I have a question: Why do so many of you guys like to go JB during ”long weekends” when all the extra day or two does is give you more time to sit in a jam? Not judging, just feel like I’d turn back after the first hour. This guy had to turn back no matter how long he waited though. What happened? Two Nissan Qashqais thought they could cheat the system and decided to use the bus/goods vehicle lane to get a shorter queue in SG during Labour Day. However, an officer caught on to this and made them leave the lane. This meant they would need to U-turn and go all the way back to the beginning of the queue, costing them who knows how much time. I can feel the drivers in the other lane going “serves you right”... Look at how the officer just shoos them away too. Online chatter Another rare moment of unity as people praise the authorities for doing their jobs and turning the offending Nissans away. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

TL:DR – A Singaporean-registered Altis and a Trans cab travel on the fast lane of the causeway, but only the Altis gets apprehended by the Malaysian police. There are no shortcuts in life. Likewise, in recent times, there have been no shortcuts on the causeway. If you’re sick and tired of waiting in the queue, you can always try your luck on the fast lane. You might get away with it, and you might not. Just like these two vehicles in the 43-second video below. What happened? A Trans Cab followed by a red Altis cuts into the car lane from the fast lane of the causeway. The Trans cab successfully merges into the queue, whereas the Altis did not have much luck as three officers eventually surrounded it. Unspoken rule I was very curious as to how the Taxi managed to evade capture. Some of my colleagues mentioned that public transport (buses and taxis) could travel on the fast lane. I even saw some comments that supported this claim. I tried to search online for material that could further support this hypothesis, but I found myself hitting dead ends. No official document from any authoritative body states that taxis are allowed to use the fast lane. So, I’m still stuck with my question of “HOW?” Maybe the comments section can enlighten me. Online Chatter It looks like netizens are as confused as I am. What is a lucky escape? Or a ‘close one eye’ situation for taxis? ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community. Join us today!
I notice to cut into the bus lane into Plaza Singapura where once I had turned from Buyong Road to Orchard Road especially passed by the Istana. Like not much distance to play in which that one is a Full Day Bus Lane.
