  1. I would make a self driving joke but I’ve been told I can’t if I have no evidence. Roll the clip! What happened? A Tesla Model Y was spotted causing a massive jam at Woodlands Checkpoint because it’s at the motorcycle lane. The footage of the video is short but it shows that someone is behind the wheel so… What is going on? How did it come to this? Besides that we can see the sea of motorcycles waiting behind the tesla, as well as a picture showing that the Tesla might have been able to cross the checkpoint despite the incorrect lane. There is no indication that any self driving technology was involved. Online chatter While I may not be able to joke about the whole self-driving thing, the internet can do it on my behalf! Others criticised the driver for lack of skill, not reading any signage or knowing where to go in the checkpoint. ========= 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 - 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.

  3. Can anyone help me to calculate if it is worth to pump in Jb. Some ppl say worth, some say not worth. Staying at Pasir ris - about 26km into JB via woodlands. Usually I can pump 35Litre, go in at half tank and pump to brim. The cost of pumping in JB: - 35 x 2.76Rm = 97RM - Msia Toll - 20rm + 3Rm - SG Toll - SGD 1 Total convert to SGD is about $42 for 35 litres of Ron 97. In Singapore, SPC Ron 95 $2.29 x 35 litres = $80 - 15% = $68. So still have a saving of $26. Am I correct?
  4. 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
  5. It's Monday! And nothing says Mondays like a huge traffic jam on the way to work to brighten up everyone's mood, am I right? Well, if you were to see this scene this morning on the SLE just before 9am, I don't think you would want to be caught in it either. If they could, I'm willing to bet most people in that traffic jam would've love to just turn around and head right back home to bed. I think this GIF below puts most people's mood into perspective. I mean, 2 out of 3 lanes closed due to an accident on a Monday morning during the peak hour rush? That is sure to put anyone in a good mood for the start of the working week. Although I can't imagine it was any better for the owner of the Vezel, to have his week start out like this. Regardless, with the Honda Vezel being a relatively common car on local roads, you might think that most people would be familiar with them by now, in one sense or another. My family's car is also a Vezel, and I'll say one thing about it, it's not meant to be driven too aggressively, because the car just isn't built to handle aggressive driving. Now, I'm sure that there will be some of you out there who will vehemently disagree with me, but I'm not going to argue about it because I value my life. Let me explain. The Vezel is a CUV, or a crossover. Basically a downsized SUV. What do a CUV and a SUV have in common? A higher than normal centre of gravity. So what happens to objects with a higher centre of gravity when pushed too far? They topple over. Much easier too, since more of the object's weight is higher off the ground, causing more imbalance. It is for this main reason why we see high performance vehicles being low to ground, because it helps to lower their centre of gravity. The lower your centre of gravity, the more stable you are, and the less likely the chances of you tipping over. Call me chicken, call me a coward, but I am really not interested in paying for higher insurance premiums if I get involved in an accident. Not to mention the possible accompanying mental trauma that may result as of the accident. If you still don't get it, perhaps having your car flipped over on its back like a turtle and being pulled upright would make you feel a whole lot better. If this analogy floats your boat, then.... Good on your. Like this Vezel. It's driver's door wasn't closed while it was turned turtle, presumably because the driver had to crawl out of the vehicle, but hey, at least the actions of the tow truck helped to close his door. Here's hoping that whoever was in that Vezel managed to get out of the vehicle with minor or no injuries. Not the best way to start a new week and a new month, but I guess sometimes you have to take the bitter with the better. Please drive safe, people. Don't be another addition to the traffic accident statistics that the Traffic Police puts out annually.
  6. Anyone got stuck on PIE last evening for more than an hour and half? A few of us in the team did so, no thanks to someone who swerved out at the last minute, causing an accident that required a huge cleaning-up effort from the authorities. Thanks to SG Road Vigilante, we now know what caused the accident which happened at PIE's Steven Road exit in the direction of Jurong, at 630pm. While the accident itself didn't cause any serious injury, it is obvious that the Mazda 3 driver was at fault. According to the comments online, it does look like he or she was trying to avoid a frontal collision in his/her own lane by swerving into lane 2 but that unfortunately meant that the 2 motorcyclists that were lane-spliting, had to fall due to such a move. Kudos to both the tipper truck and the Malaysian van for being reactive to what was happening in front of them!
