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.

"Mr Ronaldo" 👇

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.

    Female cyclist hits uncle and leaves him lying in a pool of his own blood

    A heartbreaking post was posted on Facebook about an incident that had happened yesterday (June 16) along Yuan Ching Road.  According to the post, a female cyclist had hit a 68-year-old uncle as he was walking to his hawker stall and left him lying in a pool of his own blood. Passers-by noted that the cyclist was using her handphone prior to the incident and did not have proper lights on her bicycle. The man's daughter wrote a statement regarding the incident, stating that her father had hit his head and fainted upon the impact. He was then promptly sent to the hospital, where his injuries had shown that the impact was huge due to the fast speed of the bicycle.  Continuing her statement, she urged all cyclists to ride at a safe speed along pedestrian walkways and to install lights to alert senior citizens and other pedestrians of their presence.  She ended her statement with a plea for more cycling paths around the area as there are many senior citizens living in the estate. Netizens' reactions Many netizens expressed their well wishes for the uncle in the comments, with some reprimanding the cyclist for not helping an injured senior citizen.  We wish the uncle a speedy recovery too and hope that the cyclist would be brought to justice soon.

    BlueSG car uses instant torque to squeeze itself ahead on merging lanes

    A BlueSG car recklessly speeds up in a merging lane and forces the camcar driver (with his pregnant wife in the car) to swerve and prevent a collision. Like all electric vehicles, the Bollore Bluecar comes with instant torque which allows the vehicle to accelerate quicker than internal combustion engine (ICE) cars. You can clearly see the disparity in acceleration in the video. Let's look at some R&R (not rest and relaxation) But, at the end of the day, it doesn't matter how fast you can accelerate. There are rules and regulations that need to be adhered to. According to the Highway Code: In the case of this video, the camcar driver has the right of way as he was in front of the BlueSG car, which was on the yielding lane. Furthermore, there was no need for the BlueSG car to overtake the camcar as the road was not congested and there was no junction ahead.  However, there is the possibility that the BlueSG driver was rushing to save a few dollars due to the company’s rental plans. According to BlueSG, users are charged $0.36 per minute during their rental on top of a monthly fee, which explains why BlueSG drivers are typically seen rushing around all the time. Netizens' reactions Careless driving in Singapore racks up a fine of $200 and 6 demerit points. Just FYI.

    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.
