  1. Siala, SQ price all time high now this is the only way the food delivery rider can fly. What happened? A food delivery rider on Tanjong Rhu Road had a nasty accident while trying to make a right turn, as he was obscured by another car from the view of an approaching taxi, leading to a T-bone collision. The food delivery rider was going to enter what seems to be a condominium when a yellow taxi appears out of nowhere and slams into the bike. The rider was sent flying off the bike, its parts flying across the road while he landed headfirst on his helmet. That helmet probably saved his life, as we see him get up soon after the crash. Bro said nothing would stop him from delivering the food: I hope whoever he delivers to gives him a big tip. Online chatter People are saying it’s the rider’s fault due to not checking his own blind spot. In my opinion, that’s fair enough since they’re already cutting across many lanes and would be blocked by the grey car. The taxi shouldn’t have all the blame since they don’t seem to be speeding and clearly made an attempt to stop. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  2. TL;DR - Domino's Pizza delivery bike plays real-life game of dodge the NV200 at a discretionary right turn Pizza delivery gone wrong. Watch this 40 second clip of the collision. What Happened? A Nissan NV200 collided with a Domino's Pizza delivery bike at the discretionary right turn junction on Pioneer North Road in Singapore, under the PIE Flyover. The incident caused damage to both vehicles and raised concerns about road safety for delivery drivers. According to eyewitnesses, the Domino's Pizza delivery bike was traveling straight on Pioneer North Road when the Nissan NV200 made a right turn without signaling, causing the collision. The delivery driver was thrown from his bike and sustained minor injuries, while the NV200 suffered significant damage to its front end. Online Chat Amongst the hundreds of comments, the majority of them were pinpointing that this road is extremely dangerous. Hello @LTA? So please have more patience for people who are delivering your food, they’re delivering more than just your pizza - it comes with a side of risk. Nissan NV200 driver and the rider must have forgotten they're not playing Mario Kart… Takeaway The incident highlights the importance of road safety, especially at discretionary right turns where accidents are usually most seen at such junctions. Delivery riders, who are often required to navigate busy roads and make multiple stops in a short amount of time, make them the ones that are most at risk of such accidents. Above all, all drivers should practice cautiousness on the road and be extra vigilant - treat all junctions as accident black-spot zones and ride expecting the unexpected. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  3. TL;DR - Singapore Traffic Police crack down on Lalamove’s dangerous driving and wreaking havoc on the streets Toyota Hiace driver's reckless drive land him in a joyous ride to the police station Watch this 2 minute video of the driver getting nabbed (and his partner just randomly laying on the ground). What happened? A Toyota Hiace driver was recently arrested by the Traffic Police after crashing into a walkway along Jalan Sultan *school zone*. The incident caused damage to both the vehicle and the surrounding area. The driver was allegedly speeding when he lost control of the vehicle and crashed into the walkway. The impact was so severe that it caused the steel railing to fall off onto the ground. The Singapore Traffic Police were alerted to the incident and arrived on the scene shortly after. The driver was immediately arrested with handcuffs. In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the number of accidents caused by reckless driving, particularly among younger drivers. The authorities have responded by stepping up enforcement efforts and implementing tougher penalties for offenders. The consequences of reckless driving can be severe, both for the driver and for innocent bystanders. Not only can it result in injury or death, but it can also lead to legal and financial repercussions, such as fines, demerit points, and even imprisonment. Online Chat If I may ask, what is the guy lying down on the ground for...? Do you think the driver was under the influence of drugs/alcohol or do you think he was just simply a reckless driver, driving without due care? Comment down below! Takeaway The incident serves as a reminder of the dangers of reckless driving and the importance of obeying traffic laws. Singapore has some of the strictest traffic regulations in the world, and the authorities are very, very quick to take action against anyone who flouts the rules. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  4. TL;DR: A motorcyclist on BKE knocked another bike down and sent both parties off their bikes, skidding across the road. The rider at fault was surely having a good time going fast, feeling the cool night wind against them as they wove through traffic. However, they wove one too many times, and are now likely facing a lot of trouble. What happened? On 21st March 10.40 p.m, at Bukit Timah Expressway, two motorcyclists went into each other after one of them did an abrupt lane change at high speed without even a turn signal in order to exit the expressway. The rider who got hit was knocked down first before the rider at fault knocked into a car and off the bike, as well as their passenger. The condition of the bikers and the pillion rider is unknown. Online chatter. Naturally, a lot of people are commenting against the biker who attempted the lane change. Others hoped the pillion rider was ok. Do be careful when going on the road, especially with a passenger. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  5. TL;DR - P-plate Honda Jazz collided with a lorry and smashed into the road divider, resulting in a massive traffic jam as lanes were blocked. Watch this epic 33-second clip of the Jazz getting rekt by the lorry before going head in on the road divider. What happened? The ballsy P-plate Jazz driver allegedly sped and crashed into a lorry, cannon into the road divider before overturning. Turns out the car is also rented from Tribecar, as pointed out by netizens who spotted the decal. Mad accident that definitely could have been avoided if the driver was more cautious. Especially so when she is still under probation. The accident not only caused a crazy jam along the Pan-Island Expressway on a Saturday afternoon, five of them were also conveyed to the hospital. Aiyo, don’t need to action lah… Anyway the car no turbo! Also, side note, can we talk about how impressive the ComfortDelGro taxi was, to be able to shun the Jazz so swiftly while still staying in lane after. Fast reflexes man, thumbs up for you! Online Chatter Time to drink kopi with the police liao… She was arrested for careless driving, causing hurt to others. Oh well, no thanks to the driver for carrying on the stereotype that female drivers are bad drivers. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  6. TL;DR - Cam car rear ended Mini Cooper along Sembawang Road and seeks advice on what s/he should do next. What to do if you hit a car from behind in Singapore? Watch this 28-second clip of the cam car kissing the back of the Mini Cooper. What happened? The cam car was traveling a safe distance behind the Mini when the Mini decided to filter lane and brake simultaneously. This caused the cam car to bang into it as s/he did not manage to react and e-brake fast enough. 0% defensive driving skills… 100% zoning out… Just a random question I had in mind while watching the video: Is it true that all rear end collisions are caused by the vehicle behind? Cautionary Reminder It is important to keep a safe distance between your vehicle and other vehicles or non-motorists on the road. If you drive a car in Singapore, a following-distance of at least one car length for every 16 km/h of your speed is advised, so that you can come to a stop within a safe distance of the car in front of you. Online Chatter There seems to be a mini (geddit?) debate in the comments section. There are people who are siding the cam car, sharing their two cents on this situation. But of course, the majority has come to a consensus that it is the cam car’s fault. Takeaway To practice road safety in Singapore, you not only need to know the rules set out for you, but you need to be vigilant of all road users, regardless of the type of vehicle. Always keep a safe distance, so that you are not forced to brake abruptly. So who do you think is at fault in this rear-end collision? You be the judge in the comments box below. ========= 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!
  7. TL;DR - Lorry collided into an oncoming car who was making a discretionary right turn at the junction of Yio Chu Kang and Buangkok Green. Every road user should know that discretionary right turns are the cause of many road accidents in Singapore. Hence, why they are being slowly phased out. But, back to discretionary right turns. Just watch this 69-second shocker to see what I mean. So, what happened? The car was making a discretionary right turn and failed to notice the lorry that was accelerating past the amber light. This resulted in a collision where both parties met at the juncture. Such junctions are common sites for traffic accidents due to the blind spots that both drivers face. Hence, to curb the fatalities at discretionary turns, LTA has stepped in by integrating close to 700 red-amber-green (RAG) turn signals in January 2022. With the RAG scheme, motorists have to wait for the turning arrow to become green before turning right, which reduces the likelihood of collision with oncoming traffic. (Read here to find out more: Installation of Red-Amber-Green turn signals) Online Comments Seems like this junction has seen quite a few accidents. Nevertheless, we hope everyone involved is safe. Takeaway At the end of the day, no matter how many road safety precautions are set in place, it is still every road user’s responsibility to exercise discretion and be vigilant on the road. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  8. TL;DR - A collision occurred in Yishun between a Kia Forte and Honda Vezel at the yellow junction box. Every Singaporean would know what it means to be kan cheong. We are basically born to sweat ‘kiasu-ness’. For our foreign friends, kan cheong simply means impatient, edgy and hasty. So a kan cheong spider just refers to someone who possesses such traits. Watch this 51-second video of a Honda Vezel colliding into a Kia Forte as it drives out from a minor road straight into the second lane of the main road. What happened? The Honda Vezel was coming out from a HDB block in Yishun (oof, what’s new?) onto the main road when an incoming Kia Forte zoomed past, causing a collision between the two vehicles. Inevitably, both the Vezel and Forte’s front bumpers suffered some form of structural damage from the impact. But the question is: who is at fault? Should the Vezel drive into the first lane first before signaling to the second lane, or should the Forte have slowed down, knowing that there is a yellow junction box just ahead? Let's hear what the netizens think: Seems like more people are faulting the Vezel for being so kan cheong. Perhaps if he took it one lane at a time, this traffic jam wouldn’t have happened. But of course, the Forte should have also attempted to slow down when approaching the yellow junction box as nobody will ever know if there’s a vehicle waiting to ‘eat’ into his/her lane - Classic example right here, man learnt it the hard way.

  9. TL;DR - A horrifying accident involving 14 cars occurred along Bartley Viaduct just two days after Christmas. If you happened to drive along the Bartley Viaduct on 27th Dec, you would have witnessed a rare (not to mention expensive for those involved) occurrence. It's not every day you get to see 14 cars collided into one another in a straight line. There's even a bird's eye view of the incident! Watch this 56-second video to see how it looks. What happened? A chain reaction collision involving 14 cars occurred, leading to a long pile-up on the rightmost lane of Bartley Viaduct. We spotted a few familiar models in the carnage. Honda Fit Honda Vezel Toyota Prius Alpha Toyota Altis Toyota Vios All the cars seemed to have suffered some form of structural damage, especially the ones sandwiched in the middle. For all drivers who do their daily commute via the Bartley Viaduct, take note of this stretch of road. There are no speed cameras there and a perfect spot for cars to speed and/or tailgate. So, who pays for the damages incurred? The rule of thumb is that the first driver who caused the first collision that led to all subsequent crashes is the party at fault. While tailgating might not be an illegal offence in Singapore, insurers might not look lightly at your claims if you met an accident due to tailgating a vehicle ahead of you. Source: Budget Direct Singapore To identify the liable party in a chain reaction accident, it is important to reconstruct how the accident happened - Whoever’s actions caused the initial accident will be the responsible driver. There are even some cases where multiple drivers may be responsible. Which is why presenting quality footage to your insurers could potentially absolve you of any blame. Check out Sgcarmart's best car cameras for 2023! Online Hoo-ha: Good luck to the last of the 14 cars. For any inexperienced drivers, you should have learnt this during your Basic Theory. A motorist should stay at least 2 car lengths or 2 seconds behind any vehicle in front of them. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  10. Everybody hates car accidents---- especially car owners. Usually accidents on the road are caused by the errant drivers themselves.... But what if they were caused by the passenger you just accepted? Had you known of what would soon take place to your precious vehicle, would you still have taken on this passenger? That's right; probably not--- and we bet this PHV driver thinks so too! This dash cam footage from a third-party vehicle showed the moment the passenger door swung open and right into the face of an oncoming taxi. 293443465_548259580365081_7550106539844055768_n.mp4 Oh Boy. Ouch! That, my friends, was just the sound of hearts shattering and wallets shriveling up everywhere... This shows the exact moment of impact: We can only imagine the utter horror of the driver as he heard the sickening thud of his precious Honda door, slamming into the unforgiving exterior of the Comfort Delgro taxi... Criticism incoming: Netizens took to the comment section, making their thoughts known: There were some who provided some valuable insight and advice: And one even asked the pressing question we all want to know the answer to: Naturally, we assume the passenger would be the one paying as it was their fault after all... But again, that is not always the case. One netizen made a rather aptly-worded statement: Expensive, yes, expensive indeed! The total bill for the damages appear to be as stated below: Ack! Oh my heart! How it aches for the wallet involved... What is the moral of this story, if you will? We can agree that such an incident was very unfortunate and the most gut-wrenching part? It could have been easily avoided! A little care and caution goes a long way. I am sure the passenger, taxi driver and the PHV driver would agree. I hope the PHV driver gets his repairs done soon so that he can continue to drive and pick up his passengers on the daily. After all, that is his main source of income. Isn't it astounding how one action can cause so many ripples in the course of life? Just as well, I really do hope the passenger exercises more caution in the future! Not just for their wallet's sake, but for the safety of others too! ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news, and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  11. As many of you know, and as written in many of our past articles, errant cyclists who pay little heed to traffic rules are often complained about and mocked online due to them misbehaving on the roads but quickly zipping away after, with no consequences in sight. For this very unfortunate cyclist however, he got the results of flouting the rules---- instantly. Watch the video here to see what I mean: 305035803_1380684175756850_456724399881831999_n.mp4 Horrifying to watch We are well aware that jaywalking and running the red light have their risks, but many of us don't actually get to suffer the consequences. The cyclist may have tried to beat the red light, but ultimately failed, in the worst way possible. He starts out here. Flying down the road, he was soon collided into by the white vehicle, who definitely had ZERO idea that the cyclist was there, and probably had NO way to stop due to the speed. A second later the cyclist was rammed into by the second vehicle, which immediately halted at impact, and like the first car, could not possibly have stopped in time. To these vehicles, it would have been like the cyclist had appeared out of nowhere. The force of the impact caused the cyclist to fly forward and land in front of the second navy blue vehicle. Soon after, the drivers of both cars got out to check on the cyclist. It would be a shocking sight to anyone, including us viewers on the internet. Netizens seem to have a general consensus As you can imagine, the feedback was swift and merciless. This was one of the more civil comments we received that we agree with. We hope the drivers were not penalised as it really was not their fault. Some others crowed in glee, and spared no moment in jeering at the injured cyclist. The user commented that the authorities have yet to come down harder on cyclists that misuse the road. We do hope they take further action soon. Safety first No matter what, nothing is worth rushing on the road and throwing away your life for. Please obey traffic rules as they have been set in place, to avoid bringing harm onto others and especially, yourself. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news, and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  12. Sometimes we encounter mind-boggling sights on the road that leave us scratching our heads. What happened and how did it get there? Recently we spotted yet another such scene circulating on one of our favourite pages: The page had captioned it "You can't park there, Sir." You can watch the video here: 298360005_784581842681174_4396976411540370995_n.mp4 Huh? What the! How can? Immediately, we thought that the car had deliberately parked itself there in the middle of the road. Mystified, we did some sleuthing and re-watched the video, as well as digging through the comment section. Aha! Actually, contrary to the caption, the car was not been parked on the road as an act of obstinate rule-flouting, but had most possibly gotten into an unfortunate collision with a heavy vehicle ahead. We have edited the picture for the readers' better viewing clarity. The said heavy vehicle was spotted ahead, parked on the road shoulder: Furore descends. Many netizens protested at the arguably misleading caption of the page, pointing out the BMW's damages and the presence of the heavy vehicle at the road shoulder. Two commentators were engaged in discussion, regarding the actualities of the sight. Some had already assumed it as their immediate and final stance, that 'Yes, it was definitely an accident!' There was also an overwhelming barrage of netizens pointing out the seemingly obvious: Yet another wave, some expressing exasperation with the caption's assumption: Oh dear... Alright guys, I think we can also see for ourselves. Further explanations Other than the netizens who were not so pleased with the choice of words, there were those who jumped in to account for the context of the caption: As well as this "Oh, I see!" moment: Well, to be very fair, not everyone watches TikTok so not everyone will get the reference, so captions like these can lead to slight misunderstandings. Although, it is also not very ideal to use such a flippant caption when someone was just involved in an accident, with damages incurred and repair fees to pay for. Discretion is important! When reading and viewing content on the internet, its always good to do some further research and scrutiny so that we get the full picture. Just as well, it wouldn't hurt to brush up on our pop culture references. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  13. In the early hours yesterday morning, right when many of us would have been waking up and getting ready to go to work, those on the Kranji Expressway were thrown into a panic when this accident occurred: How did it happen? The scenario went like this: the motorcyclist was just going straight ahead. At the far left, some other cars were shifting lanes, moving to the right: Disaster strikes. Unfortunately, the Kia Niro (immediate closest) to the motorcyclist made a rash and foolish decision--- to swerve abruptly. This gave the motorcyclist about approximately a second to react, which wasn't enough, of course. Cue the imminent collision. It didn't stop there, as the force of the sideswipe was strong enough to propel the motorcyclist into the flank of another car ahead; its second collision. The tumble onto the hard tar road was inevitable: Oh my god! Our hearts dropped when seeing this. Thankfully, help arrives. Upon seeing the accident that had just occurred, Good Samaritans also on the road slowed down, or stopped their vehicles to offer assistance. The motorcyclists had slowed down to help a brother in need. The one closest to the fallen rider was also seen trying to lift the heavy motorcycle off of him. Divided opinions. There was an outpour of differing opinions online. Some commentators deduced that the cars were ultimately at fault. Some shared the same sentiment, but with a slightly different take: But it was agreed that the sudden lane change far left had caused the crashes. Yes, we think so too. There were also some less-than-helpful comments, bordering on nasty: Including this Come on man. Was not the biker's fault that he got into an accident. Not cool. Hasty driving has consequences. It is hard to pinpoint and assign fault exactly, but we can say that the abrupt lane change definitely was the direct cause of the motorcyclist collision happening. It is depressing and unfortunate to see the spate of motorcycle accidents as of late, especially the recent Simei lorry incident that sadly claimed the life of another motorcyclist (Rest in peace). We urge all our readers to always stay vigilant and safe on the roads, and we hope this motorcyclist gets better soon. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  14. TLDR; Nissan driver engages in reckless lane change that could have led to a severe collision. Watch the video for yourself below Black Nissan NV350 was caught on camera recklessly lane changing at Exit 15 to Yio Chu Kang Road on CTE towards SLE, cutting it extremely close to the camcar and potentially resulting in a collision. The camcar then had to swerve and brake in order to avoid colliding with the Nissan. It almost seems like the Nissan vehicle did not check his blindspot and the lane before recklessly changing into a lane that was already occupied. This seems like extremely irresponsible behavior that could have resulted in massive damage if a collision had occurred. According to Traffic Police, reckless or dangerous driving could potentially warrant you liable to an imprisonment period of up to 12 months as well as a fine of up to $5000 or both. This is so as to promote road safety as well as to discourage reckless driving on roads. Netizen Comments Netizens express their take at the situation above, criticizing both the Nissan driver as well as placing partial blame on the driver of the camcar. Personally, I think that reckless lane changing on roads should definitely be harshly punished before irreversible consequences occur. But with a different perspective, could this near collision have been avoided if either car had slowed down? Could this have been avoided if either car had given way and slowed down? Live and let live, a little patience goes a long way. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  15. Camera footage has caught the scene of an insane 9 vehicle collision along the AYE. Consisting of SBS buses, lorries and trucks, all heavy vehicles. Watch the video for yourself below 292803191_725505348710288_827111803812174092_n.mp4 Hmmm I wonder what caused the root of the accident, perhaps one of the heavy vehicles jammed their breaks and the rest did not have sufficient time to follow suit? But, that would mean that 9 vehicles were tailgating one another! An SCDF ambulance was also caught seen on the road, perhaps to try and rescue and potentially injured individuals. Netizen Comments Netizens chime in with their own take of this shocking situation, many of which accusing the vehicles of engaging in ‘tailgating’, which is the act of driving too closely behind the vehicle, resulting in this chain collision No matter, I do hope that everybody involved in the accident is safe and did not sustain any permanent injuries. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  16. TLDR; blur Chevrolet Cruze driver collides into Fiat Fiorino while recklessly swerving on the road. Watch the video for yourself below 293477688_565477225239846_1824659754857884933_n.mp4 The Chevrolet Cruze driver was caught on camera swerving into a Fiat Fiorino at 0.02 of the video. It looked like the driver was attempting to lane change but did not take note of the car beside him on the bend. Either that or the driver was simply unfocused or falling asleep at the wheel. Either way, it almost seemed like the driver was not focused on the road at all. Hopefully, the Fiat Fiorino was not damaged too badly. Netizen Comments Netizens speculate the cause of this reckless behaviour. Some suggest that the Chevrolet Cruze driver could have been using his mobile phone whilst driving and therefore was unable to focus on driving. Others claim that he might have been falling asleep on the road while the more understanding ones suggest that he could have been experiencing health issues that impacted his driving skills. Personally, I think that drivers who engage in reckless driving of this severity should get their license revoked for the sake of road safety. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  17. "It was my car, my friend drove. All I can say he panicked when the bike cut, and the lorry got close. RIP my car." The above was the background information provided along with the following user-submitted video: IMG_7234.MP4 What Happened? It was just another day travelling on the road until the black car in the video turned on its left signal indicator. Moments after signalling, the car veers to the right and sideswipes against the concrete barrier to the right. When panic set in, the driver immediately swerved to the left without checking for traffic. As a result, the black car unintentionally performs a pit manoeuvre on a passing Toyota Harrier. The SUV immediately lost control and collided head-first into the same concrete barrier that the black car sideswiped earlier. Meanwhile, the black car crashed head-first into the concrete barrier similar to the Harrier. According to the user that submitted the video, the blunder caused by his friend was due to vehicles that passed by him too closely. Hmmm...seems like a convenient excuse, doesn't it? And even if it is, isn't his friend's reaction a tad too slow? As the local saying goes, "if you can't swim, don't say your swimming trunks are too big". Likewise, if you can't drive, then don't - Drivers like that are better off taking public transport for the sake of other motorists. Netizens' Comments LOL the driver's brain need to buffer? Haiz....playing the blame game. Not sure who the car owner and driver trying to smoke🤨 ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news, and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  18. I don't even know which is worse - the fact that the cyclist caused the collision or that he didn't check on the rider after the crash. In a video posted on Facebook just yesterday (29 March), an accident along Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3 shocks several netizens. In the video, the cam car driver merges towards the middle lane in the darkness of the morning hours. Despite it being a little after 6 in the morning, the dark roads were illuminated by streetlights and the cam car's headlights. Just up ahead, a cyclist on the outermost lane notices the cam car's presence and starts switching lanes. With his bicycle dancing between lanes, it became clear that the cyclist had recklessly switched lanes without checking. At this moment, a motorcycle travelling in the same lane came into view. Due to the cyclist's sudden lane change, the rider did not have enough time to react accordingly, resulting in a rather nasty collision. The impact threw the cyclist off his bicycle while the heavy motorcycle flew across the road. With his path blocked, the cam car slows down and stops beside the cyclist, who immediately stands up with his helmet and bag still intact and attached