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.

    Should cyclists be allowed on the road?

    The Year 2030  “2030” is a synonymous year for all matters environmental-related. If you have read my previous article, "2030 might be the end of the world for car enthusiasts and the sports cars they love”, you would be familiar with the Singapore Green Plan 2030 (SGP 2030). If you have not, feel free to read it: In addition to phasing out Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicles and encouraging the adoption of Electric Vehicles (EV), the government is also promoting sustainable living by encouraging cycling as a mode of transport.    The government has set a target to triple cycling paths from 460km to 1,320km by 2030, hoping that this network would provide cyclists with a safe and comfortable journey within and between various towns in Singapore.    Cycling in Singapore  In recent years, the uptake of cycling as a leisure activity and a mode of transport has sharply increased. This is evident from the increased sighting of cycling enthusiasts, otherwise known as “Tour De Singapore” cyclists and food delivery riders alike.    Furthermore, the banning of Personal Mobility Devices (PMDs) on roads as of 3rd April 2020 has also incited users to switch to bicycles or Power-Assisted Bicycles (PABs), which also contributed to the increase of cyclists.  The Cyclist Segmentation  I learned something rather intriguing yet insightful — Not all cyclists are the same.    Yes, they are all cyclists on the road but their intention and behaviour are grossly different.   “Tour De Singapore” cyclists are those that cycle to maintain an active lifestyle, which can be for leisure purposes or as a mode of transport. More often than not, this segment of cyclists will be riding on their road bikes which can easily hit 20km/h or faster. Their key objective includes clocking in a certain distance during their session (Eg. 20km), completing an entire cycling route (Eg. SG round island route, Marina Bay Loop) or even hitting a personal best for their cycling speed.  Conversely, the key objective for food delivery riders is pretty straightforward — to complete their order in the fastest and most efficient way possible.   And lastly, the final segment of cyclists — Young Punks (YPs) and their fixed-gear bicycles. Frankly, I have no clue as to why they are even on the road. This group of cyclists definitely do not deserve to be on the road, as their bicycles do not even have brakes equipped. These YPs lack the proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as helmets to make things worse.    Why Cycle On The Road?  From my understanding, there are two main but non-exhaustive reasons why cyclists prefer riding on the road:   Cycling on the road is smoother, as compared to cycling on pavements.   Certain bicycles, such as road bikes, are made to travel fast. Therefore, cycling on pavements or park connectors are unsuitable due to their speed limit restrictions of 10km/h and 25km/h, respectively.  The Black Sheep  They are everywhere. There is almost no escape from encountering these black sheep from the cycling community.    The list of black sheep curated on MyCarForum’s Blog category is sufficient to explain the point I am trying to bring across. Just take a look below:  Notice how all these incidents took place while the cyclist was riding on the road? MMMM...  If you wish to see more instances of black sheep from the cycling community, do a simple search in the search bar of MyCarForum (Refer below).  With the anonymous identity of these black sheep, there is almost no way they can be held accountable for committing traffic offences. The most that could happen to them is getting caught in the act by the police/LTA or being “trended” from online dashcam submissions of these black sheep. Otherwise, they will probably get off scot-free.    In most vehicle-cyclist accidents, the driver would be penalised regardless of who is at fault. However, there are certain occurrences (Refer below) where the errant cyclist is penalised for his wrongdoing.    Despite not being penalised, the driver remains the ultimate loser as the cost of repairing the damaged vehicle will remain borne by him. This frustration undoubtedly creates a sense of anguish and helplessness among drivers whenever a cyclist flouts traffic rules. “Praise is fleeting, but brickbats we recall”  Unfortunately for the cycling community, the presence of black sheep across the various segments has created a typical stereotype on cyclists regardless if they are responsible road users or not.    Sadly, the notorious reputation of cyclists is so deeply ingrained in the public’s perception that it may no longer be possible to remove that stereotypical notion.   For every kind act performed by a cyclist, there are always many others whose actions serve as a disservice to the cycling community. After all, it is in human nature that we remember the wrongs as compared to the rights.  According to the Road Traffic (Bicycles) Rules under the Road Traffic Act (Chapter 276, Section 140), cyclists should practice the following while riding on roads:  Ensure bicycles are equipped with working and functional brakes.   Wearing a suitable protective bicycle helmet securely while cycling.  Using hand signal to inform traffic of the cyclist’s intention (Eg. To stop, slow down, proceed left/right)   Travel in a single file at all times. Unless on a lane with two or more lanes (in the same direction), travelling abreast is allowed.    Cycle as near as possible to the left of the road.   Cycle in an orderly and safe manner and obey the flow of traffic.   If cycling during hours of darkness (7 pm – 7 am), your bicycle must be equipped with appropriate lighting at the front and rear.  In other words, unless the cyclist is an individual with traffic knowledge (driving/riding license) and can ADHERE STRICTLY to the Road Traffic (Bicycles) Rules under the Road Traffic Act (Chapter 276, Section 140), cyclists should be OFF our roads entirely.   If you are interested, feel free to read the online copy of the Road Traffic (Bicycles) Rules under the Road Traffic Act here: https://sso.agc.gov.sg/SL/RTA1961-R3#pr5-.     --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Watch this BMW cut across two lanes in front of THREE Traffic Police officers

