Pedestrian jaywalks and gets immediate KO by car

Pedestrian jaywalks and gets immediate KO by car

Singaporeans spend so much time rushing here and there, living hectic lives. Sometimes, with everything that's happening, you neglect your own safety, and, in this case, you get put to sleep by a higher power. 

If you watched the recent Mortal Kombat movie, the way the jaywalker flew reminds me of this scene. But I digress. Let's get right into the video.

It's a sunny (風和日麗) afternoon along a 2-lane road. The right lane is congested. The cam car navigates his way to the left lane (I would too to escape waiting).

The cam car speeds up on the empty left lane and "Mr Ronaldo" (I'm going to call the jaywalker Mr Ronaldo) dashes out of nowhere into the path of the cam car.

BAM!

Ouch! What an impact. It looks painful, doesn't it? The impact is so strong that it even sends him flying and flipping before crumpling to an unconscious heap on the road.

The driver does not look like it's going extremely fast as he just started picking up speed not too long before Mr Ronaldo jumped in. Think of Mr Ronaldo like a tennis ball and the cam car as a tennis racket. That's rebounding at the maximum velocity right there.

Here's the full video.

While it does not look life threatening, I wish Mr Ronaldo a quick recovery and please watch out for traffic when you cross the road! Even better still, don't jaywalk!

LoL...these errant jaywalkers, cyclists are like cockroaches on the road. Pests.

They have tiny brains too.

Cross road must check and lookout for cars. What's wrong with pedestrians nowadays? Just dash across blindly?

Looks bad with that flipping and back landing on the curb.

    The first Nissan GT-R to travel from Singapore to Mount Everest is up for sale on sgCarMart

    In 2016, a 59-year-old Singaporean engineer drove his Nissan GT-R for 16,000 km from Singapore to the Everest Base Camp in Tibet and back. Now, the legendary vehicle is up for sale on sgCarMart! A grandfather of one, Mr Hoong, wanted to test the limits of the GT-R as stated by Nissan. The car manufacturer claimed that the vehicle is a supercar that can be driven by anyone, anytime, anywhere. Nicknamed Godzilla, the 2008 GT-R only acted up only once throughout the entire odyssey. According to the Straits Times, Mr Hoong took 22 days to arrive at the Everest Base Camp (North) with a Tibetan guide. He then took another 20 days to drive back to Singapore, clocking 16,000 km and 2,600 litres of fuel. Additionally, Mr Hoong made several modifications to the car for the journey. The full list can be found in the listing. Being the first of its own to travel to Everest from Singapore and back, the Nissan GT-R is currently going for $218,000 on sgCarMart. With 7 years of COE left, the 2008 Sports Car spits out 473 bhp of power with an engine cap of 3,799 cc. Equipped with a premium Bose sound system, the vehicle still has its original grey seats and is in tip-top condition.  If you're looking to own a piece of national history, check out the full listing here! *This is not a sponsored ad.

    Fatal accident with a young cyclist and Malaysian trailer along Marina East Drive

    On Monday (May 31) at around 4:25 p.m., a 14-year-old male cyclist met with a fatal accident with a Malaysian-registered trailer along Marina East Drive. According to the CNA article, the cyclist was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics. He had been riding a fixie bike, also known as a fixed-gear bike or a brakeless bicycle, which meant that the bicycle did not have any brakes. The Ministry of Transport announced the ban of such bicycles on public paths and roads in January this year.  The 37-year-old trailer driver has been arrested for careless driving causing death.  The photographs of the accident site posted onto SG Road Vigilante's Facebook shows the mangled bicycle torn into pieces. A screenshot of the trailer driver's outstanding traffic police fines was also posted on Facebook, showing that he had an unpaid amount of $600 from 2019. We offer our deepest condolences to the cyclist's family and hope that both drivers and cyclists will take more caution while on the road.

    Lexus GS300 doing his rendition of sway dancing while nearly kissing the wall, all with an expired road tax

    You know, usually when I think of swaying side-to-side, I think of something like this.  Side-to-side motion, everyone looking good and enjoying themselves. However, when it comes to our local roads, swaying side-to-side usually means this.... Yup. Someone new is getting their 15 minutes of fame today. First of all, a Lexus GS300? I'm giving you props for that as I personally quite like that car. After all, a creamy 3.0-litre V6 from Toyota producing 245bhp and 310Nm of torque in something that comfortable is nothing to sneeze at. What I unfortunately cannot commend you on is your driving, because not only is this Lexus swaying back and forth plus in and out of their lane, they damn near kissed the wall as well.  Looks like the Lexus just barely missed the wall too, the lucky bugger. My fellow motorist, if you are feeling rich and dare to risk damage to your car like that, would you mind donating it to me instead. There are a lot of things I would do with that money, starting with not driving like you so I wouldn't have to risk expensive bodywork to my car. Seriously, if you're tired or unable to drive for whatever reason, DON'T DRIVE. Do you know that you can be just as complicit for tired driving just as you are for drunk driving? When you are tired, your reactions are slow and dulled, and you are unaware of what's going on around you, thus making yourself a danger not only to yourself, but also to other road users. Research has shown that driving while tired is almost as good as driving under the influence of alcohol. Either way, it's not going to end well for you because you aren't in full control of your vehicle, making you even more susceptible to other users on the road.  But, there is still one more thing with this Lexus. How is it possible to not realise that your road tax has been expired for over 3 months? Either you have ignored all the notifications sent you with regards to this issue, or you are just plain ignorant and refuse to pay your dues. Whatever it is, Lexus driver, due to your appearance online, people are reminding you that your road tax has expired a really long time ago, and this should be enough prompting for you to get your road tax renewed.  Being a considerate driver is more than just signalling, not road hogging, and having good road manners. It also entails not putting the other road users around you in danger because you are unable to drive properly, thus causing more danger not only to yourself but everyone around you on the road. It's already stressful enough to drive in Singapore. Don't give yourself a reason to end up on this blog even though we do enjoy writing about your stupidity!
