  1. Now I know why when you make a mess it’s sometimes called a skidmark. Watch this video to see what kind of mess the lorry and taxi made when they came together. What happened? On 1 May 2023, a crash involving a lorry and a Hyundai taxi took place at the junction of Bras Basah Road and Nicoll Highway in front of Suntec Convention Centre. It is unclear as to the causes of the crash as the two cars are faced away from each other. The lorry was facing towards the entrance of Esplanade MRT while the taxi still faced the direction of the road. Think of one of those diagrams for vectors in O-Levels (ughhhhh). The lorry has been flipped to its side, while the taxi is some distance away from it with an open fuel tank and missing its entire front end. I’m really confused by this crash because the taxi is some distance away from the lorry, facing a completely different direction than the lorry even after impact. But somehow it was not hit with enough force to flip the taxi over or deal more structural damage. The video also shows a glimpse of a deployed airbag in the taxi, but no signs of any one having been inside the vehicle. SCDF personnel were present to close off the scene and gather evidence from the taxi. The taxi also left a trail of fluids behind it and intermittent skid marks on the road. If the trail is wet, does it become diarrhea instead? We do not know the condition of the drivers or if any pedestrians were involved. Online chatter Many speculate speeding on at least one driver’s fault, with one commenter joking about testing the new F1 route. And of course, someone had to bring attention to the skid mark. ========= 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. The karma in this one was instantaneous. It hit like a taxi, in fact. What happened? An MPV tried to run a red light just in front of Lau Pa Sat at Raffles Quay. At this time, a taxi was moving forward as the green light had just come on for its lane. There was no visible attempt at braking on the MPV’s side. This resulted in a T-bone as the taxi was perfectly positioned to hit the side of the MPV as it was moving, causing it to lose stability and flip to its side. I’m also suspecting that it’s a variant of a Toyota Alphard because the front grille looks remarkably similar, but the fog lights are throwing me off. I also like how in the video the other cars stopped for a bit to take in the crash, and then moved on with their day and carried on lol. Online chatter There’s no sympathy for the speeding MPV of course. Some people were concerned for the taxi driver and the road. Writer’s thoughts: Besides that, do drive safely everyone. Better to be late than risk your health or a few thousand in damages (if you're lucky). ========= 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 – SMRT taxi abruptly stops on lane 1 of an expressway for reasons unknown and causes a massive chain collision in its wake before driving off, oblivious to the destruction it caused behind. There are idiot drivers everywhere Our latest example drives a SMRT taxi. Watch the video below to find out why. Here’s the rear-view camera footage The SMRT taxi abruptly stops just before an ERP gantry on lane 1. The alert cam car driver comes to a complete stop as well. One or two cars manage to avoid crashing into cam car by quickly changing to lane 2 before the chain collision occurs. Only Asian cars involved Besides the cam car (which I cannot identify), there’s a Mazda 3. A Toyota Altis. Or what looks like a Toyota Altis. (It became a hatchback after the crash). And of course, the unsuspecting Honda Fit (poor fella) that crashed into the Altis, causing the chain collision. Facebook Post by driver of Cam Car Online Chatter Upon exploring the comments, we managed to uncover a bit more about the incident. The cam car driver took the time to reply most of the comments. Maybe the taxi driver didn't notice what was happening behind him? He's still an idiot driver though. I needed to translate because my Chinese sucks. Yeah, this is the most likely scenario. If I’m not wrong, he’ll be claiming from the Mazda 3 driver and the Mazda 3 driver will claim from the Toyota Altis. Then the Altis will claim from the Honda Fit. But, what about the main culprit of this incident? The SMRT Taxi driver? ========= 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!
