warning signals while driving will receive a fine of up to $150. Fourthly, while the confrontation only lasted about 5 seconds, it is still considered an act of road rage. According to the law, road rage happens when the driver, or passengers, alight from their vehicles to harm each other in a moment of anger. Offenders will receive a fine of up to $5,000 or an imprisonment term of up to 12 months. Lastly, drivers found guilty of careless driving will receive a fine of up to $250 and 6 demerit points. If we add all of these charges together, our burly Vin Diesel might be looking at a fine of up to $900 and 14 demerit points (not inclusive of road rage).

  2. Here is how to share your Christmas joy with everyone
  3. Bollards are an essential safety feature put in place by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) to reduce the impact and severity of an accident between an errant motorist and pedestrians. Over the years, many motorists have attempted to test the bollard's rigidity and robustness: However, one thing in common is that all these cars failed against the bollard. Watch this video to see the aftermath of a Ferrari 458 going head-to-head against a bollard: What Happened? A blue Ferrari 458 Speciale crashed head-first into a bollard at the junction of Marina Boulevard. Below is a Google Maps view of the accident location: Needless to say, the Ferrari's bonnet was a complete wreck. Due to its rear-engine location, the Ferrari was still driveable. Despite the significant damages, the Ferrari driver was persistent in shifting his car off the pedestrian pavement that he mounted for some weird reason. Moments later, the police arrived on the scene. On Closer Look The location was oddly familiar after looking at the accident site using Google Maps. I then realised it turned out to be the same location as the "Mitsubishi Lancer Vs Bollard" accident mentioned above! Isn't it weirdly coincidental? Netizens' Comments If it was a front-engine, can send the car to the scrapyard straightaway. Thanks LTA! NGL, I struggled to read this comment. ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA
  4. Teenager admits using his mother's shared car account to book vehicle, got into accident. https://www.channelnewsasia.com/singapore/teenager-admits-using-mothers-shared-tribecar-account-book-vehicle-accident-2413886 SINGAPORE: A 17-year-old boy who helped his mother book shared cars rented a vehicle for himself using her account, but got into an accident with a parked car. The teenager, now 18, pleaded guilty on Tuesday (Jan 4) to three traffic-related charges and a fourth charge of unauthorised computer access. A fifth charge will be considered in sentencing. He cannot be named as he was under 18 at the time of the offences and is protected under the Children and Young Persons Act. The court heard that the teen frequently helped his mother to book cars from car-sharing mobile application Tribecar. He did not have his own Tribecar account as he was underage, but he knew his mother's login details. In March last year, he changed the login ID to his own email, so that his mother would be unaware if he made any bookings. At about 10.30pm on Apr 6 last year, he decided to book a car for a joy ride the next day. He booked a Honda Stream and retrieved the vehicle from a multi-storey car park in Jurong West the next morning. After driving for about one-and-a-half hours, he entered a petrol station in Woodlands and tried to park the vehicle. However, he failed to keep a proper lookout ahead and collided with a parked vehicle in front of him. He apologised to the driver of the vehicle and exchanged numbers with him, but could not be contacted afterwards. When the teen's mother found out that her son had driven the car, she informed Tribecar and paid S$500 as compensation for the damage caused. The prosecutor said the teenager has no previous convictions and did not object to the calling for a probation suitability report. In mitigation, the teen said he regretted all the decisions he made throughout "these matters". "I hope you realise it was a very foolish thing to do," the judge told him, adding that it was a good thing no one was injured. "I hope it's something you remember - never to break the law again," he said. The judge called for a report assessing the teen's suitability for probation and adjourned sentencing to February.

