blogentry-133713-0-98128400-1502187923_thumb.jpgOnce in a while, we will meet drivers who will be road hogging in lane 1 on the highway. As much as it is annoying, there is nothing much we can do.

 

However, the authorities in the state of Nevada are hoping to end the issue by fining people who travel below the speed limit in the overtaking lane.

 

According to the article on Carscoops, the traffic police will be slapping first time offenders with a $50 (S$68) fine and the fines will rise to $250 (S$340) for third-time offenders.

 

The state came up with the law as they felt that lane 1 road hogs are one of the key reasons for road rage.

 

“What they will do is move over to the second lane, or middle lane. They will pass and then as soon as they clear the car, they will cut back in the fast lane, cutting the driver off that is going below the speed limit. And next thing you know, they are showing each other they are number one, and they are holding up the finger,” Nevada Highway Patrol trooper Dan Gordon said.

 

Here's us hoping a similar law like this will be enforced here in the future.

Singapore should also do this.

 

Let's be tough on law breakers.

One would get a fine driving below speed limit in Nevada but its fine driving below speed limit in Singapore. ;-)

    Lane-splitting between two vehicles? Don't be like this biker with no common sense

    For the uninitiated, you may be wondering why do riders practice lane-splitting? Well, at least according to riders, lane-splitting is a safer way of riding.  However, what many riders are unaware of is that lane-splitting is only safer if performed PRUDENTLY. Watch this video to see how this rider's practice of lane-splitting put himself in great danger: Notoriously Narrow Lanes This incident occurred along the Bukit Timah Expressway (BKE) towards Seletar Expressway (SLE). We are all aware of how narrow the two lanes are for all those who have travelled along the bend featured in the video.  Furthermore, the high heavy vehicle traffic along this route makes it even more hazardous to navigate around this bend.  As such, motorists often practice extra caution when travelling along this route.  What happened? Within seconds of the video, a motorcyclist is seen riding in between slow-moving vehicles. While in between 2 vehicles, the rider seemed to have panic-braked due to his inability to squeeze through successfully.  This resulted in the rider losing control of his motorcycle and hitting both vehicles to his side. Fortunately for the rider, he managed to avoid being involved in a potential freak accident.  I hope this serves as a learning opportunity for ALL RIDERS to practice lane-splitting PRUDENTLY, no matter how experienced one is.  Netizens' Comments This accident could have been avoided entirely.  Common sense ain't that common after all.  This one ultimate troller.     --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Honda driver hogs the road and ends up getting rear-ended

    This Honda road bully blocks the path of a large bus, randomly stops in the middle of the road several times and ends up getting rear-ended. There is nothing more annoying than a road hogger on a busy road, and that is what this poor bus driver had to experience. The video starts with the Honda driving slowly down the left lane, blocking the path of the bus driver. Annoyed with the car's behaviour, a man beside the driver is heard commenting "Just don't jam brakes. If not, I fall down leh.".  As both vehicles approach the traffic junction, the car suddenly stops with its hazard lights on. In an attempt to warn the car's driver, the bus driver presses his horn. However, the car remains still, which earns it a series of honks from other upset drivers as well. The bus driver chimes in with two long honks, which pushes the car to finally move off. The Honda enters the junction, swerves right, before switching back to the left lane quickly. At the same moment, the car is seen braking suddenly as the bus moves forward.  This leads to the bus hitting the yellow car from the back with a loud crash, which pushes it further up the lane.  At the last second, the car's driver angrily gets out of his vehicle to confront the bus driver.  Is road hogging an offence? According to the LTA and the Traffic Police, road hogging is considered an offence in Singapore. Drivers who drive in such a manner as to obstruct vehicles from moving at a faster speed will receive a fine of up to $1,000, an imprisonment term of 3 months and 4 demerit points. For repeated offenders, they will receive a fine of up to $2,000, an imprisonment term of 6 months and 4 demerit points.  Netizens' reactions  From the video, it is clear that the yellow car is the aggressor as the driver purposely stalls the flow of traffic and recklessly changes lanes (and jams on his brakes) without any warning. 😒 I hope that the TP sees this and invites him for a nice long kopi session soon.      --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Clueless Subaru Forester driver knocks down e-bike while exiting roundabout on the wrong lane

    Trust me when I say this - roundabouts are one of those places that you will frequently encounter either a clueless, confused or reckless driver. I've had my fair share of experience with these types of drivers at the roundabout located along Tuas Road.  This video is a prime example of a problematic driver at a roundabout: This accident happened along the roundabout at Suntec City.  What happened? In the video, a Subaru Forester is seen travelling on lane 2 of the roundabout, with an e-bike and a Kia Cerato right next to him on lane 1. All seemed well until this noob Forester driver turned on his blinkers at the last minute and made an abrupt lane change to exit the roundabout from lane 2. As a result, the e-bike rider was knocked down by the Forester driver.  Yes, I am pretty sure the Forester driver did not check his blind spot while performing this last-minute manoeuvre. Netizens' comments This is the sad truth - "Many people are still clueless about how to drive in a roundabout". Couldn't agree more.  Hello, did you remember to eat your medication???  For those people that share similar sentiments to this fella, do read the PSA below.  Public Service Announcement For those who are clueless about using a roundabout, say no more - I've got your back.    --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.
