  1. https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/speedster-jailed-after-s-pore-police-tapped-data-from-in-car-system-in-first-case-here before erp 2.0 gps tracking mata also can catch you well done 👍
  2. In any other country, this may not be a shocking sight. But this is Singapore, so it IS a shocking sight. Watch the video to see why! What happened? A camcar travelling along Kallang Road to Sim avenue was very impressed to see a family of 4 travelling on an e-bike at 60km/h. The mother was calmly leaning back as she took a call, the two children sitting there and the father expertly keeping the bike balanced. Never rode an e-bike before so riders, comment down below how difficult this would be! Behind the camera, someone can be heard saying “Steady Lah... Vietnam style!” For context, entire families taking a singular bike for transport is common in our neighbouring countries, such as Vietnam. Here’s one from India. And here’s another from Indonesia. Usually, this happens when the families are unable to afford a car, and so can only depend on bikes as public transport may not be considered safe or reliable enough. With how COE prices are going, we can all be grateful that our public transport is among the best in the world. Online chatter Quite a few thought the video was in Vietnam until the Singlish commentary started. Others were angry as there seemed to be no action taken by the authorities to prevent such dangerous behaviour on our roads, especially since they are going well over the 25km/h speed limit set for e-bikes. ========= 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. If PMD can travel at 80km/h, why is my grab order so slow to travel? What happened? The footage shows the PMDs going much faster than the camcar while Chinese music blares in the background. While the MCE is fairly empty at the time of recording, it does not change the fact that using a PMD on the expressway is illegal and unsafe in the event of an accident. If caught, first-time offenders face a fine of up to S$2,000 or up to three months in jail, or both. Repeat offenders face a fine up to S$5,000 or up to six months behind bars, or both. With road users in cars and motorcycles needing to pay road tax, COE and other fees to be allowed to use their vehicles on the road, it's no surprise that incidents sich as this frustrate them, especially with how few of them go unpunished. Online chatter Some wondered if LTA had working hours, as in this incident they were nowhere to be seen. Others just complained about how such cases are now commonplace, despite the danger they represent to other road users. ========= 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. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2023/jun/06/finnish-businessman-hit-with-121000-speeding-fine I like this system... I remember theres this saying any offence where the punishment is a fine is only a punishment for the poor... scaling to income should become SOP
  5. Another day, another PAB/PMD story. Why is it always the younger people using these? What happened? At 1.32 A.M, a PMD and PAB (Power Assisted Bicycle) were spotted going over 60km/h on Jalan Eunos. The PMD is initially in the lead but that changes at 0:34 in the video, when the PAB surges past the PMD like a turbo kicked in. Impressively, it looks like this was all while the PAB rider was using one hand to keep the bike steady as he held a flashing traffic wand in his left hand (our aforementioned lightsaber). His passenger held a flashing traffic wand in his right hand as well in order to keep things perfectly balanced, as all things should be. So? As cool as this may be, it doesn’t change the fact that the riders were breaking the law and endangering themselves, as well as other motorists. People caught up on this too. Others asked what would the LTA and traffic police do to stop this from happening. ========= 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. PMDs may be somewhat affordable, but if you're not careful they can cost you your life. Like these guys may find out soon enough. What happened? A camcar was travelling on East Coast Parkway (ECP) at 2am in the morning yesterday when it cam across a gang of PMD riders speeding on the expressway. There was at first only one rider in view on the cam car’s left before a second zoomed past into the footage. A third soon zoomed from the camcar’s right. Speeding in a PMD on an expressway is two crimes in one as a PMD is not authorised for use on roads. The punishments for which are being fined up to $2,000 and/or jail time of up to 3 months. Online chatter. Plenty of people were criticising the PMD drivers, but they also criticised the government for not catching these riders as they endanger others as well. While dark, others told traffic police to get blue tents ready for the riders. As someone with a dark sense of humour I laughed. ========= 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 - The front wheels of the BMW emits white smoke as the driver continues to speed on the expressway, not cutting any slack for the car. Watch this 34-second video of the 428 looking like an ultimate driving machine. What happened? The driver continues to speed on the road despite the front wheels busting in smoke. A smoking hot ride for this BMW. An online netizen happened to see this incident in real life and said the BMW also gave off sparks. Not sure about you but that sounds extremely dangerous to me. The car seems to be on the verge of catching fire and it doesn’t help that BMW is also notorious for such recalls in the past. If you see someone driving a BMW, stay away! Online Chatter