  1. TL,DR - BMW driver tries to be a cheapskate and has skill issue, ends up needing to pay more than just parking fees Guys… I’m running out of things to say for situations like these. Especially when certain vehicles are involved. What happened? A BMW 318 driver in Boon Lay Place decided to skip paying parking fees and that it’d be a good idea to pay for insurance claims instead. This is shown from how close they were tailgating the camcar. I have not driven in a while, but I am very sure that’s not a “safe distance”. I was promptly proven right because the BMW driver did not stop in time when the camcar stopped to enter the road. This led to an audible knock against the camcar’s rear bumper. The owner of the camcar got out in order to confront the BMW driver, though the audio of their conversation was too soft to hear in the video. According to the Facebook post, the BMW driver claimed that the camcar driver was busy using his HP and other “lame rubbish”, forcing the BMW driver to reverse. In the original Facebook post, the camcar was quoted as saying “Tailgate also no standard bang people rear.” I like how this implies the camcar also tailgates others but is much better at it than the BMW driver. Online chatter You already know the first thing people are going to make fun of. The next thing people made fun of is how the driver could afford such a car but not the parking fees, especially since now he will have to pay more in the end than just a few dollars. ========= 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. TL;DR - Shame shame as this cheapo Toyota Hiace evades parking fee by tailgating after alighting passengers at Parklane. To be specific, a couple of well-endowed chio-bus’. This Hiace driver in the video seems like a pretty experienced tailgater. Watch this 84-second video clip to see what i mean. What happened? The incident took place at Parklane shopping mall’s car park where the Hiace tried to follow closely (and succeeded) to tailgate the car in front of him, just to avoid paying for parking. The video footag shows that the driver had just dropped a group of skimpily dressed ‘chio-bus’ (not that we can tell from the footage but I’d think so) off, where netizens are assuming they are working at one of the bars/KTV there. Online Chatter Undoubtedly, there has been an increased occurrence of payment evasion offences, with most being committed by tailgating. Is it worth committing an offence just to save a few bucks? Hmm. Cautionary Reminder A motorist who fails to keep a safe distance from the vehicle ahead, and as a result is involved in an accident, may be charged with the offence of Driving Without Due Care or Reasonable Consideration. The first offence carries a fine not exceeding $1,500, an imprisonment term not exceeding six months, or both. Subsequent offences carry higher penalties.

  3. 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.

  4. There are various meanings behind tailgating or "poking" another motorist. In general, it is used to show displeasure towards a motorist who is "road hogging" lane 1 of an expressway and telling him to move to a slower lane, or to "jio" someone to race. Watch this video of an Audi S3 who decided to "poke" and tailgate a Honda Accord Euro R to show his displeasure: What Happened? Two drivers of an Audi S3 and a Honda Accord Euro R got into an online dispute over a misunderstanding. The dispute started when the Audi S3 intended to overtake the Euro R (cam car) from the left, only to be blocked by the Euro R, who switched to the left lane simultaneously, intending to let the Audi S3 pass him. After misunderstanding the Euro R driver's intention, the Audi driver decided to "poke" and tailgate the Honda driver to show his displeasure. However, the Honda driver kept his cool and minded his business, while the Audi driver continued driving aggressively, creating a tense atmosphere between both drivers. Subsequently, after the incident, the Euro R driver took to social media and called out the Audi S3 driver for his behaviour earlier on, which he felt endangered the safety of both drivers, the Euro R driver's kids and other motorists around them. Read it here: Haiz. Incidents like the above give the car community/car enthusiast a bad reputation, whether intentional or not. Netizens' Comments Sad eh. Next time want style up own car also need think twice liao. Good job for that!👏 ========= 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!
