  1. The vitriol in the comments is palpable. What happened? A motorcyclist hit a Volkswagen Golf while lanesplitting on the Pan-Island expressway (PIE) on 7th August. The motorcyclist made a sudden swerve and hit the car, causing him to flip forwards and off his bike. Looks like when an NPC glitches out in a video game. What has people in the comments riled up is that the motorcyclist was registered under a Malaysian plate, which would (apparently) make it difficult for the Golf driver to get compensation for damages as it is a foreign vehicle. Online chatter Some blamed the motorcyclist for the crash, coming up with a multitude of reasons. Others took pity on the driver’s situation, which was indeed very suay. ========= 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. Finally https://www.onemotoring.com.sg/content/onemotoring/en/on_the_roads/road_projects/construction-of-vehicular-underpass-at-pie-exit-26a--major-.html?fbclid=IwAR2h6CvLxHOvFTAMgqcwhEnpxj50NSGW5RbgEcxkvTS79tWuGcOCFEeJVas https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/transport/singapores-sole-right-hand-expressway-exit-to-be-replaced?utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Facebook&xtor=CS1-10&fbclid=IwAR3jeOZbHr6cYvzA_-KTLfBAn1s-1FO-f0PHQjj7FW6r6LvUIXjQI3Nb9Do#Echobox=1540164192
  3. Source: https://mothership.sg/2023/05/right-side-expressway-exit-moved/ The Pan-Island Expressway (PIE) Exit 26A will be relocated from the right to the left side of the expressway from Sunday, May 28, 2023, at 5am, the Land Transport Authority announced. The current PIE Exit 26A -- west bound towards Tuas -- is located on the right side and vehicles must keep to the right-most lane to exit, which is unlike other expressway exits that are on the left. The new PIE Exit 26A comprises the new Rifle Range underpass, which runs under the west-bound PIE. With the new exit on the left, motorists will be able to exit the PIE more smoothly and continue their travel towards Dunearn Road/ Clementi Road and Upper Bukit Timah Road, LTA said. There is no change in travelling direction after exiting. Following the opening of the new exit, the previous PIE Exit 26A will be removed. LTA will also realign the existing Hua Guan Avenue and progressively reinstate it into a standard dual one-lane road. How the new exit was constructed To construct the left exit, works were carried out in phases with diversions undertaken to minimise disruptions to the traffic on PIE and ensure safety of motorists and workers, LTA said. Engineering challenges encountered include having to contend with a unique terrain with shallow rock outcrops and working within a narrow working corridor beside a “live” expressway. Controlled rock blasting was carried out in stages to remove the granite rock outcrop, LTA explained. This phase had been carefully calibrated due to the proximity of the site to residential developments and the PIE. Covid-19 and the resulting manpower crunch also posed additional challenges to the project, LTA added. In the coming weeks, informational and directional traffic signs will be put out to inform and guide motorists of the relocation. All photos via LTA
  4. As expensive as cars are nowadays, I doubt this driver has enough money to get away from the consequences if this almost turned into a snuff film. What happened? On the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE) a cambike was just minding its own business when a Toyota Sienta forced its way through on the same lane. You can hear the cambike swear at the car after the near miss. I would too if I almost died like that. Unfortunately, it also seems that the penalty for vehicular manslaughter is surprisingly low. Motorists caught causing death performing a negligent act may be punished with imprisonment for no longer than 5 years, or with a fine or with both. It is also not guaranteed to ban the offender from driving for life, and can instead be reduced to a period of time as the court sees fit. Online chatter. The driver was of course criticised for his dangerous driving. The car being under the Private Hire scheme didn’t help and added to the driver’s ridicule (and the bad rep of PHV drivers). Someone in the comments had an interesting plan to get an insurance claim and commit insurance fraud. ========= 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 – A Toyota Allion hits the brakes and hazard lights just before an ERP gantry. Netizens try to rationalise this selfish and entitled behaviour. With ERPs back in operation, it is no surprise to see incidents like this occurring. For example, the ERP gantry along the AYE just before or after the Celemti Ave 6 exit. Back when I lived in the West (for a short time), I would always see cars and motorbikes parked near the bus stop or road shoulder to avoid paying the ERP toll. Today’s incident might be a little different, maybe? Let’s watch the minute-long video and find out your opinion. What happened? A Toyota Allion hits the brakes and its hazard lights just before entering an ERP gantry along the PIE at the Mount Pleasant exit. The cam car directly behind the Allion is having none of it, and after blasting two words in Hokkien (hint it involves the female genitalia), he doesn’t hide his displeasure with a long, angry horn. Did the Allion try to evade