  1. https://www.todayonline.com/singapore/stories-behind-23-year-old-inspired-godmother-bus-driver-1988991 Nothing against bus driver but what would u think if that is your son.
  2. In one week there was several tragic deaths on the road 1) NUS student take Taxi at Commonwealth - Killed taking Taxi http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/teen-who-died-in-clementi-crash-was-an-only-child-said-to-be-very-close-to-her-parents 2) Lady at Bukit Timah - Killed in a Mercedes http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/23-year-old-woman-killed-2-others-injured-in-collision-between-car-and-smrt-bus-at-bukit 3) Pedestrians at YCK - Killed walking http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/lorry-driver-arrested-after-3-pedestrians-killed-in-accident-near-yio-chu-kang-mrt-station Take Taxi die, Drive Car Die, Walk also Die... It has been disturbing me all weekend, what do you think is the root cause Is it a road design issue in general, or are drivers here in Singapore become more callous and careless? Or is everyone so tired, stressed/over worked that rushing around with no concentration while driving?
  3. Driver of Maserati found guilty of causing grievous hurt to policeman, faces 59 other charges Source: https://www.msn.com/en-sg/news/singapore/driver-of-maserati-found-guilty-of-causing-grievous-hurt-to-policeman-faces-59-other-charges/ar-BBXMY4f?li=BBr8Cnr Singapore—Thirty-five-year-old Lee Cheng Yan has been found guilty of voluntarily causing grievous hurt when he dragged police officer Staff Sergeant Khairulanwar Abd Kahar in his Maserati at a speed between 79 km/h to 84 km/h in an incident on November 17, 2017 at Bedok Reservoir Road. He was convicted by District Judge Ng Peng Hong on Wednesday, December 4, who also found him guilty of nine additional charges, which includes obstruction of justice and failing to stop after the accident. This is aside from 59 other charges that Mr Lee is facing, that have to do with illegal money lending and online gambling, which will be ruled on later. Additionally, on the day when he dragged the police officer, he was actually forbidden from driving due to previous traffic violations, and lacked the required third-party risk insurance for his Maserati when the incident occurred. On that day, Officer Khairulanwar apprehended Mr Lee as he drove down Bedok Reservoir Road shortly before 9:30 in the evening, as he had seen that Mr Lee had no seat belt on. The officer then approached the driver’s side of Mr Lee’s car. When he stood beside Mr Lee’s open window, the driver of the Maserati “fled the scene by suddenly reversing the Maserati, before accelerating quickly forward while the victim was standing next to the driver-seat door,” according to Deputy Public Prosecutor Timotheus Koh. Unfortunately, Officer Khairulanwar’s uniform got stuck in the car window, and he was dragged for over 100 meters, finally falling on the road. Mr Lee then drove away. The policeman sustained pain in his right knee, neck and lower back, and had to take 20 days’ medical leave. Mr Lee left the Maserati near Aljunied Road, at Willow Avenue, and later sought refuge with a friend, Jeff Chan, who tried to convince him to turn himself in. He borrowed a shirt from Mr Chan and threw his own shirt away. He was eventually arrested at Mr Chan’s house at 2 o’clock in the morning on November 18 and charged in court on that same day. Mr Lee claimed his innocence, saying he had lent his car to an acquaintance known as “Kelvin,” whom his defence team had never been able to produce at his trials. Nor was Mr Lee himself able to give any pertinent information about “Kelvin“ such as his last name or address. Concerning Kelvin, Senthilkumaran Sabapathy, the Deputy Public Prosecutor on the case told Mr Lee, “You are obviously lying.” The other DPP, Timotheus Koh, said, “The defence is conspicuously silent on the fact that the accused has, to date, failed to produce this Kelvin, even though Kelvin is key to the defence’s case. He said Kelvin was the driver, Kelvin caused grievous hurt, Kelvin drove dangerously. Kelvin is a cornerstone to the defence’s case. Yet all they can muster … is that the accused was not asked by the prosecution and the police for more details about Kelvin.” As he has been deemed a serious flight risk, Mr Lee’s bail was increased from S$10,000 to S$70,000. He will be back in court on January 14, 2020. If he is found guilty, he may receive a maximum jail term of 15 years, as well as caning and/or a fine. -/TISG
  4. In all honesty, I can see where she’s coming from. Just look at our articles. What happened? Singaporean influencer and Tiktoker Nicole Chang Min put out a scorching hot take about our local drivers on a Tiktok that has since garnered over 94,000 views. The Tiktok opens with Nicole exclaiming that Singaporean drivers “sux” , saying that when she signals she is going to change lane, they often speed up to prevent her overtaking. (sorry for the play button guys, icon won’t disappear no matter what) She proceeds to ask why drivers must always “zham” on the gas and overtake her, as if letting her overtake will result in their deaths. Online chatter Public opinion is split depending on where you came across this video. Tiktok is surprisingly sympathetic, with others coming with their agreements. However, Facebook users suspect it being Nicole’s own fault for not being a good enough driver (basically skill issue but even less polite), or the other sort of stereotype about a specific sort of driver… Writer’s thoughts - Probably not her fault, our other articles should serve as adequate evidence. ========= 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. [Not in SG] Saw this on Straits Times. Bus driver was having a medical issue. Told the kids over the intercom that she will be pulling over but unfortunately passed out before she could do so. 13 year old kid senses something amiss and reacted swiftly to save all lives on the bus. News media from other countries type long paragraphs to sing praises of this kid. Singaporeans? "Zai." One word to describe the kiddo. 😂 Kid must have watched Keanu Reeves in the movie Speed while growing up. Super impressive.
  6. TL;DR - Famous Tiktoker gets advice from Lalamove driver on how to own a GTR - and this is exactly why you should never look down on any blue collar workers, especially Lalamove drivers. Sign me up for Lalamove now! Watch this Tiktok to hear some words of wisdom from the man himself. What happened? There’s a pretty famous Tiktoker (@Koocester) who goes around Singapore interviewing drivers who drive exotic/luxurious cars and ask these drivers for their professions. And throw in some words of financial advice too. In the Tiktok, he managed to get some insights into the life of this Nissan GTR driver. The driver seemed to be rather friendly and shared some of his thoughts with Koocester. He mentioned things like saving often, donating and giving to those in need, and basically being wise when spending your money. Which is quite a no-brainer but most people need to be constantly reminded of such and coming from someone who owns an arguably, $600k GTR, better heed his advice! As dope as it looks, the video received mixed reactions from netizens - racial stereotypes (c’mon we’re living in 2023!) and possibly from the saltiness of them not being able to afford one. Online Chatter Instead of celebrating his W, netizens were making a fool out of the man - L behavior… Like, seriously… There’s more… & more… This wasn’t even the last of it. Many of the comments were also targeting his English, as he said “save often(ly)”. Hmm, what's bad English if he can afford such a sick car though… I don’t care that others say, when I grow up I wanna be like this guy! ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  7. https://www.asiaone.com/singapore/too-nosy-driver-permanently-banned-grab-after-asking-passenger-inappropriate-questions?utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Facebook&fbclid=IwAR26J2SjH7Tx9qgdJKmGYtnpZlTrkAHDo5lk6svF3aEcI4MTQ747jcitSok#Echobox=1659335627 Too nosy? Driver permanently banned from Grab after asking passenger inappropriate questions AUGUST 01, 2022 PUBLISHED AT 2:05 PM By SYARIFAH NADHIRAH Screengrab/TikTok/User14153979978577 We've all encountered chatty private-hire drivers at least once. Some of us are okay with it, others not. One TikTok user recently urged everyone to "speak up and tell them (the driver) if the chat is getting uncomfortable" after their father was permanently banned from Grab due to a conversation he had with a passenger. The driver's child shared about the incident on an anonymous TikTok account last Wednesday (July 27). The video has since racked up 350,100 views and 25,000 likes. Grab Driver Banned Tik Tot Download-1.m4v According to the video, the driver received a call from Grab staff who asked if he recalled a passenger being uncomfortable during a recent ride with him, to which he responded with a no as he "didn't recall any unhappiness expressed by any passenger". Shortly after this, the man was allegedly locked out of his Grab account and received an email from the ride-hailing company. In the email, Grab stated that he was permanently banned for displaying inappropriate behaviours during a ride such as commenting on the passenger's physical appearance and asking overly personal questions that were unrelated to the booking. PHOTO: Screengrab/TikTok/User14153979978577 "He was banned indefinitely from Grab with just an email," the TikTok user wrote, adding that their father could not find voice evidence to prove that he was unaware of the passenger's unhappiness as the dashcam footage had already been refreshed by then. Grab's email also mentioned that the driver could submit an appeal if he believed he was "wrongly banned". He did so immediately but his appeal was allegedly rejected without a reason. PHOTO: Screengrab/TikTok/User14153979978577 "Ultimately, I am just making a living as a driver with no malicious intention, I do not wish to offend any riders. I have always treasured being a partner of Grab and I apologise for any issue caused for the team or this rider. This will not occur again," said the driver in the appeal. The driver's child shared that their father had been working with Grab for nearly a decade and had an average rating of 4.9 over 5 stars. The video ended with the child urging passengers to speak up when they feel that a conversation with a driver is getting uncomfortable: "They would stop. My dad would. Just a simple complaint has caused my dad a lot of sadness, disappointment and cost him his livelihood." Netizens divided on driver's plight Netizens in the comments section expressed their sympathy towards the driver. Some urged Grab to provide an explanation for the ban and do a thorough investigation, while others offered to help him find a new job. On the other hand, there were netizens who disagreed with what the Grab driver's child said in the TikTok video. "Clearly you don't understand how scary it can be for a woman to be in a Grab," one wrote. Inappropriate behaviour not tolerated: Grab In response to AsiaOne's queries, a Grab spokesperson shared: "Grab does not tolerate any kind of inappropriate behaviour that goes against our code of conduct. Driver-partners and passengers found to display errant behaviour after investigation will be suspended or banned from the platform. "Ensuring that all who use our platform feel safe and comfortable is very important to us, and we urge everyone to treat one another with respect." AsiaOne understands that the driver was banned following a thorough investigation. In November 2020, a GrabHitch driver was suspended after sending anti-LGBTQ texts to a passenger who had a profile photo banner in support of the Ready 4 Repeal movement. However, the driver insisted that his messages were not abusive. After he met with Grab personnel, the company agreed to reactivate his account. But it decided not to proceed with the reactivation after the driver made an untrue statement claiming Grab "agreed that political slogans should not appear on any photos".
  8. Have you guys ever found yourself in funny situations as a driver? Maybe you went up the curb by accident or perhaps you were going too fast and almost ran over a few birds. But I bet you can't beat this! A curious sight unfolded in the wee hours of the morning today in an unidentified location (anyone want to guess?) with police even coming down to check up on the scene--- a BlueSG car parked on a grassy slope! The scene in question. You can see our hardworking SPF at one corner: And we get a zoom-in as the driver goes past our main star, the one and only, BlueSG car! Seems like this driver was not the only one who noticed the odd scene. There was another screengrab from a separate bystander, seemingly a resident at one of the neighbouring public housing blocks, which provided more of an aerial view here: Wow. Just wow Why liddat harh? What was it doing there? Was the driver inebriated? Was his GPS not working? So many questions unanswered. So as always, I took to scouring the reliable comments section to look for (hilarious) explanations: ROFLMAO. Not BlueSG but BlurSG! Haha! Indeed, it would take a lot of carelessness to end up in such a place... Oh my my. That's a saucy, scandalous suggestion right there! Well, as once famously said: We think this is a much nicer way to say "bak chiu tak stamp". LOL. It seems like a few people agree with them too. Last, but not least, this netizen gave a quite simple answer that made us roar with laughter: Haha! That must be it, surely, confirm plus chop. *wipes away tears* After all, one of BlueSG's marketable points is the easy accessibility to many charging points around the island, no? A little humor never hurts in unusual situations like these! What happens next? We are assuming the police have taken over and will be doing their due investigations. After all, as funny as it seems, it is an offence to park on a grass verge in Singapore! Image taken from LTA website Such an act could lead to the offender being slapped with fines from $70 up to $110 for light vehicles, and for heavy vehicles, the penalties starting from $100 up to $150. Psst, by the way, where do you all think this place is? ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news, and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  9. I think everyone agrees that we hate people who treat our public roads like their grandfather's road... Not saying we justify the road rage, or any middle fingers, or license-plate ripping or throwing... 🤪 (if you know, you know!), but we do understand the anger some feel when having to share the driving space with others who are sibei inconsiderate! Recently, in Eunos Crescent, a Honda Vezel decided to play punk in the neighbourhood--- not only did they beat a red light, they performed an illegal U-turn as well! Furthermore, this was with other cars on the road, including one it was coming head-to-head with, and a pedestrian in the near vicinity. For those who do not mind the seething rage you will feel, you are welcome to watch the video footage here below: 293450419_181350937619198_4096779857651268986_n.mp4 Shake my head man. According to the Singapore Traffic Police, the penalty for failing to conform to traffic signals is a fine of $400 for light vehicles, $500 for heavy vehicles, along with 12 demerit points for the errant driver. The penalty for making an illegal U-turn is a fine of $70. Wow, imagine all the gas you could buy with that money! The dashcam of a fellow driver captured everything. At first, everything seems normal, just a quiet night in the streets of the East... Hey, wait a minute! Did that Vezel just beat the red light? Whoa! That's a violation! Oh