Driver tries to drive through a pedestrian crossing, triggers Ang Moh pedestrian!

Driver tries to drive through a pedestrian crossing, triggers Ang Moh pedestrian!

A very blurry video has been uploaded on Roads.sg's Facebook page. It hasn't gone viral yet (at the time of writing this article) but, there's a massive potential for it to explode online.

Help me out here people. I'm very divided about this one.

It's a short 25-second video of a driver attempting to drive through a pedestrian crossing when the green man indicator is lit. This action angers an Ang Moh pedestrian and a clash of egos ensue.

If you haven't seen the video, here you go! Thanks, Roads.sg

 

The driver’s perspective

There's a noticeable gap/window for cars to drive through the pedestrian crossing even though you can see the blinking green man. The two vehicles in front of him went through with no issues. If it's safe to go through, why not right?

The pedestrian’s perspective

The Ang Moh pedestrian who came running up to stop the driver from proceeding must have felt that the driver was too impatient and should have just waited a little while longer before making the turn.

Clash of egos

The pedestrian then proceeds to block the driver until the green man turns red before walking out of frame. You’ve made your point, move along lah! Why need to do this? This isn't Hong Kong eh!

The driver, on the other hand,  keeps saying that "he has a camera". Pretty pointless statement in this case no?

Can you see why I feel divided on this?

What the people say

Next day newspaper headlines: "Body of man found swimming with the fishes"

Probably a joke. Probably.

The injustice of it all still lingers in the hearts of many like the death of Harambe.

I guess, in the eyes of the public, we know whose side they're on.

The driver needs a better dashcam though.

clearly the ang moh is in the wrong. it is a 3-lane crossing in which driver have discretion to go if pedestrian has yet to come to the particular lane.

The driver was just approaching the pedestrian crossing, I can't conclude he was going to dash across it. It was the stupid pedestrian that ran himself into the path of the car. Just a typical self-righteous AH.

The problem is no driver willing to dirty their car.

If we cannot assert our stance against these type of AMDK, it is as good as keyboard warrior

Well, whatever it is, we can't take the law into our own hands....don't sink to their level....things like orchard tower happens precisely because all parties can't think straight....

Nowadays, everybody is a keyboard warrior, just that some more than others. Whether you are criticising govt or some football club or other people's behaviour, we are all just keyboard warriors here...

Action speaks louder than words.  The only reason we are always bullied because we are perceived to be pussy.

Bullying. The ang mo is at a distance away and the affected car can still pass thru. With that kind of distance between ang mo and the affected car, he should never stop if the ang mo did not ran towards his car coz the car behind may bang into him. There are so much clearance for the first car  to go thru and who the hell would stop. The ang mo is just a trouble maker by running towards the car.  He should go back to where he came from if he don't like the people here.

    Traffic Police bike gets into accident while chasing offender

    Now this is not something the residents of Ang Mo Kio get to see everyday! A Traffic Police officer has apparently skidded on the wet floor and crashed his Yamaha bike at the lift lobby of Block 619 Ang Mo Kio. As reported by SG Road vigilante, the incident happened on 27 May 2020 and eye witnesses claim that the officer was trying to chase another motorbike through the void deck when the police officer lost control and hit the wall. The comments by netizens were generally supportive of the officer going all the way in the fight for justice, with the usual few negative views here and there.

    Fatal accident could spell the end of the discretionary right-turn!

    A video showing a white car failing to check for oncoming traffic while doing a right turn has gone viral. Unfortunately, the consequences were unpleasant as a Foodpanda motorcyclist was killed in the process.  The motorcyclist, a 41-year-old deliveryman from Malaysia, was unconscious when help arrived and eventually succumbed to his injuries at Ng Teng Fong General Hospital. He was reported to have been thrown 30 metres due to the impact and suffered brain injuries as a result. According to Stomp, the accident took place at the junction of Toh Guan Road and Boon Lay Way at 7.58pm on the 10th of March. The 36-year old Mercedes-Benz driver has been arrested for dangerous driving causing death. There has been a debate that discretionary right-turn junctions should be abolished as there has been an increase in accidents related to it. Could this signal an end to such junctions?

    Park properly otherwise it might bite you back!

    This is why we should always park properly. We were alerted to someone's posts on his facebook page, showing a BMW X6 XDrive35i badly parked at Jurong Point Shopping Center. Like what the photos show, the netizen who is presumed to be driving the Toyota Altis that is parked beside, barely had space to squeeze into his lot. The large BMW SUV had kind of edged into the page owner's lot causing him to be quite pissed.  By parking badly, and of course no thanks to the Altis driver, the BMW owner will be having lots of difficulty getting into his car.  So What do you guys think of this? Is it fair to 'punish' the BMW driver who ill-parked? Or do you think the BMW driver had made an honest mistake as it simply wanted to be further away from the lorry beside it?

    Someone is keen to show that their Swift Sport can do 180km/h on the CTE!

    Now this is not very smart. Thanks to social media apps like Instagram allowing news to spread like bush fire, you now best keep your 'bad' stuff to yourself... Check out this video of some mates videoing themselves going at high speed on our expressways in the wee morning of 10th May 2020. As seen on SG Road Vigilante, this insta story posted by n1zem, shows them going as fast as 180km/h in their Suzuki Swift Sport. Granted, the roads are pretty empty as we are in the midst of the Circuit Breaker period but there is still no reason for going this fast.  For those who are wondering, 'Naked Crew" is a local car group and they can be found on Instagram. As usual, the comments by netizens are harsh and probably a bit hurtful. 1.mp4