  7. Hi all, I bought a second hand Kia Cerato V2 manual transmission about a year ago. Generally very satisfied with the car however whenever the car is stucked in a heavy jam under hot sun, i tend to experience the clutch pedal to be gradually harder and harder to be depressed ( to a point it feels like racing clutch). However after i cleared the jam and travelled for about 15mins the clutch feel will be back to normal. Wondering if any other bros experienced such issues before. My previous kelisa and vios manual transmission did not experience such issues before. Looking forward to kind inputs and suggestions. Cheers.

  9. Went for the annual Qing Ming session yesterday at Peck San Theng @ Bishan. In other years, we will avoid the 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after the actual day, to avoid the expected jam. This year, though, my uncle asked my mother to go yesterday (which I realized only when i asked being stuck in the jam, that it's the very weekend of Qing Ming) as my that works best for my cousins. Big mistake! I went via CTE side and missed the long queue which started before SPH, then had the bad experience of having to try to cut into the bumper-to-bumper queue of cars waiting to turn into Peck San Theng… Even before I reached there (to start to squeeze), at the traffic light, can hear got cars sounding (not sounded) their horns non-stop - an indication of the frustration of being obediently queueing but seeing other vehicles cutting in in front. The fact that the cars inside the single-lane road were crawling (as most cars will stop to allow passengers to alight somewhere inside, hence stopping traffic), doesn't help. 10+ years ago, when caught in such jams, I would let my folks alight on the main road, then I proceed to go to the HDB carpark opp RI to park and walk over, so as not to get caught in the unpleasant situation like yest. Now my folks are 79 and 82, and my mother had knee op on one leg last year, and is going for the other leg next month. She walks with a walking stick, very very slowly - but refuses to use wheelchair. Yest was to pray to her late parents and elders, and she insisted must go. Wouldn't have been able to make her walk the long distance from main road to go in... Really no choice but had to resort to squeezing in and cutting queue. Can feel the frustration and unhappiness of the other drivers. To them all, very sorry for the bad driving behavior. Apology... Already told my mum, next year if my cousins/uncle side said can only make it on the '2+2' peak weekends, then we split and go separately. Confirm don't want to do this again.
  10. 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?
  11. Yesterday the jam at both causeways started to build up. When I went to bed at 2.30am, there jam was still there. When I woke up this morning at 5.30am, the jam at both causeway was still there. Now nearly 11 am jam is even worst. It's so bad before the customs. It's even worst especially at the tuas link where the jam from JB customs kick back to Sg customs. Wanted to go in for breakfast. But now almost lunch.
  12. Ever since the new flyover open near junction 10. Choa Chu Kang road between ITE college west and Junction 10 is jammed up very badly especially during peak hours. Now they changed the junction between choa chu kang road and bukit panjang road. The jam is even worse now. Any frequent drivers who uses the road everyday?
  13. And I am here surfing mcf in the massive jam.
  14. Check the jam from MCE and ECP exits to Central Boulevard. The bottle neck is at the cross junction just beside MBFC Tower 3. Good luck to all those who drive to work via Central Boulevard. I will refrain from commenting on the competent authority LOL. 2nd pic 3rd pic
  15. anybody caught in this crazy jam this morning at thomson ? what happen ?
  16. Dubai has long been associated with supercars and the rich. Even their police have supercars to patrol around in. On the topic of being rich, we all seemed to forget that many folks with normal levels of income still do exist. So it took us by surprise to hear that Dubai's director general, Hussain Lootah, wanting to keep normal people off the road so that they do not clog up the roads. Reason being, the rich are not happy their cars can’t stretch their legs with such congested roads. But why to such an extreme measure? Because Lootah does not believe in car-pooling, reduced car use or any other measures. Reason being Dubai, with more than 200 different nationalities among its residents, would invalidate any possible awareness programs. If this rule does become a reality, those affected are likely to be from the lower and middle income range. And if it does not, a rise in fuel prices, toll roads fees and other running costs incurred, would come true. As an alternative to driving, Dubai is trying to improve its public transport system and foresees an increase in use of the mass transit system which will began testing soon. For those willing to pay, more taxis and “luxury buses” will be available too. So should we be glad we don’t have to face such restrictions here?
