  1. 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.

  2. 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.

    Is this guy on the bike hot or is he hot?

    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...
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  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, I did not expect my first post for year 2021 would be to report an accident which happened earlier. Here are the details: Vehicles involved: Motorcycle (Grab Food delivery) and Honda Odyssey Registration plate: Too blur as it happen on the middle lane (lane 2), while I was driving on lane 1 a distance away Location: PIE towards Changi Airport, just after Mount Pleasant flyover Date/time: 15th January 2021, 14:24:17 hrs I have the video footage from my front dashcam, but as it was a slight bend and I was driving on lane 1, the video playback could not show the license registration plates clearly. But it did show the circumstances where the Grabfood motorcycle clipped the left rear of the Odyssey. I sincerely hope the motorcyclist a quick recovery. Shall not write too much, and should the motorcyclist or Odyssey need the video footage, please PM me. Lastly, do drive, ride and walk safe, all road users !
  8. Now this is pretty high level stuff. We have yet to see anyone try escaping ERP charges like this Malaysian biker did. Posted on ROADS.sg and COMPLAINT SINGAPORE's Facebook page is a clip of a Malaysian biker trying to 'siam' the ERP gantry by riding off road. The video is pretty self explanatory as we can see the Gantry on the slip road from the PIE merging into the CTE towards Ang Mo Kio, with the Motorcyclist slowly bumping along on the grass. That is some commitment there for sure, we reckon.

    Heavy rains expose deadly section of PIE

    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 drivers all lifted off the accelerator abruptly and/or had bad tyres at the rear while negotiating the turn, causing their vehicles to go into oversteer. LTA has made this corner less treacherous than before in the recent years but it still does seem to catch quite a few drivers out. Other than having good tyres, our advice when approaching the corner is to maintain your speed and to obviously keep to the speed limit. P.S. this corner does remind us of the infamous corner, Eau Rouge of the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium. Watch the clip and see how cars go off the corner as they lose the rear of their cars in that deadly turn.
  10. The last few days have been relatively peaceful for our roads until this particular accident that was post by SG Road Vigilante caught our attention. With the accident happening a couple of weeks ago (17 July), this is not the latest news but it is one of the most recent videos that surfaced online. What made us sit up and take notice is how the Toyota Hiace driver lost control of his van. To zoom past the camera car on the left at that speed must have meant that the Hiace driver lost it way before the Steven Road exit on PIE towards Jurong. He then went across 3 lanes at approximately 80km/h before smashing into the center barriers and coming to a stop in the middle of the highway. What do you guys think happened? Let us know in the comment box below!
  11. 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? Let us know in the comments below!
  12. Another Toyota Vios has gotten into an accident similar to the white 2nd generation example that went viral few weeks back on 23 March. Thanks to an unknown vehicle's in-car camera, we can see that this black first generation Vios lost it as it crossed the metal expansion strip that joins different sections of the Anak Bukit Flyover on the PIE. As seen on SG Road Vigilante's facebook page, the car seemed like it was speeding in the drizzle when the mishap happened. Check out the lorry driver's good reaction and evasive skills in avoiding the Vios! The Vios came to a stop on lane 1 with a Prius curiously avoiding it causally. For those who were wondering was that a Police bike on lane 3, it wasn't. Watch the full video and let us know what you think in the comment box below! 1.mp4
  13. Ever noticed many times, those long huge M'sia 10-14 wheelers lorries tend to crawl (10 km/h) or stop in the middle of expressways during peak hours? They want to avoid ERP charges? or engine no power to go faster? Often during peak hours, there were traffic congestion. But once passed the choke point, you will have that WTF moment because its one of those huge lorries crawling at snail's pace, hogging the traffic.
  14. State the road name, direction and location.
  15. Was driving along PIE and heading out of on sliproad to upper serangoon road this evening (25th Aug) around 10:35 pm. The car in front of me (a Toyota Wish) tried to filter right out of the lane and slowed down to almost full stop. I had to slow down quite a bit as well. The car at the back (Honda Accord - I think) slowed down as well and didn't hit me. I then moved off but then my passenger told me that they heard a sound of a possible accident at the back of my car. Managed to pull my car cam and found that a car behind the Honda probably hit the Honda's rear. So, though my car wasn't hit, I was wondering if the Honda might need help with a witness to prove that he was not in the wrong when he had to slow down. How do I go about reporting this? The online Police Traffic webpage doesn't allow me to as this didn't any injury, pedestrian or government property (I believe).
  16. Was driving from pie to tuas in the morning, there was an ambulance with siren on, and on the way back from pie to changi, there were two ambulances with siren on which came past at different timing. The traffic in the evening around 6+ was so bad that the cars weren't moving at some stretches of road and the cars in lane 1 had no space to move out for the ambulance. Was just thinking for the emergency cases, and the increasing bad traffic, what can be done to make sure these life saving moments can be improved Just some thoughts on a Friday evening...
  17. A bro of mine lamented to me that his Dad on a motorcycle was hit by a lorry/car. The one who knocked the dad down drove away quickly. HIT N RUN i guess. So appealing to anyone here if any1 has any videos(IN DASH CAMERA) please PM me. I will not ask for the video from you. I will give you my bro's contact and you liase directly after you see the prove that the Dad is really injured. Day of Accident : THURSDAY 26TH March 2015 Locations : PIE towards Changi Airport along Eunos TIME : Around 0345 Vehicle involved: Motorcycle and LORRY/CAR
  18. A driver was caught on video blocking an ambulance on the right lane of the Pan Island Expressway for five minutes. The ambulance was rushing a 45-year-old woman in critical condition to hospital. The Hyundai Matrix refused to give way despite the ambulance's sirens and even braked suddenly at one point, forcing those in the ambulance to be thrown forward ...video
  19. Driving from West to East and jams on PIE. Drove past three accidents and the last one near kallang saw a rider laying motionless on the floor with his bike at least 10m away and blood oozing out from his mouth...no report found...wonder how he is doing although to be chance of surviving is almost nil.... bless him, drive and ride with care, no money or time can buy back life...
  20. Saw an accident today (7-May-2014) around 4.50pm along PIE, near exit 26B. From my view, involved two heavy vehicles. I wonder why the car with siren (police or atos?) didn't stop to offer assistance but sped off? Caught by in-car camera http://youtu.be/g8wA7Lb1tu4
  21. Stomper Max P shared this photo of a Rolls Royce that had caught fire at Loyang Avenue this afternoon (April 13). Several other vehicles have caught fire recently, with the latest incident involving a white hatchback car that near Yishun Stadium on April 10. Stomper Max wrote in an email to Stomp: "Rolls Royce on fire at Loyang Avenue exit from PIE. Took this just now at 1.35pm. "We were passing by, not sure if anybody was injured. "At the time when we passed by, the Rhino firefighters just arrived. "Half of the backside of the car was burned and disintegrated already." Is that an old Rolls Royce? How come the rear caught fire first? Fuel leak?
  22. Seriously the TP should interview this GT7774R driver. https://www.facebook.com/JBTALKS.CC?ref=stream&hc_location=stream#!/photo.php?v=10152532676330166&set=vb.204917265165&type=2&theater Sorry repost https://fbexternal-a.akamaihd.net/safe_image.php?d=AQDYFExhR588qXDH&url=https%3A%2F%