  7. It is only the start of the new year, but I think we got a winner for the weirdest sighting of 2022 already. Watch the video here: What Happened? This sighting occurred along the Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE), in the wee hours of the night. The witness who recorded the video said he was driving along the AYE when he almost rear-ended the abandoned, stationary van. He proceeded to stop his vehicle behind the stationary van to inspect and offer help (supposedly) to the van driver. Upon inspection, the van was found to have sustained significant damages to the driver's door and the windshield, which deployed its airbags. What was most puzzling was that the van driver was nowhere to be found, and the van's engine was still running! Furthermore, there was no sign of collision between the van and another vehicle. How strange... What It Looks Like NGL, this looks as though an alien spaceship came down to abduct the van driver. Heck. It even looks as though the van driver faded into dust from Thanos' snap. What do you think happened? Netizens' Comments That's a dedicated employee right there🤣 😳😳😳 When you take 'hit and run' too literally. ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook!

  8. Just as the joyous festive season kicked in, an unsuspecting accident completely ruined the atmosphere. Watch the spine-chilling accident here: What Happened? The accident occured along the stretch of Tampines Ave 10, close to midnight on 23rd December. A red Mercedes A180 drove from Tampines Ave 1 before negotiating a left turn onto Tampines Ave 10. From the video, it seems like the red Mercedes was travelling at a fast speed when he approached the left turn. Oddly, the Mercedes did not seem to have any intention to negotiate the bend. What puzzled me further was that it seemed to be driving straight into the metal barrier and the vehicles in the opposite direction. As a result, the Mercedes ended up T-boning a white SUV at the red light. There was plenty more collateral after the first point of impact with the white SUV, including a motorcyclist who happened to be lane splitting. The Aftermath In total, four cars, a taxi and one motorcycle were involved in the accident. Unfortunately, one driver succumbed to his injuries on the way to the hospital, while four other motorists were injured and taken to the hospital. Subsequently, the driver of the red Mercedes was arrested for suspected drink driving. Speeding Apparently, the driver of the red Mercedes was racing another car before the accident occurred. They were caught on dashcam footage as they sped down Tampines Ave 1. Netizens' Comments Dude, the Mercedes driver was arrested for suspected drink driving. Regardless, drivers like him should be off our roads. Yes, totally agreed. NGL, my heart dropped a little while watching the video. My thoughts and prayers go out to those involved in the accident 🙏 ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA
  9. https://tnp.straitstimes.com/news/singapore/1-dead-4-injured-after-accident-junction-tampines-ave-1-and-tampines-ave-10 Footage circulating online showed that the accident involved four cars, a taxi and a motorcycle, and that it involved what appears to be a red Mercedes car crashing through a railing at a traffic light. The police said that it was alerted to the incident at about 11.10pm. The 59-year-old male driver was unconscious and conveyed to the hospital, where he later died from his injuries. Four other men, aged between 22 and 38, were conscious when sent to Changi General Hospital. The Singapore Civil Defence Force, whichwas alerted to the incident at 11.10pm, said that a person was found trapped in the driver's seat of a car and rescued using hydraulic rescue equipment. A 33-year-old male driver has been arrested for suspected drink-driving, said the police. Police investigations are ongoing.