  5. Besides PMDs and cyclists, road hoggers on expressways are one of the most annoying motorists you can possibly encounter. But what should you do when you encounter one? Watch what happens to this cam car when he decides to tailgate a road hogging Mercedes: What Happened? Cam car was travelling on lane 1 of the expressway when he encountered a road hogging Mercedes-Benz B180. To signal the Mercedes driver that he was road hogging and should move to a slower lane, the cam car driver decided to tailgate the Mercedes ahead of him. In response, the foolish Mercedes driver performed an abrupt brake check to warn the cam car driver for tailgating him. As a result, the cam car driver acted accordingly and braked abruptly to avoid a collision with the Mercedes. Shortly after, the cam car performs a lane change to the 2nd lane and floors the accelerator to overtake the road hogging Mercedes from its left. TBH, this was what the cam car should have done in the first place. Especially since the road hogging vehicle is a mere B180 which takes 3 working days to get to 100km/h - most cars would overtake it effortlessly, and this incident could be avoided entirely. The Debate It is apparent that this issue was a talking point for many netizens, and many have voiced their opinions on this matter: What are your thoughts on this matter? Netizens' Comments This is the most logical action to take. Dude, how high are you to comment something like this? ========= 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. NGL, road altercations in Singapore is a common affair. However, the extent of these altercations varies from minor ones that diffuse within seconds to major ones that go back and forth, intending to provoke each other. Watch this Honda Civic's persistent provocation towards a motorcyclist: What Happened? A Honda Civic was caught in the act of intentionally provoking a motorcyclist on the PIE. The Honda Civic was seen tailgating closely behind the motorcyclist before abruptly cutting in front of him. The Civic slows down to be alongside the motorcyclist. However, the motorcyclist passes him while making a hand gesture towards the Civic driver. The Last Straw It was at this point that the Honda driver lost it. Once again, he changes lane to tailgate the motorcyclist while flashing his high beam at him. The Honda Civic driver then attempted to 'sandwich' the motorcyclist between itself and a van. In response to the Civic's action, the motorcyclist makes another hand gesture before zooming off. Sadly, the actual audio could not be heard due to the background audio in the user-submitted video. But I am speculating that there was lots of honking involved. What Did The Motorcyclist Do? TBH, I highly doubt the motorcyclist is an innocent party in this altercation. Yes, judging from the video, he may seem innocent. However, there seems to be an encounter between these two that wasn't caught in the dashcam footage. Regardless, the Honda Civic driver was acting like a total d!ck throughout the entire video. (BTW, the lyrics of the background music is a very apt message to the Honda Civic driver) Netizens' Comments With his car plate made known, I hope TP does something about this Civic driver. "Attempted murder" seems a bit far-fetched tho... The above is such an unpopular opinion that bears so much truth. ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook!

  8. The driver of a yellow Honda fit attempted to evade carpark payment but ended up failing and was confronted by the driver of the white Skoda Octavia he was tailgating instead. Here's the video This incident took place at the carpark of Takashimaya. In the video, the yellow Honda Fit tries to evade parking fees by tailgating a white Skoda Octavia. But the driver of the Octavia was having none of it and intentionally blocked the Honda Fit. Leaving it awkwardly stuck under the gantry arm. The Skoda driver then exits his car in agitation while walking towards the Honda Fit to confront the driver. Noteworthy: There is an ongoing promotion for 2 hours of free parking at Ngee Ann City, with no minimum spend. Is it worth committing a parking offence over that few dollars? If guilty of tailgating at an EPS exit gantry to avoid payment, the Honda Fit driver could face a $70 fine. Repeat offenders may be charged in court. Netizens' comments The conclusion seems to be clear-cut 🤐 Undoubtedly, there has been an increased occurrence of payment evasion offences, with these offences being committed by tailgating the front vehicle. Here are some recent cases of payment evasion: Mitsubishi Lancer tailgating camcar out of carpark Hyundai Avante tailgating and got confronted by camcar Toyota Sienta tailgating camcar out of SuperBowl Jurong carpark However, the most unusual occurrence of payment evasion belongs to this purple Volkswagen Scirocco. TBH, I am damn puzzled as to why the driver damaged his Scirocco to evade paying his carpark fees.

  9. 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.
  10. I was at Expo last Wednesday (6/1) and left at 6:20pm. This Camry (attached) tailgate my back at the exit gantry and gotten his free parking. To test if the parking mgt really chap about these act, I wrote to the Expo mgt. Below is the extract of their repy: Thank you for sending us the details of the tailgating incident at Singapore Expo. We regret that we are unable to pursue this with the errant driver as our system needs his IU number to check if he had paid or not paid carpark charges. It is also not in our jurisdiction to pursue charges against this deliberate act. We are glad that this incident did not cause you any harm and we hope this will not deter you from visiting Singapore Expo in the future. So my question is, are those ERP carpark exit signs saying tailgater will be handed over to the police for real?
  11. anyone know where to install off market auto tailgate,like those on BMW or Merc?
  12. Is there anyone out there who can install power/electical tailgate for my Grandis & Harrier ?
  13. Kind of curious, how closely do you follow the car in front on the expressway? EVERYDAY I see people following so closely. EVERY SINGLE day on a crowded expressway during peak hours. I am sure there are some of them here in MCF? The big question I have is WHY WHY? I know this has been discussed previously but I just had an accident on my new car a few weeks back so I thought to raise the awareness again. Driving during peak hour on the ECP. The guy in front of me was braking so I started braking too... then all of a sudden he probably slam his brakes because I see he came to a complete stop really fast. As his brake light was already on, there is no visual cues other than his car coming close really fast of a sudden. So I hit my brakes much harder and I managed to come to a stop. the car B behind me just kissed my bumper. Slight damage... The car C further behind slammed his brakes and avoided hitting car B but I think there was car D and E which all slammed together into car C..... There was injuries on C D E. Car B ask to settle privately as damage was minor..... the point of this story is PLEASE claim these tail gatters as much as you legally can. let this be a deterrent... if you want to follow closely... please pay the price when accidents happen. Because there is no way you can stop in time during an emergency brake.
  14. I just bought a IS250 (year 2010) and boot feels hard to open / close. Feels like a lot of resistance. Wondering if it's like that by design? Anyone tried installing a power / electric tailgate or boot for IS250 before? This will make it much easier for my wife to open/close the boot.