the toll? I decided to do some research. Honestly, it’s peanuts compared to some ERP gantries closer to or in town. But I digress. Let’s have a look at the time indicated on the gantry in question. It’s 8.41 at $1.00. Yes, the next time period would be $0.50, but do you think the driver is doing that to evade paying $0.50? Is the answer obvious yet? With the facts in front of us, I think it’s highly likely a case of ‘forgot to put the cashcard in the IU'. The charge is $10. I kena before. That being said, I agree that what the Allion did was dangerous for vehicles directly behind it. But the cam car driver could have practiced more patience. He just sounds like a grouch. Online Chatter There are of course people who think it was very inconsiderate and dangerous. ========= 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. The popular saying, "It takes 2 hands to clap" has stuck around for a long time; and it could not be more true for many drivers locally and worldwide. I think most Singaporean drivers have this phrase engraved into their hearts, haha! Recently, a video showing a Mercedes-Benz S-Class (cool car) misbehaving on the PIE (not cool behaviour) on the way to the ECP made its rounds on the various Facebook traffic communities, garnering a lot of activity in the comment section. Video here, below: Laying it down As you can see, the video has it all: showing the Mercedes swerving from lane to lane abruptly, flashing the hazard lights and of course, playing the braking game! These are very dangerous actions to make as they will endanger the safety of other road users by acting so recklessly. Wait... Could there be a backstory here? That's what we're all asking here, and that's what we all want to know! We should be asking ourselves, does it make sense for the owner of an expensive car to act out like that for no reason? Why risk the demerit points, and the opportunity to drive around? That's where the adage "It takes 2 hands to clap" comes in mind. We were thinking--- since the video was cut and edited, there could have been a series of events that occurred before the misdemeanours occurred. Court of public opinion Netizens weighed in, and readers can see that many of them share the same idea: People were suspicious of the cam car's intentions. Yes, why not post the whole video? More and more people chimed in: We want to see too! Oh dear... Like we said before, "it takes 2 hands to clap." The popular conclusion was that the cam car driver must have done something to provoke the Mercedes driver, causing him to lash out in such a manner. But of course with such antics, backlash also came: After all, roads should be safe for all to use. There were also more level-headed commentators: We agree! A better use of his resources for sure. We saved the best for last: Yes, the Mercedes driver may have been angered by rudeness from the camcar as speculated. But that doesn't mean he should be reacting like this, nor should he be acting rashly and potentially causing road accidents with innocent motorists. An eye for an eye makes the world go blind We never like to see such cases happen. Since we are all sharing the road, it would do everyone some good to step back, take a breather and be the bigger person. It may be hard not to react to that sudden lane cut, or the rude honk from behind, but in the long run, it'll be better for you and your mental wellbeing. ========= 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. TL;DR – A Subaru Legacy recklessly speeds through morning traffic and weaves through tight pockets of space between cars. Ends up side swiping a Toyota Wish causing a jam on the PIE during morning rush hour. It’s 8am and you’re on the way to work. The morning traffic is not too bad and you look like you’ll make it to the office with little to no hiccups. But, life is funny and loves to throw you a curve ball every now and then. In this case, it’s in the form of a Subaru Legacy with a driver that has shit for brains. Watch the viral video here: Crazy driver This minute and a half (ish) video starts by throwing us straight into the action. A Subaru Legacy with a roof pod comes charging in from the left side of the cam car and can be seen aggressively switching lanes. It then hits a car, loses control and comes to a halt at lane 1. Is there a profile for roof pods? I don’t know about you readers but most of my friends who are considering to install roof pods or already have roof pods installed are married men with kids. Roof pods can give your car an additional 300 to 600 litres of cargo space - Which is space you’ll need especially if you have children. And as you can see from a quick search on Google, some of them don’t come cheap. Really hope the driver’s children were not in the car though. Sway la, the Wish An image of the damage to the Wish was also uploaded along with the video. I’m pretty sure it was more than the Wish but the video footage of impact is quite blur and it happened really quickly. There seems to be another stationary car on lane 1 (besides the idiot) that was affected by this incident. Online Chatter Somehow the PIE happens to be prone to traffic jams for some reason. Not to mention the driver’s “maybe” children in the car. Yeah lo. ========= 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!
