  1. Prayers to the motorcyclist's family. What happened? A Honda Jazz cut off and side swiped a motorcyclist at Yishun Avenue 1 on 23 July 2023, around 9.30 A.M. This sent the motorcyclist off his bike and knocked his helmet off as well, leaving his head unprotected as he crashed onto the tarmac. The motorcyclist laid still on the ground, and another rider who went past the motorcyclist as the incident took place, but stopped and went over to check on the victim. The person who provided the footage claimed to have returned to the scene and reported to the police after dropping off their wife, who called the ambulance. It is unknown if the Honda Jazz had motive or if it was simply reckless driving. Online Chatter Some facebook users who claimed to be the victim’s father-in-law and cousin have commented under the post saying that he is in a comatose state in the ICU. Others sent well wishes for the victim’s recovery, and called for the driver to face justice and dealt with severely. ========= 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. Sometimes we encounter mind-boggling sights on the road that leave us scratching our heads. What happened and how did it get there? Recently we spotted yet another such scene circulating on one of our favourite pages: The page had captioned it "You can't park there, Sir." You can watch the video here: 298360005_784581842681174_4396976411540370995_n.mp4 Huh? What the! How can? Immediately, we thought that the car had deliberately parked itself there in the middle of the road. Mystified, we did some sleuthing and re-watched the video, as well as digging through the comment section. Aha! Actually, contrary to the caption, the car was not been parked on the road as an act of obstinate rule-flouting, but had most possibly gotten into an unfortunate collision with a heavy vehicle ahead. We have edited the picture for the readers' better viewing clarity. The said heavy vehicle was spotted ahead, parked on the road shoulder: Furore descends. Many netizens protested at the arguably misleading caption of the page, pointing out the BMW's damages and the presence of the heavy vehicle at the road shoulder. Two commentators were engaged in discussion, regarding the actualities of the sight. Some had already assumed it as their immediate and final stance, that 'Yes, it was definitely an accident!' There was also an overwhelming barrage of netizens pointing out the seemingly obvious: Yet another wave, some expressing exasperation with the caption's assumption: Oh dear... Alright guys, I think we can also see for ourselves. Further explanations Other than the netizens who were not so pleased with the choice of words, there were those who jumped in to account for the context of the caption: As well as this "Oh, I see!" moment: Well, to be very fair, not everyone watches TikTok so not everyone will get the reference, so captions like these can lead to slight misunderstandings. Although, it is also not very ideal to use such a flippant caption when someone was just involved in an accident, with damages incurred and repair fees to pay for. Discretion is important! When reading and viewing content on the internet, its always good to do some further research and scrutiny so that we get the full picture. Just as well, it wouldn't hurt to brush up on our pop culture references. ========= 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. In the early hours yesterday morning, right when many of us would have been waking up and getting ready to go to work, those on the Kranji Expressway were thrown into a panic when this accident occurred: How did it happen? The scenario went like this: the motorcyclist was just going straight ahead. At the far left, some other cars were shifting lanes, moving to the right: Disaster strikes. Unfortunately, the Kia Niro (immediate closest) to the motorcyclist made a rash and foolish decision--- to swerve abruptly. This gave the motorcyclist about approximately a second to react, which wasn't enough, of course. Cue the imminent collision. It didn't stop there, as the force of the sideswipe was strong enough to propel the motorcyclist into the flank of another car ahead; its second collision. The tumble onto the hard tar road was inevitable: Oh my god! Our hearts dropped when seeing this. Thankfully, help arrives. Upon seeing the accident that had just occurred, Good Samaritans also on the road slowed down, or stopped their vehicles to offer assistance. The motorcyclists had slowed down to help a brother in need. The one closest to the fallen rider was also seen trying to lift the heavy motorcycle off of him. Divided opinions. There was an outpour of differing opinions online. Some commentators deduced that the cars were ultimately at fault. Some shared the same sentiment, but with a slightly different take: But it was agreed that the sudden lane change far left had caused the crashes. Yes, we think so too. There were also some less-than-helpful comments, bordering on nasty: Including this Come on man. Was not the biker's fault that he got into an accident. Not cool. Hasty driving has consequences. It is hard to pinpoint and assign fault exactly, but we can say that the abrupt lane change definitely was the direct cause of the motorcyclist collision happening. It is depressing and unfortunate to see the spate of motorcycle accidents as of late, especially the recent Simei lorry incident that sadly claimed the life of another motorcyclist (Rest in peace). We urge all our readers to always stay vigilant and safe on the