  4. TL;DR - A taxi and a lorry collided, sending the front bumper of the taxi out onto the bustling traffic of Orchard. A perfect example of great minds think alike - aiming for the same lane at the same time. Watch this 107-second video to see a flying bumper. So what happened? A ComfortDelgro taxi and a Sunshine Bread lorry were turning right into two different lanes when the lorry sideswiped the taxi, resulting in the taxi losing its entire bumper. The driver of the lorry then came out of his vehicle, hurling expletives and signaling gestures of unhappiness as he walked towards the taxi. Seems like man is all pumped up (with anger) for a fight. If you're kept abreast of road accidents in Singapore, you would know this path has seen quite a few accidents. In case you're heading to town, do take extra precaution when driving along this road. Online Chatter Some netizens are faulting the lorry for not staying in his lane/inching forward before turning, while others are blaming the taxi for not checking for safety before driving off. There are even some who brought LTA into the picture for the poorly designed roads here. Takeaway Lane markings are there for a reason, stay well within them and have good lane discipline. Apart from that, it is also imperative to always have an eye for blind spots (geddit?) ========= 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 Toyota Prius ComfortDelGro Taxi blatantly bypasses and ignores the red light signal, almost crashing into the camcar that actually had the green light to head right. Watch the video for yourself below 288511691_1185332418957332_3251873631534851933_n.mp4 The license plate number of the taxi vehicle was thankfully taken note of, to hopefully bring the driver of this taxi to justice. The consequences of his carelessness could have had fatal consequences, and it is definitely no laughing matter. It’s even more embarrassing as a public hire taxi representing the company name of ComfortDelGro. Netizen Comments Criticism of the taxi driver was immediately raised by netizens on Facebook comments, often pointing out the driver as irresponsible and reckless, as well as urging them to file a traffic police report to get him to justice What do the rest think? Do you think the driver should suffer due justice for his actions?

  6. A common car-sharing Getgo vehicle gets caught on camera blatantly ignoring the existence of the red traffic light. Strange since this seems like the fundamental essentials of driving theory. This resulted in the vehicle side sweeping an oncoming taxi and, hitting into it and resulted in debris inconveniently left on the road. It's extremely fortunate that this blatant disregard for traffic rules did not result in a more severe and damaging accident. It might be wise for Getgo to conduct further investigations into the perpetrator of this incident. Watch the video for yourself below 289067600_382536057067470_6736625153643993941_n.mp4 Netizen Comments Netizens seem enraged about the disregard for traffic laws, expressing their comments on the Facebook wall at SG Road Vigilante What are your thoughts on this incident? What kind of consequences do you think the Getgo driver should receive?

  7. Car sharing drivers have developed quite a bad reputation for their atrocious driving over the years. If you're wondering how bad they are right now, look no further. Here's a video that will make you facepalm yourself: What Happened? After failing to come to a complete stop at a stop-line, a GetGo Mazda 3 abruptly performed an e-brake to avoid t-boning a taxi. For some reason (most likely to give the Mazda 3 driver a death stare), the taxi stopped just in front of the Mazda 3. At this point, the Mazda 3 somehow gently rolls forward and collides with the side of the taxi. I am not sure about you, but this deserves a good facepalm moment. This incident serves as a prime example of the poor driving skills that the majority of car sharing drivers possess. Netizens' Comments MMMM..... 👁️👄👁️ Personally, I tend to avoid being around these cars. ========= 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. Transcab taxi drivers are notorious for their driving behaviour among the various taxi companies. It is an impression that the public has developed over time, which I couldn't agree more. Here's why: Warning: This video contains excessive flashing lights. If you have photosensitive epilepsy, please do not watch the video What Happened? In the TikTok video posted by the cam bike, a Transcab taxi furiously chases an Audi A6 down an expressway. From the cam bike's speedometer, the Transcab taxi and the Audi A6's speed was approximately 100km/h or above. While pursuing the Audi A6, the Transcab repeatedly flashes his high beam at the A6 for a prolonged period. The taxi driver's flashing rate was so fast that he might as well have turned on his high beam. NGL, regardless of what may have happened off-cam, the Transcab driver's actions suggest that he was itching for a fight with the Audi driver. Lane 4 Is The New Lane 1 With all this unnecessary drama and 'road hogging' on lane 1, a black car (who obviously couldn't give two shits) tore down lane 4 of the expressway at high speed. Judging from the cam bike's speedometer, I am not surprised if the black car was travelling at 120km/h or faster. Netizens' Comments 🤷‍♂️ Here you go! Just leaving this here for context. ========= 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!
