  1. TL;DR - A collision occurred in Yishun between a Kia Forte and Honda Vezel at the yellow junction box. Every Singaporean would know what it means to be kan cheong. We are basically born to sweat ‘kiasu-ness’. For our foreign friends, kan cheong simply means impatient, edgy and hasty. So a kan cheong spider just refers to someone who possesses such traits. Watch this 51-second video of a Honda Vezel colliding into a Kia Forte as it drives out from a minor road straight into the second lane of the main road. What happened? The Honda Vezel was coming out from a HDB block in Yishun (oof, what’s new?) onto the main road when an incoming Kia Forte zoomed past, causing a collision between the two vehicles. Inevitably, both the Vezel and Forte’s front bumpers suffered some form of structural damage from the impact. But the question is: who is at fault? Should the Vezel drive into the first lane first before signaling to the second lane, or should the Forte have slowed down, knowing that there is a yellow junction box just ahead? Let's hear what the netizens think: Seems like more people are faulting the Vezel for being so kan cheong. Perhaps if he took it one lane at a time, this traffic jam wouldn’t have happened. But of course, the Forte should have also attempted to slow down when approaching the yellow junction box as nobody will ever know if there’s a vehicle waiting to ‘eat’ into his/her lane - Classic example right here, man learnt it the hard way.

  2. TL;DR - Cam-car's attempt to filter behind the McLaren Convoy was disrupted by a McLaren 720S that sped past to prevent overtaking. A perfect example of monkey on wheels. Watch this 33-second video to see how this cam-car tried to sandwich between two McLarens but almost got 'rekt'. So what happened? The cam-car signaled right with the intention to filter to the next lane behind the McLaren Convoy. However, his/her attempt failed as a McLaren 720S sped up to prevent the cam-car from cutting into the lane - which was not wrong of the 720S but the cam-car definitely thought otherwise. The space between the 720S and the Convoy was the safety distance maintained and it was unsafe for the cam-car to overtake in that situation. But of course, the cam-car was clearly unhappy about it. In case you didn't know how powerful the 720S is: It's a supercar for a reason. Online Chat: Seems that everyone felt that the cam-car was the one in the wrong; he/she should’ve waited behind the trailer until the 720S has passed before filtering. Guess the cam-car just self-sabotaged him/herself by sending this clip to SGRV...? Bottom Line Driving without due care or reasonable consideration for other road users constitutes aggressive driving that can cause harm to other road users - it pays to be extra cautious on the road! ========= 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. TL;DR - As if driving with one hand on the wheel and the other on your phone, this Gojek driver decided to answer a call whilst driving on a wet and rainy day. To put the cherry on top of the cake, he was riding a paying passenger. Not quite smart of a move, mister. To answer the hypothetical question in the title: You should call the driver a biological mistake. Drivers like this do not deserve to be born. The lives of your passengers are literally in your hands! That's a huge responsibility! And what did the good ol’ Uncle Ben tell Peter Parker about responsibility? Watch this 30-second video to witness a severe lack of said responsibility: What happened? The private hire decided to make (or answer) a phone call whilst fetching a passenger. In the video, he sounded engrossed in the call while balancing the remaining bit of his attention span to watching the road and controlling the steering wheel. Regardless of how good a driver you are, using your mobile phone while driving is extremely dangerous. It's so dangerous that if you're caught, you could face jail time! BTT/FTT Refresher First time offender - imprisonment for a period up to 6 months or a fine up to $1000 (or both). Repeated offender - imprisonment for a period up to 12 months or a fine up to $2000 (or both). Let’s hear from the netizens: However, the comments section was split. Some were also defending the driver, noting that the passenger who filmed this could’ve simply asked the driver to not use his phone or at least use a Bluetooth headset instead. By posting this online, it might potentially cause the driver to lose his rice bowl. Moral of the story: Better be safe than sorry - one call could wreck it all. Put down the phone and drive safely. The call can wait, your life is more precious than anything else. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  4. TL;DR - A lorry was seen going against traffic to overtake slower vehicles on a single lane. The driver then squeezes his way back onto its lane when the driver realises that there's oncoming traffic. Patience is a virtue. As responsible road users, we should always keep safety at the top of our minds. This lorry driver definitely did not. Watch this 44-second video to see why. What happened? A speeding lorry veered onto the path of oncoming traffic in an attempt to overtake slower vehicles in front. Needless to say, this reckless maneuver almost caused an accident with the cam car. The lorry driver then casually proceeds to swerve back into its lane without giving a hoot about the cam car. or the car in its rear. Let's hear from the netizens: Rouge style driving indeed. Seems like netizens are expressing their anger at the lorry driver, as any normal law-abiding citizen should. Please stay safe on the road, your families are waiting for you to celebrate many more new years together! ========= 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. A video of a Hyundai i30 nearly driving into a cam car has been uploaded on Facebook. But who really is at fault? Watch the video to decide. Watch the video of how the incident unfolded here: In the video, the cam car is casually driving straight down Eunos Road, when the Hyundai i30 seen dashes out, almost causing himself a massive T-bone. Luckily the cam car driver was quick enough to jam brake. The cam car driver then turns to the right lane, and according to him, proceeds to get hounded by the Hyundai i30 by getting tailgated. Extra irritation and frustration was caused to the cam car driver due to the Hyundai i30's loud exhaust. From the video, it really looks like the Hyundai i30 driver was at fault. But what if I told you there was another side to the story? According to this facebook user who was at the incident, he claims that the cam car had signalled left, therefore it was the cam car's fault that he proceeded to go straight instead. He also goes on to accuse the cam car (who was apparently driving a Mitsubishi Attrage) of having 'offended him in the past'. A bold claim if true. It certainly brings another perspective to the saga. Another commenter made a fine point against the cam car driver. He pointed out how the cam car driver was also being reckless by suddenly swerving to the right, most likely not having checked his mirror doing so. So it seems that this case might be an ambiguous one. Although it seems like the Hyundai i30 is clearly at fault in the video, the netizen, if his claims are true, would paint the cam car driver might not turn out to be the saint that he is. Regardless of who is most at fault in this incident, we feel that the Hyundai i30 driver could have waited for the cam car driver to turn into the left lane (if he was actually signalling left), before coming out of the side road. This is an extra step of precaution that would make things safer for everyone. ========= 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. TL;DR – A Honda Fit cuts into the path of a cam car in an extremely reckless manner, nearly causing an accident. Caption from the video post on Roads.sg Facebook page. Watch the 10-second video below to find out what it means. What happened The incident occurred along Bukit Panjang Ring Road at about 6.45pm on 7th of December 2022. A blue/purple Honda Fit filters onto the main road and immediately changes lane recklessly. This abrupt lane change causes cam car to jam the brakes and depress the horn. It’s a short one today but let this serve as a public service announcement of sorts. Moral of the story There will always be idiots on the roads like this. It doesn’t mean that nothing will happen to you even if you have the right of way. Keep that in mind folks. Online Chatter As always, let’s see what people have to say. True stories. It refers to the Honda Fit. Just in case anyone’s wondering. ========= 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!
