Why Drivers Hate To See Cyclists
To all cycling enthusiasts and pro-cycling people, this 'PBK' in the video is one reason why drivers hate you.
Please watch this video (uploaded by SG Road Vigilante) and tell me whether you feel the rage I feel as a driver.

In this 0.29 second video, we see a cyclist doing a series of wrong things (in just 3 seconds)
1. He's cycling on a footpath when he should be on the road
2. He does not check his blind spot
3. He makes a 'lane change' to the road with total disregard to traffic
This incident happens along Mandai Road, near the Mandai Crematorium (which is where he would have gone if he had been run down).
What's worse, from the cam car's footage, it looks like it might have hit the KIA Niro in front that had to do an emergency brake (the recording cuts off before any impact, so I can only speculate).

THIS PERSON’S COMMENT ALL CAPS. I CAN FEEL THE ANGST.