When your girlfriend says “I’m home alone” so you rush off with a flat tire as you should. Takeaway The Land Transport Authority (LTA) in Singapore mandates that tires be replaced when the tread depth reaches 1.6mm. Even if your tires have enough tread, after 5–10 years of use, the rubber may start to crack. Therefore, it is important to examine your tires once a year. ========= 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. One fine and bright sunny Sunday morning, I was heading north as usual for my hobby routine. The roads were usually clear this early in the morning. My right foot feels a bit heavier than usual. The engine wants its horses to be released after a work week of low revs. After passing the two overhead bridge on CTE, the usual candid camera spots, I was going up the flyover on Bradellel. Decided to let the horses out for that momentary stamp on the accelerator hard. On the way down the flyover, forgot to release the accelerator as the pull from the engine was too mesmerising. Within a couple of seconds, a motorbike with flashing blue and red lights was at my side and waved me to stop. I had to adhere to his command and did so. We pulled to the side of the road and he parked behind me. He walked over and asked me to get out of the car and produce my NRIC and driving license. I knew I was caught speeding but I did not know how fast I was caught for. I thought, at most 120km/h. I do not look at the speedometer and drive, I was looking at the road trying to concentrate and look out for other road users as my car cut through the air. While he was radioing back his HQ to check the status of my NRIC and driving license, his accomplice arrived. Immediately, his accomplice asked me how fast I was going. I said I don’t know as I was concentrating driving on the expressway as what any good driver should. He showed me his speed camera display and it showed 143km/h. Goodness me, I was shocked too. He did a mental calculation, then told me I am lucky. Any higher and my license will be revoked. He asked for a reason for going that fast. I said I had no excuse, I was not rushing to anywhere. I plead for him to report a lower speed, but he refused. After checking my records are clean, they told me to leave and expect a summon letter within two weeks. And told me to drive carefully!!! Very chop chop, the stop lasted less than 10mins. Looking backing into my in-car video camera, I did clock 143km/h on the downslope of the flyover. I should have released the accelerator after the upslope. They were stationed between the entrance of Bradellel and exit of AMK Ave 1 on the CTE northbound. Just outside of SMRT depot. That is a busy place, cant believe they had stationed there as I have never encounter them there. One holding the speed camera, another standby at the side of his motorbike. Within two weeks, I really received a registered mail from postman. And I was formerly charged by traffic police for speeding at 143km/h over 90km/h speed limit. There was no composition fine to settle the offence. And at the bottom of the letter I was told to appear in court on a specific date and time. This time, really jia lat liao. Quickly went online to search for forums on what to do. There really isn’t much, the only close reference was in Singapore Bike Forum dated 2010. The fine was $800 to $1,000 with suspension of license from 3 months to 6 months. I asked around my friends, none of them ever encounter such high speeding cases. One friend told me his another friend’s wife kena $1,000 fine and 3 months suspension. Frankly, I am not worried about the fine. I am more worried of the suspension. I need my car for weekend travelling for my hobby. Day to day, I can rely on public transport but for my hobby, which I had advanced into larger scale models, I require a transport. So I decided to look for my MP to appeal to the court for not suspending my license. I am willing to pay the fine and have 18 points deducted as a punishment of my driving. It was a Monday evening when I met my MP, who happens to be the transport minister too(now no more liao), Mr Lui Tuck Yew. The wait was long, about one hour. Then I was met with one of the many volunteers who would write a summary of my request to Mr Lui. He was shocked at the speed I was driving too and he told me that they will not be able to interfere with court proceedings. Only thing they can do is write to traffic police to appeal. I asked how about a personal letter from Mr Lui to the judge which I will hand carry to court. He told me to ask Mr Lui later when I meet him. It was another 30mins before I am allowed to meet my MP. Upon entering the room, Mr Lui stood up, greeted me, extended his hand to shake mine. He listened to my request and politely told me that he is unable to interfere with court proceedings and is unable to write me a personal letter to the judge. He told me he will write to traffic police and try to appeal my case as I have existing medical conditions that having a car would ease my convenience. After that, he told me to take care and drive carefully!!! Prior to seeing Mr Lui, I had already prepared letters from my various specialist stating my medical condition which does not allow me prolong standing. True to his words, Mr Lui indeed wrote to traffic police and appeal my case. I received a letter from traffic police that they will review my case. However, the following week, received a letter back from traffic police that my appeal was unsuccessful and a new court date is set for my case. From here, I knew suspension of my driving license was for sure, but for how long, that will depend on the mood of the judge.