  7. Is encountering slower drivers on the road an excuse to do a dangerous overtake? Watch this video and decide for yourself. Watch as the incident unfolds just outside of a school: In the video, we can see that the Transcab Prius is attempting to do an overtake, using the lane with potential oncoming traffic. Super dangerous move. If there actually was oncoming traffic, the head-on collision would certainly have a high chance of fatality, especially considering the speeds that the taxi driver is travelling at. The taxi driver finally overtakes successfully. But at what cost? Crossing a continuous white line could potentially net the taxi driver demerit points. Is it really wise to save that few seconds for demerit points, that can cause a taxi driver his rice bowl? Probably not. We meet angry netizens again. This time, one of them says that it would be better to have his license revoked. Looking at the circumstances, we would be inclined to agree. Yet another angry netizen. But this time he takes the side of the taxi driver, saying that the camcar is road hogging. He even gains the support of 26 other netizens with the number of likes and reacts. Despite the overwhelming support this commenter got, we still believe that the taxi driver's actions was not warranted, especially when it was a in a school zone. In fact not only a school zone, but a school with students with special needs. This just makes the whole situation more dangerous to everyone. So it seems that this case divides opinion. Regardless of what your opinion is of the situation, we advise the utmost caution when driving near school zones, and to be alert for any students whop may be playing near or even on the road. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  8. TL;DR: C-HR driver is unhappy cam car driver did not let him into lane, proceeds to brake-check, confront and attempt to cause accidents “When in the wrong, just continue heck care since already wrong once” a motto this crazy C-HR beng believes in. To get an idea of the madness involved, watch the following 3.5-minute clip: What started it From 0:55, we can see “King Ander” — as inscribed on the C-HR’s driver side window — wanting to switch into the cam car’s lane, since his lane is left-turn only. He’s already left a significant gap from the white Serena ahead, and doesn’t seem to have signalled right, since there are no flashes from his mirror-mounted indicators. The cam car driver is having none of “King Ander’s” entitlement, so he just drives on. Displeased, the C-HR encroaches into the cam car’s lane as an attempt at intimidation, to no avail. Just before approaching the junction, the C-HR finally turns on its right indicators. Seeing the road clear up ahead, it gives up trying to merge, driving straight on and squeezing out the cam car in the process. Tyrannical behaviour commences Not satisfied with getting ahead, the C-HR seizes the opportunity to “punish” the cam car, flooring it across some chevrons and abruptly cuts across 2 lanes, just to perform a double brake check. At least he remembered to use his signals this time. Having boxed the cam car in traffic, he gets out for a confrontation to act tough. Another angle of this beng’s mug taken by the cam car’s passenger, with profane gestures and all; certainly not behaviour befitting a king. Realising they have all sorts of incriminating evidence, he finally retreats to his car, but not before a final "dirty trick”. As the cam car switches lanes to distance itself, this tyrant attempts to force the cam car off the road right across 4 lanes beyond his own, before switching again to the next lane, all without signalling. All in, the 8 (at least) infractions included: Failure to signal intention (multiple) Failure to stay in lane Driving over chevrons Driving into an oncoming lane Brake-checking Stopping on a double zigzag Causing an obstruction Attempting to cause an accident Online reactions The majority of comments appear to condemn both parties, stating that the cam car driver was partly at fault for not giving way to “King Ander”, despite his lack of signalled intention early on. While in the minority, there were still a few condemning his actions. What do you think, should the cam car driver be more gracious even if he was entirely in the right, or was this C-HR beng wrong to bully even if he's "King (Ander)" of the road?

  9. TL;DR – BMW 216I nearly hits school children at a pedestrian crossing in a school zone after blatantly ignoring two traffic marshals. A 14-year-old boy whom a BMW had hit in Punggol passed away yesterday after 3-weeks in hospital. You would think some people would be more careful on the roads after such a tragedy. Not this driver (coincidentally, the culprit in question drives a BMW 216I). Watch this 50-second video to understand why some people are fuming mad with this driver What happened Everything you need to see occurs in the first 8-seconds of the video. There are not one but TWO traffic marshals on either side of the pedestrian crossing. They raise their hands (and blinky light thingy) to stop oncoming traffic as a couple of Bukit Timah Primary school kids attempt to cross the road. But the BMW driver doesn’t give a rat’s @%#. It just charges forward without hesitation. Here’s a gif (just in case) In case you missed out on the moment and you’re lazy to scroll back, here’s a gif! Online Chatter You can be certain that no one was kind to the BMW in the comments section. IZZIT?!!!! Why are they like that ah? Idiots. Idiots everywhere! ========= 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!
