  1. Besides PMDs and cyclists, road hoggers on expressways are one of the most annoying motorists you can possibly encounter. But what should you do when you encounter one? Watch what happens to this cam car when he decides to tailgate a road hogging Mercedes: What Happened? Cam car was travelling on lane 1 of the expressway when he encountered a road hogging Mercedes-Benz B180. To signal the Mercedes driver that he was road hogging and should move to a slower lane, the cam car driver decided to tailgate the Mercedes ahead of him. In response, the foolish M
  2. Have you heard of the domino effect? According to Google, it is referred to as "the cumulative effect produced when one event sets off a chain of similar events". Watch the domino effect in action here: What Happened? A Honda Shuttle and a tipper truck slammed into each other as they decided to switch lanes simultaneously. The collision caused major damage to the Honda Shuttle, leaving it with a pretty wrecked rear with a shattered window. Debris also flew into the adjacent lanes, which caused a grey Honda Civic to jam brake on lane 2 of the expr
  3. There is a reason why drunk-driving is against the law and highly discouraged. The following video explains it all: What Happened? In the wee hours of the morning, at around 4am, a Toyota Corolla was being driven haphazardly along the Bukit Timah Expressway (BKE). In the dashcam footage above, the Toyota Corolla swerved left and right for no apparent reason and could not keep within its lane. Moments later, when negotiating a bend, the driver could not handle the turn and collided with the railing of the expressway. And it was not because the ca
  4. Transcab taxi drivers are notorious for their driving behaviour among the various taxi companies. It is an impression that the public has developed over time, which I couldn't agree more. Here's why: Warning: This video contains excessive flashing lights. If you have photosensitive epilepsy, please do not watch the video What Happened? In the TikTok video posted by the cam bike, a Transcab taxi furiously chases an Audi A6 down an expressway. From the cam bike's speedometer, the Transcab taxi and the Audi A6's speed was approximately 100km/h or above. W
  5. Contrary to what was taught, your vehicle's high beam is seldom used as a safety feature to enhance your visibility. More often than not, it is a visual sign of giving the motorist in front of you a middle finger. Watch how a flash of high beam quickly turned this BMW driver unhappy: What Happened? This incident occurred at a Tampines Expressway (TPE) exit towards Punggol Road. While traveling on lane 2, the taxi ahead of the cam car indicated his left signal and proceeded to change from lane 1 to 2. The taxi continued leaving his left signal and started
  6. While we donโ€™t know what type of influence the driver was under in this accident, it definitely was not a good one. At around 8pm on Saturday (Jan 15), a driver spotted a Volkswagen Jetta driving diagonally in its lane on the AYE. Situated on the right lane, the silver car struggles to maintain its position in the middle of the lane. The vehicle veers slightly to the right now and then, with the driver attempting to correct its direction. Seconds later, disaster strikes as the Jetta veers too far to the right, hitting the road divider of the expressway.
  7. I assume that most drivers have encountered road hogs every now and then (I know, they're not that fun to deal with). While some of these road hoggers tend to be pretty new to driving, there are some incredibly annoying 'lao jiao' drivers who insist on holding up traffic during busy timings. Because of their behaviour, it's hard to switch lanes sometimes and it's even harder to keep calm when I'm in a rush. So what do you do when you encounter road hoggers? Do you just honk at them until they speed up or do you just suck it up and follow behind until they're out of your way? ๐Ÿ˜ž
  8. If you frequent the Pan Island Expressway (PIE) for your daily commute, you may have experienced a major traffic jam on Monday morning (27 Sep). Here's the reason behind the major jam during the morning peak hour: What Happened? The accident took place along the PIE, involving multiple vehicles. A blue container truck swerved across multiple lanes to avoid a lorry on Lane 3 of the PIE. This resulted in the container truck colliding into multiple vehicles, causing a significant amount of collateral damage. The accident caused a severe standstill jam t
  9. Everyone knows that skidding is a common problem for drivers, and I'm sure some have even experienced it at one point throughout their driving experience. As someone who has never had that problem yet (and I don't wish to), I'm not really sure what to do if my car were to ever skid. Do I steer away from the direction and pump the brakes or do I pray to God that I won't get to meet him so soon? Any tips on this? ๐Ÿ˜ฅ And also, I know that SG is probably filled with a lot of potential skidding hotspots. Are there any infamous areas that I should take note of? ๐Ÿ‘€ P.S. If you want
  10. A driver was caught reversing dangerously along Braddell Road with a moderate amount of traffic. It's insane! I know! The incident took place yesterday (July 6) at 3pm (which is around the time when traffic starts to pick up at that area). A red Honda Fit having missed the initial exit leading towards Lorong Chuan/CTE(SLE) along Braddell Road (see map to see where we think this happened), stops in the middle of the road with total disregard of the motorist behind it. As the video progresses, you realise that it's slowly reversing and stopping every few seconds to av
  11. As much as I like to eat my char siew rice at Fatty Cheong @ ABC market (not sponsored), I also like to diss all the irresponsible BlueSG drivers out there. Today, we have a YP BlueSG driver dangerously crossing a double white line at the exit of an expressway. Remarkable driving? I beg to differ. What is a double white line? What's the penalty? For driving without due care or reasonable consideration - Charged in court, up to $1,000 fine or imprisonment for up to 3 years or both (first offence) and a ban from driving for at least 2 years.
