  1. 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.
  2. This cute, 24-second video could have turned horrific in a heartbeat. What dog? In this video, we see a man chasing his dog across the road. I’ve tried to identify the breed of the dog, and it looks like a Maltese or a Maltese mix. Image by orvis.com The playful dog prances around its owner evading capture. Under normal circumstances, this would be a cute scenario (watching the helpless owner failing to catch the dog and even falling on the road is quite funny). Enter truck But then, the dog, oblivious to traffic, almost gets run down by a truck. The truck manages to swerve out just in time and saves the pooch from doggy heaven. What the people say Yes owner. Get a leash.
  3. So, I chanced upon a video posted on ROADS.sg Facebook page with the caption: "Posting as video witness. Lorry driver changes lanes without signalling or checking blindspots, causes Pizza Hut delivery rider to slip and fall to avoid collision. Wishing rider speedy and full recovery. Happened along Thomson Road on 12/01/2021." My first thought: What exactly is it about turn signal / indicators that makes them so difficult to use?! Whenever an incident occurs, only the first party would know what exactly happened, however, some Facebook users felt that the lorry driver wasn't in the wrong: Indeed, when you take a closer look, it does seem like the slippery white line on the road might have contributed to the Pizza Hut delivery rider's loss of control of the bike. Whether the delivery rider fell because of the slippery road conditions, he was forced to react in a split second (likely after a long tiring day of riding in the rain)to save his own life, all because the lorry driver didn't felt the need to use his signals. At the end of the day, we should always be considerate on the road, nobody can read your mind, if you want to make a turn or lane change, is it really that much to expect everyone to use their signals?
  4. Now we bet the the driver of this truck will be regretting really hard about driving after having some drinks. Spotted on Beh Chia Lor's Facebook page and some of our Whatsapp group chats, is this video of a trailer truck crashing into an HDB block at Block 152 Yung Ho Road. It happened on 16 Nov 2020. Thankfully, the tree that the truck knocked down managed to stop it from crashing into one of the first level HDB unit. Rest In Peace, tree... The truck driver has since been arrested for drunk driving. Netizens' comments were naturally not kind to the truck driver... 34c5433d-4976-4664-8e03-ca6af42dface.MP4
  5. I encountered an incident where I came across this driver in distress at petrol station. His rear tyre punctured, he tried to change tyre himself but he's unable to take out the tyre for some unknown reasons. I tried to help him by trying to call for tow truck to tow car to a tyre workshop This incident happened in pasir panjang road. I also dun know the nearest tyre shop the, except alexandra village. But this incident is at 6.30pm. But I realised I got no tow truck contact! Anyone know any tow truck contact? I realized if i'm the one desperate for help, I will be stuck like that driver.
  6. This near-miss accident prompted me to post this topic. I was driving along KJE towards Tuas around noon today, weather was hot....I was in middle lane, on the left lane were mostly trucks and heavy vehicles. The truck in-front of me had a bursted tyre and pieces of rubber debris were flying out from the truck. Instinctively, I braked and swerved right onto the next lane, just as a huge chunk of tire goes under my left wheel. In my rear view mirror I saw other tire parts behind me. It was a narrow miss. If I was riding a motorcycle/scooter, I might not be at home written this now. Most of these debris come from retreaded tires. Retreading is a process that saves money by shaving down old tires to their casing and attaching and bonding a new exterior. Retreads tire will save the owner $$$. Those of you frequent KJE/BKE will agreed that the rubber debris is getting more and more these days. I think it is time that authority do something against this hazard, reducing these debris on our road should be a top safety priority. The problem is serious and it is costing lives. Be careful out there and stay alert.

    2017 Mercedes Benz X Class

    Bro Mustank, specially for you. Since it is from MB, sure got Diesel option. Daimler's Mercedes-Benz arm continues the development work of their first mid-sized pickup truck and our spies were there to catch them in the act. Just like the Renault Alaskan, Mercedes’ new pickup truck is based on the underpinnings of Nissan’s NP300 Navara and will reportedly enter the market under the GLT moniker, starting from 2017. The car you see in the photos is a test mule still carrying a lot of the Nissan’s body panels but we can clearly notice the wider front and rear wheel arches. Unlike other re-badged examples we’ve seen, the GLT is being developed and designed solely from Daimler to meet the specific needs of its customer base in Europe, Australia, South Africa and Latin America. The company gave us a good idea of how the final car will look like by releasing a teaser sketch image last year, along with the promise of high levels of utility combined with “the comfort, safety, and design of a Mercedes-Benz passenger car”. Mercedes still considers offering their new pickup in the US and if they do, the GLT will probably be made at Nissan’s factory in Mexico to avoid tarrifs. The company is also going to build it in Renault’s Argentinian facilities and at the Nissan plant in Spain for the regional markets respectively. Expect a range of four- and six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, with entry-level models getting a six-speed manual and the rest a seven-speed automatic gearbox, with power sent to all four wheels permanently.