  8. TL;DR – We see seven vehicles involved In yet another massive chain collision on the PIE. Footage of the aftermath shows a Harrier resting on top of a Prius. The first half of the day saw many news reports and posts about this accident that happened along lane 1 of the PIE. Channel News Asia The Straits Times Tik Tok You can watch the vido of the aftermath on Tik Tok. Facebook Or you can watch it on Facebook (courtesy of Roads.SG) 7 Vehicles involved Besides the obvious Toyota Harrier sitting on top of the Toyota Prius, we also spot 2 Honda Vezels, a Strides Taxi, a blueSG car and what seems to be an Audi A3. How the Harrier ended on top of the Prius is definitely a huge question mark for everyone. Hopefully, someone will post the footage of the actual accident soon and I’ll update the article. Injuries and arrests It’s reported that five people were injured, two of which were sent to the hospital while the other three declined to go to the hospital. Additionally, a 38-year-old man was arrested for suspected drink driving (Source: The Straits Times) Online Chatter I think you drive anywhere also there’s always a chance of an accident occurring. Always keep a safe distance from the car in front of you and look out for idiot drivers. This person might have a point somewhere. I would like to know as well. blueSG, care to comment? I try to steer clear away from blueSG cars when I see them on the road. Not all of them, but most of them drive like they don’t want to see tomorrow. ========= 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. Accidents on expressways are common. When that happens, it is essential to turn on your hazard light and put up the reflective triangle sign to warn other motorists of the accident that is obstructing the road. Otherwise, this may happen: What Happened? The accident above occurred on the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE). A white car with a damaged bonnet that was involved in an accident earlier stopped on lane 2 of the expressway. The blur sotong driver of the white car left it without its hazard lights turned on, nor did he put up a reflective triangle sign behind his vehicle to warn other motorists of this obstruction. Instead, he stood on the centre divider helplessly while waiting for assistance to be rendered. Just then, an SMRT taxi, a Toyota Prius travelling in lane 2, failed to notice the stationary vehicle and rear-ended it forcefully. The rear-end impact was so great that the white car's boot burst open. And within seconds, a Toyota Sienta travelling behind the Prius failed to react in time and rear-ended the SMRT taxi. The chain collision caused smoke to be emitted from the vehicles and debris to be flunked around everywhere across the expressway. So this is why ladies and gentlemen, don't be a blur sotong. Always remember to turn on your hazard light and use the reflective triangle sign in such situations. Here's wishing all those involved in the chain collision a speedy recovery! Netizens' Comments Either blind or they don't give a d@mn. I wonder which is more jialat... The Toyota Sienta got me lost for words. HAHHAHA the driver's palms confirm sweaty after that near-miss! ========= 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. A pet peeve of mine is when commercial vehicles (Eg. Vans, lorries, tipper trucks) travel on lane 2 of the expressway. And I am certain this is a pet peeve of many drivers in Singapore. Due to the speed limit imposed on these vehicles, they often cause a slow down in the lane they are travelling in (assuming traffic is clear and they are driving under the speed limit). However, just because they are commercial vehicles, does it give them the right for passenger vehicles to "bully" them? Watch this video to find out what I mean: IMG_7319.MP4 What Happened? The accident above involved a lorry (cam-vehicle) and a Lexus RX300 SUV along lane 2 of an expressway. The lorry was travelling along lane 2 of the expressway at a constant speed before the reckless Lexus SUV decided to cut in front of it abruptly. Just as the Lexus RX300 switched lanes and accelerated, the car in front of the Lexus SUV also switched lanes simultaneously. As a result, the Lexus SUV performed an e-brake to prevent rear-ending the car in front of it. Unfortunately, the lorry travelling behind the Lexus SUV could not react in time and rear-ended the Lexus SUV with a significant amount of impact, shattering its rear window. It is noteworthy that the lorry was not travelling above the speed limit, nor was it speeding, as the lorry alarm could not be heard throughout the video. Netizens' Comments If you're a defensive driver, I am pretty sure you will have enough time to brake. Well said, sir!