  12. So a quick disclaimer before we continue - We don't know what might happen after the Traffic Police gets alerted to this video evidence, or they might have even stopped the truck driver after the video got cut off. But what's happening in the video seems rather peculiar. Shared on SG Road Vigilante's page is this video of a Malaysian truck doing more than 90km/h on lane 1 on PIE heading towards Tuas on the 22nd of February 2021. Sometime later in the video, the Traffic Police closed in in their car and it looked like they had the intention to notify the Scania truck of its offe
  13. Not sure why anyone would risk their life doing something like this but hey it's quite funny in our opinion. We are guessing this young man which can be seen wearing shades (at night) and smoking, needs more followers for his Instagram or Tiktok. So he has to unfortunately, rely on his goofy dance moves and some courage to dance on our expressway ( looks like ECP to us). Did he garner more followers? Only he knows. Hopefully, with Fabrications About Singapore's sharing of his video and us also helping him out, he can achieve his goal.
  14. 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 kn
  15. 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
  16. With the weather turning slightly wetter in the recent days, this part of the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE) is turning out to be quite deadly. Shared by the 'good samaritans' of SG Road Vigilante, someone has been recording from his/her apartment some of the accidents that happened at the Jalan Anak Bukit flyover towards the direction of Jurong. As we can all see, all the four incidents had the drivers losing control of the rear of their vehicles as they crest over the left hand turn. Some of drivers looked like they oversped but not every one was doing so. We guessed these driver
  17. A video of two drivers speeding and almost crashing to their deaths seems to be circulating on social media, Whatsapp groups and Telegram chats. Here's the link to the 14-second video. They almost died In the video, you can see both the BMW and dashcam driver take evasive action to avoid a head-on collision with a stationary vehicle on lane 1 (rightmost lane). If they had crashed, based on how fast they were going past other cars on the road, they would have died. Online Chatter - Pro or lucky? I'm not even sure whether to be horrified or impress
  18. I wonder whether the traffic rules has changed lately Are Lorries and Vans allowed to take 2nd lanes of the expressway? I encounter many of them driving <70 km/h ,hogging the 2nd lanes during the evenings on PIE . Are they contributing to the congestion ?!
  19. Will the solutions be autopilot? Because humans have errors and lead to traffic build up?
  20. At last, 14 more days! Punggol is getting its new road to TPE/KPE being Phase 1 starting 25 Nov 2018. Hope that it alleviates the peak hour jam (even on weekends). Kinda of excited as I'm personally affected by the jam everyday. Let's look at the situation after it opens. But then again, it is during school holidays and the real situation should be reflected next year when school reopens. https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/new-punggol-link-road-to-tpe-kpe-10908120
  21. Surprise no one saw this? How true? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04Jg1XhzPmI
  22. Kind of curious, how closely do you follow the car in front on the expressway? EVERYDAY I see people following so closely. EVERY SINGLE day on a crowded expressway during peak hours. I am sure there are some of them here in MCF? The big question I have is WHY WHY? I know this has been discussed previously but I just had an accident on my new car a few weeks back so I thought to raise the awareness again. Driving during peak hour on the ECP. The guy in front of me was braking so I started braking too... then all of a sudden he probably slam his brakes because I see he
  23. As above. I don't usually travel around this period of time. But when I did yesterday, it was very crowded for the time stipulated on CTE. At the back of my head was wondering...... "who are really these ppl driving on the road at this hour? Aren't they suppose to be at work?" I personally took off yesterday to attend to some personal matters. So how about the rest? Outdoor sales, delivery, construction trucks, taxis, insurance agents, tai tai heading for tea-break?? Or everybody just like me took off on the same day to do some personal errands?
  24. http://transport.asiaone.com/news/general/story/cyclist-spotted-riding-along-mce-during-morning-rush-hour SINGAPORE - A cyclist was seen pedalling on the road shoulder of the Marina Coastal Expressway (MCE) this morning. A Stomp reader told the citizen journalism website that he had thought it was a motorcyclist. He said it was during the morning rush hour at about 8.30am when he noticed the cyclist entering the MCE from the East Coast Parkway (ECP) towards the city. He told Stomp: "Initially, at the first glance it looked like a motorcyclist, but I was shocked to realise it was a cycli
  25. Hi All, I am a frequent commuter of the expressways in Singapore. Noticed that the trucks (with up to 70km/h sticker at the back) like to go onto lane 2 on the expressways. Are there any reasons why LTA/TP/whoever made the decision to allow this to happen? On most times, I can see that the slow truck going snail slow while there are a long trail of vehicles behind it and clear path to the next vehicle in front, up to 3-4 lamp post. In the 80s, this wasnt the problem and most trucks would automatically keep left. Any good constructive comments are welcome to improve the OVER