  9. TL;DR - No way home for this driver as s/he fled the scene after crashing the SUV onto a traffic light and a concrete barrier. No money, lots of problems. Too much money, more problems. Watch this 38-second video of the Porsche Macan going from a high performance car to a useless one. What happened? The car collided into a temporary traffic light and a concrete barrier at Ophir Road after Beach Road. It was told that the driver had escaped from the Macan, most likely drunk since the accident occurred at 4AM. I have a question... What can one be doing at 4AM on a Wednesday? Online Chatter Rumours have it that the driver fled back to his strawberry farm. Ooof. Just some rich man problems that commoners cannot relate to. And won’t want to anyway. Takeaway Though it is only allegations that this accident happened from drink driving, it is also important to reiterate that alcohol is a make-you-stupid drug. If there's one thing worse than being driven to drink, and that's driving yourself home from it. ========= 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. TL;DR - A horrifying accident involving 14 cars occurred along Bartley Viaduct just two days after Christmas. If you happened to drive along the Bartley Viaduct on 27th Dec, you would have witnessed a rare (not to mention expensive for those involved) occurrence. It's not every day you get to see 14 cars collided into one another in a straight line. There's even a bird's eye view of the incident! Watch this 56-second video to see how it looks. What happened? A chain reaction collision involving 14 cars occurred, leading to a long pile-up on the rightmost lane of Bartley Viaduct. We spotted a few familiar models in the carnage. Honda Fit Honda Vezel Toyota Prius Alpha Toyota Altis Toyota Vios All the cars seemed to have suffered some form of structural damage, especially the ones sandwiched in the middle. For all drivers who do their daily commute via the Bartley Viaduct, take note of this stretch of road. There are no speed cameras there and a perfect spot for cars to speed and/or tailgate. So, who pays for the damages incurred? The rule of thumb is that the first driver who caused the first collision that led to all subsequent crashes is the party at fault. While tailgating might not be an illegal offence in Singapore, insurers might not look lightly at your claims if you met an accident due to tailgating a vehicle ahead of you. Source: Budget Direct Singapore To identify the liable party in a chain reaction accident, it is important to reconstruct how the accident happened - Whoever’s actions caused the initial accident will be the responsible driver. There are even some cases where multiple drivers may be responsible. Which is why presenting quality footage to your insurers could potentially absolve you of any blame. Check out Sgcarmart's best car cameras for 2023! Online Hoo-ha: Good luck to the last of the 14 cars. For any inexperienced drivers, you should have learnt this during your Basic Theory. A motorist should stay at least 2 car lengths or 2 seconds behind any vehicle in front of them. ========= 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. 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.

  12. TL;DR = A Nissan NV200 speeds on the wet road, loses control, hits the side railings and overturns on the CTE The speed limit for goods vehicles on expressways is 70km/h. There’s no way that this van was adhering to said speed limit. Watch the minute-and-a-half-long video to see what I mean: What happened At about 0.02, you can see that the van swerves to avoid a car in front of it. Doing so sends the van out of control on the wet road (it’s raining, by the way). It then proceeds to hit the side railings before overturning dramatically on the CTE. A recipe for disaster I have no idea what the driver was thinking. It was raining, and the ground was wet. Visibility could not have been that great. The speed limit for goods vehicles is 70km/h. All the conditions listed above perfectly line up; just waiting for an accident to happen. And true enough, it did! Online Chatter This commenter has a point. Most comments feel that the van driver deserved this. There were some sparks when the van overturned though. Ya lor. ========= 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. 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!