  10. It is not everyday that you see a van smash into a fence and consequently flip over into the opposing lane after a drift. Watch this 14 second video and try not to chuckle: Context as to what happened before the video is unclear, but it seems that the van vehicle lost control of his van, failing to control the drift. He then proceeds to crash into the road divider fence and break into the opposing lane, almost causing another accident with an oncoming car. As you can see in this screenshot, the van is at an unrecoverable angle of drift. We can only imagine how freaked out the van driver must be. We also speculate that he might have tried to avoid another car, thus having to swerve his vehicle so violently. The van then lands on its side, almost hitting an oncoming vehicle. Luckily, the driver seems to not have been seriously injured as he was seen moving in the van even after flipping over. A netizen states that vans always drive quickly, but do not have the ability to take corners. This is a true statement that we feel van drivers should be wary of, especially when most of them do not change tyres regularly, resulting in low levels of grip. Another netizen says that van and lorry drivers are increasingly using the fast lanes on highways. He thinks that the traffic police has to up their game in keeping a lookout for such drivers, since they will most likely exceed their 60km/h to 70km/h speed limit there. This comment got us thinking. Maybe Singapore should implement stronger fences to prevent such accidents from happening? Let this video be a reminder to us not to make rash decisions on the road, and to slow down if we are unaware of the situation at bay. Also, we should never overestimate the abilities of the vehicle we are driving, regardless of whether it is a car or van. ========= 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. With so many videos of serious car accidents circulating around lately, you would think that drivers will learn to pay more attention on the road. Well apparently not for this reckless BMW driver who obviously has no concern about safe driving. Watch the 31-seconds video here and try not to rage: What happened? According to the caption of the video, the incident happened at Sembawang Road at around midnight last night. In the video, we can clearly see that the light has turned red at the 0:11 mark. Drivers and riders that can be seen in the video had either stopped or were slowing down when approaching the traffic junction. With the green light in pedestrian’s favour, the cyclist started to make his/her way across the road as would any of us. Just when the cyclist made about a quarter of his/her way across the road, SEVEN (7) WHOLE SECONDS after the lights had turned red, a BMW can be seen speeding on the middle lane into the frame of the video with NO ATTEMPT to slow down or stop. What the hell? Tragedy Strikes The speeding car smashed into the unsuspecting cyclist before coming to an abrupt halt. The high-speed impact sent the poor cyclist flying from his bicycle and onto the cold hard floor nearby. The video then ends with a nearby motorcyclist approaching the scene seemingly to render assistance. Online Chatter My exact sentiments! Who the hell approved this f*****’s license?! Clearly you are not suitable to be driving if you are BLIND AF. Umm, okay… I, for one, believe that there is no reason ever good enough to have such blatant disregard to road safety at the (possible) expense of innocent lives. If you want to die, don’t drag others down with you la please. Wtf, where the sauce bro?? I have seen my fair share of NON-BMW and MERC who were behaving recklessly on the road as well. It’s not the car, it’s the driver la. Last but Not Least Like what the comments above say, road users PLEASE, for the love of God, exercise caution whenever you are on the road – especially the helpless pedestrians. The green light may be in your favour but some people, like this BMW driver, have issues distinguishing between green and red or may possibly be distracted. Let’s all pray for the cyclist and that the reckless driver gets his/her due punishment! Stay safe and be safe everyone! ========= 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. TL;DR – A driver of a cam car (make and model unknown) took their grievances online to shame two Honda Civic Type-R drivers for dangerous driving. Unfortunately, things did not work out as planned. Netizens ended up flaming the driver of the cam car instead. A cam car driver was overtaken by not one but TWO Honda Civic Type-Rs along the CTE and decided to call out the two Type-R drivers for reckless and dangerous driving. In an unexpected twist, netizens started flaming the cam car driver instead. I don’t know how you feel about it, but it’s a great form of amusement to wash away those Monday blues, that’s for sure. Watch the 2min+ video here: An interesting takeaway At the 0.06 mark of the video, you can see the Gold Type-R entering the frame with its right signal on, attempting to cut into the cam car’s lane. But what’s interesting is that you can see cam car speed up to block the Type-R from doing so. Yet, cam car driver calls out the Type-R driver for dangerous driving? Hmmm. The second Type-R Agreeably, the second Type-R (silver) did drive rather dangerously. It squeezed into a tight pocket of space in front of the cam car and weaved through other cars to exit the CTE. It probably deserved the high beam from the cam car in that instance. But, as always, let’s hear what other people have to say. Online Chatter Not even 1 comment supporting cam car! ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  13. TLDR; Motorcyclist rides recklessly along a stretch of wet road on a rainy day and ends up skidding at a bend and falls down... hard. Watch the video for yourself below 295700502_1120202368852630_2227411090361525905_n.mp4 A motorcyclist has been caught on camera riding like he’s in a MotoGP race, swerving along a bend on a rainy day like he’s a professional racer. Unfortunately, that did not work out too well for him when he skidded along the bend and managed to fall down on his @$$. Maybe he has always dreamt of being a racer. For professional racers to make turns, their tyres do need to have a proper grip so that they don’t end up slipping and falling like the person above. Especially on a rainy day where the surface is wet, it would definitely be more important to drive with caution and at a slower speed Hope he managed to learn his lesson by now The open road is definitely not a place to practice your MotoGP racing skills. If there were vehicles nearby, this situation would definitely have been a lot worse. Netizen Comments Netizens express their take on the situation above, some hoping for the motorcyclist’s safety, and others criticizing him for his mistake. Road safety is not a joke if you want to keep your body parts intact. All in all, we hope the motorcyclist is safe and didn't manage to sustain any long lasting injuries. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  14. A Getgo Mazda 3 was caught on camera speeding over the road speed limit of 60km/h and overtaking the camcar that was traveling under the speed limit at 55km/h. Watch the video for yourself below 293530692_956129985780000_1463920411778136038_n.mp4 The video begins with footage of cam car travelling along Yuan Ching Road. At around the 0.02 mark, a Getgo Mazda 3 appears out of nowhere, zooms past and overtakes the cam car at a speed that exceeds the regulated speed limit of 60km/h, breaking traffic laws. The Mazda 3 was speeding as if it was in a fast and furious movie. Maybe there's a lack of responsibility with a car that’s not owned by the driver? What's the penalty? For speeding, the getgo driver can be fined an amount of up to $150 to $300 for minor speeding-related offenses. However, if the speed limit is exceeded by 40km/h, repeat offenders can potentially be jailed to a duration of up to 10 years. Your licence will also be revoked in the process, and you may be permanently barred from driving. Demerit points are also awarded to the driver according to the speed limit that he/she exceeds. Just don’t speed lah! Netizen Comments Netizens have expressed their take on the situation, mocking and criticizing the Getgo driver, though some have concurring opinions that the camcar was hogging lanes. Personally, I believe that the Getgo driver should punished severely for exceeding the speed limit. It is precisely this kind of irresponsible behavior that leads to fatal and irreversible road accidents. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  15. TLDR; Nissan driver engages in reckless lane change that could have led to a severe collision. Watch the video for yourself below Black Nissan NV350 was caught on camera recklessly lane changing at Exit 15 to Yio Chu Kang Road on CTE towards SLE, cutting it extremely close to the camcar and potentially resulting in a collision. The camcar then had to swerve and brake in order to avoid colliding with the Nissan. It almost seems like the Nissan vehicle did not check his blindspot and the lane before recklessly changing into a lane that was already occupied. This seems like extremely irresponsible behavior that could have resulted in massive damage if a collision had occurred. According to Traffic Police, reckless or dangerous driving could potentially warrant you liable to an imprisonment period of up to 12 months as well as a fine of up to $5000 or both. This is so as to promote road safety as well as to discourage reckless driving on roads. Netizen Comments Netizens express their take at the situation above, criticizing both the Nissan driver as well as placing partial blame on the driver of the camcar. Personally, I think that reckless lane changing on roads should definitely be harshly punished before irreversible consequences occur. But with a different perspective, could this near collision have been avoided if either car had slowed down? Could this have been avoided if either car had given way and slowed down? Live and let live, a little patience goes a long way. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  16. TLDR; blur Chevrolet Cruze driver collides into Fiat Fiorino while recklessly swerving on the road. Watch the video for yourself below 293477688_565477225239846_1824659754857884933_n.mp4 The Chevrolet Cruze driver was caught on camera swerving into a Fiat Fiorino at 0.02 of the video. It looked like the driver was attempting to lane change but did not take note of the car beside him on the bend. Either that or the driver was simply unfocused or falling asleep at the wheel. Either way, it almost seemed like the driver was not focused on the road at all. Hopefully, the Fiat Fiorino was not damaged too badly. Netizen Comments Netizens speculate the cause of this reckless behaviour. Some suggest that the Chevrolet Cruze driver could have been using his mobile phone whilst driving and therefore was unable to focus on driving. Others claim that he might have been falling asleep on the road while the more understanding ones suggest that he could have been experiencing health issues that impacted his driving skills. Personally, I think that drivers who engage in reckless driving of this severity should get their license revoked for the sake of road safety. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  17. A Mercedes-Benz C180 was caught swerving abruptly between lanes from Punggol Road all the way to Rivervale Lane. This led to netizen suspicions that the driver was operating the vehicle under the influence. Watch the video for yourself below: 293321461_569060238102925_3729722432454140138_n.mp4 At the end of the video, the driver comes out of the car and stumbles toward the cam car. It’s highly suspected that the driver must be under some kind of influence, this behaviour does not seem like something a sober person would do It’s also ridiculous how he managed to feel entitled enough to be angry at the cam car driver despite him being the one driving recklessly on the road. Some people do deserve to be knocked down a few pegs. But, as always, there's two sides to a coin. It is uncertain as to what happened prior to the start of the video. Maybe the cam car driver antagonised the C180 driver? Netizen Comments Netizens have expressed their suspicions of the Mercedes driver being under the influence, as well as criticizing him for playing the victim I hope this man can receive the proper punishment that he deserves after endangering other lives on the road. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news, and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  18. There are many ways of provoking others on the road. Some common acts of provocation include tailgating, persistent honking, making offensive gestures, and intentionally blocking other road users. Watch how this cam car driver intentionally blocks another car from passing: What Happened? This incident occurred at Irwell Bank Road, in the vicinity of River Valley. The driver of a Ranger Rover Velar was swerving left and right between two lanes and intentionally blocking the cam car from passing. As both cars started nearing the red light, the cam car driver gave two short honks to the Ranger Rover. It is unknown if there was a prior altercation between both parties. From the audio recording of the cam car, it seems that the cam car is a Private Hire Vehicle (PHV) driver with at least two passengers on board. After the two short honks, the male passenger could be heard telling the PHV driver the following: "If you guys want to fight, fight somewhere else, please. Let me get off first, please." After that, the other female passenger echoed similarly, saying: "Ya, let me get off." The PHV driver apologises to both passengers for his behaviour. Subsequently, after the atmosphere in the vehicle settled, both passengers could be heard encouraging the PHV driver to make a police report over this incident. Range Rover Driver Is Not The Only One Who Should Be Reported Did your keen eye catch it? There are four lanes on that road going straight, with the first lane being a "go straight or right turn" lane. If you watched carefully, the Range Rover drove through the cross-junction from lane 3 to 1. The PHV driver did something similar by driving through the cross-junction from lane 2 to lane 1, squeezing a Honda Stream to his right out of the way. And the worst part is that neither the PHV driver nor his passengers realised what he did. Let me know your thoughts on this incident in the comments below! Netizens' Comments I bet cam car didn't realise his self-pwn by uploading his dash cam footage. The amount of sarcasm in the last sentence tho. Testing + warming up new tyres. ========= 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!