  10. Any idea? I thought I saw a murano v6 with 1.
  11. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrYRjV1ijvAThe Red Bull-sponsored Kamaz 4326 is arguably one of wildest racing vehicles on the planet. The 20,000-pound truck has a 1000-horsepower 16.2-liter turbo-diesel V8, 16 forward gears, and enough torque to tear down a building. After winning the Dakar rally back in January, the Kamaz is back for some high-flying snow-filled action. Red Bull released a promotional video yesterday of the Kamaz being driven by 2013 Dakar Rally winner Eduard Nikolaev through a snow covered northwestern part of Russia for some shakedown testing. For the 4326, that means a whole lot of airtime. Thanks to the truck's 11.8 inches of suspension travel and huge spiked ice tires, it's able to launch off snow jumps and drift around frozen corners with ease. Sure, this video is just an advertisement for Red Bull to sell more energy drinks, but it's just too cool not to share. Watch for yourself as the diesel-powered behemoth takes flight over the frozen landscape.

    Inconsiderate act at car park

    My mum was blocked by a car traveling in the opposite direction so that they could take a parking lot. the arrow shows that the car is coming from opposite direction. What was infuriating was the stare of the driver n occupant when in the process. However this was at a HDB carpark. would submitting to traffic police work? Do they govern carparks, I reckon so coz it is technically its still public roads? I have never made a report like this before. I could send the vid to the tp once i figure how to cut the long clip. thanks in advance for any advise.

    Fox Truck Suspension

    Bros and Sisters out there, anybody have lobang or contacts for fox suspension system for trucks? Many Thanks
  17. But why is it that the TP not doing his job? What if a motorist falls because of the debris? And it was not only one TP, there is another one coming from behind on a big bike but was not captured in my cam. Maybe i am wrong, is the LTA's job?? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zp9qnHTZMyA
  18. 28 casualties is quite serious... SINGAPORE - The driver of a private bus was trapped in his vehicle after it collided with a tipper truck on the Marina Coastal Expressway (MCE) on Tuesday evening. The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF), which received a call about the incident at 6.17pm, freed the man using hydraulic rescue tools. There were a total of 28 casualties, but no fatalities. Thirteen people were sent to the Singapore General Hospital, nine to Tan Tock Seng Hospital and six to Changi General Hospital.
  19. Was traveling at NSHW today from Malacca and encounter this close shave. Some of the debris hit my car number plate and caused some chip on it. Was thanking my lucky stars that things did not turn out worse than it is. Debris could have flew higher and hit my car/windscreen, the truck could have served into my lane or even worse, flip. Also thankful that the car behind me wasn't that close (but I usually keep a constant lookout to make sure I am not blocking anyone) so when I braked, it had time to react. Didn't jam brake as I doubt the car behind could react as his view of the situation was likely blocked.
  20. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xh67v56iqQALast year Mercedes-Benz showed off a futuristic truck concept fitted with an autonomous system dubbed the Highway Pilot that enabled it to drive itself along stretches of highway, safely and efficiently. And this year the automaker showed an updated version of the concept, one that more closely resembled a production truck, and demonstrated its self-driving capabilities on some Nevada roads. Now Mercedes is showing a production-ready truck equipped with the Highway Pilot, both to the media and German government officials. The truck is one of Mercedes’ Actros models, and it’s the first production-ready truck to drive autonomously on a highway. The special drive took place this week on a stretch of German Autobahn between Denkendorf and Stuttgart Airport. Behind the wheel was Wolfgang Bernhard, Daimler’s head of trucks and buses, and in the passenger seat was Winfried Kretschmann, the Prime Minister of the German state Baden-Württemberg. Right now the truck is only allowed to travel autonomously in a test phase but according to Mercedes the technology is ready for production. For its initial test, Bernhard drove the truck from a service station out onto the Autobahn. As soon as the truck entered the flowing traffic in the right-hand lane, its Highway Pilot switched on and was able to take over full vehicle operation. During the test, the truck meticulously kept to its lane and maintained the optimum distance to the vehicle in front of it. When the truck finally reached the exit for Stuttgart Airport, it asked Bernhard to take control. The test was then repeated in the opposite direction. Along the way there were road works to deal with. At this point, the truck in advance asked Bernhard to take control. Once the truck cleared the road works, however, Bernhard was able to reengage the Highway Pilot system. Crucially, if there was no reaction from Bernhard, the truck would bring itself to a standstill independently and safely, Mercedes says. Making this all possible are complex computer processing and multi-sensor fusiontechnology. The sensors include radar and stereo camera monitoring systems capable of reading the road up to 820 feet ahead. As for when we might see something like the Highway Pilot system available in showrooms is still up in the air. The current hurdle is a familiar one: legislation. Mercedes says it is maintaining dialogue with all possible stakeholders in autonomous vehicles, from government officials to business owners, and suggests that some form of fully autonomous driving may be available by 2020.
  21. Anybody Owns/Bought a 2015 Navara Np300 pickup truck? As titled, would like to check if you guys manage to buy a season parking on normal open space carparks! Thanks!
  22. This afternoon, 23 July 2015 @ 1250 hrs, was on my way back to office in Jurong Island. At the junction of Sakra Road and Jurong Island Highway, a tipper truck suddenly turned when I entered the junction. Luckily I was able to brake on time. To think I nearly died. My_Movie.wmv

  25. It seems that self driving cars are getting closer and closer... Self-driving trucks have been given the nod of approval in the US under a landmark new autonomous technology trial. The state of Nevada has granted a licence for trialling fully autonomous Freightliner semi-trailers, in a clear indication that self-driving trucks could become legislated before passenger cars due to their operating in a "less complicated traffic environment". Under the trial conducted by Daimler, fully autonomous trucks will be permitted on certain Nevada highways, gathering valuable data from the real-world conditions.