👏 Technically, the lorry is allowed to be on lane 2 of the expressway. But regardless, "Yes you can travel as fast as the other cars at 80-90kmh but can you stop as fast as other cars too?" is a very valid point for consideration. ========= 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. Personally, I strictly employ the 2-second rule, especially during heavy (heavier) traffic and wet weather. The extra distance and time provided by the 2-second rule will be crucial for you to react accordingly when the car in front of you performs an abrupt brake. Watch what happens when one doesn't leave a safe distance from the car ahead: What Happened? A total of 14 vehicles were involved in 3 clusters of accidents along lane 1 of the PIE, with two clusters being multiple chain collisions. According to the dashcam footage, both the chain collisions seemed to have occurred just moments earlier. The first cluster This was most likely the cause of the subsequent accidents. It involved 3 cars: A Toyota Prius A Toyota Vios A Mazda CX-3 The second cluster The most 'rabak' out of the three, involved a total of 8 cars and a mini-van. The 8 cars consists of: A Nissan Sylphy A Hyundai Elantra A Toyota Corolla Altis A Toyota Wish A Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class A Mercedes-Benz C180 Two unidentifiable cars that were squashed against the concrete barrier The final cluster The dashcam footage captured the last accident or final cluster, which involved 2 cars: A Honda Civic An Audi TT Unfortunately, despite being able to brake in time due to the ample safety distance ahead of him, the Honda Civic still got rear-ended pretty hard by the Audi TT. The impact of the collision caused the Honda Civic to surge several metres ahead. The 2-Second Rule Could the 2-second rule taught to us in driving school prevent this series of accidents? Possibly, if each driver practices this rule - Take a look at the Honda Civic that managed to stop in time with the 2-second rule employed by the driver. I am certain that with the 2-second rule, there would be fewer cars involved in the massive chain collision due to the added time and distance for each driver to react accordingly. Netizens' Comments I hope this clears up the confusion on why the Honda Civic was flashing his high beam at the cam car. I also wonder why🤔 Well, that escalated! ========= 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!
  12. I'm not saying there are supernatural forces behind this incident, but it's not improbable. With the cam car travelling in Lane 1 and the lorry travelling on Lane 2, the video starts with the cam car diagonally behind the heavy vehicle on the PIE. As both vehicles manoeuvre around a bend, the cam car promptly overtakes the lorry. This explains the change in perspective throughout the video. As if something had possessed the vehicle, the lorry suddenly skids to the left. The driver counters the skid by turning the wheel to his right. Luckily, no vehicles were between the cam car and the taxi behind it, leaving a vast space open for the lorry to enter. Due to the inertia from the sudden right turn, the back of the vehicle forcefully swings out. The driver then turns his wheel to the left, resulting in the vehicle performing a 180-degree spin, reminiscent of those served by ballerinas at a recital. The vehicle ends up back onto Lane 2. Towards the end, the back of the lorry slams against the front of a moving shipping truck in Lane 3. Honestly, with that kind of stunt, it is definitely a miracle that the lorry driver managed to avoid a potentially fatal collision. Netizens' reactions Several netizens commended the driver for his quick thinking and amazing skills at handling a skidding lorry, while others seemed to speculate possible reasons behind the sudden skid. He was so quick to react too! Judging from the video, it is not certain if the lorry was speeding on that day. Seeing how easily the cam car overtook the vehicle, I would not be that quick to jump on the 'lorry must have been speeding' train. Hopefully, he's alright! ======== 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!