  15. To the black car with the McDonald's decal traveling along above 2 roads on right lane this morning around 8.15 to 8.25.. I am the silver civic in front of u. For your info I was stuck behind a champagne altis that was traveling around 30 to 50 km/h even at stretches when road was fairly clear. With that kind of speed and heavy traffic, and considering I was going to keep to this lane 2 traffic light down, I decide not to overtake on the left. I share your frustration of being stuck. This hogger was an idiot but u are an even bigger idiot for tailgating me and blaring your horn at me twice. I think the 2nd time u choose to stick too close to me and almost hit me when I had to stop due to this slow pok altis suddenly braking and you decided to vent your frustration unaware I am not the hogger. I would have stopped over and asked you what you want if my wife was not into her 1st week of work and cannot be late. You should have realized your stupidity when I subsequently made my u-turn and you can see the altis. Nonetheless screw you for your earlier actions.
  16. Hi all: Currently I see a tailgate light intermittenly light up during driving even though it is lock properly . And when I lock the car sometimes it can be lock but sometimes cannot. Even after I manage to lock successfully the car alarm will sound after some time. May I know what is spoilt? Pls advise
  17. I always see "Do not tailgate" sign along our E-ways.... but where is the "Do not hog the road" sign??? Does that means road hogging is acceptable ??
  18. don speed, don tailgate and hoggers please stay at lane 2
  19. http://www.straitstimes.com/STForum/Online...ory_589313.html Home > ST Forum > Online Story Oct 12, 2010 Do more to prevent tailgating I APPLAUD the Traffic Police for issuing summonses to tailgaters for they are the cause of many accidents ("13,000 tickets for errant driving"; Oct 4). I have on several occasions been tailgated while driving in the right lane of expressways at the maximum speed limit of 90kmh. Even when I accelerate, the drivers would persist in their tailgating. I usually have to give way and move to the left lane as it would be foolhardy to compete with them. My life would be in danger and the lives of other road users as well. Besides, I would be violating the law. I wish we could have anti-tailgating stickers distributed to drivers to promote a safer driving experience on the roads. Soh Swee Kiat can someone write into ST. "Do more to prevent roadhogging" I PLEAD that the Traffic Police will isssue summonses to roadhoggers for they are the cause of many accidents I have on several occasions been roadhogged while trying to overtake in the right lane of expressways. Even when I accelerate, the drivers would persist in their roadhogging. I usually have to move to the left lane to overtake as it would be foolhardy to compete with them. My life would be in danger and the lives of other road users as well. Besides, I would be violating the law. I wish we could have anti-roadhogging stickers distributed to drivers to promote a safer driving experience on the roads. Hwa Kin Kin
  20. I always meet drivers on the road who usually drive like 2 cars length behind but at the moment they see you signal to cut lane, they will speed up to cut you off.... So much so that it makes me don't want to signal, which is dangerous. What I do now is signal and then 1-2 sec later cut before the other driver can react. Any such drivers around? why do people do such things? Another kind of driver I REALLY hate is those illegal stopping cars which causes jams. They think by just turning on hazard lights they can park anywhere....
  21. Had a weird encounter with an angmoh biker this morn at chancery. was going up chancery hill and to make a right turn to chancery lane when the biker appeared on my left, there was a Q to turn so i let him go 1st. i was in easy mode tdy and cruised along at 50, keeping 2 cars away from him and he was also 2 cars away from e car in front of him... some 200m later he put his hand behind himself asking me to back off? i was like wth/wtf? i wasnt even tailgating! anyway, jus as i was about to make a left to jln pasiran, he opened his visor, prob wanting to F me verbally, but i turned anyway and he went along straight... duh? jus wan to get it off my chest...
  22. Hey folks, anyone saw tha accident along PIE (towards Changi) before Eunous exit last night aroung 1030pm? 3 car chain... I was very blessed not to be the 4th car, just managed to e-brake (ABS activated) and stop just about 2m behind the 3rd car. am so so glad i wasn't speeding and was about 2-3 car length away, anything less i think kena liao and thank God it didn't rain last night cos if the road was wet, most likely cannot brake in time. anyways i know no amount of advice will discourage people from speeding and tailgating, only through personal experience then will realise the danger/risk behind it. anyways just sharing from a personal experience.
  23. Was driving toward Jurong along PIE at about 4.50pm on the outer lane (1st Lane) at a speed of 100km/h. When reaching the overhead bridge off Jurong Town Hall Road (PIE), spotted on my rear view mirror a "White Sportage" travelling very fast toward me. In no time, it caught up with me and was tailgating me for about 600 meters and I decided to pull to the centre lane to let it overtake. What do you know, he wave thanks .... A very kilat Sportage indeed with number SJH 6*** and it turn left to the direction of Coperation Road from PIE. Till we meet again along PIE ...........
  24. why ppl Tailgate? Tailgating is no good, when the person in front jam brake, the tailgater might knock onto him and he got to pay the repairs if so, why do ppl tailgate? is there any advantage to it?