  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. Social media is a double-edged sword. Despite the benefits and connectivity it brings, social media can cause harm to you as well. Watch this video to find out how: IMG_7241.MP4 What Happened? All it took was for a Volkswagen driver to upload this 8-second video to screw himself over. The Volkswagen driver was filmed by his passenger speeding down an unnamed expressway in Singapore at above 200km/h before hitting a top speed of 219km/h. "This is my type of therapeutic" and "will prefer to be passenger tho" were used as in-text captions of the video. Considering the maximum speed limit is 90km/h on an expressway, the Volkswagen driver would have exceeded the speed limit by 129km/h. Even though it seemed like he wasn't caught for excessive speeding initially, the 8-second video posted on the driver's social media account will probably get him into trouble with the traffic police. For exceeding the speed limit of above 60km/h, the offender will be awarded 24 demerit points. If he is a new or probationary driver (highly unlikely that he is), his driving licence will be revoked. However, if he is a non-probationary driver with no prior suspension records, his driving licence will be liable for suspension for up to 12 weeks. Or suppose he is a non-probationary driver that was previously suspended before. In that case, his driving licence will be liable for suspension for up to 36 months, depending on how many times he was previously suspended. Was he driving a Volkswagen? Yes, the car in the video is certainly a Volkswagen. The main giveaway was the layout and appearance of the car's dashboard. And yes, that includes the iconic Volkswagen's check engine light, which ascertains that the said car is a Volkswagen. A sharp-eyed netizen went a step further to identify the model of the Volkswagen - the Scirocco R, by simply looking at the car's rear-view mirror. NGL, that's pretty impressive. Netizens' Comments Impressive CSI skills! Absolutely agree.

  16. SG road vigilante hated by so many car owners but their cbness is on another level 👀 This wrx was one of those that changed their sgcarmart listing to 488 after the AE86 went viral See who got the last laugh now https://www.channelnewsasia.com/singapore/5-people-arrested-after-viral-video-dangerous-driving-along-cte-2552116 SINGAPORE: Five men suspected to be drivers involved in a recent episode of late night dangerous driving along the Central Expressway (CTE) were arrested on Wednesday (Mar 9) by police in an islandwide operation. In a widely circulated video captured by a motorist’s helmet camera video, a convoy of vehicles was seen hurtling down the CTE during the wee hours of Feb 27. Acting on the video footage, the Traffic Police conducted investigations and established the identities of the drivers. They conducted a raid on the persons involved in the early hours of Wednesday morning, with operations continuing well into the day. During the operation, nine vehicles were seized for further investigations. The men arrested were aged between 22 and 33. As part of the raid, the Singapore Police Force (SPF) allowed reporters to observe the towing of the drivers’ vehicles and the arresting of the suspected drivers. At about 7.30am at a multi-storey car park in Punggol, a red Subaru Impreza WRX that looked similar to one of the vehicles in the video was towed after officers conducted checks.
  17. 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.

  18. This video is, as the kids say, very 'happening'. For those confused with what had just happened in the video, let me unpack it for you. We start with the camcar (the Volkswagen Roc driver) driving down Yio Chu Kang road. As the black car in front of him starts to speed, the camcar driver revs his engine and chases his 'friend' in a silly speeding game. As both cars speed down the lane, the drivers try their best to avoid crashing into other vehicles. However, to the camcar's dismay, he crashes into a grey car after entering a bend. Luckily for his 'friend', he manages to squeeze past the car before it changes lanes and avoids a collision. The video ends with several pictures of the blue Volkswagen Scirocco after the crash. Who is at fault here? As evident from the footage of the accident, it is safe to say that the Volkswagen Roc is at fault here. After all, it is common knowledge that street racing is illegal in Singapore. According to the Road Traffic Act, individuals found guilty of street racing will face a punishment of a hefty fine, mandatory imprisonment and forfeiture of the vehicle involved. Following the Tanjong Pagar incident earlier this year, the authorities have introduced a series of amendments to the Road Traffic Act. This includes higher fines and longer jail times for individuals found guilty of street racing in Singapore. First-time offenders will face a maximum fine of $5,000 and up to a year in jail. Repeat offenders will be fined up to $10,000 and jailed for up to two years. Netizens' reactions While I'm not an expert at car insurance, I highly doubt that the insurance company would be willing to pay the Roc driver after they find out about his little game of cat and mouse with his 'friend'. Yep, and they look like this: I thought the video was shot from a third person's perspective as well, it took me a while to realise that it was the Volkswagen driver's POV. 😓 -------------------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

  20. Local celebrity Gurmit Singh was fined S$800 and banned from driving for three months for speeding on Tuesday (Jun 8). The 56-year-old actor and presenter, best known for his sitcom character Phua Chu Kang, pleaded guilty to one count under the Road Traffic Act for exceeding the speed limit while driving a vehicle. He drove at a speed of 131kmh at about 9.30pm on Apr 12 this year along Woodlands Avenue 12 towards Seletar Expressway, on a road where the limit was 70kmh, the court heard. The prosecutor sought a driving ban and left the sentence to the court. She said Singh has no prior convictions. Singh told the court that he was driving to fetch his son from the workplace he was interning at when he noticed a "flapping sound". "After I got him I wanted him to hear the same sound, so I realised it comes out at 100kmh," he said. "Of course I'm not saying I should drive at that speed at that street, but it was just a short (distance). I don't know how I got 131, I wish I knew, but I just ask the court's understanding that I'm not this reckless driver who does this daily. It's just a one-off thing I wanted my son to hear." District Judge Salina Ishak told him he could have put his son's life in danger, as well as his own. "I understand, your honour. I regret doing what I did," said Singh. Singh recently reprised his role as contractor Phua Chu Kang for a song in support of COVID-19 vaccines. The penalties for speeding for a first-time offender are a jail term of up to three months, a fine of up to S$1,000, or both. This is doubled for repeat offenders. Drivers who are convicted of speeding can be banned from driving for whatever period the court deems fit. Singh, who was named as Gurmit Singh Virk Chainchal Singh, was unrepresented and turned up in a grey long-sleeved shirt and pants.