  13. Source: https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/transport/singapores-only-right-turn-expressway-exit-along-pie-will-make-way-for-new-underpass-later-this-year SINGAPORE - Some time in the second half of this year, motorists on the westbound Pan-Island Expressway (PIE) turning off to Clementi Road and Upper Bukit Timah Road will use a left exit instead of one on the right. The right Exit 26A - the only right turn in Singapore's expressway network - will be removed to improve safety, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said. When completed, the new Exit 26A will lead motorists to a depressed ramp on the left, which will loop around to the right to an underpass going underneath the PIE. The project - undertaken by Megastone Holdings for $32.7 million - is in an advanced stage of completion. The builder has excavated part of the underpass, and that stretch of the PIE has recently reverted to its original alignment. A temporary diversion on the left - built in July 2019 - has been closed off, and will be removed once works are completed. An LTA spokesman said that because of a manpower crunch brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, the project, which was supposed to be completed last year, is now slated to be finished by the end of this year. He added that the terrain also posed challenges to the construction process. For instance, the builder had to excavate beneath an existing expressway, digging through hard granite. "The ground below is made up of granite rock outcrop, commonly referred to as Bukit Timah Granite," the spokesman said, referring to a rock formation spanning the central and northern areas of Singapore. The granite had to be removed in stages through controlled rock blasting. Blasting had to be carefully calibrated because of the proximity of a "live" expressway and housing estates. Work to construct the remaining vehicular underpass - a one-lane road - has begun, LTA added. The authority had previously said that the move to replace the solitary right exit was prompted by a regular review of the road network, as well as feedback from road users. With the current right exit, goods vehicles - which are supposed to stay in the left lane - have to filter across several lanes if the drivers want to get to Exit 26A. Besides safety concerns, the LTA said, this slows down traffic flow. Mr Bernard Tay, chairman of the Singapore Road Safety Council, said the council welcomes the initiative to remove the right-hand PIE exit. "It's a good move... as usually, the extreme right lane is for overtaking vehicles," Mr Tay said. "By removing the exit, we will avoid situations where fast-moving vehicles have to slow down to give way to vehicles intending make a right-turn exit." Transport consultant Gopinath Menon, a retired LTA planner, said it is “unorthodox” to have an exit on the right lane of an expressway. “But with proper advance warning signs, the system has fared satisfactorily for close to 40 years, though unfamiliar drivers may face some difficulty. The slower goods vehicles will also have to change from the left to the right lane to exit, which can be difficult during rush hours.” Hence, moving the exit to the left is “desirable”, Mr Menon added.
  14. Let's face it, besides cyclists, motorcyclists are the next 'most vulnerable' on our roads. Unlike cars, motorcyclists deal with a higher amount of risks, such as the risk of losing balance and skidding. Watch this video to see how simple road debris could easily endanger a motorcyclist's life: What Happened? It seems like any other day on the PIE - The traffic was moderate, roads were dry, and the weather was great, with ample visibility for motorists to have a clear sight ahead of them. As the cam car travelled along lane 1, two motorcyclists passed him by lane-splitting between lanes 1 and 2. Here's where a keen observation is required: After the first motorcyclist travelled quite a distance from the cam car, he was observed to have performed a subtle evasion manoeuvre to avoid a piece of debris in between lanes 1 and 2. The second motorcyclist passes the cam car just then, and he is not so fortunate as the motorcyclist before him. The Fall As he could not spot the debris and react accordingly, he ran over it at high speed, which caused his motorcycle to jerk up mid-air. Upon landing on his front wheel, the motorcyclist lost control of his motorcycle, which caused him to swerve left and right before falling hard. Due to the impact, the motorcyclist ended up rolling quite a distance while his motorcycle skidded for a good 100-150 metres. The Weird Part Here's the part where I find it weirdly coincidental. Towards the end of the video, two cars are observed to have stopped along the road shoulder in the vicinity of the road debris. Here are two possible reasons as to why they were there: 1. The piece of debris was from either car. 2. This is the more likely reason - Similar to the motorcyclist, both these cars were victims of the road debris and ran over it as well. What do you guys think? Netizens' Comments Here's a big thank you to Google and the Waze community!👏 Well, that's going to be tough for LTA to enforce...