  19. TL:DR – A Mercedes GLA brake checks a cam car driver for high beaming him. Cam car driver’s wife then explodes into a 3-minute lecture and telling off while the tunes of Baby Shark drone on repeat in the background. Poor cam car driver cannot catch a break. We’ve all had bad days in our lives. But what this cam car driver just went through, is a winner. Watch this 6min+ video to find out what I mean. The important bits are from the start to about the 3min 20second mark So let’s list down how the cam car driver’s day gets from bad to worst The domino effect starts with the GLA Rear footage from the cam car shows us a black GLA behind cam car that filters to lane 2 on the KPE, accelerates to overtake cam car and abruptly cuts into cam car’s path. This causes the cam car driver to high beam the GLA. Resulting in a short brake check game. The lecture begins For those who don’t understand Mandarin, I’ve summarized the main points for you. The wife’s point of view The husband deserved it Their kid was in the car Singaporeans don’t like to get high beamed Her husband high-beamed intentionally Her husband was driving too slowly (LOL) The GLA gave ample space before cutting into cam car’s lane The husband’s point of view This is a safety issue The GLA did not signal Their kid was in the car. Not signaling and changing lane is dangerous When we list them out like that, the wife starts to make a very compelling argument. Anyone else feel like this exchange between husband and wife is very relatable to couples out there? Baby Shark Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo This song on repeat is torture. It all ends well, don't worry Kudos to the couple though. You could tell they were angry with one another for awhile but they played it cool and kept their tempers in check. #couplegoals Online Chatter Looking at all these comments, the wife was right!

  20. Because there’s nothing more Christmas-sy than getting a surprise visit from the TP. In a video posted on Christmas Day, a reckless Honda Civic driver decided to make his own Fast and Furious sequel on the TPE. With the cam car travelling in the middle lane, the driver caught the white Honda Civic dashing through the (snow) roads on the first lane. The white car swiftly overtook its left silver taxi, squeezing itself just in front of the cam car. The driver then recklessly cut in front of the taxi and sped up, with its left indicator shining strongly in the night. The Honda’s crazy antics led to a few drivers slowing down on the middle lane. Surprisingly, the taxi didn’t waver once throughout the whole ordeal. Speeding and overtaking on the left? All jokes aside, the way this Honda Civic driver drove on the expressway is perilous and reckless. In Singapore, the speed limit for expressways and tunnels ranges from 80 to 90 km/h. Judging from the video, it looks like the Civic was doing more than the limit. Drivers who exceed the speed limit by 40km/h or less will be issued a fine ranging from $130 to $170 and up to 8 demerit points. On the other hand, drivers who exceed the speed limit by more than 40 km/h will have to be prosecuted in court. They will also be issued up to 24 demerit points. While overtaking on the left is not illegal, it is not recommended unless a road hog blocks the rightmost lane. Even so, overtaking on the left requires the middle and left lanes to be mostly unoccupied. Switching lanes and slotting yourself in spaces between two lanes is unsafe and could result in an accident if other drivers are not alert enough.