  21. A BMW M5 was caught speeding recklessly and beating the red light along Still Road on Wednesday (June 9) night. The 39-second clip shows multiple views of the speeding vehicle from a camcar that was at the traffic junction. According to the Road Traffic Act, drivers caught speeding will be awarded demerit points and a composition fine. After watching the video, there is no doubt that the BMW had exceeded the speed limit. Drivers who are caught exceeding the speed limit by more than 40km/h would receive 12 to 24 demerit points, along with a mandatory prosecution in court. Additionally, beating the red light will incur a fine of up to $400 and another 12 demerit points. With the recent news of actor Gurmit Singh receiving an $800 fine for speeding, I had expected Singaporeans to be more mindful and to avoid speeding on empty roads. Netizens' reactions Honestly, the few minutes that you save on your trip is not worth the consequences that come along with it. Be it an exorbitant fine or a potentially fatal car accident, you would have wished that you didn’t speed in the first place.
  22. Photo: Try Sutrisno Foo On Tuesday, local celebrity Gurmit Singh was fined S$800 and prohibited from driving for three months for speeding (Jun 8). The 56-year-old actor and broadcaster, best known for his sitcom character Phua Chu Kang and recently the super annoying tv endorsement that I am still able to remember inside my head. Mr Singh pleaded guilty to one count of exceeding the speed limit while operating a vehicle under the Road Traffic Act. The court heard that he drove at a speed of 131kmh along Woodlands Avenue 12 towards Seletar Expressway at around 9.30pm on April 12 this year, on a road where the speed limit was 70kmh. Gurmit Singh Virk Chainchal Singh, also known as Gurmit Singh Virk Chainchal Singh, arrived unrepresented and dressed in a grey long-sleeved shirt and jeans. The prosecutor requested a driving prohibition and left the sentencing to the court. Singh, according to her, has no prior convictions. Singh testified in court that he was travelling to pick up his son from his internship when he heard a "flapping sound." And just in case you guys dunno what is flapping sound, I found you guys a sound clip. District Judge Salina Ishak told him he could have put his son's life in danger, as well as his own. "I understand, your honour. I regret doing what I did," said Singh. Singh recently reprised his role as contractor Phua Chu Kang for a song in support of COVID-19 vaccines. The penalties for speeding for a first-time offender are a jail term of up to three months, a fine of up to S$1,000, or both. This is doubled for repeat offenders. Drivers who are convicted of speeding can be banned from driving for whatever period the court deems fit. Guys, watch your speed while you are driving.
  23. Hello! Today we have two Mercedes-Benzes (E63 & A200) engaging in what looks like a dangerous game of tag at Simei Road. That's TOO FAST to be safe driving. Imagine if the first car jams its brakes, the second car is screwed seven ways till Sunday. This video even managed to stir up my anxiety - I felt like I was the one being chased. It's not clear whether the two drivers know each other. Perhaps they're rushing to get to Jewel for their Beauty in a Pot reservation? It is near Simei after all. Or is it a case of road rage? Hmm questions, questions. Netizens have lots to say. Some of the comments savage AF. So, road rage or friends? What do you think?