  15. NGL, road altercations in Singapore is a common affair. However, the extent of these altercations varies from minor ones that diffuse within seconds to major ones that go back and forth, intending to provoke each other. Watch this Honda Civic's persistent provocation towards a motorcyclist: What Happened? A Honda Civic was caught in the act of intentionally provoking a motorcyclist on the PIE. The Honda Civic was seen tailgating closely behind the motorcyclist before abruptly cutting in front of him. The Civic slows down to be alongside the motorcyclist. However, the motorcyclist passes him while making a hand gesture towards the Civic driver. The Last Straw It was at this point that the Honda driver lost it. Once again, he changes lane to tailgate the motorcyclist while flashing his high beam at him. The Honda Civic driver then attempted to 'sandwich' the motorcyclist between itself and a van. In response to the Civic's action, the motorcyclist makes another hand gesture before zooming off. Sadly, the actual audio could not be heard due to the background audio in the user-submitted video. But I am speculating that there was lots of honking involved. What Did The Motorcyclist Do? TBH, I highly doubt the motorcyclist is an innocent party in this altercation. Yes, judging from the video, he may seem innocent. However, there seems to be an encounter between these two that wasn't caught in the dashcam footage. Regardless, the Honda Civic driver was acting like a total d!ck throughout the entire video. (BTW, the lyrics of the background music is a very apt message to the Honda Civic driver) Netizens' Comments With his car plate made known, I hope TP does something about this Civic driver. "Attempted murder" seems a bit far-fetched tho... The above is such an unpopular opinion that bears so much truth. ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook!

  16. An overconfident motorcyclist attempts to enter a corner at a low angle and ends up getting his pride (and his bike) hurt. In the early hours of this morning, a driver was travelling along the PIE when he noticed the dangerous stunt. In the video, a motorcyclist appears from the left of the cam car at high speed as both vehicles enter a bend. The rider maintains his speed as he corners the bend at a shallow angle. Maybe he’s trying to be like the MotoGP champion, Valentino Rossi? As the cam car is about to clear the bend, trouble strikes the overconfident rider as he starts to accelerate before the bend ends. The motorcyclist suddenly falls with his bike, which sends him across the road and into the highway guardrail. Luckily, the silver car in front of the cam car manages to stop in time, narrowly missing the rider by an inch. The video ends with the cam car approaching the smashed bike. The rider steps out from the bushes surrounding the guardrail, dusting himself off as he walks to his bike. Another concerned motorcyclist stops and picks up a mobile phone as he makes a quick U-turn to help the rider out. Looks like someone needs to get back to driving school and learn how to properly perform a corner. Riding around bends For those who need it, the Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency has a guide on how to safely ride a motorcycle around a bend. Before entering a bend, riders have to judge how sharp the bend is and the speed at which they need to be travelling at in order to ride under control. Here are a few things one must consider when riding through a bend: Netizens’ reactions ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook!