man... There's another car there! Siau or what?? Is he doing what we think he's doing? Oh boy, here comes the U-turn... Dangerous? Inconsiderate? Both! Man, I cannot believe what I just saw. Needless to say, this driver has gathered the ire of many a netizen in the comment section of the Facebook page the incriminating video was posted on: This commentator has a sense of humour! Haha. Whereas some made some observations and some detective work which they subsequently shared with everyone... No comment here. We do not discriminate against PHVs at mycarforum OK. Hm? 9 out of 10 of what? Could this netizen be possibly referring to Honda Vezel drivers..? Well, again, this is a statement we can neither confirm nor deny... Lastly, there was an interesting comment that we sighted: Huh, is that so! Well, well, well. I think we can all agree though: what the Vezel driver did was definitely not right, nor happily received! The verdict is... Yes, it may have been in the wee hours of morning. Not a lot of cars then, nor many pedestrians. But the Vezel still shouldn't have done that. Traffic rules exist and are put into place for a reason. It was super dangerous because of the presence of other road users, such as the oncoming car and the lone pedestrian, yet more vulnerable due to them not being in any vehicle of sorts. Wouldn't you feel guilty if your rashness were to cause injuries to others or even... the loss of a life? That's not your call to make, man. Only God's. Don't play play hor, please. While we can only pray that everyone around us sticks to the rules, we should also abide by them ourselves... and always stay vigilant too. Take care on the roads, readers! (Psst, if anyone wants to share about Honda Vezel drivers or if you've had a similar experience... can just comment down here or share!) ========= 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. If you are unaware, PAB stands for power-assisted bicycles, the 'legal version' of e-bikes that can be used on our roads. Unfortunately, this one reckless PAB rider simply could not stand getting honked while on the road and ended up road raging.\ Watch the video here: What Happened? A PAB biker was recklessly riding along Serangoon Ave 3 and was honked at by a car behind him. Upon getting honked at, the PAB biker instantaneously became noticeably upset and turned around to confront the driver. As he approached the driver, the PAB biker slapped the car's bonnet once and hit the driver's side window. He then aired his grievances before swinging open the car door forcefully. The forceful swing of the door caused it to close by itself after being fully extended. What Happened Off-Camera According to the user who submitted the video, the driver, an elderly uncle, was extremely shaken by the encounter and was 'teary-eyed'. Apparently, the PAB rider dropped his number plate at the incident site It was subsequently retrieved by the cam car driver and the uncle. And let's be real here: The uncle did not deserve that kind of treatment. His honk was a subtle honk to alert the PAB rider rather than a honk to provoke him. SMH, another unjustified case of bullying. Netizens' Comments Just like cyclists. The uncle was indeed trying to alert the PAB rider of his surroundings. What offences do y'all think the PAB rider committed? Drop them down in the comment section! ========= 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!
  11. In relation to my most recent blog post, I would like to know what the community thinks. Given that the cyclist is at fault here for not heeding the traffic rules, how would that translate when it comes to insurance claims? Is the driver able to claim anything at all? 😥 As I have mentioned, the laws seem to favour pedestrians more when it comes to situations like this. It doesn't seem very fair for drivers. Has anyone ever encountered something like this before?
  12. Today, we have a Toyota Hiace driver that might have allowed water to seep inside his brain while driving in the rain. He drives against traffic flow along Changi Road towards the city and cuts across three lanes to turn into Siglap Ave. The best part is, he's driving calmly as if he's doing nothing wrong when in actual fact, he's scaring everybody As a driver myself, Singapore roads are extremely easy to navigate. I admit that I've driven against traffic before albeit in a carpark but never on a main road. Anyways, I digress. Here's the video. Where is this place? Gungho right? This is where the incident happend, courtesy of Google Maps. Maybe he made a wrong turn after pumping petrol at ESSO? For the folks here, when driving, please watch out for "unusual vehicle" and don't assume that everyone follows road regulations. Do not hesitate to alert them of their wrongdoings to prevent somebody from getting hurt.
