  1. TL:DR – A Singaporean-registered Altis and a Trans cab travel on the fast lane of the causeway, but only the Altis gets apprehended by the Malaysian police. There are no shortcuts in life. Likewise, in recent times, there have been no shortcuts on the causeway. If you’re sick and tired of waiting in the queue, you can always try your luck on the fast lane. You might get away with it, and you might not. Just like these two vehicles in the 43-second video below. What happened? A Trans Cab followed by a red Altis cuts into the car lane from the fast lane of the causeway. The Trans cab successfully merges into the queue, whereas the Altis did not have much luck as three officers eventually surrounded it. Unspoken rule I was very curious as to how the Taxi managed to evade capture. Some of my colleagues mentioned that public transport (buses and taxis) could travel on the fast lane. I even saw some comments that supported this claim. I tried to search online for material that could further support this hypothesis, but I found myself hitting dead ends. No official document from any authoritative body states that taxis are allowed to use the fast lane. So, I’m still stuck with my question of “HOW?” Maybe the comments section can enlighten me. Online Chatter It looks like netizens are as confused as I am. What is a lucky escape? Or a ‘close one eye’ situation for taxis? ========= 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!
  2. TL;DR – A Toyota Altis travelling on the fast lane of the CTE towards Woodlands suddenly found its bonnet flipped up. Never have I ever seen something like this happen on the roads before. Watch this 30-second video to see what bizarre incident occurred along the CTE recently. What happened A Toyota Altis travelling on lane 1 of the CTE/SLE (towards Woodlands) came to a halt as its bonnet got flipped up! Some possible theories? 1. As the caption of the post suggested. The Altis driver did not secure the bonnet properly before driving off 2. The Altis driver was travelling at an insane speed, and the wind caught blew the bonnet up 3. The catch of the bonnet is loose and needs a replacement Whatever it is, it’s still a rare sight. This driver needs to buy the CNY Toto draw. Sure huat.

  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. TLDR; road markings were ignored, traffic laws were blatantly flouted, Toyota Altis gets T-boned. Watch the video for yourself below Footage was caught of a white Toyota Altis breaking traffic rules by refusing to stop at the stop line and heading straight at a junction when the only options were to turn left or right. He managed to get his penance when he was collided into by another blue car….hard. Debris fell out from the impact onto the open road. Hope both parties got out of this incident safely, though from the video it does seem like just the vehicle was damaged. Next time it might be best to remember that stop lines and traffic rules are there for a reason, hopefully, the Altis driver can learn his lesson from this. Next time he/she might not be so lucky to come out unscathed Simply slowing down at a stop sign is not sufficient, according to the highway code, it is actually necessary to come to a complete halt. For driving or riding against the flow of traffic as indicated by traffic signs, as the Toyota Altis did, the driver is liable to a penalty of 6 demerit points as well as a $200 - $250 fine, depending on if you’re a light or heavy vehicle. Netizen Comments Netizens have also flocked to express their opinion on the matter and criticize the Toyota Altis for its actions. ========= 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. I understand that not all drivers and cyclists get along, but isn't it better to give way than to endanger the lives of others when you're in the wrong? https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=271869238455173 On Saturday (March 12) night, two or three cyclists and the cam car driver were cruising down a road in Yishun when they encountered the reckless driver. As the group went by a petrol station, they spotted the Toyota Altis turning out. After failing to give way to the cyclists and the cam car, the Altis immediately brakes after it turns out. This scares the cyclists, who swerved to avoid a head-on collision with the thoughtless driver. They could also be heard yelling 'Oi' at the driver in the video, which provoked him even more. Continuing on their route, both cyclists and the cam car sped up and overtook the car. The cyclists then looked back to check on the location of the raging driver as they hurriedly peddled. This upsets the Altis driver, who immediately sped up and recklessly merged into their lane - just to step on his brakes. His pride must have been seriously hurt as the cyclists deftly avoided his attacks, resulting in a second attempt to block them (and almost running one of the cyclists over). The way the driver tries to get the cyclists reminds me of a classic Tom and Jerry scene. The video ends with the Toyota Altis turning left and exiting the road. Netizens' reactions Netizens were divided on placing blame after watching this video. Some condoned the driver's reckless actions while others condoned the way the cyclists were cycling on the road. While watching the video, it is possible that the cyclists provoked the driver by shouting at him for not giving way to them. Yep, I think the blame is 50/50. While the cyclists were quite rude (and took up the entire lane after overtaking), the driver endangered the lives of everybody when he played his petty games. At the end of the day, the moral of the story is that no matter whether we are drivers or cyclists, we all need to show some compassion and be gracious while on the road. ======== Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news, and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  6. A 'chiong sua' driver tries his luck to run a red light and ends up t-boning another vehicle. The incident occurred yesterday (July 26) at a junction along Stamford Road. As the cam car stops at the junction, a silver Toyota Corolla Altis rushes past the vehicle on its left after failing to conform to the red light signal. While the driver managed to avoid hitting the two cyclists at the pedestrian crossing, it ends up T-boning a yellow Toyota C-HR. For those who are unfamiliar with the term, a T-bone accident occurs when the front of one vehicle strikes the side of another. Netizens' reactions TBH, while I have never encountered a 'kanchiong' driver before, I think what the Altis driver did was really stupid and reckless. He should have his license suspended for causing a major accident that could have been easily prevented. --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

  12. Borneo Motors (Singapore) Pte Ltd, a subsidiary of Inchcape Motors Pte Ltd, recently launched the New 2011 Corolla Altis 1.6-Litre with Dual VVT-i. With over 37 million units sold in 143 countries, the world's No. 1 has just got better with enhanced performance, better fuel efficiency and a new bold and stylish look. Together with improved levels of cabin comfort , quietness and engineered with Toyota's DNA of quality, durability and reliability, the new Corolla Altis promises a superior driving experience on the road. With that being said, the writers at sgCarMart could not resist the temptation of trying out the latest Toyota. Truth be told, it looks the same throughout, given the fact that changes were subtle. But it gives a totally different feel. It's more torquey and powerful than its specs suggest. Design The new Corolla Altis continually strives to be the leading sedan even after being one of the top-notch selling vehicles after 10 generations. Refined from inside out, the world's best selling car also comes with bolder and sharper looks. Featuring a new dynamic front grille with double concave lines, as well as sleeker headlamps and bumpers, looking sharp is part of being the world's best. Although Toyota said that with a wider rear and sportier design, the new Corolla Altis is designed to express a dynamic and sporty feel. But we feel it's more of the elegance than sporty as the Altis has a strong resemblance to its elder sibling, Camry. Refined Interior Nonetheless, the new car invites you into its bright and spacious cabin. You'll immediately appreciate its superior comfort and generous legroom, available both in front and rear seats. Convenient features are intelligently integrated into the stylish interior of the New 2011 Corolla Altis. They complement your journey by providing greater ease and functionality, all within your reach and a push of a button.
