Thread: Another accident @ Rochor/Bugis junction

  1. #1

    Default Another accident @ Rochor/Bugis junction

    Just saw the video, exact spot & same situation like the infamous Ferrari incident.

    Taxi (again) spun after being hit on the rear by a speeding car from left.

    I wonder if LTA ever looked into the traffic light timings on that area, if they didn't, they better do NOW!

    Anyway, spooky stuff. You guys be careful on the corner.

    Here it is:

    Bad luck for the taxi that got hit. But this accident has nothing to do with bad luck. Caused by a fool behind the wheel of the Lexus, assuming he indeed beat the red light.

    Driver was DUI. How do you expect LTA to cater for such cases?

    Unless the traffic light is mismatch until sibeh jialat, this is another case where the driver just happily drive through red light..

    Anyways the police already arrest the Lexus driver for drunk driving.

    Had said that in the thread on Ferrari crash. Maybe a bug in the computer coding that after 3am the traffic lights in that area go out of synch.

    There was no clarification that the blood test for alcohol in the Ferrari crash was taken from the deceased's body and not from the crash scene. So I don't buy the idea that the Ferrari driver was not intoxicated. Because it ploughed straight into the taxi. No matter how fast the car was speeding, it would be a natural reflex action to want to avoid a crash. If he was not intoxicated, the driver would have tried to swerve ever so slightly. This reflex action is subconsciously controlled and instinctive - there was no way he could NOT have done it if he was not intoxicated.

    If the taxi drive 1mph slower, it would end up like the ferrari incident. Hope he is fine..

    They should speed hump ++ the stretch, red light camera n speed camera the stretch.

    They should just ban the driver a lifetime for drunk driving, beating red lights, and potentially causing grievous harm.

    Fines are no solution if you can easily foot the bill.

    Yep only saw he's drunk after that. Good that he's arrested & luckily no fatality this time. What happened to the drink, don't drive mindset? When I go for drinks, I won't drive. It's just not worth losing your license or hurting others.

    That machi might have swerved @ the last split sec as he seemed to swerve slightly to left, hitting the front of the cab but he shouldn't be doing this kind of speed in CBD. No news from the passenger as well, who's the main witness & probable "aiding manslaughter" charge.

    In any case, this shows that any cars can kill. It's the driver.
