Traffic dispute convinces many that cyclists are getting out of hand

Traffic dispute convinces many that cyclists are getting out of hand

Are cyclists getting out of hand these days? 

We'd say so as more and more videos of cyclists ignoring traffic rules and getting angry with other road users have been surfacing. It doesn't help as COVID has encouraged more people to workout, with cycling fast becoming one of the more popular choices/excuses to get out of the house.

According to SG Road Vigilante, this incident between 2 cyclists and the camera car happened on 30th August 2020 at 17:15 along east coast road. As the road is a single lane road, SGRV claims that the camera car wanted to overtake and horned at the cyclists that he/she is proceeding with an overtaking maneuver.

Unfortunately, the cyclist wasn't happy and started some 'ah-beng taunting' actions.

Do you think the cyclists in the videos are self-entitled? Or do you reckon the driver should have just queued up and drove slowly behind them? Let us know!

I think this cycling issue is just like the chewing gum issue. Without a ban, the issue won't be solved because we have too many black sheep, some Chao AM think they are the boss here. I believe if LKY was to be around, he will be firm on resolving such recurring nuisance.

The user who pay road tax is being bullied by the people who don't pay road tax... Bicycle should be banned on the road.

Just like the PMD incident in which a pedestrian died before the ban was enforced, nothing will be done until perhaps one fine day, a lorry bull dozes its way through a convoy of cyclists cycling 2 to 3 rows abreast.

someone gotta  start a petition to get LTA to consider licensing these cyclists so that cyclists can be covered by insurance in times of an accident. Otherwise these cyclists will have no liability for the harm they bring about, no duty of care and treat the road like their 'ah gong'...  

I seriously reckoned it is about time that LTA starts to consider and make the road a safer place for all users...

    Not sure how to parallel park? Here's a guide if you need a refresher

    If you find parallel parking challenging, here's a step by step guide to refresh yourself if you feel like overcoming your fears. Seen on ROADS.sg and contributed by Syed Al-Qudree,  this very comprehensive guide even though some might argue that it is not easy to judge the distance between the front car and yours when you are pre-positioning in Step 1. Do you think the guide is helpful?

    Should these people be charged for using these parking lots as well?

    Now this is an interesting sight.

    As we have mentioned before in previous blog posts, the COVD-19 pandemic has somewhat influenced many who are forced to stay home to start working out as an excuse to head out. Hence, when we went into Phrase 2, there was a noticeable increase in traffic at our parks as many still continued to enjoy exercising, leading to some to come up with new ideas to move away from the overcrowding in parks. Check out this clip which has been shared by SG Road Vigilante, whereby the camera car chanced upon this public outdoor carpark at Fort Canning on the 9th of September which has been 'converted' into an outdoor gym. With the carpark almost full, we bet the sight of those using the carpark as a workout area annoyed the camera car driver. What do you guys reckon? Cool or not cool? Let us know!

    Netizens dig out black Golf GTI driver's former antics

    Remember the black Volkswagen mk5 Golf GTI that was spotted racing on CTE at night with an Mitsubishi Evo X before causing a van to crash and flip? Here's a recent cum compilation video of the GTI causing havoc on our roads. As you guys can see these are some pretty reckless driving. A big no-no when dashcams are everywhere. And yes how could we forget the ever-increasing number of Facebook pages that shame bad drivers. Naturally, the comments section on SG Road Vigilante's page has its supporters slamming the driver. On a less serious note, the GTI is a pretty good point and shoot car with its fast-acting DSG box and turbo engine eh?

    Have you ever been so mad you gave a camera the middle finger?

    In our fast-paced and hectic society, it is easy to get triggered when unexpected things happen to you as we can see from this video that has been posted on SG Road Vigilante. In this video that was shot in Yishun a few days back, we can see a van which is the camera vehicle, coming to the rear of a Volkswagen Scirocco. While waiting for the gantry to be lifted, the car rolled back as one pair of its wheels were on a hump. The van driver gave the car a tap of its horn, triggering the Scirocco driver to come down and confront the van driver. For those who have no experience with dual-clutch gearboxes, some, if not most, have the tendency to roll back if the car is on a slope as the car behaves very much like a manual car in start-stop situations. Hence, the Scirocco driver wasn't trying to reverse on purpose.  Was the horn necessary? Was it necessary to follow so close to the Scirocco seeing that he had trouble at the gantry? And was the van driver guilty of tailgating out of the carpark? Or was it simply just a case of an ill-mannered Volkswagen driver having a bad day? What do you guys reckon? Let us know in the comment box!