  13. Singapore is a fine city. There are many things that you will be fined if you are doing so. Never wear a mask in public - Fine $300. Not Wearing Clothes At Home If You Can Be Seen - Fine Of Up To $2,000 And/Or Jail Anyhow littering - Fine Of Up To $2,000 So today we have a P-plate driver who supposes to pay extra attention and be more gracious on the road but she didn't do after she has parked the car. She was seen walking out of her car throwing some trash and she went back to pick it up (for a moment, I thought her guilt have made her realised her mistake) and throw it back again inside the drain. Here's the recap. I am not a saint either. But during this period where the world is combating Covid-19, for your own sanitary waste like tissue paper and wet wipes, it is best to throw it inside a rubbish bin. And just in case this lady does read my blog, this is how Singapore rubbish bin looks like. It is green in color, it is in a cylindrical shape and you will notice there is a lot of rubbish inside. 😁 And btw folks, from 1st of June, we have to return our tray when we are eating at the hawker centre too. When our P2HA is over and we can dine-in, let's return our tray when we are eating at hawker centre! Source: SG Road Vigilante Backup
  14. Obviously the camera is meant for left-hand drive market, which is why the light and button is on the left of the camera. But are there are ways/mods/accessories so the driver knows if its green light is on? Asking because just discovered the green light has been blinking for so many days wihout me knowing. Luckily nothing 'exciting' happened before I realised this. For those not familiar, this is what the camera looks like:
  15. According to Stomp, this guy booked a GrabHitch ride in Choa Chu Kang on Friday afternoon. He scheduled the ride for 3.15pm, but the driver sent a message to ask if it will be ok for him to arrive at 3.25pm. The passenger then asked if the driver could reach by 3.15pm instead but received a snide reply: "I drive car not aeroplane" The driver eventually cancelled the ride. It seems like the passenger is a little demanding. There are many variables that affect travel time on the road - there could have been traffic, the driver might also have been some distance away and hence required more time to reach. In such a situation, the best solution is to just wait - if you cancel this ride and book another, chances are he won't reach by 3.15 also mah. Understandably, GrabHitch is a carpooling service, where drivers who are going the same way, offers to pick up passengers for a small sum. As such, it is kind of an unwritten rule that one shouldn't expect to receive five-star chauffeur service. I think the most important takeaway from this incident is that communication is key. The driver could have replied nicely, and the passenger should have been more understanding and the whole thing wouldn't have been an issue. And hor, I also don't have an aeroplane, but I still can reach work (quite) on time leh.
  16. Alrighty readers, let's waste no time to discuss today's hot topic - A BlueSG driver who allowed his son to get behind the wheels of the car! No video though, so here are the images. I am not an expert in parenting, but I am quite sure this boy is definitely not 18-years old and not of legal age to drive. He even has the same bowl cut hairstyle I had when I was a kid (not like anyone's asking). What is the legal age for driving? The minimum age to drive a motor vehicle with a Qualified Driving Licence (QDL) in Singapore is 18 years old. How many people can sit on the driver seat? Pretty sure it's ONE even though there's no answer for this question on Quora. Some of the other questions people ask are bloody amusing. Parents take note Always put your kids at the passenger seat and fasten their seatbelts before you start driving. If you can do this when you are taking a plane, I am sure you can do this when you are driving. Passengers who are not will be fined S$120 per passenger. The Bolloré Bluecar (the BlueSG car) does not come with cruise control. If you are lazy to drive, then take a Grab with your kids, let someone (who's not a 12-year-old kid) drive for you. I think if his wife sees this, someone's sleeping on the couch tonight. Uncle Koba out!
  17. Dear all May I know it is worth to drive Grab or normal cab? Heard Gov let PHV drivers claimed Petrol Parking and Maintenance etc Any advice from current driver ? Thank you very much
  18. A round of applause for this true motorcyclist vigilante. We need more of such road users in Singapore to bring bad drivers to justice. In a recent SGRV Facebook video post, a cyclist can be seen cycling along Bukit Timah Road sometime at night when out of nowhere, a white Toyota Hiace van knocks the cyclist down. Seeing this, the motorcyclist kicked his bike into action and chased the van down to block its path. After which, he even called in the Police. According to the screenshot of the Police report in the video, the van driver claimed that he noticed that he had hit something but 'did not saw anything'. Seeing how the van driver failed his breathalyser test that was conducted after the incident, its no wonder he didn't see anything. He was arrested on the spot by the Police. Here's the full video. Netizens singing praises for the motorcyclist (well most of them).