  17. I’m sure there are many people who drive a ‘little’ over the speed limit on expressways, especially if traffic conditions are clear. After all, what's the harm in speeding it up a little? However, this mentality bites us in the butt when unforeseen circumstances occur – such as the sudden appearance of TP officers. These drivers show us why it’s crucial to pay close attention and keep to the speed limit while driving on the expressway. The video starts with the cam car travelling on the PIE along Steven Road. Right behind him, several drivers on the inner lane casually cruise by. Just as the cam car merges into the left lane, the driver notices two groups of TP officers on the left road shoulder of the expressway. The first group of officers attended to a stationary car on the road shoulder, while the second group were parked further down. The sudden appearance of these TP officers startles the drivers on the inner lane, leading them to hit the brakes and slow down to avoid getting fined for speeding. This, however, proves to be futile as the drivers fail to notice a stationary white Mercedes taxi in front of them, resulting in a massive chain collision. It is unclear if the taxi suddenly braked because of the TP officers or whether it was already involved in an accident prior. If only the drivers had paid more attention to the road, they would have saved their vehicles and wallets from an expensive repair job. Netizens’ reactions Yep, if these drivers did nothing wrong and were sticking to the speed limit, they wouldn't be in such a hurry to slow down.

  18. Hi, Car was involved in a chain accident at pie towards tuas before clementi road exit yesterday around 2pm and the car behind me hit and ran away. Appealing for witness that saw the chain accident. Please help on this matter if there are any witness. Thank you.
  19. A black Toyota Hiace van speeds and tailgates on Lane 1 of the PIE expressway, which results in a nasty chain collision accident as he hits a motorcyclist. Again, another entitled driver who thinks he owns the road? The video starts with the camcar travelling slightly behind the van on Lane 2, as the Toyota Hiace speeds up on its own lane (aka the lane that is only intended for overtaking or for emergency vehicles). It is also important to know that at this point, there is a motorcyclist travelling in front of the van in the same lane. However, the driver of the van fails to notice the motorcyclist as he speeds up and crashes into him. The motorcyclist is flung off of his vehicle and onto the middle lane from the impact of the crash. Due to the van's high speed (it is estimated that he was travelling above 70 km/h), the vehicle is unable to fully stop and ends up smashing the rear end of another white car, crushing the motorcycle in the process. The video ends with the camcar stopping slightly behind the motorcyclist, who is seen wriggling on the floor from his injuries. Are vans allowed to travel in Lane 1? It is a common myth (or belief) that vans are not allowed to travel on the first lane of the expressway, let alone tailgate and speed on it. According to LTA, there are no special restrictions for Light Goods Vehicles in terms of traveling on the expressway. The only thing to take note is that these vehicles should travel between 60km/h to 70km/h and that it is recommended for them to stay in the third or second lane, given that they don't hog traffic. While this does mean that the van can travel on the first lane when necessary, it does not excuse the Toyota Hiace driver's reckless actions. Even though tailgating is not technically illegal, the consequences of a serious accident caused by tailgating could result in the driver's license being suspended, a large fine and demerit points, and even jail time. Netizens' reactions I'm not sure if the van is modified but it is true that drivers are getting more and more daring these days. 😱 Honestly, this sounds like a great idea but I doubt that would stop vans and other commercial vehicles from speeding. 😓 We wish the motorcyclist a speedy recovery (no pun intended) and that the van driver learns his lesson from speeding and tailgating on the expressway. There is no reason for drivers to ever be this reckless while on the road and I sure do hope that he gets his due comeuppance from the TP. ------------ Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

  20. 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 that choked up the PIE, leaving only 1 out of 3 lanes passable. The Outcome The video showed 6 vehicles involved in the accident – The tipper truck, 3 lorries, 1 Toyota Corolla and 1 Hyundai Advante. The impact from the collision was so great that fumes began to emit from the engine bay of the Hyundai Avante. One lorry had its side completely torn off as a result of the collision. As a result of this massive accident, debris was strewn across the PIE. PSA: If you happen to drive past this stretch of the PIE, do check your tyres for any puncture. UPDATE: A total of 13 people were injured from the accident. While 10 of them were conveyed to the hospital, 3 of them were assessed by SCDF for minor injuries and refused to be conveyed to the hospital. An Underlying Matter Despite all the attention on the accident itself, there is an underlying issue – The safe transportation of foreign workers. Online sources mentioned multiple workers were present in the lorries when the accident occurred. Accidents like the above are why stricter regulations that enforce a safer mode of transporting foreign workers should be mandated.