  9. One can never take road safety for granted. There is a purpose behind inculcating a sense of road safety in us from a young age. Watch what happens when you take a chance and throw your road safety knowledge and guidelines out the window: What Happened? The accident occurred along Pasir Ris Drive 1, involving a taxi and a cyclist. A cyclist was cycling across a pedestrian crossing when a taxi performing a discretionary left turn started to accelerate as he approached the junction. Due to the lack of lights and reflectors and the dark coloured clothing donned by the cyclist, the cyclist's road presence was hardly noticeable. The taxi driver likely did not spot the cyclist while he was cycling across the pedestrian crossing. As a result, the taxi driver rammed into the cyclist rather forcefully, which sent him crashing headfirst onto the road. The Injury The cyclist injured his head, causing his forehead to bleed. He was subsequently conveyed to the hospital for medical attention. Who do you think is at fault? The taxi driver, cyclist or both? Netizens' Comments Indeed. NGL this is somewhat true. He's paying the price for forgetting the most important, yet cheap safety component. ========= 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. 'Crazy Taxi' is a popular game of the late 1990s to 2000s, which requires you to pick up passengers and drop them off at their location in the quickest time possible. It also allows you to drive freely and perform 'crazy stunts' to earn additional tips. Unfortunately, this one cabby took the game too seriously: What Happened? This peculiar incident occurred at the Dover Park Connector, where a taxi driver somehow drove his taxi in. I have no idea how he managed to accomplish such a feat. The only way to find out is to watch his dashcam footage (if he has). The taxi driver was spotted driving on the pavement along the canal, which attracted stares from pedestrians and cyclists. And yes, they were stares of bewilderment. Subsequently, the taxi drove up the pedestrian ramp, squeezing his way past some pedestrians. NGL, the journey up the pedestrian ramp reminded me of the S-course back in the driving circuit. Did He Get Out? Unfortunately, the video does not show if the taxi driver managed to figure his way out of the park connector. Considering how he managed to end up in a random park connector, I highly doubt he would be able to find his way out on his own. Chances are, he would require the necessary assistance of the authorities to navigate out of the park connector. Netizens' Comments After that day, he is never using the GPS anymore. @To all driving instructors, please don't bring your student driver here whenever the circuit is fully booked. Optimistic thinking. ========= 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!
  11. Taxi fares in Singapore poised to rise in March [SINGAPORE] First, bus and train fares. And now, taxi fares are poised to rise - as early as March. The Straits Times understands market leader ComfortDelGro, which controls 60 per cent of the total taxi fleet of around 15,000 cabs in the Republic, has signalled to the authorities its intention to adjust flagdown and distance rates. The Public Transport Council, which has to be informed of fare changes, has yet to respond to queries from ST filed early Thursday (Jan 27). Currently, taxi flagdown fares are mostly S$3.70 for diesel taxis and S$3.90 for petrol-electric hybrids. And for every 400m thereafter up to 10km, the metre goes up by 22 cents. Beyond 10km, the distance fare rises by 22 cents every 350m. At its last fare adjustment in 2011, ComfortDelGro raised the flagdown fare of most cabs by 20 cents and distance fares by two cents per fare band. The planned adjustment is expected to be similar. As has been the practice, other taxi companies - Trans-Cab, SMRT, Premier and Prime - will adjust fares after the market leader. https://www.businesstimes.com.sg/transport/taxi-fares-in-singapore-poised-to-rise-in-march
  12. Cross-junctions have and always will be a dangerous section of any road. It is essentially an intersection with the most concentrated traffic, which poses additional hazards to road users. One such hazard is being a victim to vehicles that beat the red light, such as this one: What Happened? This unfortunate accident took place at a cross-junction along Boon Lay Drive. Firstly, let's take a look at an overview of the location below: Upon the green light signal, a ComfortDelgro taxi on the left lane, intending to travel straight, gradually approached the junction. Just then, a lorry from the right beat the red light and smashed head-first into the driver-side of the taxi. The lorry was travelling at a relatively fast speed as it seemed to have gone full-throttle and accelerated in an attempt to beat the red light "successfully". NGL, the impact of the collision was a rather strong one. Both vehicles came to a complete halt moments later, after striking a kerb. A Sitting Duck The taxi was essentially a sitting duck that had no way of mitigating the danger posed by the oncoming lorry. Despite the traffic signal that indicated it was clear for the taxi to proceed, its view of the oncoming lorry was completely obstructed by another lorry on the discretionary right turn lane beside it. Be it to perform an emergency brake or swerve; it was almost impossible for any driver to have responded in such a situation. Here's wishing the taxi driver and all those involved in the accident a speedy recovery! Netizens' Comments GWS😰 Tell me about it. Especially all those commercial driving on lane 1 of the expressways🙄 The last time I checked, being a victim of an accident is not a good thing.