  19. No ERP Rates Until End-Jul 2020, Drivers Heave Sighs Of Relief source: https://mustsharenews.com/erp-rates-jul/ No ERP Rates Until End-Jul 2020 After LTA Review Good news for drivers — Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) gantries will remain shut until 26 Jul 2020 following a review, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said on Monday (22 Jun). Due to optimal traffic speeds on expressways as well as arterial roads, drivers won’t have to pay any ERP tax until the next rate review. The next review ends on the 4th week of Jul. ERP rates review started after ‘Circuit Breaker’ LTA started a review of ERP rates on 2 Jun, after Phase 1 began following the ‘Circuit Breaker’. They wanted to know if they had to adjust rates based on traffic during this transition period. For now, their answer is a resounding ‘no’, and drivers won’t have to divert their routes based on ERP taxes at least until the 4th week of Jul, when the next review concludes. Any new rates will take effect on 27 Jul. Enjoy zero rates while they last While drivers are doubtlessly hoping for the retirement of the ERP as a whole, the rates are subjected to monthly reviews at the moment. If the economy gets back to where it once was, traffic congestion may follow. Currently, cars are reaching optimal speeds, meaning there is little to no congestion on the roads. This is presumably due to the fact that most workers are still asked to telecommute during Phases 1 and 2. However, this may change in future as we continue to reopen the economy and workers go back to workplaces. For now, what we can do is enjoy the zero rates and pray that the next review yields similar results.
  20. Do me a favour, please watch the video first before reading past this first sentence, this way, you will understand the context of what is going on. Turn your sound on too. 41860487_462079431454648_3710982132141643689_n.mp4 Done? Great. So, the actions of the driver in the camera car. Necessary, or just plain idiotic and rude? Yes, the uncle at the traffic light did seem a little blur and started crossing the road, rather slowly too, after the red man came on. Yes, this traffic light along Victoria Street is notorious for heavy vehicular and pedestrian traffic, as seen in the video where people are not done crossing the road even as the red man comes on. Perhaps let's cut the uncle some slack? Maybe he wasn't paying attention or just having an off day. Or on the other hand, he is really lacking spatial awareness and nearly got himself killed. Understandably, the driver in the camera car could've not honked so long and scared the uncle half out of his slippers. A double tap of his horn would've been suffice, plus the other cars around the camera car don't seemed to have moved off either. And also being so eager to leave the lights. Where are you rushing off to, bro? But then again, this writer daresays that both parties are in the wrong in this incident. The uncle for not being observant of the traffic light and taking his own sweet time to cross, and the driver for being extremely heavy handed with his horn. Although the driver should be more conscious on his acceleration. Yes, this writer knows that most of us can't tolerate stupid people, but do remember that if you as a driver hits a pedestrian, it's not going to just be demerit points, man. Like most things in life, a little patience doesn't kill, people. You would think people would've remembered that by now but no.......

  22. A CEMENT-MIXER driver has been charged over the fatal crash in Tampines which claimed the lives of two brothers and cast the spotlight on heavy vehicles and road safety. Munir Mohd Naim, 57, is claiming trial to causing the deaths of Nigel Yap Yew Cheong, 13, and Donavan Yap Teck Siong, seven, by a negligent act at the traffic light cross-junction of Tampines Avenue 9 and Tampines Street 45 on Jan 28. Nigel was cycling and taking his brother - who was riding pillion - home after school when they were struck by the cement mixer at about 5.40pm. Munir Mohd allegedly failed to keep a proper lookout while making a left turn from Tampines Avenue 9 into Street 45 when the traffic light was showing "green" in his favour.

  23. Now this is a new level of road bullying. Check out this new post from SG Road Vigilante where the camera car is being harassed by a Toyota Premio from Geylang all the way until the end of the Thomson Flyover on the PIE towards Jurong. The incident happened on 10th of June, 2020 and we all know that there can be no smoke without fire. Coming out from Lor 19 Geylang and merging into Geylang Rd, the camera car must have honked the offending Premio as the Premio appears to be stopping in the middle of a busy and messy four lane road for no reason. In the Premio driver's defence, he could have trying to pick up a passenger as the car is under the Private Hire scheme and can be seen using his hazards. Unfortunately for him, he chose to lose his temper when he was honked at by the camera car, a Toyota Noah/Esquire, which could very likely be another Private Hire vehicle rushing to pick up/drop off another passenger. As we can see, in the process of intimidating the white Toyota MPV camera car, the Premio driver drove through a red light along Geylang Rd. From the various submissions of video to the SGRV's page, the whole event only ended when both of them drove past the Thomson Flyover, with the Premio driver speeding off after wildly gesturing at the camera car. Naturally the comment sections were full of unkind words for the "ah beng" in the Premio... So do you think the Premio driver is in the wrong? Or is there another side to this story?