Netizens' Comments Claim insurance for a normal accident also headache already, let alone this one. Indeed, there was nothing that cars on lane 1 and 2 could do. Whoa there cowboy!

  21. TL;DR – Video footage of a Honda Stream cutting through tight pocket of spaces on the Pan Island Expressway (PIE) makes one think of a particular Malay supernatural character. What is an Orang Minyak? For the benefit of people who are not familiar with the term, the direct translation for ‘Orang Minyak’ is ‘Oily man.’ Image by Deviant Art It is a supernatural being with a strong coat of oil/grease that can slip through any cracks or holes in your home. Back to the Honda Stream Like the Orang Minyak, the Honda stream in this minute-long video slips through small pockets of space between cars like butter. Here’s the video: Hold up, can an MPV do that? Well, the classification of the Honda Stream is technically a COMPACT MPV, but that doesn’t mean it’s small. Image by sgCarMart.com The only reason it could manage such a feat - The other motorists let it. At this moment here. And here. If the cam car or the car in front had decided to f#$% around with the Honda Stream, they could have accelerated, and the Stream would have hit them for a nice insurance pay out. Online Chatter There could be another story here. But imagine if the driver had hit other motorists. Wouldn't the emergency have escalated into an enormous $hit show?? --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

  22. The video footage is from a cam car, which was also involved in the chain collision. This accident happened on the Pan Island Expressway (PIE) towards Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway (KPE) before Exit 12, causing a massive jam. In the video, a white Audi A3 Cabriolet performed an emergency brake just before the cam car slams into its rear. Moments after that, an over-turned Honda Jazz slid along lane 2 of the expressway. What exactly happened? A top-down view of the accident revealed that four vehicles were involved in the chain collision. It turns out that the Audi A3 Cabriolet performed an emergency brake because of the car in front of it. However, it remains unclear why the front car braked so abruptly, causing this accident. There are speculations that the Honda Jazz swerved out of the lane to avoid this chain collision. As a result, it turned turtle from the sudden shift in weight balance. A 7-month-old girl and two men were conveyed to the hospital after this chain collision. Netizens' comments As always, please drive safely and practice defensive driving at all times. We hope that all those involved in the accident are well and wishing them a speedy recovery. --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

  23. Is the weather really that warm that you need to ride without clothes? This motorcyclist thinks so. Spotted on SGRV's Facebook and many other sources, a short-hair motorcyclist can be seen riding nude by the camera bike traveling along PIE towards changi. The nude rider then left the highway via the Bedok North Rd exit with the camera bike following closely, allowing us to get a closer look at this bewildering sight. Thankfully, the video that has been uploaded to the web doesn't show his private parts...
  24. A chain collision occurred on the PIE expressway earlier today (9 June) at around 8:45 a.m., with a motorcyclist seen crashing through the rear windshield of a car with his legs sticking out. Besides the motorcyclist, four other vehicles seemed to be involved in the collision. While the specific details of the accident are still unknown, the video's description indicated that the lanes in both directions of the expressway were shortly closed afterwards. With an increasing number of chain collision accidents happening locally, it is important for all drivers to be alert and cautious on the road. It is better to be safe than sorry. We hope that everyone involved in the accident is okay. Further information and updates regarding the accident will be posted in this article. Update: According to Mothership, it has been reported that the motorcyclist and a woman who was riding pillion on the same vehicle has unfortunately passed on from their injuries. We send our deepest condolences to their families.
  25. 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 offence. Naturally, most of us would go "haha the truck sure get it from the Police!" but no, nothing happened! What a miracle for the truck driver. But, as I mentioned at the start of this post, the Traffic Police might act after watching the video. It's a little too early to celebrate yet Mr Truck Driver. Here's what some netizens had to say about the matter. What do we think? Well, if he got off without any punishment, he should consider himself lucky and not do it again.