  10. Yishun Dam is a well-known spot for two things - a scenic place to 'lepak' and an accident hotspot. Watch a near-miss freak accident caught on dashcam here: What Happened? It was any other usual day for the cam car, cruising along lane 1 of Yishun Dam towards Yishun Ave 1. A black lorry from the opposite direction mounted the kerb out of the blue. As a result, it almost caused a head-on collision with the Lexus in front of the cam car. At this juncture, both the quick-thinking Lexus driver and cam car performed a sudden evasive manoeuvre to avoid getting swiped by the lorry. However, in the process, the Lexus driver seems to have contacted the motorcycle on its left. From the footage, it is not clear if the lorry managed to dismount the kerb on its own afterwards. Netizens' Comments Undeniably true. NGL the Lexus driver does have a splendid reaction time 👏 MMMM...interesting theory. I must admit that this has never crossed my mind. What do y'all think?🤔 ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA
  11. Car-sharing is an undeniably innovative and affordable way for the public to access a car. In the wrong hands, car-sharing can be a double-edged sword, capable of posing a hazard to other road users. *Pretty sure we are all familiar with drivers of a small, white car on lane 1 of the expressway, driving with its high beam on and tailgating others👀* Watch this video to find out how car-sharing can be a deadly hazard to other road users when driven by irresponsible pricks: What Happened? This incident occurred along Bartley Viaduct, in the direction of Bartley Road East. The traffic on the stretch of road was absolutely clear, apart from a GetGo Car (Mazda 3) and motorcycle that passed the cam car. During which, the GetGo driver was driving in between two lanes. (Definitely a sign of a chiu cheng driver) For some reason, the GetGo driver failed to spot the motorcyclist that was LITERALLY right in front of him. As a result, the GetGo driver ended up swerving to his right to avoid rear-ending the motorcyclist. The high speed, coupled with the sudden swerve, caused the Mazda 3 to lose traction and skid. As much as I don't wish to make any assumptions, I can assure you the GetGo driver probably has minimal driving experience (Either that or he is drunk/on drugs). *Don't drop the "Even though I have not been driving ever since I got my license at 18, I have x years of driving experience" B.S on me* While attempting to regain control over the vehicle, the GetGo driver ended up sideswiping the motorcycle...REAL BAD. The collision caused the motorcyclist to fall and repeatedly roll on the road. It seems like the motorcyclist may have sustained significant injuries. The GetGo driver scoots off immediately without hesitating after colliding with the motorcyclist. Not Caught On Camera According to the cam car, he chased the GetGo car after witnessing the hit and run. Apparently, during his escape, the GetGo car also collided with two other vehicles in the vicinity of Maris Stella High School. A pity all these were not caught on a dashcam. It would certainly serve as solid evidence to put this chiu cheng driver away for good. Here's to wishing the motorcyclist a speedy recovery. And I hope the dashcam video finds you well to assist you in your claims accordingly. Netizens' Comments 🤨🤨🤨 Heng ah. Kudos to the cam car driver, you the real MVP. ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA
  12. If you are a regular social media user, you would have seen your fair share of weird or unusual vehicle incidents in Singapore. Well, you can add the following incident to that list. Watch it here: What Happened? The incident occurred in Hong Lim multi-storey carpark. After waiting for a Honda Vezel to reverse park into a handicapped lot, the cam car proceeded to move off. Just then, a Toyota Vios accelerates out of his parking lot at full speed, without any warning. The sudden acceleration caused the Toyota driver to lose control, colliding with multiple cars and motorcycles parked opposite it. Subsequently, the momentum and impact from the initial collision caused the Toyota Vios to crash into another row of parked cars. After the subsequent crash, the Toyota Vios came to a complete halt. Following this, the driver can be seen opening his door before the cam car drives past him. This has got to be what was on the driver's mind. The Aftermath Thankfully, it seems there was no one in the vehicles involved in the collision then, apart from the Toyota driver. Although it is unknown if the Toyota driver was hurt, no one else seems to be hurt from this chaotic incident. Here's to sending the Toyota driver some well-wishes. It is going to be rather traumatic for him. Netizens' Comments I am not surprised at all. It is Honda HRV or Vezel, not Honda CRV or Bezel 🤦‍♂️ 👀 ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA
  13. As drivers, I am sure we have met our fair share of annoying drivers on the road who switches between lanes either without due care or simply because of their indecisiveness. Here's a perfect example of an annoying driver that falls in both of these categories: Where And Who Were Involved? The accident happened along Ang Mo Kio Ave 10, just across Townsville Primary School. In total, two cars (a BMW X5 and a Hyundai Avante) and one motorcycle were involved in the accident. What Happened? Initially, the Hyundai Avante was travelling on the left-turn only lane. It then changed to the next lane, to be positioned right in front of the cam car. Wanting to filter left towards Bishan Road, the Hyundai driver decided to change back to the left-turn only lane after several cars passed by it. For unknown reasons, the Hyundai driver took his own sweet time to complete his lane change, and this was where tragedy struck. The BMW X5 who was travelling at a relatively fast speed, could not stop in time, causing it to smash into the side of the Hyundai Avante. Following this, a motorcycle travelling directly behind the BMW X5 also could not react in time, causing it to smash headfirst into the rear of the BMW SUV, literally. Looking at the image above, can I say that all the lane switching involved was entirely uncalled for? Regardless of which lane the Hyundai was in, he could eventually turn left if he had the patience. Kudos To The Biker Bro Despite receiving the brunt of the impact from rear-ending the BMW, the motorcyclist made an effort to check on the other parties involved in the chain collision. Good on him for that! Who's At Fault? This accident will undoubtedly pose a challenging case for the insurance companies involved to determine the party/parties at fault. Reading the comments, the public had mixed opinions on the party at fault, which included: (a) The Hyundai was at fault; (b) The BMW was at fault; (c) Both the Hyundai and BMW were at fault; and (d) All parties involved were at fault. What do you think? All matters aside, regardless of who is at fault, I wish all the parties involved a speedy recovery! Netizens' Comments This stereotyping is somehow relatable.

