If you drive early in the morning along our expressways, you will see plenty of trucks, buses, vans, etc.. travelling at speeds well above the legal limit of cars, if you know what I meant. And, yes, unfortunately, there are no traffic police around to deter such reckless drivers in the wee hours. Truck drivers that ferry workers are the worst culprits as the trucks are without proper protection. What really boils is these drivers will overtake you at breakneck speed on Lane 1 even though they are not allowed to. Cheap thrill.Rolling Eyes

Especially those FT drivers....drive fast fast machiam they owned the whole road or perhaps they treat the road here like the road back at home.

By which time, it would have been too late... at least for the poor innocent chap who happened to be at the wrong place and wrong time.

Dont see any reaction in the press about the report in news.  I guess TP will take a while to find out who the hell is these 2 mad 'ex' drivers...

I find speeding slightly above speed limit is ok, of course not racing kind of speed... Worst are those reckless drivers.

Want to speed do it the safer way... dun get others involve...

Need to have an official complaint lodged, better yet, a couple of similar complains from all the drivers around.

And similarly videos attached.

They can have access to the road monitoring cams.

How many do bother to send it officially?

I did once when I saw a car driving against the flow of traffic at Bt Batok Imdustrial Park but unfortunately I could not take picture as it happen too fast. I wrote an email to TP and was told to provide photographic proof so that action can be taken. M reply to TP was if i take a picture wouldn't I be committing an offence too since I was driving. So in Singapore, evidence is definitely required not see, talk and write. The best evidence would be a video recording.Smile

The driver of the black car is pretty skilled to have avoided losing control of his car completely ... that being said, he is a complete and absolute moron for driving like that on a public road ... complete disregard for safety of others, and while the first incident in the tunnel MIGHT be taken as speeding and losing control, the incidents outside the tunnel show a definite INTENT toward causing an accident

I am normally quite reserved about screaming for other people's blood, but the driver of the black car definitely needs to be taught a lesson in restraint ...

I don't think the black car driver knows what he will get into, nor how to control the car properly, almost out of control. He dont even know the limits of his car nor his skills or judgement, even on a straight and dry road. That said, only a moron will drive like that on normal roads. With complete disregards for the safety of fellow motorists, i agree with you that they (including the Merc driver) need to be taught a lesson with action from the Traffic Police.

There are speed traps inside the tunnel but only at certain spots. One can speed after getting pass the camera but be warned, I once got a warning letter from TP stating that i was travelling above the limit at 82km/h. 

i think one should practice self restraint as there are idiots on the road everywhere. I had a bad encounter this morning as well with a lorry cutting into my lane TWICE. First time was damn close and I have to horn and jam brake to avoid collision. That idiot again cut into my lane again without signal. Haiz. I just drove on and silently cursed him to death. As for direct confrontation, it won't get us anywhere except ending up in quarrels or fights. 

Take a deep breathe and enjoy another day with your love ones cos everyday is a precious day.
 You did the right thing without confrontation or retaliation. Just move on, as there are better things waiting for you and more meaningful things to do.

Agreed. It was just pure luck that the driver in the black car avoided a collision, not skill. Braking hard and then wrenching the steering wheel to one side is a perfect recipe for disaster. Escaped twice some more. He had no idea how lucky he was, if either the Galant or the Merc hadn't held their line and reacted like him... game over.

The driver in the second video executed the same manuever, sadly, he wasn't so lucky.

Surprisingly, seen the same S shaped reaction of the car even at slow speeds. This was up a spiral carpark like Shaw Centre. Driver hits left side of the wall, and then oversteers into the right side of the wall. Every spiral carpark bears such marks, first on the left, then the same coloured scrapes are on the right a few meters on.

Too bad TP doesn't make defensive driving courses compulsory. Any idiot can drive fast in straight line.

With the media coverage, quite sure the driver will be found. Definitely more than meets the eye. Something must have happened earlier to trigger such rash behaviour

Hosay Liao. Drivers Kenna hauled up by police for further investigation. Hope TP suspends their license for life.

These two jokers were making a mockery of LTA & TP ... Wonder why that stretch of KPE tunnel does not have Digital Laser camera installed ... scratch
