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.

can't blame anyone here. It is used to be human walking on pavement and car driving on road. Now bicycle came along and it is everywhere. Made worse by e-bicycle. Our little dot is too crowded...

Thr Garment should forget abt shared path...and build bicycles only path. That way number of accidents sure decrease. Less danger to both pedestrains on pathway and drivers on road.

Must have carrot and stick approach.

Stop and help - light slap on wrist.

Hit and Run - 100% go jail + big fine

Let's see how the cyclists react in future.

    Honda Odyssey driver and taxi uncle stops in the middle of the road to exchange a series of glorious expletives

    There is a saying that goes like this: "If you are not angry when you drive, you are the one making others angry." It is true to a certain extent, except that it is more towards being annoyed than being angry. However, for this particular taxi driver, he may have taken that quote a bit too far.  Watch the video below to see how he expresses his anger towards a fellow motorist: Warning: The following video features plenty of Hokkien vulgarities, voice cracking and inaudible shouting. Watch it at your own risk! What Happened? The incident occurred along Jalan Sultan.  Apparently, the Honda Odyssey driver cut from the extreme left to the extreme right lane (taxi driver's lane) without checking and almost caused an accident.  The Honda driver's behaviour angered the taxi driver, which prompted the taxi driver to honk him.  Unhappy at being honked at, the Honda driver stopped in the middle of the road, impeding the path of the taxi driver.  Subsequently, both drivers alighted from their cars, and they began to exchange a series of glorious expletives.  Below is a brief and translated version of their confrontation:  A Mere Coincidence? IMO, the taxi driver ain't no angel either.  It feels as if he was out to pick a fight with the Honda Odyssey driver for cutting into his lane.  And somehow, there wasn't any footage of the Honda driver performing what the taxi driver claimed he did.  That's a bit too coincidental, isn't it? Netizens' Comments Seems like the taxi driver was seizing the opportunity to vent his frustration on the Honda Odyssey driver. Sorry, I snickered at this comment. @Honda Odyssey driver Pls upload your dashcam footage.     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    PSA: Walking under automated carpark gantries may cause injury (unless you're Usain Bolt)

    While Singaporeans were celebrating Halloween with cute costumes and fancy decorations on the 31st, one man suffered a painful consequence when he decided to cross under the arm of an automated carpark gantry. In this short video, a cam car exits an open-air carpark when he stops to let a pedestrian cross the road. Thinking he could make it, the man hurriedly jogs across and attempts to leave the carpark by going under the automated arm of the carpark gantry. To his dismay, the arm quickly swings down and hits him squarely on the head. Upon witnessing this incident, the cam car driver lets out a loud cackle as he moves forward to exit. The poor pedestrian could be seen rubbing the top of his head as he runs off in embarrassment. Don't try this if you're not Usain Bolt, the fastest man on Earth.  Netizens’ reactions While most netizens found the incident rather funny, some found the cam car driver's reaction to being a little too insensitive.  It's always sad to lose a couple of braincells, but at least it's nothing serious.     -------------------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Reckless Honda Civic driver weaves in and out of traffic on the expressway in a Fast & Furious Christmas special

    Because there’s nothing more Christmas-sy than getting a surprise visit from the TP. In a video posted on Christmas Day, a reckless Honda Civic driver decided to make his own Fast and Furious sequel on the TPE. With the cam car travelling in the middle lane, the driver caught the white Honda Civic dashing through the (snow) roads on the first lane. The white car swiftly overtook its left silver taxi, squeezing itself just in front of the cam car. The driver then recklessly cut in front of the taxi and sped up, with its left indicator shining strongly in the night. The Honda’s crazy antics led to a few drivers slowing down on the middle lane. Surprisingly, the taxi didn’t waver once throughout the whole ordeal.  Speeding and overtaking on the left? All jokes aside, the way this Honda Civic driver drove on the expressway is perilous and reckless. In Singapore, the speed limit for expressways and tunnels ranges from 80 to 90 km/h. Judging from the video, it looks like the Civic was doing more than the limit. Drivers who exceed the speed limit by 40km/h or less will be issued a fine ranging from $130 to $170 and up to 8 demerit points. On the other hand, drivers who exceed the speed limit by more than 40 km/h will have to be prosecuted in court. They will also be issued up to 24 demerit points. While overtaking on the left is not illegal, it is not recommended unless a road hog blocks the rightmost lane. Even so, overtaking on the left requires the middle and left lanes to be mostly unoccupied. Switching lanes and slotting yourself in spaces between two lanes is unsafe and could result in an accident if other drivers are not alert enough.

    Complacent cyclist ignores red light and gets wiped out by a Toyota Corolla on New Year's Eve

    Some would say that he got instant car-ma for disregarding the rules. In a short clip posted on New Year’s Day, an elderly cyclist boldly crosses a traffic junction when the light is still red. The cyclist then gets a nasty surprise when a white Toyota Corolla crashes into his bicycle. Hopefully, the uncle learns his lesson and will heed the traffic rules from now on. Who is at fault if a driver hits a jaywalking pedestrian? According to the Road Traffic Rules, if a pedestrian crosses any place other than a pedestrian crossing, they shall yield the right of way to vehicles. The same applies to mobility vehicle users, PMD riders and cyclists. However, at any controlled crossing, pedestrians have the precedence to free and uninterrupted passage over the crossing by drivers of vehicles approaching the crossing. It should be noted that this only applies when pedestrians are crossing in the same direction as moving traffic. Pedestrians shall not travel in any other direction unless they can do so without interfering with the lawful movement of traffic. Even though the driver has the right of way, personal injury lawyers have noted that the driver may still be held liable for any bodily injury claim from the pedestrian. This includes payment for their present and future medical bills, pain and suffering, mental anguish, and lost wages. If the pedestrian is found guilty of jaywalking, they could be held partially at fault for the accident. However, drivers are considered more at fault in a jaywalking accident if there was an opportunity to avoid the accident and didn’t take it. While it is tricky to ascertain who is at fault here, the cyclist should not have crossed the road on a red light and the driver should have slowed down when entering the junction. This applies even when the light is green for the driver, as one might not be able to react in time if jaywalkers are crossing. Netizens’ reactions That's right! It doesn't matter if you are a pedestrian or a driver, everyone must adhere to the rules. 😤 When you think about it, it really isn't fair for drivers, even when they have the right of way. It's tough being a driver. 😭 Hope the driver didn't injure himself from braking too hard! 😅      ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA
