  1. If anyone would like to have some furniture for their home, apparently just driving around could net you some free goods! Whether or not you’ll get them in good condition, however, is another issue. What happened? A driver on the Central Expressway (CTE) was on his merry way when a lorry started hurling furniture onto the road. The white dresser (looks like it?) slid off the top of the lorry straight onto the driver’s path, getting run over and destroyed. Bro almost got hit with a blue shell from Mario Kart. The driver who submitted the video was quoted saying “Lucky didn't hit my windscreen. TP pls watch out for these dangerous overloaded pickup.” Pretty reasonable reaction if you ask me. Online chatter Others agreed, thinking this situation would be dangerous especially for riders. Many blamed the lorry for being irresponsible, as it was overpacked and on the wrong lane (among other reasons). ========= 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. What happened? The driver who caused a fatal accident on the CTE (Central Expressway) in 2021 has been sentenced to two and a half years of jail as well as a 10 year driving ban. Ng Wen Xun, 35, was reported to have been speeding at up to 215km/h in a Mazda 3 when she lost control of her vehicle, hitting a guard railing before colliding with two motorcycles, another car, and a lorry. Ng’s car then hit the guard railing on the other side before stopping and catching fire. The lorry turned on it's right side, sending two of it's passengers onto the road. Almost all parties were sent to the hospital, with the exception being a 65 year old driver from the other car involved in the crash. One of the motorcyclists, 31, died in the hospital after succumbing to their injuries. One of the lorry passengers was found to have fractures to his spine, needing to be hospitalised for 9 days. Ng pleaded guilty to two charges of dangerous driving, one causing death and another of causing grievous hurt. However, her lawyer said her client exhibited a "very limited manner of dangerous driving". To add to this point, Ms Chee brought up how the situation occurred during the Covid-19 pandemic, and so there were fewer road users due to the hybrid work situation. She said her client has "genuine remorse" and is deeply apologetic and "very, very sorry" for the loss of life she has caused. Ng will serve her jail sentence beginning from June 12, or pay bail set at $15,000 on Monday. If convicted for dangerous driving causing death, one can be jailed between two and eight years and banned from driving for 10 years. The consequences of dangerous driving causing grievous hurt are a jail term between a year and five years, as well as a driving ban of eight years. Online chatter People questioned how Ng was going so fast. Others criticised the sentence, feeling that the judge was too lenient and that the punishment should have been harsher. ========= 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 – A Mitsubishi Lancer and a Volkswagen Scirocco were caught on camera speeding along the CTE and overtaking other vehicles using the road shoulder. Unfortunately for one of the two idiots, one of them hit a BMW X3 in the process and went full turtle, causing a 2-hour long jam in its wake. Lancerlution – It’s the term people use to refer to Mitsubishi Lancers trying their best to be EVOs (like this gum gong gia or a Lancer driver) Multiple angles of this incident found itself uploaded on SGRV’s FB page. Watch it all below: VIDEO 1 VIDEO 2 What happened? In the first video you can see the close up of the accident. The cam car is very lucky to have avoided the repercussions of the Lancer and Roc driver’s stupidity. In the second video you can see the build up leading up to the accident + the footage from the first video + some aftermath shots. Online Chatter Is that a fact? Good control but bad luck. I actually did not catch that! ========= 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!
  4. TL;DR – A Toyota Altis travelling on the fast lane of the CTE towards Woodlands suddenly found its bonnet flipped up. Never have I ever seen something like this happen on the roads before. Watch this 30-second video to see what bizarre incident occurred along the CTE recently. What happened A Toyota Altis travelling on lane 1 of the CTE/SLE (towards Woodlands) came to a halt as its bonnet got flipped up! Some possible theories? 1. As the caption of the post suggested. The Altis driver did not secure the bonnet properly before driving off 2. The Altis driver was travelling at an insane speed, and the wind caught blew the bonnet up 3. The catch of the bonnet is loose and needs a replacement Whatever it is, it’s still a rare sight. This driver needs to buy the CNY Toto draw. Sure huat.

  5. TL;DR = A Nissan NV200 speeds on the wet road, loses control, hits the side railings and overturns on the CTE The speed limit for goods vehicles on expressways is 70km/h. There’s no way that this van was adhering to said speed limit. Watch the minute-and-a-half-long video to see what I mean: What happened At about 0.02, you can see that the van swerves to avoid a car in front of it. Doing so sends the van out of control on the wet road (it’s raining, by the way). It then proceeds to hit the side railings before overturning dramatically on the CTE. A recipe for disaster I have no idea what the driver was thinking. It was raining, and the ground was wet. Visibility could not have been that great. The speed limit for goods vehicles is 70km/h. All the conditions listed above perfectly line up; just waiting for an accident to happen. And true enough, it did! Online Chatter This commenter has a point. Most comments feel that the van driver deserved this. There were some sparks when the van overturned though.