  14. Transformers used to be every kid's dream toy back in the good old days – what's not to love when it's based an innovative combination between cars and robots? The driver of a prime mover seemed to be stuck in his dream as he re-enacted a scene you would probably see in a Transformers movie. What Happened? The cam car was driving along Kian Teck Avenue when he witnessed this horrifying accident between a prime mover and a lorry. Just as the cam car and lorry was passing by a junction, a prime mover emerged from Kian Teck Drive and smashed headfirst into the side of the lorry. The impact was so great that it caused the lorry to topple over to its side. Luckily, there seemed to be no passengers in the back of the lorry. Below is a clearer view of the accident location: It was clear as day that the prime mover driver disregarded the stop-line and assumed he had the right of way since he was travelling straight. Playing the Devil's Advocate? Nope, don't start on the "it is partly LTA's fault because they did not maintain the road signage which caused the stop-line to be faded". Regardless of how faded it is, the stop-line remains visible to any road user, and this suffices. The fault lies entirely on the prime mover driver. The Outcome of the Accident At this point, it remains unknown if anyone was seriously injured in this accident. Nonetheless, we wish anyone involved in this accident the best of health and a speedy recovery. Netizens' Comments Indeed. It has an uncanny resemblance to Transformers... There is a significant difference between being unable to stop in time and did not bother to stop. ======== Receive a $10 PayNow transfer for every submission we publish on Facebook!

  15. ... If I told you that the occupant walk away from this pile of mass unharmed?! This beyond miracles!!! Ermm anyone wants to guess what model was this? Woman Somehow Walks Away From Folded Car In Shocking Semi-Truck Crash Incredible. No, scratch that. This is beyond incredible. We aren't talking about the severity of the crash, though it's not every day you see a car literally folded in half and crushed by a semi-truck. There was a woman in that car, and she's not dead. In fact, she crawled from the car with hardly any injuries at all. So yeah, what's beyond incredible? Whatever it is, that's what we're dealing with here. This crash happened the morning of November 16, on Interstate 5 in Mount Vernon, north of Seattle in Washington State. According to The Seattle Times, traffic was slowing down on the Skagit River Bridge when this Red Nissan was hit from behind by a semi-truck. There was also a semi in front of the car, and the collision caused the rear of the Nissan to fold over. The semi from behind came to a rest on top of the car. The report says a 46-year-old woman was inside, and looking at the pictures in the Twitter post above would have anyone thinking the worst. Washington State Trooper Rocky Oliphant took the photos and relayed information on Twitter, at first calling it a serious injury accident. But then the semi was lifted from the car, and Oliphant says the woman crawled out under her own power. She reportedly complained of minor pain in her head and ribs, and went to the hospital for further observation. We say it again ... beyond incredible. In his Twitter posts, Oliphant says he's never seen anything like this in 14 years on the job. In The Seattle Times report, he points out the manner in which the car folded could explain how the driver escaped serious injury. The back served as a buffer, protecting the passenger compartment while also giving the semi something of a ramp to slide on. While the crash certainly wasn't lucky, he goes on to call the driver the "luckiest unlucky person." Straight up, this crash is legit spooky. Obviously we're thrilled that the driver escaped with just minor injuries, but we keep coming back to one very basic, haunting question: How? Some would say this steps into the spiritual or supernatural realm, and you know what? Looking closely at these images, we wouldn't disagree. Stay safe out there everyone.