  21. Whoever taught this driver how to drive, what do you have to say now? 😥 There is definitely no way that this is being taught at driving schools. The video starts with a camcar driving along a junction at Geylang Road in the second lane. Intending to go straight after the junction, the driver slowly continues when all of a sudden, a grey car pops out and attempts a right turn. TBH the way he just slides across the junction kind of reminds me of this: A playback of the video shows that the grey vehicle is traveling along the fourth lane of the road. Upon reaching the junction, the driver realizes that he didn't form up properly to make a right turn. Not wanting to miss his turn, he slides across four lanes to make a reckless right turn right in front of our camcar driver. Luckily for him, the camcar quickly notices the vehicle's intentions and slows down. The video ends with a statement from the camcar driver, berating the other driver's selfish actions. Honestly, what is the driver thinking by sliding across so many lanes in such a short amount of time? Is it worth being so reckless and endangering the safety of others just to make a turn? Netizens' reactions Exactly! Missing a right turn is not the end of the world and yet, this driver is willing to risk it all just to have his own way. 🙄 Legit everything goes.. 🙄 If I were the camcar driver, I would be calling and reporting this to the TP the second it happened. However, as I was viewing the footage, I realise that it is fairly difficult to identify the license plate of the grey car, no matter how slowly the video was played back. Hopefully, the camcar driver is able to get a better look and bring this reckless driver to justice! ---------------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

  22. I'm sure we all have done it before - charging through an empty street and speeding up even as the light turns red. Seems pretty harmless, especially when it's late at night and the whole street is quiet and empty, right? Well, I've written this article about a driver who beat the red light and ended up running over a food delivery rider who was waiting for the red light. While I can understand why drivers tend to beat the red light when the street is empty, I don't really get why drivers think they can do the same when there is clearly traffic and pedestrians crossing the junction. What exactly goes through a driver's mind when they attempt to beat the red light at busy areas? 🤨 Do they really think they could do it without any severe consequences?
  23. What do you do when you are rushing for time (for whatever reason), and the odds are stacked against you? Watch how this Honda Shuttle "skips" a red light by taking a shortcut: What happened? This incident took place along Corporation Road, at the junction of Yung Sheng Road. In the dashcam footage, a red Honda Shuttle is seen driving aggressively behind the cam car. Moments later, as the Honda Shuttle approaches the red traffic light, he slows down abruptly. And just when you think he is about to come to a complete stop... He decides to swerve to the nearby filter lane, perform an illegal U-Turn, and go to another filter lane to "skip" that red light (Intelligence +10). Thinking out of the box Undoubtedly, this driver possesses quick thinking and decisive skills, which are used for the wrong reasons. Like the one featured in the video, such manoeuvres should not be performed as they are purely reckless and hazardous to other road users. Exploiting a loophole? According to Chapter 276, Section 112 Part IV No. 54 of the Road Traffic Act, crossing a single continuous white line is allowed only when the road ahead is clear. Don't be mistaken, this is no loophole. What the driver doesn't realise is the fact that he did not obey traffic directions as indicated. Although it is uncertain how many offences he committed, I am pretty sure he has committed at least 1 offence from the "skip traffic light" Jutsu. Netizens' comments Yup, from the looks of it I am sure this is not his first time. Someone forgot about the 9th SAF core value - "Don't get caught" Judging by the way he drives, the sai sure at custom already. Well, what do you think of his actions? And what offence do you think he committed? --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

  24. 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.

  25. The spotlight is on an Isuzu truck driver who has been called out for reckless driving and causing multiple accidents in just ONE MONTH! Incident 1 The first incident occurred on June 2, where the truck attempted to overtake another tipper truck on the TPE. In the first half of the video, you'll notice the truck following the second truck in the middle lane of the expressway. After half a minute, the truck driver gets impatient and dangerously shifts to Lane 1 to overtake the tipper truck that was impeding his path. The second tipper truck swerves slightly to its left and almost collides with a third truck travelling on the left-most lane. The Isuzu truck had already exceeded the speed limit of 60 km/h. Incident 2 The second incident occurred on July 31 at Changi Village Road. A cyclist was cycling on the left side of the road when the truck dangerously passed by him, squeezing him off the road. Luckily, the cyclist managed to end up on the curb instead of underneath the truck. The truck failed to adhere to the 1.5m spacing between vehicles and cyclists. Thankfully, the cyclist managed to sustain minor superficial injuries and was sent to the hospital for treatment immediately. The impact damaged the bicycle as well. Netizens’ reactions TBH, there should be stricter rules surrounding the use of heavy vehicles on the road. --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.
