A video was seen on social media of a reckless driving incident which happened on 11 Nov 2021 at around 1626 hours.
A Toyota Hiace bearing the vehicle plate number GBD4579M was seen driving at lane 2 of the expressway and failing to keep the required two car lengths distance, especially when the traffic was heavy and already seen slowing down.
The Hiace is also believed to have been speeding as seen in the video.
It resulted in the Hiace rear ending a Toyota Vios in turn, rear ended the Audi in front of it due to the impact from the initial knock by the Hiace.
As a result of the collision, the Toyota Vios could be seen going out of control as it swerved and moved towards the left which was followed by a ‘bang’.
A quick search online on motorist.sg states that ‘usually 1st lane is used for overtaking and emergency vehicles. But it’s recommended for the vans/commercial vehicles to use 3rd lane or in other cases, 2nd lane as long as they don’t hog the traffic.’