    Here's a rare occurrence - A BMW driver actually using his signal when changing lanes! Maybe it's because of who's behind him?  Watch the full video below to find out more! The incident took place along Paya Lebar Road, at the junction of Arumugam Road, before Caltex station. A rare occurrence A BMW 116i can be seen in the video, using his signal lights, and changing lanes from lane 2 to lane 4 to turn into Caltex. However, behind the BMW is not just one, BUT THREE TP ON THEIR BIKES. NGL, but the sight of TP bikes on the road somehow cause anxiety to road users (Touch your heart, don't say they don't). Definitely a head-turner As the BMW hatchback changes lanes, honking from disgruntled road users can be heard. You can see all three TP officers staring and observing the BMW. Luckily for that BMW driver, he wasn't stopped by any of the TP for his actions. It must have been one stressful drive. Wouldn't want to be in his shoes. Netizens' comments LMAO NGL the BMW driver is either ignorant or not experienced enough to "chu pattern" in front of three TP behind him.  100% Agree, being gracious and courteous goes a long way.    --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Cyclists in two separate videos disregard the red light and experience instant ragret

    Within the past 24 hours, two unrelated cases of vehicles knocking over cyclists have surfaced on Facebook. The only thing constant in the equation? Both cyclists disregarded the red man and cycled across the road anyway. Both incidents took place yesterday (July 5), with the first one being at Choa Chu Kang and the second one at Sembawang. In the first video, a female driver was driving straight ahead across a road junction along Choa Chu Kang Dr after noticing that the light had turned green. However, she noticed that a cyclist had dashed out as she was accelerating, which led to her hitting the cyclist.   Take note: there is loud screaming and graphic content in the following videos.  In the second video, a taxi was seen performing a right turn at a road junction in between Sembawang and Mandai Road when it hits a cyclist that was crossing the road at a red light.  Despite the roads being busy in both videos, the cyclists thought that they were able to beat the red light and just YOLO-ed their way through. Honestly, if I were them, I would be in constant "ragret" over this one stupid decision.  Netizens' reactions It didn't take long for netizens to express their sentiments with regard to both incidents. As for the taxi driver (in the second video), many netizens shared their frustrations with the cyclist for not following the rules. We hope that all parties involved in both accidents are okay and will post any further updates if necessary.    --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Car owner explodes at valet driver and terminates his services mid-trip for beating the red light

    TL;DR – A valet service turns sour for a car owner as her valet driver beats a set of red lights, and she loses all cool when he tries to attempt to do it a second time. Turn up your audio for this one.   Adulting After having a couple of drinks, if you drove to your destination, the responsible adult thing to do would be to call a valet service to pick you up and drive you home. Which is what this car owner did. But I would say her experience with the valet service was less than satisfactory and borderline horrific. The video Watch the 1min 16second video to understand what I mean. Red light 1 In the early seconds of the video, you’ll notice that the car beats a set of red lights. If the light had just turned from amber to red, I would have given the driver the benefit of the doubt. However, it’s evident that there was more than enough time to stop, but he didn’t. Even the owner of the car could sense something was going awry. Red light 2 Now I’m going to try and translate the conversation (to the best of my ability) for the non-mandarin speaking readers when the valet driver tries to beat the second set of red lights. We then hear the owner slam the door as she gets out to head over to the driver’s seat (presumably). Here’s the original post by the owner of the car which has gone viral. Online chatter I would not like to be on the receiving end of that shelling.     -------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.