to his body. After dusting himself off, he gingerly walks to his mauled ride. While attempting to pick it up, the cyclist blocks the path of an oncoming white van. On the other hand, after being thrown off his own vehicle, the rider sits up as he surveys his surroundings. While it is not clear if there were any serious injuries, the rider remains seated for the rest of the video. Netizens' reactions The video shocked many netizens, most of whom could not believe that the cyclist did not check on the potentially injured rider after causing the reckless accident. Yes, there is a difference between making a little mistake and causing an accident that might kill you and others. Note: This comment was in response to the post's description, which reads "Careless cyclist did not check clear, filtered towards first lane and got hit by motorcyclist. Accident happened at Ang Mo Kio Ave 3 (Beside Gain City) at 0640H on 29 Mar 2022. Speedy recovery to both parties.". Even if the cyclist was in a state of shock, it is just disappointing to see this behaviour from him. Where did all of his compassion and empathy go? Although I don't subscribe to the feud between drivers and cyclists, I have to admit that this incident reflects the inadequacy of cyclists to ride safely on the road. Having strict regulations is not the answer when cyclists defy the rules that lay the foundation for a safe and peaceful drive. ======== Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news, and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  19. Does this mean that this driver can’t drive through noisy areas? In a video published on 28th Feb, a Hyundai driver with his head in the clouds attempted to change lanes on the expressway. The cam driver, situated at Lane 1, was cruising along the road when she noticed the blue vehicle’s actions. Wanting to alert the Hyundai driver of her presence, she sounded her horn. This spooked the unalert driver, who sharply swerved to avoid a collision. His reaction reminds me of a chinchilla, a species that is easily spooked by anything and everything. However, as the driver had oversteered, this caused him to lose control of his car. The blue vehicle then hit the front of the cam car as it quickly slid towards the expressway barrier. This led to the Hyundai driver quickly shifting gears and reversing to avoid a second collision. The Hyundai’s sudden stunt scared other drivers on the rest of the lanes, all of whom narrowly avoided getting hit. As the blue Hyundai manages to stop his vehicle in the middle of the first and second lanes, the cam driver could be heard wailing loudly after being hit. Netizens’ reactions I agree that there should be a balance. While the Hyundai driver should have been more alert, the cam driver should have been prepared to anticipate a potential collision and acted accordingly. There is no way an alert driver would make a mistake like this (although that second swerve to avoid the barrier was pretty cool). It takes a certain skill level to pull something like that off. ======== Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news, and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  20. Jaywalking is never a good idea. And what's worse is when one attempts to jaywalk at a busy industrial area in the presence of heavy vehicles. Watch it here: What Happened? The accident occurred at Sungei Kadut Avenue, where a man attempted to jaywalk a busy industrial road. He stopped in the middle of the road as heavy vehicles drove past him. Just then, the cam car, together with a motorcycle that was riding ahead of him, approached the bend right before the jaywalker. Due to heavy vehicles around and the bend, the jaywalker was in a very obscure position. Despite applying his brakes, the motorcycle failed to stop in time. And as a result, he rammed right into the jaywalker, which sent him flying in mid-air. The jaywalker fell hard onto the ground and lay there motionless throughout the video. Passersby quickly rushed to the scene to check on both parties. Netizens' Comments Indeed. Only drivers/riders know this. Such knowledge and awareness would not necessarily occur to pedestrians. As usual. Drivers and riders always have to expect the unexpected, that's why driving/riding in Singapore is stressful. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news, and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  21. When an individual jaywalks, it is almost a no-brainer to check for oncoming traffic and blind spots before crossing the road. Unfortunately, this jaywalker had to learn to check for oncoming traffic and her blind spots the hard way: What Happened? This accident occurred on 20th February 2022, along Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3 after the SPC petrol station. The cam car was travelling along lane 3 at a relatively slow speed. Out of the blue, a woman dashes out from in-between two cars along lane 2. It was apparent that the woman did not bother checking her blind spot and simply assumed that there was no oncoming car. The cam car driver, who was unable to react in time, ended up colliding into the jaywalking woman with a substantial amount of force that sent her flying in mid-air for a good second or so. NGL, I am certain that F1 drivers cannot react in time if they were in the above situation. After landing on her back, the lady instantly got up to her feet. She then walked towards the roadside and sat on the grass while a passerby, the cam car driver and his passenger attended to her. This was a fortunate outcome for the jaywalking lady, considering she emerged from this accident without much hurt. Hopefully, this experience proves to be a valuable lesson to her. Netizens' Comments Hopefully some regulations can be made to protect motorists too. 💯 Hahaha what a troll. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news, and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  22. Now, I won't say that I am the biggest follower of traffic laws when I am cycling. Far from it, in fact. Yes, I know that as a cyclist, I also have to obey the traffic laws as laid out by the Traffic Police, but I have ran so many red lights while cycling that if it were reflected on my real driving licence, I would have exceeded the allotted 24 demerit points by.... Let's just say, by a lot. But I digress. Laws, rules and regulations are there for a reason. One of them being primarily to keep us safe. Or alive. Or both. Feel free to apply it as per necessary. But unfortunately for the star of today's post, this uncle either didn't get the memo or he just chose to tear it up completely, because he went against one of the most basic everyday rules. Based on the information in the video, the accident seems to have taken place in Sengkang. Now, I am not saying that I don't do this, and I'm pretty sure most, if not everyone reading this post has done what the uncle has done too, which is crossing the traffic junction when the red man is still on. Usually it is fine, you get to the other side without issue. But there are days when your luck just runs out and the results are... Less than pleasant. In all fairness, I can see why the uncle decided to go ahead and cross the road. Judging from the clip below, oncoming traffic seemed to be clear, with no vehicles in the immediate vicinity of the camera frame. However, my guess is that he may have missed the oncoming motorcycle due to its smaller size and just decided to cross the road. Perhaps the motorcyclist didn't expect someone to suddenly cross the road and may not have enough time to react once he/she realised what was going on, which ultimately resulted in said collision. However, it is also heartening to note that, fellow pedestrians at the junction immediately ran forward to help both injured parties after the momentary shock of having an accident happen right in front of their eyes. Judging from the style and colour of their outfits, two of the pedestrians could also be nurses/healthcare professionals, and if that should be the case, it is indeed fortunate that these nurses/healthcare professionals were at the right place at the right time to help people in need, despite the unfortunate circumstances of the accident. Perhaps, people, just a thought, listen to the rules, or just observe them. Or maybe just take a little while longer to set off from a traffic junction or when you're at a standstill. It could end up saving your life, or your wallet, or both. I mean, I should know. The last time I decided to rush for something, it ended up making a significant dent in my wallet 🙃. But that's another story for another day. Stay safe, people. Life isn't all about rushing from one place to another. Sometimes it could actually be beneficial to take your time, have a breather and smell the roses.
  23. We wonder if these group of cyclists are aware that the COVID-19 pandemic is still ongoing when they ride in such a large group.. Posted by the people from SG Road Vigilante on 7th of Aug 2020 is a video of a large group of cyclist riding together seriously before a crash causes a chain collision of bicycles. Some of us might find the accident funny while some would be shocked at how dangerous riding on the road could be. We just hope that everyone recovers well from their fall. Of course, such a post will put netizens into a commenting frenzy where everyone will be slamming the cyclists for road-hogging and riding in a group of more than five. Do you feel that these large gatherings should be stopped? Or do you feel that more and more cyclists are taking advantage of our roads? Let us know...
  24. 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
  25. its now 1st car claim 2nd, 2nd claim 3rd and so forth, please drive safe and keep safe distance. no more last pay all.