  6. Source: https://mothership.sg/2022/02/erp-rates-aye-cte-rise/ Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) rates will be raised at 10 gantries along two expressways, said Land Transport Authority (LTA) in a news release on Feb. 10. Due to easing of restrictions With the easing of workplace restrictions from Jan. 1 2022, where 50 per cent of those who can work from home are allowed to return to the office, traffic has built up at certain stretches on the Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE) and Central Expressway (CTE), said LTA. To manage congestion at these locations, ERP rates will rise by S$1 at the following gantries during the specified time periods: The adjustment will take effect from Feb. 14. Traffic speeds generally optimal Following this adjustment, ERP will be charged at 7 locations, compared to 29 locations pre-Covid, said LTA. LTA noted that traffic speeds have remained generally optimal on all arterial roads, including those within the Central Business District. This is based on LTA’s monitoring of traffic conditions in January 2022, following its latest review of Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) rates. ERP charges will thus remain at S$0 at these locations until the next review, and rates for other previously announced time-slots and gantries remain unchanged. LTA added that it will continue to monitor traffic speeds and congestion levels closely and assess if ERP rates need to be further adjusted as safe management measures continue to evolve.
  7. TL;DR – A driver of a cam car (make and model unknown) took their grievances online to shame two Honda Civic Type-R drivers for dangerous driving. Unfortunately, things did not work out as planned. Netizens ended up flaming the driver of the cam car instead. A cam car driver was overtaken by not one but TWO Honda Civic Type-Rs along the CTE and decided to call out the two Type-R drivers for reckless and dangerous driving. In an unexpected twist, netizens started flaming the cam car driver instead. I don’t know how you feel about it, but it’s a great form of amusement to wash away those Monday blues, that’s for sure. Watch the 2min+ video here: An interesting takeaway At the 0.06 mark of the video, you can see the Gold Type-R entering the frame with its right signal on, attempting to cut into the cam car’s lane. But what’s interesting is that you can see cam car speed up to block the Type-R from doing so. Yet, cam car driver calls out the Type-R driver for dangerous driving? Hmmm. The second Type-R Agreeably, the second Type-R (silver) did drive rather dangerously. It squeezed into a tight pocket of space in front of the cam car and weaved through other cars to exit the CTE. It probably deserved the high beam from the cam car in that instance. But, as always, let’s hear what other people have to say. Online Chatter Not even 1 comment supporting cam car! ========= 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. You would realise that drifting is never/hardly seen in Singapore due to the strict traffic laws that surround us. With an exception for motorsports events in a controlled environment, such as Gymkhana, which require drivers to skillfully manoeuvre around various obstacles while performing handbrake turns and drifts to clock the fastest time possible. And then this guy shows up: What Happened? This accident occurred at CTE Havelock Road exit. A car which seems to be a Honda Accord (Euro R maybe?) was seen exiting the CTE tunnel at high speed while performing a 'drift'. Initially, everything seemed fine until the front-wheel-drive (FWD) car lost traction at its wheels. As a result, the driver lost control of the car and slammed straight into the wall. Do you think the driver performed this 'drift' intentionally? Or was it a mere mistake on the driver's part by attacking the bend at high speed? P.S. For those that aren't aware, front-wheel-drive cars cannot perform conventional drifts like what we see in Fast & Furious. Netizens' Comments A very good explanation by our guru. I think so too. What a savage. ========= 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!
  9. This driver puts the Tesla Model 3 to shame after he misses his turn on the expressway. In the video, a fellow driver was travelling on the expressway when he noticed the white Tesla tailgating the car in front of it. For those who are unable to identify the Tesla, here it is! As the cam car driver remains on the left lane, the driver of the Tesla immediately brakes to avoid following the turn on the right lane. The driver then signals left and attempts to squeeze himself onto the left lane at the very last second but fails as his $120,000 vehicle almost hits the expressway barrier. The cam car driver presses on his horn to alert him of his presence. The embarrassed driver quickly drives off with no other way to get onto the right lane. Was the driver on autopilot mode? According to Tesla, its advanced safety and convenience features are designed to assist the driver with the most burdensome parts of driving (whatever that means). Over time, the brand will introduce new features and improve existing functionality into its Autopilot mode. This is to make the car safer and more capable. Currently, Tesla’s Autopilot allows drivers to steer, accelerate and brake automatically within its lane. Drivers can follow navigation suggestions to optimise their routes, which will lead the vehicle to automatically steer towards highway interchanges and exits based on its destination. However, Tesla has started that active driver supervision is still required and the Autopilot function does not make the car 100% autonomous. While it is hard to discern if the driver was really on Autopilot (or just plain distracted/indecisive), it is always essential to learn how to properly form up and know the routes that one intends to take. Even the smartest car in the world can’t save a ‘blur’ driver. Netizens’ reactions I honestly think that cutting through at the last second is not the smartest move 😅 It looks like this car is quite well known in that area 👀 👍👍 ========= Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook!

  10. Netizens have forwarded video footage of a serious accident near the CTE (towards City) Orchard Road Exit on Friday night (23 Jul 2021 at approximately 9.45pm): A car is seen fully engulfed in fire on CTE (towards City) near Orchard Rd Exit (location on Google Maps). A lorry and a motorcycle rider is also involved - with the lorry flipped on its sides near the burning flames and the motorcycle rider lying on the ground nearby. CTE on a standstill The whole expressway appears to have jammed up, with all lanes halted with vehicles stopped about 50m away from the site of the accident. There's also loud sirens ringing in the background as emergency personnel are trying to get through the jam to provide emergency assistance. This is a terrible accident and the motorists involved seem to be in a very bad condition. We hope and pray that they will make it through. We will share more details of the accident as we receive further news. Update: This story has also been reported by The Straits Times More photos of the site : (Part of photos are censored due to its horrid nature) Above photos from: Beh Chia Lor
  11. Here's a case of bad driving judgement gone wrong. Spotted on ROADS.sg facebook page - this red Bentley Continental blocked by a road hogger on CTE towards the City on 18/4/21. The impatient driver overtakes by filtering two lanes to the left but realises that the lane leads off the expressway. In a flash, the driver signals and swerves back to the right and smacks into the innocent bike on the centre lane. Thankfully the cam car managed to catch the Bentley driver in the act. Naturally, all the keyboard warriors waste no youth blaming the Bentley for the accident... https://www.facebook.com/roadssg/videos/142665334476260
  12. In this footage uploaded by SG Road Vigilante, a speeding Kia Cerato lost control and collided with a Blue Toyota Prius along CTE (Before Yio Chu Kang Exit). LATEST UPDATE : According to TNP, two men were arrested for suspected drink driving. Meanwhile, the driver of the car that flipped over looked to be in a bad condition. The SCDF said the driver & his passenger were taken to Sengkang General Hospital. Both were conscious. (Source) Here's the video: Here's the unfortunate Prius, driving patiently on a relatively empty CTE: After the Cerato collided, it sent both cars crashing into the railing, and the poor Prius was flipped over. We're not sure why the Cerato lost control, because it's a relatively straight road. We're also not sure how fast the Cerato was going, but it looked like it was speeding. Here's the reaction between the passenger and driver of the cam car: Cam Car Driver: Why are they speeding, for what??? Cam Car Passenger (Man) A: Maybe drunk? *after driving off* Cam Car Passenger (Lady): Thank you so much for being alert! Cam Car Driver: I wasn't being alert - we are lucky! We are f***ing lucky man!!! The video also sparked some reactions by fellow netizens: We hope the drivers and passengers in involved in the accident are okay, and will post an update here once we receive the latest news.
  13. 119810553_1098858070552615_6169005424589589203_n.mp4 "Hey man, where's the fire?", is what one should be asking the driver of the white Toyota. From the look of the video, the driver was going way too fast. If he wasn't rushing to a fire, maybe he was rushing off for something else... But let's not digress. As the old adage goes, "if you want to do something stupid, make sure others don't get hurt". Well, guess the driver of the Toyota didn't get the memo too. Speeding like a madman, fine. Crash into the central divider, it's your fault so live with it. But knocking into someone else after crashing your car? Not cool, man. Especially since the other car was minding their own business until they got a rude jolt because another car crashed into them. Stay safe, people. If you want to speed, buy a PlayStation or Xbox and get those racing simulator games like Gran Turismo or Forza. A lot cheaper and a whole lot safer.
  14. Now this is pretty high level stuff. We have yet to see anyone try escaping ERP charges like this Malaysian biker did. Posted on ROADS.sg and COMPLAINT SINGAPORE's Facebook page is a clip of a Malaysian biker trying to 'siam' the ERP gantry by riding off road. The video is pretty self explanatory as we can see the Gantry on the slip road from the PIE merging into the CTE towards Ang Mo Kio, with the Motorcyclist slowly bumping along on the grass. That is some commitment there for sure, we reckon.
  15. Should the LTA re-design this section of the CTE? Posted on Beh Chia Lor's Facebook page is this footage following a chain collision on the Central Tunnel Expressway, which supposedly happened just last evening (24 November 2020), right before the exit towards Upper Serangoon Road (headed towards the City). 121785318_1469103789947798_1184767733337672283_n.mp4 From what we can tell from the video, it looks like up to six vehicles where involved in the accident, including one tipper lorry! (watch from the start of the video) Netizens seem to be in agreement about the danger of the road layout along this section of the CTE... What do you guys think? Is a re-design in order? Should a highway even allow so many cars to be crisscrossing each other to begin with? Should the section of the PIE that follows after (prior to the exit onto the KPE) be looked into as well? Tell us below!
  16. Now this is not very smart. Thanks to social media apps like Instagram allowing news to spread like bush fire, you now best keep your 'bad' stuff to yourself... Check out this video of some mates videoing themselves going at high speed on our expressways in the wee morning of 10th May 2020. As seen on SG Road Vigilante, this insta story posted by n1zem, shows them going as fast as 180km/h in their Suzuki Swift Sport. Granted, the roads are pretty empty as we are in the midst of the Circuit Breaker period but there is still no reason for going this fast. For those who are wondering, 'Naked Crew" is a local car group and they can be found on Instagram. As usual, the comments by netizens are harsh and probably a bit hurtful. 1.mp4
  17. 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.
  18. Remember the black Volkswagen mk5 Golf GTI that was spotted racing on CTE at night with an Mitsubishi Evo X before causing a van to crash and flip? Here's a recent cum compilation video of the GTI causing havoc on our roads. As you guys can see these are some pretty reckless driving. A big no-no when dashcams are everywhere. And yes how could we forget the ever-increasing number of Facebook pages that shame bad drivers. Naturally, the comments section on SG Road Vigilante's page has its supporters slamming the driver. On a less serious note, the GTI is a pretty good point and shoot car with its fast-acting DSG box and turbo engine eh?
  19. 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.
  20. Could this be another case of street racing spotted on our roads during the Circuit Breaker period? Spotted on Reckless Driver SG's facebook page, a video has been posted showing the camera car driving slowly on the middle land before a small group of cars went past it at a higher speed. Yes. this is milder than the incident on the KPE that had the drivers in the video arrested, with only three cars shown in the short 40-plus-second clip. In fact, we reckon the 'tiong chias' were doing approximately 120-140km/h while the camera car was doing 70-80km/h. The cars, likely a Ford Focus, a Honda FD Civic and a Honda Integra were caught on camera at around 11:20pm on the 25th of May heading towards AYE Jurong inside the CTE tunnel. 1.mp4 On another note, we were surprised to find most of the comments attacking the video owner, saying that the camera car was road-hogging. Do you agree? Let us know!
  21. With roads pretty much empty under this current semi-lockdown period, some youths have been spotted making use of the empty roads to ride their PMDs. As seen on a facebook page SG Reckless PMD Riders, three youths can be seen in the short Instagram video riding next to each other at high speed in the CTE Tunnel. Admittedly, the clip isn't of the best quality but it does seem like they were doing in excess of 40km/h, well over the speed limits of e-scooter. Of course, it doesn't matter as no one is allowed to be using their PMDs on the public road. In fact, they aren't even supposed to be out of their homes at all and going for joyrides! Check out some of the comments on the page. Not suprisingly, they were not very pleasant. SG-Reckless-PMD-Riders-PMD-high-speed-at-CTE-Facebook.mp4
  22. https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/speeding-along-cte-two-men-jailed-traffic-police-11554678 Their own dashcam caught them lol
  23. State the road name, direction and location.
  24. Wah first day of sch, at 7am CTE towards city already jam like siao. Is it the norm haha, cos my first time driving out at this timing. Accident on CTE towards SLE between Moulmein and Jln Bahagia exit. Drive safe everyone. Get your kids to school safely.
  25. Early morning (6.20am) whilst driving to work, had been hearing over radio (90.5) repeatly that closure of CTE exits on 5th May 2014 (today) at Merchant Road exit and Yio Chu Kang exit to SLE from 7.00am to 11.59pm. (Northward) Never hear any reason for the closure of the exits. Tried login to LTA web and Onemotoring but no details of the closure. KNN, at least give us the reason for the closure over the radio lar ... If one will to miss the announcement, and upon arriving at YCK exit, has to make a big 'U' turn at Upp Thomson Road junction and back to SLE again ... Any brothers know the reason for closure ?