roads, and we hope this motorcyclist gets better soon. ========= 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. "It was my car, my friend drove. All I can say he panicked when the bike cut, and the lorry got close. RIP my car." The above was the background information provided along with the following user-submitted video: IMG_7234.MP4 What Happened? It was just another day travelling on the road until the black car in the video turned on its left signal indicator. Moments after signalling, the car veers to the right and sideswipes against the concrete barrier to the right. When panic set in, the driver immediately swerved to the left without checking for traffic. As a result, the black car unintentionally performs a pit manoeuvre on a passing Toyota Harrier. The SUV immediately lost control and collided head-first into the same concrete barrier that the black car sideswiped earlier. Meanwhile, the black car crashed head-first into the concrete barrier similar to the Harrier. According to the user that submitted the video, the blunder caused by his friend was due to vehicles that passed by him too closely. Hmmm...seems like a convenient excuse, doesn't it? And even if it is, isn't his friend's reaction a tad too slow? As the local saying goes, "if you can't swim, don't say your swimming trunks are too big". Likewise, if you can't drive, then don't - Drivers like that are better off taking public transport for the sake of other motorists. Netizens' Comments LOL the driver's brain need to buffer? Haiz....playing the blame game. Not sure who the car owner and driver trying to smoke🤨 ========= 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. Have you seen the new Hyundai Palisade on our roads? It is normal if you haven't seen this monster of an SUV powered by a 3.5L V6 engine, pushing out a total of 374 BHP and 336Nm of torque. It is very rare to spot a Palisade cruising around. It is so rare that this taxi driver decides to leave his mark on the Palisade. Watch it here: What Happened? The accident occurred at Halus Link Junction towards Punggol. A Silvercab taxi and Hyundai Palisade travelled alongside as they approached a 2-lane filter lane. As they negotiated the gradual left turn, the Silvercab abruptly cuts into the lane of the Hyundai Palisade. The taxi driver's inability to keep within his lane while turning and his ignorance of not checking for surrounding traffic resulted in him sideswiping the Hyundai SUV. Despite being a larger vehicle, the massive 8-seater SUV was forced out of the lane, causing it to cut across the solid double white lines. It was fortunate that no oncoming traffic was present at that point in time. Thoughts TBH, it seems like a norm for taxi drivers to drive however they like. More often than not, it seems pretty common for taxi drivers to take up 2-lanes, drive recklessly or cut other drivers off in an abrupt manner. But now that I think of it, doesn't that describe Singapore drivers in general? Netizens' Comments Exactly how I feel. NGL, that is straight-up facts 💯 I wondered what substance he was high on for him to leave a comment like this. And then I saw his profile picture.

  6. Scenario goes like this: I was stuck behind a line of cars in Lane 1 turning right so I decided to filter to Lane 2. Waited a while for some cars to pass, finally all-clear. I had entered the lane about half-way when this Nissan Note collided into my front left. I dunno whether it's evident in the video but he was filtering from Lane 3 to Lane 2. We stopped by the side and exchanged particulars and since I was in a rush to fetch my family from airport, we left the scene shortly. I did tell him that this is a 50-50 liability accident as both of us were filtering into the middle lane, so we should just both settle our own damages. https://youtu.be/P6gZbveV6Hs Subsequently, he messaged me to tell me that he's going to report the accident and claim my insurance. 50-50 accident can claim the other party's insurance? He feels that I'm totally at fault for this accident. When he makes the accident report, will the person advise him that this is likely a 50-50 scenario and thus, he should pay out of pocket for his damage? His car was quite badly damaged (dents, scratches from front driver door to rear) whereas mine can probably be settled with a polishing session. Sincerely seeking forumers' advice on whether you feel the fault lies with either party and experience in whether his claim against my insurance can be valid. This is my first at-fault accident over 13 years of driving, so not quite sure how an opposing claim on my own insurance will be handled. If he does claim successfully, I'll feel extremely aggrieved as it's clearly a case of 2 cars entering the same lane (50-50% liability according to BOLA) and risk losing my 50+5% NCD over this. P.S. My damage vs his really showed the difference between a Conti and Jap car in the event of a collision.
  7. greetings to all, i was involved in an accident involving a car that was about to merge into PIE and a lorry along PIE(changi) aft sims exit. i was on the most left lane when a lorry overtook closely resulting it to sideswiped me and cause me to hit the merging car. All the people involved are medically fine thank god but the problem arise during claiming. im aware that sideswipe cases are kinda complicated to solve unless proven with video evident thus this is the reason i post this thread if any one of our fellow members happens to have any video or knows anyone with one thank you for you time reading
