Singapore — A video of a car skidding across the road while exiting the East Coast Park (ECP) made netizens wonder if the driver was trying to drift.

However, things didn’t work so well for the BMW driver, who skidded on a bend instead of drifting while exiting the ECP.

“This exit is very dangerous. My friend who’s staying at the block next to it always rudely awaken at night by the accident at this area due to sharp bend,” wrote Facebook page ROADS.sg on Monday (Jan 3), sharing feedback from the cam car driver.

The driver recording the scene on a dashboard camera witnessed the possible dangers along the sharp bend previously mentioned.

The BMW ended up mounting the kerb on the road divider, halting to a full stop in front of the cam car driver.

The cam car driver reminded motorists to drive slowly at the particular exit, especially on rainy days.

“Always ensure you have good tread depth on your tyres. Bald or 80 per cent balding tyres will not serve you well on wet roads,” reminded ROADS.sg.

“Never save on tyres as this is your only safe contact with the road. Having an accident because of balding tyres is a more costly affair.”

In response to the post, netizens highlighted that the “sharp bend” in question was not dangerous at all, given that countless other drivers have passed it without issues.