  13. There is a saying that goes like this: "If you are not angry when you drive, you are the one making others angry." It is true to a certain extent, except that it is more towards being annoyed than being angry. However, for this particular taxi driver, he may have taken that quote a bit too far. Watch the video below to see how he expresses his anger towards a fellow motorist: Warning: The following video features plenty of Hokkien vulgarities, voice cracking and inaudible shouting. Watch it at your own risk! What Happened? The incident occurred along Jalan Sultan. Apparently, the Honda Odyssey driver cut from the extreme left to the extreme right lane (taxi driver's lane) without checking and almost caused an accident. The Honda driver's behaviour angered the taxi driver, which prompted the taxi driver to honk him. Unhappy at being honked at, the Honda driver stopped in the middle of the road, impeding the path of the taxi driver. Subsequently, both drivers alighted from their cars, and they began to exchange a series of glorious expletives. Below is a brief and translated version of their confrontation: A Mere Coincidence? IMO, the taxi driver ain't no angel either. It feels as if he was out to pick a fight with the Honda Odyssey driver for cutting into his lane. And somehow, there wasn't any footage of the Honda driver performing what the taxi driver claimed he did. That's a bit too coincidental, isn't it? Netizens' Comments Seems like the taxi driver was seizing the opportunity to vent his frustration on the Honda Odyssey driver. Sorry, I snickered at this comment. @Honda Odyssey driver Pls upload your dashcam footage. ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook!

  14. Nothing beats heading home after a long day of work. Unfortunately for this woman who was on her way home from a night shift, she encounters a taxi driver who she accused of looking at her breast through the rear-view mirror. Watch her as she confronts the taxi uncle here: What Happened? A woman accused her taxi driver of looking at her breast through the rear-view mirror, as she could see her chest in the rear-view mirror from her Point of View (POV). This sparked to a confrontation with the taxi uncle to which she asked in an angry manner, "Why you put on my breast?" The accusation continues for quite some time before the taxi uncle re-adjusted the rear-view mirror to face the car's roof. Despite re-adjusting the mirror, the confrontation continues. Moments later, the woman abruptly commands the taxi uncle to alight her at a 7-Eleven by the roadside. Before the video ends, the woman was persistently demanding the taxi uncle for his name. Now Here's The Fun Part, Let's Shed Some Facts! The following was the description she provided in her user-submitted content: Two main points question the reliability and authenticity of the woman's recount. Point #1 The woman stated that she was heading home after her night shift, at around 8-ish in the morning. However, a simple screenshot of the video at 3:04 shows that the taxi's Mobile Data Terminal (MDT) indicates that it was at 6pm. (Refer to the image above) And I am pretty certain that these MDTs are pretty accurate as it serves as a taxi metre to calculate the total trip fare. Point #2 Initially, the woman stated in her recount that she was heading home after a night shift. However, at the end of her description, she states that she is an unemployed mother to 4 kids. Contradictory much? All that said, these two points are sufficient for me to doubt the woman's accusations. What is your opinion on this matter? I would love to hear what you guys think! Netizen's Comments Sadly, the taxi uncle does not teach physics😪 'Troublemaker' is the word you are looking for! Thank goodness she doesn't drive😰 ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA
  15. From a young age, we were taught to avoid "monkey see monkey do" actions by our parents, caretaker, or guardian in the hopes that we do not perform any actions without thinking about consequences. Unfortunately for these two drivers, it seems like they did not pay attention when they were young. Watch this video to find out why: What Happened? A cyclist, Transcab taxi and BMW X1 were stationary at a traffic junction, waiting for the red light to turn green. After observing how the junction was clear from traffic, the impatient cyclist moved off and beat the red light. Seeing how the cyclist proceeded, the taxi driver blindly followed suit, also beating the red light in the process. And amazingly, the BMW X1 did the same thing! The cam car can be seen 'high-beaming' the taxi to alert the taxi driver while it was moving off. But it was to no avail. The Consequence I guess it's a matter of time before the taxi and BMW X1 driver receives their 12 demerit points and $500 fine each. Thank you for contributing to building our nation! As for the cyclist, it's near impossible to identify him due to the absence of any form of identity. And judging by that, I am quite sure he'll get away scot-free. Netizens' Comments LMAO. EXACTLY. Oh wells. 🤷‍♂️ Both drivers bak chew tak stamp!! ========= Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA
  16. ComfortDelGro is offering its passengers the option to be insured against accidents or covid for $0.30 per ride Some features: - coverage for personal accidents such as accidental death and permanent total disability of up to $50,000 for 24 hours starting from the time they board the taxi - $500 cash payout for anyone who has taken the COVID-19 Polymerase Chain Reaction test and is tested positive for COVID-19, within 14 days from the date of the ride; and is hospitalised to receive in-patient treatment for a consecutive period of at least three days after testing positive for COVID-19. 30 cents, you will pay anot?

