Sensitive cyclist does not like to be honked at

Sensitive cyclist does not like to be honked at

TL;DR – Cyclist flies into a rage and blocks traffic when cam car driver honks at him. Yet another road rage incident by a cyclist who thinks he owns the road.

 

I’m all for keeping fit and healthy. If people think cycling does that for them, I’m no one to judge. But, when it starts to endanger the lives of others, we need to draw some lines.

Let’s take today’s video for example

We have a cyclist who raises his right arm, indicating he would like to turn right.

Under the rules and guidelines for cyclists, there’s no wrong there - 100 points for you sir.

But why did he not check for oncoming traffic from behind?

Putting up your hand does not automatically give a cyclist the right-of-way to ‘suka suka’ change lane and endanger other road users. You still need to check your blind spot for cars, yes?

Even when you’re driving a car or riding a motorcycle, you still need to check your blind spot for vehicles if you signal left or right to make a lane change or a turn.

And why so angry?

The video has no audio, but from the body language of the cyclist, it’s pretty apparent that the cam car driver honked at the cyclist.

The cyclist proceeds to get off his bike, obstructs the cam car and challenges the driver to come out to confront him.

This cyclist deserves an A for effort at following the rules and regulations but going through the motions without situational awareness is a fail.

Till the next one!

Years back, I remembered I was driving up hill on a two way lane and a cyclist was cycling in front of me and took half of the 1 lane. I gave him a light honk him to warn him that I am behind. And he pointed his middle finger to me. 

To me, it is not how I react to it. It is more about these cyclists common sense and upbringing. 

It is like a case of you warn someone danger and he blame you for warning him. Hahaha. So let them fall into the shit hole.

From what I see on the road there seems to be more and more bicyclists on the roads. Its about time the authorities start looking into widening roads where possible and implementing bicycle/pmd lanes. Bicycles and pmds are a danger on the roads and measures should be taken to protect both them as well as other motorists. Just my 2 cents on the subject.

    Good Samaritan saves petrol attendant from a scheming S.O.B customer 👿👿👿

    Ladies & Gentleman, I would like to have your attention for a minute. As I was surfing the net to look out for newsworthy content (actually, I am looking out for goondu blueSG drivers) to share with everyone, I happened to chance upon the 'crook of the century' bullying a petrol attendant by insisting that he only asked to pump $15 worth of petrol instead of a full tank. Fortunately, Kelvin the Samaritan, who shared this piece of news on social media after, decided to help the petrol uncle attendant out. Here's the recap of the post. Kelvin the Samaritan paid for the petrol. I do not have much information about what had happened, but here's what I think went down:   Be gracious toward others. We don't really have a lot of information about the driver of the Toyota Altis, but what I have always been taught is to be gracious toward others. Your car will use the petrol inside the tank at the end of the day, so even if the petrol attendant pumped wrongly, you will still get to use it. If you think of it in another way, the petrol attendant also helped you to save more time going to the petrol kiosk later!  $15 petrol I just went to fuelkaki to check on our fuel price, Ron 95 is priced at $2.41 the cheapest. At max he can only have 6.5L of petrol, Let's say the Toyota Altis can have a fuel economy of 12km/L. So roughly after travelling 74km, he will go back and "full-teen" another petrol already. Please arh. Stop arh. Beat your backside then you know. Kudos to Kelvin And a huge shoutout to Kelvin who helped the petrol attendant in such a situation. You deserve a cup of coffee from us! If you see this, look for Uncle Koba.

    EVO vs GTR shenanigans along MCE

    TL;DR - An EVO and a GTR duke it out along the MCE to see which is the faster car. Is there any doubt which would win in a race? Let’s find out in this 13-second video that we found on Beh Chia Lor's Facebook page. Spoiler alert If your money was on the GTR. You’re absolutely right! What about speed cameras? These two drivers are pretty ballsy to race along the MCE, where numerous speed cameras lie in wait to catch speedsters. For those who are not familiar with the speed limit on the MCE – it’s 80km/hr. These two cars are definitely going way past 80km/hr. Online chatter Err. Okay can. RIP. LOL. WOW. I didn’t even notice that till I read this comment. Super observant.

    BMW M5 caught speeding and beating a red light in Eunos

    A BMW M5 was caught speeding recklessly and beating the red light along Still Road on Wednesday (June 9) night. The 39-second clip shows multiple views of the speeding vehicle from a camcar that was at the traffic junction. According to the Road Traffic Act, drivers caught speeding will be awarded demerit points and a composition fine. After watching the video, there is no doubt that the BMW had exceeded the speed limit. Drivers who are caught exceeding the speed limit by more than 40km/h would receive 12 to 24 demerit points, along with a mandatory prosecution in court. Additionally, beating the red light will incur a fine of up to $400 and another 12 demerit points.  With the recent news of actor Gurmit Singh receiving an $800 fine for speeding, I had expected Singaporeans to be more mindful and to avoid speeding on empty roads. Netizens' reactions Honestly, the few minutes that you save on your trip is not worth the consequences that come along with it. Be it an exorbitant fine or a potentially fatal car accident, you would have wished that you didn’t speed in the first place.