  17. Hi, Car was involved in a chain accident at pie towards tuas before clementi road exit yesterday around 2pm and the car behind me hit and ran away. Appealing for witness that saw the chain accident. Please help on this matter if there are any witness. Thank you.
  18. 6 men, allegedly insurance claims specialists, appear out of nowhere along PIE after accident They allegedly show up quite quickly after an accident along the roads in Singapore. https://mothership.sg/2021/09/claims-specialists-singapore/ The video was uploaded to the SG Road Vigilante platform on Sep. 22, 2021. A video showing the aftermath of a minor vehicular accident along the Pan Island Expressway on June 6, 2021 has gotten motorists in Singapore talking. Within a day, it has been viewed more than 317,000 times. 6 men appear out of nowhere The description of the video on YouTube gave a vague account of what was shown in the short clip, in which numerous men were seen congregating by the road shoulder of PIE towards Tuas near the Kallang Bahru exit. The description also said the men appeared out of nowhere to the scene and were allegedly soliciting the motorists involved to file insurance claims. Based on what could be seen, there were six men involved -- four men exited the yellow Honda and two from the black Audi. However, the contents of the video soon became more apparent as more commenters on Facebook chimed in with their own experiences having also apparently encountered something similar previously.

  20. One would never expect an accident to occur just at the foot of their home. Watch this video to see how the cam car reacts against a hit-and-run driver: What happened? Although the accident location is unknown, the surroundings suggest that the location is situated among several condominiums. As the cam car was making a right turn into his condominium, a Porsche Macan abruptly cuts the cam car on his right. As a result, the Porsche ended up hitting the side of the cam car. Fortunately, the impact of the accident was pretty minor since both cars were travelling along a street. Fight Or Flight? Instead of going down to exchange personal information, the driver behind the Porsche Macan decides to escape from the cam car. The Porsche Macan pushes out all 300-ish ponies from his turbocharged engine, gapping the distance between him and the cam car in an instance. Shortly after, the cam car commences an intense pursuit after the Porsche and even "bashes" through the security barrier of the Porsche driver's condominium. Stuck With Nowhere To Escape Honestly, this is the stupidest thing anyone could do -- Performing a hit-and-run and trying to hide inside your own condominium, despite the victim right behind your ass. The video abruptly ends with the cam car speeding through the condominium's carpark, leaving viewers on a cliffhanger. Needless to say, the Porsche will eventually be caught as there is only 1 entry and exit within the condominium. All it takes is for the cam car to go around the carpark and find a dark coloured, damaged Porsche with the matching number plate mentioned in the video. Netizens' Comments Damn right it is. At least this involves an exciting chase. I am also looking for an "official ending". I will update this post if there is any. Lame. See you kena hit-and-run already, will keep quiet or horn all the way lor. --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

  21. The age-old, pressing issue of Motorists vs Cyclists never seem to cease. The influx of interest in cycling resulted in many people adopting cycling as a mode of transport. Coupled with the lack of awareness and education of road safety, and knowledge, potential issues among cyclists themselves will inevitably arise. Take a look at this short clip: What Happened? This incident happened at Punggol Central. Although it was a red light signal for pedestrians, two cyclists flout traffic rules and blatantly cycle across a pedestrian crossing. Despite knowing that the camcar was about to perform a discretionary turn, these errant cyclists still decided to perform this absurd and dangerous act. The two cyclists ended up almost colliding with each other, causing the elderly cyclist to fall. They obviously have no regard for safety rules, lest their safety. From their actions, I am certain that it is not their first time flouting red light signals or traffic rules in general as cyclists. Is it really worth endangering your life over that mere seconds spent waiting for the light to turn green? Red Light Go, Green Light Stop Familiar with the latest Netflix craze – Squid Game? If you are, then you must be familiar with the first game: Red Light, Green Light. If you aren't, read more about the game below: Well, I am 101% certain these two cyclists won't make it past Game #1 of the Squid Games. Newly Recommended Road Cycling Rules Just last week, a government panel – The Active Mobility Advisory Panel (AMAP), proposed a set of recommendations to review regulations to enhance road safety. Considering this incident, would it be wise for cyclists to practice a safe passing distance as well? Would third-party insurance be effective at all? I will let you be the judge of the newly proposed recommendations' effectiveness. Do check out the article below to read more on AMAP's proposed recommendations: Netizens' Comments You sohai, it's sohai. It's hard to advocate a safe road culture for all when such errant riders have minimal regard for their personal safety.