  17. *Disclaimer: The conversation below is satire, written for entertainment purposes only.* Here's how it all went down: What happened? A ComfortDelGro taxi was spotted driving on the pavement in the vicinity of MBS and the ArtScience Museum. This puzzling incident drew the attention of many onlookers, who were curiously staring at the taxi as he navigated his way around the area. WHUTTTT... Taxi drivers may have developed a notorious reputation for being improper and reckless road users over the years. This incident has just added one more to this list – RIDICULOUS. Seriously though. No matter how bad of a driver one is, how on Earth can someone even end up driving along the pavement outside of a shopping mall/Museum??? Is this a case of GPS misguidance, or did the taxi driver happen to navigate his way up the pavement after getting lost? I guess this incident unveils a flaw in MBS' signage and security framework. Netizens' Comments What a bunch of savage comments, the person filming wasn't spared either. I LOL-ED at this comment. If you didn't get it, its related to the cycling craze where people started "drawing" animals on Strava (GPS-based Application) as they cycled around Singapore. Maybe can consider upgrading to the Hyundai Kona Electric SUV – Off-road capability + Reduced carbon emissions. --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

  18. The age-old debate on whether cyclists should be allowed on the road continues. Watch this video, to find out why the debate never ends: The incident happened along Nicoll Drive, in the vicinity of Changi Beach Park. The video was from the cyclist's perspective, who was cycling relatively fast at the said location. What happened? As the cyclist approached a junction, a Comfort Delgro taxi emerged from the filter lane. However, the taxi is seen not stopping at the stop line. The cyclist's fast speed, coupled with his late reaction caused him to be unable to stop in time. As a result, he ended up colliding against the side of the taxi. Yes, having a set of good brakes for a bicycle or car is necessary, but what is more important is to practice defensive riding/driving at all times. Upon seeing how much the inconsiderate taxi driver inched out to the main road, the cyclist should have either slowed down or swerved away from the taxi. Netizens' comments No, don't tell me, "You think they fix Brembo?". If the cyclist's brakes cannot perform at the speed at which his bike is capable of going, don't ride it at all - It is a safety hazard to the cyclist and other road users. That's like having drum brakes on your Honda Civic Type R 🙄 I can't stop stressing the importance of defensive riding. The aftermath Shortly after the collision, the drivers of a black Porsche and white BMW could be seen stopping to help the injured cyclist. Below is an account of the cyclist's experience: Kudos to those 2 guys that helped the injured cyclist!! Yes, cycling may be a fun hobby that keeps you healthy. However, it is not worth risking your life over it. If you really want to "enjoy" the speed and ride on the road, remember to wear proper safety and equipment. Whenever possible, maintain a safe speed and slow down near junctions. PS. Did I mention how apt the NDP2021 theme song, "Road ahead" was in the video? --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

  19. An impatient Mercedes taxi driver repeatedly honks aggressively at cyclists and recklessly drives like a 10/10 a**hole. On Monday (Aug 9), a group of cyclists were cycling along the junction of Thomson Road and Balestier Road at seven in the morning when they encountered a rude taxi driver. The Mercedes taxi driver could be seen tailgating the cyclists as they turned right at the junction in the video. He aggressively honked at them despite not being in the same lane as the cyclists. Towards the end, the taxi suddenly sped up and cut in front of the group. The taxi then took the left filter lane towards Whitley Road without observing the proper safety distance. LTA's rules and regulations for cycling on the road While the cyclists received backlash for riding on the roads, it seemed that they were following the proper rules and regulations. They were wearing helmets, rode in a single file as close to the left-hand edge as possible and switched on their front and rear lights. They were decked out in national colours and did not use any mobile communication devices while riding on the road. Netizens’ reactions While there is a stigma towards cyclists, there is no need to be such an a** towards them. If the taxi driver wanted to warn the cyclists, he could have honked once instead of continuously honking at them. Besides that, his reckless behaviour could have resulted in a severe accident on National Day.
  20. TRANSPORT operator SMRT will bring in its first batch of 300 electric vehicles from July this year, as it aims to replace its entire taxi fleet with electric vehicles within the next five years. The fleet of electric vehicles to be launched could include various models well suited to meet the demands of the transport market. These could include sedans, station wagons and multi-purpose vehicles, SMRT said in a press statement on Tuesday. Going electric with taxis is part of SMRT's growth strategy in green businesses under Strides Mobility, its sustainable urban mobility services arm. This strategy includes developing sustainable mobility solutions and introducing mobility services using electric vehicles, including taxis, cars, vans, limousines, motorcycles and buses. Said Tan Kian Heong, president of SMRT Road Holdings: "In line with Singapore's Green Plan, we are excited to be among the first point-to-point transport operators to commit to the deployment of electric taxis on a large scale. This is a key part of our plan to incorporate principles of sustainability into each of our businesses to bring sustainable urban mobility services to our customers." https://www.businesstimes.com.sg/transport/smrt-to-progressively-replace-taxi-fleet-with-electric-vehicles-within-five-years
  21. Two pedestrians jaywalk across a junction in Bangkit Road and almost lost their lives. In this short clip, two men jog across a pedestrian crossing on a red light. As they almost reached the other end of the crossing, a yellow taxi quickly zooms past them. The vehicle nearly hits the uncle at the front, who notices the car and slows down for a second. The camcar follows the taxi as it slows down further up the road, with the driver claiming that the taxi uncle had the fright of his life after encountering the two jaywalkers. Although the taxi had the right of way, the driver should have practiced defensive driving and slow down when approaching the junction. Just because the light is red for pedestrians does not mean that there won't be any jaywalkers around. However, there is no excuse for jaywalkers to think they own the road and that the vehicles will slow down for them. Jaywalking is an offense in Singapore and it merits a fine of $50 for first-time offenders. Personally, I think the most entertaining thing in this video is the adorable way that the uncle slows down when he notices the taxi as he jaywalks/jayruns. The manner in which he crosses the road is mildly feminine as well, which raises some eyebrows. Netizens' reactions TBH, I don't feel like there's a need for these two men to jaywalk across the junction. Why so 'kanchiong'? If they were any slower, they would have been caught in a terrible accident and the driver might lose his license. --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

  22. A taxi driver falls victim to a van driver's road rage when he obstructs the path of the van driver. There are two videos of the incident. 1. Taxi driver's POV 2. Passenger of the taxi's POV The taxi driver's POV The clip starts with the taxi driver moving off after dropping a passenger at Loyang Rise. As there are numerous cars parked along the lane and obstructing his right of way, he decides to travel on the opposing lane. He notices a black van from afar and stops his vehicle, hoping that the van driver will let him pass before moving on. However, the van proceeds to move forward and blocks the taxi's path. WhatsApp Video 2021-07-28 at 9.30.06 AM.mp4 The passenger's POV Now, let's have a look at the passenger's perspective. We can hear the taxi driver honking at the van as the van intentionally moves forward despite the taxi obstructing its path. The van driver honks back in retaliation before hurling vulgarities and shouting at the taxi driver. This left the taxi with no choice but to reverse and angle his car slightly towards a small gap in the middle of the road to let the van pass. The passenger has also stated that the driver kept trying to intimidate the taxi uncle while he tried to give way to him. Before the taxi driver could properly reverse and adjust the angle of his car, the van impatiently tried to go around the vehicle and ended up hitting the taxi's side mirror. The taxi driver sounds this off to the van driver only to be answered with a string of vulgarities yet again. Netizens' reactions Even if the van has the right of way, the driver's behaviour was abysmal and disgusting to watch. There is no need for aggressive remarks while the other party is trying to let him pass. --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

  24. We thought ComfortDelGro taxi drivers should be the most well-mannered taxi drivers on our island based on service standards, but this driver's actions made us stop and think. What made us think otherwise? This video of a very pissed-off taxi driver confronting the cam car driver for sounding his horn at him. Rewinding back to how it all started, the cam car can be heard sounding his horn at the taxi driver after a passenger gets off at a sheltered crossing. The taxi driver then proceeds to move off slowly, triggering the cam car driver to toot his horn in impatience. The taxi driver does not react to the first horn which leads to a few more horns from cam car. This is where it gets interesting. The taxi driver's pissed off at this point, he takes his time to slowly drive into the carpark and stops on the second level to confront the cam car driver. We don't really know what happened after the taxi driver got off his taxi since most of the clip is on mute. Thankfully, no one got hurt in this road rage incident. Could this have been avoided if the cam car just overtook the taxi at the shelter? Let us know! Not an isolated incident That is not the end of the story though. Someone else has also been a victim to the same taxi driver's road rage.