  22. If you frequent the Pan Island Expressway (PIE) for your daily commute, you may have experienced a major traffic jam on Monday morning (27 Sep). Here's the reason behind the major jam during the morning peak hour: What Happened? The accident took place along the PIE, involving multiple vehicles. A blue container truck swerved across multiple lanes to avoid a lorry on Lane 3 of the PIE. This resulted in the container truck colliding into multiple vehicles, causing a significant amount of collateral damage. The accident caused a severe standstill jam that choked up the PIE, leaving only 1 out of 3 lanes passable. The Outcome The video showed 6 vehicles involved in the accident – The tipper truck, 3 lorries, 1 Toyota Corolla and 1 Hyundai Advante. The impact from the collision was so great that fumes began to emit from the engine bay of the Hyundai Avante. One lorry had its side completely torn off as a result of the collision. As a result of this massive accident, debris was strewn across the PIE. PSA: If you happen to drive past this stretch of the PIE, do check your tyres for any puncture. UPDATE: A total of 13 people were injured from the accident. While 10 of them were conveyed to the hospital, 3 of them were assessed by SCDF for minor injuries and refused to be conveyed to the hospital. An Underlying Matter Despite all the attention on the accident itself, there is an underlying issue – The safe transportation of foreign workers. Online sources mentioned multiple workers were present in the lorries when the accident occurred. Accidents like the above are why stricter regulations that enforce a safer mode of transporting foreign workers should be mandated.

  23. The above reminded me of an incident that I previously experienced: This one time, a chain collision took place on lane 1 of the expressway, but I managed to check my side mirrors and swerve out of the lane in time to avoid being part of the chain collision. I came close (there was a fair bit of distance) to the car behind me on lane 2 when I decided to swerve out of my lane. And this resulted in endless honking and scolding from the car behind me as I had cut him abruptly. What I did was not entirely right or wrong. In fact, I feel it was a dilemma-kind of situation. If you were in my shoes, what would you have done differently?
  24. The purpose of Discretionary turns is to ease traffic flow at certain junctions. However, over the years, discretionary turns have evolved to be one of the most hazardous spots. Watch this video to see why discretionary turns have developed such a notorious reputation: What happened? This accident occurred at the junction of Punggol Road and Sengkang East Way. Despite travelling at a slow speed, a Toyota Noah performs a discretionary right turn WITHOUT checking for oncoming traffic. Yes, you read it correctly — In the video, the Toyota driver did not bother stopping at the pocket meant for drivers to check for oncoming traffic. As a result, an oncoming motorcyclist was sent flying mid-air due to a collision with the Toyota Noah. Where The Fault Lies After watching the video, you may have two thoughts on your mind — Are discretionary turns or human error the cause of discretionary turn-related accidents? Well, I guess the latter is the reason for discretionary turn-related accidents due to LTA's removal of discretionary right turns at most traffic light junctions. The topic of discretionary turns attracted a mixed response from the public: Here's to wishing the motorcyclist a speedy recovery from this accident!
